Is it a push button start?

Asked by JMT November 27, 2020

Answers

It is a safety trigger button that as you press down it powers on and the harder you press, the more power it spins. Stops almost immediately when your finger is off the button.

Can this trimmer be used as an edger to get nice crisp lines at the walkway?

Don't believe the Ryobi specifications!
The box shows 5 year warranty in multiple places. No No No. The Straight Shift Trimmer Attachment shows 3 YEARS WARRANTY in the manual. The battery and charger are 3 years. The only thing in the box that is 5 years is the 40V Power Head, per the included instructions and warranty statement. Also setting the cutting blade for 15", won't give you 15". At best you will get 14". My first Ryobi tool and thus far I intend to return it within the 90 days.

Response from RYOBIOutdoorsNov 17, 2020
Hello, golferguy - Thank you for taking the time to leave a review! When sold individually, the straight shaft attachment has a 3-year limited warranty. However, when it's sold with the power head as a full unit, the 5-year limited warranty is extended to the straight shaft attachment. The battery and the charger do retain their 3-year warranty though. As for the cutting swath, it should actually provide a little more than 15 inches. And we're sorry if you're seeing something different. But we'd be happy to discuss this further. Would you mind sending us an email at reviews@ryobitools.com? RYOBIOutdoorTools

Great Trimmer
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The Ryobi trimmer is light, powerful, and works very well at trimming. We also have a Ryobi blower and shrub trimmer, and they are also light, powerful, and highly effective.

Great String Trimmer!
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Great tool for quick and easy yard trimming. The 40volt battery provides significant power, whacking as many weeds as possible. And you can take the trimmer all around the yard without being inhibited by electrical chords.

Best battery operated trimmer out there
After attempting to use a gas powered trimmer I found the fumes, hassle of starting and noise were a little too much. After using the Ryobi trimmer the first time, I was sold on it!! Very easy to start, battery lasts a long time, the trigger is pressure sensitive, and it is way lighter than gas trimmers. Definitely recommend it!

Difficult to setup, heavy to lift, too long, however very effective for dry brush and light weeds
So I am not very experienced at this. This is my second weed wacker in 30 years after a quiet period of 20 years. This is a very effective and powerful weed wacker in the class of cordless wackers. Especially quite effective on dry brush and light weeds. I zapped through about 1000 square ft of yard space within 50 dis-continuous minutes. And the battery did not even finished although I was "finished". So here is the reason for the last "finished". This is quite heavy to lift and too long for my height which is 5'9'. And my arms are still aching 2 days after doing the work. I picked a very hot part of the day, unfortunately to do all the work, and I was working on a gradient terrain. So this might have added to the inconvenience and exhaustion. However, there are some advantages of the sloping ground. I can stand at the top and wack downwards, thus using gravity to my advantage. Towards the end I could barely keep this monster wacker over the ground. I felt like I have cleared the first chamber of Shaolin, a martial art school in China. I also took a while to set this up. About 2 hours total. I took a while to figure out how to reload the twine as I accidentally removed the wheel and could not put i back on. I then realized after about 45minutes of trying that I had to apply more pressure. You have to fight the tension of the spring and then turn it downwards clockwise much like a rusted vitamin pill box. I almost gave up and felt like returning it back to Home Depot, but I am glad I did not! I took 1.5 hours to charge the battery and fitting the battery was not very hard. It took a while for me to figure out how to connect the power cable to the battery unit. There is a very tiny socket which is not clearly visible. I could snap the charged battery into the wacker fairly easily but the wacker would not start. I tried tightening the two pipes and thought it may not be locked in place. Finally realized that you need to pull the start trigger quite a bit before it starts. This added to a sore hand as you lift the heavy wacker over the slopes, you start losing energy to even press the button. I wish there was a power lock in place, so I do not have to keep adjusting it. The High setting was used more often than the Low. I felt the Low setting is useless. The device is too long. It could have had adjustable height. And the twines are expensive. I spent $24 for 3 additional bundles. Hopefully it lasts for a couple of years. I haven't tried using the other attachments. However I was able to zap through most of the dry brush and small weeds but not large plants and large weeds. I had to manually dig out the large plants. The mudguard works great, and I did not get a single pebble shoot to my feet. The twine however got stuck and refused to come out of the wheel. So I ultimately stopped wacking as I did not want to deal with the wheel again. I have not figured out the trick to make the twine come out on it's own while wacking. However, it does not consume much twine as I feared. The device is shiny and looks very state of the art. This is now the best tool in my gardening arsenal. This might be worth owning despite all adverse comments above. Perhaps most of you are hopefully stronger and taller than me.

So I bought the 40v because my 18v one was on its last leg. I've used Ryobi for about 3 years now and just recently started the 40v line of tools to and I definitely see a difference in power with the string trimmer and a better quality of cut with it also.

I absolutely love this string trimmer! I've had a Ryobi 2cc for 8 years, but I reay just wanted to get away from the gas and oil mixing and pull cranking. I have 3/4 acre yard and this easily handles all the weed eating on one charge. It's awesome! And I love the EZ Reel to reload the string. Best thing ever! I would definitely recommend this product!

I really like it; I didn't know if I would or not. For a 60 year old female, it's a little heavy but I am able to use it for about an hour before I need a break. During my break, I recharge the battery which takes about an hour to an hour and a half. I only use the attachment with the two plastic blades. I am clearing out a ravine in my front yard where the weeds get overwhelming; and so occasionally underneath the weeds will be a stump and when I hit a stump, the tip of the blade breaks off but I am still able to use it. I have yet to have an entire blade break off! Changing a blade is easy; you just line the top up with the arrows which unlocks it. Remove the top, drop a blade in on the post; replace the top; takes maybe 30 seconds. So it's doing what I bought it for and that makes me happy! I'm attaching a photo of what I've cleared so far.
