Ryobi 18V HP Hedge Trimmer Lighter and More Powerful Than Ever Before
The Ryobi 18V HP Hedge Trimmer (P2680VNM) is an ideal choice for anyone trying to keep the hedges around the house in good shape without arm fatigue. It provides the type of power you’d expect from something bigger than an 18V motor, but with the lighter weight that makes an 18V tool a compelling option. Between the power, weight, and feature set of this hedge trimmer, you can get your shrubs tightened up in no time.
Ryobi HP power tools all feature a brushless motor which not only increases battery efficiency but also ramps up the power. The motor on this hedge trimmer can move the 22″ dual-action blades through branches up to 3/4″ thick. The blades feature anti-jamming technology to keep you up and running even after mowing through thicker hedges. All of this from a hedge trimmer that only weighs 5.7 lbs.
Battery-powered hedge trimmers perform notoriously-close to their gas counterparts. That makes them a great tool for anyone looking to manage a yard without the hassle of fuel and winterization. This Ryobi model looks to fit a need for smaller yards with more manageable shrubs and hedges as opposed to larger properties or those needing to trim thicker-branches.
The Ryobi P2680VNM also features the unique HedgeSweep design that we’ve seen on other hedge trimmers in the lineup. This extended vertical wall of plastic operates similarly to the way a cattle mover on the front of train works. As you trim your hedges, the HedgeSweep feature simply pushes the clippings in front of the blade until they sweep over the edge of your newly trimmed hedge. It makes for a cleaner finish that you won’t have to pick as many trimmings—or cows—out of.
You have a wrap-around handle that gives you easier control over your cutting angles as well. When the job is finished, a wall hook lets you hang up the trimmer for better storage organization.
You can pick up the Ryobi 18V HP Hedge Trimmer either as a kit or as a bare tool. Kitted with a 2.0Ah battery and charger, Home Depot sells it for $149. As a bare tool, you can pick it up for $119. In either case, it comes with Ryobi’s 3-year warranty.
