Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JamesR Exactly as expected.
Being a 4 cycle it works as exactly as expected as long as stored correctly and you add oil occasionally. I was a little concerned by some of the review about using the attachments, since it is a 4 cycle.So far i have been able to use the hedge trimmer, the cultivator, the edger, the pole saw with no problems , as long as i consider the angle of the engine and do not hold it a position that might cause issue for too long. Overall good buy, and in all fairness I have only had it a couple of months , but still no issues so far.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Brad88 Only Used it once so far
Only used it once so far, but it was amazing, had so much power, and ran great. Can't wait to use it again.

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.

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?
