Ryobi has announced that it is, once again, expanding its already extensive line of cordless solutions. With more than 85 models in its lineup, the company has unveiled one more: the Ryobi 40V HP Stick Edger.
Ryobi 40V HP Stick Edger Performance Features
On the operative side of things, the Ryobi RY40780VNM stick edger has a variable speed trigger and a 2-speed switch, enabling users to adapt their usage to the task at hand. To further tailor the edger’s performance, the operator can adjust the depth between 0.5″ and 2.25″ with a single-point height adjustment.
Ryobi’s team has thrown a front handle into the design for control and maneuverability, while a blade indicator helps manage cut accuracy.
To assist the Ryobi stick edger with blade changes, designers added a spindle lock to make the process quicker and easier.
