How do you bump feed a Stihl trimmer?

Position the trimmer head just above the ground. Press the trigger throttle to start the trimmer head turning. Continue to hold the trigger throttle down and lower the trimmer head to bump the tap button on the bottom of the trimmer head on the ground. Allow the line to feed from the trimmer head.

When you press the head of your trimmer against a flat surface, it squeezes a spring in the head of the string trimmer. This action releases string from the spool so you have a line with which you can cut down debris. The bump feed electric trimmer uses centrifugal force to pull the string from the spool.

Similarly, how do I extend the line on my Stihl trimmer? Hold the trimmer head above the ground, press the trigger throttle and allow new line to automatically feed from the spool. Continue to hold the trigger throttle down until the line extends to the point where the blade on the trimmer guard trims it to length. Continue cutting grass and weeds.
