Hey, buccobrad. The Expand-It product line has a lot of flexibility with both our battery and gas powered units. You can use the RYSST44 with the RY40770. Hope this helps.

Will this work with the Stihl Kombisystem KM 94R?

Asked by: bobp
Thank you, Bobp. Stihl is not one of our brands so I can not answer if it will work or not. We only recommend using our products with our power heads versus a different brand.

Expand-It 18 in. Straight Shaft Trimmer Attachment is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 170.
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 Very nice general purpose trimmer Convenient ability to switch from trimmer to edger to blower. The 40 volt Li battery lasts about 80% of the total trimming required around my house. FORTUNATELY, I have a 2nd battery. Don't expect this trimmer to do as well as a gas trimmer however, it does a very good job for it's power and size. Only real CON is the trim line dispensing reel. I have tried wrapping the reload loose then tried it tightly wrapped, full then 1/2 full, still jams regularly. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

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.

It was to replace a "frozen" curved shaft. This is my first ever straight shaft. It took some adjusting to get used to the angle being used to the curved. It seemed like I was stooping over a little more and it added some overall weight to the 4 cycle Troy-bilt weed trimmer. This attachment is heavier than the previous curved shaft. I purchased a third party shoulder strap distribute the weight better. It still seems I'm adjusting to the differences in a straight vs curved shaft. The overall quality seems durable and it loads easily. If you like a straight shaft then you will probably like this one. Depending on how much weed trimming you do double check the weight. if you prefer a lighter shaft then take a look at some other options. Overall I think the product is of good quality.

The automatic string advance works and it is easy to load new line. An extra bonus is that it is straightforward to replace the line spool with a different trimmer head (PivotTrim, etc.) if desired. This is truly a professional grade attachment.

When doing fine trimming around flower beds it can be a bit too powerful and difficult to maneuver. String gets sucked up into spool often. Works great otherwise.
