Customer Questions & Answers

Is there an edging function with this?

Asked by: steve
There is as much of an edging function on this trimmer as there is on other string trimmers. Just turn the machine on it's side and edge away. No need for a wheel. Works great.

Asked by: Danny
To my knowledge, no. You could always cut your own from a spool.

Can you use a 100 ft 14 ga. extension cord with this trimmer?

The specification sheet says a 50 ft cord but conventional electrical specifications allow a 100 ft. cord with a 7 amp load. For instance, the Black & Decker 7.5 amp string trimmer specifies a 100 ft. 16 ga. cord.
Asked by: HNL11
It will work. If you have low voltage (think summer with everyone's air conditioner running), then it may be a stretch.

Can after market trimmer heads be used on this trimmer. I'm referring to the heads that can be installed on gasoline trimmers.

Asked by: Curious
The direction of head rotation is important. You can't use the heads with red bump knobs, since they turn the opposite direction.

7.5 Amp Electric String Trimmer is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 143.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple, solid tool that performs. I needed a powerful trimmer that was corded so I didn't have to deal with dead batteries and it would work 15 years from now.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I have two of these. Some tricks to getting it to run right In general, string trimmers are for the patient and slightly masochistic personality. They are not easy to keep running. Plan on 100% maintenance time (use it for an hour, service it for an hour). especially for the gasoline powered ones. These tools take a tremendous beating, especially the heads. Keep a couple of replacement heads and bump knob's around. Generally, plan on replacing the heads yearly or more frequently if you use the machine heavily. I've tried dozens of string trimmers and the ryobi corded electric one works pretty well. We have nearly an acre of heavy weeds to deal with on the side of a mountain and a combination of a DR brush mower and the Ryobi electric's works pretty well. There isn't a lot of long flat runs so the DR is of limited use. It really takes two people. One operating the machine, and the other maintaining. Same goes for chain saws,and just about any power equipment that involves soil being around when the tool is working. It's particularly bad for edge tools. First, the trigger is a pain. It's designed so that you can't accidentally turn it on. You must have your index finger fully to the bottom of the trigger or it won't start. Second, stringing it is a pain. This is true of all string trimmers that use long lengths of monofilament. Do not use old string that has been in the sun. The UV rot's the monofilament and it breaks easily. If the color looks faded on the monofilament, get new stock. After you have the spool wound and inserted in the head, make sure that the "bump" works correctly, and the monofilament doesn't tangle. It's important that the monofilament doesn't get underneath the feed spool, or everything jams and breaks. On the small head design (7.5 A corded), don't try to use monofilament larger that 0.080". It slows down the head too much if you do, and you don't get the hitting power of heavy weeds that you need. It's also important to keep dirt out of the head, since that slow's things down too, and can cause the head to jam. Forget the battery powered ones if you have a lot of area to cover. The corded version doesn't run out of gas or battery power, and can run most of the day if needed, when you have them tuned up right. Make sure you use heavy enough extension cord. We use #12 two-wire for 100-150 foot runs. It is a pain to drag the cord around. It beats carrying gas around though.

I bought it to replace and old Ryobi electric string trimmer that I loved but that had stopped running. The string spool on this model was redesigned. I cant get it to hold the string without it all being fed out at one time. I put the string spool from my old Ryobi on the new one to finish the job. I plan on returning it to the store.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I want my old Ryobi 132r trimmer back! I got this trimmer because my trusty old Ryobi 132r, which ran problem-free for 14 years, finally burned out. I got it because it was a bit lighter and more powerful than my 132r, despite some bad reviews that the bump-line feeder was flimsy and unreliable. (Gosh, why should there be issues with the feeder?) Well, when I used it, it certainly had the "oomph" to get through high grass nearly effortlessly, but it wasn't long before problems with the bump-line feeder began. One problem was the line would sometimes wrap itself around the narrow shaft neck just above the feeder housing and snap off inside the housing, requiring a tedious opening and reloading of the feeder. Most other times the line would simply stop deploying after perhaps one foot of line was used, causing the line to wear off right at the housing and again requiring opening and reloading the feeder. (I never overloaded the feeder.) The take-away from all of this: They took a robust, reliable feeder design and, rather than change it to make it better, they changed it to make it cheaper and that was all. I'm looking for another brand.
