40V EXPAND-IT™ Attachment Capable String Trimmer WITH 4AH BATTERY & CHARGER
40V ATTACHMENT CAPABLE 15" STRING TRIMMER KIT is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 3850.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quiet, no more burnt arm from exhaust gas, capable This is my third Ryobi weed trimmer. My first was excellent, 2 cycle exhaust was centered in the back so it didn't burn me.. started easily. My next was a 4 cycle that burned me since I am a lefty and the exhaust was toward me. And it never started. It hurt me many times with the high compression. And you could not use trimmer or pole saws with it due to the gas tank configuration. This solves all of that. And it is powerful enough. I wanted brushless, but none of the brushless seemed to be expand it type. That's what I want, one power head and many tools. Even though it's not brushless, it seems to do the work effortlessly. I would buy this again. I'm not going back to gas.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Power and Solid build Power on this trimmer is amazing. Definitely has enough power to go through foliage that has bogged down my other trimmers. Easy to use as well. Good battery life. Was able to trim and edge my 1/2 acre front yard on a single charge and still had some power left.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bought 2 RY40250VNM Bought same day used it 1 time and did not finish yard because the motor started smoking so i let it cool dow and the motor locked up. I also bought same model trimmer in July used it 8 time and the motor started smoking and the motor locked up. Total junk and a rip off!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cuts Great! I am 65 and this unit is heavy to me but well balanced with the battery installed. The bump head works well, and the battery lasted an hour cutting thick grass. I also purchased the fixed line and bladed head. The bladed head works great to cut saplings and thick briars. The coolest part is you don't have to mechanically remove the attached head, the bump head twists off so you can switch between the two cutting heads in seconds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great battery and features I was worried about having a battery weed eater but the battery lasts so long! I did my whole yard and it only went down 1 bar. Plus the additional attachments for it is going to save me a lot of time, space, energy, and money in the future! 10/10 recommend

Rated 5 out of 5 by from More than enough power for all my debris removal. I bought this 2 weeks ago to replace a different brand. This one has more power for moving my gum tree leaves in the Fall.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It does a great job. Very powerful and the battery lasts for all I need to do. It's a little heavy and I must sweep from right to left as it tends to pull away when sweeping left to right.
