Mains, battery or petrol A hedge trimmer can be powered in 3 ways: mains electricity, rechargeable battery or petrol. They all have their advantages and disadvantages, so decide which is best for you. Electrical hedge trimmers provide a clean lighter weight option with the convenience of immediate and continual use. However you may be restricted by cord length - not ideal if the hedge is a long way from your power source and having a cord can be obtrusive and dangerous. Rechargeable hedge trimmers give you the best of both worlds. They're clean to use and have no cord so they can be used anywhere, without the danger of accidentally cutting the cord. They are less powerful than petrol models and you do need to plan ahead though and make sure your batteries have been charged. 5-7 hours of charging will give you just 30 minutes use. A second battery will give you back up but if you're cutting for long periods of time, you may find this timescale too restrictive. Petrol hedge trimmers can again be used anywhere, there's no cord so they're safer. Just top them up with petrol and away you go, no charging necessary. These models do tend to be harder to use - they're heavier, noisier and smoky.

What kind of motor is in a hedge trimmer ?

NO, you can NOT put a hedge trimmer motor on a bike! That motor is too little, it will not produce enough torque to move the bike.

What size line do I need for a Ryobi ELT1000FA Trimmer

A good Rule-of-Thumb for homeowner trimmers is:

Curved shaft trimmers need to run .065-.080 diameter line while straight shaft trimmers can handle .095-.115 diameter.

Keep in mind the kind of use the machine gets and match line diameter accordingly. Larger line may fit into the spool, but the power and RPM that's available to you will suffer because of the extra weight and wind resistance.
Hope this helps!

there should be a label stating the oil type somewhere on the engine or cap or owners manual, if not most manufacturers recomend a 30 weight oil. be sure to drain out the old stuff first.
