Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Oldradioguy2 Works Great with my 40-volt Ryobi weed whacker
I read a review somewhere that said this attachment does not work with the 40-volt Ryobi, dual-line "attachment-capable" weed eater, but mine fit perfectly and within 3 or 4 minutes after opening the box, I was laying waste to all sorts of thorn bushes, small vines, heavy brush, and even small trees (1/2" to 5/8" stalks). And the best part is, after almost an hour of cutting, I had 2 bars left on my battery.
The Ryobi battery system is SO much better than 2-stroke gas. I nicknamed my Ryobi gas-powered expandable weed eater the "Widowmaker" because I almost had a heart attack every time I had to start it. Even my teenage son screamed at it. Eventually, the pull cord broke and I tossed it out. But this electric beast really gets the job done. I have a 1-acre suburban lot with a wooded edge, and the brush keeps trying to creep in and take over. Not anymore.
I've only had this for a week, but it seems to be well-built. It comes with a heavy handle assembly and a new shoulder strap, which I haven't used yet.
The fence in the second photo was covered in vines, thorn bushes, and branches. Naturally, you have to be careful when clearing around a chain-link fence or other metal objects.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sptldman Great on small brush and tall grass.
Had to trim some overgrowth on a hillside at a home my wife was selling. My string line trimmer kept getting tangled up and bogged down in the heavy tall grass. Went to home depot to check out this attatchment and figured it had to be better than the attaatchment I was using. Boy was I right! It installs easily and sounds great when it gets up to speed. It cut through the tall grass and small brush without ever getting clogged. I was very please with the results and the amount of time this device saved me. Was well worth the cost. It's not going to cut down small trees but if you have small brush or tall thick field grass it will take care of it with ease.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Bigfoot3910 Works good but can get clogged
As others have said, the blade is not sharp, but seems to cut just fine for me. I've used it on weeds and saplings up to about 1" in diameter. Tall weeds can sometime get wound up around the head but clears easily. I'm using it with a small Troy-bilt 2 cycle trimmer. Works much better if you get it up to speed and take your time. Swinging it into weeds as you would trimming grass will get it clogged MUCH faster.
Oh, and I've done my share of running into things hiding in the grass - concrete blocks, old tires, etc. while clearing this land - no problems so far.

Excellent product, only available at Home Depot right now, and they have jacked up the price, from what Direct Tools Outlet sold it for.

Works great. Wish I would have done this years ago. Cleared about an acre and a half of saplings and large weeds with no problems

Easy assembly and easy to use. works very well on small brush and sure beats the use of hand trimmers.
