Which is the best position to store trimmer when not in use.

Asked by: rednla
This trimmer must be stored in a horizontal position when not in use. DO NOT HANG IT OR STORE IT VERTICALLY AS THE OIL WILL BACK UP INTO THE HEAD AND CAUSE SMOKING. I went through this a couple of years ago with Home Depot, even getting a new engine head. Unfortunately, the manager I talked to at Home Depot had no idea about how to store it. It was only when I talked to a representative from Ryobi that I was informed about the need to store it horizontally. It has operated perfectly since then. Hope this helps.

can this unit be tilted on side and used as trimmer? Some reviews said this will drain oil into chamber & carb ultimately causing failure.
Asked by: HouseofBrapp
No, but it is a on a TrimmerPlus (also know as Expand-IT) attachment system. At the place where you connect the attachments to the power unit, there are three holes the spring loaded "button" can go through. The holes are straight up, 90 degrees right, and 90 degrees left (you can see it in one of the product images). So as some have stated, adjust the trimmer attachment 90 degrees and you will be fine. HAVING SAID THAT: I would invest in the edging attachment. I have been on this attachment system for about 20 years. I just replace the power unit(s). I have six attachments, and they all work great and most of my attachments I have only had to buy once, and most are over 10 years old. Multiple brands use this system, so when it is time to replace the power unit, you usually have some choices. Makes the system very flexible and a lot less expensive over time.

Customer Reviews

4-Cycle 30cc Attachment Capable Straight Shaft Gas Trimmer is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 1957.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful, works well I bought this several weeks ago to cut down tall weeds on a one acre area. I just finished doing it a second time on the regrowth. Total time on the trimmer is about 4 hours, so not a lot of time as far as durability. It has plenty of power to cut down good size tall grass and weeds. Starts very easily every time. I bought this trimmer because it's a 4 cycle engine and I prefer that over 2 cycle. I think they are lower maintenance, easier starting and longer lasting. (Not that I have any proof of that) My only negative with this 4 cycle trimmer is you are supposed to keep the engine part of the trimmer up and horizontal to avoid oil issues. Not a major thing but does require more effort when working on hillsides. Disclosure - I received a request to write a review from Ryobi which I normally would ignore but I do believe this is a very good trimmer. Time will tell if it lasts, but it looks well made [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Serviceable but not Stellar I purchased this powerhead & trimmer 4 years ago along with the edger and blower attachments. It served reasonably well for my intended use. It went through a time when it was extremely cold-blooded at startup. Had it serviced but they couldn't get it to run smooth from a cold start either. I decided to just gimp it along until it died. This summer (2019) it started leaking oil from somewhere. Kept the oil properly filled before each use. Went to start it and the cylinder had seized while sitting for two weeks. So it's done and I won't be replacing it with the same model. I decided to make the move to cordless One+ tools instead. A MAJOR design flaw with this model is the gas tank & cap. The tank vent is a simple cloth filtered hole in the gas cap. The tank is positioned so that during normal operation (unless you are under 5 feet tall), the gas flows to the cap and leaks out the vent. If you use the machine on your right hand side, you will get soaked with gasoline. While doing any maintenance on the engine, gas will leak all over.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great trimmer, horrible manual The motor has several severe limitations the manual does not emphasize, both having to do with the lubrication system. If you hang it up vertically the oil in the tank drains into the combustion chamber and hydrolocks the engine. And secondly, if you overfill the oil tank just slightly, when running and you tilt the trimmer up past the horizontal, oil gets into the engine and thick white smoke will be produced. These limitations should be on a brightly colored card attached to the motor, not some small print in the manual. And finally, if 20-50 oil is recommended, and it should be, but why is 10-30 which is far thinner considered ok. A 20-50 full synthetic oil should be the only oil specified. I like the power of the motor and the ergronomics of the handle and starting is usually easy. Don't care moch for the loud exhaust note, a better muffler would be great.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Smoked after 10 minutes Used this for 10 minutes before it started smoking. I thought I accidentally spilt the engine oil on it and that's all it was so I let it burn off for a few seconds, but it kept smoking. Turned it off, started it again, and it smokrd again. Turned it off again but this time the starter cord wouldn't come out. I returned it thinking it was user error. Came home with the new one and read the directions numerous time to make sure it didn't happen again. I used it once and although it did smoke, I was able to complete my entire yard. I went back to use it again two days later and the same thing happened. It smoked, starter cord wouldn't start, and now I have to drive an hour back to Home Depot and hope they don't give me a hard time about it like they did last time. I purchased this because we are slowly trying to move all our yard equipment over to gas so it's easier. This product has been an utter failure. I would not recommend this at all, which sucks because I have a lot of Ryobi tools and they've been great. We do have a 2 cycle ryobi weed wacker that has been great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great! Powerful, Easy to Start, Light Weight So happy with this purchase. I am ecstatic that Ryobi finally came out with a 4 cycle trimmer! No more mixing gas and oil! I bought this trimmer to replace my Echo SRM 2100. The string trimmer works great and has tons of power, 30 cc! It’s more powerful than my old Echo. I have 17 acres so there’s lots of brush and weeds to keep cut. This string trimmer gets the job done quick. I also have 2 battery powered string trimmers but their power doesn’t come close, as well as multiple mowers, a brush cutter and a tractor. I use multiple tools to get it all done. I really love how easy this trimmer is to start, even when it’s cold. It’s also much lighter to carry than my old Echo. I was also pleased to find out that I can buy additional attachment for it. Most especially, the pole saw attachment which will be my next purchase. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don’t waste your money During the 1st use it began blowing white smoke and running hot. I took it to 2 service centers that said they stopped doing Ryobi gas trimmer service because Ryobi doesn’t pay. I took it to Home Depot for service and they kept it for 72 days and charged me $25. They claimed nothing was wrong. Tried it the 2nd time and it started pouring oil down handle. Took it to the 3rd service center and they have had it for 53 days so far and won’t provide a time that it will be ready. I called Ryobi direct and the customer service rep told me to call them back when the service center has it over 90 days and they might be able to esclate my issue.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really good for the price This is a very powerful trimmer. I was surprised by it's ability to chew through thick weeds. Throttle response is excellent. I will say that if you have had any kind of work done on your shoulders then you would benefit from a make shift strap like me. If is not the lightest trimmer but also not overly bulky. It's easy to carry and balanced well but my shoulder was hurting after awhile using it until I put a strap on the trimmer. next time I used it, I had no problem. I wont buy Ryobi tools but this Ryobi trimmer really surprised me. Maybe I have wrong about them?

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bad model I'm on my 3rd, 4-stroke (Ry obi) weed trimmer. The first one lasted about a year and a half. The second one lasted a month before it seized up......never ran worth a hoot anyway. Home Depot replaced it and today I'm going to give this model one last chance......I have nothing but Ry obi hand tools and have owned several (Ry obi) weed trimmers.....This model is EXTREMELY disappointing.......Excuse the brand name spelling.....this website determined in was profanity.....weird...
