Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Grandma Should not be sold without the handle and battery attachment.
My husband tore up a 4 month old Ryobi trimmer/edger when he tried to detach the Handle/Battery holder as it pulled out the male connector from the Ryobi Trimmer/edger. Was unable to get the adapter put back in place. So now the pole sole has its on Handle/Battery Holder as one complete unit. We have another Ryobi trimmer/edger that we have had for about 3 years and love it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by chino 40-volt weed wacker(Model RY40001A) worked great with this attachment.
Can't beat it for under $100 and free shipped to store. It come with shoulder strap, small bottle of oil. Chainsaw head and two extensions. It some weight with the battery maybe about 30 to 40lbs.

Works great. Used for 20min and didnt put a dent in my battery. Used on a 6" branch and it got through. Going to use on bigger branches until i find its max. I was skiptical on electric but so far im impressed

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by LWinthrop The saw cuts well but the weight is unreal. It is built so ALL the extensions have to be utilized. This makes it too long for some applications and it is VERY unwieldy and heavy. I am now having to treat a sprained elbow due to the weight. I would NOT recommend this product.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Gman Didn't cut it!
I cut about three 4-inch limbs before it ceased to work. The problem: one of the connectors came loose and I had to return it. Flimsy construction. It's too bad because it would have been a useful addition to my 40 volt system. By the way, my 40 volt trimmer has since stopped working as well. But that is after three years (OF RELATIVELY LIGHT USE). Ryobi has a good idea here, but they haven't executed well.

Used this pole saw with my 40v power head to take down some small trees hanging over my neighbors fence. It worked great, the battery lasted a long time, just keep an eye on your oil level. It gets a little wobbly with all the extensions but did the job. If you know how to properly operate a chainsaw, this pole saw will work great for you.

Good quality and easy to assemble. Works well at cutting branches. Only difficulty is getting used to wielding it into position - it is somewhat top-heavy. However, easy to use once there and has easy chainbar oil filler.

Arrived ahead of schedule and works very well for my use. I've removed branches from a holly and drake elm trees. Attachments are easy to assemble/exchange and battery life is excellent using edger and saw for average sized yard. It's a bit heavy for an old person like me, but the strap helps to manage. Definitely plan to add other 40 volt products in an effort to eliminate need for gas/electricity.
