Answer: 
Related question to Ryobi Outdoors: You make reference to "tall hedges" and which type of trimmer to get: Could you please define "tall"? I have a privet hedge about 7' high and 3" thick, and obviously would like to get the tool which would work best. Thanks!

Answer: 
So how much does this attachment weigh? Bought the $70 Ryobi non articulating attachment last week. Gets a bit heavy after 20 minutes or so trimming above chest level on non-linear shrubs.

Hey firedog, It all depends on how long you will be using it. The hedge trimmer attachment is a little lighter than the string trimmer attachment that comes with our2 and 4 cycle trimmers. If you have tall hedges and will be doing it for a while you may want to go with a dedicated hedge trimmer.

Answer: 
I have used this attachment to cut blackberry bushes for 6 hours - about 2 hours at a time. It does not seem too heavy to me (cutting uphill in pretty dense underbrush and cuttings). It does help to use the shoulder strap but most of the time the strap is slack.
I'm 70 year old and fit but no Hulk Hogan.

Answer: 
Hey firedog -- If you are trimming high hedges for a long time you may want to consider buying a stand alone hedge trimmer. However, if our hedges are a little shorter and don't take a really long time to cut then this would be the perfect tool for you!

Not sure what you mean by an extension tube. There is a 12" tube that fits into the tube on the power unit, but it's not really an extension tube.

Answer: 
No, it does not come with an extension. Attached to the power head, it is cumbersome enough to handle, an extension on this rather heavy attachment would render it nearly impossible to use effectively.

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 86 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very Good Product I used the trimmer on my 1/4 mile road to the cabin. It easily cut grass, ferns, raspberry bushes, thistles and small diameter (1/4") stems. It did bog down in heavy cutting. I have mine attached to a Troy-Bilt trimmer - although inserting the trimmer was tight it did work well as noted. I really like the angle adjustment which was easy to use and well constructed. Overall the unit seems to be better constructed than others on the market. Make certain the bar is well oiled. This is heavier in weight. June 20, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good but: I had another hedge trimmer attachment that wouldn't cut bigger branches and didn't articulate so I bought this one. It does cut bigger branches but some of the branches get pushed out of the cutter head because they are too flexible. The only thing I was disappointed in was the articulating head only rotates in one direction. I really wanted it to go both ways to trim branches over my head. July 5, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bush Hogging Mobile I got this to keep the stream bank from over growth. This is highly effective at cutting grass, but also small saplings growing on the banks or on the bottom of the steam. July 12, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ryobi Trimmer Excellent product so far. Great for trimming our camellias and azaleas. No problems to date. June 25, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by I wish it had a longer cutting bar I ordered this after reading some negative reviews of competing products with longer cutting bars. The cutting bar is a bit short but, so far, I haven't stripped any gears while trimming. It takes two hands to adjust the angle of the cutting bar and if you plan on trimming hedges over about 4' tall you will need to find some sort of drive-shaft extension. I got this with the idea of being able to trim a 6' hedge without a ladder. So far, that has not happened due to limited reach. For most trimming a dedicated electric hedge trimmer would probably work better at lower cost. May 10, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Product This is the 2nd articulating hedge trimmer I purchased. I use them for trimming grass, weed, & small brush on trails of 2 properties we manage. They work great & are competitively priced. Would recommend for light to medium trimming tasks. June 14, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by great product Easy to assemble and use. Only issue is it a little heavy. We also use an extra extension to reach on to the side of the pond to cut grass. With the extension it is really heavy June 2, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works great A little heavy depending on unit your attaching to i was using a four stroke but it worked well May 31, 2016
