Was at my local Home Depot looking for the Ryobi pool vacuum and saw the 40v cultivator was on sale for $149, down from $249. This may be highly YMMV.

So my take on this. I have the small 40v lawn mower and if you have a decent size yard for a 3/2 single family house, one battery will not last. It was 2 full charges if I rushed. I also own a corded version of the cultivator that I bought to level a ground for an above ground swimming pool. Each session with that thing was 3 hours with 10 minute breaks inbetween. So I feel like it will be ok for light duties, definitely not for "normal" or "heavy" duties.

One more thing about the battery life, when you use the battery until is completely empty you can't put it right away in the charger, it needs a few minutes to cool down or it will display an error.

I have the mower, trimmer and blower, pretty happy with the trimmer and blower but now I have a bigger yard and had to switch the mower to something that can handle 1/2 acre

I'd love to jump in on this but checking online - there are no stock around Dallas.

Thanks OP! I was in the process of either renting one or buy just the tool attachment which is only 30 bucks less than this. Now I have a new battery, charger and power head.

I have the older version of this cultivator attachment that I use often in our vegetable gardens. It works great even on our clay soil with lots of little rocks. But mine says it's only for use with gas power heads, and it always feels like it's giving my 4-stroke power head a good workout.

I was surprised to see this new one bundled with a regular 40V power head that's not even brushless. Looking closer, it looks much less beefy than mine. I wonder if it still does as good a job. I wouldn't mind a lighter cultivator, but many of the reviews talking about mechanical failure aren't very encouraging.

100% not worth getting a battery version of this. You want either a gas powered version or a corded version.

Brickseek gives me the same thing, in stock and "clearance". Listed 4 and that's what was in my store. Southern LA (the state).

There was a deal posted for the Ryobi ONE+ pool vacuum for $99, which is what I was looking for. Brickseek said one store had 3, nope, and another "limited stock', strike two. A store 10 mi away is supposed to have it; not bothering.

I have that older "Expand-it" attachment too. I run it on the power head from my 40 volt trimmer (didn't see a label saying not to)and it works great. I don't think the 2.6 battery in this deal is enough for much satisfaction though. I use the 4.0 battery and can stir 8 10 x 15 raised beds down about 10 inches easily. Keep in mind that's not undisturbed hardpan.

I also have the old pole saw that works great with the battery head.

I had a craftsman setup like this with a gas head. Bought the 40v brushless system and used my old chraftsman tiller attachment (compatible). The beushless electric powerhead was more powerful than the gas.

So this is for the 40V cultivator, which I can't speak much towards. I am into the 40V Ryobi line, and I have the 40V tiller Expand-It attachment; only because I needed a tiller to break up the hard, dry ground here in north Texas. The cultivator is primarily useful for breaking up already loose material. If you are planning on using this to plow through hard, dry surfaces; you may as well invest into the tiller instead. It can get quite heavy, and there is some recoil at times; so not really for the weak or frail consumer.
