Questions & Answers

What is the difference between this trimmer and the other cheaper 40v Ryobi Trimmer (Model # RY40210A)?

Asked by: Boomer
The cheaper one is 12" swatch diameter which is some how the traditional cordless model standardss, where as this one, like gas powered, has 15" diameter, if that make you happy. I am happy with the 12" though for half this price.

Cutting head rotation

Which way does the cutting head rotate? I want a trimmer that rotates the way most curved shaft trimmers rotate and I believe that is clock wise.
Asked by: PMP350
According to the instructions after removing the battery, you step down on the foot pedal and rotate the trimmer head counterclockwise. In my instance doing things properly is of no use at all, the head jammed permanently on the day I first bought it. Good luck with yours. You will need it.

Bought one of these last night. Ready to get started. Next question is after battery is charged where is best place to store battery?

On charger? Off of the charger? On the attachment? Should battery be exposed to hot and cold temps in storage shed?
Asked by: DoDa
Thank you for asking, DoDa. To obtain the longest possible battery life, we suggest removing the battery pack from the charger once it is fully charged and ready for use. For battery pack storage longer than 30 days, store the battery pack where the temperature is below 80°f and away from moisture, store battery packs in a 30%-50% charged condition, and every six months of storage, we recommend charging the battery pack as normal. Great question! I hope this helps. –Keri

Is this 40 volt battery interchangeable with 40 volt self-propelled lawn mower?

Asked by: MW
Sure is! Honestly, I really love this system. I bought the trimmer, chainsaw and blower as well as the mower. No more pulling a cord on a tempermental gas mower. The noise difference is amazing as well. Glad I made the switch

Customer Reviews

40-Volt Lithium-Ion Cordless Attachment Capable String Trimmer - 2.6 Ah Battery and Charger Included is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 3254.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Extremely dissatisfied I bought this product less than a month ago, used it 3 times, and the battery is already in need of replacement. Took it to the store and was turned away because it's a battery issue so I was to call Ryobi for replacement. The battery is on backorder so it will be at least 2-3 weeks before i get it. He told me that was good timing because it used to be December before they could get it (it's now August). The lady behind me at Home Depot was bringing hers in for the EXACT same issue. Frustrating that I can't return the defective product within the return period on my receipt. $200 spent on this product and attachments, only to not be able to use it during peak mowing time.

It worked great for almost a month and a half and truly does power all of my attachments just like the old 2-cycle gas models. I used an edger, hedge trimmer, and blower attachment and was impressed with how they worked. Now the downside: one battery was not enough, especially with charging issues. The battery worked fine for the first couple of weeks, then never seemed to hold a full charge until it eventually stopped charging at all. I really want to see products like this one do well, but until Ryobi can get their battery and charging issues sorted out, I will have to go back to mixing gas.

I bought the gas Roybi one and a bunch of the attachments but after one season the gas head died. I bough an electric Roybi but after returning it multiple times because the power switch was faulty I went with a battery power string trimmer. I used it one time in late spring and now the battery is indicating faulty. It is too late to return it to the store and a new battery is 85 bucks. I don't have the time to deal with a factory return. I will not buy any more products from Roybi they are making junk. Stay away from the deal it IS too good to be true!!!

The first one worked for about a third of the season, the second one worked less then two months. When you first get them the work good for 20 min then charge..... I bought the extra warranty and when I returned the second one yesterday I was actually glad they were out of stock. Now I'm thinking I'll pay the extra $20. And try the dewalt.... It's the battery.... won't hold a charge at all after a few months and to buy a new battery cost more then the tool itself. Very unhappy with this tool.

As long as you keep your expectations in check, you'll be good to go. It's not gas. So, it's not quite as powerful. BUT it still packs a punch! I've used it every weekend since I bought it 4 weeks ago. No problems with edging. I bought the 40v mower at the same time. I was able to mow, edge, mow again all one one charge - with at least 1/4 battery left over. (I admit, like most modern neighborhoods, I have a small yard). But since it was edging so good, I put it through its paces on the overgrown side yard. It whipped through all this in less than 30mins. Still had battery power left, so I started a second pass. I took a picture when i got a few feet in.

My issue is with the battery. I needed to replace it once, and going on a second time in less than a year. The first replacement process was average, needed to provide tool, battery, and charger model numbers and serial numbers -- all after they were registered on the Ryobi tool site. I am on the second time and gave all the same information for the replaced battery, but they required that I provide the email that was sent to me more than 6 months ago. I do have my receipts from the initial purchase, but that's not good enough. Buyer beware of the warranty. Ryobi please support your customer base!

I switched from a gas trimmer and while this isn't as powerful, it works just fine. I think a lot of the unhappy reviews are from people expecting the electric trimmer to be as powerful as a gas unit, and the battery's somehow also supposed to last for hours. Come on, people, battery technology isn't there yet. It works great for what it is, an electric adaptable system to various yard tasks. If you have an acre of knee-high grass, no, it's not going to do it in one go. If you're using the hedge trimmer attachment, no, it's not going to cut straight through 1/2" branches like a 2hp gas unit. If you're cutting down an oak tree with the pole saw attachment... seriously? There's a saying, "it's a poor craftsman who blames his tools." I'm happy with it when used as designed.
