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.

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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BigRig One of my top 5 Yard Tool Purchases
Never used a gasoline hedge trimmer but this sure beat dragging a corded model around. I use the 40v battery and it is very powerful. No problem taking out an older hedge with half to one inch "limbs". The extensions are great! Used it for 30 minutes straight and the battery was still going strong. Very happy with this tool.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by FrankS cut weeds very well
I have about 10,000 sf yard full of weeds after couple of rains. I was really concerned so I decided give this tool a shot. It cuts of low or tall weeds very well and very fast. You have to have some muscle though to be able to hold it with front trimmer levelling and sweeping low as weed root level. take breaks after few mins. it does sore my bicyps. it cuts weeds with ease and quick. it touches and weeds falls down. very efficient to mow down large yard. much better than I thought. now whole yard weeds mowed down under 30 mins. surprised me and my wife! would recommend. good tool.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tanimal Beats using a set of hedge clippers
I bought this because I already had the 40v string trimmer. I thought it would kill the battery as much trimming as I did, but the battery held up well and I even cut some limbs later with the pole saw attachment. Love that I am able to reach the top of my holly bushes. It's a little un balanced but it's really long for getting those high places. I suggest working on the guns if you're having trouble managing the trimmer.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SEGreenville Exactly what I needed
The product is exactly what I needed to trim very tall shrubs around the house. I knocked down the ease of use because when in the full extension config, it is a little heavy and you have to pay attention to keep it from getting away from you. The design is that the power for the unit is in the battery at the back, but the actual motor is in the head. This makes it very balanced to just pick it up, but when you use it you know it's a little "front heavy" if that makes any sense at all. Just hold on and pay attention and it has plenty of power in the 40 volt model to trim even mature shrubs. I would buy again and recommend it as long as you can handle heavier power equipment

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ANTONIO A superior battery-operated attachment tool for yardwork.
I believe this to be an exceptional product. There are two length options which are very handy for differing landscape plantings. Plenty of power -- didn't get hung-up in my ornamental grasses. Not noisy... for a hedge-trimmer.
I could not rate it excellent for "Quality", since I've only had it for a month. I'll let you know in a year or so.
I could not rate it excellent for "Ease if Use", since I don't have someone else doing the work for me.
Only downside -- the blade guard really doesn't fit well.
To keep it clean while storing, put a long sweatsock over it instead. Afterall, necessity is the mother of invention.
