Will tiller work with 40V Lithium 15" Cordless String Trimmer

Asked by: DennisBennett
I have this for my Ryobi Xpand It 40V cordless and it works GREAT! Granted battery life is reduced from that of string trimming but it has more power to punch through dirt than I really expected.

Will this work attached to a 18 volt Ryobi weed trimmer?

Asked by: Jj
It might physically attach to it but I doubt the 18V model has enough umph to do the job unless you are tilling something really really soft. I am using the 40V power head and it does well.

The tines feel loose and rattle when tilling. Is this normal? If not, how to I tighten them?

Brand new, used for less than five minutes.
Asked by: Diskgolfer
Mine does not feel loose. Did you put the felt washers between the tines when you assembled it?

I decided to spent the $90 for this attachment instead of $350+ for a full blown roto tiller. I don't really roto till much, just some garden beds and other raised beds. Maybe, also a few small gardening projects, so I didn't feel like laying out a lot of money. I wasn't really expecting much for $90, but I can honestly say I was impressed. This attachment is really solidly built. Assembly took about 5 minutes. When I connected it to my Ryobi 2 cycle power head it chewed up my garden beds like going through butter. I also tried it on some packed top soil and again chewed right through it. Can't say anything about clay like soil, since it's not prevelent in my area. I would suggest reading other reviewers opinions that have this soil. The other thing I have to say about this attachment when using it, it can be a bit heavy. After tilling for 10-15 minutes you will probably need to rest you arms for a bit since there are no wheels to support the weight, you are with your arms. So, if you don't have huge areas to till and don't want to lay out big bucks, I think this is a good way to go. For the price of a roto tiller full day rental or two, you can own a pretty decent piece of equipment.

I was able to till up garden and flower bed space from previously unturned ground. It got the job done and while I figured it would work, I was suprised at how well it did work. I would not recommend this tool to anyone with back issues though, it's a really good workout for your arms and back since you are the one stablizing the action as opposed to a traditional tiller. I've gotten quite a bit done on two full charges of my power heads battery, it does seem to drain power faster than the weed eater attachment but that makes sense as it's having to work a lot harder. I would buy this tool again in a heartbeat and am thrilled with it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can do the tough stuff as well as the easy beds I picked this attachment up yesterday to try it out. I read over the reviews and decided to give it a go. I've got about a half-acre of lawn that is in need of some help. Our house was completed last July or so, and we didn't get the irrigation system in until November. I'm in Northeast Texas, so the grass (and weeds!) are starting to come in pretty strong. I've got the Ryobi 40V power head with the weed-eater, edger, and brush cutter attachments already. I've also got the 40v lawnmower as well. I've posted some reviews about the 40v system, and I'll just say I really love it so far! Anyway, I got this attachment to try to dig up some of my Texas clay areas on my lawn to plant some grass seed. All I can say is you better get your big-boy pants on! This thing can dig through some dirt! Seriously, as some reviewers mentioned, if you want to get through some tough soil this thing will do it! You just better be tough enough to hold on for the ride! On the other hand, I did use it in my beds as well where I had a bunch of top-soil and mulch I put down back in the fall. It churns that stuff up easily, so if that's what you are trying to do you don't need to be afraid. My small wife was able to do it with no problems. I've attached a few pictures that don't really tell the story, but it can get through the tough stuff if you are willing to do the work. The picture looking out toward the lake is my first pass through. I raked up all the weeds that had been torn up by the tiller. You can't really tell much has been done, but it really chewed up the dirt. Also, the Ryobi 40v power head has MORE than enough power to run this thing. I can't speak to other power heads but the 40v system can certainly do the job. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

I have a Ryobi Expand-it power unit and have used it for many years with my lawn trimmer and edger, so I thought when I decreased the size of my garden that this unit would be just the ticket. I was wrong, I used it for about an hour before it seized up and I had to take it back to the store. I'm sure it is fine for real light tilling but not so requiring it to work hard on clay soil. The store clerk showed me a unit that much better suited my needs and was less hard on me to move around. This unit is not that light weight when you are trying to use it for any length of time, my forearm began to get tired and sore.

This Expand-It Universal Cultivator String Trimmer attachment was very easy to assemble and only takes a few minutes following the assembly instruction guide. This attachment is a perfect fit on my Expand-It Ryobi model x430 4 Cycle Trimmer. It did a great job cultivating areas in need of new sod for my lawn. The attachment does add some weight to the trimmer head, however it is minimal when on the ground in cultivating mode. I only had this unit about a month and I am totally pleased with all of the options available for taking care of lawn and gardening needs. Kudos to Ryobi for coming up with this attachment, a great money saver over rental of a cultivator for lawn repair.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for Small Garden I bought this with Ryobi 40V powerhead along with the trimmer and edger attachments. I have a newly built house with VERY clay-heavy soil all over the property. My previous attempt to loosen a small patch of front landscape garden with a rake only ended with back pain and embarrassment among neighbors. Once I got the hang of using this cultivator attachment, loosening the dry clay soil was ridiculously easy. Even with the electric powerhead, the tiller didn't hesitate at all (well, except when I got a large rock bound between the tine and the guard...). I'm working on loosening the rest of the backyard soil so that the grass seeds will take for the spring. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Easy instructions for assembly. It attached seamlessly with my Cub Cadet trimmer. The included handle is larger than the one on my trimmer so I recommend using that with the cultivator when in use. My trimmer has plenty of power to rotate the tines. Best use is on soil that is already tilled up or from last years garden. Would not recommend it for starting a new garden on un-tilled soil. I'm looking forward to using this all year to maintain my garden and keep it weed free while not killing my back.
