Based on previous comments for previous deals in this trimmer, the consensus seems to be that this is a very weak trimmer. Don't expect much from it. Ryobi has some other models that have a little more power that might be better for you. Generally speaking,Ryobi trimmers don't have good reviews, the self feeding mechanism seems to get lots of bad reviews and spools are pricey. Heads are not interchangeable on lower end models

Anyone have insight on the trimmer? 40 seems like a pretty good price, especially since I currently use a corded 15 yr old trimmer to get the job done at my house.

As somebody who's owned a Ryobi for two years, yes, the self-feeding mechanism is crap!
It was a house-warming gift though...

I just picked up the trimmer/blower combo on sale a few weeks ago. And yes, you do go through the trimmer string quick. I want to say the trimmer spools are $20, for 4 at the depot. I ended up wrapping my own. The width was .65 if you are looking. I had a black and decker trimmer where the batteries were not lasting so I replaced it with ryobi. It's an upgrade for me. Although it might me a little short. Would I get get again-probably, but maybe a taller unit.

Yes, i have this trimmer as well. The self feeding mechanism is crap. I usually get the spools on Amazon for $10.50 for a 3pk.

I've had a total of three 18-volt Ryobi trimmers. The first two were extremely weak although the larger batteries helped. But, the third, which was the brushless version has been phenomenal.

So I want one of these little battery operated half-sized trimmers for touching up when I don't feel like dragging out my big full-size m18 Milwaukee string trimmer. I'd buy a Milwaukee version of this trimmer if they sold one because I already have lots of m18 and m12 batteries. Sadly they don't sell one. Is this about as good as your gonna get for about $50?

Spools are pricey but very easy to rewind with new string. I bought one three-pack of Ryobi spools and just rewind them with bulk trimmer string when they run out.

I only need a trimmer for small touch up spots. Shouldn't I just spend $20 more and get the blower and larger battery? Any help would be appreciated.

I have used this trimmer for a couple years without issue. I finally had to replace the spool this year and have not had issues yet. It seems plenty powerful enough for what I do. If this does not have enough power for you, I'm wondering if you are using it for its intended purpose. Trim grass. It's not for cutting down trees or plants! It is very light. With a larger battery it last plenty long for our yard. I'm getting a second for 39 just to have a backup. Thanks OP!

Yes, based upon your description of need... I have the trimmer for a specific purpose and only need it for light close work in a garden. The four cycle monster is vicious in those close quarters... The blower for 20 bucks and a larger battery. Go for it.

I bought the 18v Ryobi trimmer, blower, hedge trimmer combo when it went on sale a while back. Of the three, the only thing I use is the hedge trimmer. Blower and grass trimmer are very weak. It takes twice as long to trim anything. The blower started malfunctioning and now is twice as loud and half as much power. Both are absolute garbage.
