2023.06.09 08:08 xWolfGuardianx R01201 String Trimmer compatible attachments

I just picked up the string trimmer, and it turns out that this is a power head, and string trimmer attachment. So now I was wondering what brands of attachments will fit.
I'm thinking that instead of buying a new hedge trimmer I could just find a compatible attachment head to save room in the shed.
I have always considered the Stihl power brush or the Echo Power Paddle, but I was wondering if the Ryobi or Milwaulkee attachments would fit as well (to save a couple bucks).
Thanks in advance!

2023.06.09 04:58 BravoFive141 Ryobi vs Husqvarna vs Echo for battery equipment?

Hello all,
I'm looking for some recommendations/reviews on what to move forward with as I start to transition my lawn equipment from gas to electric. Also, I figure it may help me to list things out and then step back and review everything.
For clarification, we live in Florida and have a fairly small yard. I'm not sure of the exact size, but Zillow says our lot is 4,255 square ft. Currently using the following equipment:
I'm fairly satisfied with the mower. It's only about 2 years old, and I can usually get the front yard and most of the back yard finished on one charge depending on when the last mow was. I'm not too picky about recharging, as it gives me a chance to take a lunch break and get out of the heat for a bit while the battery is recharging. I'm not in a rush for a new mower, but I wouldn't mind upgrading eventually depending on what brand I select for the other equipment.
The leaf blower and edger are good, but battery life leaves a bit more to be desired. On an 18v 4ah battery, I'm lucky to get 15-20 minutes of use. Strangely, the hedge trimmer seems to get a much better battery life on the same battery, so my only guess is that the hedge trimmer is less battery-intensive.
I've had zero problems with the Echo string trimmer aside from always having to pull 3-4 times, choke, then pull 1-2 more times to start it. Admittedly, I've had it for 6+ years and never cleaned the air filteanything else on it, so that's probably my own fault.
I've been debating switching to fully electric equipment as it's just easier to operate for myself and my wife and less hassle with mixing fuel. I'm just having trouble deciding between a few brands/equipment.
Obviously, Ryobi would be easiest to stay with since I already have a decent amount of Ryobi equipment. Most of my tools and lawn equipment are Ryobi. That being said, I feel like I see more about the Ryobi string trimmers not being that great.
The Echo battery string trimmer seems great, and I've had a positive experience with Echo for many years. Only downsides for me would be that I'm not a big fan of the look of their leaf blower, and the string trimmer doesn't seem to be as powerful as some others out there. It'd probably get the job done fine for our yard though, and it pretty much checks off everything I'm looking for (Decent battery size/run time, no foldable/attachment-ready pole, and easy to change trimmer head).
Husqvarna also seems to be a strong contender. String trimmer seems to be pretty decent based on some YouTube videos, and the blower looks nice and is supposedly one of the most powerful battery blowers on the market. Also, all of their equipment apparently has an active cooling system. I'm not sure if that's more of a gimmick than anything useful, but being in Florida, I'd like to imagine it would help. The downside is that I can't seem to find much real-world information on Husqvarna battery equipment.
I was considering Ego, but after seeing a lot of negative reviews on battery life/fires and the Line IQ system on the string trimmers, I'm just not that impressed.
I'd love to get some input from those who may already have some of this equipment. Thanks in advance!

2023.06.09 01:42 essaitchthrowaway3 Long shot: how to use Ryobi battery with Snapper 60V mower?

I know this is going to be a long shot, but I figured someone in here might have some insight into this.
Ok, so long story short, someone was throwing out a 60V Snapper mower. Just the mower, no battery. I snapped it up and figured at the very least I could use it for parts since I like to DIY things. That was last year.
Fast-forward to this week, my old Toro mower died. It had a good life but it finally crossed the rainbow bridge. Ok so now I'm in a position where I have this Snapper mower but no idea if it runs but I have a bunch of Ryobi batteries (tons of the 18V ones and a single 40v one).
Even if it's just to see how well this mower works, is there an easy-ish way for me to power it using my Ryobi batteries? I know there are adapters to go from a few different battery brands to different tool brands, but Snapper isn't exactly all that popular so I couldn't find one. I also have no problems 3D printing the housing, especially if it's just for testing purposes, but I'm more concerned about the electronicals. I rather not release the smoke from my Ryobi batteries.
I know some of you guys like to DIY stuff so any help would be appreciated.

2023.06.07 19:54 notMyRealNameObvious First Timer - Ambitious Garage and Shed

Hi everyone, hoping for any and all advice for making my Garage and Shed solar in Rural Canada.
In terms of power requirements, I'm going to be starting small with lots of LED lights for both inside and outside the shed, charging stations for ryobi tools (40V and 18v), and outlets for other power tools like handsaws and sanders. Ideally though, in the future I'd want to be able to more electrical things like a mini computer, fridge, and maybe even a TV. So ideally I want a system that's going to be easily upgradable.
I'm either very bad at googling, or solar panels in Canada are ridiculously overpriced (Canada vs US equivalent) although yes I know that buying from a retailer instead of direct will include some markups.
I'm thinking of getting two of those 600 watt off grid panel kits so that even in Winter when there's about 4 hours of sunlight I'm getting a decent charge.

