I’ve been happy with this trimmer attachment. I used it to trim our hedges and bushes which included azalea and rhododendron plants. It says it will cut through a 3/8” thick branch and while I noticed a few branches that thick that it curt through it didn’t cut through them without a bit of a struggle. This does well on smaller branches though and since I already have the power head, this is a logical choice vs. purchasing a stand-alone hedge trimmer. Overall, I’m happy with this attachment as it does almost everything I need it to do as a homeowner.

Just purchased this today. What a waste of money. I hope it is just a product defect isolated to mine. I have other attachments and they work great, would give the others 5 stars but not this. I’ve added a picture of what my shrubs look like after about 5 passes in the same spot. You can clearly see the leave are stripped off the branch. I was tired of doing maintenance on my Poulan Trimmer every time I used it it because either it wouldn’t start or the pull chord kept getting messed up. Would have been better off doing the maintenance at this point. I would have been done but the way it’s going I will not be done any time soon.

I have tall shrubs that are difficult to trip along the top, so I was excited to use this with my Ryobi rechargeable electric weed eater base. It worked great and allowed me to have the long reach across the top of the shrubs. The only negative observation is that it didn't seem to cut as cleanly as my Black & Decker electric plug-in trimmer, but it still did the job. Also, when connected to a head unit, the whole thing is pretty heavy, so you might consider that before making the purchase. Overall, though, it did the job well and I eliminated another tool that needed an extension cord by just buying this attachment.

I bought this unit to attach to my Ryobi power head and to replace an electric trimmer and cord. The Expand-It line is very easy to operate and maintain. I have very tall hedges on one side of my house and with the additional tube for added length I was able to trim them while standing on a ladder with ease. It does have a little weight with the complete assembly (powerhead, extra pole, trimmer head) but it isn't that big of a deal honestly (still beats running with a non extendable electric unit with a long cord to drag around). My next purchase will be the brush cutter attachment! I introduced myself to the Expand-It lineup because I was in need of a chainsaw and noticed Ryobi had a gas power head with

I bought a Ryobi battery powered string trimmer and use it every week. Was looking at a compatible hedge trimmer that would use the same batteries and then found the Expand-It attachment to my string trimmer. Very easy to swap out the attachment and worked great for my needs. I would recommend that anyone moving from gas or electrical corded equipment to a series of battery powered yard tools consider the Ryobi line and this attachment.

Great for hard to reach spots
Customer review from ryobitools.com logo
I just got this last week and I love it! I thought the Exand-It system sounded great but I was holding out for a 40v brushless model. Boy am I glad it finally came out. I have the trimmer, edger, leaf blower, and hedge trimmer attachments. The hedge trimmer I can't say I was impressed with, but I've never used a hedge trimmer before so I don't really know how much of my expectations were realistic. It just seemed like I had to do quite a number of passes to trim down my hedges. And I was going really slowly. It got the job done, but just took far longer than I thought it would. On a positive note, I know having it on a power handle was a plus because I didn't have to lean over to reach any of my hedges. Had I had a normal hedge trimmer I know I would've been sore afterwards. In terms of negatives I'll have to use it a little more to find out what's a pain and what I get used to. It would be nice if it had a shoulder strap. Doing the trimming, edging, leaf blowing, and hedge trimming all in one day grew a little tiring. The attachment itself seems clunky. I wish it could just snap on and release more easily. But you have to loosen and tighten that handle and push in the little knob to remove and attach the pieces. One nice thing is due to the battery placement it's easy to stand upside down so you can use both hands to remove and add attachments. With the old model I feel like I'd be having to set it down on a flat surface constantly to do that. All-in-all the system seems great. I'm already planning out what attachments I want to get next (sweeper and snow-thrower before the end of the year and cultivator to garden next year). The power is there, I love the 40V platform, and the added reach of using the power handle with various attachments is great for a tall guy like myself. I really hope they add the option to purchase a single power handle though because it would be nice to have multiple power heads without having to get duplicate attachments.
