electric string trimmer – Ryobi 2017

The RYOBI P2060 is a uniquely designed electric string trimmer with a lot of great features. It has a durable plastic and metal design, which makes it a lightweight tool, weighing in at 6.65 pounds. It has just the right amount of heft to give it a sturdy feel without putting strain on your body. This is an adjustable, cordless trimmer that starts quickly and is easy to use. It has plenty of power to plow through heavy weeds and edge or trim all types of grass. Its overall functionality makes it one of the best electric trimmers out there, worthy of our Top Ten Reviews Silver Award.

Trimmer Design

This trimmer is designed with economy in mind. It has a minimalistic design that makes good use of its features. Instead of a head that rotates for edging, as many of the products in our string trimmer reviews do, the shaft rotates 180 degrees so you can hold it comfortably for edging. The head rotates up and down to position it for edging. The edge guard helps you keep the trimmer on track while edging, serving essentially the same function as wheels. While it doesn???t give you the same kind of control that you get from a trimmer with a rotating head and wheels, it works well.

The shaft extends for people of different heights, so most people will find a comfortable length for them. The handle also adjusts so you can find just the right angle to weed comfortably.

This 18-volt trimmer has plenty of power to clear away all types of weeds and excess grass in your yard. The 18-volt battery is on the low end of power compared to other cordless trimmers in our lineup, which mostly have 40-volt batteries. If you try them side by side, you will feel a small difference in power, but they will perform similarly. The battery charges fully in just one hour and has a long life.

As one of the products in the ONE+ line of products, the RYOBI string trimmer shares an interchangeable battery with all of the products in that line. If you run out of power in the middle of a job and own multiple ONE+ products, you can switch out the battery to finish the job.

The string is adjustable to different lengths, either 10 or 12 inches, depending on the type of weeds and grass you have. This unique feature makes this trimmer a versatile tool. Plus, the option of extending to 10 inches will extend the battery life by putting less strain on the device. This feature also allows you to trim and cut different types of terrain.

Power & Battery

If you are trimming a narrow strip of lawn between the sidewalk and the fence, for instance, having the option of a shorter cutting path will come in handy. Having a max swath of 12 inches is below average when compared to other trimmers in our lineup. However, 12 inches is plenty of line for most tasks. The line feeds automatically from the handle, so you won???t have to mess around with the cap until you need to replace the spool.

This trimmer comes with a three-year warranty, which is standard. You can download a comprehensive PDF manual online that will answers many questions you may have about how to use the product, its parts and functionality. The company’s website is informative and useful. If you have additional questions, RYOBI???s customer service department is available via phone or email.

The RYOBI P2060 is great trimmer with a unique design and all the functionality you need to weed, trim and edge your yard. The 18-volt battery will provide plenty of power to get the job done.
