          Plenty of power!
          [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I bought this trimmer a month ago and I couldn’t recommend it enough. It is light weight, quiet and had plenty of power for all my trimming needs. I also use this trimmer to edge and it excels for that use too.

            Great trimmer

              I can only say wonderful things about this trimmer. We had an older trimmer by Ryobi, and this model has so much more power than the older model. We can also use this with our Ryobi edger attachment and the power is fabulous. The machine does not struggle even in very thick grassy areas. A neat edge around the sidewalks, driveway, and flower beds just makes the yard look great. My husband edges a few times a year and then uses the string trimmer weekly to keep the edges tidy. We had a problem with the original trimmer we ordered. We let Home Depot know and Ryobi contacted us about the problem. The customer service could not have been nicer The company sent us a new trimmer and then sent UPS out to pick up the old unit so Ryobi could inspect it. We have many battery-powered Ryobi tools including a ride-on mower. We have had the mower for 7 years and it is still great. We also have a backpack blower that is also great. Don't hesitate about buying a Ryobi battery tool and get rid of the gas!

              Easy to assemble and lots of power
              The Ryobi 40-volt string trimmer kit is very nice. It looks like a lot of parts when it first comes out of the box but it only took a few minutes to put together. It came with a bump feed head, the bladed head, and some extra string. The trimmer feels solid once assembled and provides lots of power. It easily cut tall thick grass that was still wet. I’m going to some of the other attachments to go with this kit. The motor and trimmer head are louder than I was expecting for an electric unit. I’m so happy I will not longer have to deal with mixing gas, pull starts, exhaust, and all the other hassle of a gas trimmer. This 40-volt trimmer has more power than my gas trimmer. This trimmer makes my yard quicker and simpler.

              Plenty of power and good runtime
              This is the second Ryobi 40 Volt tool I’ve acquired, and as with the leaf blower, the string trimmer is surprisingly powerful. While it is a heavy tool, by adjusting the angle and position of the handle it can be balanced to allow for comfortable use. This kit includes the power head, the string trimmer head and the plastic blade attachment, 40 volt battery and fast charger. There are lots of variations of Ryobi string trimmers - this one is brushless so it has a longer run time (Ryobi says up to 72 minutes) and longer motor life, but it is not part of the “whisper series”. Whisper or not, it’s way quieter than any two cycle gas trimmer and just as capable. This is all based on 3 days of usage so I can’t vouch for long term reliability, but so far I like it a lot, and I just ordered the Expand-It edger attachment.

              Great Trimmer
              This is a powerful and versatile Trimmer. The Ryobi 40V trimmer is part of the Expand-It line, so the head can be used with other tools. This kit came complete with battery and charger. Out of the box it is set up with line, but you can also attach blades that are included for cutting thicker grass, weeds and stems. The adjustable handle allows you to make it comfortable for almost any height. It is the easiest I have seen to replace or add new string and the string extends during use with just a bump on the ground. The Ryobi Expand-It product line with the 40 Volt battery is the best way to go.

              Powerful, Versatile, and Expandable
              This is a wonderful tool! I wasn’t sure how I would feel about the battery lawn tools but ryobi does a wonderful job. For smaller yards their tools are great. This trimmer is multifunctional and easy to store. The large capacity battery is great for working and I love the options they give for trimming. The package comes with a fast charger, replacement line, plastic weed blades along with a rotating handle and shaft so you can easily switch between planes.

              Wow!
              What an upgrade! I switched over to this new 40v brushless trimmer coming from an older 40v brushless trimmer from 2018 and let me just say, you don’t notice the amount of power you are lacking until you get a fresh unit. Setting up the trimmer was a breeze, and everything was straight forward. You just need to mount the guard to the trimmer head, attach the assist handle to the powerhead shaft and connect your attachment and you are good to go. Everything that bothered me on my old powerhead was addressed and fixed in this unit. Some examples of nice upgrades from my older Ryobi unit are: The securing knob for switching attachments is significantly easier to use, by requiring less rotations of the securing knob to fully engage the locking tab. The trigger lock is now built into the trigger making activating the unit significantly easier and more ergonomic. Now as far as power goes, I’ll put this on par with a gas unit. This powerhead absolutely rips. So much so that I actually caught myself laughing at the sheer power it was putting out. The trimmer made quick work of all the weeds and grass that had grown around the edges that needed trimming. The one thing I love most about this unit is the xpand it system. It is significantly easier and cheaper to buy the various attachments and be able to swap them out without having to buy a dedicated tool for every job. In my inventory of xpand it tools, I have the bush trimmer, the brush cutter and the gutter blower. All of them connected seamlessly even though they are a couple of years old.

              Easy to use and Light Weight to carry around
              I would recommend RYOBI 40V HP Brushless Whisper Series 17 in. Cordless Battery Carbon Fiber Shaft String Trimmer w/ 6.0 Ah With Battery and Charger included. This comes out of the box with very little assembly and then it is ready to use. The battery charges up fast and holds a long charge for finishing up projects around the house. Light weight, which makes caring it around very easy. It cut the edges clean and worked great in my yard. 40V HP delivers a lot of power. Up to 67 minutes run time on the charged battery.
