How many quarts of oil does it hold?

Asked by: akorn97
It holds less than 1 qt. of oil. I would guess it holds about 1/8 of a qt.

How well with this run at an angle along a sidewalk?

Can I turn this on an angle to trim my sidewalks?
Asked by: David
I turn mine upside down and use it as an edger and it works fine. I am going to purchase the edger attachment though as that will work much better along the driveway and sidewalks.

how often to fill oil,

I bought a new c430, no manual, no funnel in box my PC does not can download your instructions.
Asked by: bubuman
You only need to fill the oil as needed. It doesn't burn oil so all you need to do is check the oil level from time to time.

I've had this product for 2 years now and have had only one problem with it which I caused. I stored it standing on the power head and that will cause oil to seep into the cylinder. The safety feature for this is that the cord will not pull when it happens so that no damage is done to the motor. The fix for it was in the manual that came with it and after following the instructions it started right up. I use it all the time for long periods of time and have never had any over heating issues. I have the roto tiller attachment which also works great in my garden and I will be getting the edger attachment soon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So & So First of all, you have to understand the basics of how an engine works to NOT make the simple mistakes owners are making with this unit. The unit has a crankcase with oil in it. You never use it or store it other than in a horizontal position....oil running to the upper engine will make it smoke and foul the sparkplug. Gasoline running out of the carburetor bowl will leak out and flood the sparkplug. The nicest thing about a 4-stroke is that the carb won't become eventually clogged from the gas/oil mixture which starting....leading the user to believe it's finished....time to buy a new one. Treat it like your lawn mower or any other engine...never turn it upside it horizontal and you shouldn't have any problems.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do NOT buy ! I purchased this trimmer to replace our older Troy Built trimmer that I could no longer buy parts for, bug mistake ! First off; stayed with a 4-cycle gas so my wife and daughter didn't have to worry about mixing gas if I wasn't around, turns out it doesn't matter as neither one of them has ever been able to get this thing to start, it is often near impossible to pull the starter cord and really pulls back hard for some reason. NEVER had this problem with our old trimmer. Second is the design of the line feed; can't seem to go more than about ten feet before it stops feeding and you have to disassemble the head and reload the string which is a real pain ( two separate lines through two different holes, all while holding the two pieces of the head together then trying to install the screw that holds it all together. : / ), obviously the design engineers at Ryobi have never actually used a string trimmer in their lives. Buying the electric version would have eliminated the starting problem, but them replacement batteries cost as much as a new trimmer... I'm sure my neighbors will be happy when I return this for another trimmer so their kids won't have to cover their ears any more ; )

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Biggest Piece of Junk I ever bought Horrible product. Problematic from day one. The feeding mechanism is terribly designed, I spend more time winding up line than I do cutting weeds. The motor faulty and cheap, fails to start, then dies all the time. I have had a electric weed eater for 18 years and I wanted to upgrade to a gas one. This one was a horrible mistake. It now takes me more time to weed eat my lawn than it did with an electric one. STAY AWAY FROM THIS PRODUCT!!! In fact, I will never buy a Ryobi product again because of this thing. I had enough of it today and just plain dumped it in the trash after a year. NEVER BUYING RYOBI AGAIN!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst Ryobi product ever purchased I have owned a Ryobi four cycle gas trimmer before and it worked fine for about five years and then I purchased another one because I had all the attachments. Unfortunately this purchase has been an extreme lemon it will turn on cold work for about 10 minutes heat up and then no matter how many times you pull on the string it won't turn on. There have been other reviewer's that complained about the same thing I didn't listen because of my previous purchase. There is a warranty but you have to take it to an authorized repair shop. But I always get it back the same, works fine for 10 min then inoperable. Stay away.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do NOT Buy!!! I had this trimmer for a very short time. While it ran it ran great but then just died. I talked to a few repair shops and they all said that they are known to have problems. Made from cheap parts. Mine would still start and run but with barely enough power to get the head turning. I have a good knowledge of engines and went through the whole thing and didn't see anything wrong but still could not get it running right. The repair shop I took it to said they tried everything they could and still nothing and advised just replacing it. Very disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile machine I love this tool, my storage space is limited and the ability to use multiple attachments on this device has made my yard work more manageable. The heavy brush tool and the Rototiller attachment were literally a game changer for beating back my small forest. My only regret is that I did not buy this tool sooner.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't buy it! Great idea Ryobi - making a product that has multiple attachments. But your product stinks! I've got two now (one at my house, one at my son's) that are now useless and just past the ridiculously short warranty period. Save yourself some trouble - buy another brand.
