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 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.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Biker Expand It Hedge Trimer and Power Supply
I had doubts about the expand it system but needed a long handled extension hedge trimmer. However it has turned out to be a great buy. I bought the electric cord power supply and the extended hedge trimmer. It has excellent cutting power and reach. It can be taken apart and stored without difficulty. The only complaint is the trigger system. It is not very responsive. It has a safety grip lock on top of the handle and a squeeze trigger below. You must squeeze both to operate. Great for safety but a little hard to manipulate even for big hands.
I purchased a Ryobi electric edger about 15 years ago and still use it. I hope the mechanical and moving parts to this expand It hedge trimmer holds up as well.

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
