I'd like an answer to that question also.
Exactly, how much oil does the X430 take?
... what is the capacity?

I do not need to know the oil type or that it is a 4 stroke and not a 2 stroke, thus no mix. I need to know the total oil capacity of the unit.

I cannot tell if it is full. If the unit is level, it reads one thing. If the oil reservoir top at the plug is to be level.

A tour of your local wood shops and you might discover a scrap saw just waiting for you.
Alternatively a local handyman or maybe your local auto repair shop can perform a repair or mackle up a replacement.

All the strimmers of my experience have a sharp blade set in the guard to cut the string when it exceeds a maximum length - maybe it is blunt or missing.

"Thicker weeds" could be too much for a cordless grass trimmer that can only be efficient when it is running at maximum speed. Thicker weeds are likely to slow down the motor and prevent it cutting efficiently, reduce the amount of cooling air through the motor while increasing the current being consumed by the motor; hence an overheating motor.

It is one of the physical laws that a horsepower can't be got out of a machine that doesn't have more than a horsepower going into it. With a cordless drill/driver there is a gearbox to provide a huge mechanical advantage - the motor turns fast and the chuck turns slowly, a grass trimmer can't have that advantage and with the power input being severely limited, the capability of the machine is similarly very limited.

My 22cc petrol strimmer struggles and slows down when it encounters thicker weeds and needs a deal of patience and consumes string at a much greater rate. In the early days of the strimmer engine sizes as small as 16cc were available but over the decades they have grown significantly because they weren't powerful enough to provide satisfactory performance. Today I don't think I could buy my 22cc strimmer again.

Ryobi told me the unit can't have the s430 trimmer bottom end raised higher than the engine at any time, or it will leak. Apparently they released a product to compete with other companies for cheap 4 cycle trimmers without much care for the end user.

Remove spark plug and try again. If still hard to pull then most likely it needs new a new recoil starter.

Completely dead batteries may cause the charger to not see any load and it wont charge them. The way around this is to put the battery on the charger with the charger unplugged. Then plug in the charger and check the lights. Keep unplugging and plugging in the charger till it catches up and stays on.

Fuel demand rises when an engine is put to work and that is probably why it is dying - either the fuel system or the carb is incapable of supplying that extra fuel or in an extreme case the crank seals might be failing.

Assuming everything else is in good order and in the case of a carb with the customary two fuel screws it could be a matter of maladjustment. Correct adjustment is tricky and takes a deal of patience.
If partially applying the choke, strangler or cold start as it begins to die makes it recover somewhat, I suggest you take another look at the fuel system and then the carb adjustment.
