18V ONE+™ 12 IN. STRING TRIMMER WITH 2AH BATTERY & CHARGER is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 477.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfection, Power, Ease of Use I purchased this String Trimmer/Edger in April and have used it on my 1/3 acre lot surrounded by mature forest with weed line along edge of yard. No problem cutting tall weeds on edge of forest and edging could not be easier for a 65 year old. maintains straight cut and proper depth for my walks, patio, and driveway. Line advance works perfectly and have used very little line in the four times I have used this tool. Battery has plenty of power and have never run out of power while using to trim and edge. I will note when edging I run on low speed as that is all that is needed. Cudos to Ryobi team for a Perfect Tool! Have a Blessed Day Doug

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Almost Prefect... I bought this to replace a "Weedeater" trimmer whan the gas line disintagrated while I was using it. It was a little lighter--I could use it one-handed. This battery is heavier than the motor on the Weedeater. The Ryobi model advances the line automatically--another plus. The instructions state--to advance the line, release the trigger switch, wait 2-seconds and then press the trigger and the line will advance 1/4". So, I am using it and moving from area to area running it on slow so the line won't advance--but it does. It just KEEP GETTING LONGER THE LONGER I AM RUNNING IT ON SLOW. Customer Service's fix for this problem--DON'T RUN IT ON SLOW!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Grass, weeds, and small woody plants too! Just bought this last week and tried it out on grass and Scotch Broom - a woody pest bush, and it worked using the string trimmer going back and forth going from the top to the base of the plant. Bought the plastic spinning blade option and can't wait to give that a run - but it's raining now. Haven't tested the length for the battery but I have several so don't care too much about that. I have the 10 inch older model which does grass nicely but the bump feed doesn't really work. Weight is fine and using it seems second nature.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from hard working This string trimmer puts some serious work on my yard and is a big improvement from my previous single home DIY trimmer. It has great length and well balanced plus the 13 inch cutting radius helps a lot when trimming my yard. I also like the high/low power setting which gives you the option to use low power mode to save the battery life or high power to do make light work out of trimming the grass. The other good thing about this tool is the battery. I used one battery on the Ryobi string trimmer and blower and it worked to cover my 5000 sq ft lawn. Plus i can use the same battery on a multiple of other Ryobi tools.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from String jams up regularly. Dislike the autofeed Overall the product is fine for the price. The string does jam up on a regular basis, requiring me to open the base and adjust the coil to release the snag. I also really dislike the autofeed feature and not having control of the string being extended. This seems really wasteful as it activates it everything you pull and let go of the trigger.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Trimmer with Ample Power This is a great trimmer. I have no issues with power; the trimmer has cut everything I've needed it to. The only issue is battery life. This came with the small 2 amp battery, which is enough to do just under half my yard (1/3 acre). I have multiple batteries due to owning several other Ryobi tools, which means that I only have to switch the battery out so it hasn't been a real issue. That said, if you have a large yard and only the battery that comes with the trimmer, you may need to charge the battery a couple of times to finish. I would highly recommend buying an extra battery just in case.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything I need, great model. For the longest time I was using my B&D cordless and it finally died. So sad, but a great opportunity for me to FINALLY go out and get a RYOBI trimmer. I don't have a lot of grass area for trimming, so I only needed a GOOD basic model that would be powerful and reliable, doing the job properly. Well... this certainly was a GREAT surprise ! The unit is well balanced, light and easy to handle. The job is quick and I don't have to worry about old battery technology where I'm having to suffer through the battery slowly discharging. It had more than enough power (at 100% capacity throughout the trimming) to do the job! This POSITIVE experience will certainly have me reconsider my power-tool options and building my RYOBI inventory! Thanks RYOBI !

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Yet to prove itself I bought this because I could use the battery on my drill. I have tried to use it three times now, and it has only completed the job once. This is the second unit....I took the first one back to Home Depot because the battery would not charge. I live in a condo with a small yard (takes 3 minutes to mow the front), so we aren't talking about a huge job here. Overall not too impressed.
