Ryobi ONE+ Lithium Hybrid Trimmer/Edger Review & GIVEAWAY!!

With Father's Day barreling towards us like a freight train, the time to get the perfect gift for dad is running out.

In my mind, Father's day basically marks the beginning of Summer. And for our family, Summer is all about getting outside and having fun as a family. Our yard becomes the centerpiece of our day in the summer months.

When the yard is running rampant and looks like a jungle, it makes it very difficult to enjoy. My husband works very hard to take care of the yard. In fact, he works too hard. The yard work takes him way too long, so long that is deprives him of fun time with us.

It should not be that hard. I knew there had to be a better way, and then it hit me, when you have the right equipment, things are bound to go more smoothly.

My husband uses a gas powered push mower and a weed eater. Having to mix gas and oil, refill gas, re-crank the weed eater, manually advance the line and so on really eats up a lot of time and causes an abundance if unnecessary effort.

I decided that a practical gift would be perfect for Father's Day, and something that that makes less work for my hubby, and that makes our outdoor family time more enjoyable would be perfect.

I wanted to get him better Lawn care equipment. Since I wanted to upgrade his current equipment, I obviously wanted the best that I could get, so I wanted a brand I know and trust.

Ryobi products are incredible. The quality is out of this world, especially for the affordable price. I knew that a Trimmer from Ryobi would be perfect.

I got him the Ryobi ONE+ Lithium Hybrid Trimmer/Edger. Just as I expected, it is wonderful.

This is everything that his old trimmer wasn't. It is lightweight, quiet, easy to handle plus it is not powered by gas. This amazing trimmer runs on an 18-volt Lithium-Ion Battery.

That makes it so perfect for quick jobs, just grab, whack and done. But that might not be practical for larger jobs. No problem, that is where the Hybrid aspect comes in handy. For larger areas, you can use a power(extension) cord. Being able to use this on the electricity from your house is awesome.

Never having to be bound by battery life or fuel is so great. I love that this is cleaner on the environment than gas powered trimmers.

What really sets this apart is how easy it is to use. It is so fast, and it is very powerful. The auto advance line makes the process go so quickly.

Also, because this acts as a trimmer and an edger, it really makes the job a breeze. Hubby would try to do edging with his regular weed eater, and it did not go very well. He loves this though.

We were both amazed by how quickly he finished the trimming and edging. The battery life was very impressive too. It got much more than we had thought it would, and it charges up very quickly too.

Everything about this is perfect. This may not be the most fun gift for Father's Day, but it is practice, something that will be put to use every week(or more) and make dad's days a little easier. The gift of time, that is priceless.

This would be a great gift for any father that does not want to kill himself to care for the yard. And for that reason, Ryobi and I are hosting a giveaway for a Ryobi ONE+ Lithium Hybrid Trimmer/Edger.

One very lucky winner will receive this incredible trimmer/edger. Simply enter below for your chance. Good luck.

*Although I received this at no cost to facilitate a review, all opinions are 100% my own*

  16. I'm sorry to be the bad guy, I purchased this the other day and quickly returned it. Maybe I got a bad one but after my first quick charge and only 8 minutes of light work it needed to be charged. Later after a longer charge and again light work it lasted only 10 minutes. I never return anything but this had to go.
