Answer: 
Yes it is 1 inch. Don't know if they are compatible. With different vendors they like to be proprietary about their products. Recommend take an attachment with you and go in to the store and check it out.

Answer: 
Correct - about an inch (didn't measure). I tried the original attachments and had a connection issue, but they were not "Expand - IT" attachments. So I went and bought the official compatible attachments and have the same issue. It seems the power head connection is millimeters too shallow or the tool ends are millimeters too long.

Answer: 
It is a square shaft a little smaller than 1/4 inch square. It fits into the compatible drive shaft of the power head. The internal shaft of the attachment was the correct size, but was too long. I had to cut it off and smooth the edges to make it fit.

Yes, this power head is compatible with your attachment. The Expand-It design is compatible with many other name brands of power equipment, including Poulan.

Answer: 
It worked great and had plenty of power to till the sections of my yard which were in need of reseeding. On/off switch is complete garbage and the power head quit working after 1 month. I'll be returning and hoping the next one lasts a little longer and has a little better power switch. Still, when it worked there was plenty of power so I was pleased.

Answer: 
Any universal attachment should fit. This includes most "homeowner" brands.
RyobiTOOLS: Not all 8 Expand-it attachments are recommended for the electric power head despite the fact that they will fit. The brushcutter and (I believe) the hedger trimmer are not recommended and may damage the motor.

Rated 3.7 out of 5 by 160 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Replacement electric string trimmer power head Nice replacement power-head for my YardMan electric string trimmer. The internal shaft seemed a bit longer than what I was replacing but I pushed it together anyhow and it seems to work fine with no issues due to that. Good amount of power for electric unit. Slightly disappointed with the cord retainer - basically non-functional. A very large carabiner clip works to hold onto my extension cord. (I have since made up a short coated cable with crimped on loops at each end and a small carabiner clip to do the same thing.) Excellent value if you need a quick fix for a failing powerhead [gas or electric] EZ Lock style trimmer. Thank you for having this item in stock - saved me from having to buy an entire new unit! June 29, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Garden Tool A bit heavy but powerful. I went through a couple of weed wackers before settling on this model. July 5, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good replacement but not identical The replacement power head is single speed, not two speed like the original. Safety trigger is a bit awkward and probably unnecessary. The single faster speed is a bit much in my opinion. I always kept the old one on the slower speed. Reason for replacement was the plastic housing on the old one cracked and broke apart. We'll see if this one lasts as long (over 10 years). June 28, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great power Needed more power than the battery-powered unit edge trimming and tilling. This does the job! July 12, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by I Prefer This This is my third one. First one lasted many years and had a cool lo/hi speed switch - I wish this new had. Almost too powerful. I prefer this over the gas trimmers. This one works everytime. Cords are bothersome, but preferable. I only wish this item was still available in store/in stock. July 13, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by switch design needs improvement Bought the item in late fall 2013, as a replacement for a gas model that finally quit. Don't use frequently, as don't trim things all of the time. Last fall, couldn't get it to work. Depressed the safety switch, but the trigger switch wasn't working. Hung it up and figured I'd work on it this spring. Had the same thing happening this spring. As a "fun" experience, I took the thing apart with my son. We discovered that the safety switch has a very tight clearance to allow the trigger switch to activate. So, it matters where you grab/pull/push the trigger switch. You need to grab the switch down near the trimmer end of the tool, and almost "push" toward the trimmer end . If you grab the trigger switch toward the back (the corded end), it doesn't work. So, glad I/we figured it out, and I don't have to buy a new one, but could be improved. June 4, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Power head So much quieter than my gas power head and seems just as powerful. Uses all the same attachments with no smelly exhaust fumes and no gas to store. Only draw back is dragging around the extension cord but definitely worth it. June 28, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Need an Iron Grip Very difficult to engage safety lever and trigger. Took apart to remove safety lever only to discover on/off trigger was the culprit. Pooly designed. Had to modify on/off switch. Still need some more attention but will wait until season is over. If you do no have an extremely firm grip do not purchase this item. June 11, 2016
