Ryobi, NEVER again!
Ryobi T430 Wheeled field trimmer - Complaint
WESTPORT, WASHINGTON -- If hard starting was the only problem with these piles of junk, I would be thrilled.
Concept: fantastic. Execution: Who ever designed and approved the motor, should be.
First motor lasted less than two months. H Depot sent it to a service dealer. The dealer said that it was run without oil. Only problem is that it ran and had oil in it when it was taken back. When I received it back, the PLASTIC cam was shredded and it wouldn't even fire. Bought a "Factory" reconditioned long-shaft trimmer for the motor. Finished out the season. Started spring clean up, less than an hour, the thing started spewing blue smoke. Shut it off, it just sat there smoking. The cam is fine, bottom end is shot. Working on mounting a Stihl two-stroke on it now.
