Ryobi – Expandable DIY Uses
Ryobi has been a tried and trusted name in power tools for the home handyman and DIY enthusiast for over 80 years. They market a wide range of products that keep your home and garden in shape. Their prices are affordable and products durable, some tools even capable of being converted into five other tools using a series of attachments.
The Ryobi Expand-It range
As the name suggests, this system uses a powerhead, basically a base unit or motor, to drive a range of different attachments. All these attachments are compatible with their 40V battery and gas powerheads.
Brush Cutter - You can easily convert your Ryobi String Trimmer into a more heavy-duty tool by using a blade attachment. This can then be used to cut through thicker and heavier weeds, long grass and stems. The blades are typically made from heavy grade steel to maximise durability.
Hedge Trimmer – This attachment is quick and easy to connect to your string trimmer. It has an adjustable head that allows you to turn it to a 90-degree angle, and a 28 mm cutting capacity.
Edger – While you can achieve the same result by flipping a string trimmer on its side, the results you get when using a proper edger are far superior. This attachment has a 20 cm double-edge steel blade, adjustable cutting depth and a large guide wheel. It gets the job done quickly and efficiently.
Jet Blower – This attachment turns your string trimmer into a handy leaf and garden blower quickly and easily. While remaining light and well-balanced, it can disperse piles of debris with its powerful 3-stage axial fan. It fits both the curved and straight shaft petrol line trimmer, as well as the 36V version.
Pole-Saw – This is effectively a pruning tool or small chainsaw. Ryobi recommends limiting the cutting diameter to around 15 cm. It comes with a handy shoulder strap, tension adjustment tool and chain lubricant.
Whatever your garden aspirations, Ryobi will make you a convert with their range of power attachments so shop on eBay today.
