Rated 2 out of 5Â by MininMission Ryobi Power Head
I bought a 4 cycle power head two years ago. Because of the exchange feature. This year couldn't get the thing to start.
Bought a replacement, but, not really satisfied. I already have a trimmer and pruner attachment so I am kind of stuck with this power head.
Difficult to start, but, when running seems to be dependable enough.. String can be an issue.
For a few bucks more, purchase a different brand. Home Depot should do better research on the products that they sell.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Cutworm Versatile Power Head Trimmer
This power head replaces my older 2 cycle one and I have to say it's a big improvement. First no oil to mix. This head also has more torque and drives my edger and tiller attachments better. The deeper sound is also better.
This is a must - Read and Follow the directions for starting and storage. If you do this you will be glad you bought it. I have ran most of my Expand-It attachments and it has performed perfectly on each. The flexibility of this power head and the Expand-It attachments will cover all of you lawn and garden needs. This is a great and very versatile power head.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by newhomeowner I wont buy this again
worked great for the first 6 months , then starting the machine got more and more tiring , couldnt throttle to full cause engine would bog down ,had to keep it about half throttle -trying to find the sweet spot so the engine would run and not bog down is a pain , good luck if ya already purchased this machine , if you have not I would stay away .if your fuel lines start to leak you will have to buy a fuel tank with the hoses installed in the tank with the fuel filter attached .Good luck

On 4/30/2014 I purchased a Ryobi 4-cycle gas powerhead #046396490353 for $149.00. I did so after using a 2 cycle and having it last for less than 2 seasons - twice [two (2) different units). When I bought it I was told that if I bought a âReplacement Plan", #000-979-376, for $18.00 I would be assured that the unit, if it malfunctions, would be replaced.
Turns out little of that is true.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by displeased worst purchase in decades
I purchased the multi head power source with attachments from Home Depot and the power head won't start. it continually fails to start, the head attachments are wonderfully inter-changeable, but the overall power source will not perform. I am incredibly disappointed with my purchase will never buy a Riboi product or tool again. I spent nearly $300 on the power head and attachments and it is truly a piece of unacceptable workmanship. I am so disappointed in the product and performance. I encourage other shopper to purchase any other brand.
