Are there a number of attachments. Do they stay secure/safety factor. what is the guarantee on this item. I want to use it for thick bush and small bushes around a 2 acre parcel. If this is not the tool for me, please guide me to one better suited. I really liked the interchangeable idea.

Answer: 
You will have to get the attachment that cuts brush, the cultivator is only good for gardens and grinding up some compost pile material

Answer: 
Yes, there are a lot of attachments, all of which stay secured very safely. After inserting your attachment, be sure to tighten the knob on the left securely and you're in business. A pole saw extension would work well for keeping branches cut back for brush & small trees around on your land, and the hedge trimmer attachment will work like a charm on the bushes & hedges.

There are many attachment options for the universal power heads. I prefer using my Toro because the Ryobi was just to much trouble.

As far as attachments go, we have almost all of them (Ryobi brand). The tiller attachment is really good, the pruner, the edger, string trimmer. All work with the Toro power head as well as the Ryobi. They attach securely too. You need to be sure the locking button is properly in place then tighten the clamp.
If you have a really tough job - Echo is probably the best on the market but expensive and does not have universal options.
Also, while at Home Depot I found a universal 3 blade cutter by Shakespear/
Rhino that I absolutely love using. It takes out saplings and hard weeds like burdocks, brambles and those mystery vines that climb trees. It's easy to assemble and works great.

Answer: 
There are 4 different attachments. I recently had to return one, and home depot was excellent. The warranty is really good. I recommend you purchase the Ryobi Model # RY15800 attachment to cut thicker branches, and the string trimmer for grasses.

Hi, and yes, it will work with "Universal" attachments. All are easily mounted and secure. We have a Ryobi and a Toro Power head. Personally, I prefer the Toro; it's easier to start and it stays running my Husband is happy with the Ryobi. We have a pruner attachment, tiller attachment, string weed eater and edger - all work just fine. Heads up too....if you have loads of really heavy duty work to do - go Read More

We have a pruner attachment, tiller attachment, string weed eater and edger - all work just fine. Heads up too....if you have loads of really heavy duty work to do - go with Echo, but their items are all al la carte - nothing universal with them, but the Echo products really have beef!
Overall, we do just fine with our universal attachments on our 1+ mixed acre in the woods. We cut down wild vines, black berries, and for the heavy duty stuff, like small saplings or really tough weeds like burdock, we also have the Shakespeare Universal 3 blade cutter #it attaches to the string trimmer assembly#. The little 3 blade cutter really charmed me and I use it instead of the bump string trimmer.
Personally, I think you'll be happy with the attachments. You get a wide variety of machinery for very reasonable money that gets the job done. Read Less

Answer: 
There are options I've used for cutting brush like you describe. There's a head that has 4 heavy plastic blades that has worked for me. If you have a large area to clear, I'd recommend buying or renting a walk-behind brush mower rather than any hand-held model.

Answer: 
A lot of trimmers come with attachments. For this one, it is interchangeable and easy to do, even by hand. What I mean by hand is some have screws you obviously can't grip but this one has a larger knob. As for as this power head, I don't recommend this one because of the way you start it. After you prime it, you hold the trigger while pulling the cord. When it starts, it running full throttle. Image Read More

I had another brand that worked great for a couple of years then it just stopped. I used the heck out of it and I had three attachments: trimmer, edger (I recommend for everybody), and a blower. In the end, I don't recommend this model. Read Less

Thank you for your recent inquiry with The Home Depot. I believe it would be best to reach out to the manufacturer for assistance. The manufacturer is Ryobi and their customer service department can be reached at 1-800-525-2579.

Since this unit is available elsewhere (just Google) I'm guessing that Home Depot will get more in, and probably soon. It is the spring season in much of the south and guys just brought these up. I brought it and recommend it highly. Great value. Check out my review.

Rated 2.3 out of 5 by 422 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Piece of garbage, do not buy!!! worst trimmer I have ever bought. I have a Poulan weed eater that is 7 years old and still works great. this Ryobi is garbage. I bought it for the campsite and bought the brush cutter attachment and the string trimmer. used it on 2 separate weekends and now it needs a carburetor. I contacted Ryobi and they told me to call the states for a part and they could ship it in a few weeks. no offer of any warranty or apologies for making a piece of garbage. couldn't tell me where I could find parts in Canada or who could service it. no help at all June 14, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by IT SUCKS DON'T BUY IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! it sucks because it broke in 4 months and i had no other attachment besides the weed eater and i tried to weed eat at my gramma's and it wouldn't start and i wouldn't give up on trying to start it and my guess is i pulled the rip cord at LEAST a hundred times and it STILL wouldn't start and it lost ALL of it's compression and so i threw it in the trash can a few months later and now it's at the dumpdon't buy this, get an Echo or a Toro or a Hitachi those 3 r awesome and the Toro has a full crank commercial grade engine and the other 2 do, too, and the Toro is the way to go if u don't want to waste $250 + tax or up but if u still want a commercial grade trimmer but this rYOBI (lowercase r as u can see) has a lousy engine that lasts under 1 year even if u only use 1 attachment and i didn't use it much because my buisness was much smaller than it is now so my buisness has grown since then so don't buy this power head April 29, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Broken < 1yr I have many Ryobi products, but this one is junk. It is hard to start, the gas lines were loose and leaky, and the engine regularly dies. Now I have 4 attachments and an unreliable power head. I am contemplating a switch to lithium ion, but I am not so sure I trust the Ryobi name anymore. Trying to decide whether it is worth contacting Ryobi customer service... March 24, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Will get a new one soon I've had the Ryobi string trimmer for about ten years. Worked great. The only issue is if you are away for a while then it may need to replace the gas and oil mix. Love this machine August 8, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great I bought this unit about 3 years ago along with the hedge trimmer, blower, and string trimmer attachments. I use them weekly for my 2 yards and for about a year I used them for my landscaping business also use them occasionally at my friends homestead. They work great can be a little harder to start when it is hot but even with old gas it still starts and runs like a champ. I like this product so much I am looking into buying more Ryobi gas powered tools. I am not sure why so many people are giving bad reviews heck I don't even maintain the power head still has the original spark plug and air filter in it. August 12, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Inconsistent Unit works well when it's running. The problem is getting it running. It is difficult to start at the best of times, but after a while become impossible to start. Idling function ceased working a long time ago. Lots of power, when it does run, but I am not interested in woking up to a coronary event to get it going. June 4, 2015
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Not a good value I bought 2 in 3 1/3 years. If you get 2 seasons out of these consider it a bonus. No parts available very sensitive carb and fuel system. In order to get 2 seasons, you really have to know how to completey winterize if it will sit more that 2 months. Ethanol fuel eats the fuel system alive if not used. Better to step up to the Toro for a few bucks. Toro is more power and will last longer. 2 Ryobi machines cost me $200 to get 3 1/2 seasons. Toro machine was $129 for power head and all Ryobi attachments worked with it. Toro cost $129 for 4 years and still going I'm surprised Home Depot even still offers this product January 24, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Broke after 3 uses I was very disappointed to find that some type of gear on the handle was completely shattered only after 3 normal uses. I did buy the edger attachment and used it on 2 occasions and it did work fine. Then on the third use I switched back to the normal weed eater head. Upon switching to the run position on the handle, the motor stops running and you can hear the sound of a million pieces swirling around in the handle. I think this product is not made well enough to handle the edger attachment which is much heavier, resulting in the strain of the gears. Lesson learned. Buy separate weed eater and edger tools.
