Answers

Yes, the single trigger model will wok upside down (mine does), but it’s a bit moot as the unit has three indexing holes at the attachment point that allows the accessory to be rotated 90 & 180 degrees from normal.

I hear your arm gets burned or really hot due to the design and location if the battery or motor. Is this true.

I never had even the slightest issue along those lines. I just edged and cut for like 45 continuous minutes and there was no heat anywhere near high enough to be burned on.

what is the serated blade option

Asked by panda20 April 12, 2020

Answers

I stocked up on the serated blades and they worked GREAT for eliminating some old pampas grass trunk remnants, shaving them down to the ground. However, make sure you consider those blades disposable as they do eventually "whittle down" shorter during heavy duty use.

Is there a shoulder strap available for this and, if not, would it be possible to attach a third party strap?

Asked by Samson May 28, 2020
7
Answers

I have a shoulder strap from the cultivator attachment from the old Ryobi 990r gas powered trimmer. Since there is no way to attach a strap to this trimmer head, I used the mount from the old trimmer power head on this new power head. I know this isn’t a solution for most folks, but maybe it will give someone an idea. This mount can be positioned anywhere on the drive tube to suit the operator’s size/preference.

Asked by ToireS March 23, 2020

Answers

Technically, that is true. However, you will probably not see the difference if you charge to 100%. Lithium batteries lose capacity (run time) every time they go through a charge/discharge cycle, and lose less capacity when the difference between charge and discharge levels is less. I have seen studies that show a battery reaches 85% original capacity (I.e., run time) after 4500 charge cycles when it is charged to 85% after being discharged to 25%, but reaches about 77.5% original capacity if the charge level is 100% after being discharged to 25% level. How long will it take you to charge/discharge 4500 times? After about 300 cycles, the battery is at about 95% original run time if you charge to 85% and about 93% if you charge to 100%. Here is the graph that shows where the data comes from. (SoC means "State of Charge"). I don't know why your experience is so poor. I've had several lithium batteries last for years and are still quite good.

I have 2 older ones, which are NOT brushless and they have the top and bottom lever. My new one is a brushless and it way better, so much more power, and it has the single trigger on the bottom with trigger safety on it, like the one you are talking about. If you paid for the non-brushless unit and got a brushless unit, it is a win!

Merry Christmas to me!!!
Customer review from ryobitools.com logo
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Wife got me this for Christmas! I have been talking about it for months. I am so excited to use this in the spring. I can't wait! I love that it is battery powered. No more gas for this guy! And with the 40V battery, that should be plenty to get all the trimming done that I need. Also, I am excited to eventually get other attachments as well.

I have been very happy with this machine. The battery lasts a long time which is good because we have a large, in town property with a lot to trim. The trimmer head that comes with it is easy to use and takes the larger string which is good for cutting through the largest grasses. It also comes with a cutter blade head which works great for cutting through larger brush (tree starts). Changing the attachments is super easy. Just line it up and tighten the handle. The only complaint is that the round handle does seem to move around a bit regardless of how much I tighten it. Of course, I don’t want to overtighten it and break it as it’s plastic. It comes with a charger and the battery charges fast considering the size. We also picked up a second battery so that I can use this for a long time without running out of a charge. Overall, I’m happy with this machine and look forward to picking up a few more attachments to make the system even more useful for my yard.

Customer review from ryobitools.com logo
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I bought this yesterday and so far it's been really easy to handle. I've always used gas trimmers/weedeaters but with my bum arm I've struggled to turn them on. Now it's a breeze.

Just buy it !! This is the combo you need !!
Customer review from ryobitools.com logo
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I've reviewed and tried several other models over time and this Ryobi Brushless combo is very powerful, dependable and is just a great set of tools. You can spend more on higher voltage products but this one will perform better, last longer and is very versatile. You can't go wrong with this combo and I thought I'd need a second battery for a backup but even with my 2/3 acre property and a lot of brush to cut down I couldn't get the battery to run down. Bonus with this combo is the plastic weed cutting blades.. this will simply take your most challenging brush down with ease... and it's fun!! Ryobi makes a great set of tools and I am so happy that they released the 40v Brushless model.. makes a HUGE difference in my chore list.
