Re-stringing the Trimmer

One of my least favorite yard work chores is re-stringing the trimmer.

It is tricky to get the filament through the holes in the side and then press the spool down. Especially with the trimmer leaning against a tree. It usually takes me several times to get it, but it took me a few more this time. I should have endured the heat of the garage instead of the frustration 🙂
