18V RYOBI Cultivator

Posted by Dad Knows Best on 07/02/2015 at 10:56 AM in Lawncare

The 18V RYOBI Cultivator was a great tool to turn over my raised garden beds.

It is light weight but with all the power I needed. I found it very easy to maneuver in the corners and along the sides closely.

It is handy for weeding in gardens or flower beds because you can get close to the plants without damaging them.

I was able to dig down in and mix up the dirt to allow water and nutrients to get down in the soil. I was pleasantly surprised by the long battery life.

I turned over my raised garden beds and looked down to find 4 full bars of battery life left!

The 18V RYOBI Cultivator is great for gardens and especially great to get around small spaces!

Expand-It Attachments for the 40V-X Trimmer

The RYOBI 40v Expand-it Tool Attachments are awesome!

I didn’t realize how convenient it would be to have the ability to do more than trim with my 40V-X RYOBI Trimmer.

The attachments are very easy to connect and switch from one tool to the next. You simply loosen the clap and slide the tool on till it snaps in.

With the click of a button you are able to take off one tool and put a new one on.

This transforms one tool into several to use for many applications.

This feature saves storage space which is so great!

Expand-It Edger Attachment

Posted by Dad Knows Best on 06/23/2015 at 10:17 AM in Lawncare

My sidewalk has been in for over 20 years and has never been edged.

I used my RYOBI 40v Expand-it Edger attachment and wow did it do a great job!

I just ran the edger down along the sidewalk and the job was done with very little effort.

It looks excellent with a crisp edge now.

I then popped the edger off and snapped the RYOBI 40v Expand-it blower attachment on to blow the grass clippings off the sidewalk.

I love the versatility in the attachments that allows me to get many jobs done all with one tool!

These are great tools to use and my yard looks fantastic!

RYOBI Lawn Mower

I absolutely love my RYOBI 40V lawn mower!!! The 40V RYOBI Brushless Lawn Mower was very impressive! It is so easy to start with just the push of a button, light weight, and easy to push. It is also very quiet which is unique in a lawn mower.

I really like the one lever deck adjustment which allows you to raise or lower from 1 1/2in. to 3 1/2in. height. It has great battery life! I did my lawn at camp with only one battery but it’s nice having an extra battery on board just in case.

The handle is quick and easy to fold down for transporting or small storage places. It is nice not to have to worry about gas or the mess from fluid leaking during storage or transport.

RYOBI 18V ONE+ String Trimmer

Posted by Dad Knows Best on 06/11/2015 at 11:54 AM in Lawncare, Tutorials

The 18V RYOBI One+ String Trimmer is light weight and easy to use! It has excellent battery run time.

The adjustable head makes it easy to get into hard to reach places like under the camper and around the awning poles.

When using the 18V One+ String Trimmer the guard did a good job of keeping the grass from flying all over me. It’s nice to finish a job and not have your legs covered in grass!

The trimmer can also be shortened and the handle folds down to make it easy to store in small spaces.

We use this at our campsite because it is so easy to store and light weight to carry around.

We love using this trimmer at camp!
