How do I remove the 40V battery from my Ryobi Hedge trimmer/

Does the HedgeSweep feature work well?

Asked by: TrailMoose
As long as you keep the edger cutter aligned with the new, horizontal hedge surface you are creating, the sweep should solve the problem it was designed to answer: cuttings dropping into and accumulating in the hedge behind the moving cutter bar where they will later lose color and degrade the hedge's appearance. One extra point to consider is to be sure when hedge trimming to sweep each swath forward forward only and swinging it off the hedge so that cuttings fall to the ground before reverse sweeping back to begin a new cutting swath on the hedge. Yes, doing so will require a little extra effort but the result will be a more attractive hedge when finished, and little or no extra toil spent trying to rake and pull dropped cuttings out of the hedge. Just the extra labor and time expenditure that the sweep fixture is meant to eliminate.

24 in. 40-Volt Lithium-Ion Cordless Hedge Trimmer - Battery and Charger Not Included is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 1843.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product with Wonderful Ryobi Customer Support I had a 14v hedge trimmer that repeatedly got stuck on the smallest twigs, was useless after 10 minutes, and the battery was hard to change. The 40v Ryobi intrigued me by its run time promise and that it cut dime sized thick branches. Used the hedge trimmer for the first time today and what a great great product. Battery is easy to put on and take off. It never got stuck on any branches or leaves. Did a fast cut of the whole front and back yard before dusk, and after 15-20 minutes hedge cutter was still going strong with battery still showing it was at full power. I was a little wary of the weight of the hedge trimmer—its closer in weight to a gas hedge trimmer than the underpowered battery operated ones. The hedge trimmer, however, is nicely balanced with a comfortable handle and easy to use safety trigger, and fatigue was never a problem. I needed to deal with Ryobi customer support and they got back to me quickly and made sure I was a satisfied customer.

Instead of spending nearly $300 for a gasoline-powered trimmer, I opted to give this one a try, since it was on sale for $99 and free delivery to my house. I placed the order April 15, 2019 and it was delivered the next afternoon to my door. I did the simple set-up and charged the battery, being eager to give the trimmer a try on some holly bushes that were in spring growth mode. My first impression is that this product is the real deal for the homeowner with typical shrubbery around the house. It quickly did the job on the holly bushes, and was not tiring to use. The battery had plenty of power left when I finished the job - this one was on my main concerns in buying a battery-powered tool - would it meet the demand and I can say it did, even though I have only used it a short time. I also own one of the gasoline Ryobi power heads with the trimmer attachment and it also works well but is somewhat heavy and tiring to use. Being longer, it is also not as easy to get tight spots around the house as this battery powered tool. I am pleased and thank Home Depot for the speedy delivery.

While using hedge clippers is great for the arms, as my hedges grew and I added more to my landscaping, it became a massive undertaking to get it all done in one day and then to endure the next day's sore muscles. This is a life saver! It's long enough for me to reach across a wide hedge and also for me to stretch it up to get the center top of my taller plants. It works like a charm, has a huge battery and great battery life and allowed me to do all of my yard in just one hour!!! And they look so much more even than when I did them with the clippers. As I kept going, I got tired and less able to keep them even. So thankful for this and hope it lasts a good long while. My neighbors all had to come out and look and admire. A few of them have the electric hedge trimmers but that only works within reach of the house electricity. This way I can trim the hedges in the alley at the same time!

I have been using the Ryobi 18 volt hedge trimmer for the past few years, and while it did an adequate job with the lighter stuff, it would bog down or get jammed easily with the thicker stuff. This trimmer is a huge upgrade over the 18 volt model. It has no problem with anything I have thrown at it. I've also been able to put away my pruners as it cuts some pretty thick stuff. It's rated to cut 3/4". It cuts as well or better than gas powered trimmers I have used. Others have stated it is kind of heavy, and that is relative I guess as I found it very lite, maneuverable and very easy to use. Although I could use one hand with the 18 volt while I held brush back with my other hand. This unit requires two hands. However I had no issues with heavy ornamental grass and such without the need to position it as it cuts without help. It comes with a 2.4 AH battery which I'm sure is fine, however I used the 3.6 Ah battery from my 40 volt blower and it went all day without needing a charge and I used it heavily.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best hedge trimmer ever - and it is cordless! I am extremely impressed with the power and reliability of this battery-operated tool. I also have the Ryobi smaller cordless hedger for quick trims, but this Ryobi 40-volt trimmer is a serious tool. It is well balanced and comfortable in the hand. I purchased this in April of 2013, and have never had any problems with it. The battery still charges as well as it did when new and the blades are still performing well. (I do make sure to clean the blades after each use and keep them well oiled while using the hedger.) It does come with a scabbard, although I would have like to have one a little sturdier. It has a good weight and it does whatever job I tackle with it. The battery lasts quite a while for trimming and I like that there are battery status lights on it to show exactly how much power is remaining. By the time the battery gets low, my old arms are ready for a rest anyway - but the quick charger only takes about 90 minutes to recharge and I can continue my chores. The removable sweeper comes in handy for keeping the area clear while trimming.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't beat this cordless trimmer I needed a trimmer that would help me keep the grass and reeds growing along the canal behind my house that didn't involve running an extension cord across the water. I made the mistake of first buying an inexpensive light cordless trimmer (not Ryobi) it wasn't strong enough to cut through the thickets and the battery would run down to quickly. Since I already own a Ryobi electric string trimmer and Ryobi electric lawn mower, it wasn't expensive to just by the 24" hedge trimmer without a battery or charger...I already had two chargers and three batteries, so I gave it a try...WOW, it's fantastic, one sweep of the trimmer and the weeds are trimmer down liked a hedge. I have used it heavily to trim them down, walked across the cannel to trim from the water side, how did I live without this. Keeping them trimmed down is no longer a headache, my neighbors want me to trim theirs down as well... and why not, it's a breeze. All my trimming and the battery still showed 3/4 charge still.

I was pleasantly surprised when I first started to use this on my 1/2" or so brush around here, it actually worked better than a chainsaw as it didn't pull back on the little bushes and slap you in the hand and sometimes face. . . and actually cut pretty fast for the first couple hours. However, it slows down once you cut some, probably needs sharpening or else new blades. . . .one thing puzzles me with it, as the instruction manual with it says to use a 1/4" round file for sharpening, and while that may work good way deep in the cutting teeth, it seems to me that you should use either a flat file or half round file on the more flat surfaces of the teeth, right? . . . I am just not sure on that. I definitely recommend the machine, especially at the price I got it at when it was on sale at Home Depot.

Before using the Ryobi Trimmer I used a trimmer that required the use of an electrical cord. I have cut more cords then I care to mention. The Ryobi trimmer is cordless; so that's a benefit to me and less aggravation, I am also unable to lift heavy because of an arthritis condition. The Ryobi Hedge Trimmer is lite enough to use without over-exerting myself. Thanks for making this product available to the public.
