Questions & Answers

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

Asked by: Boomer
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.

Cutting head rotation

Which way does the cutting head rotate? I want a trimmer that rotates the way most curved shaft trimmers rotate and I believe that is clock wise.
Asked by: AARPaul
Great question, AARPaul. This string trimmer is designed to turn counterclockwise. I hope this helps and we appreciate your interest in RYOBI! -Keri

Does this trimmer work with the older Ryobi TrimmerPlus attachments?

I have several older attachments for my gas powered Ryobi trimmer and want to make sure they'll work with this newer electric model before buying.
Asked by: Petachi
Yes, I was amazed.

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

On charger? Off of the charger? On the attachment? Should battery be exposed to hot and cold temps in storage shed?
Asked by: DoDa
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

40-Volt Lithium-Ion Cordless Attachment Capable String Trimmer - 2.6 Ah Battery and Charger Included is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 4374.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid power. Great battery life(45 mins of moderate to hard cutting). Well balanced in your hands... Solid power. Great battery life(45 mins of moderate to hard cutting). Well balanced in your hands. Smooth operation with minimal vibration. I have a large yard and this trimmer has plenty of battery on one charge to trim it all. After my first time doing my entire yard I had to run the trimmer an extra 15mins to finish off the battery completely for the first charge. The power is not quite equal to a gas trimmer but the torque is plenty strong. The head speed is slower than a gas trimmer which makes the cutting a little bit slower, but the torque will cut almost anything a gas string trimmer will, just at a little bit slower rate. This slower cutting may add 2-5min to a total yard trim so it's pretty inconsequential. That said I think this is an amazing tool for the money that does a great job and is well thought out. I'm very happy with the purchase and the added ease of use, not needing to keep mixed gas or smell like exhaust when I'm done.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I've been impressed with the capability of the 40V power... I've been impressed with the capability of the 40V power head; it doesn't give up much to the 2-stroke head I've had. My yard is fairly large, and the string trimmer has to deal with St. Augustinegrass, which is very tough stuff.The Expand-It capability was one feature that sold me - I've used the system for years, so now I have the whole set with battery power! I haven't used the trimmer head that comes with the unit - I instead use the older head that I have loaded with some sexy .90 string that lasts longer against the grass.I've used the hedge trimmer attachment, and it is superior to the gas head in handling and portability.I bought the leaf blower for the battery to use as a back-up, and discovered after I got it home that it was 'bigger' than the trimmer battery.My only suggestion is that Ryobi should package the trimmer with the same battery that comes with the leaf blower - a 3.0AH unit. The 2.6AH doesn't quite make it for my whole yard if I get behind and let it get too 'wooly'.

Overall, I really like the product since I do not have to bother with gas and oil and hard starting and all that. The action of the head is excellent as it does the trimming efficiently without any problems. I just bought it and used it once and thought that the actual use time is short compared to the charge time. This interrupts my work schedule to recharge the unit. I am an average sized man but thought that the trimmer is a little heavy with the battery installed than most trimmers. I ended up with a slight sore shoulder. Also, it is a slight bit difficult keeping the two handles closed to keep the trimmer operating. At times, you have to let go for a hand break. I guess I could say that it meets my expectations but I wish it had a longer use time after charging and it was a little lighter. Finally, the bump-feed mechanism did not always work for me. However, I still had enough string out to do the job. The biggest thing is that I hate to stop my work for that long charge.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very convenient I bought this for my new home after a few purchases and returns. I bought the Ryobi hedge trimmer at first and then discovered I needed more tools for the tasks in my yard. I went back to home depot after comparing different tools and discovered the Expand-It series which allows all the tools I needed to be used on one device and it saves money! I love it, my wife loves using it as we have added more attachments to our arsenal. Did a nice job slicing up the weeds in my yard effortlessly. I make sure my battery is charged and to my surprise I really don't need to juice it as much because it holds a charge really well, I just like to take precaution. This is a great product and I highly recommend it. I may end up getting more of the attachments! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light weight but a heavy duty workhorse. I am a 68 year old woman that loves yard work. My husband's yard tools are to heavy or to complicated for me. I don't like having to mix gasoline and oil, the fumes and odors are awfulI and I almost always had to have my husband get it started for me. I have a Black and Decker 18 volt that is ok for small jobs but I needed one with longer running time and the ability to cut taller, thicker growth. We found MY Ryobi trimmer at Home Depot after shopping around. I tested the Kobot, Green Works and STIHL, but decided the Ryobi was exactly what I was looking for. I have had it for a couple of weeks and have used it about 6 or 7 times already. I love it...the only thing I have a problem with is removing the battery, it's difficult to hold down the release button and pull on the battery at the same time..I think it is because I have small hands. Other than that, I believe it is the best yard tool I have ever used!!!! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

This is a nice trimmer with a lot of power (I was moving through blackberries with no problem). It's highly rated in CR (why I bought it) and met my expectations. Run-time was good for me. I'd rate it higher if I could adjust the position of the handle to get it better balanced (I'm not tall or particularly strong). I bought a second unit to have a spare battery because the price difference between the full unit and the battery is minimal. I may not need the 2nd battery in retrospect, but that 2nd unit comes in handy when other people are helping the job. The unit can be disassembled/assembled very quickly, so storage is easy, and it can be tossed into a car in two smaller pieces. It comes with a string winder, which should make replacing string easier- though I have not had to use it yet.
