Does this come with a string cartredge?

I was wondering if I will also need to be string for this right away or if it will come with some to get started?

New line dispensing or manual?

hi, does the string comes out automatically or each time it breaks i have to open the cover and pull it out manually? my old trimmer breaks the like every 5 minutes and i spend more time fixing it than wacking the grass... i saw the trimmers which dispense a piece of new line by pressing a button.
Asked by: alina
You can either dispense more line automatically by pressing the trigger and releasing it for at least two seconds and it will automatically advance at least to the full length, or you can press the line advance button and release it and it will advance about 1/2 inch per press and release cycle, providing that you are pulling out on the string at the same time as you perform a press and release cycle. (Obviously, the manual press and release has to be done when the head is not rotating.) I found with my three trimmers (one new, two used) that the automatic feed went through a lot of line quickly. The two used trimmers actually spun out a spool in about five minutes of operation. As a result, I replaced the spring in the head underneath the spool with a standard click-type ball-point pen spring. This disables the auto line feed so that I use a lot less line. I learned that I have to either listen to the pitch of the weed whip to hear when to advance line or watch how close the head has to approach the weeds/grass being trimmed and advance line when the head is getting too close or I have to take the spool retainer off if the line breaks off too short. If you run your trimmer constant like to trim a small lawn, this may not be the option for you, but if you start and stop the trimmer a lot (lots of trees or posts), this really saves a lot of line. Compared to a Black and Decker string trimmer (my wife's parents own one that continuously feeds and they are a challenge to attempt any repairs due to the centrifugal action of the auto line feed), the auto feed function works much better on these trimmers, and it has the bonus of being easily disabled and re-enabled as desired. Finally, remember that the cutting action of all string trimmers occurs at the outer edge of the rotating string - just like a circular saw. For longest string life, do not hold the trimmer head closely against a tree or a wall. You will just cause the string to wear faster and can girdle a young tree by doing this. Instead, hold the trimmer and approach the tree or wall smoothly until you can see that you are barely making contact.

how much with battery and charger

Asked by: beaneye
The battery will cost about $40 more and the same for a charger.
Answered by: nitwitnetworked
Date published: 2016-08-07

Does this trimmer use a common size string or is it unique to this trimmer?

