Rated 5 out of 5Â by TomJ Light Weight & Lots of Power
I found my Hasqvana 125R Trimmer c/w blade too large and heavy.
After reviewing my options I selected the Riobi Power Head and Trimmer attachment because of size,weight and price. The interchangebale attachments has a great advantage. Primary use is at the cottage.
I followed the gas mixing instructions to the letter, carefully measuring both gas and oil. The starting instructions must also be followed to the letter - as detailed in special "Engine Starting Procedure" sheet included with manual.
Using the above instructions my trimmer started first attempt and every time after both during and between use. I have now used it about six times with great results.
Great power to handle most very tall grasses and weeds. I did get into truble with berry canes - having to replace the trimmer lines. The trimmer line attachment method makes it extremley easy to
Overall a 5 STAR product! Highly recommended for home or cottage use in heavy grass and weeds.

This machine surprised me with the power and with the brush cutter attachment, it made short work of an otherwise big job.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Explorerfl It has a 3 Year Warranty
I've owned two of these. The first one lasted seven years. The piston rod finally snapped so I bought another. I had it two years and it went bad. The repair shop simply sent it back and Ryobi mailed me a new one. It has a three year warranty too. Compared to the Stihl, the price is a bargain and the warranty makes it even more cost effective. Meanwhile, I simply keep using the old attachments with the new power head. Unless all the attachments break and the power head is out of warranty, I won't be switching to the so-called better brand. I'll leave that to the commercial folks who need to earn a living with those power tools.

I have use Ryobi gas powered yard products for quite some time. They are reliable, easy to use, and durable. The power head drive a number of attachments that interchange easily and I have used most of them with this power head. It has plenty of power to drive any of the related attachments. It starts easily when starting instructions ore followed. The only minor problem was that the idle needed to be adjusted from the beginning, but this is a simple adjustment to make. Overall I am pleased with this product and it is a good value for the price.
