18 in. 40V Cordless Pole Hedge Trimmer (Tool-Only)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good reach and power Just what I needed for my tall hedges and crape myrtles. Plenty of power and reach. Somewhat strenuous to use for an extended time, but well worth resting between additional trimming.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great I have many tall bushes in my yard which would be impossible to trim without this tool! I was very happy with the performance but be aware there is some weight to the tool when fully extended. Great tool!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy assemble Just purchased and used it to trim back bushes surrounding our home foundation, prior to painting 200+ ft. of foundation walls

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent power Powerful and quiet. Long battery life using 4.0 battery. I wish the fixed pole that attaches to the battery box was removable for small bushes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for my yard with multiple size bushes/hedges I have hedges 10’ tall that drop down to 3’ and are 3’ wide and this trimmer handles them with ease. I have oval bushes that are 7-8’ tall, I can reach the top without getting the ladder. I had battery from another Ryobi tool so now I have 2 batteries to switch out. Batteries are great and no cords to unravel. My yard is 300’ deep so not needed an extension cord to reach is a big plus.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Performance from 40V Tool I use this tool to trim my wisteria. It does a good job. It is somewhat heavy. It does come with a strap to help distribute the weight but I haven't needed to use it. Battery life is very good.
