Answer: 
I don't believe mine came with a shoulder strap. It's not very heavy, nothing like the gas trimmer experience. You may not feel like you need one. It's balanced pretty well, I can even do some edging with it by changing the grip and holding the thicker part.

Answer: 
No shoulder strap. But the handle angle is easily adjustable and it is balanced well so you don't notice the heavy battery that much actually.

The 40-Volt X Trimmer does not come with a shoulder strap. However, most universal shoulder straps will work with this item. Thank you for your question!

Answer: 
I have two batteries and charge one between uses and the other when I start trimming. In Florida it gets used weekly. I do not have long term experience with the 40 V battery but have been using the 18 V system for about two years and they live on the charger when not in use.

Answer: 
Yes, leaving the battery on the charger will keep the battery pack maintained and at a full charge. It will not negatively affect the life of the pack. All of our batteries are backed by a 3 year limited warranty.

40-Volt X Lithium-Ion Cordless Attachment Capable String Trimmer - Battery and Charger Not Included is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 65.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Over all its a good product Overall its a great product, it does exactly whats it supposed to and the extra attachments it does more while saving some money and extra space in the garaga. However the battery needs to be improved, whilt on a single charge i can we the weed eat, edge, and use the blower on a single charge but in the last 10 months i have gone threw 3 batteries and am now on my 4th because the charger says they are defective while ryobi will replace them under warrenty it is a hassle.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from RETURNED. POOR POWER. DO NOT BUY. GET THE BRUSHLESS I lost a part in my Ryobi 40volt unit with the brushless motor in the head. So, not being able to find the part, I purchased this one for around the same price. It is AWFUL. DO NOT BUY. You don't achieve good rpm for cutting more than a perfectly manicured lawn. Also, the heft around your arms is big compared to the lighter brushless head. I cannot recommend this item at all. Look for the one with the motor in the head and buy that one. It's brushless and gets twice the rpms as well as twice the power.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from On part with basic gas weedeaters All my life I've used 2 cycle weedeaters, it taught me how to cuss. I feel like they are so sensitive. So when I was looking for a new weedeater I flipped between 4 cycle and this battery one. Trying to rid myself of gas, oil, and maintenance I moved my entire set of yard tools to the 40v tools. This weedeater got less use than the mower since I bought but it works well. Just pull the trigger and you are off to the races. I have 3 batteries so I can run the mower, weedeaters and blow the sidewalk off without recharging. Since they are so easy to use the wife is sometimes inclined to provide a hand. Wouldn't hesitate to purchase again. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do not buy I bought the trimmer and blower. It worked great the first couple times I used them. They were very handy as the trimmer let you use any attachments that you may have. Problem was the first time I used the blower and ran both batteries all the way down, they would no longer charge. There is a flashing green and red light on the charger that tells you that there is a problem. Since both batteries now flashed red and green, I called the manufacturer to find out what was going on here. He told me that they were shot after just three uses. I took them back to Home Depot and exchanged them for other models. EGo makes a 56 volt trimmer that performs better but does not have the attachment element. I went with the Ryobi back pack blower that has a ton of power and really gets the job done with no worries of expensive battery replacement.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Powerful and well balanced I've replaced my gas trimer with this one. It is very powerful, so much in fact that I never fully squeeze the trigger. I'm also pleased that the "throttle" is 100% variable...in other words, its not all on or off or some fraction there of...you have complete control over the power. The battery lasts forever. I have a 5000 square foot yard. I mow the yard with my lawn mower, then put the same battery in the trimmer and do all the trimming with plenty of battery to spare. The tool has a similar balanced feel that you get from a gas model which was important to me. I think all the other similar models with smaller batteries feel very odd because of the way they are balanced, especially when turned sideways edging the walk. This one feels great. I liked that I was able to purchase the tool without the charger and battery since I already have those. This tool makes having a gas trimmer obsolete.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product!!!! I have had this for a couple of years and it is the best trimmer that I have ever owned. The lithium battery is always ready to go and no more fuel and oil mixture. It is as powerful or more then my gas trimmers. Battery easily last doing my 1 1/2 acre yard. I have since added a pole saw which I haven't used yet and several other 40v tools. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loving ALL my Ryobi 40V cordless yard tools Works just as well as any gas trimmer I have ever used. The fact that it separates in the middle makes it very easy to change the angle for both vertical and horizontal trimming, with the added benefit of using other attachments. The battery lasts longer than my arms do for long trimming efforts (I took down a field of weeds in around 45 minutes without draining the battery fully).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best cordless Plenty of power for around the yard. I like the idea that the motor is on the handle and not the bottom like the older model I had it keeps the clipping from clogging the vents and the motor stays cooler. I like the bump line feed on this better than the auto feed model line advances smoothly . So far very satisfied especially for the price.
