Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Yardman57 Jury's out on this edger...
I bought this edger to accompany my Ryobi 40001 40V cordless string trimmer. I've been very happy with the string trimmer and with the 40V blower and hedge trimmer expansions - 5 stars on all 3 of those products. I received this edger this past week and went to use it to edge my driveway and sidewalks the next night. About 5 minutes into using the edger the front (guide) wheel fell off, having popped off the (delicate) snap-on wheel cap. I wasn't being rough at all - just pushing the edger along. This happened 3 more times and, when I stopped to put the wheel back on the last time and tried to resume edging, nothing happened when I squeezed the trigger. The battery still showed 3/4 charge but, to be sure, I swapped in a fully-charged battery, to no avail. I made sure that the blade wasn't obstructed or clogged and it spun freely when I turned it by hand. I also disconnected and reconnected the trigger base to the edger extension, to ensure that the electrical connection between the two parts was solid. The trigger base still works with my string trimmer extension so the issue's in the edger extension.
I've read some of this product's other reviews and, overall, everyone seems fairly positive about it. Given my investment in the other Ryobi 40V tools, I had high hopes for this edger. My gas edger, after 13 years of service, has finally expired so this Ryobi edger could really address a need. I ordered this edger from homedepot.com and have just returned it to my local store.
The customer service rep there was very helpful in accepting my return and I decided to give this edger model one more try by ordering another one. I'd *really* like this to work and I hope that the first one I got was just a lemon. I'll either update this review after I get the replacement unit or write a new review.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 1224 Best trimmer i'very used.
I am extremely satisfied with my ryobi grass trimmer. The weight and balance are perfect for me and the feature I like best is the wheels. As I edge my driveway and gardens I let the wheels carry the weight. It does a great job.

I am happy to find a quality product that is from a known brand like Ryobi. If you are like myself and want cordless and the ability to buy attachments Ryobi from the Home Depot is the choice. The ability to have a 40V cordless trimmer and an attachment edger helps in making my lawn look great. There are even other attachments available like a tiller for a garden. Reasonably priced and adaptable to other products, with a future design plan to include all that they make for the cordless family is a big plus.

This edger is a great addition to my sting trimmer. Does a great job cutting along sidewalks or driveway edge. Really extends the usefulness of the sting trimmer. Fit perfectly and works well.
