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.

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.

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.

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

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.

Expand-It 2-Cycle 26 cc Trimmer Power Head is rated 2.3 out of 5 by 424.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good once carb adjusted When I first purchased this power head it had little power and did not like the throttle wide opened. I would have returned it had I not tossed the box it came in. Sounded like not getting enough fuel. I adjusted the the carb (I'm an auto technician). Now runs great. Factory adjustments should have never passed Ryobi's QC. Ryobi has done well for low level non comercial use tooling. I own many of their products along with Bosch (which is a superior product with a price). Unfortunately I would not recommend this power head right now to users who don’t want to make any adjustments straight out the box (they should not need too).

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't buy One word sums up this trimmer GARBAGE. Needed to replace my old Ryobi so I went to HD and picked a new Ryobi up. It would not stay running, took it back and exchanged it for the same model. Second one ran like a champ after two times using it. On the third time using it, it would not start no matter how many times I tried to pull it. Started my troubleshooting it had good spark and was getting fuel but would not start. I'm taking this one back also and getting a different brand. I purchased my first Ryobi and used it for 8 years guess this is what happens when you outsource to China, good brand names become junk. Won't buy another Ryobi anything again.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not good out of the box, but great after adjusting Out of the box the product worked for a little while and quickly became hard to start and would die if I gave it some gas. I was very frustrated with it - cleaned the carb, replaced the plastic pipes, filter and bulb with a kit, still no luck. This part is important- I was able to fix it by doing 2 things, 1: I had to adjust the hidden "high speed" ad "idle" screws. You can google this. I actually tapped them with a hacksaw so a normal screw driver could turn them. 2: I found the screws over the metal plate behind the actual motor would become loose which wouldn't allow for proper compression. I put some tacky glue (most prefer loctite) on the screws and tightened them down. With these 2 adjustments, the motor starts one the first or second pull and NEVER gives up. I think it's a tragic shame Ryobi released something which requires tuning after it's broken in, but I felt it was necessary for someone to post the method of correcting the problem.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good product but some issues bought this to replace my old powerhead which finally gave up the ghost. Power is good, does a fine job. I use the string trimmer, brush cutter for bigger jobs and the tiller for small spaces. Sometimes a little balky to start, the idle is factory set too low and it's a real danger starting with the tiller attachment unless you use some kind of support to keep the tines off the ground. Air filter cover continues to fall off in normal use, needs a screw to attach rather than the plastic tabs. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 2 out of 5 by from 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

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Headache right out of the box Took it home and would only run if on 1/2 choke. Took it back and got a replacement. Due to bad choke lever placement kept choking out the engine when lever rubbed against my hip. Put a hook & spring on to hold the choke open. After 2 months the tension screw that holds the attachments stripped out and had to replace it with a hardened bolt & nut. At about 6 months the throttle cable slipped out of position and engine would only run at 1/2 speed. Had to wire the cable into place with wire ties because the plastic handle would not hold it in place any more. At about 1 year the fuel lines split and had to be replaced. At about 2 yrs. the drive shaft stripped out and would no longer run the attachments. Donated it to the waste disposal people this past week.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Biggest piece of excerement I had an older Ryobi power head that had a larger engine, which lasted me for ten years, so I couldn't complain. I purchased this as a replacement last season. Hard to start from the get go, but it would eventually start. This season, however, (and I drain all my power equipment of gas at the end of the season) I have used it maybe 5-6 times, although I cut probably 15 times already. the reason I didn't use it is I couldn't get it started. It won't start now because I threw it over the fence and it landed in the street, shattering, due to my frustration with this Junk Oh, it's underpowered too. Time to buy a new quality head. Thanks for nothing Ryobi.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from A pain to start ... if you ever get it started It's amazing in the year 2012 that no one can create an internal combustion engine that starts easily. I bought a replacement power head this morning at HD, and inside the box was a used one. I went back to the store to exchange it for a new one. Upon getting it home, filling it with gas, it would not start ... there was no spark, nothing. Now I have to head back again for a third one. The problem with this setup is once you have the accessories you need, you are locked into their substandard head design.
