I could you a trimmer which could be angled parallel to the ground.
That way I could use it to cut grass/mow grass.
also I'd like a small trimmer which operates mechanically
like this trimmer. that would be a perfect accessory for this tool.
this would be a 3 or 4 tooth in line front mounted parallel to ground.
I remember (back in tha day) seeing these hand powered trimmers
something like that would be Great cause I could do light detail
trimming without bending over.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by luvboating I like it
I bought this to attach to a Troy Bilt trimmer with a 4 cycle engine. It is isn't good for precision trimming. I finish up some shrubs with my handheld electric hedge trimmer for a more precision look. With my Troy Bilt, I need to make use of positioning the hedge trimmer attachment so that I don't stall the engine. I can position the attachment in all three position holes encompassing 270 degrees of travel. If I keep the carburator in the "normal" position or facing up, everything works ok. However, if I face the carburator down, I have stalling problems that can be painful to correct. Other than that, it sure beats dragging around and periodically cutting an electric cord with my other hedge trimmers. If a reconditioned item is available for any product, I always buy it instead of new. The money savings are great and have seldom had problems with reconditioned.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ABCritter Good Unit Overall
I was looking for an extended reach hedger for some of those hard to reach jobs. This was an inexpensive solution to the problem. As an expansion unit to the trimmer I already have it fit nicely.
The ony negative to the unit I have is the felt square that is at the base of the blade was gone with in moments after the first use.
This is not a crisis, but will require watching that area for debris getting into the mechanism.

Works great, a little heavy for shrubs that are overhead, but worked great.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Neal Very Disappointing
The hedger worked very well the first year of use. Trimmed everything with little issues. Then it seemed to lose power. Twigs started jamming the blades. Next, it seems the thing got very hot. I could tell the gears were slipping/stripping. I was only trimming simple bushes. I am very disappointed by the longevity of this unit. It will not last. I've had it for two years. It is basically inoperable now. Keep that in mind. I will say that it is very easy to use though... the only reason for 2 stars! Very handy for large and tall shrubs.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Alan289c Sturdy but can become heavy.
This attachment can be used on any brand that as the universal power head connection. It is durable as I am not one who is delicate when it comes to utilizing power tools. The one negative I have to mention is that after using it for a while it can become quite heavy. I have 5 acres in SE Arizona with 100+ Mesquite trees and I use this to trim trim the new growth after the monsoon starts and the trees begin growing. It has reduced my trimming time tremendously and I have had zero problems with it.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by builder454 Not so good...
I had read some reviews and noted that some people had problems with this attachment. I was hoping they were isolated incidents and that I would be one of the satisfied ones. Mine seemed to work OK when I installed it on my Craftsman motor, but stopped as soon as I started trimming some branches. This was similar to the experiences other reviewers reported. I disassembled it and was able to make it work, but it would have been much better to have it function correctly as purchased. The item I bought was refurbished, I don't think it was tested before being resold to me.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by EJOD Reconditioned Expand-It, Hedge Trimmer Attachment
I purchased this for use on a really overgrown hedge and it surpassed my expectations with its ability to cut through the tough branches (3/8 inch and smaller) without any problem maintaining the stroke.
I have discovered that many reconditioned items are actually better out-of-the-box than brand new items as the flaw has already been found and fixed.
While it is not really suitable for fine trimming it easily handles most trimming and is especially handy for the high stuff that would otherwise require a ladder.
The ability to attach in either a horizontal or verticle orientation ensures proper weight distribution and guarantees adequate fuel flow.
