Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great product. Do not use Eco-Oil that came with. Hello, This trimmer is great. I have the straight shaft attachment and the curved as well as many attachments (trimmer, tiller) I bought this, and it came with two premeasured Oil bottles of this Oil that is "biodegradable" and "non toxic". It was very thin. Do not use this oil. I returned one after the engine seized. I could still pull the cord but had to work on it a bit. I think this Oil is too thin and doesn't provide enough protection. Oil was spitting out the exhaust! The next one I filled it once with that Oil and the same thing happened. I changed the Oil to regular 10x30 high end oil and it is great! Great product. Not good Oil! August 12, 2009
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by I wish I bought one of these a few years ago. Used it one season until an intake valve bent (how the heck does that happen? - it has a governor to limit speed!). Had to pay for repair of course. Also replaced fuel lines that hardened and cracked. Of course, now, I can't get it to start even if I dislocate my shoulder and tear the tendons in my elbow trying. Yes, I store it dry and always use fresh fuel. So much for that idea. October 22, 2010
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Powerful, Quiet, Clean Running, Fits All Attachments This 4 stroke weed trimmer offering from Ryobi meets my expectations for an attachment capable piece of lawn equipment. Not having to mix oil and fuel makes for easy refueling at any point during yard work. Use the same fuel canister you use for your lawnmower, snowblower, etc. The starting instructions are simple to follow. Fill the crank case with the included oil and funnel, fill with regular gas, prime the engine, choke per the instructions on the choke lever, and pull the starter handle. This engine starts very similar to the 2 Stroke Ryobi powerhead already own, Only differing in that the choke on the 4 stroke model is not automatic. Using the choke lever is easy to figure out, it's clearly labeled and I like the way it is set up. This engine has a low gurgle to it's idle and throttle up. Quite different from the loud whine of a 2 stroke engine. It's pleasant to hear running and much nicer to have near you when cutting a lot of weeds. Using any of the numerous attachments involves loosening the large attachment knob on the shaft, pushing in the locking pin and removing the current attachment for the new one. Snap the new attachment into place and re-tightening the knob. You're ready to go that fast. They lock in firmly and there is no slippage between the connections. I have almost all of the Ryobi attachments for this tool already and they all work perfectly with this powerhead. There is no lack in power while using any of them. Being a 4 stroke, you have plentiful power on the lower end of the throttle, with lots of torque for hitting heavy brush and weeds. The included curved weed trimmer attachment is built well and works smoothly. I would have liked to see a larger guard on the trimmer head. This small one works, but allows too much debris to go flying. My older attachment has a guard more than twice this size. The product description says that there are two trimmer heads included. Well, not on the one I got. Only one trimmer head came with this machine. So I called Ryobi support as the directions said I should and after 15 minutes waiting on hold a very curt employee interrupted me while I was explaining the issue and told me that a second trimmer head is not included and that's that as far as he's concerned. I was not impressed. If this is how they deal with minor issues, I'm not looking forward to needing to use the warranty on this if I have to. Other than Ryobi's customer service line being less than helpful, the machine itself is a quality item. It starts easily, runs well and has plenty of power to complete any task I gave it. The drawbacks were the second trimmer head not being included in the box per the product description and I would have liked to see a nice shoulder strap included at this price point. I have a large lot, with the house, two outbuildings, numerous gardens and beds. It usually takes a half tank in the 2 stroke model to cut all the weeds. With this 4 stroke model it took less than half that amount of fuel. March 23, 2013
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Works great until it breaks This trimmer worked great for me for (almost) two years, starting on the first pull and running like a champ. That is, until the plastic camshaft melted and stopped the engine in its tracks - permanently. I changed the oil and adjusted the valves according to the maintenance schedule, but the cheap construction of the device meant it was only a matter of time. If they are too cheap to put an air filter on it, you know it isn't built to last; I replaced it with a 2-stroke Toro and am much happier now. September 2, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great, gas only, trimmer My father has the same one, so we change and share attachments which is great. I like that it runs on pure gas. So far, I hit up a ton of brush in my backyard with the brush cutter blade. The pure metal cutting blade is much better than 3 plastic with metal edges. I got it on sale and I think it was a solid buy. May 6, 2014
