I don't want to send my Ryobi Strimmer back!

Post by peter4076 »

For my sins I have joined the one+ Ryobi club, have purchased 18v 2.4ah battery & charger, all is well so far, so then purchased a Ryobi single feed cordless strimmer (getting ready for spring/summer 2012), item duly arrived, but can only turn strimmer off by removing battery, exactly the same when I start the strimmer, as soon as the battery is inserted it starts, the trigger plays no part at all, is there something I can do (I'm quite competent), I know there is a warranty, I have been in touch with company the strimmer was purchased from, and they have sent me all the paperwork & free postage sticker over to Holland (I purchased strimmer in the UK), but to be honest, I feel that with some help I could sort it out, any ideas?, your advice most appreciated.

the trouble is you open it you may invalidate the gtee
also grass wont grow with the air temperature below around 10 degrees so it wont grow for a few months

Assuming you bought the item retail? if so the Retailer is responsible for either a refund or replacement under the Sale of goods act.
Just fobbing you off with a return to manufacturer is wholly unacceptable.
