Rated 4 out of 5Â 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.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Virg Works as I intended it to.
I purchased this trimmer to specifically trim a Red Tip Photinia hedge that is about 6 feet high. It did a marvelous job reaching from the front of the hedge to the fence. When I cut it with an electric trimmer I had to shove my ladder into the hedge just to reach all the way to the fence. No more now I can reach all the way to the back with ease. I only wish that my Troy-Built power head wasn't so heavy. I have also found that the edger cuts Hawthornes, Box Leaves, Loropetalum's, and knockout roses with ease. I had a little trouble trimming my Oleander bushes with it though. The limbs were a little to large for the trimmer which made for a slow task. It did cut it successfully, but it was slow going.
The quality of the trimmer was very good and it fit onto my Troy-Built weed eater just fine. The blades seem to oscillate back and forth faster than my old electric trimmer. I do not know if that is good or bad because I had to back off on the speed of the power head to have better luck with the oleander bushes. I wouldn't hesitate to purchase another one of these refurbished units. For the price you would be hard pressed to beat this deal.

Rated 4 out of 5Â 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 out of 5Â by TruthSquad Excellent quality and cuts well
I've attached this hedge trimmer to my Ryobi weed eater. It is excellent quality and out of the box you will not be able to tell it's reconditioned. It looks and works great like new. You can reach areas on the tree or bush that are high or hard to reach. Overall I gave this trimmer good rating because it's fairly heavy once you attach it to the trimmer engine and such. It out performs the electric ones that does not have the capacity to cut large branches.

The shaft was too short an didnt engage my trimmer head. Nice job reconditioning this one. Wonder if you even check them out when returned or just send them to another buyer. Bought Homelite Expand-it. Alot better trimmer
