This must be the cheapest petrol strimmer on the net, add to that you are getting the attachment that turns this in to petrol hedge trimmer. I think this is an incredible bargain.

Voted Hot and great 1st post.

Will def consider this.

Bargin, I have one and paid £90 for them, which I thought was cheap! Use them a lot, bargin!

Ordered. Thanks for posting.

Great 1st post and a crazy price that deserves more heat! Many thanks.

Some people are probably posting cold as they don't realise what the item is. They probably have seen cheap ones from B&Q for £20 and thought this is expensive. Which is fair enough but I wish they had not voted cold as it would not end up in the hot section and lots of people that want one of these would miss out on an incredible price.

To the guys that ordered I hope you enjoy the item when you get it, I already know what I will be destroying tomorrow night with it.

Hot price... was about to order till I noticed it didn't say "TouchStart"... This "StartEasy" is still a pull-cord type - not a battery driven push button start like the RLT30CET (which I want so the wife has no excuse).

Lol like the comment pgregg. I prefer the pull-type makes me feel like a man, a bit like Tim Allen UUUUGGGHHH

I'm after that one too, but seems to be pretty expensive, especially when you add on the articulating hedge trimmer, pruner and extension pole.

Wow mines been shipped already! Was contemplating cancelling the order and going for the cheaper deal listed here:

hotukdeals.com/dea…134

However, as the thread states the reviews on that one are dreadful, whereas the Ryobi has generally excellent reviews, the hedge trimmer and a range of other attachments available - that's got to be worth the extra £39.98.

I have the RLT30CET and yes you still have to pull the string to start it (boy do I know) just it's warmed and run the push start is great but the battery needs to be on charge when not in use, don't leave in the cold shed. Other than that a great toy.

I still want the chain saw bit for it but - Not allowed lol (watch this space)

Are you sure? TouchStart is supposed to be push button *start*. I understand there is also a ripcord for when the battery is dead, but you don't "have" to use the ripcord.

mmmm Chainsaw.... oh boy... yes, I'll keep *that* bit of it from the wife

heres a few points Ive got the 30cc ryobi and a few other ryobi two stoke tools.

its definatly a bargain id say it was a bargain even for for £90 considering the price of the additionalhedge cutter. Its but slightly smallyer engine that the standard 26cc compared to 30cc but im sure for most gardeners it is more than ample.Im sure its pull start rather than button start it says easy start rather than touch start and these tend t be nearer £200. The tip i found to start it is, give it enough presses to get petrol into the bubble press and is when you are pulling the starter cord keep your other finger on choke button to press it a bit further down than its own natural position. iv got a ryobi brush cutter, hedge cutter and Zzzmmm! Zzzmmm! chainsaw.I've no major problems starting it but generally its not a great starter for older people or females due to the under development of their triceps and biceps..

Agreed. Particularly with the free hedge trimmer.

Im going to start a little garden maintenance business soon, is this item any good? can the hedge trimmer cut through even thick stuff well? Or is it a gimmick and doesnt do hedge cutting or strimming as well as standalone tools? msg me if you have any advice
