The Ryobi Hedge Trimmer Review The ryobi hedge trimmer is a good product from a week respected company. Ryobi is known for delivering durably, reliable, and dependable products. The hedge trimmers are no exception to this. People who have purchased these trimmers have been quite happy with them and used them for many years with excellent results. There are different models available to fit different needs as well. When you begin shopping for a new hedge trimmer it is important to know exactly what you are planning to use it for. What is the depth of the hedges you will be trimming? How far are they from your house? How long are they? These are all important questions to answer before buying. This will help you to purchase the trimmers that work best for your needs. Ryobi offers both a cordless trimmer and a gas trimmer. There are difference between these two options that you should be aware of before buying. They vary in power source and in weight. It is important to consider this when making your choice. Both are reliable and will get the job done, but one may better fits your hedge trimming needs than the other. The cordless trimmer runs on a rechargeable eighteen volt lithium ion battery. This battery has a fairly long life and can do a considerable amount of trimming before needing to be recharged. People like the batter option because they do not have to worry about buying gas and storing it for the trimmer. Batteries are viewed as more convenient to many people. The battery model also tends to be a little more light weight than the gas version. The fuel that must be placed into the trimmer makes it a bit heavier than the battery trimmer. For people who need a light weight trimmer this is a good option, but it is not the lightest weight on the market. There are lighter options, but they have their own drawbacks. If you want the flexibility of a cordless trimmer this makes a great light weight option. The gas model also has many great selling points that buys have been attracted to. This model has a 22cc two cycle gas engine and is powered by gasoline. The blade is twenty two inches and it delivers professional results. The Easy Start system makes getting the trimmer going a breeze. This is one of many ease of use options that this trimmer offers. It may be a little heavier than other models, but it is still easy to carry and to use for most people. A lot of people who do a lot of trimming prefer the gas model because it never needs to be recharged. Recharging a battery takes time and refilling the gas tank

takes far less time. For people who do a lot of trimming and cannot wait for a battery to recharge to get back to work this is the preferred model. It has a reciprocating blade that makes trimming a breeze as well. People love the professional results that this model provides. If you are in the market for a new hedge trimmer you may want to take a look at the ryobi hedge trimmer line. They have many different models available to fit a variety of trimming needs. These models have all received good reviews from buyers and are known for quality and durability.

George J February 3, 2012 at 1:05 pm (Edit) Need recommendations for a cordless hedge trimmer?


Would appreciate recent info on a cordless hedge trimmer in the $100.00 range. I understand the B&D has changed their battery within the past 2 Yrs. Also other makes and personal experience. Thanks

Anonymous February 16, 2012 at 2:30 pm (Edit) The question I have is how many hedges are on your property? B&D makes a good cordless trimmer for your basic homeowners’ needs. But if it were up to me I would buy a Stihl gas trimmer, best quality and reliability

Mr Average Joe February 7, 2012 at 2:01 am (Edit) What is the best cordless electric trimmer and weed eater? I want something lighter than a gasoline powered trimmer and a weed eater. What are my best choices for each?

WORX GT WG151.1 18-Volt Cordless Electric Lithium-Ion String Trimmer/Edger WIth One Battery I like the flexibliity of the unit: the handle articulates, the aluminum shaft telescopes to adjust for user height, and the cutter head angle adjusts to insure comfortable hortizontal trimming. Definitely, a well-designed unit from an ergonometric perspective. In the trimmer mode, the cutter guide/guard provides close, precise trimming without accidentally damaging plants or flowers, something hard to achieve with my old corded Toro. A few quick snaps and adjustments and the unit converts into a sidewalk or driveway edger. A caveat here: the unit trims nicely as an edger, but it’s not definitely not powered to trench cut with the trimmer cord. When I tried to get the machine to cut into the dirt next to the sidewalk, it balked and the trimmer string would not advance properly. If used just to edge the grass with a clean vertical cut, the unit performed nicely. Power-wise, the GT’s lithium ion battery provides sufficient power to handle my 1/3 acre routine trimming on one full charge. The user manual indicated a 30 minute recharge cycle for a full recharge, but my recharges have been about 40-45 minutes–still a very quick recharge time compared to other battery-powered models. I pushed the unit by tackling some overgrown grass and weeds in the adjacent vacant lot and it cut them nicely, but they obviously strained the unit to the limits of its power capacity. It can handle that type of work, but if you have lots of it, you’re better off with another machine with more power.

Anonymous February 8, 2012 at 10:47 am (Edit) What is the best gas/cordless trimmer/edger? I’m looking for a gas or battery powered trimmer than converts to an edger for 200 bucks or less. I’ve looked at lots of battery powered ones online at good prices but the

reviews usually say that it’s not very powerful or battery doesn’t last long enough. The problem with gas is none of the ones i have found convert of an edger. I definitely don’t want electric with cord. So whats a reliable trimmer than converts to an edger, gas or cordless battery? Thanks

bobsimpson1947 February 16, 2012 at 4:25 am (Edit) Two goats. There is one exception: If you are trimming grass around a church, you should only use holy goats.


lennyuzbek February 18, 2012 at 6:59 pm (Edit) Black and decker 18-volt cordless hedge trimmer?


Can the Black and decker 18-volt cordless hedge trimmer be converted to corded? Because battery are dying really fast, and maybe there’s some device that i can plug into battery space, but it’s will be connected to my power outlet, something line an adaptor. Thank you

dale February 26, 2012 at 6:47 am (Edit) i don’t think so an electric weed eater isn’t very expensive

SexyArmyWife February 19, 2012 at 7:06 am (Edit) I am looking to buy a new cordless trimmer/weedwacker, can you give me your opinions?


i recently decided that I want a cordless trimmer/weed wacker for outdoor trimming, as I am tired of messing with the gas trimmer. I bought a TASK FORCE trimmer, but i had to rewind the line and it did not ‘feed’ out the line as stated it would . It didn’t have much power to get even tall grass around my fence cut. I would like your opinion on ANY cordless trimmer/weedwackers you have. I am looking at the black and decker one, but need the adjusting handle, and telescoping body, as me and my hubby are different heights, and the edging isn’t a factor since i have a edger already. I need it to be CORDLESS.

Thank you
Reply February 26, 2012 at 1:36 pm (Edit) I use the TORO cordless, it is battery powered. You have to re-charge it after every use, but, if you have only minor trimming to cut, it works fine. For heavy duty jobs, it

won’t work so good. Most Trimmers won’t ‘feed out’ the line as advertised, you have to help them out with your hand. The height is not adjustable, but unless your hubby is 6’13″, and you are 4’10″, it should work fine. Regards-Bob.

sasha1641 February 19, 2012 at 1:25 pm (Edit) Has anyone used the Worx cordless trimmer? I am in the market for a grass trimmer. Either electric or cordless. I have mostly edging and a few heavily weeded areas. I like the idea of a cordless model, but am unsure about the worthiness of the Worx. Anyone use one and how was it’s performance?

BB February 25, 2012 at 12:59 am (Edit) Cordless is just going to end up having a battery issue. Buy an electric.


Anonymous February 24, 2012 at 11:14 am (Edit) Is the Worx GT cordless trimmer any good?


I was thinking about getting the Worx GT WG151.5 cordless trimmer. It seems pretty neat with the edger feature and all. Does anyone have any experience with it? Does it live up to the hype?
