Note: I was not compensated to write this article. I’m just sharing my love for RYOBI tools!
It’s that time of year again!
We live in a small rural town and have LOTS of trees and a decent sized yard. Once March rolls around, the trees and flowers start to bloom, all the little critters and bugs start to appear, and the grass starts to grow nonstop until the winter months.
Yard tools are a must for any homeowner who wants to keep their yard maintained and looking great. For years we’ve owned the typical gas-powered tools such as push-mowers and weed eaters, and I can’t tell you how many we’ve gone through. Dealing with machines that constantly break down even though they’re maintained is such a hassle, as is having to go to the gas station to keep them gassed up.
The mower uses two 18v lithium batteries, which gives me about 45 minutes of mowing on one charge. That works perfectly fine for me, as my front and back yard isn’t that large (1/2 acre). I usually take a break during charge time or work on something else in the yard. And because my mower, weed eater, and pole saw are all part of the RYOBI One+ family, I can use the same batteries for each tool, and even for my other power tools!
As far as power is concerned, I’m very impressed with all three of my tools… I personally don’t see or feel a difference between these battery operated tools and my former gas tools. In fact, I think my RYOBI weed eater is far better than any gas-powered one I’ve ever used!
I love the quick start on all three of these tools, and the fact that I no longer have to worry about gassing them up, or all of the hassles associated with gas powered tools.
I’ve used RYOBI tools for over 15 years, and because of my VERY positive experience with them all, I heartily recommend both the brand and, now, their outdoors tools as well. In fact, I’ve got my eyes on other RYOBI yard tools… like with all of my constant leaves that fall during the year, I could definitely use the jet fan blower!
