condition: good
make / manufacturer: Ryobi
model name / number: SS30 Expand-It Powerhead
This is a working and recently maintained Ryobi SS30 power head with a straight-shaft string trimmer and edger attachments that can be swapped out in about 30 seconds.

The string trimmer has an "easy" load head, which means you don't have to remove the head to load new line in it, you simply line up arrows on the head, push the line through the middle, and turn the head by hand to load new line. It also had the speed bump, so you can hit it on the ground while the head is spinning and it will feed out an inch or two of line.

I just used it on July 1 to trim and edge my yard and I'd be glad to let you try it out and see that it works well. Also, the photos show pictures of the trimmer and edger in action. They are spinning at high speed, so it's a bit hard to see in the photo, but the intention was to show they are working in the photos.

This is a 2-cycle gas engine, which means you must mix 2-cycle oil in with the gas at a ratio of 50:1. This also means there's no oil to change, so it's easier to maintain. Non-ethanol gas is best for most engines and is easy to get at many Spinx, QuikTrip, and other gas stations.

The edger has a fairly new blade with plenty of life still on the blade.

I've owned this for many years and decided to sell it because I inherited a slightly more powerful Echo trimmer and edger from a neighbor in exchange for caring for his yard.

I serviced this and replace parts in the middle of last season so it has low hours on the carburetor membranes and needle, spark plug, fuel lines, primer bulb, clutch drum, and clutch.

It starts with 1 or 2 pulls even when it hasn't been used for weeks.

The only thing to note is the clutch engages the drum when it's idling, so the trimmer or edger head will spin slowly even when the trigger isn't being pressed. This is due to the clutch staying expanded at low speed. Though, it's really never been an issue me and the only side-effect is it spins a bit more when you're not actively pulling the trigger.

This will include a few extra replacement parts:
* an extra new trimmer bump knob
* an extra new air filter
* a used primer bulb that is still good
* some extra fuel line
* a used fuel filter that I removed when I serviced it last summer, but which is likely still good
an extra gas cap
* the first page of the operators manual is included, but you can find old manuals online, or I can email you a PDF of the manual if you need it
* a used clutch and spark plug, which are still usable

Pickup near Rutherford Road and N. Pleasantburg Drive in Greenville, between Cherrydale and Bob Jones University. I'll meet you out front and demonstrate how to use it.
