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 have the tiller and a 2.6Ah 40 volt battery. Depending on the soil, I can get about 20-30 minutes of run time. More time if the soil is loose, less time if the soil is compacted. Compared to my 2 stroke gas power head, I would say this 40 volt power head has about 70% strength of the gas. So, it works fine on most jobs for my needs, just a little slower. If you need to break sod, this will be slow going and you will probably be disappointed unless it's just a small patch. I still have a walk behind gas tiller for bigger jobs, but I use this 40 volt power head and tiller attachment for about 90% of my work around the house and in the garden.

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.

will it work with any universal pole saw attachment? or do i have to buy the ryobi 40V X pole saw attachment? how long is the head? what is overall length with the ryobi pole saw attachment connected to this?
Asked by: Fritz
Hi Fritz! Yes, this will work with universal pole saw attachments. This 40V power head is about 3 ft long, and with the RYPRN33 pole saw connected the entire length (with extension pole) is about 9.5 ft. Thanks for the question!

Asked by: Benjovi
Hi BenJovi! The motor will not get hot. You are able to move the handle on the shaft. We hope this helps!

RYOBI 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 378.
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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Electric over Fuel I have a 2 stroke that just won’t run consistently well. I had finally had enough but liked the multi attachments as I already have 3 in total. A review I read stated the charge lasted like a tank of gas. Not sure if this is true or not. I charged it up fully when I got it and it lasted me 3/4 of weedeating a standard corner lot property. Now I did replace the supposed self feeding head with the style you put in a few pieces of string and the design allows it to last longer. Now I do have a thicker style of string for a longer life so maybe this could be part of it. I have also noticed that I can fell the attachment as like it’s 2 separate pieces not attached well. I did not notice this with the 2 stroke head. Now this could just be me not tightening it as much as I could for fearing stripping it out as I read in reviews. After it ran out of charge my first use I got to reading the booklets it came with. It doesn’t even come with the large battery... [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Expand It is best tool available I returned an Ego unit to go with the expand it. The toll is lighter and easier to use. Good battery life, enough to do my edging and trimming. I really liked the edger with the offset head making it easier to see where you are edging. 40 volt is great. I have recommended this to other customers in the store as well. I don't usually go out on a limb to recommend something unless I truly believe in the product. Customer assistance is store was also great. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Tool / Works Great I have had the Power Head for about a month and have used it with the hedge trimmer attachment numerous times. I have very high and wide bushes and these tools have made the job so much easier. It does get heavy after a while but that is expected, it has cut down the time required to do all my trimming. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND the Power Head. I have also bought the trimming saw but have yet to try I will review that tool at a later date. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

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 3 out of 5 by from Great Portability I bought this a while ago and have been happy with it for the most part. I had a battery fail about 6 weeks after the purchase and it appears a second one has failed. I'm told it's out of warranty even though the Ryobi Rep told me when I purchased it that the batteries carried a lifetime warranty. I guess I should've read the manual instead of trusting the factory reps word. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerfully easy to use I am very delighted with this adaptable power source. I owned an older model and used if for years, until the battery was old. This new battery is more powerful and longer lasting. It charges quicker and when using the trimmer attachment it still has plenty of charge when the job is done. My daughter borrowed it and I'm having a hard time getting it back because she loves it. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
