This Ryobi trimmer was just the one I was looking for. My previous trimmer died in the hands of my neighbor when trying to fix something in it. The Ryobi expand-it trimmer was just the perfect substitute for my old and heavy trimmer. More powerful than my old one and very lightweight. At 13 pounds is just very easy to use it for longer periods. This was a great relief for me and my back because when I was using my old trimmer I end up with a lot of pain in my back and arms, like finishing a weightlifting workout. The free attachment that comes in the package is a great gift that cuts the work time to half. The cutting is great and the power also excellent. The gas last longer and the starting is just so easy. Of all the things that I love from this trimmer one is my favorite, is the expand-it attachment system that convert the trimmer to other six power tools that makes easy to invest a little bit more and have another tool for the fraction of the cost. This is a great investment, for me Ryobi is quality, I never had any problem with it, and don’t expect to have any in the future.
