How to Eliminate the SpeedSpool From a Troy-Bilt TB525ES
Like many versions of Troy-Bilt string trimmers, the TB525ES comes equipped with a SpeedSpool mind which makes reloading the spool with new trimmer line quick and simple. While it is not necessary to remove the mind to install pre-cut lengths of trimmer line, then you may want to remove the SpeedSpool head to clean it or to install a pre-wound spool to it to use with your trimmer. Even an inexperienced user may remove the SpeedSpool mind in a matter of moments.
Remove the spark plug wire from the spark plug to prevent accidental ignition of the device as you’re accessing the SpeedSpool head.
Catch the outer casing of the SpeedSpool with your left hand. Use your right hand to grasp and bend the bump head located in the middle of the spool counterclockwise.
Remove the bump head knob, interior foam and spring seal. Remove the internal reel in the outer casing by lifting it up and out. Now you can install a spool which loaded with pre-wound string or proceed to clean out the inside of the SpeedSpool head.
