Will this work on a 40 V Roybi Expand It String Trimmer

Asked by: DJT
It will work but is not recommended. The motor is more likely to burn out because of the strain.

Expand-It 8 in. Brush-Cutter Trimmer Attachment is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 190.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A REAL WORKHORSE Used it to help clear brush off of our RC Club's new track expansion project. I have been a Landscape contractor for 40 years and have used many different brands and sizes of weedeater/brushcutters and found this one to be right up there as far as cutting ability. The best part is it fits on a lighter model power head than some making for a less physically stressful experience. Used for about 5 hours first day and did not have typical wrist burn the next day! I would definitely recommend this to anyone including my enemies as they would become friends after using this! Thanks again Ryobi. Been using your stuff for 30 years now and have never been let down! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Initially, I didn't want to spend the extra money on purchasing this attachment. But I was struggling to the weeds and shrubs from my front yard to months. I was wasting a lot of the trimming string and time, because the weeds were so thick that it would continuously cut the line and was struggling so bad, that I would give up half way through, so the job was never completed. With this tool, I was done within an hour's time, with energy to spare to rake up it all up too. Best purchase ever!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tears through the brush! I bought this to clear out a large area of thick prickly bush and it went through it like a hot knife goes through butter. It was easy to use and I love the handle and shoulder strap that came with it. I put those on and they help so much with holding the trimmer. Takes stress off the back and arms. They should have these items come with the trimmer itself. This was well worth the price and I would recommend to anyone who may have to do some brush trimming, even if only once in a while, it is worth it. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good cutter, but lade needs a cutting edge. Just bought this cutter today, and the first thing i noticed is what another reviewer stated; the blade has Zero (0!) Sharpness. Its completly blunt. I tried it for a few minutes and it tries to beat the brush to death instead of cutting it. I took the blade off and put a cutting edge on it with an angle grinder, and presto!, much better! What are these designers thinking? Safety? Thats like putting a lawn mower blade on your mower with a flat edge. It wont cut hot butter. So except for a simple mod, its a pretty good tool. A little pricey, but now it works well enough. Lets see if it holds up.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does The Job I bought this brush cutter after trying a Rhino universal cutting blade (which is plastic with metal on the edges). I put this on a Toro straight cut weed cutter. It attaches easily but I did not use the "J" handle. The blade made quick work out of weeds and shrubs that had a diameter to about two inches. You have to make sure that you can clearly see your cutting area. Stumps, rocks and metal objects will cause damage to the blade. This is a fairly straight forward piece of equipment and does the job.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Expand it Brush Cutter Attachment I bought this to cut some heavy brush. It was a good size area. It took me about 4 hours over 2 days to complete. The brush was really thick. At the end of the job, the blade was completely dull. But I worked it very hard, so I was not disappointed about it. I will need a new blade to use it again, but the attachment performed well and is easy to connect and disconnect from the trimmer base. I used it on a Troy-bilt trimmer base with no issue. It is a good buy.

Does a sensational job. All of my outdoor hand tools are now Ryobi 40 volt systems. No pulling on starter ropes any longer for gas engines. If I could figure a way to convert my ride-on mower to battery, I would, but am a bit away from that type application! Would be pleased to endorse these products at any time if requested or needed.

It has done a job in 2 hours that would have taken me 2 days. It has plenty of power to cut thru thick saw grass and stuborn weeds. I have not used it on wooden brush, I would likely use a chain saw for that. Glad I bought it. and would recommend it for this use. easy to attach to the shaft...be careful!
