Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by KCDad So far, so good
Bought the Ryobi 40-volt lithium-ion cordless hedge trimmer for my wife because she has the Ryobi 40-volt lithium-ion cordless string trimmer and could interchange the battery. So far, she has been satisfied with the products and the battery life. My ratings of "Excellent" are based on the fact she is not unhappy with the hedge trimmer. If she were unhappy, I am sure I would have heard about it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TheExtensionCordKiller Ryobi fan adds another 40 volt tool to his arsenal
Ryobi's 40 volt 24" hedge trimmer has provided me with another way to speed up my weekly gardening tasks.
It is powerful as my previous corded hedge trimmer but without the need for finding a nearby electrical outlet or extension cord long enough. This makes my weekend yard chores of trimming and cleaning up my large bushes and hedges no longer as dangerous since I have cut into my extension cords while trimming bushes more than once.
I now have a Ryobi 40 volt battery
powered yard tool family consisting of their 16" lawn mower, string trimmer, leaf blower, and the great 24" hedge trimmer; all making my yard upkeep speedy, quiet, and almost at zero cost.

Was pleased to see that it came with a plastic guard for the blade teeth and the sweep for the top of the blade. This was the first time I've seen the sweep and it works nicely. Definitely would spend the extra money for the charger and battery since it's more expensive to buy them separately. It's light enough to use for areas above shoulder height but apparently wasps don't like to be disturbed that have a nest inside the bush or hedge. Got stung by a couple of the occupants of a nest I was not aware of.

I picked up a Ryobi 40v string trimmer earlier this summer and it worked well, so I purchased this hedge trimmer a few weeks later. It trims great and the battery life exceeds my expectations!

Very pleased with the power generated by the battery. Battery life is incredible. Trimmer comes completely assembled and ready to go. Cuts through everything effortlessly. I already had a battery and charger for my Ryobi leaf blower. No more hassles with electric cords. Really love this trimmer. Strongly recommend it To anyone who wants a powerful trimmer.

Used this hedge trimmer at my home and my daughter's. Took about 45 minutes. Did a very good job and the battery was only about half used. Couldn't be more pleased!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ziggy Easy to use, a little heavy
This was a great investment. Compared to other models, this product has a long cutting area and good power cutting through branches. It made quick work of my hedges. The only problem with the hedge trimmer is the weight. The battery is fairly heavy making the whole unit heavy on one side, but I don't have much to cut so it is fine. Not having the cord makes it easy to just take out and start trimming. If you have the 40 volt battery on another yard tool, this is well worth getting.
