I use the string trimmer & hedge trimmer attachment and get through my .25 acre yard with at least 75% power left. I am very happy. My only gripe is that the weight balance is poor. It's expected, as the battery is a monster. My shoulder/back/forearms get sore.

I was a little skeptical about this unit, but after reading the reviews, decided to go with the 2 speed brushless unit. I manage a property and have various needs such as chain saw, brush cutter,, hedge trimmer, blower and grass trimmer. I have a number of Ryobi and other brand attachments, that work with attachment capable trimmers, so I thought this unit would be a good choice. I am a fan of Ryobi tools generally, and have several Ryobi battery powered hand tools and two Ryobi gas powered trimmer heads. My first impression of this unit was not good - the safety lock and trigger levers are cheaply made and seem like they will break easily. However, I have now used this tool with all the attachments mentioned above and it got the job done and works well. It has a lot of power and may even be equivalent to a gas powered unit without the noise and fuel issues. The brush cutter attachment took the most battery use, the hedge trimmer seemed to strain the unit, but it actually worked well. I used it about 1/2 hour with some heavy use, and had a little battery life left on it. I did not check how long it took to recharge the battery. I think this is a good unit for a homeowner, especially having a second battery charged and waiting. I don't know if this would work well for a commercial landscaping company though. Based on other reviews, it takes a long time to charge the batteries. I did not use the existing bump head trimmer attachment. I prefer the Rhino Tuff PivoTrim and Push n Load blade cutter type cutter heads.

Is this compatible with expand it series?  Can you use 5 amp 40v battery in this unit, if you have mower?

Asked by: JayW
Hi JayW, You can use a 5 amp 40v battery on 40-Volt Lithium-Ion Brushless Cordless Electric String Trimmer Kit with 3.0 Ah Battery. It will run longer.

How do you get service for this unit? I have either a dead battery or a dead charger. Charge the battery for 12 hrs and still seems to be empty.

Asked by: Rob in Sask
Hi Rob, The most effective way to see which one is not working would be to use a different charger or battery. If you don't have one, you can visit one of our service centre or call us at 1800-860-4050 (see below). https://www.ryobitools.com/support/service-centers
