Customer Questions & Answers

What is the most preferred type of trmmer head shaft configuaration, Curved or Strait?

Asked by: Scootter
That depends on the application a straight shaft is better for larger open areas, edging and commercial use because of the various attachments. A curved shaft is better for light duty yard work and is lighter in weight.

compatability with the Troy bilt TB22EC

Is this attachment plug in compatible with the Troy bilt TB22EC ???????
Asked by: Fred
Just bought one today for my TB22EC, it says on the box that it works with Troy-Bilts that accept attachments(along with at least 10 other brands). I haven't actually used it in the yard yet, but I did start it and make sure it at least spun. It was a little tight putting it into the coupler, but it did snap in place. Taking it off however was pretty difficult. Bonus points for the easy spool head.

does exand-it fit to click link ryobi 132r

have a great working ryobi 132r but spool and bum head is failing
Asked by: hacksaws7
Yes this shaft should fit most any ryobi trimmer and as for the head, not to be insulting or funny but If you aren't using the stock head check out how you installed it, I've seen way to many guys put a different head on the shaft on upside down so they can get a better and closer trim. the head wears out to quick

If you get frustrated reloading a single line trimmer, wait until you try this dual line job. I just spent 4 hours doing a 30 minute job. The line locks up frequently, requiring head disassembly to clear. When empty, if you can reload new line without swearing, you are a saint. I'll get my old Weedeater repaired and never use this attachment again.

The cheapest way I could get a safety shroud was to order the entire bottom piece. Ruining told me they would send me a handle. That was a month ago. Will never purchase a refurbished unit again

Difficult to review the trimmer attachment because our Ryobi power head won't start. Could not recommend Ryobi products. Granted, they are inexpensive, but they're very low quality and do not last.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Junk 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.
