The trigger safety button gets to be very tiresome after extend use.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Snoopy1 Good cordless hedge trimmer for light trimming
I like the versatility of this trimmer since it can be used with an electrical cord or a battery pack. When you run it on the battery, it is adequate for light trimming ( hedges with branches that are not too thick) but it would struggle with heavier jobs. It weighs about the same as previous electric trimmers that I have owned, so there is no advantage there. I just like the ability to do the lawn work without the need to drag cords all over.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Rich Good for Light Use
I bought this trimmer for the small shrubs around my house and it works well for them. At the same time I bought a corded trimmer for the long, thick hedge I have and I am glad I did because the battery trimmer cannot handle heavier jobs even of short duration. I like the fact that the battery charges fast and I can grab the trimmer and get to work without fussing with a cord. The strokes per minute (1200) on this trimmer are about one third that of a corded trimmer and that takes some getting used to. It is easy to use , lightweight and ready to go out of the box after a charge. But I did not think the blade was sharp as it should be when I got the trimmer so I spent a few minutes putting and edge on it. Over all it suits my needs very well for light work.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by DELTAD DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY - WORST PURCHASE EVER!
Purchased this unit three years ago. Have had problems with it after a years use. The battery seems to have an issue where it will not recharge, when placed on the recharging unit. Home Depot was able to get the battery replaced for me twice. However, the same thing happened each time within less than a year. Make sure that you hold onto your receipt and any paperwork that Ryobi sends, otherwise, if Home Depot can not help you, than Ryobi will use any excuse to void their warranty. Ryobi's customer service is terrible and the quality of this item was pathetic. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY ON A COMPANY THAT ONLY OFFERS POOR CUSTOMER SERVICE.

Works great. No cords to limit and no gas to refill.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by gwg46 Perfect LIGHT hedge trimmer
Don't expect this to be like a commercial grade hedge trimmer. Look to "Little Wonder " for that. But it is an excellent way to keep the bushes looking groomed after the heavy duty spring cutting. And since it uses the Ryobi-one batteries, you csn keep trimming all day just by switching batteries. And the weight and ballance let you do that without undue fatigue.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SteveK Works great, very convenient
I own several of the Ryobi 18V batter tools, and the Hedge Trimmer was a great addition. Just slap a battery in, and I'm trimming my bushes easily without dragging an electric cord around. The unit is light enough that my arms don't get tired holding it. Since its so easy to use, I trim my bushes more often, which in turn makes the job easier each time.

I love this trimmer. Especially the batteries. They last quite awhile. This is the only brand I will ever purchase from this moment on <3
