Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great cordless pole hedger I have purchased 2 non Ryobi cordless pole hedgers in the past. Neither one of them compare with the Ryobi's durability and power.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Simple to use and works pretty well Bought this for some stubborn bamboo. Works mostly really well. Also works on cane grass really well. But won't cut everything depending on girth. Don't need oil which is nice. Pretty top heavy but you can counter balance with a heavier battery. Wish the package with the battery was available in Hawaii cause I could have had another battery for much cheaper. Had to spend $189 and the battery package would have been only like $30 more expensive (totally worth the deal) but it wasn't available. It'll give you a sore arm cause it is pretty heavy but still much easier than anything by hand. Still 100% recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cuts through heavy stuff very well Bought this 2 weeks ago and even in heavy shrubs it just cuts very well - However, very disappointed that Ryobi doesn't offer a string trimmer / metal blade edger attachment head only that I can swap the hedge trimmer head with. I don't need the handle & battery I already have 2 of them - Are you making a 40v trimmer/metal blade edger???

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Exceeded expectations I bought this to trim a tall hedge and it did the job very well. Its a little heavy, but you get used to it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Chops tough underbrush Working well clearing out underbrush on several acres to clear for wild flowers and grasses. Cuts berry canes and sumac up to an inch. Make sure to keep collar tight. You might get carried away with the solid cutting so the collar can loosen when you keep working through a whole battery cycle.
