    We bought a Ryobi 2 stroke petrol brushcutter about 2 years ago, and used it about 7 times before it conked out. (Yes, we do know you have to mix the fuel with 2 stroke oil - we also run bikes.)

    So being competent engineers, we took it to bits.

    The crank/counterweight had shattered into 3 pieces, one of which had embedded itself in the crankcase. Why should this component have shattered? It is a cast item, and close inspection revealed it was heavily crystallized - we think this can only be poor quality casting. We also noted that the conrod appeared to be free floating - so it can move up and down the journal as well as rotate on the bearing. We thought it was a bit odd not to have a full crank on the engine - ie that the crank itself is supported at both ends to reduce stresses on the shaft. (This also ensures that the conrod is properly located on its journal and stays in the right vertical plane and can't stray up and down that journal.)

    We compared the internals to an earlier 1970's model. Still not a full crank, but this one (also deceased, but n/m) had a lovely brass laminate counterweight and the conrod was not free floating on it - the inner race of the bearing was tight on the journal so it would not move out of plane - which is clearly a rather better design.

    But could we get a replacement? We tried. We failed. The parts people we tried (and we tried 3) were either incapable of understanding what we were saying, claimed that the parts were unobtainable as the model was no longer made, or were either permanently on holiday or had not paid their phone bill.

    So we welded the crank/counterweight up (yes, we have a fully equipped little workshop), and started to rebuild the machine. But then, we noticed something else wrong.

    On the minus side:

    Instructions are diabolical and consist of diagrams! Thankfully I found some Australian Ryobi videos on Youtube which were useful.

    At first the engine was difficult to start. Its getting easier now.

    From cold you need to apply full choke and pump the primer at least 10 times. Then 15 pulls on the cord (or so) and the engine coughs into life. I then immediately take the choke off and let it idle for 30s. Then very gradually apply throttle until it reaches full speed (too quick and it stalls). Once going for a minute its fine.

    From hot I just pull the starter cord about 20 times to get it going.

    My version arrived only with the EasyReel brushcutter and the tri-blade. I have only used the EasyReel so far as it looks hassle to change over to the blade. The description indicated that the package includes another strimming head but it doesnt.

    Vibration is quite bad - suggest using thick gardening gloves to reduce the impact.

    On the plus side:

    Very powerful brushcutter - has cut through pretty much anything I tried (up to about 10mm pulpy weeds - not wood).

    Shoulder strap supplied and is essential - this is quite heavy.

    Overall I am extremely happy with this.

    Some must-haves which are not included:

    - Eye protection (my eyes were on fire after day 1!)
    - 2 stroke mixing bottle (Ryobi do their own which is very good)

    Not extensively used yet, but looking OK. Replaces a professional Castor unit that went wrong after 10 years hard use.
    Solidly constructed, but unlike the Castor has flexible drive shaft, not a rigid one. Works well with the extension and the hedge cutter attachment.
    Starting could be a bit easier, but that may improve as the unit runs in.
    Hedge cutter (AHF04) works well, but drive unit has to be well warmed up or the clutch slips. Copes with brush up to about 10mm ok, but struggles above that. Having cut our big hedge hard back with my wonderful Bosch electric hedge cutter and the long arm, regular cutting will be much easier.
    The extension shaft is most useful, but you'd struggle with more than one if you wanted a longer reach!Ryobi Expand-it AHF04 Articulating Hedge Trimmer RYBAHF04Ryobi Expand-It Aex 02 Extension Shaft

    I've had a Ryobi brushcutter for about three years now, during which time I've managed to get it started about three times. Even when it's running it has a tendency to stall - at which point it's almost impossible to start again until it's cooled.

    After one particularly frustrating session (and still less than a year old) I took it to my local garden tools shop for a service. They reluctantly agreed to have a look at it, saying they didn't usually bother to try and service Ryobis. They cleaned and adjusted it and it worked fine - the first time out. After that it conked out again.

    Ryobis are at the cheap end of the market and you get what you pay for. Save up and buy one that works....
