Would be good if I could rely on it,
This review is from: Ryobi 400W Electric Articulating Pole Hedge Trimmer (DIY & Tools)
Despite being a bit heavy it can do a good job on 10 ft high conifers far quicker and more safely than a standard hedge trimmer and ladders. That is if it kept working. After using it just twice, it decided to keep cutting out. Returned it to the retailer who happily changed for another brand new one. That was nov 2012. It has been used 3 times since then and now the new is doing exactly the same, cutting out, leaving me with a half finished hedge. Retailer says they will exchange it again - do I want another? I want one I can rely on and can only see this happening all over again. Those who have given good reviews might also soon encounter these problems.
