Your trimmer uses .065 inch (1.65 mm) diameter, ROUND nylon line. During use, the
tips of the nylon lines will become frayed and worn and the special self feeding spool will
automatically feed and trim a fresh length of line. DO NOT BUMP on ground in attempt to feed
line or for any other purposes.
Cutting line will wear faster and require more feeding if the cutting or edging is done along
sidewalks or other abrasive surfaces or heavier weeds are being cut.
CAUTION: Before you begin trimming, only use the appropriate type of cutting line.
Use Black & Decker replacement spool Model No. AF-100, and replacement cap RC-100.
Reload nylon line (either bulk or prewound replacement spool) as shown in this manual.
Do not use serrated or heavier gauge line, as they will overload the motor and cause
overheating, and will not feed properly. This line is available at your local dealer or
authorized service center.
