“Parts Difficult to find”

Written on: 11/06/2013

It's the second season that I have my RCB 52SB When it works it's great - but the air filter housing dislodged itself, and I require a small part to fix it. It is very difficult to find any parts for this machine on the net. The next time I'd go with a more popular brand… Read Full Review

“Avoid”

Written on: 12/03/2012 by Bosphorus (1 review written)

I've had a grand total of 5 successful starts on mine in a year. The second time, the starter cord assembly broke. Third time, the carburettor fell off. 4th time, it overheated and sulked, which I diagnosed as a cracked (plastic) intake manifold. Maybe it's just a Friday afternoon job, but some of the vital components seem far too, well, plasticky. I have a little Stihl that starts every time and just keeps going. It's noisier and vibrates more, but at least it works. And it was cheaper… Read Full Review

“Great price, but you get what you pay for.”

Written on: 05/08/2011

RYOBI RBC-52SB I am now on second of these machines, the first having lasted a couple of seasons before the starter assembly broke with a 5 week wait for the spare part. Now I know many will say that they should last longer, but my reply would be 'try to find another machine around 50cc at this price' At the time of writing it's available online (try ebay) for £180 with comparable power machines from other makers costing £700 upwards. It sometimes can take a good few pulls to start but always… Read Full Review

“This machine is a waste of time. Mine has been back...”

Written on: 25/05/2010

This machine is a waste of time. Mine has been back under warranty twice now for the same faults. The recoil unit is plastic and falls apart. Also the fuel tank guard is flimsy and falls apart. Would not be given another.

“Don't confuse the Ryobi RBC-52SB with other Ryobi DIY...”

Written on: 13/08/2008 by geoffk (12 reviews written)

Don't confuse the Ryobi RBC-52SB with other Ryobi DIY equipment, this machine is a professional tool. It is a bit weighty and really does require the supplied harness but when it's adjusted correctly its a treat to use. Be warned the 52cc engine will kick back if you don't hang on tightly. The only gripes are the throttle latch, which takes some practise to operate, and the lack of bump feed line head. I think with the fixed line head (supplied), more line will be thrown away than used… Read Full Review
