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 4.0 out of 5.0 by Marv Strong, durable. I do recommand this product
I step in ONE+ line, the trimmer was the logical link. I previously used trimmer from different brand. So I call my self as mildly experienced coddles trimmer user. The power and endurance with 5Ah battery is outstanding. Auto feeding function seems to be problem for many users, as I can see in reviews. I was also a bit curious. But it take just a minutes of use it, now I see it as positive feature.
Only concern was related to manufactured quality standards. The sliding/tilting handle could not be tighten and secured in position. The actual handle was too vide in place, where it does fit to clamp. It take me a tenths of minutes to work the spline down with my scalpel. But this was still easier solution, compare to handle back procedure, as I got mine over the net.
I like this ONE+ idea a lot. I can scrap the wide array of chargers I kept until now.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Firemark Tons better than my old gas powered unit
I purchased this unit to replace a leaky, messy, heavy, and unreliable gas powered unit. It leaked fluids everywhere, was a pain to start, and was not balanced very well. The new battery operated unit is lighter, easier to use, is not messy or leaky, and uses the same battery as my other battery operated tools. I could not be happier with it. I was a little worried about the small diameter trimming string but it does the job well for my small urban yard. If I had a bigger yard I would probably recommend a heavier duty trimmer.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Weedsbegone Best little weed whacker
Use it on a 2 acre lot to trim around trees and steep hills. I have had one for nearly three years and it keeps on ticking. I just bought two more...one for my son and the other as a backup to my older one. My son says it was a great Father's Day gift.....no cords or 2 cycle gas to worry about. He loves the product so much he went out and got the cordless hedge trimmers, also now looking a cordless cir. saw. Other Ryobi products I own are the chainsaw, cir saw and blower. Cordless...the only way to do. I do wish however that the batteries would come down price.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nerdish Repeat buyer
I had my last one for 3 years. It seen lots of use not only weed eating but edging as well. My only complaint is the metal fold-down guide should have been designed to use a replacible plastic protector to keep the guide from being "sanded" down from continual use on the concrete. But otherwise still a great value for the cost. Just as a heads up. The reason for the replacement is that the motor almost burned up. Cheaper to buy a new one than to fix it.

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 3.0 out of 5.0 by ry1712004 Ok for small yards
I live in a townhouse and have a very small yard to cut. Just a few things to trim around. Price was failry good, since it didn't come with battery/charger, but I have plenty of them from other purchases. Assembly was easy. Use is easy. The cons are that there is only one trimmer line that comes out of the head. Therefore it doesn't trim very well. The line is very flimsy so that contributes to its lack of cutting ability. I wish I had bought the better model with two lines. It is barely adequate for my purposes, I suppose.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HappyUser Gas never again!
I really love not having to mess with gas or pull start ever again. I have a small front and back yard for which this trimmer goes the job just fine. Now I already had three batteries and two chargers because of my other tools I own. I can get the yard done with one battery if I pick the right one, which means one of batteries is not as strong as the others. But I never need two fully charged batteries to get the job done. I have also finally used up the trimmer cord that came with the unit. Went to Lowe's bought the right size cord and replace the spol with no issues. I use this unit for simple grass trimming and edging only, works great.
