“Ryobi Rubbish”

Written on: 03/06/2014 by qaMalloy6 (1 review written)

Ryobi 4 stroke strimmer !! What can I say but rubbish don't bother. Worked Ok for a few months , purchased in 2014 , by early Summer difficult to start & will not run properly. It was used in total for max 2hrs. Local garden tool repair centre simply laughed stating that you cannot get parts & the quality is poor .He would not even bother to look at it , same response by other repair engineers. I stripped it down cleaned plug etc no change . A complete waste of time , its looks brand new… Read Full Review

“Rubbish, Rubbish, Rubbish!”

Written on: 24/05/2014 by Frank-in-Stein1 (1 review written)

Gave up starting after about two weeks. Returned twice to Ryobi dealer and returned 'No Fault Found'. Should have read 'No Fault Found So Can't Fix It'. I have removed and dismantled the carburettor but couldn't find any obvious problem. Reassembled and refitted it. Started second pull. Started third pull the following day then failed to start on the third day. I have ordered a 'non original carburettor' as I feel this is where the problem lies. If this fails I will dump it! Absolute 'Rubbish'!… Read Full Review

“Ryobi PBC3046YE rubbish”

Written on: 07/08/2013 by Thread_Bear (1 review written)

I bought a Ryobi PBC3046YE 30cc multi-tool system and it's rubbish. The engine isn't easy to start, the strimmer head grabs and clogs with long grass almost instantly as it's badly designed and also has a spring that isn't captive so when you take off the head it pops out and disappears into the log grass, the twin strimmer line arrangement is inconvenient compared to the looped line system and the chainsaw attachment has leaked oil from the word go. Don't waste your money - I wish I hadn't… Read Full Review

“Starter cord jammed so useless”

Written on: 05/05/2013 by Keith the Astrophysicist (11 reviews written)

Well it worked for a while albeit leaking lubricating oil worryingly down the fuel pipe. Yes, it is a begger to start, worse than my previous cheaper 2 stroke strimmers. After 9 months it is now out of action because the starter cord has jammed solid and will not pull. The cause was sudden cut-out during operation and that happened because an exposed cable beneath the engine housing unclipped. Putting a vital cable in harm's way is just bad design. Dare I say it, none of the petrol strimmers I… Read Full Review

HOWEVER, the after sales service has been EXCELLENT. MY phone call was answered swiftly by an expert in the UK so an intelligent conversation in English took place. The strimmer was sent back and, within 5 days, a brand new one was delivered back in its place. What more can one ask. Thank you Ryobi.

“Ryobi RBC430SESC”

Written on: 20/04/2013

I bought a 30cc Ryobi RBC430SESC with Bushcutter and Strimmer from B&Q, along with a Ryobi AFM03 Flexi Mower Attachment, which would be a great tool had I not encountered problems. Both the power unit and flexi mower have been used once, for the first time yesterday and they will now be going back for a refund. The retaining stud and locking mechanism of the flexi mower sheered, making it unusable because it would not then stay aligned. At exactly the same time the power head completely… Read Full Review

“I have a Ryobi RTL30CESA Strimmer - It is Rubbish”

Written on: 24/08/2011 by Duke_Nukem (12 reviews written)

It was always difficult to start, but got worse as time went on. I am an engineer and was able to adjust the starting settings (by re-shaping the cam for richer mix and higher speed) which helped a bit, but it still got worse. In case the jets were blocked, I have re-built the carb I dont know how many times - no difference. In case the head gasket was leaking I re-built the engine and discovered that one of the three cyl head bolts was missing (by the marks it had never been fitted)… Read Full Review

Written on: 21/09/2010

I wish I had bought this from somewhere like B & Q where I could have got my money back, but I bought it on line and it has already been back for repair. It has been nothing but trouble. Worked for about an hour, after some difficult starts, but now refuses to run at all. It is out of warranty now and I'm guessing it would cost more to repair than it is worth.
I wish I had researched the problems with this manufacturer before I bought it. Would never buy another Ryobi product… Read Full Review

Written on: 05/09/2010

I've had a Ryobi strimmer for about a year and had to take the first one back as it wouldn't start. Since then I've had endless problems - it's alwaysa case of "if" rather than "when" it will start. It's hugely frustrating when I finally manage to free up a day to tackle the garden and the Ryobi has an off day and just will not play - am about to ditch it forsomething more reliable… Read Full Review

Strimmer stoped working after less than 1/2 houre use
I had to take it 25 miles to warrenty /service centre
found our it had a hole in the plastic crankcase
repair was quick, only 1 week
then had another 25 miles to collect
repairer said "see you again, unless you are lucky"
I will never buy from the internet again anything that costs more than a few pounds, especially from China… Read Full Review

Your review ended by asking whether you could get replacement parts for Ryobi stuff.

Answer : - NO! Despite the fact that Ryobi need spares at a higher rate than other makes.

I had a Ryobi, and in trying to find parts several garden machinery repair places just laughed, and said they would not sell, repair or touch Ryobi - rubbish in their professional opinions for which spares are unobtainable.

I Googled for "Ryobi spares" and thought I found some, but they meant "spares" like oil, gloves and goggles.

My Ryobi is now in the Local Council skip.