For an inverter, my basic understanding tells me that a pure sine inverter wouldn't make a different for my needs so I'm thinking of going with a modified sine wave inverter similar to this.
For a battery, I haven't decided yet. With winters dropping almost to -40C, I'm leaning towards LiFePO in an insulated box and possibly with a heating pad as well.
I don't pretend to fully understand this all, I'm learning as I go and think this will be a great DIY project. Any and all advice or criticisms are welcome.

2023.06.07 05:20 Aerisaki 18v vs 40v chainsaw

Im considering the ryobi 12 inch 18v chainsaw and was wondering if for whatever reasons may come in the future, is it possible to use a 14 or even a 16 inch bar on it or will the 40v absolutely be required for those sizes?
I am most invested in the 18v batteries and do not wish to add a new battery type if i can avoid it

2023.06.06 21:19 oknidius Any leaf vac/mulcher rumours?

My old corded leaf vac gave up. Looking to replace with battery powered.
I know EGO is great at releasing the same mower, blower, string trimmer and snow blower every 8 months with incremental improvements.
But has anyone heard any grapevine rumours about developing or releasing a leaf vac/mulcher?
If not, I guess I'll go Ryobi or Worx.
Thanks for any rumours you may have heard!

2023.06.06 03:02 DogNamedCharlie Ryobi 30" vs. EGO 21"

After about 7 years, my Toro front wheel snapped off the deck and it is making it a PITA to mow. It is attached by axle, but there is no height control. My wife also says she wants more room the garage, she complains about gas smell, and I wouldn't mind something quieter.
Seeing how the E-mowers stow and other attributes that I like, I am looking at two different walk behinds that are vastly different.
1) EGO lm2156sp MSRP $850, onsale $700
2) Ryobi 30" Walk behind 80v RYPM8001 - MSRP $2,000, includes $3-400 Ryobi blower + trimmer.
I like the idea of mowing about the 50% more in each pass. Though I am concerned as I see Ryobi has no IPX rating, while many other companies like EGO & Greenworks do. Both of these have 5 year battery warranties, though Ryobi has a lot of different battery voltages, while it seems EGO is all about the 56V. I do have a Ryobi gas trimmer and a couple different attachments and it is about 2 years old and my old one lasted longer than any mower, I only tossed it as ethanol ate up the fuel pickup line. The 80V seems like a double edge sword, more powerful motor, but the current MSRP is more than the EGO. Though I hope 3rd party or refurb/recelled batteries will be around in the future and maybe the price will drop.
I only have a 1/3 of an acre, it is mostly flat, with the exception of a burm in the back. I have a few trees I go around. The ground is made bumpy by the winters. I don't know how much time a 30" will save me, but I think it seems cool, but a bit unproven.
Granted I view either option as cheaper than having someone else mow for me.

2023.06.05 04:53 Loader452 How the heck do you sharpen this brush trimmer blade?

I recently got the Ryobi brush trimmer attachment. It's a 3 "bladed" metal trimmer head. The blades come with the edges basically squared off. I thought this was odd, but guessed that maybe the "sharp" corners could cut, and allow for cutting of bigger stuff by biting like the teeth of a chainsaw.
I've used it a little bit, it does pretty well, but seemed to get dull, and lose some efficiency.
It's pretty tempting to make the blades truly sharp like an axe or mower blades. I could also re-square off the edges, maybe use a rounded file?
Anyone know what to do?

40v chainsaw, get chain sharpened right out of box?
Just bought this chainsaw. It seemed like it was burning through the wood, not really cutting. Should I get it professionally sharpened or do myself (Ace is $13 to sharpen on it)
Seemed like it was running slow (compared to a gas one and also a neighbor's Kobalt one). It has a full charge

2023.06.04 19:01 TheGeekFreek Adapting Garage-door Accessory to 18 or 40v?

Getting ready to move and will have to leave my Ryobi garage door system in the old house.
Wondering if the Fan accessory can be adapted to use the Ryobi 18v or 40v batteries. Or even just an AC plug.
Not sure what the fan is rated for and can’t find a pinout of the plug. Hoping something out there already exists but didn’t have any luck finding it.

