Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful I had been using a small gas trimmer that wasn't really strong enough. When I first tried this trimmer I was blown away. This will make my life a lot easier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Battery powered I bought this battery operated weedeater and I’m so glad that I did. It’s made getting the job done faster and easier. Restringing Has been simplified as long as you read the instructions first. lol I’m so happy that I made this purchase. As a retired grandmother I am able to use this weedeater with no problem at all. Previous weedeater was electric and what a pain to make sure the cord was always long enough, didn’t get wrapped up, etc.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Oopsie, last review was for a different tool My last review was for the RYOBI 40-Volt VacAttack Lithium-Ion Cordless Leaf Vacuum Mulcher. But this thing rocks too

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This thing sucks! This is the best leaf picker-upper I tell you what, and certainly easier than raking or blowing. Just like running a vacuum cleaner over the yard. But the mulcher is what clinched the deal. It creates all this shredded carbon to add to the compost pile which will turn into some sweet sweet planting material next year. With added nitrogen material of course ;)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quiet! Powerful! I purchased this to replace my 2-cycle unit. I find this trimmer easier to use and more powerful than the 2-cycle unit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Tool: Ryobi 40VX GEN Trimmer I purchased this wonderful, highly useful trimmer on 10/08/2022. It has met all of my expectations and is so easy to use and it is very powerful. I have several other Ryobi tools and I can truly say that Ryobi continues to improve on its products and to introduce more powerful tools over the years, which I greatly appreciate. Please keep up the good work and excellent products Ryobi!!!
