Can the empty spools be rewound instead of purchasing new spools?

And, why is the trimmer advertised as a 40-volt when it comes with a 1.5 volt battery?
Asked by: keyboards49
Yes I buy string and rewind the spool myself. Saves lots of money. Just make sure you get ,80 string.

40-Volt Lithium-Ion Cordless String Trimmer - 1.5 Ah Battery and Charger Included is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 2942.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Decision ever I bought my Ryobi trimmer about three weeks ago now and it was the best decision I ever made. I was a true believer that the only way to go was to have gas everything, but this 40v trimmer is so light I can pick it up with my pinky finger. It cuts through even tough bahaia grass, and if you live down south you know how much of a task that is. It feeds automatically, I dont even have to bump the head or play around with those stupid "feed it through the little hole" things which is a pain in the neck. The battery lasts all day and I dont have to keep refilling the gas tank (because there isnt one, woooohooo, no smelly mess), and Im not tripping over electrical cords or trying to pull them under or over or through things to move on down the house. I absolutely love this thing. BEST DECISION EVER!!!! Ryobi knocked it out of the park. Thanks Guys for making my lawn maintenance fun again. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great cordless works no smell. This is the third trimmer that I have owned. The no smell. starts right away transport in any car works great. The hedge trimmer, edger, tree branch chain saw are also great. I own and use the tools often wonderful same battery and handle just un plug and plug in. Move to next project. The leaf blower 40 volt is also great. Powerful and works. I use the blower on light snow it moves it nicely. I would indeed suggest to all looking at the gas machines? That r hard to start. And smell and smoke and loud. Look at the Ryobi 40 volt system. Keep in mind also you’re yard size and maybe where else can u use the 40 volt system. The next ryobi product I really want is the 40 volt chain saw. The reason for 3 trimmers. I use my tools more than most. Plus get to have a nice 40 volt battery’s There a s on that. Have fun working the yard. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

I have a 1/3 of an acre lot that includes the following for trimming: chain link fence around backyard, 25' x 40' basketball court and several trees...plenty of trimming. Trimmed everything and then tossed the battery on the blower and blew my sidewalk, driveway and basketball court with battery left. Will take some getting used to not having the full power of a gas trimmer but it did just fine, had no issue trimming tall grass. Same with blower, I've had a gas blower but this blower has more than enough power to get the job done. Super nice just tossing a battery on and not priming and starting and choking and starting and then 1/2 choke...you know the drill! Went ahead and ordered the hedge trimmer while it was on sale for $99 including a battery and it didn't disappoint either, buzzes right through the bushes I've trimmed. Keep in mind this is all after one use.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from On the fence ... I'm on the fence about this product. I ordered this unit online, and when it arrived, there was some cosmetic damage to the power head, which resulted from what I consider poor packaging. Home Depot offered a 10% refund, but I had to agree to taking the unit "As-is", meaning that all warranty would be void. Glad I didn't do that, because after two uses, the battery stopped working. When it was placed in the charging station, the battery flashed red/green indicating a malfunction. I double checked that it was the battery by cross testing with another battery and charger. As for the unit itself, it worked very well the couple of times that I used it. So, functionally, it seems like a great product. I'm just disappointed to receive a damaged unit, and then to have a battery fail. After all, part of the reason to go to the battery operated model is to avoid having a gas motor that is prone to failure. I figured the battery pack would be the most reliable part of the unit. I am sadly mistaken.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight Super Power Ryobi continues to take cordless and battery run equipment to a New Level. I was not really confident that anything running on a battery could out perform gas but have been pleasantly surprised. I like not having to deal with the noise and gas making it the better choice. This 40-Volt Lithium-Ion String Trimmer is great for the urban life and ready at a moments notice. It does require assembly but everything was included except a Phillips Screwdriver. It is lightweight, easy to use and trimmed all the dead foliage in our front yard in a few seconds. The design makes it easy to operate, the battery snaps in place, the handle covering provides added comfort, easily adjust the speed with the trigger switch located under the handle. Just increase the pressure by depressing the switch with your index finger. As with any equipment, completely read the manual and understand all the features, wear protective gear and trim away. Highly Recommend this Lightweight, Powerful Trimmer!

For routine maintenance the trimmer is fine. If you have heavy growth or if you don't do regular weekly maintenance, I would strongly advise going with a gas model. I use my trimmer to edge my sidewalk and while the unit works, it doesn't plow through the edge like a basic gas model. I used to own a small lawn service and over the years moved from commercial equipment to homeowner equipment. A few years ago I wouldnt have used the word 'cordless' but im only doing my 1/2 acre property and I went through a basic gas trimmer and blower so I needed to replace them. I've read decent reviews on them so I gave it a try. In the end, I wish I had gone gas. Longevity of the units is still in question. I am curious if this unit will last 4years outlasting a $100 gas model.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I chose this trimmer for 40V to power through weed clumps, not have to mess with gas fuel system ... I chose this trimmer for 40V to power through weed clumps, not have to mess with gas fuel system rotting from MBTE and shaft was advertised as just barely long enough for average height male. I was not disappointed in these concerns; turned out just fine. What I could not have known is automatic line feeder feeds out EVERY TIME YOU SQUEEZE THE TRIGGER. I can go through a lot of line fast; wish it had the old-fashion tap-for-line. Another thing I could not have known is that the 1.5 AH capacity is not enough to do a 0.25 acre lot. Fully discharged not quite fully through trim. I have to MOVE REALLY FAST to make it with one charge. The trigger advertises variable speed but truth is basically FULL ON or BARELY TURNING. Mixed review. Somethings good and some things bad. I will say recommend BUT BEWARE FOR YOUR NEEDS.
