Rated 5 out of 5 by This one has it all!!! I have the original 40v string trimmer and liked it, but wished it had the expand it capabilities and the higher placed motor. When Ryobi came out with the new model I had to have it, and since I wanted another battery anyway it was a no brainer to buy this. I haven't used it a lot yet, but enough to know I like the balance better and the dual string head. Thanks Ryobi for always thinking of how to make your products better while incorporating the same battery system. June 4, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Powerful and well-balanced When you open the box to this Ryobi Trimmer there will be some assembly required, you will need to attach the grass deflector and then attach the attachment shaft to the powerhead shaft less than 5 minutes with no tools needed, then charge the battery then you're ready to go. The dual cutting head has a cut with .080 line from 13 inches to 15 inches for increased runtime or wider cutting. The cutting head has what's called REELEASY for faster reloads.  The battery is a 40 volt lithium ion hi capacity with a 90 minute charger. The battery itself has an graduated LED light to let you see how far along its charging also the charger has an LED light to go from red to green. This trimmer will cover up to one acre. One nice thing to note is that this Ryobi Trimmer can accept 5 power attachments that they call EXPAND-IT line that are not included but this is a nice feature from a cultivator to an edger and what looks like to be a leaf blower and a couple of different heads for grass trimming, just detached the power head shafts and attach the new attachment. After charging the battery which took approximately one hour, I was pleased about how powerful this trimmer is and very manageable to handle around the yard, it cut nicely along the driveway and around trees tap the bottom of the cutting head and out shoots the new line. There is a extra cutting line that comes with the trimmer so you won't have an interruption in your yard work. The handle that's attached to the shaft is also adjustable from side to side for a more comfortable fit. I've had gas trimmers and it seems to be a close competitor in the power arena. The battery will run many other tools made by Ryobi sold at Home Depot in the EXPAND-IT line. This trimmer comes with a 3 year warranty and a 90 day return. One has to appreciate a company that backs its own products. March 25, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by A powerful workhorse This trimmer chews it up. I have been through at least three gas trimmers and am on my second electric trimmer in the past decade, and this battery operated trimmer is a pleasure to use from an ease of use standpoint. It comes up to speed and just doesn't bog down. The Li-ion battery lasts for a good 40 minutes, which is about all the weedeating I can handle in one session. June 3, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Oh Contrare! Contrary to some previous reviews: 1) This IS a 2-line string trimmer (although it's one piece on the spool); 2) It DOES "bump feed" (at full-throttle); 3) Battery is LONG-LASTING (40+ minutes at full charge); and is 4) POWERFUL (enough to tear the bark off trees.) In addition, it's high quality, heavy duty, revs quickly, comfortable to use....best of all? MUCH QUIETER than our gas trimmer! What I don't like? I'm used to the opposite-direction line rotation on my gas trimmer and have to adjust my position so the debris doesn't fly toward me! Haven't tried attachments, but that's probably a nice feature too. April 11, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Works really good This is a huge upgrade if you have been using the 18 volt model. It really plows thru the thick stuff. It was super easy to put together. I am not sure yet if it works better than the other 40 volt Ryobi unit, but time will tell. My video does a better job of going over all the points. May 2, 2014
