Customer Questions & Answers

What is the difference between this trimmer and the other cheaper 40v Ryobi Trimmer (Model # RY40210A)?

Asked by: Boomer
It depends on what other one your talking about. They have some that come without batter charger and or battery and some that are not attachment capable.

Cutting head rotation

Which way does the cutting head rotate? I want a trimmer that rotates the way most curved shaft trimmers rotate and I believe that is clock wise.
Asked by: PMP350
According to the instructions after removing the battery, you step down on the foot pedal and rotate the trimmer head counterclockwise. In my instance doing things properly is of no use at all, the head jammed permanently on the day I first bought it. Good luck with yours. You will need it.

how many batteries are included with the unit?

Asked by: cedar
You can buy it with or without battery. Better value to purchase with battery.

Bought one of these last night. Ready to get started. Next question is after battery is charged where is best place to store battery?

On charger? Off of the charger? On the attachment? Should battery be exposed to hot and cold temps in storage shed?
Asked by: DoDa
On the charger in a place that is relatively temperature controlled. The charger will keep it topped up without using a whole lot of electricity to do it. It needs to be someplace where it doesn't routinely get below 50 F or above 90F for long periods of time. I keep mine in the mudroom. When I get the ductless AC/Heat unit in the garage (my garage is insulated) I'll move them out there.

Ryobi 40-Volt Lithium-Ion Cordless Attachment Capable String Trimmer is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 938.

I switched from a gas trimmer and while this isn't as powerful, it works just fine. I think a lot of the unhappy reviews are from people expecting the electric trimmer to be as powerful as a gas unit, and the battery's somehow also supposed to last for hours. Come on, people, battery technology isn't there yet. It works great for what it is, an electric adaptable system to various yard tasks. If you have an acre of knee-high grass, no, it's not going to do it in one go. If you're using the hedge trimmer attachment, no, it's not going to cut straight through 1/2" branches like a 2hp gas unit. If you're cutting down an oak tree with the pole saw attachment... seriously? There's a saying, "it's a poor craftsman who blames his tools." I'm happy with it when used as designed.

I have a normal 1/4 acre suburban yard and I can weed eat the entire yard, attach the edger and edge my driveway and sidewalk before it runs out of power. it has great power. no messing with gas and no pulling on a string , just slide in the battery and it goes. I like it so much I bought the 40v blower with battery and I don't think I need the extra battery. I would buy again.

Was concerned about how much power it would have and how long it would last. It has the same power as the 25cc 2 stroke gas powered one that it is replacing. It lasts longer than I do, so long enough for sure. Much easier to use than gas, like the difference between a standard drill and a variable speed drill. Also much quieter, and all of my Expand-It stuff fit right on it. I wish I would have bought this a long time ago.

This is a great product that compares in cutting power to a gas powered trimmer with less noise, less pollution and constant power. The addition of the cutting blade attachment extends quite considerably its cutting power to tackle thick grass. Running this with solar power together with other 40V Ryobi tools. Very happy with its performance, quality and customer service.

I also have the blower and the hedge trimmer, all use the 40 volt Lithium battery. This cordless string trimmer was a gift from my husband. I have had the opportunity to use this trimmer one time, it trims just as well as the gas operated trimmer, only I don't have to put gas in it and pull a cord to get it started any more. I highly recommend any item from Ryobi that uses the 40 volt Lithium battery. They run forever before you ever have to recharge the battery. You will not be disappointed in the performance that these items have.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice trimmer Great trimmer for light/medium duty use. The charge lasted about a half hour of continuous use. I was surprised by the power this trimmer has. It replaced my 3 year old 20V trimmer that only lasted about 15 mins.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does the job This trimmer is a 5-star value because it comes with the battery and charger which basically cost just as much on their own. (Maybe that makes the battery and charger pack a terrible value but that's a different review). The charge lasts a really long time. It's a powerful device. The autoload works well and the strings last a long time. I had a corded trimmer before this and it would have to be reloaded twice per session and I've still yet to reload my trimmer after three uses. Downsides: The debris guard tends to not work in that I still get a ton of debris on my pants. Also, it is heavier than I thought it would be. It also doesn't angle well.
