It will depend on what brand of powerhead you have. its possible that If it's made by Bolens, Columbia,Craftsman, Cub Cadet, HomeLite, MTD, Remington, Ryobi, Troy-Bilt, Yard Macines, Poulan, and perhaps others it will work with the Expand-IT multi-vendor expansion units including the pole saw you seek.

It will depend on what brand of powerhead you have. its possible that If it's made by Bolens, Columbia,Craftsman, Cub Cadet, HomeLite, MTD, Remington, Ryobi, Troy-Bilt, Yard Macines, Poulan, and perhaps others it will work with the Expand-IT multi-vendor expansion units including the pole saw you seek. Look for the Expand-IT compatible logo on the packaging of the pole saw. As all the ones above are made buy the same parent company: MTD - there is a good chance you will be able to pick one up at Home Depot with this capability. There are other pole saw attachments made for other brand power heads that may also or may only work with your powerhead. You'll want to look at the type of split boom you have and what both it's shaft diameter and shaft connection is (shape [frequently square] & it's internal connection length. This is important because as many products are interchangable, even when made by the same corporation under different brands - they made not be compatible.. A good example of this is only Honda's pole saw attachment works on Honda's powerhead. Only Stihl's works on Stihl's power head. And, remarkably, even though Husqvarna makes the Poulan powerhead - the pole saw option for Husqvarna is proprietary to it's brand (and some Poulan Pro Series) - while the Poulan are able to use the Expand-IT compatible pole saw available from several manufacturers including many but not all of the aformentioned MTD companies. If you have an Expand-IT capable powerhead on your string trimmer - all of the optional Expand-IT attachments/options will work. You may see videos or other information where individuals have modified their powerhead or attachments by adding a home made coupler, physically modifying (read bending or cutting away at the shaft to get the powerhead and attachment to "fit" together) As this would certainly void your warranty and could cause serious bodily harm - this is not something that most rational people would consider or advise. Particularly when one is operating something like a pole saw above their head. =-) Read Less

DO NOT BUY THIS MODEL. A handheld trimmer MUST be a 2-cycle, not a 4-cycle. See my review. Whether or not this thing can run on ethanol is not important, it runs badly for a short time, then quits.

You can, but just not E85. I think the max allowable was E10 per the instructions. If you do run it with anything over E10 you void the warranty. I would also run a tank of ethanol free occasionally and before putting it up for the season.

String stuck in spool

This question is from 4-Cycle 30cc Attachment Capable Straight Shaft Gas Trimmer
Asked by
San Jose
Read all my Q&A
May 16, 2016
String broke off at edge of the spool. I read the instructions and tried to advance the string but it seems stuck. I spent a few hours trying to unravel the string, but that one piece is still stuck and I cannot insert new string.

Essentially, the trimmer is useless, without a new spool.

How do I get a new spool? Or better yet, how can I get a different type of spool?

Answer: 
Automatic spools are a pain and always have been. Go to your local HomeDepot and look at the many new heads for line trimmers. I always use the auto head until the line is gone or even jammed as has happened to you but I always replace it with one that you insert precut lengths of line because they last forever and you can use better types of string that last longer too.

Rated 2.6 out of 5 by 497 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Ryobi Trimmer - worst purchase ever This is the second time we've purchased this trimmer believing the first engine had a quirky manufacturer defect or ethanol issue. The perk of this trimmer is the attachments, we've purchased most of them-but engine can't handle them. In fact, it can't even handle the trimmer line. With both the first and second engines initially it easily starts-don't be fooled. After using it 20 minutes the engine begins to stutter. During the second use not only did the engine stutter and miss- it smokes-eventually overheating and cutting off. It uses oil like crazy, too. Go back to the drawing board on this trimmer Ryobi. The worst purchase/headache ever. Home Depot rethink selling this Ryobi product. July 19, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Never got it started.... I was originally drawn to Ryobi based on Consumer Reports ranking of their 2-cycle model, but was very interested in a 4-cycle trimmer so thought I'd give this one a shot. Unfortunately, I never got it started. I followed the starting instructions precisely, but after 10-15 pulls without anything that sounded like a spark I knew I was in trouble. I thought that perhaps the engine was flooded with too much priming, so I gave it a few hours and then came back and tried again. Still nothing. Took the motor housing off to make sure that the spark plug was installed properly, no issues there but no matter what I did it would not crank. I exchanged it for the 2-cycle option that was originally recommended by CR and it started up right away. July 24, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Maybe just bad luck...probably not. Bought this trimmer the other day. Chose Ryobi because my last trimmer was Ryobi and I have many attachments for the unit (hedge clipper, blower, chainsaw, etc). Easy to put together. Started up fine and had good power. Used it for about ten minutes straight. Turned off to switch to another attachment (blower). Pull started under full choke, but cut out when switched to half choke. Tried several times, nothing. Gave it a half hour rest, same problem. Returned unit to the store for replacement. Replacement unit started up fine and had similar power. Turned off to test. Tried to start back up and didn't even pull start under full choke. Double checked with fresh gas. Nothing. Returned to store. Guess I'll have to find another brand with compatible attachments. July 16, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Piece of junk Wish I had read the reviews first. Constantly stalls and very difficult to restart. I am going to tray to take it back even though I have had it for about 90 days. Only has about one engine hour on it. July 24, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by This Unit Will develop problems with average use Purchased an earlier version of this unit (3 yrs ago), an even new out of the box was crancky to start, but once started, provided adequate power. The trimmer attachment never correctly bump-feeds the string line. And finally, now the timing belt constantly jumps the cog after something in the engine wears down. No adjustment can be made, and replacing the timing belt is difficult due to a shaft bearing that is impossible to remove. July 13, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Two out of two attachments failed Bought this Ryobe 4-cycle engine to use with the trimmer, tiller, hedge trimmer, chain saw and edger. Engine started easily but much more noisier than I expected at full throttle. Tried the string trimmer first. It failed to feed the string on one end which required opening up resetting it which is not easy at all. I gave up on that. Then, I assembled the tiller which is easy to do so but the gear box was rock solid jammed. It did not even turn at all. It should have turned easily. I did not even bother to attach to the engine to prevent the drive shaft being torn. Packed it and returned all. Wasted nearly five hours of my weekend afternoon. May 14, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Poor Poor Poor Got it home. Set it up easily. Ran for about 5 minutes and worked beautifully. Idled with a little bit of stutter, but wasn't obnoxiously loud to operate, like other gas trimmers. They, suddenly, it stopped. Tried and tried and tried again to get it started and nothing. Taking it back right now. July 17, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by One use, and thread is stuck inside spool I used this product once after purchasing. The trimmer string/thread will not extract. There appears to be no feasible way to remove the spool button on this piece of equipment to even re-thread the darn thing. A total waste of $200! July 12, 2016
