Questions & Answers for Murray Murray 17" 25cc 2-Cycle Curved Shaft Gas String Trimmer

Question

Murray M2500 Bump knob won't come off

I purchased my Murray M2500 curved shaft gas trimmer about 6-8 weeks ago. Went to add new trimming line but the bump knob won't come off. I can't get to the inner reel to add line. The bump knob turns (counterclockwise)but can't be removed. Is the shaft turning with the bump knob? How can I get it off?

Gmanrocksteady: my question was asked 3 weeks, 4 days ago. If I had waited for an answer, with all the rain we have had, my grass would have been up to my ears.
Wal-mart wouldn’t replace it since it was a seasonal item and had only a 30 day replacement guarantee.
I figured, “what the heck, it works or breaks” it wasn’t doing me any good without line anyway.
I tried your solution before I asked the question, and it did not work. I removed the lower part of the weed eater shaft by loosing the clamp in the middle of the shaft, depressing the lock button and pulling down. I got help, and we inserted a screw driver into the slot where the lower cable connects with the upper cable, (make sure the screw driver is large enough to fit flush in the cable slot so there is no slippage, you don't want to damage the linking slot) one held onto the screw driver while the other turned the bump knob counter clock wise. After a lot of muscle was applied, the bump knob finally gave and screwed off. I replaced the shaft, put trimmer line on and it works perfect. The bump knob had got too tight for some reason to remove. I really like this weed eater, it's light and with the curved handle I can maneuver it any way I need to do the job.

answer 2
use a flat head screwdriver and stick it in between the knob and the casing, this will put pressure on the bolt inside if it is stripped, then turn counter clockwise. It should come loose.

the only thing that "floats in the tank" is the fuel filter attached to the end of the fuel line..nothing else should be in there other than fuel

Shipping weight above on this unit the M2500 states 13 lbs. This should be close since fuel weight would counter any packaging weight which is not substantial. The next unit up the M2510 is 14.1 lbs.

Yes
You can reload the inner reel with .08 diameter line. You will want to buy a spool not the individual pre-cut strips.

This item 550098630 is an example of smaller spool line sold in most stores and here on-line

answer 2
First time can be tricky but should get easier. You need two equal lengths of trimmer line. You could use finger tip to finger tip cross chest for each line length.
FIRST-Remove bumb knob from trimmer head to get to inner reel....
...Place the two equal length of lines side by side and start wrapping around center of inner reel...Wrap until there is just enough line to run through the two trimmer head eyelets...One string goes through one side of the head and other string goes into opposite side....Re attach bump knob.
Complete head with line Part# 791-153577B can also be ordered from the 1-888-232-6710 parts warehouse.
