1.0 out of 5 stars Weak product 27 Sep 2012
Verified Purchase
Delivery excellent, trimmer of poor quality. Have several petrol driven Ryobi products one being a hedge trimmer, a sturdy piece of kit with quality cutter blades, unfortunately this electrical item is not in the same league in that it seized after 15mins on its first outing with immediate signs of wear on the cutter bars.My advise steer clear.
Amazon & suppliers have been first rate with refund given immediately upon return.

2.0 out of 5 stars Does Not Do What it Says On The Tin! 16 Oct 2012
Verified Purchase
I have had a bad experience with this Ryobi hedge trimmer because it did not perform as claimed in the manufacturer's technical data. The first example I received jammed and gave up after a couple of hours of (non-continuous) use. It was very promptly collected and replaced by Amazon and their partner's, Platinum Garden Centre (exemplary customer service, thank you). Unfortunately the second example was equally poor. Ryobi claim that it will cut foliage up to 17mm in diameter. My experience was that it baulked or jammed on 8 mm cuts on green wood, and I verified that under performance with digital calipers. The concept and design appear excellent; it is a pity that the trimming head performs so badly.
I have now received a refund and will look to a different manufacturer for a replacement.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ryobi RPT 4045 long reach Hedge cutter 25 Oct 2012
Verified Purchase
The Ryobi was deliverd on time and has performed very, I would say better than expected because one or two reveiws were a bit negative,Changing cutting angles is quick and precise, it cuts through all the normal thick branches you find in a hedge, it took about 10 minutes to get the hang of it and I found I could cut all the long reach parts easily, I would add that for close up work its best to use shears, the point of this is long reach cutting.

3.0 out of 5 stars Some difficulties in use. 20 Sep 2013

I find it rather heavy and unwieldy after about 30 minutes use. You have to be careful not to trap your fingers when adjusting the angle of the cutting head.

3.0 out of 5 stars downside 16 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase
the machine works well, but the connection to the power source is a bad letdown /
having an adapter to convert from 2 to 3 pin socket on such a short lead is totally unsuitable ,
it means having to have the plugin next to you as you work , thereby adding weight to an already heave machine, to say nothing of the dangers that it brings with it, also such a short lead is silly on this machine.

I feel that it was not designed for the market it is sold in and this should be stated in the adverts.
to use mine safely ,I have had to have it rewired with a longer cable , so in the end it became more expensive than better machines, pay attention to how its advertised pls .

4.0 out of 5 stars Ryobi Long reach Hedge Cutter 24 Aug 2013
By Keith
Verified Purchase
You will need very strong arms to hold this tool other than upright. Trying to hold it horizontal is possible but not when extended. I wanted it to cut a steep bank(50 degrees) but I think this will be difficult. The product is perfect - no complaints there - but it is heavier than I expected. Lesson - read the details of weight!

Absolutely brilliant. Needed it for a very large hedge - next door neighbour's great wall of China, and it cut the very thick hedge extremely well.

The cutter is very heavy. For the average person the item would be very difficult to operate on more than a limited basis. This should be made clear in the description.
