Ryobi strimmer cord
« on: June 04, 2009, 13:06 »
Just come back from my local tool repair shop who have stopped 'taking in that ryobi rubbish'

How easy is changing the pull cord? bearing in mind I am not a technical wizz by any stretch of the imagination! and any tips.

Thanks a lot

If its like most pull cord starter's you will need to take apart thread a new cord through the hole in the body of the strimmer and there will be a hole in the recoil pass the cord through and knot the end.

Then pull some cord through so you can unwind  the recoil so that when you let it go the cord goes onto the recoil.   

I know how to do it but explaining it is something else.  Gwiz might be along soon to explain better.
Thanks
Kris

A quick question,
having read the instructions above i just want to check that they are relevant to my strimmer as I had stupidly not told you the model number in my first post.
It is a PBC 3046YB 30cc
Thanks very much
