I have 3 acres of land that needs trimming (trees and fence mostly) about twice a week. Is this the right model for that level of use?
Asked by: BJ
I wouldnt. The tank is too small. I have about 1/4acre with lots of edging and I need to add fuel before I finish. Seems to use a lot of gas too which makes small tank worse.

How to store the unit over winter? Should fuel stabilizer be added to the gas tank?
Asked by: Lawnguy
I used to be a lawn and garden tech for Sears. I recommend draining the gas from the unit and then run it until it stops. This removes all gas from the unit. It is also what the manufacturer recommends.

The gas tank looks very susceptible to breaking since the trimmer sets on the gas tank with no protection. Is this an issue I need to worry about before I purchase one?
Asked by: Johno
I’ve used mine for two seasons now and have had no problem at all with the gas tank. I’m careful when I set it down after using it, just like I would any other lawn tool of mine!

25 cc 2-Cycle Attachment Capable Full Crank Straight Gas Shaft String Trimmer is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 1773.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Used the Ryobi 25cc string trimmer on a large lot right out of the box and was not disappointed. ... Used the Ryobi 25cc string trimmer on a large lot right out of the box and was not disappointed. Fresh fuel and it started in about 4 pulls. After that 1 or 2. I was cutting some thick, high and wet stuff. The motor slowed but kept going through the thickest stuff for hours. I like the 18 inch diameter, it gets a lot of weeds when they're not so heavy. I was surprised at how quickly I went through string, although putting on fresh line is really easy, but not quite as easy as I thought it would be reading the directions. Overall, I am very satisfied with the purchase and would highly recommend this unit for anyone looking for a heavy duty homeowner grade string trimmer.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from So so trimmer... When it worked, it was a good trimmer. The interchangable attachments were great. I wish I could get it going, I will avoid Ryobi for anything other than handheld tools like drills and multi-tools. I had to return the first one because the clutch mechanism for the pull start broke after maybe 3 months of regular use. Cheap materials was the cause of that one. Trimmer #2 lasted about a season and a half of regular use. I've spent several hours tearing down the engine and although it has clean fuel, spark, and compression it fails to start.

It has really good power and has been pretty easy to start each time. The drawbacks are minor; 1. the gas tank is pretty small so it runs out pretty quick, and 2. the bump feed is WAY too sensitive. The line is very easy to load which is a huge plus, but it feels like you even touch a tough blade of grass with that button and it is feeding out more line causing you to go through a lot of line. I hope I get more used to this as time goes on so I don't have to keep purchasing LOTS of line.

Works great! started with 3 pulls, did my whole yard effortlessly and only used maybe a 1/4 tank of fuel. I read all about the ethanol problems people were having so I decided I would only run Truefuel 50:1 fuel, little expensive but worth it to have my machine run right without any of the side effects of premixing with gasoline with any ethanol in it. My only complaint is its a little heavy and my yard is pretty big, so Im feeling it today, but that's a good thing! A little workout. The Ryobi included .095 line is very brittle and broke very quickly, I was constantly bumping for more line, I will be changing that out before next use with some Rhino Line. This is a really nice little tool especially for the price point. I highly recommend this product from Ryobi.

It works fine, the only drawback is that they use a non adjustable carburetor for high & low speeds. Only the idle can be adjusted! After time all carburetors need to be adjusted but this one will have to be replaced instead of adjusted! Because of that I give it 3 stars Instead of five stars!!! I ONLY BOUGHT IT A MONTH AGO SO HOPEFULLY THIS CARBUREATOR WIL LAST FOR A COUPLE OF YEARS BEFORE IT NEEDS TO BE REPLACED! I do use fuel stabilizer with my gas mixture!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I've been using Ryobi string trimmers for over 20years now. I have several hundred fruit trees to trim around and a large property. Have had great life span out of all but the last one I bought. It was 1 cc smaller than the previous model but it was VERY weak. Had to warm up over 5 minutes to get to full revolutions and then only if the string wasn't all the way out. Returned it as defective. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 2 out of 5 by from 2018 is the first time I have ever bought a RYOBI product. I have had the trimmer for two months ... 2018 is the first time I have ever bought a RYOBI product. I have had the trimmer for two months to this point; that being said, I am glad I bought the HomeDepot 2 yr warranty! Today I will return my trimmer for the second time (3rd trimmer)! Every situation was the same: followed the directions, started perfectly, ran great with the edger and trimmer attachments...but when I turned it off, it would not start back up until it sits for hours or the next day! I even tried putting the attachments on without turning it off...with a half-tank of gas left...it shut off on its own and did not come back on after a 30 minute struggle on restart process! I will return it every month, if I have to, until the extended warranty runs out, then sell the last one and attachments on FaceBook Marketplace...cheap & switch to another brand! I never...ever had this issue with other brands I purchased in the past!
