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-

Customer Reviews

40-Volt and 24-Volt Cordless Hedge Trimmer Attachment is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 69.
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 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 4 out of 5 by from 24 volt cordless hedge trimmer I purchased this attachment so I could trim the hedges without cords. It function well but is a little cumbersome in tight places. Overall it works well and I will learn to use this thing comfortably.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Heavy, But Worth The Workout This is an excellent tool to have for any home gardener who wants to prune or trim their bushes and hedges with a professional look. If you are a person who trims their own yard and can stay on top of things (trimming as means of maintenance and not once a year) then this is for you! If you are a professional gardener, you can skip this product. It is too heavy (about 15lbs or more) and will give your arms and shoulders a workout. Gas poles are heavy too, but not this heavy! For me, I was able to trim/shave down two giant bushes in my front yard. By using this tool alone, it paid for itself after one use. I loved it Granted, I had to take my time since after 20 minutes or so my arms wanted to give out. But if you hold it properly, and every one is different, you can easily trim everything you need and not feel tired and worn out. I also trimmed two sets of hedges as well. This was a great tool to have instead of the hand trimmers. I was able to use the pole as a leveler on it. You will get a nice even cut horizontally. The blades are good for up to about an inch worth of thickness. What I cut was far less than that and went through the greenery like a hot knife through butter. It was just like any of the hand held trimmers. You may think when you first turn it on, it will not have the juice to cut anything, but it does! The low hum of the tool is deceiving. It packs a pretty good cutting punch. For the pole itself, it comes in two parts -- the trimmer and the extension pole. You hook these up together to get about 7 extra feet. This works with the 24v and 40v power poles. I have the 24v kind and it easily had enough power for what I needed. And the battery was minimally taxed. I used it a good 30 minutes straight and the battery power still had a 30% left. I also like that the middle extension pole had a foam grip to it. It is fairly large in diameter so it fits nicely in your hand. And the parts like other Ryobi products are all align the dots, stick it in, and then screw down for secure positioning. For those of you who have this series of products you know what I am talking about. Easy stuff! Other than the weight of the tool after extended use, this is a fantastic product. I have wanted one of these for years and so happy I finally got one. I can prune just about any tree, hedge or bush in the yard -- and NO cord!

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 5 out of 5 by from 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 out of 5 by from 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.
