Was another website,I can't find it at mina nd dinner time.

It will be different but should still fit... that link I posted was a B&D 3 pack with free delivery at less than twice as much as the argos one. Couldn't see a length on the argos one to do a proper comparison though...

The Argos one is probably 10meters also,I'll go with the site you said for 3 for a tenner or so,and free delivery,thanks.

Yeh I had a look but don't think they have any on there,I want to be certain I'm buying right thing.

Black & Decker GLC2500

Since we not got the bunny,well the grass is shooting up at the sides,he must fairly ate a lot of grass,and if I don't get it sorted it's going get out of hand and I plan doing it next week before it gets too wild.I always do the garden so need to do it before it gets really bad,my partner never does it,however I've told him he need get on the sloping bank to weed as I can't chance going up on bank now pregnant,it's too slippery.

I've not ordered yet at screwfix but it's likely be there as touch cheaper than Argos now.

The argos one should fit fine - the difference is that the argos one fits strimmers from other manufacturers as well, so its design will incorporate that... sorry for not realising screwfix seperated packing costs from delivery costs.

I think the spool is fine,but I thought it might be just easier if it's bought in a spool as then I just need clip it on,don't know really,I'm useless with diy and such items. This 1st time it's needed replacing too,hence I don't know much. My partner don't seem to know much either,earlier he said Argos not even sell them,then I find they on there!

you just wrap it around the spool like winding cotton back on a reel when dropped

A6481

it says its the above and will fit a GLC2500,what I don't understand is the likes of Amazon who have this don't say it fits it,and this website doesn't mention it fits it either.

Ok thanks,I'll buy on eBay now,it be here mid week and hopefully not raining and will make a start that day.
Hope lawnmower is working after getting strimmer sorted,know how it can be 1 thing after next.

Sassie's ebay one does have the same part number so if that's cheapest then go for it

Sounds like you just need the line.You need only to pay less than £2 inc p&p on ebay or try wilkinsons/poundshop etc.
It is just a case of winding it on the spool and feeding it through the the holes on the spool.Its a bit of a waste of time to replace the whole thing.

he can actualy re thread the spool in doors ya know, sorry only teasing with ya, although he really can ;-)

hey i ordered a spool cover and spool and line.

its not hard you just wind the wire round the black spool and insert and cover and off ya go.

i get hayfever too. its just an excuse though. you can buy them masks from bandq or most hardware stores, theyre well cheap and they keep away hayfever. thats what i do. and wear goggles for the eyes.

make sure the windows are shut in the house and doors closed while you cut.

after its done, spray lawn with water. or first collect the grass and dispose of it. if youre not gonna do this, spray it with water. this should reduce the pollen flying around. then you can open the windows.

its also a good idea to get an air purifier for the summer. they can be expensive but an amazing investment. thats what im gonna do.

btw - black and decker spool lones usually fit two or three different model numbers. so if yours says fits (your part number) and also another part number, its perfectly fine.

i bought mine from ebay, although b&q didnt have my part, other b&q and B7d parts were expensive
