This tool is great, it has a swivel function to allow cutting at different angles. The multiple extension poles allows you to go from 2-9 feet. Snapping the extensions together and to the main unit is quick and easy. It has plenty of power and the batteries are long lasting. I purchased a complete line of these 40 volt products (Trimmer, blower, 14 in chainsaw, hedge trimmer attachment, and this pole chainsaw attachment). I would recommend adding Model # RY40210CMB - It is the Trimmer, blower, charger and battery. You will be happy with all of this stuff. I have a large yard and I'll of these tools have made my work a lot easier.

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.

Trimmer works well. Blades are sharp and have retained sharpness after 8 to 10 hours of use on junipers
When attached to the power unit without the extension it is well balanced but heavy; when attached with the extension the unit becomes out of balance and is even heaver.

Easy to assemble and works great.
Price was reasonable.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Lindy Nice trimmer but . . .
Love it but is a little too heavy for me to comfortably use it for anything too far away and higher up branches. Perhaps I need to build up my arm muscles more. :)

Perfect additional attachment to my Ryobi. This has worked exactly as described and saved me from having to buy another tool.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Hockeypuck Hedge Trimmer Attachment
The hedge trimmer is attached to the power base with an extension to provide for a longer reach. Problem is the operator has to be Godzilla to hold it for any period of time. Poorly balanced with the heavy battery pack and the heavy attachment. The trimmer runs slower then expected and does not cut sufficently. On the other hand, the power handle and the weed wacker attachment is excellent.

We bought the trimmer/edger (We like it!) which advertised the hedge trimmer attachment but we can't find one - even in talking directly with Ryobi. HOW DO WE GET ONE?
