Does this product match up with the TB57SS?

Asked by: Mike
It appears that the model number you gave is for the Troy-bilt motor that accepts accessories and that should take this unit just like my Troy-bilt.

Will it attach to a Troy-Bilt 2-cycle trimmer model TB32 EC?

Should work on a Troy-bilt. I have one of their 4 cycle motor units and have used non-Troy-Bilt attachments.

Expand-It 17-1/2 in. Universal Hedge Trimmer Attachment is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 287.

After accidentally cutting the electrical cord with my old plug-in electric hedge trimmer, I decided it was time to try the Expand-It attachment for my Ryobi weed-eater. I was a little skeptical at first because I have had bad experiences with battery powered tools in the past, especially when they are doing heavier duty tasks like cutting. This is an excellent tool, has tons of power, and after trimming for an hour straight I still have a half a battery left to do all my weed eating. I highly recommend this to anyone with any size yard, as it is incredibly nice to be able to move around with ease while trimming.

Bought this a couple of years ago and left it in the box in the garage until this year. Should have read the reviews, but bought it at the store as an impulse item. I have a lot of hedges to trim and always looking for a better, faster way, so I bought it. Just put it on my Ryobi trimmer straight out of the box and it ran for twenty minutes and stopped working. The gears inside seem to have self-destructed on ligustrum hedges! Of course after two years the warranty does not apply so return is not possible. Would recommend buying unit with more robust stainless steel inner workings and not waste your money on this.

This attachment to my string trimmer does get me the extra distance. It does run slower than a stand alone trimmer. It is somewhat awkward to use and get the right angle. That is why 4 stars, but it does work fo

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Real time saver..... Bought this attachment as a temporary replacement for a 48" hedger. I have over 200' of Mock Orange hedge that is 6' high and 5' wide that took hours to cut. I couldn't believe it. I had the whole thing cut in under 2 hours. Well balanced, it was a breeze to cut both the sides and top with ease. Why I never used a pole hedger before, I chalk up to a "Why change" attitude. Silly me. It has paid for itself on the first cut, and I see many more to come. As an attachment it's even more affordable. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great reach For the past 24 years I have always used electric trimmers and they worked. BUT on the recommendation of a neighbour I purchased this Ryobi attachment and I have no regrets. The ease of operation and the greater reach of this trimmer has reduced the amount of time it takes to trim our hedges and shrubs. Not to mention the now non existent power cord that was constantly getting tangled in the hedge or cut. I've had it now for just over a month and there is no going back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works As Designed I purchased this for my 25-year-old electric plug-in (yes it still is going strong), not knowing if the new attachment would fit my ancient, but reliable unit. It did! And it works as designed. It's comforting to know when I upgrade to the 50V unit in the future all my current attachments will work with new technology. (Very soon. My housing on my plug-in unit cracked last summer when it cushioned me during a minor fall while trimming.). See? It's amazing! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

I have the Ryobi weed eater I bought to replace a cheap gas model! so this was a great addition. 2. I was tired of trimming my shrubs and hedges by hand. So i figured i would give this a try. WOW, just wow. it took me no time at all to trim everything! but the real hard part about this, was getting it back from my wife! she had so much fun using it! It cuts through the tuff stuff like butter! If you are looking to trim with ease, this is the attachment for you!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I bought this unit to replace a much more expensive competitors similar unit that wore out. I would say that it is almost as good as that unit and I am quite pleased. It works well , slightly shorter. A good feature is that as it attaches to a separate gas power unit so over time if needed one or the other can be replaced separately. Time will tell how good this unit lasts. Again cost is a big concern in the buying decision. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
