My Ryobi weed eater does a good job edging, but using this attachment is much quicker. I have mastered edging with it using just my right arm so I can walk straight ahead and fully erect. Much easier on the back. Also blade changes are a snap.

Great edger
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Been using Ryobi product since 2013. This edger attachment is work great with my trimmer. Easy to use attached only took a few seconds.

I BOUGHT THIS ATTACHMENT MAY 28, 2021
For the work I needed in my yard that hasn't had official edge trimming done in many years, I decided to finally get this attachment for my Ryobi cordless 40V string trimmer. My trimmer is about a year old, I use it a couple of times a month and the battery was freshly charged. Bottom line, it would not trim the edge of my grass without the trimmer head shutting off/cutting out likely due to overload just after 15 after 20 seconds of use. My grass is not your model home, upper-class Bermuda grass golf course lawn but you would think it could manage cutting an average joe shmoe's yard perimeter. Here's the video I made just to show the actual experience. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MDsLsN1JXyI

Broke in less than 2 years, used maybe 8-10 times
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Disappointed in quality and durability. Lasted less than 2 years and very limited use. There is no online warranty claim system available on Ryobi site either. You get less than you paid for with this product.

Response from Customer SupportJun 2, 2021

The edger attachment is backed by a 3-year limited warranty, so please contact us at reviews@ryobitools.com. We'd be happy to speak with you, and see what we can do to turn this experience into a better one!
safety guard cracked
bought the main gas unit and expand-it edger 3 weeks ago. Was enjoying the clean cuts between grass and sidewalk until I noticed the guard was cracked.

Edge great but weak plastic shield
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have owned this edger attachment for 3 weeks and used it 5 times and the safety shield cracked in two places. I always wear eye protection but did not expect the safety shield to be of such poor quality. See photos

Awesome Edger attachment
Bought the Ryobi edger and the Ryobi 40 volt trimmer today at Home Depot. Opened the boxes, everything in perfect condition, charged the battery, quickly and easily installed the trimmer shield/guard....then tried out both the edger and trimmer. Work great! Powerful and well balanced tools. Very happy with my first experience. Highly recommend! See pics of clean sharp edges along sidewalk....and it’s a corner lot with a long stretch of sidewalk.

Actually works really well
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Bought it to edge my concrete curbing, so yes I'm edging my edging. It works great. I was using the string trimmer attachment before but this makes the work go by much faster.

Versatile, space-saving and easy to use edger. At the end of this review is a link to a quick overview and demonstration video. If you dont want grass over-growing your walkways or curbs and neat clean lines along the lawn, this is a great tool for that. This really makes a lawn look better. Trimmer body is sold seperately, this is just the edger attachment. This fits right onto my Ryobi Expand-It trimmer (RY40240) but will fit any Ryobi gas or electric expand-it tool as well as most other brands. This edger does a great job edging my walkway and curbs. Swapping it out on the trimmer body takes a minute, you just need to loosen one knob and retighten it once the edger is on. It has great power with my trimmer and clips overhanging grass while also removing dirt fairly well too. You can adjust depth with a knob although I find just raising and lowering the end of my trimmer works better. It works great around turns as well and the rubber flap has prevented any stones from hitting my shins so far. This attachment replaces my gas-powered edger which took up a lot of room in my shed. Now, I can save space and just swap the edger and trimmer out when needed. The tool shaft, gears and blade are metal, the rest is plastic. This edger attachment is made in Vietnam.
