How to Reload the AutoCut® 2-2 Trimmer Head on the FSA 56



Step 1:
Safety First!

  • Make sure the unit is switched off
  • Remove the battery from the unit
Step 2:
Depress the two tabs on the side of the cutting head to release the cover.

Step 3:
Remove the old spool and clean grass, dirt and debris from the inside of the cutting head.

Step 4:
As you hold the new spool, guide each line into the holes on the side of the trimmer head and push the spool into place.

Step 5:
Replace the cover by aligning the two cover tabs with the two slots on the trimmer head. Push the cover until you hear an audible “click.”

Step 6:
Pull on both ends of the trimmer line to tighten up the slack. Cut off any length of trimmer line that extends past the line limiter.
