Answer: 
I'd be surprised if it didn't...the Expand-It attachments are made by Ryobi to fit a variety of power heads. Certainly the attachments will fit their own power heads. I have a Toro 25 cc power head, and all of the Ryobi Expand-It attachments work with it.

I have a 26cc Toro Power Head that drives the following Ryobi attachments extremely well: String Trimmer, Edger, Chain Saw, and Hedge Trimmer. That's what a power head is designed to do. - drive various attachments so you only have to buy one motor.

Expand-It 17-1/2 in. Universal Hedge Trimmer Attachment is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 167.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Little heavy but worked great Purchased this unit last weekend and was not sure how it was going to work. I have been using the Ryobi system for the last 10 years and am on my 3rd power head, of which the new head has been improved from the old one. I believe in the review process from others when it comes to buying stuff, and to others that gave it a low rating I must say that in my opinion you must have received a lemon and or you just do not understand the idea behind the Expand It system. The bottom line on the hedge trimmer attachment is yes it is a little heavy, but from out of the box to job done was a breeze. And in case you may think I am a buff boy I am not, infact I am pushing 55 and am a quad amputee with prosthetic legs(below the knees)and no hands(prosthetic devices). So if I can do it I would hope you can to.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed ... The hedge trimmer attachment makes the entire unit very long, clumsy, heavy and difficult to use. It is powerful and cuts much faster than the electric hedge trimmers I've always used so it has that going for it. I would say this unit was designed by someone who has never bothered to use it. Obviously, I'm stuck with the thing now so will continue to use it but if I'd had a chance to try one before buying I'd have skipped the purchase. This thing is so heavy you really need to stand on a step ladder even for short hedges just so you don't have to heist this monster more than waist high. I'd definitely not recommend this trimmer to anyone, especially those like me who don't have muscles of steel and the stamina to go with them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good cuts, good reach. bought this to combat my 10' hedge. I had an electric trimmer that was 21" long, but it still would not reach the middle, and I had to move the ladder several times, fight the electrical cord, ect... Bought this and attached it to my Craftsman trimmer and I'm very happy. I cut the hedges in less then 1/2 the time, don't have to fight the cord, and best of all, I can reach clear across the hedge. Very glad I bought this product. Giving it an average durability since I've owned it less then 1 month. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Good This attachment works very well and does a great job on hedges. I had one before and I wore it out so I purchased another. This along with the motor attachment can get heavy after a while but it cuts so quickly it is worth the work.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for the homeowner with a hedge I think that this is the 3rd or 4th one of these that I've bought. I use them hard all around my home. I live on 1.25 acres and we have LOTS of blackberries around the property and a laurel hedge around the house so rather than using my trimmer 2 or 3 times a year I use it a lot for hours on end. If I knew 20 years ago what I know now I may have bought a commercial trimmer but now that we may sell to developers in the near future I'm not going to invest that much money in something I won't be needing for the long term.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well out of the box, convenient compared to wired electric trimmer Overall to date works well. The extended length compared to a hand held trimmer helps reach the tops of bushes and shrubbery so there is no need for a ladder. It is easy to change out. Blades seemed sharp enough. Only maintenance is just keep it oiled and cleaned of clippings. It is a bit heavy but that is mostly the engine. The truth shall be how it is doing in a year or two years and longer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great hedge trimmer but a bit heavy This trimmer definitely gets the job done. It was easy to install on my weedeater and gobbled up the hedges. The only bad thing I can say is it's rather heavy. So, it you have high hedges, be ready for a shoulder and arm workout. Either way, definitely beats doing it the old fashioned way with hand clippers. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great and as expected This is the first Expand-It part I have bought for my Ryobi Trimmer. It was very easy to install and use. I will be getting other attachments for this product. It made trimming my front hedges a breeze. The only thing, which is minor, that I wish was in the hedge trimmer attachment retail box was some oil to lubricate the blades the first time.
