Rated 1 out of 5 by from Motor keeps burning out This is my third purchase of this particular product. Every single one the motor burns out. I like Ryobi products and I have bought a snowblower to everything in between. However, I don't understand why these trimmer and edgers are burning out on my. First one last a bit longer, second one not so much and the third one burnt out on it's second run. Started to smoke and heat up and eventually stopped working altogether just like the other two. All three did the same thing so I am wondering if the motor is defective. It is very frustrating when you are trying to get the job done and ryobi has failed me all three times.

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 1 out of 5 by from Weak construction and lousy customer service I was impressed with this trimmer when it was new. Plenty of power and a long battery life. However, the deck is attached to a very weak plastic motor housing that broke around the screws. "No problem," I thought. "I'll just call customer service and have them mail me a new housing. I'll screw it together myself. Easy-peasy." Except that the nice lady at customer service wants me to drive to a service centre, drop offthe trimmer, wait for it to be repaired and then pick it up. Not gonna happen! Step into the 21st century, Ryobi. If a customer presents you with a cheap, effective solution, embrace it! My first and last Ryobi product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Pleased so far Took it for it's maiden voyage today. Very impressed so far. I have a 1/3 acre in a rural area and admittedly the weeds around the edges of the property were gargantuan! So it was a good hard test for the unit...we're taking monster dandelion stocks several feet high in some places! I was able to do the entire property on one charge with power to spare. And there was always plenty of power to chop even the weeds that were becoming small trees! Nit picky stuff: I find the whole foot pedal switch to edging thing very finicky and i wish the string spool would last a little longer but I did find the string line quite easy and fast to replace.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great product I have too many toys that have gas engines. That is why I went electric. I have 7 acres and that means a lot of edges. My first task was to clear our a 150 foot ditch out front. I have had this trimmer for a month now and I have used it on, what I consider, heavy weeds and grass. The battery does last 30 - 90 minutes depending on usage. It charges within 1.5 - 2 hours. The string is only 9 ft long so it can run out fast. You may want a backup spool even if you rewind your own. I now own two Ryobi products (the other a pressure washer) and I am very happy with the quality of engineering in these two products. I am impressed with the 3 year warranty and you can buy an extra year through Home Depot for $15. The plastic feels a little flimsy, but it has held up so far. The biggest issue is battery replacement costs. $129. But the batteries should last if you take care of them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the the top tools I own. Bought this trimmer last year and has become one of my favorite tools in the garage next to the blower. I had a gas homelite trimmer which was a pain to get started and decided to go electric. Went with this model as I also wanted an edger and this guy does an incredible job at edging, super easy to use and the lines are crisp and straight going along my sidewalk and landscaping in my backyard. Battery holds up great, i've never been able to fully discharge it. For the battery the only maintenance I need to use s in the winter I bring it down to 70% charge and store in the crawlspace indoors at room temperature to keep it the battery in optimal condition.

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 1 out of 5 by from burn out trimmer Brought this uint back in june 2012 didnt really use it till 2013 and the motor burn out in mid july still on its original spool of string! Took it to a Home Depot recommended repair shop, that doesnt handle Ryobi gardening tools and they sent me to another shop, which is pretty far. The first thing they did was charge me $25.00 for diagnostics told them it was a burn motor but still had to pay it. The unit was sitting at their shop unit Nov before I got it back, guess I could get it ready for snow now, during this time I've been calling them and they kept telling me that its waiting for parts. This is my 2nd Ryobi trimmer first one had the same problem but it was a lower voltage unit, figure a 40V would be much better, Guess not! I would definitely not recomend this to anyone or any of the Ryobi warranties!

Is this trimmer able to take different blade attachments, or is the spool feed permanently attached? I know it has the system for making it a hedge trimmer, saw, etc. I'm referring to using brush blades, plastic bladed cutters, etc.

Asked by: Dan B
Hi Dan B, Yes this 40V Lithium-Ion Cordless String Trimmer/Edger with 2.6Ah Battery and Charger can adapt to different heads like our "Tri-Arc" blade for heavy duty bush trimming. We hope 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.
