              Q:What is "bump feed" and replenshing the trimmer string is difficult or better to add pre loaded string to save time and headaches, is this weed cutter good or a pretender or contender?
              by|Nov 27, 2022
              5 Answers
              Answer This Question

              A:  This string system requires you to "Bump" the button on the bottom of the head to release more string at your choosing. This way you can control the amount of string you are using. I feel it is superior to "Auto" systems of other models I have used. To refill this trimmer is MUCH easier than other models. Rather than disassemble the head, wind cord and try to wrangle it back in. These models have you line up arrows on the head. Then cut a length of line about 6' and thread it through the hole till both ends are even. All you have to do after that is use a tool to wind the head and it will automatically pull the string in and coil it in the head for use. As for performance, with the 4.0 battery I would rate it excellent for basic yard maintenance for a single family home of small to moderate size. With the ability to add different heads to the unit it extends its usability exponentially. I personally have an edger, limb trimmer, brush blade, and am looking to add a hedge blade as well. If you happen to have other 40V tools then those batteries will work with this system as well. I have personally moved from gas equipment to almost ALL Ryobi 40V systems with the exception of my one 16" Stihl chainsaw for tree felling. However my father owns the 14" 40V saw and I must admit it is also a purchase I am looking to in the future.

                  A:  Hello, Thomas261 - Thank you for your question. Bump feed trimmers mean you lightly bump the trimmer on the ground for the line to come out.

                    A:  I have a 3.6 acre lot farm fence on one end little creek on one side. One charge on battery is enough. Unless I wait to long like closer to 4 weeks to do trimming Then I need two batteries. I got rid of my gas trimmer because I like this one so much better. Lot of power around little trees so be careful. I do the line feed myself I cut about 6 feet and wind it in

                      A:  The bump head allows you to "bump" the head of the trimmer on the ground while holding the throttle open which advances the line. Replacing the line is a simple process which entails lining up the marks on the head and the spool and feeding the line through until centered then winding it onto the head. I use the bulk line since I use quite a bit of line during the season and it is cheaper that way. If you prefer the convenience of the pre-cut trimmer line that works fine as well. Overall this is a very good trimmer. It cuts well, the run time is such that I can trim and edge an acre lot a couple of times before I have to recharge. It is well worth the money.

                        Great trimmer, love the brush-clearing head!
                        Only took about 20 minutes to clear out an overgrown area I had neglected too long, only used about half of the battery charge. I prefer using LOW speed since high speed only seems to drain the battery quickly, spinning faster than needed and wasting juice. I bought this due to the good reviews, plus the numerous attachments available. I bought the high-speed charger separately that fully recharges in 20 minutes instead of a couple hours for the cheap charger supplied with the unit.

                          Best investment in lawn equipment.
                          I decided to go electric this spring after fighting with my nearly 20 year old trimmer and edger. I knew I wanted brushless and knew once I chose a brand that I would be committed to it. I cut my lawn, my neighbor's lawn and about 1/2 acre of the common area behind our houses. So far I like these tools, I have the pole saw and edger attachments. I would recommend them without hesitation.

                            Great trimmer for my large yard
                            Trimmer has replaced my Stihl model FS55R. With a wink and a nod I could get it to start. Now life is much easier. The Ryobi was easy to assemble. Battery charge was smooth, and I was off to work. The lightweight carbon shaft and balanced unit worked well right out of the box. With a smooth throttle level, and a two level switch for higher speeds, it made for reliable and simple trmming. and as and electric trmmer, I could turn on and off to pick up twigs and get back to work. The ability to add string was simple as well. The tool provided makes it simple to load more line, simply install the end of the line, us the spooling tool to wind the line, then install the cap, done. It will be a nice addition to the other tools in my Ryobi Line up including a Mower, chain saw, and blower, which have all proven reliable, quiet, and easy to use.

                              A great add-on for my Ryobi Expand-it capable trimmer
                              Ryobi came out with the tool I have been looking for, a GOOD trimmer AND edger for my lawn. The Expand-it add-on edger attachment works wonderfully and gives my lawn that professionally manicured look - where string-timmer edging seems to fail. It was simple to attach after taking off the trimmer head. The Expand-it connection allows for 3 different positions around the pole for the right ergonomics of use. The durable blade does a great job trimming the edging as well as creating a good edging groove in the ground.

                              Don't waste your money
                              This attachment does absolutely nothing in terms of sharp edging. The blade is extremely dull and does not cut the grass cleanly at all. I might as well have had my three year old use her scissors to cut my lawn. It's completely butchered the line of yard. You have to dig in the blade so far into the soil to cut that it pulls up all your soil and your left with a messy cut. Very disappointed and will not be buying this brand again. Even the brand new weed eater I just bought for $200 sucks.

                                  Battery is different shape from EVERY other 40v Ryobi. Doesn't work in some tools with vertical 'pocket'
                                  The battery doesn't work on all 40v Ryobi tools. It's a different shape!! -- I have a 40v chainsaw (RY40502) that I needed another battery for. Since my gas trimmer was on it's last leg, I decided to buy this trimmer kit (RY40270VNM) and get the trimmer and a charger for only $40 more than the 4ah battery they sell separately. I put the trimmer to use and was satisfied. I went to use the chainsaw a few days later and the battery won't fit!! Yes, it's very close, but I would have to dremel about 1/8" off the top corners (or the 'top' inside corners of the vertical battery pocket) to make it fit! This makes NO sense Ryobi. Why manufacture two different 4ah/144wh batteries of the same physical dimensions, but with a different profile? (Unless it's to increase your bottom line when people realize they have to buy batteries separately in the end after-all. This appears to be a shameless, time-delayed money grab...) -- This is NOT a case of me being confused about Ryobi's recently released larger (and some mid-size) capacity batteries that have a taller chassis. The chassis on the battery in this kit (OP40404), is the same height as the previous battery for the chainsaw (OP40401). The difference is the profile/shape. See the attached image. (Or compare the pictures from this very ad to the OP40401 to see what I mean.) The top is wider, which pushes the top corners outwards, keeping them from fitting in the nicely rounded corners of Ryobi's standard vertical battery pocket. It would have been SO easy for Ryobi to avoid this by simply including the 4AH battery they sell separately. Why make two versions? -- Buyer beware! If you have the nerve to assume the 40v battery in this kit will work with 40v Ryobi tools that have a vertical battery 'pocket' for standard 4ah batteries, you'll be wrong.

                                    My Ryobi weed eater does a good job edging, but using this attachment is much quicker. I have mastered edging with it using just my right arm so I can walk straight ahead and fully erect. Much easier on the back. Also blade changes are a snap.

                                    I BOUGHT THIS ATTACHMENT MAY 28, 2021
                                    For the work I needed in my yard that hasn't had official edge trimming done in many years, I decided to finally get this attachment for my Ryobi cordless 40V string trimmer. My trimmer is about a year old, I use it a couple of times a month and the battery was freshly charged. Bottom line, it would not trim the edge of my grass without the trimmer head shutting off/cutting out likely due to overload just after 15 after 20 seconds of use. My grass is not your model home, upper-class Bermuda grass golf course lawn but you would think it could manage cutting an average joe shmoe's yard perimeter. Here's the video I made just to show the actual experience. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MDsLsN1JXyI
