I paid $99 for a Ryobi RY30530 string trimmer at Residence Depot. The primary motive I picked it was that I did not need a wimpy electrical mannequin and the highest of the road trimmers have been greater than I wished to pay.
There have been 5 or 6 components to assemble however it was straightforward and I did not want to make use of the instruction e-book. It began simply and it labored advantageous for about 5 minutes when the “bump head” stop working. I took it aside and the tangle of string was not going to be a straightforward repair. Fortunately the trimmer got here with a free mounted line trim head. I put that on and was again in enterprise a couple of minutes later. The string may be very straightforward to insert within the mounted line head. When you get this trimmer, do your self a favor and put the bump head straight into the rubbish and set up the mounted line head.
I chosen the curved shaft mannequin and the shaft was just a little brief for me. The 30 cc 2 cycle engine is actually highly effective sufficient for house use. It has all the time began simply for me. The engine is louder than my earlier mannequin and it harm my ears on full pace. The facility and noise of this trimmer makes ear and eye safety important. I’ve ignored security precautions with much less highly effective trimmers however I would not try this with this machine. The plastic the place the shaft meets the motor will get very popular and gave my arm a gentle burn. The instructions say to not squeeze the set off when beginning the engine, however that’s the solely approach I might get it to begin when it’s scorching. This isn’t an issue when you recognize the trick.
There may be an choice so as to add attachments like a blower, edger, and cultivator; nonetheless I’ve not tried these but.
Total the Ryobi RY30530 is a good worth for the cash. I’m going to watch out to not burn my arm on the motor attachment level. I want Robi would make the engine quieter and the shaft a number of inches longer. I’d most likely get the straight shaft if I received one other one among these.
