40V ATTACHMENT CAPABLE 15" STRING TRIMMER KIT is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 3668.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Power! Absolute Power!! I bought this in a package with the charger and battery. Wow I was not ready for how strong this trimmer is. I have used gas trimmers with power like this, but they are a pain to use and you have to carry mixed gas etc. This trimmer cleared my yard ( 3/4 acre) in nothing flat, very little short of a full grown tree can stop this. Easy to use, easy to balance and with a 40v 4ah battery you don't have to stop. I am going to get the brush hog attacchment for some of the thickets that grow up and tackle those. Thanks Ryobi

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointed I have the four stroke version of the xpand-it tools and liked it. I bought one of these for my father and it has been great (he bought two more for some volunteer work he does). Unfortunately, I have not had the same experience. I had to return the first due to a broken part out of the box and the second one had a battery fail after one use… (three stars due to how well they work for my father)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent trimmer I purchased this recently to use on my elderly mother's overgrown yard in Arizona. It did a good job on thicker tumbleweeds and prairie grasses. The only complaints I have with the trimmer are that the 40V 4.0 Amp battery lasted far less than the up to 1 hr and 11 min runtime. It lasted on average 30 minutes in real world use. Also, the trigger lock system was not the best and I wish it would have come with a shoulder strap as it does get heavy with extended use. I really like the string winding system, but if you are trimming and the strings get too short and go inside the head, the head disassembly is extremely difficult. It was bound in place and would not turn to disassemble. You have to pry at the right points to get it to turn out of its locked in position. Overall, I do like the trimmer and would stress not to let the line get too short as to be sucked back in the trimmer head.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very simple to operate. Excellent trimmer, having no electrical cord is a game changer. Will recommend to buy another 40v battery, 4ah battery that come with the trimmer will last roughly 50-60min.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice machine 40V power is awesome. I like this trimmer but do have a couple issues with it. One is the string feed bump could be better, seem like I have to do it by hand, no big deal. My biggest issue is the expand-it attachments seem expensive to me.
