Customer Questions & Answers

Will this work with my RY40000 Power Head?

I'm very confused about what works with what. Some of the answers say to use Expand-It attachments that gas power heads use, other attachments are for 40V. I have the RY40000 power head that is 40V. Will this hedge trimmer work with it?
Asked by: JosephInJersey
This attachment will work with the 40210B and 40201A. Look for the Trimmer head that has the Grey coupler at the end of the shaft.

Where can I find the power head for this device

Asked by: Veeg
You cannot use the Ryobi Model # RY40225 Expand-It 40-Volt Lithium-Ion Cordless Attachment Capable Power Head with this attachment. The Expand-it line has a different type of connection and the motor is in the power head not in the attachment. The power head you need is not sold in store and you will have to buy online. Hope this helps avoid the headache I have been going though

what is the over all length? how far of a reach can I expect from this pole hedge trimmer?

Asked by: chuck
Hi Chuck- The reach of the tool will depend on the reach of the user. The hedge trimmer itself is about 39 1/2" in length.When added to the power head the total length of the tools will be about 6'1". So the tool length plus the average reach of a person (about 3'), the tool can reach about 9'. Remember to always hold hedge trimmer with both hands when operating. Use a firm grip on the handles. The unit is used for cutting in either direction in a slow, sweeping action from side to side. An added note: the blade length is 18" and can cut up to 5/8". Thanks-

40-Volt and 24-Volt Cordless Hedge Trimmer Attachment is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 70.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works as expected. A bit difficult to operate due to balance issues and trigger location. Works as expected. A bit difficult to operate due to balance issues and trigger location.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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 out of 5 by from 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 1 out of 5 by from Not for 40-Volt X Trimmers (models RY40220) sold in store The trimmer for attachment is discontinued and no longer carried by Home Depot. You can only find it online, refurbished and at a higher price than the RY40220. Home Depot should stop selling this unit. Its confusing to the consumer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Like the Reviews 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?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Expand-it 40V hedge trimmer attachment After much searching I finally identified this Ryobi articulating head hedge trimmer attachment (RYAHT99) as compatible with my Expand-It attachment capable power head (RY40225). There are two very similar power heads with different attachment connectors, but the info on the Home Depot website did not clearly identify matching pieces. That said, now that I have used the unit, I'm satisfied with its quality and utility. At $100, it's expensive compared to other Ryobi attachments and to competing hedge trimmer attachments. The assembled trimmer is on the heavy side for lengthy use, but the 3/4" cut capacity handles large branches easily. On balance, it's another fine Ryobi yard implement.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Stuff 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.
