Customer Reviews

Rated 2.3 out of 5 by 123 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Wouldn't Buy Again Been using this 3 years now, and would not purchase again. Hard to start, although I can get past that as it always starting following the procedure. However, it constantly stalls if the trigger isn't pressed, leaks fuel, and worse off the trimmer line is a pain to load and constantly needs tweaking. April 25, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Horrible Weedeater This thing is GARBAGE! Lasted not even a year. Replaced everything but the carb and the thing called a weedeater will still not run. I hate this thing. I will never buy a Ryobi again. In fact you couldn't give me one. April 2, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Versatile trimmer that is easy to start and use Contrary to some reviews, I found this trimmer to be very easy to start following the instructions step by step that are displayed on the side of the engine (see photo). I was able to start this in 2 pulls. It runs great and is very easy to use with the trigger grip that activates the trim head. You can choose to use the fixed line string head or bump feed string head that are both included. It cuts a nice wide path so is great for all of my landscaping trimming. The engine noise and vibration are well within the normal range for this type of trimmer. Having the option to add attachments makes this trimmer even better. Definitely recommend this.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great Trimmer for the average homeowner! This trimmer is a great trimmer for the average homeowner. It is packaged perfectly in a very friendly package & assembly couldn't be any easier. The trimmer started immediately with no effort. It has worked above my expectations since I have owned it. I hope the quality and workmanship will continue through the life of the product. The product is not built for a professional landscaper type use, but for the amount of trimming that I do, I am very pleased! September 1, 2013
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Not a bad weed wacker for the money Honestly looking at all the other bad reviews I thought I would add my two cents in. I purchased the $99 special because the battery operated one was just not getting it done. Out of the box it ran fine, still runs fine, like with any other gas two cycle you have to warm it up but once it's warm it runs great. The first job I tackled was edging with alot of sod creep, done in 30 minutes. The battery trimmer I had went 5 feet on the same and crapped out! The only issue I have had was with the auto feed on the head, not the best but once you figure it out you just need to keep an eye on the line length. It's a $99 trimmer, what do you expect!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Lasted 2 Summers Purchased in June in june 2013 and having problems with it. Im not sure but needs new carburator. replaced gas lines and blew out carb. to no avail. not sure if im gonna buy new carb or just buy a different brand. SLC,Utah June 19, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by People can't read instructions I have had my Ryobi weed eater for almost 10 yrs. The only thing I have done to it is replace the spark plug, and plastic gas feed tubes. Yes, it is not fun to start as it will not start the first time, nor the 6th time, however, if you set it on the lowest start position, push choke 3 times, then follow thru with that one complete sequence, then after starting all over again, doing the same thing, it will start on the second position. This of course means that you will have to pull the cord no less than 5 times and push the plastic choke about 12 times. Other than that, it works great. Good exercise at least in the arm you try to start it with. September 28, 2010
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 2 years I am on my second summer using this trimmer without any breakdowns. I actually visited the site on my phone at Home Depot to see what gauge line I needed and was surprised to see so many negative reviews. May 25, 2015
