being a 4 stroke, can you run ethanol gas with out damaging the carburator like the 2 stroke

Asked by: br549
You can run 10% ethanol, but the user manual discourages E-85 gas. Alcohol-free gasoline is best, because it is less likely to gum up over time. Always use a fuel stabiizer, and filtering the gas is recommended, as passages inside the carburetor are extremely small.

Will my old attachments work on new models

I have an older Ryobi Expand it Model TP30 with all the attachments(chain saw,hedge trimmer,weed wacker, & an extension pole) will they work with the new models out now,and if so which Models.
Asked by: KK
Older attachments work with the newer model. The bigger question is, are you aware of the overwhelmingly poor reviews for Ryobi 2 and 4-cycle grass trimmers? I disregarded the poor reviews, thinking my past (decent) 20-year history w/ Ryobi outdoor power equipment would somehow mean my experience with a new trimmer would be different from other people's. Last month, I bought Ryobi's 4 cycle, proceeding to return to Home Depot 3 different times to exchange. Yesterday, I said no more after 3 (or it may have been 4) Ryobi 4-cycle trimmers in ~30 days.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Complete Monster! This thing is a beast! A total monster. As can be expected from a 4 stroke, this thing has tons of power and torque. It is a little heavier than the two strokes, but the power is worth it. I pulled it out of the box, read the directions (actually important), added the oil, and after some assembly I was ready to go. I followed the directions and it started with two pulls, but stalled. It was cold outside. Two more pulls and it was running. I had no problems cutting heavy brush, twigs and stuff. You really need to be careful, because this thing can really launch rocks and stuff. I love the string head, but I did need to take it apart for the first reload because the line broke inside the head. Cleaned up most of my acre in a few hours. You'll never go back to a 2 stroke.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor performance Purchased the new unit in April 2016. Worked like a charm. Because of no rain for 60 days in Georgetown Texas I did not get to use again until July. I could not keep it running in July. What does that mean? Oil type lubricant - gas leaked thru the filter area and would not keep running.. Return or Service - ah 10 days past return date sorry! Okay Ryobi units in the past have been wonderful. I can handle service. 8 weeks later my unit was ready. Nothing found wrong with the unit . Ran the unit today - oh well worked for 20 minutes and the same problems started again. There is a major problem possibly in high heat areas? I do not know but I will end up eating this unit. May have to check out Lowes. They have a real problem and will not share the information. Owners manual read the box about it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really enjoy the power of a gas trimmer Despite seeing the reviews split 50/50 between 5 stars & 1 star I decided to make the purchase. Home Depot's return policy is fantastic. I have used the trimmer a few times now and love it. As long as you fill it with the right gas and follow the instructions it starts every time and runs very smooth. It does take a short amount of time from trigger press to full power, but once at full it cuts through everything with ease. With the increased size of the trimmer head & line I have cut my trimming time in half. I also purchased a compatible edger attachment and was blown away by the power and ease. I was able to cut a crisp line down my sidewalk in no time and with little effort. It is still early so I can not speak to longevity, but I am hopeful I will be able to use this for seasons to come. So far it has completely exceeded my expectations.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quiet and Dependable I don't know what planet most of these folks posting bad reviews are on. I understand if there's broke perhaps but other than that, this trimmer is great. It's a lot quieter than the 2 cycle stuff being sold. I've had mine for 3 years and it starts up after winter storage with no problem. I purchased the limb cutter and it works great too. ....maybe folks are not feeding it normal gas?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 4-strokes rule. After decades of dealing with balky 2-stroke outdoor tools, I am fed up.Since I ... 4-strokes rule. After decades of dealing with balky 2-stroke outdoor tools, I am fed up.Since I already had a Ryobi 2-stroke trimmer, which was so hard to start that I began to develop shoulder problems from trying to get it running, I decided to try the 4-stroke head unit only, as my trimmer attachment would work with it. I have only used it for a few hours, but so far, I am very pleased. It starts every time with 1 or 2 pulls. The only difficulty I had was on the first start, when the engine would not turn; I removed the spark plug, sprayed some WD-40 in the combustion chamber, and gave it several pulls until the engine turned over easily. Put the plug back in, and it started on the second pull. I was alarmed by the number of 1-star reviews, but after reading them, I am convinced that most, if not all, bad experiences were due to owner ignorance. 1) Small engines have small carburetors; small carburetors have extremely tiny fuel passages. With a 4-stroke engine, NEVER let it sit for a long time with fuel in the tank/carburetor. Drain the tank, then run the engine dry. You can't do this with a 2-stroke, because the piston needs the oil in the gas mix for lubrication. If the carburetor is not drained, then fuel will evaporate, form varnish, and eventually clog the tiny fuel passages. If at all possible, use alcohol-free gasoline, which is less prone to form varnish, and add an ounce or 2 of Stabil or similar fuel stabilizer. When in doubt, toss the fuel, and start with fresh gas. 2) A 4-stroke engine has an oil sump. On this 30cc engine, the fuel sump holds only 2.2 ounces of oil. If you let the oil run low, or use the wrong grade of oil, the engine will almost certainly be damaged. CHECK THE OIL LEVEL EVERY TIME BEFORE STARTING THE ENGINE. Use 20W-50 conventional oil, or 15W-50 synthetic (such as Mobil 1). These heavy grades of oil can usually be found in a motorcycle oil section of an auto parts store. When held in the "normal" operating position, the oil sump will be at the bottom of the engine. DO NOT operate it 90° to vertical, or upside down. The tool attachment has holes so that it can be rotated at 90° intervals. If you use the engine at any other angle, the oil sump will be starved, and the engine will be damaged. 3) Not related to the 4-stroke engine, but several reviewers complained about plant matter wrapping around the shaft. There is a gap between the cutting head and the tube. This gap exists so that you can get a wrench on the shaft, but the opening can trap plant matter, especially if you are whacking tall grass. My solution was to cut a second of soda can about 1/2" wide, and wrap it around the upper body of the gear box, closing the gap. I used doubled sided tape between the aluminum and the gear box, then secured the aluminum with duct tape. Then I took a piece of semi-rigid plastic sheet, ~1/16" thick, and about 5/8" wide, and secured it over the aluminum. This overlaps the spinning head assembly, without actually rubbing against it. With the gap closed, even the tallest grass no longer gets caught. 4) I have never used a bump feed trimmer that I liked. They all jam eventually. I replaced the bump feed trimmer with one that has two slots for pre-cut 0.95" cutter line. When the line wears down, I just push out the old pieces and slide in new ones. I gave this 4 stars because I have reliability concerns about the plastic camshaft (I haven't actually checked to see if it's still plastic, or if Ryobi has upgraded to metal). If well lubricated, the plastic should hold up, but there is very little room for error. Use the wrong oil, let it run dry, or hold it upside down, and the engine is almost certain to be destroyed. If the 4-stroke power head continues to work reliably, I may add other attachments. If it doesn't, I will update my review.
