This review is for 40 volt Ryobi, Model RY40006 power head with 4 Ah., Model OP40401 Li-ion battery and Model OP403 charger, plus Ryobi EXPAND IT, 18-inch straight shaft string trimmer, Model RYSST44. Only minor easily-done assembly is needed to ready this tool combination for use, it involving attaching the grass deflector for the trimmer and the comfortable soft-grip front handle for the power head. That handle can be installed either of two positions to accommodate right-or left-handed use at an angle that facilitates good trimmer head control by the user. Accessory tool attachment and re-installations are a snap with the large knob provided on the coupling mechanism The battery arrived with about a 25% charge. It took about two hours to charge it fully. I have used this trimmer four times for trimming our 1/2-acre yard, it still 75% charged, an indication that the battery capacity is quite adequate for the average homeowner yard. The power unit, including battery, weighs about 8 pounds-13 ounces. The trimmer accessory weighs about 3 pounds-4 ounces. That makes for a relatively light 12 pounds-1 ounce for the combination. That relatively light weight and good balance for the combination affords very good user control for the user. I appreciate the relatively quiet operation and the freedom from hard starts, freedom from high maintenance and the lack of smelly gasoline and exhaust fumes from my old gasoline-powered string trimmer. This tool combination will mostly replace use of my old gasoline powered unit. I have several EXPAND IT-style tools carrying the Troy and Homelite brands. They are compatible with this Ryobi power head. The carton for the Ryobi string trimmer indicates compatibility with 13 brands of power units. That listing does not include Homelite, although my accessories for that brand of power head work with this Ryobi head. Overall, I conclude that this tool combination is nicely designed, relatively quiet during operation and designed for great operator control. The long three-year limited warranty is a plus for an excellent homeowner tool.

This Ryobi 40 volt lithium-ion battery powered trimmer is the real deal, it has plenty of power to cut the grass and weeds that need to be trimmed. It has a straight shaft which I believe is much better than the curved shaft. Upon receiving this it did need to be charged as most all battery powered tools needs to be done. It was very easy to use and does have a safety lever which needs to be pressed along with the trigger. The really great thing about this is you can add other attachments such as a mini cultivator for doing gardens and flower beds and it seems to be made very well so should last for many years.

Pros: Electric, rechargeable, quiet, effective, accepts full range of Ryobi attachments. Cons: Battery lasts 20-25 minutes on a charge, motor becomes very warm, safety switch could be more foolproof. The Ryobi electric trimmer is a welcome change from gas powered models. The unit is quiet. At 74 db, it is about six times louder than a normal conversation and about 30 times quieter than a gas powered trimmer. For those who already own a range of Ryobi attachments, the good news is that this electric power head accepts all Ryobi attachments. Trimmer, edger, and branch trimmer all worked fine with this power head. The unit comes with a replacement string that needs to be wound by hand onto the rotating head. Some users report that this is not an easy operation. Personally, I have not tried replacing the string, yet. Here are three negative observations. One, the safety switch could be designed better. As it is, anyone (including a child) can turn the unit on. Two, a single charge lasted about 25 minutes; this may not be enough for a large lawn. Three, the motor became quite warm, not enough to burn skin; but certainly very noticeable as the arm touched the motor head. Recommended with reservation.

    Great tool !!
    Exceellent, flexible tool. I have used the brush cutter and weed eater attachments. Very powerful and fast. Heavier than the 18v weed eater but still OK for seniors.

              Great power!
              [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I am very suprised at the power this trimmer has. No hesitation to cut any grass of any kind and including some of my wifes plants, whoops. I just like the fact of not hooking up an electrical cord or having to run and get gas, just pick it up and go love it.
