Customer service at Home-Depot return was excellent. It seems to be quite powerful and much lighter and quieter than the 32cc brute gas Craftsman I had, which lasted 20 years. The battery charges very quickly. I have another brand of battery tool, and a small battery can take over an hour to charge. I didn't time this one, but it charged very quickly.

And even with the battery weight, it's still lighter than my gas trimmers. ...best of all: my wife isn't afraid to use it! Battery life is NOWHERE near the claimed 33 hours - but two batteries does the whole large yard.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the purchase This battery powered tool has more power then a gas trimmer. Not noisy, no smelly gas odor and its so light i can do the jobs with one hand. Easy to reload the trimmer line with the tool thats included and a spare head with blades that cuts like a knife. I can trim my lawn with no worries of the engine noise and ears ringing from the engine noise. I can attach the ryobi attachment leaf blower with ease and quickly release it with no hassle. I can store it in my cars trunk because it doesnt release the smell of gas at all. No more buying gas and mixtures for me, i think when my son made the choice in the store as a fathers day gift was worth the purchase. I recommend it if you dont like the hassle of making the gas

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful Unit I was looking at a gas trimmer to replace my older yard-works cordless trimmer. Wanted more power. I got looking at these 40V units and read the reviews. I have had it 3 weeks now. Why would any homeowner buy gas? This thing rocks. It has plenty of power. I used it in high first time. Mistake: had to get the hose out and wash the grass of the siding. It was up to the soffits. The battery may be an issue for a commercial user, but not for a homeowner. I have trimmed my yard 3 times and attached the TrimmerPlus Tiller (purchased separate) and tilled my front flower beds,and I still have 2 of 4 bars on the first battery charge. I could not believe how well the tiller worked.

Lots of power, especially on high, using the included two serrated plastic blades to blast through black berry canes, tall grass, wild roses and weeds. Problem with the shaft coupling, even with a strong twist to the knob the bottom shaft can rotate, the button doesn't stick out proud enough. Ryobi will need to work on the charger, IIRC lithium batteries last longest if charged to 80% and discharged to 20%.

1. What are the differences between this trimmer (40290) and the 40270 trimmer and is the difference in performance enough to justify the $30 price difference? 2. Are the bump head trimmer attachments the same between the two models? 3. Can the power head on either model be used with the brush cutter and pole pruner saw attachments?
Asked by: HuskyinWA
Looks to me like the only difference is that the 40290 has a carbon fiber shaft while the 40270 does not. 11.0 lbs. vs 11.7 lbs. Why they advertise the 40290 as "HP" is perplexing. I would assume that either one accepts the HP battery, but perhaps not... My understanding (from Ryobi answers) is that this (40290) doesn't even come with the HP battery, so to me it sounds like marketing bs. The current pricing is $50 difference between the two, so I guess that is for .7 lbs. lighter weight...(?)

What is the actual assembled weight of this product? The specs say it weighs 91.57 lbs. which is obviously a typo.

Asked by: Jackster
Definitely less than 15lbs. Not a heavy unit. The battery is the heaviest component.

The Ryobi string trimmer is excellent. I used it to trim my whole yard, around my fence line and around my 9 vegetable and flower gardens with plenty of power to spare. It’s easy to operate and it handles really good.

I already have a 40V Ryobi pole saw. Will it accept a trimmer attachment without needing to buy a whole new tool?
Asked by: Becky
Becky, thank you for your interest in the RYOBI 40V HP Brushless 15 in. Cordless Carbon Fiber Shaft Attachment Capable String Trimmer with 4.0 Ah Battery and Charger. Without knowing if your pole saw is an attachment capable product it would be hard to say. If the pole saw came with an attachment capable power head then yes. If it is just the extendable pole saw then no.