Asked by: BigAl
nitwitnetworked ''Slightly slimmer .065 instead of .080. I have not tried the thicker version on this model.'' Yes you are right , but fyi , it comes with ''Round'' trimmer line. I was ready to take ours back until I ran across Craftsman Commercial Grade Patented 6 Bladed Shape .065 Trimmer Line and it made all the difference in the world..''Try it , You will like it'' Yes , I had to go to Sears to find a .065 line with some edges on it. That was 2 years ago and hopefully Home Depot carries some too by now , but at the time they only carried edged trim line in the larger diameters . LuckyCB says...''DO NOT ATTEMPT TO USE A LARGER LINE''''The (RPM's) Rotations Per Minute of the trimmer are not fast enough to cut the larger line, and you will experience line feeding issues with the larger line.''. LuckyCB...I will let you know how it works out in the long run...Every since I tried some ''Shakespeare UGLY LINE 0.08-in Trimmer Line '' My wife doesn't want to go back to the smaller 0.065 ! I can not notice any problem with the RPM'S . Maybe it is due to the triangler shape of the UGLY LINE. She says that what use to take her two passes , she can now do in only one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not too bad This is actually a really good trimmer. Got it in a combo pack and have good run time. I have a corner lot with a sidewalk and 30ft driveway (re: a lot of edging), and the larger 2.6mAh battery will typically handle it and trimming around the house/trees/mailbox before needing a fresh battery. It bogs down a bit on large clumps of broad leaf grasses (e.g. monkey grass), and isn't great for brush though it will take down 1/8" tree/bush saplings, but it's a trimmer not a brush cutter. Otherwise, this thing is great for knocking down stuff growing against the fence line, house, etc. It's pretty light and easy to handle. I was also happily surprised with the edging ability given the single cutting string and size (.065). The previous owners of my house hadn't edged in years, so the yard (and dirt) grew over the curb. It took a while, but it was able to cut the roots and knock the dirt off the curb - something my dedicated gas edger couldn't and wasn't meant to do. For all people who say it's bad at edging, you probably need to have a professional service use metal bladed edger to properly edge the yard in the spring, then this trimmer to keep it fresh. Only con is the auto-feed system. It works, but every time you let the motor wind down it will feed line, so I end up having to keep the trimmer running between areas of the yard in order to not waste string. It's also a bit annoying to have to basically stop the motor when you're "in the groove" to get fresh string, especially when you need to do it two-three times because it broke close to the spool. Overall, it's a really good trimmer for the average homeowner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ryobi for the Win My oldest son gave me a Ryobi nail gun, and I bought the charger and several batteries - which meant of course that I just had to acquire more uses for the batteries. (BTB, I LOVE the nail gun - I'm wandering around looking for trim projects.) The string trimmer replaces my electric cord using weed whacker. On my 1/2 acre with just little bits to trim here and there, lugging that 100 ft cord around, making certain I didn't whack it, and then having to roll it up and store it, was getting to be more of a chore than it should have been. The Ryobi makes edging and bits of trimming along our pathways FUN. I keep the charger on a shelf attached to my clothes dryer - very handy. I'm looking forward to MORE Ryobi tools. One of the really neat features is the extendable pole - I'm 5'-10" and most gardening tools make me bend. This is adjustable for my height. Wonderful!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just Love the Trimmer I purchased this trimmer mainly for me - the woman of the house - because I didn't want to wrestle with the gas-powered trimmer. Due to the season, I've only used it a couple of times but so far, just love it. The battery fits very snugly (when we first tried the battery we thought it didn't fit because it is so snug, but it is just the design/newness). There's lots of power, the "goodies" like the swing-down trimmer guard with the rotating shaft and the automatic string feed work great. I have no doubt that it will keep performing up to my standards for as long as I need it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for what it is I bought this trimmer for my 1/4 acre suburban yard after years of using gas trimmers. I was tired of dealing with the hassles of oil/gas mixtures and trying to maintain a good running engine, but I didn't want to deal with extension cords either. Since I already have One+ batteries, this was a logical choice. I opted for this model and not the hybrid since I have plenty of batteries already and don't want to bother with extension cords at all. That saved me ten bucks. The power is adequate for maintenance trimming, but if things get overgrown, it is short on power to tackle tall stuff with any speed. I will usually need two batteries to finish the whole yard, including edging. The flip around feature for edging is nice, but again; if things are overgrown, this thing struggles. Overall, I'm satisfied with the product. It works well and was what I expected. It's not as powerful as gas, but not as much of a hassle either. The auto-feed works well, too. I'm guessing the people who had problems with it didn't read the manual to know how it works.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great tool just what i needed for my yard! First of all, if your yard is a mess with 5-7 foot tall weeds and grass, knock it down first with something more powerful. After that this trimmer does a great job at maintaining it. After my first charge the battery lasted an hour or so. I don't get why people are complaining about the string advance, I love it compared to the B&D feeder which decides on it's own when to spit out string. I usually just leave my finger on the trigger most of the time and waste no string at all. When the string whining gets too high, I just stop and start a couple times to get the string out and resume my work. It's very lightweight. I could see how the safety switch would bother some, but for me it's not much of a problem since I hold my finger on the trigger most of the time. All in all a nice trimmer, in which I got the added bonus of the lightweight blower which will be perfect for blowing leaves out of the gutter.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Works well, but serious battery compartment problems The Ryobi string trimmer has a serious design/quality control problem regarding the battery compartment. The One Plus battery is very difficult to insert and remove from the compartment because of the extremely tight fit. My Ryobi leaf blower and Ryobi Impact drill both work fine with this battery, but the string trimmer is a serious problem. I returned this string trimmer 2 times to Home Depot with this identical problem, each time hoping the replacement would work. Unfortunately this was never the case except for the 3rd trimmer, which was somewhat easier to replace the battery. Nevertheless, my wife could still not replace the battery, because it still requires a significant of effort to remove and replace the battery. Home Depot each time replaced the defective unit no questions asked, giving me a whopping 10 & 15 percent discount for my inconvenience. Ryobi, on the other hand ignored my online feedback on the trimmer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ideal for the small lawn. I purchased this trimmer, because I already possessed the Ryobi Lithium +One hedge trimmer and the Ryobi Lithium + One chain saw. Both of these before mentioned products have exceeded my expectations and I expected nothing less from this one as well. Without the battery and charger it was a very reasonably priced product. In use, it cut soft weeds up to 3/8" and gave sufficient run-time to trim my entire lawn, before the battery ran down. The nature of these Ryobi battery packs is that they just stop with no warning as they use up the charge, so it might be good to have an additional "charged" battery pack ready Being a tallish person, I enjoy the adjustability features, being able to extend the handle to avoid bending over to use.. I can lay the handle flat to get under my stairs and turn the shaft to edge my lawn as well. Changing the string can be a little challenging, as it requires cutting a piece of line approximately 9' long and then wrapping it around the spool. The centrifugal line-feed is a nice feature, however.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from battery sucks I paid about $50 for the trimmer including the Lithium 18 V battery. Battery lasted 1 season (actually drained in the battery charger over the winter).

