Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GrandBob Great product for hard to reach places
I purchased the 40-Volt Cordless Hedge Trimmer Attachment in order to trim hedges that are too tall for use of the handheld hedger. This attachment requires the purchase of the Ryobi string trimmer in order for it to work. The Hedge Trimmer Attachment indeed accomplishes the mission of trimming hedges that are tall and awkward to reach. The attachment assembles to the Ryobi string trimmer with ease and can extend or collapse to your desired length usage. The cutting blade heads adjusts to 45, 90, and 180* and is ideal for trimming hard to reach areas. Pro’s : Powerful and sharp blades, ease of connecting to base String trimmer, extendable/adjustable pole, and great 40v lithium battery life. Cons: very heavy when extending the pole, requires purchase of the Ryobi Sting Trimmer base unit, the blade, although adequate, could be longer.

Great tool for the purpose intended. Extends my already great hedge trimmer so I can top the high hedge and other bushes and actually trees! No ladder needed anymore--can do it all from the ground. It's a little heavy when at full extension, but I can live with that. The jobs listed above now take about 1/2 the time they used to, and the pair of 40 volt batteries I have means I no longer have to mess with the messy gasoline trimmer, edger, blower, etc. Love it!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by frankf great product for the money
the unit worked exactly as advertised. A welcome addition to all my other Ryobi units.
it is , however very heavy when all extensions are put together, but worth it because I didn't need any ladders to cut the limbs.

I really needed a pole hedge trimmer and this is great! I also purchased the pole saw and am able to use the extensions from that for added reach! This is part of the ryobi connextion system that I believe they have stopped producing, however, all the attachments are still available anywhere they sell ryobi!

It is exactly what I needed to reach to the top of my hedge without using a ladder.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jazclrint GF loves it.
This is the last connextion attachment of I was yet to get. My GF used it to work on her rental property. She also had the pile saw attachment and my 40V chain saw, and mower. She said it was much easier on her back than she thought it would be, felt kind of cool with all the light weight easy to use tools.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by dougb Great tool and stronger than I thought!
I have the 24V base. I used this the day I got it and it was better than I expected. The pole extension allowed me to reach the top of my tall hedges easily. It chopped through some pretty thick sticks and the battery lasted a really long time. Don't have deal with a gas engine and don't have to drag an extension cord around. Great product!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BillBristol Good hedge trimmer
For anyone who has a tall shrub/hedge which requires more height than a step ladder to trim the top, this attachment works great. It is not heavy on top; which means that reaching the extra distance is not too heavy to manage. I have a regular electric hedge trimmer that works fine for shrubs at my height. But I have others which can exceed 12 feet tall. Reaching with any other trimmer is unsafe. This unit does the job. And I can adjust the cutter to 90 degrees so I can go straight up and cut the top outgrowth easily. So glad I purchased this. FYI, you need to purchase the battery operated trimmer separately, which I already had.
