I asked Mr. EOS for a small easy non-gas powered weed whacker that I could use, that was light enough for me to carry, could be flexible to attach other tools and voila, I get the Ryobi 40-volt trimmer that has many tool ends to expand its capability. There’s a small tiller I’d like but first I thought I’d try this.
The weeds on the flagstone patio, despite being sprayed with weed killer and despite having the landscape crew using their weed whacker at them, still grow like wildfire so I wanted a trimmer for those moments when guests are coming over and the weeds are like tall corn in Iowa in July. Like this!! Yikes!
Stay tuned for a review. But first I’m heading out, or going to try to. There’s a road race today that surely has road closures and backups. But I played Polly Procratinater all week, blaming the rain for not wanting to get things done. Now I have no excuse. Well, it is misting. Does that count?
Happy Saturday. Happy weekend. Happy spring chores.
REVIEW: A+. Easy to assemble. No brainer actually. Lots of power. Made mincemeat of the flagstone weeds. A little loud but no stink or fumes like the old gasoline trimmer. Only thing I don’t like is there’s no on/off switch. If you squeeze the on bars it goes on even if you aren’t ready.
So ladies, you can do this chore. I see one of the Ryobi expand attachments is a small debris blower for getting rid of the weed detritus. We have a full fledged leaf blower but like all things gas powered, it’s a pain to start and a pain to maintain.
Done for the day. Yay me.
