New to these electric trimmers and looking to buy one, but isn't 1.3Ah underpowered for this application? I guess the second battery helps, but just wondering what the power output would be like compared to the trimmers that run 2Ah and 4Ah batteries. Input is appreciated.

It's been my experience that all of the 18 volt yard tools are too under powered to be really useful. Absolutely love the test if the 18 volt set, but there is a reason they came out with the 40s

18v??? Is this just to jump start the tools before you put the 40v batts in?

As long as the current draw is high enough, these tools can have decent power. If that's the case, you might get a few minutes battery life from 1.5 Amp hr batteries.

Just picked up this weed trimmer reconditioned from DirectToolsOutlet. The 1.3 is just hte size of the battery. The current is what matters and these batteries actually supply more power for the tools then the older model 4ah ones. They will just have less run time.

In my use case, I am able to trim a 0.90 acre lot loaded with trees and bushes with just 2 of the slim pack batteries. Now if you let things get overgrown then you will have a little more of an issue but the trimmer will still knock it all down. I highly recommend the 18v line if you just have a simple lot with some simple edging. If you live in the country with serious weeds then you will want gas powered or 40v.

I have both the blower and the grass trimmer. 1.3Ah is no bueno. 4Ah works well as long as you are fully charged going into it. My grass trimmer can run probably a solid 20-25 minutes with the 4Ah; maybe call that 300-400 linear ft?

leaf blower: you aren't going to use this to clear leaves off your lawn off. But this will blow off patios/walkways/driveways/etc.

no experience with the hedge trimmer

I have this trimmer and hedge, recently got rid of the blower for a better P2180. The trimmer gets a 0.3 acre fenceless yard done with a 1.3ah. But I sold my 1.3ah and 2.6ah on cl and got bigger 4.0 and 6.0 ah ones. You should be able to sell both 1.3 with the charger for $40, $50 if you are patient.

The hedge trimmer works fine, never had issues with a lack of power. Same with the weed whacker. The blower that comes with this kit is only good for getting dry grass off of smooth surfaces, and slowly at that. It is actually called a sweeper on the Ryobi site.

yes, absolutely. i actually came here to say just that. its stupid that they pair this combo with 1.3ah batteries. the bigger one they paired my trimmer with... its not a 4ah, but its the size of one... i think its 2.6? it will trim my whole (1 acre of lawn) yard but ive tried running it a bit longer to see how much more it has, and it basically has no more juice left, so im draining the battery to max when i do my yard. i switched to the 4ah and use the 2.6 on my other tools. the 4ah is what it really needs for all but the smallest yards. from what i gather, the hedge trimmer uses even more juice.. the blower doesnt use a lot. its only for hard surfaces though.

however, these batteries are the new 1.3ah, which still have the same output... so power output will be the same as the 4.0. you just wont get very far with them at all.

IMO, this is a kit for someone who wants to collect tools. get this, then down the road buy a kit that includes the 4.0 batts. aka the deal right now with 2x 4.0ah, and a free tool for $99. use these 1.3s in your drill/driver for their lightweight-ness.

Thanks for the input, that's what I suspected -- rep'd you +4. Could you link to the curent 2x 4Ah battery + tool deal that you referenced? Thanks again!

have the hedge trimmer and ground trimmer thingy

both work for basic needs. Have a different electric blower, works fine for basic paved areas, not going to do anything on grass. youll need the gas ryobi blower for the lawn.

I have the blower and trimmer, and both are rather under-powered even using a 4Ah battery. I upgraded to their 40V line of yard tools and am really happy with them. That said, the brushless motor version of the 18V trimmer might be worth a try.

Not sure why there are so much hate about the 18V. I don't have the hedge trimmer but have the blower, string trimmer and lawn mower in 18V. They are doing just fine compare to my corded trimmer and gas lawn mower. unless you use your string trimmer to trim something else than grass, I don't know how powerful it needs to be... The 18V mower is able to chop up all the brush clipping with hard pencil size branches without any problem.

My yard is around 5000sqf with a lot of corners and edges. Using my heavy duty bulky garden tool set was painful. With the Ryobi set, I can usually finish all the mowing, edge trimming and blowing with two 4ah batteries with 1/4 power left on each one.

Very satisfy with the 18V garden tool with the benefit of sharing batteries with my drill, sander ect.
