Short trimmer part broke to easily
NO parts show online, Call store no help. Beware breaks easy and teeth jams to easy. I use regular hand scissors to make these bush. The Ryobi did great but regular scissors last years this didn't Ryobi for $99.00 is just not wroth it.

Great for small jobs - light weight
I bought this product to do my 7-ft tall evergreen trees. My trees are in a spiral design and the branches are thin and soft. It worked beautifully. I do not recommend it for heavy duty jobs it isn’t made for thick branches. I do not have grass so i dont know how it works on grass. Putting the blade on and off is very easy. It took me 10 min to do one tree!
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This Shrubber is exactly what I needed. Previously I had to trim my shrubs by hand and because I wanted to create designs in my shrubs, I had to use a Lopper to get into those tight spots. This year my Arthritis got much worse and what had worked before would no longer work for me. I thought about getting a more standard Hedge Trimmer; but their blades are just too long to do what I want to do. And then I saw your shrubber on line and it was love at first sight. I also was favorably impressed by the 18Volt battery. I've had previous experiences with tools using smaller batteries that would consistently run out of power in the middle of a job and it was something I was going to avoid at all cost. This tool performs exactly as I'd anticipated, flawlessly. When the battery did quit, I had finished all that I possibly could for the day. Perfect!
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have only used this trimmer once but it fits my purposes perfectly. Recent cervical spine surgery has limited my range of motion and I now have weight limitations. My heavier hedge trimmer was too heavy so I opted for this lightweight model. I can handle it easily and love the maneuverability as I trim. I didn’t need a heavy duty tool so this one is perfect for my use. Hope this is helpful
i just bought these about 2 weeks or so ago mainly to cut the grass around my inground pool deck. first time using i was thrilled. they cut very nicely and quickly with no mess. however, this is the third time using them and the entire bottom blade assembly including pin falls out about every three minutes of rapid use this must be a design flaw. not up to par with all my other Ryobi yard tools. Ryobi??

Not made of high quality so you get what you paid for
bought this cordless trimmer for our shrubs around the house so my wife doesn't have to use the old school shears. the trimmer itself is pretty easy to use, you just plug in the battery and pull the trigger basically. oh there's a safety switch. swapping the shears is pretty straight forward as well. there's a screw on lock at the bottom that you unscrew, swap the shears, and lock the screw back in tight. while my wife likes it because it made trimming our shrubs and hedges easier, it is not made of high quality materials. the 4" shearing blades form rough edges easily. while trimming, we hit a twig that was a little thicker than normal and the blades got stuck and stopped. upon closer inspection, i saw that the blade formed deep burrs stopping the shearing action therefore the whole thing was stuck. i have to unscrew the whole bottom plate to get it out just to release the shears and later spent close to an hour sanding down the burrs to get a smooth cutting action so the blades can cut and overlap smoothly. what a pain! use it but don't expect this to be problem free, chances are you will encounter some issues due to low quality built.

The two different cutting blades makes this tool more usable for different applications. I use the hedge trimmer blade for my hedge and it works good.

To be completely fair, I've only used the Shrub Trimmer attachment since I got this 3 months ago. I rather doubt that the grass trimmer will be any less effective though.
The battery life is quite good, and I can trim 1,000 sq. ft. of Living Wall on a single charge easily.
It's lightweight and is very good for working with one hand. Depending on how "woody" of a material you are using it on, it cuts well up to about a pencil thickness. So for TRIMMING, it is a very good value to use. Using on anything heavier than a pencil thickness on a regular basis I would consider tool abuse, and tougher equipment should be used in my opinion.
