Customer Questions & Answers

Will all of my Expand it accesories work with this unit? When I know the answer, then I will decide on the purchase.

I have been using and worn out several of the 2 cycle heads over the years and have no plans to replace my accessories unless I wear them out and yes, that I have also done. I think I have most every Expand It accessory of practical use for the home and garden.
Asked by: Goatroper
If you buy the Ryobi accessories yes. There are other companies that have used Expand it in the description's. Now most of the product's at box stores are made in same factory over sea's they tend to change some dimensions or specs for specific Brand names for copy right's. The current expand it last few years appear to be the same. Now the power heads are way different on the 4 stroke models, than few years ago, when most of the main engine parts are plastic. in a high revving machine that is spinning as much as your car does at low speed. Cars do not rely on plastic in friction surfaces. WHY ? it breaks oh yea!!!! or melt's. But it is cheaper to make and our Bottom line looks better. Now Big Box store's are not aware of some of these problems unless you use feedback. If I WAS BUYING A TRIMMER WOULD BE AMERICAN AND ON SITE REPAIR. OR LIKE ALOT BUY ONE RETURN IT BUY ANOTHER ONE RETURN IT,by then you have $400.00 in time gas and blood pressure med's. other Companies like Stihl have accessories setup's also are more $$ and they can also have lemon's like anything on production line.

Expand-It 4 Cycle 30cc Power Head Trimmer is rated 2.4 out of 5 by 354.

I wrote a poor review earlier because I had a terrible experience with this unit. However the company Ryobi went beyond what they legally had to do and replaced the 4cycle with the 2 cycle. The 2 cycle is my 3rd Ryobi over 20 years and hummms !! If you use the 4 Cycle use it daily before the return to Home Depot date has expired. It is worth the daily use to confirm the unit will operate the way you expect it to. The company I cannot sing the praises loud enough.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT!!!! The only reason I gave this product 1 star is because you can't give it zero stars! I bought this product to replace a 2 stroke trimmer I'd had for 15 years that finally gave up the ghost. It was extremely hard to start right out of the box. I mean I literally had to stand on the unit while I pulled the cord to get it to pull. I figured maybe it was just because it was the first time and it would get better the next time. Nope! It was extremely hard to get started everytime we used it. I'm a renter so I don't have a ton of trimming to do. We used the unit twice last season after I bought it. It was stored over the winter and we used it once this spring. probably less than 5 hours in all on the engine. We went to use it the 4 th time since I purchased it and it wouldn't start, the pull cord was stuck. I changed the spark plug and checked the oil, unstuck the pull cord and still nothing. The oil was full, gas was fresh. I took it into the Ryobi service center and they said there were metal shavings in the oil that I ran it low on oil. I explained how this was impossible that it must be a defective product. they told me I would have to call Ryobi myself and try to get it covered. Long story, short, Ryobi says they can only go by what the repair center is telling them. I can take it to another repair center to see if I can get a second opinion and then maybe they will cover it. I'm totally disgusted with Ryobi customer service. They do not stand behind a product that is so obviously defective. Do not buy this or any Ryobi products. I should have read more of the reviews before purchasing this product. Lesson learned...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best trimmer/Power unit I have used I have had the Ryobi expand-it units since 2011. the original Power head wore out and had issues with old Style carb air filter system but ryobi stood by the product and sent me a replacement. I have the Trimmer,Tiller, Edger, Hedge trimmer and use this thing constantly. Always starts 1-2 pulls seems to be very eonomic on fuel use. Have used tiller for garden some times running it for 2-3 tanks of fuel without stopping other then refueling. I have used many other brands in past all 2 cycle and this 4 cycle is IMHO much easier to start and is much more dependable with minimal maintenance and zero carb tuning [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I purchased a home and didn't want to have all kinds of tools in the garage to work on the yard. ... I purchased a home and didn't want to have all kinds of tools in the garage to work on the yard. I bought the 4cycle because I didn't want to have to mix gas & oil. I've used it all summer working on the yard ...bought the pole saw, string trimmer, hedge trimmer, brush cutter and they all work fine. The only problem I've had is letting a friend use the pole saw....bent the chain and had to replace it. The Power Head was difficult to start at first because I'm short and trying to hold the throttle down while pulling the starting rope was difficult so I got a long piece of velcro to hold the throttle while I pull the great. So far I'm very satisfied with this and the other Expand-it stuff I bought

Rated 3 out of 5 by from After about 2 months ownership I find that about 1 time in 4 or 5 starts it is nearly impossible ... After about 2 months ownership I find that about 1 time in 4 or 5 starts it is nearly impossible to pull the starting cord. Sometimes I have to hold the trimmer down with my foot while pulling the cord. The lower hand grip slowly rotates on the shaft no mater how tight the thumbscrew (common to other trimmer's I've owned). I find the throttle difficult to modulate (also common to other trimmer's I've owned. The housing gets very hot and no matter how I hold it, it still seems to touch my forearm. I'll have to try to add some kind of heat shield during the off-season. I do find that when I can actually pull the start cord it starts easily and transitions from full choke to partial choke to full power quite well. Plenty of power.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great value for the money had all the expand-it tools... 2 cycle unit stopped running after a few years so i decided to try the 4 cycle... no need to mix gas and oil and i'm a lazy american :) ... my house takes 2 hours to trim with a weed wacker... i have 7 rentals that i use this on every other week... i see some bad reviews and i guess with ryobi it might be a hit or miss... but i've only had great experiences with their tools... as for this tool and all other gas tools my only tip is to use 93 octane gas... i had a repair guy tell me this and it seems to keep things running longer and better... he told me not to bother with the additives... just keep using high octane... sometimes you get what you pay for, but sometimes you pay for more than what you get...

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Misleading This does not come with the trimmer or anything, why would you wedge it in with the weed trimmers if it isn't one? I'm got home and realized I have to go back to the store more than likely I'm just going to return this and get something else.
