Rated 4 out of 5Â by RYOBIUser Easy to use Hedge Trimmer
The trimmer came together quickly, was very easy to use and work well on varies types of bushes and shrubs. I like it because it also compliments my other Ryobi 18V tools.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by JBDelta JUNK - ABSOLUTE GARBAGE
I signed up for a homedepot.ca account just to write this review. In fact this is the second attempt to write a review after the home depot rejected my first attempt due to some unkind language.
Anyone considering this Ryobi hedge trimmer be warned. The blades are dull, the cutting speed is slow and the battery is purposely low capacity (they want you to buy the proper size one separately). This trimmer couldn't even cut the thin stems on a cedar hedge. It's just weak, dull and underpowered. It stalls on the lightest foliage. It's nothing more than a kids toy. The manufacturer should be ashamed for such a junky product. It was returned within days of purchase. The retailer should be ashamed for selling it too. I am a professional product designer.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by jc2bits Great Trimmer, HANDLE BREAKS EASILY!
I bought my THIRD of these hedge trimmers yesterday. It is easy to use, powerful, and has a long life for a cordless tool. I LOVE it except for the FLIMSY outer handle which broke on both my previous ones (see photo). The part is currently out of stock and has been for a while, so I am forced to buy another one.
I use these trimmers a lot for arbor vitae, yew, forsythia and "wild" hedges, as well as trimming beds of euonymus, pachysandra, etc. on our Â½ acre+ lot. It is more powerful and capable than a competing brand I also own, which explains why I keep buying this model despite its ONE MAJOR FLAW.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by Jack Worked, until it broke
Works on small diameter twigs, provided they are young. The handle broke off when trimming a hedge. I don't think I was overly aggressive with the trimming, it's just that the handle is make of plastic (maybe ABS, not sure). The battery life is short, and you really need the larger battery, however, my arms are about done by the time the battery is.
