    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointing - Expect to buy a new one every year I bought this trimmer last season (along with the mower and blower). The metal ring, where the sting comes out of, broke a few months later. I spoke with the local Ryobi repair shop and they said it wouldn't be covered under warranty and even if it was, it would be at least a 3 month wait. Of course since I bought the whole system, i'm stuck needing this trimmer. This trimmer has been out of stock for months and like other reviews, I don't need the one that comes with another battery. At least the mower and blower are still working fine in year 2 but if you're willing to take the risk on this trimmer, just be prepared to buy a new one every year.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from How long is an acceptable wait? Firstly, I have numerous ryobi products and mostly love them. Unfortunately, my original 40 string trimmer has broken (smoke coming from the head). I can't seem to fix it so wanted to buy a new tool. I have lots of batteries that have come with my other products so I do not want to buy the one with the battery for an additional $150. I wanted to get this one but I keep checking the website and it always says it's unavailable. How long should I wait before getting so irritated I'll buy another system (eGo) since I have to buy another battery anyways.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible I’ll start out by saying that i really love the Ryobi 40v system. Have the chain saw, lawn mower and blower. Love them. Bought the string trimmer this spring and disappointed to find its junk. Your supposed to step on a small lever to turn the head to trim. This is a poor system. Super awkward. Most times I end up struggling with it and have to pick it up and wrestle it to to get it to twist. Also major issues with the auto string feed. Either it doesn’t auto feed or it feeds to quickly. Either way it was so bad I took 45 minutes to do a job that took 15 with my old trimmer. Given how happy I am with the rest of my Ryobi 40v tools I assumed I had a defective unit. Exchanged it for a new one and same issues. Also problem with the handle (won’t tighten properly and constantly shifts and rotates) the string (different larger size recommended on box and manual doesn’t be fit when I purchased only to find doesn’t work). I’m taking the second one back today. Super disappointed

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy peasy I happily gave away a good, expensive gas trimmer to avoid the pull cord, the fuel, the fumes, the vibration (!) etc. This trimmer dispatched a big patch of stubborn, mature weeds easily. I already loved my Ryobi mower, so getting this was a no-brainer. I'll never bump again.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good value. Overall, it works well, however there are a couple of changes that would make it outstanding. The string trimmer is a little heavy for my wife due to the inability to change the balance point to lighten up the trimmer head. Also the string advance is very slow at 1/4" advance with each adjustment button activation. To do the adjustment manually, the instructions say to press the " black" button and pull the string out, problem being the " button" on our trimmer is white, and this could cause confusion. It would be better to say "press the side button on the string head" as there is only one button. Other than those two areas that could be improved, the trimmer works well and the 40V - 5amp battery is excellent.

    Is this different from RYOBI 40-Volt Lithium-Ion Cordless String Trimmer/Edger with 2.6 Ah Battery and Charger Model # RY40210B ..? I thought it was almost the same but this one is juswithout the battery, but the one above has good review unlike this one.

    Asked by: ricky1
    Hi Ricky, There are the same. Only difference is one comes with a charger and a 40v battery.
