Customer Questions & Answers

What is involved in setting up motor for high (4000 ft) altitude operation. And who can do the work.

I'm a little perturbed that my local store would sell a trimmer not setup for our altitude.
Asked by: Rich
Hi Rich, Thanks for visiting our site! The Federal Code for high altitude is anything over 4,000 ft. You are at the cusp of high altitude, so to adjust your engine for the thinner air, you will need to open up the air mixture screw on the carburetor to supply more air. You will need to adjust both, the idle and the throttle mixing screws. Crank the engine and turn the low idle screw until the engine misfires, then turn the same screw the other way until it misfires again, and settle in between those two points. Repeat the process with the fast idle(throttle) screw with the engine at full speed. These screws are often labeled "L" for low speed idle, and "H" for high speed throttle. Some engines require special tools to access these screws, so a dealer for that brand will perform the adjustments. Be absolutely sure that the fuel is mixed properly and is fresh before attempting to adjust the carburetor. Thank you for asking, -Travis

Does the current 2015 RY34441 engine have plastic camshaft?

I read the reviews, and a person who purchased the 4 cycle engine trimmer in 2012, said that the engine had plastic camshaft. Likewise, the engine lasted only 3 year before the plastic camshaft melted. Does the current 2015 Ry34441 model with the 30 cc engine still have plastic camshaft?
Asked by: Nari
Hello Nari. Thanks for your inquiry! The current Ryobi trimmers do not have a plastic camshaft. Thanks for reaching out to us!

what is the difference between the X430 I own and the S430 posted here?

Asked by: cellularguy
Hi thanks for your interest in the Ryobi product line. The above mentioned numbers are in reference to the series, engine cc, and shaft variations. The S430 means it is a straight shaft unit that has a 4 cycle 30 cc engine. The CS430 would have the same engine, but instead it would have a curved shaft.

How do you replace the string

I cannot imsert the string into the eyelets as described in the owner manual
Asked by: JoeBear
Hi JoeBear, you will need to line the arrows on the spool up with the 2 eyelet holes and you should be able to feed your line through. For additional assistance on this feel free to speak to a customer service representative at 1-800-860-4050. Thanks!

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 1 out of 5 by from Not Worth. It worked fine for 9-10 months. Then it started to leak gas from the cap and latter on I was not able to get it to start it. My first Ryobi 2-cycle string trimer lasted about 4-5 years. My second Ryobi 2-cycle string trimer lasted about 2 years. Bad quality. WILL NEVER CONSIDER PURCHASING ANY TOOLS FROM THIS COMPANY.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Junk Bought this 4 cycle edger about two weeks ago. Used it once for about 1 1/2 hours. Started fine the first time but started cutting out towards the end (and yes I filled it with oil before I started). Went to use it a second time and engine is completely frozen up. Can't pull cord at all. Total lemon
