Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RexKramer Took down a fallen pepper tree in less than two hours
I bought this for my 40v Ryobi cordless power head (RY40225) after an old pepper tree in my backyard got too top heavy and split in half. While I wouldn't want to abuse the thing trying to cut the stump (because it probably would), it managed upwards of 7"-8" branches with little effort. See attached pic.
Am I happy with this? Of course! It should be noted that this was all done on a single charge. I even knocked a few branches off my fruitless mulberry with the remaining battery charge. We use Stihl HT 131's at work and this thing on a 40v battery pack gives the Stihl a run for its money. It's not as nicely balanced (I don't use straps) or as powerful as an actual pro power pruner, but it does the job it was designed for. Highly recommended for the average homeowner with a few trees to manage.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by GregC Pretty handy tool!
This polesaw is a great homeowner tool. I recently used it to completely limb 2 trees with branches up to 4" in diameter
The standard 40v battery lasts a very long time. One tank of bar oil lasted for a whole tree.
2 things worth mentioning. You must start the saw before contacting the branch or the chain won't move.
Also, do not use the head to drag branches down that are hung up after cutting. Twice I pulled the shaft apart at the connection and had to stop and put it back together. My gas powered Stihl at work will drag branches all day without issue.
Still, this is a very handy tool, it was priced right, and I don't regret my purchase at all.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Avee8tor Excellent product.
Product shipped to my home very quickly.
Everything in the box including chain oil. Quick and easy assembly which you would expect from Expand-It. Used it without the extension first and it cut easily through palm frongs and smaller tree limbs.
With the extension on it does become a bit ungainly but as long as you have the balance point it's fine. Again worked great on the trees and bushes without having to use high power!! Certainly better than buying a dedicated chainsaw without have to climb ladders too!
Word of advice - before using check the chain tension as I found straight out of the box was a little loose and would probably jump the track before long.

I have thoroughly enjoyed this Expand-it tool with the several attachments I've purchased thus for, I've used them all and each works very well.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Metalwolf83 Ryobi saw attachemnt.
The chain comes sharp outa the box and ready to rock and roll. Noticed the chain a little loose after using it but easy to snug up. With the saw head and the extension, it made my ryobi weed eater bog down and take a little bit to get up to rpm, But i think i mixed too rich for fuel and 2 stroke mix. With the saw head only my weed eater ran pretty good. Easy to use and install!! Very happy with this product.
