Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by stringtocracy Done with the cord!
I have a smaller urban property. I always hated dragging that cord around the yard. Since I already had the Ryobi charger and battery I figured I was all set.
The product arrived on the schedule promised at purchase. The product needed minimal setup.
The trimmer is way better than my old unit and the little swing-out edger tool is great.
It is much nicer experience trimming and edging the yard without that darned cord. The auto line advance works great and I spend way less time dealing with the trimmer line.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Edward Great choice
After moving to a new home with a much larger yard, I decided to replace my 40 year old corded trimmer. My only decision was gas or battery operated and, because I already have an arsonal of Ryobi one plus tools that have performed admirably, the choice was easy. The trimmer was easy to assemble and adjusts quickly for operator height. It is light and well balanced making it very comfortable for the 45 min I need to use it. Once I made sure it was working and feeding line correctly, I replaced the included .065 line with twisted .080. It still feeds line just fine but now lasts much longer and is able to take down light brush and vines easily.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GrumpyOldMan ONE+ 18-Volt Cordless String Trimmer/Edger - Battery and Charger Not Included
Bought it for my son to use while I am running the Ryobi 4 stroke string trimmer. The good thing about the trimmer is it doesn't spin so fast that it embeds your pant legs with grass clippings, which is GREAT! While I was using trimmer I would have to say it does a good job trimming around objects without damaging them. The draw back to this trimmer, actually any trimmer, is the length is too short for me which hurts my back. I am 6'5" just to let you know for reference.
I did not use the edging feature. I use my gas trimmer with the edger attachment for that.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by rmangun Easy to use, works well with power supply
I chose this product because of the power supply (which is integrated into a many other Ryobi tools)

Weed eater and the blower worked better than I expected. Plus the long battery life helped me finish my entire yard, on a single charge.

The basic weed eater with out a battery was very inexpensive, and works great. Battery lasts for a good while and it cuts and rotates to edge almost effortlessly. Good Buy since we already have several batteries form prior purchases.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by amanda Awesome fun to wack the weeds! and convenient with the battery
We have been using Ryobi battery powered tools for years, so it was a no brainer to purchase this weed wacker that uses the same battery as our tools. LOVE IT!!! I now go the extra 10 minutes to finish the lawn edges - use to only do it twice a year because of the hassle of a corded wacker.
BTW, I also bought the battery powered lawn mower. I cannot say enough good things about the ease of use, quiet motor, lightness of the mower making it easy to maneuver. Uses a larger battery, but that is ok. We have a large city lot and it finishes the job on a single charge.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Laret Gets the job done
The trimmer gets the job done. When using the edging option, the shaft has a little flex in it making the effectiveness inconsistent. The battery life lasts a lot longer than my previous trimmer (B & D).
