Questions & Answers

How well with this run at an angle along a sidewalk?

Can I turn this on an angle to trim my sidewalks?
Asked by: David
Thank you for asking, David. This unit is not designed to be tilted or used at any kind of angle. If you need to use this item at an angle, we suggest loosening the knob and coupler and then tilting just the trimmer attachment but never the power head. If you tilt this engine, you pose a risk of mixing the oil with the gasoline and then locking down the engine. This would void the warranty and cause damage to your machine. Thank you for taking an interest in the Ryobi line! I hope this helps! –Keri

how often to fill oil,

I bought a new c430, no manual, no funnel in box my PC does not can download your instructions.
Asked by: bubuman
You only need to fill the oil as needed. It doesn't burn oil so all you need to do is check the oil level from time to time.

4-Cycle 30cc Attachment Capable Curved Shaft Gas Trimmer is rated 2.8 out of 5 by 270.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't waste your money I've had one for less then a year and now the repair shop said it isn't really worth fixing. Not getting enough compression to start. This is the second Ryobi weedeater to have this problem, but first four stroke. I was committed to buying this product since I had all the attactments, but I guess they will have to go up on Craigslist.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Biggest Piece of Junk I ever bought Horrible product. Problematic from day one. The feeding mechanism is terribly designed, I spend more time winding up line than I do cutting weeds. The motor faulty and cheap, fails to start, then dies all the time. I have had a electric weed eater for 18 years and I wanted to upgrade to a gas one. This one was a horrible mistake. It now takes me more time to weed eat my lawn than it did with an electric one. STAY AWAY FROM THIS PRODUCT!!! In fact, I will never buy a Ryobi product again because of this thing. I had enough of it today and just plain dumped it in the trash after a year. NEVER BUYING RYOBI AGAIN!!!

Good power with a smooth throttle. Have not tried it with any attachments yet. That will be the true test.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So & So First of all, you have to understand the basics of how an engine works to NOT make the simple mistakes owners are making with this unit. The unit has a crankcase with oil in it. You never use it or store it other than in a horizontal position....oil running to the upper engine will make it smoke and foul the sparkplug. Gasoline running out of the carburetor bowl will leak out and flood the sparkplug. The nicest thing about a 4-stroke is that the carb won't become eventually clogged from the gas/oil mixture which causes...no starting....leading the user to believe it's finished....time to buy a new one. Treat it like your lawn mower or any other engine...never turn it upside down...store it horizontal and you shouldn't have any problems.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Powerful, Quiet, Clean Running, Fits All Attachments This 4 stroke weed trimmer offering from Ryobi meets my expectations for an attachment capable piece of lawn equipment. Not having to mix oil and fuel makes for easy refueling at any point during yard work. Use the same fuel canister you use for your lawnmower, snowblower, etc. The starting instructions are simple to follow. Fill the crank case with the included oil and funnel, fill with regular gas, prime the engine, choke per the instructions on the choke lever, and pull the starter handle. This engine starts very similar to the 2 Stroke Ryobi powerhead already own, Only differing in that the choke on the 4 stroke model is not automatic. Using the choke lever is easy to figure out, it's clearly labeled and I like the way it is set up. This engine has a low gurgle to it's idle and throttle up. Quite different from the loud whine of a 2 stroke engine. It's pleasant to hear running and much nicer to have near you when cutting a lot of weeds. Using any of the numerous attachments involves loosening the large attachment knob on the shaft, pushing in the locking pin and removing the current attachment for the new one. Snap the new attachment into place and re-tightening the knob. You're ready to go that fast. They lock in firmly and there is no slippage between the connections. I have almost all of the Ryobi attachments for this tool already and they all work perfectly with this powerhead. There is no lack in power while using any of them. Being a 4 stroke, you have plentiful power on the lower end of the throttle, with lots of torque for hitting heavy brush and weeds. The included curved weed trimmer attachment is built well and works smoothly. I would have liked to see a larger guard on the trimmer head. This small one works, but allows too much debris to go flying. My older attachment has a guard more than twice this size. The product description says that there are two trimmer heads included. Well, not on the one I got. Only one trimmer head came with this machine. So I called Ryobi support as the directions said I should and after 15 minutes waiting on hold a very curt employee interrupted me while I was explaining the issue and told me that a second trimmer head is not included and that's that as far as he's concerned. I was not impressed. If this is how they deal with minor issues, I'm not looking forward to needing to use the warranty on this if I have to. Other than Ryobi's customer service line being less than helpful, the machine itself is a quality item. It starts easily, runs well and has plenty of power to complete any task I gave it. The drawbacks were the second trimmer head not being included in the box per the product description and I would have liked to see a nice shoulder strap included at this price point. I have a large lot, with the house, two outbuildings, numerous gardens and beds. It usually takes a half tank in the 2 stroke model to cut all the weeds. With this 4 stroke model it took less than half that amount of fuel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Serious Power!! Ok, let me start by saying I've read all the reviews for this thing...good and bad. There are a few things I would like to point out that may help someone else out who is on the fence about buying a 4 cycle trimmer. First thing first: it's not a 2 stroke therefore you cannot treat it like a 2 stroke. READ THE MANUAL before you start it for the first time. You do NOT have to touch the throttle when starting this machine. Just pump the primer bulb 10x's and set the choke to start and pull. You have to let it warm up for at least a good 30 seconds before you try to give it any gas. I usually let mine go for about a min. Trust me it's worth it, if you try to gas it before it's warm, the engine will die and you will possibly flood it which will make it hard to restart. Once it's warmed up and you give it some gas it comes alive. It sounds mean and has some serious power. Also, when your done you must store it horizontally. Once again it's not a 2 cycle. If you store it up right, the oil will leak to the top of the piston and it will be really hard to start, and gas will leak out of the carb. It must be stored horizontally. Also, if you find it running kinda rough, check the spark plug gap. If the plug gap is not set properly it will not run good. I had a blower that I bought brand new from sears(4 cycle) and the spark plug gap was way off when I got it and the blower didn't want to run at all. So I suggest checking the gap prior to starting for the first time. It should be set at .025 I have no problems with cold or hot starts with mine. I usually just leave the choke set to "run" and it'll start after about 2 or 3 pulls. This is a great trimmer but it does take a little more work than a 2 cycle, but it's worth it to me.
