Ryobi 18V Hybrid String Trimmer Review

Hey there!  Have we got a cool opportunity for you all today!  We were lucky enough to get to try some of the newest 18V Ryobi outdoor tools!  We aren’t typically in the yard, we leave that to the hubbies…or at least we have until now!  We LOVE these tools and one of our favorites is the 18-Volt Hybrid String Trimmer!


I have always been intimidated by my husbands lawn equipment.  They are loud, look dangerous and they use gasoline!  I don’t even like to pump gas in my car so no way was I going to attempt to use his tools;)  That’s what is so great about this new line of tools!  They are BATTERY POWERED!  And they share the same 18V batteries as the Ryobi power tools that we love!


Cordless_EdgerIt’s so easy to use.  Just pop the battery in and twist the dial, in the middle, to trim or edge and pull the trigger!  You can also adjust the cut width on the edger!

Battery_EdgerNot only does this bad boy run on the 18V batteries, it is electric as well!  So, if you are close to your home, you can hook it up to an extension cord.  If you are further from home or just don’t want to mess with the cords, pop in the battery!  My hubs even stole this from me, one night last week, to trim some weeds down on a baseball field he took the boys to practice at!  He loved it ~ I made him give it back 😉

Ryobi_Cordless_String_TrimmerIt’s light weight, the battery life lasts a long time and I can now say that I can do yard work!  It’s nice to be able to get out and help my husband and it’s fun too!  How would you all like the chance to win your own Ryobi 18V Hybrid String Trimmer?  Well, we are giving away TWO 🙂

Just enter below for many chances to win!  Your yard work will never be the same!

    Thanks for the reminder that we really need to get one of these! I’ve been meaning to do something about the out of control weeds 🙂

    You ladies are such an inspiration! 🙂 My husband and I just bought our
    first home and we cannot wait to do some major DIY projects from your
    site (we’ve been eying the X Farmhouse table for awhile!). We would love
    to win the 18V Hybrid String Trimmer to make keeping up with our new
    lawn much easier, especially along the fence line where the lawn mower
    can’t always get. I love that you guys said that it’s lightweight and
    easy to use. That’s one big “guideline” we follow in when buying new
    tools so I can still use them when my hubs goes on deployments!

    My boyfriend and I just had our first home built and we are on a 1/4 acre lot with a beautiful front yard and nothing to keep it up with. Once our backyard is done, there will be a whole different necessity for a trimmer. Thankfully I have a wonderful brother who came over with my dads mower and cut the grass for us :), but the edges are in need of some TLC so hoping to be the lucky girl who gets one of these awesome trimmers! Thanks ladies! You have been the inspiration to our home as we actually purchased the kreg jig master toolboxx and have built 2 end tables, a coffee table, a console table, and are working on the dining room table this weekend. 🙂

  24. Marsha Carsner on June 5, 2013 at 11:37 am

  26. Michelle Williams on June 5, 2013 at 10:38 am

    I absolutely love what you two women do. Once my daughter is in school (don’t worry, I’m not wishing the time away…I’m enjoying every second with her) in two years, I will fulfill my lifelong dream of being a full time DIYer and blogger. You both are such an inspiration and I love all of the effort that you two put behind this website and all of the videos to help us all learn how to become a handywoman!

  27. Ashley Watson on June 5, 2013 at 10:21 am
