Asked by: Lewi
They should be compatible. If it fits, it should operate properly.

Will this attachment fit a 40v unit? I’m not sure of the model number.

Will this attachment fit a 40v unit? I’m not sure of the model number.
Asked by: Jim
It will work with the Ryobi 40v Expand-It power units. However, unlike the original trimmer attachment, you cannot remove the spool on this one to replace it with something different, such as a pivoting trimmer line head. Over a ten year period, I have found Ryobi trimmer spool systems to be extremely unreliable. They either jam so that they never automatically advance line anymore, or the line constantly breaks off where it exists the spool. In any case, one spends more time fighting with the line spools than with the trimming work. I bought one of these attachments thinking that I would just toss the Ryobi spool and move the pivoting line trimmer head from the older version of the same Ryobi attachment. Unfortunately, that was not possible. Fixed spools that wear out reduces the useful life of Ryobi trimmers unless you are mechanically handy enough to remove and replace them with something better. For a new attachment with a fixed spool, that's not worth the trouble. I would also not have needed a new attachment if the gears in my original Ryobi trimmer head had been more durable.

Expand-It Straight Shaft Trimmer Attachment is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 701.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Unlike the original line trimmer attachment that came with my Ryobi 40V Expand-It system, this ne... Unlike the original line trimmer attachment that came with my Ryobi 40V Expand-It system, this new model lost the ability to swap out the spool for non-Ryobi line trimmer configurations that work much better. Ryobi has always failed miserably on their line trimmer spool design, and that has not gotten any better with this latest model. When I first powered it up, the spool insert popped out on its own and went flying. After an extremely tedious process to get a loaded line insert back into the spool, the insert would not reliably lock, so the second time it was powered up, line came spewing out and tangled up around the spool and shaft. I will be returning this disastrously bad trimmer head to Home Depot today because customer service had no solutions. They also recommended a parts source which was supposed to sell replacements for the original trimmer attachment, but doesn't. This is my third Ryobi trimmer over a ten-year period. After experiencing the sometimes dangerous clumsiness of the other Expand-It attachments, and this worse-than-ever trimmer attachment design, this may be my last Ryobi purchase.

I struggled with it so much because it would not feed when bumped (or pounded, towards the end). I had decided to keep it because it did work as a trimmer, but would require manual line advance like any other standard trimmer. Ryobi customer service is awesome. I gave the trimmer attachment a low score and a rather bad review. Not long after my post I received an email from Ryobi customer service – they were concerned about my dissatisfaction and wanted to help. I was sent a replacement trimmer head to try. Whatever was wrong with the original one must have been a fluke. I have revised my original score of two stars to five because now that it functions as it should, I really like it. I have used it several times since replacing the part just so I would know it was truly going to keep working. It has and now I can say to anyone who has made it this far: if you are considering whether to buy this attachment, buy it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Attachent Since I bought the 2 cycle expand-it I have added about 6 attachments. This attachment is a kick butt trimmer. It is very strong and will Handle ANY weed trimming job you have. The cable used to cut is very durable and with stands a lot of trimming. I hve several other Ryobi battery trimmers and did nit at first think I needed this attachment. I was very wrong. It should have been one of the first attachments I added.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid Trimmer with power! This is an easy to use solid trimmer. I hook this up to my Expand-It 40V Lithium battery powered controller and this rips through the grass in no time. The battery lasts long enough for you to get tired of doing it so that works out well. I have the tiller attachment as well and it has done a great job. I would recommend this to anyone looking for simple and effective way to maintain their property. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New string head I finally had to replace my straight shaft trimmer after weekly use for about 8 years. This new head is easier to restring. Box said 60 seconds, realistically 2 minutes, but a huge improvement over original design. Keep up the great work RYOBI. I’M a HUGE fan of your cordless tools and use them on a daily basis. Fuel powered tools are fantastic as well. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works amazing I bought this attachment to replace one that broke of another brand. Ryobi was the only one I could find that was a string trimmer and self feeding and would fit my trimmer. It attaches just as easy as my original attachment. It works even better. The string it comes with is the plastic coated metal wire which gets chewed up just as much as the ugly string I usually use against the rocks in my yard but it works much better against the weeds on the hill behind my house, and it didn’t get bogged down with the tall grass wrapping around the head. The bump feeding head works better than any I’ve used before. I am very pleased with this attachment. If there was anything negative I’d say the guard could be wider so fewer clippings would come back at me. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this straight shaft trimmer. This one was purchased to replace the first Ryobi straight shaft trimmer I purchased about 8 years ago. Used it every week and sometimes twice a week for 8 years. Can’t see buying anything else. Keep up the great work Ryobi. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Does as it says. Takes alot of abuse. I use it to trim around my entire property about and hour a week of just trimming. I have had this attachment for many years and have worn out two power head units with it. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
