Customer Questions & Answers

Why does my Ryobi power head run great with the blade edger but constantly die with the line trimmer?

It's as if I have two completely different machines. I suspect the attachments add different pulls on the engine, but I need a solution. I can edge all the sidewalks and curbs on my large corner lot with one start when the blade is attached, but then I put on the line trimmer and I can't move two feet without it sputtering to a halt. And I'm using the same fuel, same start process, same setting, same hold.
Asked by: jefton
I have had a Ryobi trimmer for over 20yrs and mine started doing that not long after I got it. What I found going on with mine was that the carburetor needs to be adjusted periodically and it needs to be done when the trimmer attachment is being used. Once that has been done it will run fine with either one. Kind of a pain but doing the adjustment has kept mine going for over 20 yrs. It was still brand new when it started. I tried to take it back to Home Depot and the guy just showed me how to do it.

I have a problem to start my 1 year old unit which was fine last year.

Last year I used this unit mostly for trimming. After winter time I can't start it. Everything seems good: fuel line, electric line. I followed instructions provided on unit but all my attempts failed. Last year I had no problem.

These carburetors don't like gas left in them over the winter. The additives in the gas crystallizes in the tiny little ports and there is no way to clean it out. you can buy replacement carbs for little $$. They should tell people in the information section to remove all fuel before storing for the winter and run the unit until the carb runs out of gas. This solves the problem.

Is it durable?

Asked by: Cesar
I'm going to go with YES... we are using this powerhead quite frequently and without a break with the chainsaw attachment. We are cutting limbs and brush away from an abandoned house. It works very well. You have to be sure to keep the chain tight and lubricated.

does the Expand-it 25 cc 2-Cycle Full Crank Gas Power Head have an air filter

Asked by: roger
It has a small sponge underneath the side cover (release it by pressing on the two tabs) that functions as an air cleaner.

I have purchased two of these Ryobi gas power heads in the past 15 years and got a lot of rough usage out of them without any problems. When they wear out I buy another one. Last month I bought one to replace my old one. I took it out of the box and it started right up. The next time I tried to start it the rope pulley was disconnected inside the motor. So back to Home Depot to replace it. I took the new one out of the box and it started right up but then it stopped. After about 8 times of trying to get it to run I took it back to Home Depot. I will give this third one a chance and if it doesn't run I will try a Stihl. What happened to Ryobi ? They used to be so durable.

We purchased the power head as a replacement for the original, which was worked to the limit by the yard man. He was very pleased to start all over again with this one....our yard is huge with many challenges....perhaps we should have settled on a higher-powered system to begin with; however, the performance is fine, and if you have an "average" yard, this set-up will definitely work extremely well for you. Very nice product at a reasonable price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Second one I bought one last year that never ran at anything beyond half choke since the day I bought it. Pulled it out after sitting all winter and couldn't get it to start. Replaced plug, no go. Rebuilt carb, still nothing. Gave up and went and bought a new one, since I couldn't find my receipt (no reflection on Ryobi or home depot). Started and ran first pull and works at no choke and sounds ten times better than the first one. Guess the first was just a lemon. For the price, I got a full year out of a lemon, so I'm not too displeased. Runs a weed eater attachment, edger, shrub trimmer and a blower with no issues. I suppose the true test will be next spring after it sits all winter to decide if I am truly happy.
