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 - Battery and Charger Not Included is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 2288.
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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not bad for the price, but sure could be better,... Not bad for the price, but sure could be better, this is the third Ryobi we have had and probably the last one. The battery was deflective, makes you wonder about quality control or simple testing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Convenient , fast & easy to use I've only had it 2 weeks , but has proved to be excellent at first few uses and anticipate it to be as good in the future ........We have a small lawn , but with many, many plantings , trees , shrubs and borders .........It has a surprising amount of power and reasonably well balanced , weight-wise ............ I Have been using a 2 cycle gas trimmer which proved up to the job , but compared to the Ryobi it is unwieldy , heavy and a pain to use . The reason I gave "one" Good rating is the only draw back , the size of the line (.080 ) and the way to feed more out . Unless you are on a firm surface it can be difficult to feed out , with some very hard thumping to get the job done . As for the line it is a little thin to take on heavy fibrous weeds and grasses with one pass , but does the job . I've been using a .105 line but I gladly sacrifice the diameter of the line for all convenience this Trimmer provides................ That's my story and I'm stickin' to it !!

I switched from a gas trimmer and while this isn't as powerful, it works just fine. I think a lot of the unhappy reviews are from people expecting the electric trimmer to be as powerful as a gas unit, and the battery's somehow also supposed to last for hours. Come on, people, battery technology isn't there yet. It works great for what it is, an electric adaptable system to various yard tasks. If you have an acre of knee-high grass, no, it's not going to do it in one go. If you're using the hedge trimmer attachment, no, it's not going to cut straight through 1/2" branches like a 2hp gas unit. If you're cutting down an oak tree with the pole saw attachment... seriously? There's a saying, "it's a poor craftsman who blames his tools." I'm happy with it when used as designed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cuts just like a Gas trimmer I started out this morning trying to do some yard work with my old faithful gas trimmer (2cyl Ryobi Expand-it) then got frustrated because it wouldn't start. The trimmer has been giving me some hick-ups now and then and I've been thinking about replacing it with a cordless one. I've been reading reviews and watching videos on this and have seen comparisons between this and other cordless trimmers but not against a gas powered one. I went to Home Depot after the 20th unsuccessful pull on my gas trimmer and purchased this one. This machine performs just as good if not better than my 2cyl Ryobi trimmer. This one is noticeably quieter than the gas powered, is lighter, and lasts longer on a charge versus one tank of gas. The plus for me is that I already have most of the expand-it tools in my garage so I didn't have to buy anything new. This is the perfect addition to any home owner that has gotten tired of fighting with a gas powered machine. No more storing Gas in my garage for me, plus I can wake up early and do yard work without worrying about waking up my neighbors or kids. Great Job Ryobi!!
