Operator’s Manual

What is the best way to cut weeds and grass using my string trimmer?

  • Keep your string trimmer tilted toward the area being cut
  • Pass the unit from left to right (if using a curved shaft string trimmer) and from right to left (if using a straight shaft string trimmer). By following these directional cutting paths, you will avoid having debris and grass clippings from being directed back at yourself.
  • Use the top of the line to do the cutting. Do not force the string head into uncut grass; this could cause the trimmer to bog down.
  • Avoid trees, shrubs wire and picket fences.

How do I attach the grass deflector on my RYOBI Cordless String Trimmer?

  • Remove the battery.
  • Remove the plastic hardware bag from the grass deflector.
  • Fit the grass deflector over the string head.
  • Line up the screw holes in the grass deflector with the holes in the motor housing.
  • Install supplied screws and tighten by turning clockwise with a phillips screwdriver.

How do I start and stop my RYOBI Cordless String Trimmer?

To Start:

  • Press and hold the lock-out button.
  • Depress the switch trigger

To Stop:

  • Release the switch trigger to stop the string trimmer.
  • Upon release of the switch trigger, the lock-out button will automatically reset to the locked position.

How do I advance the line on my RYOBI Cordless String Trimmer?

NOTE: Your RYOBI Cordless String Trimmer is equipped with an auto-feed head. Bumping the head to try to advance the line will damage the trimmer and void the warranty.

  • With the trimmer running, release the switch trigger.
  • Wait two seconds, and press the switch trigger again.

NOTE: The line will extend approximately ¼ in. with each stop and start of the switch trigger until the line reaches the length of the cut-off blade.

  • Resume trimming.

How do I manually advance the line on my RYOBI Cordless String Trimmer?

  • Remove the battery.
  • Push the black button located on the string head while pulling on the line to manually advance the line.

How do I switch from trimming to edging on my RYOBI 24V or 40V String Trimmer?

  • Remove the battery pack.
  • Step down on the foot pedal.
  • Rotate the trimmer head counterclockwise placing the tool in the edger position.

  • Remove the battery pack.
  • Push in tabs on side of spool retainer.
  • Pull spool retainer up to remove.
  • Remove the old spool.
  • To install the new spool, make sure the line is captured in the slot on the new spool. Make sure the end of the line is extended approximately 5 in. beyond the slot.
  • Install the new spool so that the line and slot align with the eyelet in the string head. Thread the line into the eyelet.
  • Pull the line extending from the string head so the line releases from the slot in the spool. Reinstall the spool retainer by dressing tabs into slots and pushing down until spool retainer clicks into place.
