Ryobi Model #RY40210A 40V String Trimmer/Edger
The Ryobi Model #RY40210A 40V String Trimmer/Edger makes this list because it packs the most punch with its 40 volt Lithium battery. Weighing in at nine pounds, it’s a bit heavier than most, but this is the only unit here that may rival a small gas powered type. The pivoting head rotates between trimming and edging, and it has an auto-feed head along with a variable speed trigger to provide power when you need it or a longer run time when you don't.
This cordless edger is exceptionally well balanced to limit fatigue during use, has a guide wheel for precision edging, and is rated at being able to trim/edge a one acre plot of land on a single charge. This is the most expensive edger/trimmer on the list but it comes with a three year warranty. If you’re looking for bragging rights, this is the cordless edger for you.
