Cutting head rotation

Great question, AARPaul. This string trimmer is designed to turn counterclockwise. I hope this helps and we appreciate your interest in RYOBI! -Keri

What is the difference between this trimmer and the other cheaper 40v Ryobi Trimmer (Model # RY40210A)?

Asked by Boomer July 5, 2014
10
Answers

This model is expandable meaning that you can purchase other devices to replace the cutting head. The cheaper model wasn't "expandable" and I'm not sure, but I believe that the cheaper model did not have a brushless motor which I consider a real plus.

Does this trimmer work with the older Ryobi TrimmerPlus attachments?

Yes, I was amazed.

Is this 40 volt battery interchangeable with 40 volt self-propelled lawn mower?

Asked by MW September 27, 2017
10
Answers

Hi MW! Yes, this battery will work in the lawn mower. All Ryobi 40V batteries are compatible with Ryobi 40V tools. Thanks for the question!

Bought one of these last night. Ready to get started. Next question is after battery is charged where is best place to store battery?

Asked by DoDa June 11, 2014
10
Answers

Thank you for asking, DoDa. To obtain the longest possible battery life, we suggest removing the battery pack from the charger once it is fully charged and ready for use. For battery pack storage longer than 30 days, store the battery pack where the temperature is below 80°f and away from moisture, store battery packs in a 30%-50% charged condition, and every six months of storage, we recommend charging the battery pack as normal. Great question! I hope this helps. –Keri

how many batteries are included with the unit?

Asked by Al June 17, 2014

Answers

You can buy it with or without battery. Better value to purchase with battery.

Any problems with the string getting stuck on the spool and not unwinding?

Asked by Robbie May 15, 2014
10
Answers

I have had it stuck once, but it was fixed when I took the head apart and put it back together.

Can you use heavier than the recommended 0.08" line?

Asked by jhm591 June 16, 2014
10
Answers

You probably should not...I used .95 LINE on the cheaper model trimmer & worked fine for several uses, but my motor burned out while cutting some heavier brush. Now I wish I had stayed with the .80 line....I loved the trimmer while it lasted, looking to try this X model. It looks a bit more sturdy.

Why in the directions doesn't it tell you how to add new line? Not in the manual. Watched some ...

Asked by Susie December 7, 2017
10
Answers

The instructions leave a lot to be desired. Use a set of pliers to turn the red retainer screw counter-clockwise. Once that's off, you should be able to see how it works.

Can you leave battery plugged into charger?

Asked by kandiman August 26, 2016

Answers

While the chargers do stop charging when the battery is full i would still not leave it on the charger for months at a time.

So pleased!
Customer review from ryobitools.com logo
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Purchased this a few weeks ago. Was not sure how impressed I would be because I had been disappointed by other cordless tools from multiple other companies. To my delight, I was very impressed with what I was able to accomplish in just a few days, only an hour or two each day. I uncovered a brick patio that had been buried under grass, weeds, and soil for some 10-15 years. Also, my attachments from a 15 year old Ryobi 2 stroke weed eater and a Troybuilt 4 stroke weed eater fit.

I Love It!
Customer review from ryobitools.com logo
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This thing has all the power I need. I can trim and edge my whole property in 10 minutes thanks to my new Ryobi trimmer. I didn't want to deal with a gas engine or the oil mixture hassle. Just charge the battery and go to work. Long battery life. Nice and quiet.

I bought one today with the 2.6 battery gave it a full charge and began to use it on simple weeds growing in my side walk cracks and gaps and trimming and edging around my small front lawn. It is under powered worked ok for the first 10 minutes BUT power felt weak my old 18v black and decker had more power than this.Maybe I got a lemon or they are lemons,it is going back to home depot

Amazing performance
Customer review from ryobitools.com logo
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Easy to handle and works amazing. Exactly what I needed to do the work that I’m sure a gas one would but with a lot more maintenance. The lasting power and the power it had to cut made my work day a lot shorter and easier.

Part of a complete System
Customer review from ryobitools.com logo
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have owned my Ryobi 40V string trimmer for about a month & have used it a couple of times. I bought it because it will work with all the other attachments (edger, hedge trimmer, blower, tiller) I already have. It also uses the same battery as my Ryobi 40V lawn mower (which I also love). This system is without doubt the best lawn tool investment I have EVER made! Although this might not work for large properties, with the size lawn I have, it is PERFECT. The battery chargers work better if kept in an area that is climate controlled. I built a charging center by mounting both 40V chargers along with my drill charger & LED flashlight in a convenient all in one area mounted on the laundry room wall.

Had this trimmer for about 3 months now and I am really impressed with the battery life. I have a big front and backyard and I do a lot of trimming and edging. The battery would last me for the trimmer and then I use my 40v Ryobi blower with the same battery and I still have 1 or 2 out of 4 lights on the battery. The battery has an indicator how full the batter is with 4 lights. Its really easy to use and its a great value. Before this trimmer I had a gas trimmer and its not as strong as the gas trimmer but does the job very well around the house.

This product has the power similar to gas-weed eaters. I have 1/2 acre lot and did not run out of battery power. The price point of this product was just right for me. With a 40V battery, you will definitely work on arm muscles you thought you never had.

I am a 62 year young grandmother who really likes this unit, because it isn't too heavy for me, and the battery means no gasoline or electrical cords to haul around. It was easy to use it in many different angles. I have a very small yard, so I used it for both lawn mowing and edging.
