Easy to use lawn trimmer!

Very easy to use and lightweight trimmer. Just click the battery on and and away you go. Battery runs close to an hour so you have plenty of time to do your job. All straight forward from angle to changing lines. Good value for money. Show details

Good machine, but fit a bigger battery for a beast

I fitted a DeWalt 1.8v XR flex 54v battery, via an eBay attachment. I now have a Strimmer that lasts 45 minutes of constant work. With a heavier duty trimmer cord, it's a beast and will knock down bramble and bramble. I'm now on my 5th year with this and it's showing no signs of stopping. I highly recommend this machine, but do fit a heavy duty battery if you want something that lasts. Show details

Auto feed and ease of line replacement are the winners here

I've had many whipper snippers in my time, and this has to be one of the best I've owned. The two standouts for me are the simple auto feed - it just works, and works very well (each time you release the power and the spool stops, it adds around 1cm of line length. I've had the trimmer for over a year now and have just had to replace the line spool. I use to dread this in my old trimmers, but this one took all of 2 minutes to change over - stress free - amazing in fact. It's good for medium duty gardening. It's light, well constructed, and well balanced. I use this in conjunction with my Ryobi edger and blower - a great threesome. I'm giving this Ryobi product 9/10 for ease of use and cost of ownership. Show details

Needs 5amp battery fully charged with yellow/green line. Is possible however 36v model would be better for lots.

It’s a very small lawn. Less than 50m2. So should be fine?

Do I have to replace the line spool when empty or can I wind new line onto it?

The line spool and new line is replaced at the same rime. When you buy a replacement spool it just drops right in. The easiest spool replacement i’ve seen, so extra brownie points for ryobi here.

Sounds good but it must be cheaper just to buy line without the spool. It also sounds like a waste of resources to replace the spool if it can be re-used.
