STRONG enough to MOW your yard!!! Great Battery life and charges quick.
This was purchased to trim around the house, and clean up the ditches in the front. It accomplished that and so much more! My tractor died, and was forced to mow my large yard, out of necessity. I recommend ONLY this model or a better one in the series. This is robust, comes with brush-less motor, carbon fiber shaft, and durable construction! I recommend NOT using the faster speed, because all it does for the most part, is drain the battery faster. The SLOW speed is sufficient enough! I am waiting to afford other accessories now. BEST purchase this year.

very powerful and long lasting battery
I bought this to replace a temperamental 2 stroke gas trimmer and man what an improvement! I have a 2 acre property with many trees as well as brush surrounding the perimeter. I am able to trim around all my trees etc. on one charge. The brush cutter head is also very impressive I cut through some thick brush and it just wouldn't quit. Over an hour of usage no problem. This has way more power and works so much nicer than any gas trimmer I have used. No vibrations like the gas models, and way quieter. It is about the same weight as a gas trimmer but that's due to the 40v battery which is well worth the trade off for the 1 hour run time. Highly recommended

Good Bye Gas
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I bought the 18v and if you live in the city great choice. The new 40v takes the place of the gas power weedears. This weed eater is light weight even with the 40v. Would like to see it with just a little less weight Plus.. This weed eater can be used around flower beds own low speed then back to high speed to cut just about anything. You can use string or the orange cutters in thick or tall grass. The string feed works great so far and easy to reload replacement string. Is there a way the shaft can be adjustable for shorter people. If it could slide in and out 4 to 6 inches for better control. The wife enjoys taking care of the yard work.

This thing rocks!
I finally broke down and bought a battery powered trimmer. I was hemming and hawing over it for a while now. Now I'm kicking myself for not doing it sooner. This thing rocks! And it's compatible with the attachments from my 20+ year old gas powered Poulan Pro that it replaced! I'm now contemplating getting the matching mower when my (also) 20+ year old gas mower s###s the bed.

Replaced my 35 year old Royobi with this model
After reading reviews and talking with the Royobi representative at our local store yesterday I chose this model. I’m with dealing with mixed gas eapecially ethinol which really ruins any small engine. My old head unit finally died and i wanted to still use my Royobi attachments. This tool accepts all of them. I am convinced that the new battery systems are relible. It took less than 40 minutes to charge the new battery. The new trimmer is lighter and easier to handle. Since it was too hot to work today, I spent 20 minutes clearing some heavy brush and blackberry bushes only using the standard head. OMG! What a beast. Quiet, powerful and amazingly easy to handle. I wiped out two rough sections in minutes and still have half charge. Ill be going back with the heavy blade and cultivator later. All my older attachments fit and work well. I have the original string trimmer, hedger, brush blade and cultivator. The best way to use the cultivator is to work backwards rather than pushing forward. This new power head can do the job. The other positives for me is not needing ear protection and not annoying neighbors.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Bought this a month ago and I’ve gotta say, this is a light weight trimmer. Love the carbon fiber shaft!

Did the job cut front yard and back yard and more. Very quiet weedeater. Cut through tall weeds with ease using the blade attachment. Also came with .80 line. Did whole yard off of one full charge battery. My only complaint kind of heavy with 40v battery on it. Beside that i like my purchase.

Awesome Build Quality
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I am thoroughly pleased with the build quality and ease of use. I read the manuals just to see if there was more to learn on how to use, but it’s all very straight forward. Assembly was a breeze, virtually nothing to do. This is very rugged, built to last!

Not gas-like power.
I am coming out of a 20-year old Craftsman gas string trimmer with an edger attachment. I was never able to stall the gas trimmer while edging. This thing stalls more often than I'd like it to. I used it to edge (with the edger attachment) around flowerbeds prior to putting mulch down. Every 20 ft or so the edger will be clogged with tightly packed dirt and the motor can't turn. Never had that issue with the 26cc gas unit.
The Ryobi cordless trimmer is smoother than the gas counterpart thanks to the electric motor, but not lighter. The powerhead weighs as much as a gas unit with the battery installed. We have a 100ft burning bush hedge that gets tiring to trim with a gas timer (with a hedge trimming attachment) holding above my head. It doesn't look like this is going to be any easier. Furthermore, it isn't very quiet either. While not as loud as a gas unit, with he trim dead attached it is much louder than the Ryobi 40V mower.
Unlike the gas units, you don't have to mix gas and oil and deal with the starting issues, clogged carburetors, spark plugs, engine heat, and exhaust fumes. I bought this with a 40V mower and they can share batteries. The battery that cam with it is not adequate to do the trimming, edging and the blowing required for my yard.
The 6Ah replacement batteries at Home Depot are slightly smaller and about the same weight as the 4Ah battery that came with this unit. I opted to get an additional 6Ah battery because they weigh the same and can be used in the mower also. But it costs about 80% of the price of this trimmer package.
For a small yard this will work fine with the included battery, but you'd probably have to buy extra batteries. Factor at least extra 60% into the price to account for the spare battery. At that point it is hard to match the cost of a gas trimmer unless you have other yard equipment that can share the batteries.
