Does this use the same batteries as the drills?

How does this compare to Ryobi one plus 18V tools? I am looking to buy trimmer edger blower combo.

I have this and have been using it for a few years. It works pretty well and does have the guide wheel for edging.

The string advance never works for me and I end up manually having to flip it over to pull string. Battery life has held up decent and I can edge my sidewalks and trim my 1/4 acre yard in one charge.

I paid around the same a few years ago on a Target clearance and would recommend at this price if you're a Green works fan and/or looking for battery options vs gas.

For either this or the Ryboi, these will be fairly light-duty garden equipment. Both Ryobi and Greenworks make heavier-duty versions. Ryboi has a 40V line and Green has various models up to the 80V which are serious beasts. The GW 80 Also much heavier and more expensive.

For the trimmer, this has "12 inch cut path with .065 single line auto feed for easy line advance." 0.065 is the lowest-end thinnest line, so it's for trimming new light grass growth like along a path or driveway. All other low-end models like Ryobi and B&D also will use the 0.065 line. it's not good for heavy weeds and undergrowth.

The next step up gives you 0.080 which is quite a bit stronger and tougher. They reason they don't put those on the little trimmers is that they need more motor power (and also more battery usage) to effectively spin that heavier line without bogging down the motor.

Once you get to the higher-end you can find 0.105 line or even 0.120.

This is a very good price with battery included (battery normally worth about this much alone.) In general I've been pleased with the GW stuff, both low and high-end. But I wouldn't get into their low-end as a start. (I already had some tools in that line). If you already have a lot of Ryobi stuff you might stick with that if you just want a light-duty trimmer and blower.

I have this. It has a wheel and everything. It is a good one if your yard is not too big. But what is bad about this product is the price of an extra battery if you need one. My battery wouldn't last my backyard(30ft x 60ft). Last time I checked 2ah battery alone was about $70.

On the other hand, you can get 2 x 4ah ryobi 18v batteries + a free tool during promotion for 100.

Tool is good. Battery is too expensive. I will never buy again.

Since mine is aging now. I bought a dewalt(sd-$50) and bought 2 off-brand 6ah batteries for $55. Charger was another 22. That is dewalt trimmer + 2x 6ah batteries + charger for $125

If you have a very small area that never gets thick, then this will be suitable. I could only imagine how frustrating that edger would be for me. For a typical yard, you have to step up to 60V-80V machines to have correctly sized tools.

So far I'm loving Greenworks cordless products. Got a trimmer and just got a lawn mower that both work greatly. Problem is the batteries don't last long for the mower so will need to get another but it charges somewhat quickly. Will definitely buy more of their tools.

I wonder if you can replace the trimmer head w/ an aftermarket one. I have a corded Greenworks trimmer where the push function broke off and I replaced it with a rhino (I think..it was a brand at home depot) trimmer head. They had an autofeed head, a push head, and one with three slots where you feed about a foot of line and bend it, so it's like you have 6 strings cutting at the same time. The last one is the one I got and the difference was night and day compared to the original head, so much better.

Edit: The aftermarket head also takes .080 line instead of the wimpy .065 line

in general 24V seems better than 18V

I have the 40V version. It has a lot of bad reviews because of the line feed. According to the manual the line feed doesn't work at top speed. They recommend repeatedly pulling the trigger, feathering the speed, to get it to feed. Works for me.
I have no problem finishing the perimeter grass my lawnmower misses, but I wouldn't use the 24V version to try and clear out a large area of weeds, at least not regularly.

How bad do you people let your yard get if you're saying this wouldn't work for a normal yard?
