  • "A great tool, but....."

    Oct 26, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: light weight, easy to use, back saving
    Cons: would not hold a charge from the end of one trimming season to the beginning of the next.

    Summary: I bought a Ryobi 150r rechargeable, battery operated trimmer about three years ago. I bought this particular model, because I didn't want to mess with the hassle of a gasoline powered trimmer. When I first prepared to use the trimmer, I was somewhat ... read more

  • Ryobi 150r-- Great for home use

    Sep 28, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Easy. Hassle free. Quiet. Great for home (not commercial use).
    Cons: Does not last long enough for really big yards or commercial use.

    Summary: I've owned my Ryobi 150r for over 6 years, and it's perfect for home use. I live in California where the grass needs to be cut year round. The battery lasts long enough to easily do my entire yard. It's been a great, quiet, maintenance-free, ... read more

  • E for effort

    Sep 18, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Plenty of power for standard grass trimming and edging.
    Cons: Battery problems

    Summary: I'll keep this short since another review in here echoes my experience with this trimmer. In sum, when the trimmer is working at full power, it gets the job done. Anything heavier than grass though (Ivy, Pine Straw, etc.) quickly reveals its ... read more

  • Poor Quality. Battery technology just isn't there yet.

    Jan 21, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Electric without cords. No exhaust, and no maintenance.
    Cons: Heavy. Didn't last very long.

    Summary: I purchased this to replace a corded electric trimmer I was using. Having to run long extensions cords can be a drag. So I noticed two things at first. The noise/vibration wasn't very bad (compared to gas powered trimmers) and it was pretty heavy due ... read more

  • THE BEAST

    Aug 28, 2000 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: pretty much everything
    Cons: nothing i can think of

    Summary: This is a great trimmer. It is a hand held BEAST. This trimmer is very reliable. I have had one for about 4 years now and the only thing I have had to do to it is put more trimming string in it. It hasn't rusted or broken on me since I bought it, but ... read more

  • OK for small yard, quality low

    Aug 15, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Clean running
    Cons: Quality, low power, noisier than expected

    Summary: My father is not too mechanically inclined and decided to get an electric trimmer instead of continuing to borrow my gas trimmer. I previously had an awful rechargeable Toro, but they've come along way since then-about 1983. I bought him the 150r and ... read more

  • Cordless and effective

    Jul 16, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Cordless, powerful and easy to use for taller folks
    Cons: A bit heavier than the average corded trimmer

    Summary: If you are looking for a non gas trimmer and don't want to mess around with power cords, this trimmer is a good bet. It costs a bit more, but if you take in to account the advantage of not dealing with a power cord over the life of the product, it's ... read more

  • The choice of this professional

    Jul 9, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: lightweight, powerful
    Cons: none

    Summary: As a professional in the lawn care business I buy new equipment quite regularly. I considered the Ryobi 150r as an alternative to noisy gas powered trimmers. When I am trimming residential lawns the quiet operation and powerful motor provide all I need ... read more

  • 12 Volts of Clean Easy Power!

    May 6, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: It's Powerful, Clean, Convenient, Safe, and Economical.
    Cons: I wish it had multi-use capability

    Summary: As a bona fide Tim Allen-style power junkie, I always planned on buying a gas powered string trimmer, preferably one of those multi-use types which allows you to use the engine with several different attachments (string trimmer, lawn edger, etc.). This e ... read more

  • The new future of grass trimmers

    Dec 30, 1999 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Great
    Cons: A little awkward at first

    Summary: When my old grass trimmer went to pieces I went shopping for another one of comparable size, when I got to the store and found they had cordless ones I knew I had to have one. I compared the prices of the ones there and the sizes. The Ryobi 150R 12V ... read more

    Pros: My dad liked the trimmer
    Cons: Battery has a short life span

    Summary: If anyone knows where I can get a replacement battery for this trimmer, can you email me at kcarey121160@AOL.com please. ... read more

  • Don't Be Suckered!

    Mar 2, 2006 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: Cuts well
    Cons: Quickly becomes another piece of garage junk

    Summary: Looks great, cuts well and nicely balanced. Battery DOESN'T last longer than 24 months (if you're lucky), replacement is uneconomical. Anybody want to buy a dead 150R trimmer? ... read more

  • Poor Battery Life

    May 26, 2005 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: No gas mixing
    Cons: Battery Life -- Both charge to charge and replacement.

    Summary: I have had to replace the battery two times in three years. Nice idea but, not quite there yet. Batteries are around $50 each ... read more
