I understand that this is a hedge clipper and can lip branches as thick as 3/8" S here is the 69 dollar question, ill this clipper clip brush that has the same thickness ? Or better yet, has anybody used this hedge lipper to cut down brush ?
Asked by: NandaK
You should have no problem with brush. I've used it on everything from thick grass & weeds to hedge branches and small maples that were growing inside the hedges. The only con to using it on brush is that it's straight; There's no good way to hold it parallel to the ground for a sweeping cut. This item is very well made and doesn't have that "cheap pair of scissors won't cut paper" problem.

Does this product match up with the TB57SS?

Asked by: Mike
It appears that the model number you gave is for the Troy-bilt motor that accepts accessories and that should take this unit just like my Troy-bilt.

Expand-It 17-1/2 in. Universal Hedge Trimmer Attachment is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 434.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from 1 Star Review Rating provided by a verified purchaser

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does fine this is my first experience with attachment tools....and both are Ryobi....Hedge trimmer and edger.....both work as advertised and work as expected.....this trimmer is to replace an electric trimmer (100' cord) that can't make it the distance of some bushes....this trimmer gets caught on some little larger branches, but that may be expected.....unclog them and continue on.....definitely no problem with the power or the trimmer by this Ryobi product........I hardly ever give 5 stars to any product because I'm not sure what a perfect score might entail....so my 4 stars is darn good!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Product Caution The hedge trimmer attachment adds considerable length to the power head/shaft unit making the unit considerably more awkward to use than a conventional corded trimmer. That said, the machine is powerful and accurate and you do not need to worry about the cord getting in your way. The combined weight requires significant upper body strength to hold the cutter horizontal for example when flattening the top of a hedge. Cutting the sides of a hedge are easier with a long, smooth up and down motion. The extra length of the tool makes it easier to keep your lines straight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Why did I wait so long. I know battery technology has pretty good now, but this application has been around for a while. My only complaint is why I didn't do yhis years ago. No gas, no cords!!! The unit is a little heavy like other reviews mentioned, however it is not unmanageable. The only other negative is the slow build up to full speed and lack of power from dead stop. If there is a small branch in the knives when the trigger is first pulled it will most likely stall. Other than that this thing rocks. I have wisteria all along our fence plus several hedges and I can do it all on the 2.6mah battery easy. The attachment is easy to swap out too.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I have had this trimmer for just over a year and this weekend it broke... leaking grease, will no... I have had this trimmer for just over a year and this weekend it broke... leaking grease, will not move... it appears that the gears broke inside the plastic housing. It has a 3-year warranty... that is why I bought it. However, now that I go to use the warranty I see I need to ship it to a factory center ... the closest is in California and I live in Hawaii. The cost for shipping both ways will be the price of a new replacement unit. This sucks! Why stand behind a unit if it obviously is going to cost more than the price of the unit to get the warranty repair. Unless you are within a close distance to an authorized repair facility, think about getting another brand that you can get warrantied easier.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Leave Your Electric Hedge Trimmer Behind I have a Black & Decker corded hedge trimmer that works OK but it's really annoying to drag an extension cord all over the yard. The Ryobi EXAND-IT Hedge Trimmer is a real problem solver as you're free to roam wherever you need to. The only limitation is very dense foliage that slows the whole tool to a stall when using a gas-powered head like mine. In that case, you need to make more shallow passes on the hedge or bush. Otherwise, this tool makes for quick and neat trimming of all your hedges, shrubs, bushes or topiaries. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best tool in the garage The EXPAND-IT Hedge Trimmer has made my life easier! I used to take care of the hedges with a pair of hand shears that took a lot of time and energy only allowing me to trim the hedges in phases. I would trim a couple in the front yard one weekend then the others the next weekend and repeat the same process in the backyard the following weekends. Now with the EXPAND-IT Hedge Trimmer I can take care of all of the hedges and complete both the front yard and backyard in not just one day but in less than an hour. It has made my yard not only look great but saved so much time I can now spend more with my family. Having the right tools for the right job is so very important!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Adaptability of the Ryobi system The Ryobi power handle concept using the same power source on several different attachments for various applications is genius. I recently purchased the hedge trimmer attachment because my trees and hedges are large and tall, and I needed to extend my reach, even from a 6' ladder. By utilizing the extension pole from the tree saw attachment, I was able to reach the top of 10' evergreens. I also have the weed wacker, brush cutter, and cultivator attachments. I like this product combination. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
