This product will fail the first few times you use it - NOT BY ACCIDENT.
The cap at the bottom of this consists of a metal bolt that screws into the bottom of the shaft. You will need to remove this cap every time the string gets stuck or broken, which is frequent.
The problem is that the metal bolt is inside of a plastic "nut" around it, which is made of cheap plastic and VERY EASILY strips whenever you need to remove this end cap.
I have to believe that this is a very common problem, and I have no doubt that Ryobi and Home Depot are and have been aware of this problem because once the plastic cap is stripped (as it soon will be) you will have to purchase another unit or pay for "service".
For me, it appears to be planned and I don't recommend anybody purchase this.

I've owned several trimmers (both gas & electric) and this one is absolute garbage. Line does not advance like the bump type. Each time line gets too short you must turn it off, loosen the head and manually pull line out, retighten, restart. To make matters worse, the line breaks or wears out extremely quick. I have to pull line out about every 25' of trimming (sooner if I come to a post or similar obstacle. Also, very poor instructions.

My Toro stringtrimmer attachment broke, so I picked up this replacement. It fit perfectly and I was back to work in no time. Incidentally the other big box store doesn't carry it.

The Expand-it universal curved shaft string trimmer attachment was what I expected and arrived in a timely manner.

I am going on my third season of with this trimming attachment. I purchased my curved attachment at the same time I purchased the Ryobi power-head, as the combo with the curved shaft was out of stock at the time. Nevertheless, this attachment has performed flawlessly throughout the rigors of my woods and yard. The reel design can sometimes make it difficult to thread new line into the spool, so I generally take the extra step and disassemble the reel to thread the line, then winding line into the spool is a cinch. I am very happy with my attachment [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

I have a handyman who works for me, as I cannot easily handle yard work anymore. This will make it easier for him.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Raton I was expecting something much easier to handle and less hassle
I was expecting something much easy to handle , to wind up the string is kind hard and once you get it to run is kind of frustrating to make the string to work like it should , you stop and pull the string everytime you need more string .
