Customer Questions & Answers

Can you buy just the power head. Engine will not start

Asked by: Dave
Thank you for asking, Dave. Please feel free to check with Home Depot to see which power heads we have available. If you are searching for a 2-cycle engine power head, please check out model number RY251PH. This power head will accept not only the string trimmer attachment here, but any Ryobi Expand-It attachment. I hope this helps and we appreciate your interest in Ryobi! -Keri

String is Stuck in bumper knob . How do I get bumper knob off.

I have looked at manual and it does not say how to remove bumper knob. I have tried everything I know to do for the last two weeks
Asked by: add08
normally you can just unscrew(counter-clockwise) the bumper knob,,,if it's too tight,you may have to use a large pair of pliers...

Customer Reviews

2-Cycle 26cc Gas Curved Shaft Trimmer is rated 2.6 out of 5 by 74.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Trimmer I have the older model CS30 which is the same as the newer ones. I have had it for 3-4 years now and at $99 it is probably the best trimmer you can get. It has the power of a Stihl and performs the same as the day I bought it. I had my first issues (cracked/broken fuel line) and bump cap replacement and it cost me a $18 and a 30 minutes of my time to fix it.. Don't let the negative reviews deter you. I have never had and issue with starting mine. Prime the recommended number of times and it will start on the first 3 pulls. I also have always mixed my own fuel. After reading some recommendations I am going to start using pre-mixed fuel with no ethanol. Like I said, for the money I think the Ryobi trimmer and blower have been worth the money. The blower has more power than some of the high end models I have seen and is lighter. It is same age as the trimmer and never had a problem with it except for needing to replace leaking fuel cap.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from DO NOT purchase this trimmer! I had this trimmer for 6 weeks. It ran out of line and when I went to change it the bolt you have to remove in order to change the line was stripped. To make matters worse when I tried to return it I was told that Home Depot only warranties this junk for 30 days. So I had to purchase another curved shaft which cost $35... Lesson learned, next time I will go with Echo or Stihl.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from NEVER AGAIN! Anyone want to buy the last two I bought? Good for 1 maybe 2 seasons. Good strong product the first year, but the carburetors (like all Ryobi gas products) are JUNK. Always used fresh gas, drained gas and ran dry, end of each season. My friend had the same issues with his. Spend a bit more, buy something with good reviews. What ever you do, DON"T BUY RYOBI GAS ANYTHING!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Wont last Worked great for 5 years then will not run. Costly repairs

Rated 2 out of 5 by from not same old Ryobi My 1st Ryobi lasted 15 years and worked great. Bought another based on that experience, but from the start was super hard to get started. Thought i should return it right away but didn't. Now i cant get the thing to start or run, and am mechanically inclined so know how to trouble shoot. Frustrating! Guess its time for a Stihl

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Lemon-ish My Ryobi ran sufficiently for 5 uses, and by this point it had been roughly 90 days. It began having engine problems, the engine slowly losing strength, over the next year. I've used fresh gasoline with the appropriate oil mixture; this isn't my first rodeo. Ultimately last week, almost a year to the day after I'd purchased it, it couldn't even maintain its own idle (much less spin the head), and every pull brings roughly a second or two of sputtering. There appears to be oil coming out of the air intake, which can't help things. This trimmer gave maybe 25 uses, and many of them were slower and more painful than necessary. I cannot recommend.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Impossible to start First season, difficult to start; second season, impossible to start. Once it is going, it runs well but just too difficult to start.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Faulty Trimmer Based on my experience I would not recommend this trimmer. It started fine right out of the box and had plenty of power. The problem started with the line not feeding properly. On further examination the lower, curved portion of the shaft became extremely hot. This carried down into the spool assembly, that caused the feeding problem. Not sure why this happened unless there is a restriction in the shaft housing. My son has this same trimmer and it works fine doing the same work. On a side note his is and older trimmer. Seems like Ryobi may have made some changes that have cheapened the quality of the product.
