Bad Points
Throttle latch iffy.
No bump feed line head.

General Comments
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. Fortunately I had A spare bump head from another strimmer, they seem fairly universal, if it has a 10mm left hand female thread it will fit.
