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 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 AtlantaDude Exactly what I needed for those deep hedges. Sadly I don't think it will last long.
Unit can be used with the pole extension or just the hedge cutting head. With the 40volt power head it reaches to almost five and a half feet to cut those deep or tall hedges. As one would expect it is tiring when using it for long periods since a large part of the weight is way out at the end. Made out of cheap plastic so I doubt it would take much abuse nor last very long. But anything more durable would probably add weight.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Weekender Hedge trimmer attachment for Ryobi 40 volt
It does make the tool a bit heavy, but it does the job with ease. I like that the weed trimmer base has options for attachments and that's one reason why I purchased. Made trimming up arborvitae, clematis, and other bushes an easier task!

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.

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.
