There aren’t many jobs we leave to our hubbies, but yard work definitely makes that list!  The thought of gas, chokes and a yard full of weeds can be a bit intimidating.  NOT ANYMORE! We were so pumped to try out Ryobi’s 40V Lithium Ion Yard tools.  A mower with a battery? You bet.  We thought it was probably too good to be true.  These made yard work simple and we feel like pros!  Here is how easy it is with the help of these great tools!

Ryobi Yard Tools

The 40V mower was one of our very favorite tools in the bunch.  I actually LOVE mowing with this bad boy… It’s as easy as pushing a vacuum!  We like to keep straight diagonal lines when we mow.  It makes the yard look clean and finished.  The 40V mower is so simple to use.  With a push of a button it starts, and you can easily adjust the cutting length with a knob on the mower… Too legit.

You can easily clean up your edges using the Ryobi 40V String Trimmer and Edger.  You want to run the edger along your driveway, sidewalks and even lined beds like I have!  People often skip this step but it’s like trimming up a good hair cut.  It makes a HUGE difference.  Plus, with a small push of the lever, you can switch it to the string trimmer function and get some of those hard to reach weeds knocked right out.  Such a cool and easy tool!

You can quickly cut down any dead or ugly limbs that may be hanging around using Ryobi’s 40V Chainsaw!  I honestly never thought I would use a chainsaw, but Ryobi took the intimidation out of it!

And finally the clean up!

This 40V blower is so great!  With the push of a button, you can clean up all the grass and dust you left behind.  It is powerful and lightweight at the same time.   It is also super handy in the garage for cleaning up after projects.  I have retired my broom for good!

That’s it!  We feel like we conquered the world… Well, maybe just our yards!  We love everything about these tools, especially the fact that they all run on that amazing 40V battery.  They take up very little space, they are easy to use and are a perfect set of tools for anyone with a yard to care for!  Thanks Ryobi for putting the FUN into yard work!  Our hubbies thank you too 🙂 !

And the great news??  Our friends at Ryobi are giving one lucky Shanty reader their very own 40V Mower!
