40V 12" STRING TRIMMER is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 800.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful Works great, the only thing is that it's kind if heavy. Could be cause it's 40v and the battery is larger.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not so great I bought this online 2 months ago and used it a little. Then I used it the other day in some heavier brush and it quit. It would start up and again stop after a few seconds. Exchanged it at the store and after use in heavy brush it stopped again with still the original string. Again exchanged it this morning and hoping for the best one more time. I purchased an 18” 40v chainsaw a few weeks ago and was amazed at how well that worked. Next will be a 40v polesaw and leaf blower. I loved the Ryobi line but the string trimmer needs improvement.
