Questions & Answers

I know it says that it works with the expand-it products, but will it really power the tiller?

Asked by: mandetre
I do not have the tiller attachment but it has enough power to trim my entire hedge and the allow me to clean up with the blower.

How long can I use it before it runs out of battery power?

How long can I use it before it runs out of battery power?
Asked by: Vimal
I never timed my expand it 40v battery but I want to say if you have a amall yard it will definitely do the job, I line on an acre of land Andre I have to go through 2-3 batteries to complete the job. I also feel what tool I use changes the time frame if I use the blower I never have to change it, but if I use edger I go through 2-3 batteries my next purchase will be the trimmer just so I have one device with multiple batteries.

Bought the power head and an Expand-It 15 in. Articulating Hedge Trimmer Attachment. Is there a expansion pole that can purchased that be used between the two?
Asked by: Mike
Hello, Mike- Thanks for the question. At this time, there is not an additional extension pole available for use with the hedge trimmer attachment. We hope this helps!

I have a Ryobi 'Trimmer Plus LE720r' edger attachment that I used with my gas powered Ryobi 135R several years ago. Will the old edger attachment work with this power head. See pictures.
Asked by: gds
Hello, gds- This model is designed to work with most kinds of universal-fit attachments, so it should work. We hope this helps!

Expand-It 40-Volt Lithium-Ion Cordless Attachment Capable Trimmer Power Head - 2.6 Ah Battery and Charger Included is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 290.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Battery life: superb. The two attachments I purchased with it:... Battery life: superb. The two attachments I purchased with it: ditto. One was the brush cutter head with the alien-looking triangular blade. It bashes it's way through brush up to 3/8" diameter, a small version of the non-sharp spinning blades under tractors. The leading edge is about 1/8" thick so you really don't have to worry about sharpening it. It works dull. The other attachment was the chainsaw on a 12' pole. That little monster buzzed through a half dozen 5" branches, all of which I cut in at least three sections. No power loss. BUT as you'd expect the thing vibrates like crazy which causes the two connections on the pole to come loose. I will probably install a lock nut to prevent this loosening. My biggest complaint is with the manuals, which suck. The safety info they subject you to obscures the tool operation info. Don't let either of my two complaints interfere with you purchasing the power head or these two attachments, however; they really do work very well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's great! My gas powered Ryobi expand-it engine died today. I've had it for about 4 years. So I was about to buy another one and came across the 40v battery powered version. I had recently bought the 40v battery powered hedge trimmer and was very happy and impressed with its performance, so I figured I should give the expand-it 40v engine a try. I used it on my yard today and again I am impressed. It works with all the expand-it tools I've already invested in as well. This 40v line of equipment is the best thing they've done yet and I haven't always been happy with my Ryobi purchases. These batteries give you gas powered strength and endurance without the hassle of dealing with gas and oil. I really like them, so much so, that this is the first product review I have ever done. The batteries keep their charge when not in use for weeks it seems. This is good stuff. I've always hoped Ryobi would make a corded plug-in adaptor that could be used in those times when all your batteries have lost their charge. I still want that, but need it less now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cool Tool of 2014 We've been using the Expand-it system all Summer. In particular this power head with the: heavy duty string trimmer, edger, brush cutter and blower attachments. I LOVE the system. I've been hoping forever that cordless electric would gain the power and torque needed to be a workable substitute for gas powered products. I was so excited when this came out from Ryobi this year. It is SO NICE not messing with gasoline and all its maintenance issues. Ryobi advertises this to have "Gas-Like Power." They even trade-marked the phrase. I'd have to say the claim is accurate. It is gas-like. I'd say most attachments function at about 80-100% of the gas-powered version. It depends on the kind of job you're attempting. All in all though, this is a GREAT product if you want to get away from gasoline. The batteries last a long time, charge relatively quickly (90 minutes max). You can use all your Ryobi attachments you might have gathered from the similar gas or electric corded version. I highly recommend this.

I'm a 5'10" woman and I found this combo easy to handle and perfect for tilling a year-old compost pile of leaves and grass. Transporting this was much easier than lugging the small gas powered cultivator I used in the past. I also used the string trimmer attachment to chop up leaves inside a large trashcan. The light weight of the Power Stick made it easy to maneuver in there. I wish Ryobi offered a power stick that is corded, so I can run my Ryobi attachments with standard electricity when I'm close to a power source. I would buy both a battery power stick AND a corded one. If that was an option, I would have rated my cultivator/weed trimmer/Power Stick 5 stars. (I have an older model Ryobi hybrid leaf blower that works with either a battery or an extension cord...LOVE that option!)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The Ryobi Expand-It 40 Volt Lithium-Ion Cordless and its attachments, which I own 3 attachments, ... The Ryobi Expand-It 40 Volt Lithium-Ion Cordless and its attachments, which I own 3 attachments, exceeded my expectations for each attachment used to preform its task. The battery gets between 20 - 25 minutes of usage time (based upon new batteries), which again exceeded my expectations for operating the mini chainsaw branch remover and hedge trimmer. The only disappointing feature of the 40-Volt battery system is the recharging time, which takes about 3 hours to recharge. At the price of the battery and chargers, I only could afford 2 complete battery and charger sets. I would highly recommend if you plan on using these tools for extend periods of a work day, you would need 4 - 5 battery/chargers to maintain any type of production/efficiency.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile convenient tools Where has this been all of my life? Horticulturist who could have used this versatile clean tool for years now gets one at age 66! The battery may only last an hour and a half for solid brush cutting but thats all I can last myself! It charges up again pretty fast and I get a lot done before it runs out. Ryobi didn’t recommend the battery head for the brush cutter attachment but honestly it works like a dream. It reduces handcutting time by two thirds or more. The other attachments work great and don’t drain the battery as fast. Battery power beats breathing fumes and is less noisy. I’m a little old lady and I can handle it. Thank you ryobi!

The cordless trimmer power head was significantly more expensive, but it gives you a lot of freedom. You do not have unlimited time, but the recharge is not too bad.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Tool I sold my gas weed eater for this a few months ago. I will never go back to gas. This is a good, easy to use, effective tool. I can't wait to get some attachments for it. First one will be the edger. Also did the same with my mower. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
