When I reviewed RYOBI’s 24 v outdoor power tools, people liked them very much. Now they have released bigger brothers to the last year’s models –40v monsters. Back it is described as the “perfect” experience of 24 v string Ryobi cordless trimmer – and eventually to be not very picky and find any of the flaws in the operation and the design. It is made up very well and looks very attractive to many people who are making use of this are happy with the quality and you can be one of them.
You will find some of the issues although, however, none were very big enough that will stop you in giving it the top accolades; and mere some small annoyances– so was the RYOBI can keep the things perfect when taking care of the small issues, and did they make the mistake of trying and fixing what was not broken? Like before, RYOBI 40 v String Ryobi cordless trimmer is actually made by the Homelite under RYOBI name, as such this uses same bright green color, which is associated with RYOBI name. Perhaps it sounds very silly, but I like bright green more than any colors of other tools –particularly for the outdoor tools. It’s just the personal preference and is not reflected in the final rating. One thing that is same is nobody else in the house appears to know how the string Ryobi cordless trimmer works –while it is as easy as the electric one –that has left to be one doing all trimming yet again.
Let us delve into what is very different? For the starters, robust 40 v battery is the huge improvement over old 24 v model. Now with one that you have seen last year, and can do small yard (and remember it took over 45minutes to do) on a charge, however, couldn’t do more. With the ramped up battery, and you need to ramp up yard size – and taking this from urban city yard and rural yard of in-laws, the respectable 3 quarters of an acre in the size. You know overall larger size does not mean that a lot of weeds that you cannot get with the lawnmower – right? Their whole lawn is been surrounded by the fence that the mower cannot get under. Top this with the garden island in the middle of the backyard and shed and the swing set for grandkids, as well as you may see that you have a lot to make you busy.
You can run 40 v String Ryobi cordless trimmer for over 90minutes before switching it to other battery that will impress you. Not just that, however, you will not complain about this getting heavy whole time despite a fact that batteries are heavier than 24 v ones (appears common sense). There are some different things you will feel can cause it to happen – and one needs to do with the better weight distribution. This 24 v model was very decently sized, however it wasn’t balanced very well when the battery was been inserted. This 40v model is a good deal longer and has weight spread better. The second reason that you think you did not notice increased weight, is as battery holster is rightly positioned and you may rest the elbow on it when running a Ryobi cordless trimmer. You might not totally be sure if it was intentional, however that takes the most weight off of the wrists and puts this on the biceps or triceps – the muscle groups designed for the workout than the wrists. There’s the place on a Ryobi cordless trimmer to hook the shoulder strap, however, one is not included for a few reason –you do not know how much effect it will have on more reducing the weight strain, however, it probably will not hurt. Last difference you will notice trigger is now the safety trigger and requiring you pull the trigger on a bottom and at a top of handle at the same time. It makes this Ryobi cordless trimmer a little safer if you forget to put this away while done with that.
Still, there are some other features that stay unchanged from 24 v version. The things like a fact that you don’t need to “bump” a bottom of a string Ryobi cordless trimmer to get the string out as well as simple switch from the Ryobi cordless trimmer to the edger are there like the last time. These were good in 24 v version, thus they did not remove this for no reason. Whereas the overall size of 40 v Ryobi cordless trimmer is much bigger than 24 v one, still it splits apart in a middle for simple transport as well as storage. String Ryobi cordless trimmer has the nice and quick disconnect – just some turns and this all will be taken care. There’s one thing that is mainly unchanged that is a charger. It may have the different shape for handling larger 40 v battery, however, it takes a ridiculously short period of time charge the battery from the dead to full – and they say 90 minutes, however, in my experience, this took more seventy. Just before, it is perfect for the experience I had with the string Ryobi cordless trimmer –now it is much bigger, worse a well as longer lasting than before. Thus, this is one of the best trimmers that you will find in the market with best quality and range.
Pros: Still very quiet with relation to other Ryobi cordless trimmer, wich are out there; Every con that I listed on 24 v version is totally taken care; Lasts longer than 24 v model that makes this perfect in case you have the larger yard that you can take care
Cons: Honestly I cannot list single con with the model –this works good (that is more than that I have said for other product); They put place to hook the shoulder strap, however, do not include one for the use for a few strange reason
