Is this Ryobi a gas powered weed wscker or do I have to buy the attachment?

Asked by: jim
Hi, Jim- This is just the attachment portion. We have several gas and cordless powerheads that will work. Check out gas model RY251PH, and cordless model RY40225 for two of our most popular options. These will also power most any kind of universal-fit gas attachment. We hope this helps!

Expand-It 18 in. Straight Shaft Trimmer Attachment is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 229.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I bought this to replace an aging one on a Ryobi ES (Electric Start) model I've had for about 15 ... I bought this to replace an aging one on a Ryobi ES (Electric Start) model I've had for about 15 years. I really didn't want to buy the entire thing; all I needed was the spool piece which had all but disintegrated. Unfortunately that replacement spool part was no longer available. The nice thing is that this one hooked up to my existing old motor/shaft unit exactly, and I was right back at work. Nice to know Ryobi basically kept a design that works. It was cheaper than buying an entire new line trimmer, although after 15 years I wouldn't have minded. Buying just the trimmer part did keep the budget-conscious wife happy :-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatility at its Best After almost a month of ownership and usage, I have to say this straight shaft trimmer worked wonders. I had to test it in a 8 - 10 sq. ft. patch of 2-feet high grass on avg. What impressed me was the fact it was not spitting grass and other projectile (specially at my face) during operation - unlike my previous trimmer. Aside from that, from the amount of grass it had to trim down in that patch, aside from the rest of the yard, the the underside of the plastic shield maintained itself relatively clean. The trimmer line, while under operation, was very easy to manipulate its release as well. Very satisfied!!! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Could be better! Although the straight shaft trimmer does an excellent job cutting short grass ( 8 to 10 inches), it tends to, if one is not careful, wrap longer grass around the spool hub and the gear head. I am aware that the instructions call for cutting tall grass from the top down, but certain circumstances do not allow this,e.g. under evergreens. In my case, I have modified the spool by extending the spool hub, with plumbing products, to cover the gear head hub as far as I could go. I still get the wraparound if I become too aggressive in tall grass, but not as often without the mod. Works well. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 3 out of 5 by from This seems to work fine. What irritates me is... This seems to work fine. What irritates me is that I had to buy it at all. The curved shaft which came as part of the trimmer I originally purchased a year ago was utterly useless. I spent about 30 minutes of respooling for every five minutes of actually trimming. The feed out just didn't work and I have NEVER had this sort of issue with the trimmers I used over the past 40 years of being a homeowner. I noticed the spool mechanism is entirely different for the straight shaft, so maybe Ryobi hired and listened to a better engineer this time around.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well Works well with the Ryobi. Recommend using the plastic guard on it. Not sure but I think this design spins the weed whacker head the opposite way from others kicking up debri towards you. So it works well with the plastic guard and you are still able to cut extreme angles with the guard on or you can hold it at an opposite angle than what I am used to using and works as well. Have only used it twice so far. The straight shaft is heavier than their curved shaft design.
