“Have had a 25cc Ryobi strimmer for some time. ...”

Written on: 19/05/2010

Have had a 25cc Ryobi strimmer for some time. Initially very difficult to start, so much so that the plastic pawl rotor in the recoil starter wore out after not much use, but out of guarantee. So replaced and bought a further spare just in case. Key to that is plenty of WD40 in the works as the pawls stick. Starting - use medium choke and pull through 5 or six times before turning on ignition to flood carb, then try. Still a poor starter though, then runs for only 15 mins or so until hot… Read Full Review

Written on: 10/07/2009 by vernon391 (1 review written)

Three hours use saw the units drive shaft round off and leave the Ryobi PLT3043YE Petrol Strimmer out of action. Clearly poor componants and dreadful quality control. I could have kicked myself, there is a reason Makita, Stihl etc are more money, they work!… Read Full Review

Written on: 28/01/2009 by paulpenny (1 review written)

for the price i paid 12 months ago, around £80 it does its job,
would not buy one again, not happy with the quality of the cutting
i had a japanese make cost me £250, that was superb cutting quality and stronger, when i bought the ryobi it would not start had to phone the helpline,who tried to say the petrol was old, even though i just bought it. had to de flood the engine, when the engine is hot it will not start, would not endorse it at all. rather put the extra money together and buy a… Read Full Review

“I have to plan my work without turning off the machine...”

Written on: 23/09/2008 by luckymusher (1 review written)

I have to plan my work without turning off the machine as my Ryobi PLT3043YE Petrol Strimmer won't start when hot - this includes changing heads - which is a potential danger. I have the strimmer & hedge trimmer attachments - I have just bought a Mowerland Multi cutter to use as a pruner & brush cutter for the same price as buying the Ryobi Brush cutter & Pruner Attachment. I now have two machines that I can switch between when the Ryobi won't start… Read Full Review

“I don't see why the plastic bump head can't be...”

Written on: 06/08/2008 by Nigel Siswick (1 review written)

I don't see why the plastic bump head can't be manufactured from steel as this seems to be a weak point.
Decisions, decisions, do I have it repaired again, by which time I will have paid more in repair costs than I paid for the m/c or do I buy one from another manufacturer… Read Full Review

“This Ryobi PLT3043YE Petrol Strimmer is a 30cc 2...”

Written on: 23/07/2008 by Andy Cullum (3 reviews written)

This Ryobi PLT3043YE Petrol Strimmer is a 30cc 2 stroke brush cutter - part of the ryobi expandit range. it accepts all the expandit fittings - brush cutter, hedge trimmer, chainsaw pruner etc.
I have had this for over a year and use it once every two weeks or so for about 3-4 hours each time. When I first bought it it was difficult to start because like all men I did not read the instructions. I can now start it within two or three pulls.
I have read reviews of similar machines where people… Read Full Review
