Customer Questions & Answers

Which attachments work and how many Ah is the battery pack that comes with this kit?

I already have the gas version with attachments but want to switch over to Li-Ion battery power. I'm confused because there seems to be a version that can use BOTH the gas-powered attachments AND the specific cordless attachments. Is this able to use both types of attachments, or does this require the cordless specific attachments? (Will the gas-powered attachments I already have work with this tool?) Secondly, how many Ah is the battery pack that comes with this kit rated? Thanks.
Asked by: MOTO
I have edger and trimmer, but other attachments are available (like a chainsaw). My battery, which came with the set, is 94wh, so I guess it can push about 2 amps for an hour. A stronger battery is available and I'd recommend it. And regardless, hang onto your warrantee; my battery lasted less than a year with vry moderate use.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not very good at all, very hard to reload string and edger does not work, not powerful enough. Mo... Not very good at all, very hard to reload string and edger does not work, not powerful enough. Motor, went bad, took 2 month 2 days to get it fixed. Did not use it much over the winter once or twice after getting it motor fixed. Motor when bad again. Went to see if I could get it fix under warranty, as it was 10 days out of warranty. HD tried to help,,, but RYOBI said NO! Would no buy a RYOBI again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Battery-Powered Edger / Trimmer Will Replace Your Gas-Powered Equipment This trimmer / edger is well built, relatively lightweight and easy to use. The motor provides ample power for trimming thick grass and weeds. The power of the edger attachment was a very pleasant surprise. It took two passes to complete the first edging; adjusting the edger blade to go a bit deeper on the second pass. After that, edging has been a quick single pass. The battery has never gone below 50% after edging / trimming for about 30 minutes in my yard. If you want to do away with multiple gas-powered tools and you have a normal size yard, this tool is the way to go. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from More than enough power I bought this combo on sale for about $200. At the time it was only $20 more than the trimmer alone, so it was a no-brainer for me. After two hard uses, I would recommend this product without hesitation. The battery charges quickly and usually still has about 75% charge after trimming and edging my small yard. I was pleasantly surprised with the power. It bogs down less than my old 2-stroke and is much quieter. It's also noticeably lighter. The best thing about it is that I no longer have any 2-stroke gas/oil mix or maintenance to deal with.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Excellent Trimmer, Edger Attachment falls short. The cordless trimmer is fantastic, could not recommend higher, however the Edger attachment kept stalling in practical use, was not strong enough in heavy st. augustine grass and dirt. Would recommend a stand alone gas edger for power and stability and nice edging. Returned the whole package though I wish I could have just kept the trimmer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Initial Impressions Comparing to Kobalt 40V Trimmer The wife and I are building our first home after living in apartments for years. I am purchasing my first set of lawn care tools ever. I had purchased the Kobalt 40V string trimmer since Lowe's had a sale where you received a free extra battery. There was a lot to be desired from the Kobalt trimmer (i.e. the balance was terrible, handles and grips felt cheap, and there was not enough rubber grip on the handles.) This trimmer has a very unique sound, like a cordless drill crossed with an r/c car or plane. However the dual .080" line and bump feed is exactly what I wanted. I hated the autofeed feature from the Kobalt product and the line on the Kobalt was very thin .065". This product also seems to be of higher quality on the parts than the Kobalt tool. Height is about 5'9" vs. the 6'1"of the Kobalt tool. As a plus the power head has a divot on the back side of the battery to hang on a hook in the garage so it is not on the floor. As for the edger the tool spins the attachment just fine. Once our house is completed I am excited to try this system for real. Initial impressions using it on the small area of grass around the apartment seems like the machine has a good amount of power to cut and manicure the yard. I promptly returned the Kobalt product to Lowe's.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth The price. Powerful enough for my small yard I have a small yard and this trimmer worked well to finish the entire yard. The edger worked great as well. It was easy to assemble but some parts seemed loose or weak.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from More powerful than I thought it would be! It was a little heavier than I expected for a battery operated tool. I'm female, 5'6", 104 pounds and fairly strong for my size but the gas powered weed-whackers tend to be much too heavy, this one was still manageable though and I used it for about 30 minutes straight. My arms were pretty tired after but I am sure the vibration definitely adds to that. It turned out to be more powerful than I expected based on the other reviews and that it is battery operated. I have about an acre of yard and fairly average weeds in general. I also did an overgrown back path and it handled it very well, even with wild raspberries and fairly thick weeds. I'm happy with the purchase and I think it will do well for my needs with the size of my yard and for personal use. It is pretty sturdy so I think it would handle heavier use than I will need.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Excellent Trimmer But... I also have the single string auto fed Ryobi 40v trimmer and I like this one far more. The trimmer does a great job, the battery charges fast and lasts a good while. The trimmer has plenty of power to do anything you ask it to, however, the edger attachment is absolutely terrible. The rubber flap gets in the way and the depth guide causes issues as well. Buy the trimmer but get an edger elsewhere
