      Q:I have a new RYOBI attachment capable 18 volt + rechargeable battery weed eater. Will this fit my weed eater? Not sure if an 18 volt weed eater is heavy duty enough. I have a bunch of briars to cut down.

        A:  this attachment will last about 45/mins +/- depending on the age of the battery you will need the 40V 4amh batter for this puppy. the 18v batteries will not fit or will have the power to push it. on ours the blade starts up slow. Like you we had a ton of heavy weeds briars and cattails to mow down. Its better to have at least 2 batteries. this is the one we have https://www.homedepot.com/p/RYOBI-40V-Expand-It-Cordless-Battery-Attachment-Capable-String-Trimmer-with-4-0-Ah-Battery-and-Charger-RY40250/307663070

                        Powerful
                        [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I had to clear thick brush, vines and other growth next to my fence and into an easement. First pass was a bush hog. The bush hog didn't do so well in the ditch and along the steep sides. For that, I used the brush cutter. I was very impressed by the power and cutting ability of the included blade. (So was my neighbor.) I was able to clear all the little stumps left by the bush hog, as well as some of the smaller plants/trees growing from stumps. The brush cutter took it all down quickly. The blade does grab if you aren't careful, and yes, it will cut into metal fence posts. 6.0 ah battery did the whole area on a single charge. Very pleased with this item.

                          Works great
                          [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I purchased this brush cutter to do exactly that, to cut brush and briar vines. It worked fantastically. I started the project using hedge trimmer’s but that was a very slow and laborious process. A friend of mine recommended this cutter and after purchasing it the job became much easier.

                            I am impressed
                            I bought this attachment thinking it was a gamble but I was wrong. i paired it with my 40v ryobi brushless trimmer. I don't recommend sharping the blade, but I did to put less stress on the trimmer. I am very happy with my purchase.

                              Powerful tool, long lasting battery, quick payback
                              [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Wanted one of these long, long time. Finally found the Ryobi EXPAND-IT Brush Cutter Attachment. Works great, went through backyard brush in about one hour. Battery power impressive and long-lasting; did whole yard, still had power left. Unit surely paid for itself vis-à-vis lawn crew. Look forward to using the string trimmer next year.

                                Replace blade with circular saw blade
                                I took the blade that comes with it off and replaced it with a standard 7-1/4" carbide-tipped circular saw blade. I use it to cut off low-hanging branches, cut saplings off at the ground, and get rid of vines. Love it!!!

                                  [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This makes quick work of the tall brush behind the house. We’ve a mix of vines, tall grass, thick weeds, and small bushes and this takes care of them like a pro.

                                    I bought the brush cutter attachment not expecting much out of a battery powered cutter, but to my surprise it cut right through the brush with ease ! The weight is perfect for me because I'm female and over 60 !

                                    Attachment has the proper gearbox and metal blade guard for woody brush cutting. The blade arbor also easily accepts after-market blades. The included blunt "propeller" blade is good for cutting succulents and thick grass stems, but I use an after-market 8" diameter, 80-tooth carbide blade to cut honeysuckle, buckthorn and other heavy brush up to about 3" in diameter. I can work about 2 hours on one charge with the 40-volt powerhead. Super tool!

                                    Excellent Job cutting a variety of Brush Dimension
                                    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Ordered this attachment online and as soon as I received it I decided to give it a test run. The area I picked is at a cottage and has been a "thorn" (pun intended) in my side for many years. It consists of brambles, grasses and suckers that have emerged following the felling of trees. The latter range in size from 1/4 inch to 1 " , many of which are in groups of 5 and 6. I try to cut this area with a combination of chain saw, long handled shears and even a sythe! hard work and never truly gets completed at one time. This brush cutter attachment cut through all this in about 11/2 hours. Quicker and more closely than ever before. The picture included here does not show the lakeside area, but it was cropped excellently. I would strongly recommend this attachment. I have been very pleased with the Ryobi Expand-it tool anyway since I also have the pole saw, string trimmer, blower and hedge trimmer. I wanted to ensure that this attachment behaved as well as the rest and and happy to confirm that I was extremely pleased as always.

                                      [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I really wanted to review for my trimmer head. it is a 23 year old 725r that I bought this attachment for. I find it amazing that I could run to the store and get a tool that still bolted onto my trimmer. Below is the trimmer and attached is a short video of the mess I am cleaning up with it partially started. I had to let the yard go a couple of years because of a back injury. This brush cutter took an impossible task and made it child's play ( other then having to pick all that stuff up ).
