Our local Home Depot stopped stocking the 12 inch trimmer spools and now we will have to order them online. I was just wondering if the trimmer can be upgraded to the 15 inch version cause the do stock those spools

Have you tried to wind your own spool? It's really easy and better line is available than the stuff ego sends out.

The answer is the spools are not interchangeable. And cannot be upgraded
The 12" will shut off if it senses too much line is out.

I have done it a couple times when needed but it’s tough with limited movement in one hand and trying to keep it from coming unspooled

Sorry for being insensitive Chris. I guess time to upgrade to the power load trimmer maybe. It's a much nicer trimmer. I never thought of it before but the powerload would be great for someone who has limited movement in one or both hands.
