Works fine, not sure why the bad reviews

published

Purchased this as a replacement for a leaky petrol trimmer, and quite happy with it. Much quieter than petrol unit, battery drain is reasonable (make sure you have a spare battery if doing a reasonable sized job).

No issues so far with auto spool, haven’t had to respool yet so not sure how hard it will be.

Those who say this doesn’t have enough grunt must be trying to clear heavy bush, for a normal garden edging or grass removal it’s perfectly ok. Will update if respool is a PITA.

Don't waste your money on this

published

Don't waste your money on this I've had one for a few years & it's too light weight for anything but a bowling green. The trim line is too thin and constantly needs bumping. If you have money too burn don't send it to me so I can buy something better. I'd rate it zero stars but 1 is the lwest they allow

Beyond expectations

published

This machine cuts better than my petrol line cutter so good I gave the hard starting smelly petrol one away. The bump auto feed works perfectly every time and doesn't cut the line prematurely. The 4A battery gives it more than adequate power even through Kikuyu grass. and I can do two cuts on one charge. It is reasonably quiet for a brushless motor. Very happy with this machine.

Great line trimmer. No need for petrol anymore.

published

Great Line trimmer I have thick Kikuyu lawn and it trims the edges like a breeze. Works well, line is easy to load into. Trigger response is excellent. Very quiet unit. Will be buying more Ryobi products in the future.

Steer clear

published

Bought from Bunnings an I had to take it back the next day for a replacement as the motor was making weird noises.
Second one, went ok for about 3 months, then would not turn stop until I took the battery out. I took this one back to bunnings where they tested it and could not get it to work at all.
Got a refund and am now on the lookout for a petrol one instead.

Purchased in November 2018 at Bunnings Warehouse for $269.00.

Does a metal replacement head work on this? Something like Trimmer Boss? https://trimmerboss.com/

I am having problems getting the cord line to come out. I tap it on the ground whilst running but the cord does not extend. I have only had the machine for about 18 months and its been like this for the last 6 months. I have tried turning it off, turn it over and hit it with my hand and tug on cord but no luck. any suggestions.
