Questions & Answers

Q:I have a ryobi hedge trimmer. Can I just buy the pole and attach it to the trimmer I have, or do I need to buy the trimmer pole combo pack?

    Q:Others have asked if you can shorten it to make it a hand trimmer. The response is that you can take the intermediate part off. Can you take the pole off ENTIRELY? How short can it get? It's for a tight space & I don't want the trigger behind me.

          The long pole made it easy off my 10" ladder
          [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] It did a great job trimming my tree. the moving head also made it easy.

            Professional results
            [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This trimmer handles the toughest job. I cut through the hedge like a pro.
              Much better than I thought it would be.
              I have a Ryobi 22" hedge trimmer, but my 12' high hedge is now so wide I can't reach across. This 18" isn't as hefty, but with one of the extenders I can easily reach across, saving me a ton of ladder climbing and more. It'll also be perfect for other large shrubs that we just can't reach across or to the top. My only concern was the delivery. It came quickly. However, the delivery driver didn't leave it by our house door ... he left it by our garage door. Waiting to be stolen.

                Didn’t fit together and extension is pointless
                I bought this having loved all my other Ryobi products. But first issue was the poles don’t seem to fit together all the way. I spend 20 minutes trying all ways, reading the instructions, watching YouTube videos trying to figure how to get them together all the way. No luck. However, with the screw connectors I was able to make connection enough to raise the product up. It is way to heavy even without the extension. So disappointed. Hard pass. Do not buy.

                  Impossible trigger pressure!
                  Many have stated the machine is hard to use,(esp trigger pessure/weight). I'm a big, dude. I'm a mechanical engineer and an auto mechanic with big strong hands. The force needed to hold the trigger is a deal breaker! I can handle the weight, but I can only hold the trigger down for several minutes at a time before my fingers get sore. Ryobi, Please give us more than your standard "canned" response! You should fix this with a longer lever. Easy Fix,see pic! (My fix: JB weld aluminum extension)

                  Hello, Deant - We are sorry that you're not pleased with the design of the trigger! But we have brought your feedback to the attention of our product development team. And if you'd like to share more, then please feel free to email us at Reviews@RYOBItools.com. Lastly, per the manual's safety instructions, we do not recommend making modifications to the trimmer.

                    Convenient Light Duty Trimmer
                    Suitable for homeowner use to trim new-growth hedge without the need for a ladder, comprising three sections which connect with screw-together couplings (for mechanical and electrical connectivity), this trimmer will be of use for the occasional use typical of a small residence. The mostly pictorial operator’s manual includes some detail for how to sharpen the trimmer blades. In addition to the three major parts of the tool, a battery pack, battery charger and an adjustable sling strap are supplied. The charger may be used as a bench type or mounted on the wall using the provided keyhole openings (spacing shown on the base by molded-in lettering). A four (4) position trimmer head is provided, adjusted by depressing a spring-loaded button. The operation of the button is a little sluggish and, for some reason, a ninety-degree position is not one of the provided detented positions. The nine (9) foot reach will be suitable for most homeowners. The specs indicate a five-eighths-inch maximum diameter cut dimension…which may be a little optimistic. When compared to a handheld cordless (84V) trimmer, the pole trimmer came up short in the power department. Again, for trimming of new growth hedges the pole trimmer will be adequate, but for established growth (for cutting back overgrown bushes) it will be slow going. The provided shoulder strap (once adjusted for your comfort) provides reasonable support when the pole is essentially vertical, but as one lowers the pole from the vertical handling becomes more awkward. The plastic component of the strap anchor at the trigger end of the tool appears to be a potential failure point (and its function is not clear from reading the manual). While the supplied blade guard is more difficult to remove/install than other trimmers the “closed” construction provides a convenient way to capture errant lubrication when preparing the tool for storage after use. The supplied battery charger performs its function quickly, but the flimsy wiring between the “wall wart supply” and the charger base will be a potential failure point. This is a problem with many chargers of this type, not limited to this application. If your hedges are within the nine (9) foot range of extension, and if you keep up with the trimming to those times when there is only new growth, this tool will be usable for most homeowners. Score an extra point if you already have tools using this 18 V battery.

                    What a great hedge trimmer!
                    I have several hedge trimmers, both corded and battery operated. I got this cordless pole hedge trimmer specifically for tall hollies, wisteria, and privet hedges. The holly in these photos was cut down to a nub about 5 years ago. As you can see it is 6-8 ft tall now and needed trimming. The wisteria vine is in the edge of the woods and is too far away to use a corded trimmer. This tool is the answer to both problems. The larger spaces between the blades on this trimmer allow you to cut some of those larger vines and branches that the average trimmer won’t cut. You can either use the full 9 ft length or you can remove the middle section and have a 6 ft pole trimmer. For most cuts I found the shorter length to be enough and also easier to handle. My only problem with this tool is the lock-out switch. It is awkward to press it and pull the trigger at the same time.

