Rated 2 out of 5 by from Its 'ok' I purchased this a few weeks back. It's a well built power tool. It's strong and I believe it's commercial grade. Its also very powerful- it will eat anything in its way, no joke! There are downsides to this tool though. For everyday use in lawn, you don't need this type of power. There are downsides to this machine. The big 25.4cc motor makes this thing heavy to lug around. Unless you're using a strap, you will need frequent breaks. (I'm 6ft, 200 lbs) The head with the lines will break if it touches anything other than grass. I'm only human, resulting in the line breaking often. I returned the product for one with a smaller engine made by Hitachi. After using the latter device, I can say I'm much more satisfied!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best I have ever used I've had many electric and gas trimmers over the years and this Toro surpasses them all. Powerful, easy to start, convenient tap and go line and very easy to reload 25 feet of line in the spool in minutes. What a great gas trimmer, even cuts down overgrown weeds. I highly recommend it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Most difficult to start engine on the Planet! This my 2nd purchase and its going to the town dump this weekend after only 2 years use. (I offered it free to a small engine repair guy and he just laughed). The first one I had did a little better at 4 years. Toro used to make solid professional grade stuff now they are bottom feeders. Both of these that I owned would take 2-3 hrs of a weekend to start. No engine should be this hard to start, Even when started, you are still in for 15 mins of pain of it stalling until it gets hot enough to sustain combustion. Most frustrating tool I've ever owned, The word TORO just makes me cringe. Watch what the lawn care companies buy: You won't see a TORO anything on their trucks. Time to buy an ECHO and get my weekends and engine starting arm back from this TORO hell. A lessor annoyance but pretty disappointing is the tap'n'go NEVER works - you are manually pulling it apart to get more string to deploy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product Great Residential use product. Parts are easy to get and great price for the quality. I owned one for quite a few years... only problem is the shaft bent a little (someone started it wrong and forced the shaft down, which bent the shaft). Going to get a new one this week... Moved out and had to leave my old on behind

I'm wondering if the Ryobi Expand-it attachments would work with a Toro power head.  I've had it with my Ryobi!  Thanks.

Asked by: jasinke
Yes all Ryobi attachments are compatible with the Toro power head
