Customer Questions & Answers

Can I use this power head with a 110v extension cord if necessary?

I have a large property. If I run out of battery power can I attach a 110v extension cord and keep going?

WHY is this not recommended with the brush cutter attachment?

If this item is advertised as, "Attachment capable: accepts Ryobi Expand-It attachments and other universal gas attachments to save time, money, and space" ....and the brush cutter is an Expand-it attachment, then why has it repeatedly been stated here that it is not recommended? Which is it, does it work with all the Expand-it attachments and other universal gas attachments or doesn't it? Please explain your logic AND further, if it does not work with it, then the description should be corrected to say ...some or most but not imply all.

is there an apapter for the ryobi ry40030 to fit the ry40002?

I purchased the ry40030 and it doesn't align with the ry40002
Asked by: shitla
No, Shitla. There is no adapter for these models to fit. However, if you are looking for an edger attachment to fit that power head, please feel free to take a look at model RYEDG11.

Expand-It 40-Volt Lithium-Ion Cordless Attachment Capable Trimmer Power Head is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 51.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn't fit Purchased this to replace the 40 volt power head for Ryobi RY40001 string trimmer. After 3 years, the original power head failed, a big deal for me since the power head also powered my Ryobi hedge trimmer and pole saw attachments. Trouble is, Ryobi redesigned the head connector, which no longer fit my existing system. Had the connectors been compatible, I might be writing a different review, but there IS a compatibility issue, and now I am out several hundred dollars with several obsolete, unuseable tools in my garage. Obsolete after 3 years! Come on!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from THE way to go! No gas, no oil, no leaks, no smoke, no tether, no pollution, no (repeat) NO lack of power. I use this with the Ryobi brush cutter attachment. It shuts off automatically if you encounter a jam yet can continue seconds later once the unit is clear. The unit is not as light as I would like but it is no worse than a comparable gas powered tool. The next lawn & garden tool I get will be an attachment to this. Also, best for the money. THE way to go!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile and Space-Saving I have several attachments that I use with this power head: blower, pole saw, trimmer, and tiller. I used the tiller to prepare the base for a patio that I laid, and the tool performed flawlessly. I use the blower regularly for blowing leaves and yard debris. One tool with several detachable attachments saves a lot of space in my garage and tool shed. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No gas hassles Due to infrequent use the 2-stroke gas powered unit I had would suffer from stale gas, that is, starting problems. I bought this 40 volt power head and it has ample power to run my tiller in heavy soil, a 75 square foot area was tilled with more than 75% power left. Lawn edger and string trimmer also work well.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from worst experience with a product ordered I have ever had never got to use the power head because whom ever sent me the wrong attachments or vice versa. After spending hours trying to figure out why the attachments would not fit the power head someone noticed each was from a different series. A home depot employee and myself then hit the hD floor to find the right matches either in stock or ability to order what was so needed. It was futile, employee and myself gave up in total disgust. I return everything.

Home Depot doesn't advertise this, but a visit to the Ryobi website reveals that this power head does NOT work with all Ryobi Expand-It attachments - only the five light-duty attachments. With the hedge trimmer attachment, the motor often seizes on my laurel hedge. Very disappointed, but since I discovered this after the 90-day return period, I'm out $150.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good alternative to gas power around the property I have gone through many gas powered head units for the expand-it system by Ryobi over the years and just wanted to try something different. I have older attachments (6-8 years old) and they have worked fine (string trimmer, edger, chain saw and hedge trimmer). Time will tell how long the battery lives, but it is definitely less hassle than the gas powered unit

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome tool I received this for Christmas from my kids. So far the blower attachment is the only one I have been able to use and it is amazing! Hope the string trimmer is just as good. No more mixing gas and oil and having to keep them in tune. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
