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.

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

Asked by: Mw
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!

40-Volt X Lithium-Ion Cordless Battery Attachment Capable String Trimmer (Tool Only) is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 1047.
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.

I bought this trimmer after having poor success with a previous Ryobi thinking that maybe the higher price came with a better product. Unfortunately, this was not the case. I don't know what it is with these things, but keeping them stringed always seems to be an issue. You can find how-to videos on YouTube for stringing this particular version correctly, but you will likely STILL have to stop in the middle of jobs to pull the cap off in order to unbind the string. And yes, I bought the Ryobi Premium Spiral .080 line and not some cheap stuff either. Just as with the pre-wound spools on the cheaper models, I still spend WAY too much time disassembling the spool mid-job. Bumping often doesn't release it as it should. While the trimmer itself is sturdy and well constructed, if the spool has to be fussed with all the time, it doesn't matter how nice the product is...

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'.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Falls Short Of Expectations I purchased the 40 Volt string trimmer to replace the Kobalt 40 Volt string trimmer I've been using for about a year from Lowes. The Kobalt trimmer is MUCH better! It's much more powerful, the battery charges very quickly, and it's capable of tearing through just about anything in my yard. I bought the Ryobi to replace it because I wanted to have an entire set of matching yard equipment that I could use one 40 volt battery (Trimmer, Blower, Tree Trimmer, Edger, etc). The Ryobi trimmer seemed powerful when I first assembled it but when I used it in the yard, it lacked the power to do the job well and it took me twice as long to trim my yard as the Kobalt. I gave up and started using the Kobalt trimmer instead. The only thing I don't like about the Kobalt trimmer is that it is too long for someone my height and I'm about 5'8". The Ryobi trimmer fits my height much better. I wish it worked as well as the Kobalt. I might just return the whole lot of Ryobi yard equipment. Very disappointing.

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.

I bought my pole hedger plus additional attachments on May 16th, 2016. Total cost for the hedger and additional attachments with tax was over $200.00. On July 15, 2018 the 40volt battery in it's charger indicated that the battery was defective. I called Ryobi and they said since it was in the 3 yr. warranty period they would be sending me a new battery. On July 18th, of 2019 (one year later) the replacement battery now indicated that it too was defective. I called Ryboi again and they said flat out, sorry the three year warranty is up. I told them that this battery had been replaced by Ryobi just last year (July/2018). Ryobi's representative told me that didn't matter and that there was nothing they could do. Go on the internet and you'll see that Ryobi is having a major problem with their batteries and unfortunately they'll only go so far to take care of the customer. For the record I bought this pole hedger to cut just two large bushes on my property which I do about three to four times a growing season (I live in northern Illinois). Both batteries did not survive approx. two charge and discharge cycles before they failed. Both batteries failed with a short period of time that equals a 100% failure rate. A new battery is nearly $100.00. I will not be putting another $100.00 into this product so consequently I have a $200.00 pile of Ryobi junk sitting in my garage. Ryobi's product failed miserably and so did their customer service.

The battery holds a charge for about an hour of trimming, which is more than I typically need. It is powerful, lightweight, rugged, and the line is tough and doesn't need to be extended often. The manual is worthless, but YouTube videos show you how to replace the line, which is very easy, once you do it the first time. The little ring tool allows for quick spooling of the line. This is the best system of line replacement that I've used. I highly recommend this trimmer.

But after continuously borrowing my dad's gas trimmer, only to find that something on it isn't working, I decided to take the chance.I have not been disappointed. This thing works like a champ. I get at least 45 minutes of run time on the weed whacker and about 30 minutes with the chainsaw attachment.I just bought the 40-volt blower as well. I have a 1/3 acre lot and this tool is more than powerful enough to tackle it.
