If you have Ryobi 18V, then I would recommend the P2090 or P2009 (w/ or w/o 4Ah bat & charger) over the GW 40V for all the reasons I stated in post #3.I've slowly been acquiring some Ryobi 18V One+ stuff, for a coupla reasons; I really needed a dedicated edger at my new property and they have one. Corner lot with sidewalks. Additionally, I was ready to get away from my old B&D hand/yard tools with the ni-cd batteries. So, I have an edger as said, drill-driver , inflator, coupla other ryobi tools now.
The trimmer I have now is a GW single line 065 unit. It is set-up with a wheel for edging but, I just couldn't see doing 100s of feet of edging with it.
I've also got the dedicated 18V Edger and it's only downside is it could use a bit more power. Go slow to avoid tripping out the overload and it works 100% better than the "Attachment" style that I borrowed & tried out on my GW attachment capable 40V trimmer !!
