Check your yellow pages and find a store that sells just mowers and other powered garden tools. Buy your trimmer there, and they'll show you how to deal with the stuff that's not clear in the instruction manual.

What's a "garden trimmer?"

It is slang for water buffalo. She/he must have gotten a gelded one. ("Plastic thing" - also slang)

I will assume your "garden trimmer" is a string trimmer. For all but the most inexpensive ones the entire cutting head that holds the string is replaceable for about 20$ US at a good repair and sales shop. Parts are also available for the lower end ones but you would have to mail order them.

Several very useful, but relatively unkown, garden tools are identified on the World of Weeds website www.ergonica.com. The selection includes several tools that are not found in hardware stores and can only be purchased directly from manufacturers on the web.
You will also find the largest list of weed removal tools, weed pullers and weed twisters anywhere on the web.
_______ EWIRM: If you stand still long enough, weeds will grow between your toes.
