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 use it on my rural property and it works well. I bought a shoulder strap to help support the weight. It gets heavy after awhile.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful, started right up I just bought this yesterday and used it for the first time this morning. It worked perfectly. I bought different 2 cycle oil based on other reviewers saying the oil that is included can potentially mess up the engine. The string that is included is very durable too. I hit my wire fence several times and I don't think the string broke. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent machine for the price. I bought this in Spring, along with the pole saw attachment, and used it all summer. Even though I mix fuel at 40:1 instead of the recommended 50:1 (I use the same fuel in all of my 2 stroke equipment, ethanol-free of course), the trimmer starts right up and has much more power than any other homeowner-grade trimmer I've used. Plows right through thistle, mullein, and tall grass, without getting wrapped up. The plastic feels thick and solid, vibration is non-existent, and a single tank of fuel lasts a long time. The pull cord is located on the back, so replacement is easy. The saw attachment works well for pruning trees, and I've used it on maple boughs over 6' in diameter. However, it's no Husky 390. You need to let it spool up completely before making contact, and take your time cutting. You should also have some chainsaw experience before using it, since a pinched bar is even harder to free when it's 10 feet above you. Cons: The forward handle keeps rotating during use, even though I tighten the wing nut to the point that any further will strip threads. I don't like the exposed wiring on the powerhead.

I've always had good experience with Ryobi products and this one doesn't disappoint. I've been using Ryobi trimmers and their attachments since they were yellow colored. This one replaces the same unit because I lost it to my ex. I bought the same unit and the new blower attachment and the trimmer attachment work well! I'm planning to buy the new backpack blower for heavier work. Fall is upon us and I want to make my work easier.
