Hi, I'm Matthew Christian from Tampa, Florida and on behalf of Expert Village, today I'd like to talk to you about proper use and maintenance of a yard weed eater. As you use your weed eater, this line is going to get worn down and shorter. Now remember earlier we respooled it. You got a lot of extra line in there, so how do you get it out. Well, here's how. While the machine is spinning, we're gonna tap it gently on a hard surface. This could be accomplished on your yard, but, again, as I mentioned, you don't, we're gonna have to have this thing spinning, you don't want to do it on the grass and wipe out an area of the grass, make it too short. Pick a dead spot. So we're do spinning and then tap it on the ground so more line comes out. So the line comes out and it's spinning also, there's a cutting blade, that when the line gets a certain length, this will cut the line. As you can see, I took up quite a bit more line, and I'm ready to do more edging. And as I use it, it wears down, I just follow the same steps to release more line.
