Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Bob Don't Buy This Product
Each blade was completely worn down before completing one trim of my yard. In big, bold letters are the words "Durable". I guess the Marketing Department must have tested this product on soft butter, not St. Augustine grass when deciding on the word durable. I own or have owned several Ryobi products over the past few years with good results, until I used this one. Today, while at my local Home Depot, I attempted to speak with a manager to show them the product along with my receipt showing where I purchased the product less than three weeks ago. After waiting approximately 15 minutes, I went to shop for the product I came for. If I could have spoken with a manager, I would have advised the product be removed from the shelves. I've never before seen such an inferior product at Home Depot and I've been a frequent visitor over the past 30 years or so. I'll still shop at Home Depot, but will definitely look at future Ryobi product purchases with a different perspective. BTW, a first time reviewer just to give you some sense of how upset I am about this product. If someone with Home Depot is reading this stuff, a photo of the trimmer heads and my receipt have been attached to this review.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by William Wish they lasted longger
Like many others, mine wore out fast! The first time I went to use it I wore out the first one so much a blade slung off! I had the trimmer on HIGH. I changed it to low after that. The second one lasted till I got the edging done but was gone. No way am I going to buy these again. I asked if they make a better head I can use but they dont. If you need to edge a lot then buy the better 40volt edger/trimmer Ryobi makes.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by OO Package sounds good but it won't work on manufacturers stated on package
I have 4 different string cutters and three are listed on the package that accept this device/cutter, but it could not be adapted on any of the three cutters so I returned for credit.

The trimmer is much easier to use with the blade trimmer head.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Frustrated DO NOT BUY!!!
Believe the other negative reviews on this product. Do not ignore them like I did. I have a postage stamp sized front yard. Trimming around the two trees, a few bricks, and edging the extremely short driveway and sidewalk ate up the first head in about 15 mins. Bought these since the auto feed function on my trimmer stopped working and I'd have to manually feed out more line every so often. These are a waste of money and I'm going back to the manual option since the trimmer/edger still works great.

Stick with the string. Can't believe how poorly this held up. Or didn't.