                    The RYOBI ONE+ 18-Volt 18 in. Cordless Battery Pole Hedge Trimmer with 2.0 Ah Battery and Charger did an outstanding job of trimming perennial bushes - much better than previous options. I used it to cut a Cranberry Cotoneaster which has either been difficult or tedious to prune in the past. Not a problem with this unit. See the photo. It definitely cuts up to its advertised 5/8" diameter. It is easy to add or subtract the extension pole. The hedge trimmer may be easily positioned to one of four options. I found that it was easier to use without the shoulder strap and I never could get the quick release option which is not explained anywhere in the instructions to work. It is the red thingy near the trigger portion of the strap. Regrettably, the hedge trimmer did not live up to its description of “while its lightweight, compact design makes it comfortable and easy for ANYONE to operate.” There were two reasons why it was not easy for me. The first challenge is that the hedge trimmer component of the tool is not lightweight and being on the end of the pole means that it requires strong arms to support the weight with such an extended center of weight distribution. The higher you want to use the hedge trimmer, as one would infer being a pole hedge trimmer, the more strength that the tool requires when using it. If you add the pole extender, the weight issue is magnified. Of the four trimmer positions, the straight option was the easiest to use for on the other three the center of weight distribution shifted which made it more difficult to control. If the hedge trimmer part could be made lighter weight, it would be a great tool. It is versatile in that the pole extender is optional. The second problem for me was that the trigger on my unit required considerable strength to keep it engaged. A trigger lock would have been very helpful. Since the trigger will likely be behind the user, that makes it more difficult to press. I have other RYOBI outdoor tools and have never had a problem with the trigger. Because of the difficulties noted, I used it for only 30 minutes. In that time it used only 50% of the battery. Both the battery and charger have been improved since my previous units. The battery now has a fuel gauge which is extremely helpful vs. the earlier versions of the 18V battery. See the photo where the new charger and battery are on the left. I would recommend this unit for those who have strong arms, wrists, and large hands. The unit is made in Viet Nam and comes with a 3-year limited warranty.

                    Hello, Barbqluvr - We appreciate you taking the time to write a thoughtful and in-depth review! As for the weight of the trimmer, we do recommend using the should harness for assistance. And the most typical cutting application is to position the unit at an angle of 60° or less, depending on the specific situation. As the angle of the trimmer shaft to ground increases, the difficulty of making the first cut increases. We hope this information helps! And if it doesn't, then please feel free to reach out to us at Reviews@RYOBItools.com. RYOBIOutdoorTools

                    Expandable, adjustable, and cuts with ease.
                    I'll start by sharing some features and specification's of this product then share my personal experience. This kit included the Hedge Trimmer head, intermediate shaft (extension pole), power handle, blade gaurd, shoulder harness, battery, charger, and instruction manual. If you purchase the tool only you will not recieve the Battery and charger. The hedge Trimmer is powered by an 18v motor. The blade is 18 in. long and has a cutting capacity of 5/8 in. It can deliver 3,000 cut's a minute. With the extension Pole connected this unit extends to 9 ft 4in. Without the extension pole it has a length of 6ft. 4 in. The unit weighs 8.25 lbs. You have to slide the lock out switch before you engage the trigger in order to get power to the motor. This is a safety feature to prevent accidental starts. The Hedge Trimmer head has a 4 position pivot. With the push of a button you can change the pivot angle of the Hedge Trimmer head and lock it into 1 of the 4 positions. This Hedge Trimmer made it a lot easier for me to reach the top and back of the hedges. Being able to pivot the head allows you to get that perfect angle on those hard to reach area's. I had a couple tree branches growing down into the hedge's. I was pleasantly surprised when I decided to try and cut them and it cut without hesitation. Some of the branches were about 1/2 in. Thick. This blade cut through them like a hot knife through butter. The included shoulder strap is adjustable and has a soft rubber guard for a comfortable fit. These trimmers cut really well, I just glided over the hedges with one pass and it cut through everything with ease. The extension Pole is very easy to put on and remove. You clip it into place and then screw on the ends to keep it locked in to place. I was worried about my arm's getting tired while holding this up fully extended but if you use the shoulder strap and adjust it properly you can balance the weight. I did the whole side and front of the house without feeling the need to take a break. This tool is powerful and sharp. Between the lockout switch and blade gaurd it offers great safety features. I had this unit up and running within minute's of pulling it out of the box. It gives you the option to use it with or without the extension Pole. If you are only trimming small hedges you can remove the extension Pole. If you are trimming tall or wide hedges then you can add the pole for extra reach. If you are looking for a great pair of Hedge trimmers look no further. This tool is amazing.

                    This trimmer keeps you grounded!
                    I was interested in a battery powered hedge trimmer to replace my corder trimmer. The cord is difficult to keep out of the way of the cutter and wrangle as you move from hedge to hedge. It makes using it a bit unsafe as the cord can become a focus. I was intrigued to find the Ryobi extension trimmer and thought it might help with another problem I have - having to stand on a ladder with the trimmer to get to the top of my holly bush. It’s a very nicely designed unit with a very efficient cutting head. For my purposes, I only used the single extension, which got me high enough to do the job. The strap that comes with the unit is handy for distributing the weight of it. It makes it very usable for lower hedges too and let’s you stand back from your work a bit for eying in good cuts. I was able to easily trim my tall holly bush without having to get out a ladder!
