Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful and lightway Bought this 4 months ago, I've been able to handle the majority of tasks at my backyard by exchanging tools within this unit. The 40V battery miss function prematurely but I was offered an exchange for a brand new unit with no extra hassle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast and Easy to use I've been switching to cordless outdoor power equipment. I'm just tired of mixing gas, replacing fuel lines, and pull strings. I got this because it seems you can use a lot of different attachments. When I got it I was excited when I found out that it was able to work with my old gas attachments as well. Specifically the brush clearing attachment that I have. I love the ease of use combined with the performance tried it out was able to clear 3k sq ft of brush and cut though thumb sized weeds with little effort all on 1 charge. Great addition to my Ryobi collection. Next on my list is the tiller attachment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product Works with many different tool attachments. I use the chainsaw one, the weed wacker one, and the reticulating saw one. Convenient that they use the same batteries as the lawn mower.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This gets the edging done! Very pleased with this weedeater. It's fast, but not as easy to control or edge a straight line. It works perfect. Easy to release the string and very powerful. The battery lasted thru my entire edging of my .5 acre yard, including my flower bed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent line trimmer & blower We should have gone from gas to battery a long time ago. This has plenty of power, no empty tank when you need to trim, and no annoying gas/oil mixing. We love the trimmer and the blower is good as well - it's a different setup than the usual blower but it has plenty of power and the freedom of no cord.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the weight Been using gas commercial trimmers for years and I'm tired of replacing carbs. It feels like a regular trimmer without the weight that makes my hands hurt

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super easy After battling with my gas trimmer/edger I decided to move to an electric one. I was concerned that there wouldn't be enough battery to get my entire yard but it worked great. If I were to have anything to critique, it would be that the tool can stall out when dirt gets stuck in the edger. But by either removing the dirt, or taking the battery out and replacing it I'm able to complete the job.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Powerful! I needed a replacement 40V battery and for the same price as just the battery I bought this 40V expand it with string trimmer, battery and charger. Much more powerful and effective than the 18V trimmer I had. I love the string reload simplicity and it feeds out very effectively. Unless you have a small lot, I recommend buying a 6.0 Ah battery or you'll need to recharge to finish the job.
