Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AALI 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.

Ready right out of the box, as long as you have the battery. I had the battery and charger from my Ryobi mower and string trimmer. The best thing about the hedge trimmer is it hardly uses any battery. I put it through some branches or limbs up to about an inch thick and it didn't really have any trouble. It is easy to operate and not that heavy. When you factor in the cost of the battery and charger, I am not sure how cost effective it comes out to be. I got the charger and two batteries when I got the mower. So far, I recommend everything from Ryobi I have.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by linkmodo 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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by westcoast 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.

Exceeded our expectations, way better than any corded unit we have had in the past. We have a row of 12 mature hedges at it handled them with ease and in less time. We had to change batteries 3/4 of the way through but we did a ton of trimming. So far, this is our favorite 40v product out of the 3 we have so far.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by tc221621 Great deal for the price
Great buy for the money if you don't need an additional battery. We have the blower and string trimmer, so we didn't really need another battery. Works great!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sunstar A very pleasant surprise!
I am very pleased with this purchase. No assembly required and it worked perfectly. The best surprise was that the battery stayed almost 3/4 charged after at least 45 minutes of trimming.
