Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome lightweight Hedge Trimmer! My wife bought this Trimmer for me and I love it! It is so much easier and lighter to use than my expensive gas trimmer. So easy to use... No mixing fuels just put on the battery and go! Of course just like any other trimmer, don't forget to properly lube the blades to prolong the life of your trimmer. One fully charged battery allows me to trim all of my front and backyard with plenty of battery to go. I love that it also come with blade guards to protect your blades as well as your fingers , to prevent any accidents from occurring. If you have plants and hedges on your property, this tool isa must for you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great hedge trimmer !!!!! This is a Great trimmer. It is lighter and more powerful than the corded trimmer I am replacing. A great feature is being able to rotate the handle 45 or 90 degrees left or right. It has virtually no vibration. A well designed safety system requiring you to have one hand gripping the front handle and the other pressing the switch. It comes with a battery and charger and protective scabbard and debris deflector. I am able to have most of my trimming done in less time than it used to take me to stretch out my extension cords. Wish I had this sooner !!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I was looking for! I bought this because I have had with good success with 4 other Ryobi tools. The battery pack is unterchanagle so one is always being charged. I would definitely recommend this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very quiet & lightweight ! We bought this unit after our gas powered trimmer needed servicing. With a big delay in parts available we needed a second trimmer. We have 3 other Ryobi products that all work very well. This does not have the power of the gas-powered Shindaiwa but is much quieter , lighter and a good price. It cuts our privet hedge well. And we can conveniently use the batteries interchangeably with all our Ryobi tools.
