New Ryobi 40-Volt Line Looks as Good as it Performs

The Ryobi 40 Volt Outdoor Series

 

When you mowed the grass as a teenager, chances are that you didn’t feel all that cool–no matter how loud you cranked that Prince tape in your Walkman. The new line of Ryobi 40-Volt Lithium-Ion outdoor tools completely changes the equation. The compact, neon, lightweight MowerString TrimmerChain SawHedge Trimmer and Blower are tools you (or your dad) will actually want to be seen using.

These tool are now available online at homedepot.com and at your local Home Depot store.

We got to take the new line out for a test drive, and here are six reasons we’re digging these tools:

The Interchangeable Battery is Quite Clever

Use one 40-volt rechargeable battery to power all of the tools in the line.  That means you won’t waste oil or other fuel and you’ll be keeping more batteries out of the landfills, a definite plus for the environment.  There are no tangled chords to mess around with, either.

The lithium-ion battery runs for the maximum amount of time for a rechargeable—and it holds a charge up to four times longer. Just mash the Check Your Charge button right on the battery to see where you stand. We found that the battery held out for quite sometime when we tackled a majorly overgrown lawn.