2023.06.04 05:39 cutlass484 Rigid String Trimmer Runtime/Overheating

What is your experience with the new string trimmer?
I have used both the 6ah Octane and Maxoutput batteries. I can get 15 min or so before the trimmer shuts down/over heats. If I wait a couple minutes it'll start it back up and run for another 2 to 3 minutes before over heating and shutting down. I'm having to use my Ridgid jobsite blower to blow air in the vents to speed up the cold down time.
I use the lowest setting and try not to press the trigger all the way down.
I left a negative review on the HD website. Ridgid responded and told me to email them. They sent me a replacement and I'm still having the same issue.
I'm considering the ryobi 40volt trimmers with a 72 minute runtime but I am a loyal Ridgid customer and have lots of batteries.
I'll probably just have to deal with it. But I do love this trimmer. It's definitely powerful.
Side note: I saw a video with a guy that modded his ryobi trimmer. He purchased another fan blade (the same one that is installed in the trimmer) and attached it to the existing fan blade so that it blows air in another direction towards the controller and he is able to sustain long run times until his battery is drained.

2023.06.04 00:15 CrackaJakes Older 40v lawnmower only takes low profile battery — has anyone retrofit to accept new thicker profile batteries?

I own an older 40v self propelled mower - along with a host of other ryobi lawn products. Over the years, I’ve collected a handful of batteries but have been mainly buying the new 6ah with a thicker profile. While they work in almost everything, they don’t work in my lawn lower — and the last of my low profile batteries just died and is no longer under warranty.
Any suggestions on retrofitting? I’m contemplating opening it up, but the insert is essentially the entire cover. I pulled the connecting clip in hopes it would have extra wire to pull it a bit, but no such luck.

2023.06.02 19:43 silver9ings Leaf Blower suggestions

Hello, I'm interested in suggestions for a good Ryobi leaf blower from DTO or HD. Currently have a EGO leaf blower 56v 480CFM, purchased in 2018 from HD but the battery just died. While we loved the leaf blower, the battery costs as much as a new one! We have slowly switched over to the Ryobi setup over the last year 18v 2ah + 4ah power tools and 40v 6ah brushless lawn mower. The lawn is a little shy of 5000sq ft. Thanks!

2023.06.02 09:40 Pelvur Ryobi lawn mower acts weird after some years, how to repair?

I have a 20in 40V brushless battery powered Ryobi mower that I bought in Home Depot back in 2015.
I have a weird issue with the mower where if it turns down while mowing (e.g. grass is too tough), it cannot be restarted with the buttons (the ones on the handle) until I take the battery out and reinsert. It did not have this behavior for the first 6 years or so.
If I stop the mower myself, then it can be restarted with buttons with no issue
I have two batteries and both behave the same so I think it is not a battery issue. I also have a trimmer which works just fine with the same batteries.

Can someone give me a hint what an issue could be and how I might be able to fix it.

Need to replace my batteries - is it worth the hustle?
I bought about 3-4 years ago Greenworks Lawn Mower, Model: MO40L01...
... and 2 batteries 40V 2.5Ah model: 2901319


Now I can't finish the front yard with these two batteries 🤬
  1. I would like to replace the batteries with the bigger one, 4Ah or 5Ah but can't figure out the number.
  2. I was also thinking to buy string trimmer with the same big battery, to have two - do they sell the trimmer with big batteries?
  3. There are Chinese knock-offs half the price - any experience whit these?
  4. Is the GreenWorks the brand I can trust that even 10-15 years down the road I'll be able to buy new battery for my old lawn mower? If I have to buy new mower every couple years because I can't find the right batteries - I'm gong back to gas mowers 😡
  5. Maybe I killed the batteries: I couldn't find the info if I can keep the batteries charging over the night? I know some gadgets, once full, will "disconnect" themselves and no harm done. But I also remember older laptops that the manufacturers STRONGLY not suggested to keep it plugged in after the battery is fully charged.
Thanks for any help, ammtar

2023.06.01 02:28 oknidius Bristle brush sweeper: works well with 40V brushless power head?

Couldn't find this addressed previously.
I currently have the Ryobi Expand It Sweeper (bristle brush) attachment and the DeWalt 60V DCST972 Powerhead. The Dewalt powers the bristle brush really well.
Wondering if the Ryobi 40V brushless Powerhead can power the sweeper attachment well? Videos online appear split on the topic. I played with the string trimmer version the other day and the Ryobi powerheads felt really cheap and flimsy compared to the Dewalt.
Reason I ask is: I only have one DeWalt Flexvolt battery. I don't plan on getting any more Dewalt Flexvolt tools (even though DeWalt is releasing a single stage Flexvolt snow thrower later this year).
To do my whole lawn (surface / shallow depth dethatcherake) or driveway (snow), I would need one more Flexvolt 9AH battery. Looking at the price of Flexvolt batteries, I'm almost better off getting the Ryobi snow shovel kit. For a slightly higher price, instead of just one more DeWalt battery I'd have one more Ryobi 40V 4AH battery (already have 2 x 4AH and 1 x 6AH), a Powerhead and a snow thrower.
But considering how flimsy the Ryobi powerhead felt, I'm having doubts as to its performance with a power hungry attachment like the sweeper.
