Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This hedge trimmer has very smooth operation, I order this product couple of weeks ago. In this season most of the shrubs are already trimmed, but I am using this time for small job like dwarf Nandino & small shrubs. It worked very nice. It is sturdy and compact. I bought this one because same company I have used other products with 40 volt lithium battery & it worked very good. April 16, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fantastic! Powerful, and Clean for the environment too! We bought the 40v trimmer from Ryobi, so I also bought this to trim the hedge on our side of the neighbor's surinam cherry hedge. The battery pack from ryobi's 40v line is usable by all other 40v accessories so attaching the battery is no problem. The hedge trimmer come pre-assembled, there are 2 attachments, one is the teeth guarde, one is the debris remover which you attach to top of the trimmer to help cleaning out cut debris. I fired it up for the first run and it is smooth and powerful. Instruction said you have to regularly oil the blades to keep them from rusting, and also to sharpen them when they gets dull, so be sure to do that to maintain the tool in it's optimal performance. Highly recommended. August 27, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Can't beat this cordless trimmer I needed a trimmer that would help me keep the grass and reeds growing along the canal behind my house that didn't involve running an extension cord across the water. I made the mistake of first buying an inexpensive light cordless trimmer (not Ryobi) it wasn't strong enough to cut through the thickets and the battery would run down to quickly. Since I already own a Ryobi electric string trimmer and Ryobi electric lawn mower, it wasn't expensive to just by the 24" hedge trimmer without a battery or charger...I already had two chargers and three batteries, so I gave it a try...WOW, it's fantastic, one sweep of the trimmer and the weeds are trimmer down liked a hedge. I have used it heavily to trim them down, walked across the cannel to trim from the water side, how did I live without this. Keeping them trimmed down is no longer a headache, my neighbors want me to trim theirs down as well... and why not, it's a breeze. All my trimming and the battery still showed 3/4 charge still.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Can't beat cordless. I had an electric powered hedge trimmer. A lot of my shrubs are away from any electricity so I had to set up a Honda generator whenever I trimmed. That was a pain to drag around. Also,ever year or so, I would cut an extension cord, and have to replace it. With the Ryobi, I eliminate both these problems. It takes me about 45-60 minutes to trim, and I don't run out of power. I also have a Ryobi blower. After I trim the bushes, I transfer the battery and blow off the driveway & sidewalk. I don't dread trimming anymore. I'm glad I bought it. May 27, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This thing is great! I was always cutting the extension cord and needed a trimmer that was battery operated so I gave this trimmer a try.I have two other 40 volt tools that I bought at Home Depot that are Ryobi and found they work very well. I charged the battery and when outside to trim the hedges. I like the length of the cutting bar as my B&D only had a 18 inch cutter and the power was better than the corded model I had. The sweep feature works supriseingly well and the battery lasted for the complete job. If you want to cut the cord for last time buy this as you won't be disappointed. August 12, 2014
