JD weed eater.... how to remove spool???

help2012August 19, 2012

Hey guys,

Just bought a JD weed eater # RCB600. .....at a flea market for 35.00........but no manual .

It starts with one pull ....But can not figure out how to get the spool off to add trimmer line.......... It does not come off like my old one did

........Anyone know how to take off the spool ???????.

1. See if this youtube or links on the right will help.


2. Please post a Pic of your trimmer's head.

3. I'm not getting your model specifically but here is another link.

I believe yours is a Homelite BC1600 (UT-15198), private labeled for John Deere. There should be a threaded knob on the end of the string head, which has a left-hand thread. Turn left to tighten and turn right to loosen. Spin it all the way out, and then the string spool should pull straight out.

Do a Google search on BC1600 or UT-15198 and see if the exploded diagram for the trimmer head looks correct.
