Just purchased a Ryobi 40v trimmer from Peterborough, Ontario, Canada. How do I get it to feed more line?

Answers

Hi Marion, Thanks for reaching out to us in regards to the RYOBI AC04156 Reel Easy Trimmer Head with Speed Winder. This is a bump feed style head and you will need to bump it on the ground for the string to advance. If you are having issues with the string being tangled, you pull both line ends taut for best loading results and to help prevent line from tangling.Push the bump knob down while pulling on line(s) to manually advance the line. Please do not bump on any hard surface such as concrete. I hope this helps. - Eve

I went to Home Depot two years ago to buy the new self feeding trimmer. Instead, the Ryobi guy was there and talked me into this system. Stupid me, I bought it along with replacement Ryobi string and it worked OK until the first restringing. The notches were new, and once you got the line through the dirty hole, you wound it up. Not as easy as it looks after the first time. There is only one channel in it for the string, so they overlap and get stuck. You fix it say a few cuss worrds and go on, only to take the frustration out on the bumper. Today was the last straw. I used their orange and black string, the notches are worn, the plastic top is falling aapart. I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND this head to ANYONE!

I purchased this thinking I'll this string trimmer one more chance. The original spool never worked properly from the start. So I replaced it with a new bump spool and apparently it burnt up. Not impressed.

It seemed great until it wasn't! I bought this to replace old bump head. I had my doubts because of all the plastic on it, but didn't have many options. Tried it out. The speed load feature is really cool. Very fast and easy to load. That is a plus. But the head just didn't hold up. After 2 hours of use I needed to load more string. I opened up and found that there was plastic melted inside and it was all eaten up. It's ruined. Hopefully Home Depot will take it back. Buyer beware!

horrible design
The head sticks out way to much and wears very quickly, after just one use you will see significant wear. Unless you hold this weed eater side ways its going to wear fast. Think that was the intent when making this weed eater so you have to keep buying replacment heads.....

Never again!!!!! After reading the directions to see which way it needed to be configured for my curved shaft with arbor style trimmer it was placed on it with the line reeled in. I tried it out and seemed to be working fine for about 5 minutes when my trimmer started over-revving to the point of blowing up. I stopped the trimmer and and took apart the trimmer head to diagnose why it stopped feeding and turning. Upon gettimg to the line feeder, the plastic was totally chewed up like a dog played with it. BRING BACK SINGULAR BUMP HEADS, I WILL PAY THE 9.99 FOR EACH!!!!!!

I purchased this trimmer head less than a year ago after the original bump knob on my Ryobi 40V trimmer wore out. The original bump knob lasted for 5+ years before wearing down to the point of being unusable. However the Reel Easy trimmer head's bump knob did not last nearly as long. After just a few months and about ten hours of use, the plastic knob has worn away and can no longer be gripped by the speed winder tool or even by hand to wind the trimmer line, making it completely unusable (see photo). Save yourself money and frustration and avoid this trimmer head.

This trimmer is a piece of crap. Worked one time, then quit. Line will not feed out, and the line easy feed worked one time. The entire feeder head came off the trimmer while I was trying to trim some grass. This is the kind of crap they sell at the Dollar Tree for a dollar. But this thing is not worth a dollar. Don't buy this piece of crap. Did I say this was a piece of crap?

Works exactly as advertised
Customer review from ryobitools.com logo
The install was straightforward and easy and the head works just like the original. Loading the new line could not be easier. I have noticed several reviews indicating that there was no hole in which to put the arbor shaft through. The kit I got has 2 line guides, one white and one black. The black on is installed by default and has no hole, but it can be swapped out for the white one that does. This is shown pretty clearly in the directions. No idea if this was a recent change or not. About my only concern is the life span of the bump head. While they all wear out, it does not seem that a replacement is not available without buying an entirely new head. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
