    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 40V CORDLESS STRING TRIMMER GREAT TRIMMER! 40 V POWER IS UNBEATABLE. AUTO LINE ADVANCE AND LONG BATTERY LIFE. NOTHING SEEMS TO SLOW IT DOWN.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent machine Works great. 30 minutes to a charge. We use .06 twisted line.
    Date published: 2020-08-26
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from String feed issues As others have mentioned the string feed system seems flawed. It chewed through the first half very quickly, within the first use. I will need to buy different type of string or a different head.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good value for the money. Lots of power. I have a large lot and it does the whole property on a charge. Twine is easy to change. I actually prefer a heavier twine than what came with the trimmer, buy that separately as you need it. It is not commercial grade so be careful how you bang it around as there is plastic in a number of areas. I have two of these and they are great. Way better than the 18V option.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Efficient but a little heavy Works well. A little heavy for prolonged use if one isn’t strong. Works well on our 45x100 ft lot.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from These are great! Get one! One string design rarely tangles. Use this tool for sculpting the landscape.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Trimmer This is a great trimmer. It has enough power to trim grass and heavier weeds. The line is easy to change and the ability to change orientation of the head to allow for vertical trimming is great. The only criticism would be that it goes through a lot of line. It self feeds as you start up.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great trimmer, uses lots of cord Works great, cut everything my gas trimmer can. Uses cord faster though, but much easier to reload.

    What is the difference between this unit and the Ryobi trimmer model # RY40204A?

    Asked by: Gogogo
    Hi Gogogo, The main difference has to do with the head of the RY40204A and the construction. The RY40204A is a great string trimmer but is not built as strong as our other 40V trimmer. The 40V cordless string trimmer above has a rotating head and strong shaft to handle more aggressive applications. Both options will wokr for many uses but the 40V Cordless String Trimmer (RY40201BCAN) will offer enhanced strength and performance. We hope all this information helps. Thanks for reaching out, RYOBI Canada.

    We have a Ryobi lawn mower that uses the 40v batteries. We bought it back in 2015.  Will this trimmer take the same style 40v battery, or have they changed them since then? it is a quite large and heavy battery. 

    Asked by: Tiki323
    I've had several 40V Ryobi string trimmers over the years, and the batteries are all the same.

    Will this product work with 3amp 18v ryobi+ lion batteries?

    Asked by: Trim man
    Hi Trim Man, The 40VCordless String Trimmer will work with other 40V batteries. If you already have RYOBI 18V batteries than you can adapt to other RYOBI 18V String Trimmers that we have in-store and online. Thanks for reaching out!

    Are other Connexion attachments available or has the Connexion system been completely dropped by Ryobi?

    Asked by: ItsALondonFing
    Hey ItsAlondonFing, We have our Expand-It lineup available in-store and online with the Home Depot. This lineup is similar but very improved and offers users many more attachments compared to other similar products on the market. Thanks for reaching out, RYOBI Canada.

    Will this trimmer accept a cultivator attachment? It appears to have a coupler.

    Asked by: Cindi
    Hi Cindi, Unfortunately this trimmer is not subject to EXPAND-IT options. Thanks for reaching out, RYOBI Canada.

    I want to know if I can use my mower battery with this grass trimmer. My Ryobi battery is OP40501 40v, 5 Ah, Battery 130302020DG9. Just wanna make sure before I place my order.

    Asked by: Aris
    Hi I don’t know if Ryobi has different battery models but for my trimmer and mower I absolutely can use the same battery. Maybe call Ryobi directly to be sure. Hope this helps.

    I have a ryobi 40 wat 5 volt battery from my lawn mower would it work in this 40 wat trimmer? Thank you

    Asked by: Danny
    Hey Danny: I have 2 40volt batteries, one 5 Ah, and a 4 Ah. They both work in my lawn mower, trimmer, leaf blower. The 4 Ah does not work in chainsaw.
