I have the 80v kobalt self propelled mower and it works pretty well for mowing two steep hills. It has two blade speeds but only kicks into high speed when it detects thick grass. On normal speed it doesn't pickup leaves very well so I wish it had a way to force it to high speed.

I have that model. I bought at the beginning of this season while it was on sale for $250 and the 500cfm blower with the 4ah battery. I have to say it's been great. I'm coming from a Honda 21" self propelled mower. The deck rusted out after 13 years of ownership. Since the Ryobi is really light and I don't have any hills I figured the push model was a better choice for me. I have two 50x150 lots I mow one with a house and one without and I can cut them both with the 2 batteries. Besides having to sharpen the blade often I really like it and hope it lasts several years. I'd recommend this mower to my friends.

Does anyone know if the 40v trimmer will go on sale? That's what I need next.

Back in the spring last years model was on clearance for $43. There was a huge thread about it. Also on clearance was the 40v blower, weed wacker/trimmer, and chain saw. I know it's not much of help but I would suggest wait till the new models come out or there is an end of season sale.

My take is periodically all the tools whit Lithium batteries in the package will go on sale as they don't have an indefinite shelf life without some kind of charge maintenance, so there will always be ~yearly sales.

Aside: Lithium batteries (like all kinds) have a self discharge. However if a Lithium gets too low it should not be recharged (the battery management chip in a well designed battery pack will prevent it) to prevent cell rupture/fire.

Having owned both models of the 40V trimmers, I'd say that the more expensive one with the removable shaft sucks. It rotates so slowly that it just doesn't cut well. The bump line feeder jams all the time. The cheaper model was actually better!

That being said, compared to the EGO 56V, they are both terrible after seeing my friends in action.

What about it sucks? I have the cheaper one too with the batt that runs parallel to the shaft and it has been great. The only things I dislike are the speed is a bit touchy and it's a bit heavy for longer jobs. The power head attachment has been great with a pole saw attachment.

Reviving old thread but $249 for self propell and $199 for push version at my home depot N. IL. I bought the self propel and had a pro extra coupon for 10 off 50. If your not a pro member I recommend joining.... Lots of little offers like this.

It's just slow rotating, so it doesn't trim as well as the other model. Also the line gets jammed a lot. For an attachment its not too bad. I have an edger attachment on mine and it works, but it does get stuck quite a bit. It's just not quite there yet.
