YES - just what the gardener in me needs

Most definitely get one if you like myself have previously used the manual process of a Non powered hand cutter, whipper snipper etc. it just takes too long and won’t leave the even cut or straight look

This thing is fantastic!

Easy to assemble, light to use, ergonomic design with the length and handle and 6 year warranty via online registration on the easy to use ryobi tool registration online website (register the tool, upload the receipt and doneski)

The 4ah battery will last long enough though if you have large over growth it may cut out but you’ll cut enough to lift the excess turf cuts off easily enough and then just go over it again. After the first deep cut setting run the preceding edging will be a breeze and the battery will last long enough.

The only real issue I’ve had with this edger is when you cut to the deepest level (I would recommend this the first time then go to heighten settings for the cleaner look) is the the soil will spray across your fence or house meaning you will have to hose or clean it off. It’s a tough fix - maybe if the units safety guard was lower it may help.

I didn’t grade the edger lower because of it and as mentioned when you cut at a higher setting their isn’t as much soil spray back ( you and turn the edger around so it spray on the road ;p)
Anyway my most favourite things about this is that it SAVES TIME, it’s cordless and light to use and any additional replacement parts are easily purchased at bunnings stores state wide.

Maintenance isn’t too bad but you will get your hands dirty cleaning out the soil within the safety guard but that’s to be expected

Update August 2022 - still love it my naturestrip is definitely the best in the street with these beautiful corners. The blade is still in great condition (mind you i do clean it after every use and apply garden silicone spay to keep it in mint condition)

Purchased in at Bunnings Warehouse for $249.

Great Product, with a Cutting Edge

If you are looking for a product to add to or kick off your Ryobi One+ journey, This product should be on on your list. Easy to assemble, with the right amount of power to give a great result. I have used other edge trimmers in my time and this one ranks with one of the best. Show details

Weak trimmer head Ryobi would not honour warrantee

Fist unit bezel around string failed and tried to buy replacement part but was told they didn’t supply…impossible to remove trimmer head… Soooo had to purchase new trimmer which I did… after eight months and not heavily used the trimmer head on the new unit broke off the unit… took it back to Bunnings who by chance had ryobi rep in store… after looking at the broken unit he admitted it was faulty and warranty would cover it… BUT… because I had not kept the purchase recipt (which by then had faded and unreadable) was told because I didn’t go online and register my purchase they would not honour warranty … THATS HOW GOOD THE WARRANTY ISNT…. Two units both failed at trimmer head… Don’t buy.. I’m changing Brands .. Good by Ryobi one plus Show details

Everyone should own this

This tool makes my edges extremely straight and it's very easy to use. However the blade doesn't last very long. I have only used it 5 times and I've already had to replace the blade Show details

I've changed my petrol one to this. Excellent

My personal opinion is you won't go wrong with any of these Ryobis. My mower, trimmer, blower, everything is from them. Show details

It cuts a (nice) fine line

Another very good product from Ryobi. What the ol' whipper snapper can't handle, this comes in and annihilates those pesky edges. Simple to use, adjustable and efficient. This has to be near the top of my ryobi gear for getting the garden stuff done. Well weighted and easy to guide. I'm giving the edger a 9/10. Show details

lawn edger needs the guard improving

The Lawn Edger does the job tool but a bigger guard needs to be provided and be more robust to restrict stones from being propelled. One stone caused a broken window. Show details

Doesn't go the distance

At first I was very impressed. The Ryobi managed a very large block with lots of tough weeds. After a while the head that holds the line failed. The guy at Bunnings suggested I use an AEG head which was a big improvement. After a while the batteries started to fail. I found myself constantly cleaning the contacts and repairing the battery chargers. Eventually the contacts collapse in the batteries and you have to throw them out. The whipper snipper itself has not failed. It's just the poor quality of the batteries, chargers and components that let the system down. Show details

Just bought a ryobi oed1850, but my 18v battery (5Ah) won’t fit. Should I return the skin?

Take both the tool and battery back and ask a Bunning's team member what you are doing wrong that would be my suggestion.

I can't see why the battery won't fit. All Ryobi one products are 100% compatible. It may be a very tight fit. A stupid question but I have to ask - Are the battery and the skin both 18 volts?