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Inexpensive reliability As with all my one plus tools it has proven to be great value for the money. Light weight and easy to use for light to moderate trimming jobs.Home cordless power tools have come a long way and ryobi is a great example of an affordable and versatile range of tools that are actually capable of handling small and large jobs while allowing average homeowners to achieve professional results.  [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great string trimmer for the price A very good string trimmer. Does a good job on smaller trimming projects but not as well on large yards since it runs through the battery in about 15 minutes. Light weight and portability of this cordless trimmer are great features since you don't have to drag around extension cord for electric trimmer or mess with adding gas and starting up gasoline model. Just put in a fresh battery, pull the trigger and start trimming. Cuts very well except for heavier growth which takes a little more effort with the smaller trim line and tends to run down the battery. Keep a fully charged spare battery available and you can finish most trimming projects.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from You get what you pay for? I loathe yard work but had to fire yard maintenance crew, so now I'm stuck doing the work when everything is growing and flourishing in this Pacific NW summer (loads of rain and sun). I don't know much about doing yard work, but I don't think a trimmer/edger should stop every 3 - 4 seconds like this one does. I want to return it for a better product, but partner in yard crime thinks it's fine to stop every few seconds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very handy for moderate jobs. Very handy machine. I can trim my entire lawn edge (not a very large lawn) on one battery. Auto line feed works well, but looks pretty light duty when taken apart. Handle is adjustable for both length and rotation, but is not very secure feeling. Time will tell. Battery is difficult to snap out to replace, not smooth in action like my drill. Some adjustment to contacts may fix. Handles and balance are very pleasant.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ease of Use and Light Weight for Cordless I bought this mainly for the nicer lithium battery that came with it. To my surprise the tool worked great and would eat through thick grass. The battery easily lasted 30 plus minutes without flinching. Exceeded my expectations. You might find a better model nowadays, but for the price, you can't pass this up for homeowner projects. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pleased Seems really good, I'm not a real big person and it's light weight and u can adjust the length to fit your needs! You can buy replacement string cartridge's but that's to expensive I think so I just restring mine. Was very easy to restring. I had 3 batteries so that is why I chose the one with the battery not included. You can do a mid size yard with no problem on one battery.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light weight and easy to use The battery seems to last long. For a standard size lot the battery last for quite a while. Only having to start and stop the trimmer to advance the string is much easier than the units that must be bounced. We have had those. Biggest benefit is no cord or gas. Very tall weeds slow the trimmer down. But, it gets through them. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
