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 Cla Really like the product, after solving a problem with the extension pole.
I would give it a 5 but had to modify the extension pole. I bought the Ryobi 825 25CC Saw. It worked fine hooked up direct to my Ryobi, but when I installed the extension pole it would not work. I determined that the extension was 1/2 inch to long for the cable to engage. I also tried it on a Yard Man to make sure there was not a problem with my Ryobi, I had the same problem. After I shortened the extension pole 1/2 inch and remounted the retainer ball lock, it worked fine. I used it to cut some large branched off of several trees and had no problem. It really worked well.
It was either a fluke from the factory, or there is a certain percentage of the extensions poles that are flawed.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Chris Did not perform well
I liked the 40V system it works well with my hedge trimmer. However this saw dose not cut very efficiently . It takes twice as long as my manual pole saw

It works just like a chainsaw, but for limbs. It will get a little weighty if you have a lot to do, use the sling. I have had no problem with cutting up to a 7" limb with it. The chain needs normal care, keep it snug, not tight.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MPWNaples Handiest Attachment ever!
Living in Florida, there are always bushes and various palms to trim. We have the Ryobi blower and weed trimmer, so this attachment was perfect ~ better than hiring someone!
Not only is it easy to use, it has a safety shoulder strap to help carry and the directions for maintaining are easy to follow!
