Where to Buy a Featherlite FL20 or FL25

Is there an outlet near Boulder Co where I can get one of the above trimmers. Sears no longer carries them. Or decond best, can I order one online. Thanks.


Hi Michael,

Best bet is amazon:  I found a Fl25c below:




W25SFK Tap-n-Go

I have a W25SFK with a fixed line, I want to change it to a tap-n-go head.  What is the correct tap-n-go model and part number for my W25SFK.

Thank you




Hi Paul,

Tap-n-go (R) is not available for your model, only fixed head.


Alternatives to Trimmer Line

Is there an alternate head for use on Weedeater featherlite FX26SCE other than the autofeed line head. I am interested in a head that is flat so as can be dragged on the ground for an even cut. My neighbor has another brand that has a head as described above. I have trouble with trimmer line breaking repeatedly. If there are other head types, even generic please advise.

Thanks Wayne

Hi Wayne,

There are a number of different options on the market:

Grass Gator

Weed Warrior

Grass Gator and Weed Warrior provide both plastic and metal blade options.

Fl25C Part

hi my name is Christopher I am asking you guys pertaining to a certain part of my weedeater 25c. What that part called that’s located near the spool with the silver clips that holds the spool in. I need another part because the silver clips are bend and are no longer holding the spool down. thank you for your help.

Hi Christopher,

The part you are referring to is part of an assembly of 5 items:

  1. Hub
  2. Spring
  3. Clip Retainer
  4. Plug-cylinder Screw
  5. Spool (with Line)

From your description you are referring to the clip retainer.  However I would replace the whole assembly as more than one part may be damaged and it could be cheaper in the long run.

You can either buy these items separately or buy them as a complete assembly.  Please find these parts lists below:

Carburetor Adj Tool

Can you tell me where I can get a adjusting tool for the carborator on my featherlite. It seems you have to be a distributor or a sales agent. All I need to do is adjust the carborator.

FL1500i Disintegrated Fuel Lines

My model blower has two fuel lines, vs the single fuel lines that I see in the parts catalogues.  1) both fuel lines have disintegrated inside the fuel tank leaving what I think is the fuel pick up and a coupler.

I need to understand the arrangement for the fuel lines.  Any help would be appreciated.



Hi Robin,

This is a common issue with most trimmers.  Please find a link below for a video how to guide on how to replace the fuel lines and filter.

FX26SCE Primer Bulb Replacement

I own a Weedeater Featherlite FX26SCE and I need to purchase the primer bulb and the only way I can get it is by purchasing a carburetor. Surly, you supply the primer bulb and shaft the bulb is mounted on without having to purchase the carburetor.  Let me know where I can purchase the primer bulb and shaft.  I have only used the weedeater one Summer season and now the plastic bulb is cracked. Everything else is find on the weedeater. I will not be purchasing another Weedeater product if I have to buy a carburetor to replace a $2.00 primer bulb.



Hi Ernie,

Weedeaterfeatherlite.com is not the official website for the weedeater brand.  It is an informational based website created by me  (a novice) to give as much information on the weedeater featherlite products to help you.  I agree that the serviceability of the primer bulb on the FX26SCE has been missed, and unfortunately when it has perished, the only way to fix the issue is to replace the carburetor.  Good Luck.

Where can I Purchase Weedeater Products

Where in Florida can you purchase Weedeater string trimmer products.  I want a featherlite, straight/long shaft 25 cc model.  Checked Home depot on line and they are not shown.  I have this model in Canada and want the same thing to use in the Bahamas.



Hi Frank,

Have you tried searching online amazon?  I have found a Straight shaft featherlite 25cc Gas Trimmer below:

FL25C Trimmer Head Smoking and Not Rotating

We have a FL25C trimmer that we bought Fall 2013 and used maybe twice. We were using it on 3/10/13 and the line attachment melted at the base of the shaft. I have photos I can send via email if you like. We have bought these trimmers over the past several years with no problem other than just wearing them out. I called customer service and they suggested I take it to a service center, but they could not find one in Asheboro, NC 27205 the closest was in Archdale, which is 20+ miles away and she felt this was strange that there were none closer. Can you offer more help for a solution?

Hello Wendy,

Weedeaterfeatherlite.com is not the official website of the weedeater brand. We are an information only website.

I have come across this problem before. The issue is the rotating cutter head is no longer rotating, although the inner mechanical drive shaft is. This causes much friction causing the head to melt.

If you or a friend is mechanically minded then follow our how to guide on how to fix the problem (link below).

How To fix a non-Rotating Trimmer Head

If you cannot fix it yourself then unfortunately it would be cheaper to replace the whole trimmer. Or if you have warranty with the place of purchase then I would recommend returning it.

Hope this helps.
