40V 18" Pole Hedge Trimmer with 2.0Ah Battery & Charger
40V 18" POLE HEDGE TRIMMER KIT is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 191.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a GREAT idea … LOVE this tool! I recently purchased the Ryobi 40V pole hedge trimmer to trim some honeysuckle bushes that grow on top of a wall that runs along our descending driveway. In the back, the wall is too high to reach the tops of the bushes. Hence this pole trimmer! I LOVE the fact that you can angle the head for trimming the top of the bushes flat while you stand far below. Definitely recommended. This is an independent review … I paid for the pole trimmer myself and am the owner.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome power and duration but awkward to handle Chose the 40v over 18v for extended battery life and continuous power. Wasn't disappointed. Spent an hour trimming 8 months of neglect, disappointment, and over growth. The trimmer was consistent, powerful, and kept going where I threw in the towel to take a break. In that hour I noticed it was awkward to handle. I tried a few different ways to let the shoulder strap carry the weight, which made it challenging to change the angle without taking on and off. All in all I am pleased and looking forward to getting back out there.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Hedge trimmer no more ladder for trimming! The is a Great Hedge trimmer! Gets to the top of Bushes & does great job! Easy assemble & use. Great power, cuts very clean. Gets up were before had to use a Ladder to get the tops of large bushes, now stand on the ground walk around & get it all done from the ground! Highly recommend for anyone who has large bushes & like to keep the trimmed up nice & neat! This tool saves lots of time by just not having to use a ladder! Love it!!!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything I needed this was everything I was looking for. The battery last a pretty long time. Much longer than I will ever need it for. ANd I love that I can swap the battery to my other 40v ryobi tools.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pleasure I had 100 feet of hedges waiting for me to trim them. Already having a 40V push mower and a weed wacker, I decided to give this hedge trimmer a chance, the price for the tool only is super reasonable. Oh, is it a pleasure! It cuts trough branches of various thicknesses like butter. The biggest problem is picking up after yourself having that much fun...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pole saw I bought this 2 months ago, and the product works great, has power like a gas unit and has very good reach to be able to get to high bushes. Ryobi seems to have done a pretty good job with balancing the battery with the various units, including this one.
