A new store open up near me and it has alot of Ryobi stuff. Is it any good?
Consumer level quality
I bought one of their cordless drills a couple years ago. I wouldn't buy another one.
Just about good for nothing in my book!
No, you will love it till it falls apart the first season.
First year part time and first year full time I used Ryobi. If you just have 10 small accounts and that is all you can afford it will work till you can afford something better. Don't miss them but they made me money. Actually the same set up is still being used by another part timer.
I wouldn't bother with any consumer brand. There is simply no comparison between them and the commercial units. If price is an obstacle, I'd take a used commercial unit over ANY new consumer unit.
Everything made by them is a piece of ...t.
Don't even try one, I started out 2 seasons ago, okay cutting your own lawn, just 1 lawn, it works wonders but as soon as you go out cutting at least thick healthy 5 more lawns, the "drive cable" (cheap quality) will snap and give up in the mid of job, leaving you unfinished lawns that day untill you got a new cable installed. That takes time, money, energy, gas, frustration, paper works and takes toll on your customer's confidence in you. It's not worth even a penny to use them.
Go Stihl, or Shin, lifetime warranty on drive cable and it never snaps on me.
so long Robi or something? never visit Lowe's lawn equip section again.
