Product Description

Amazon.com

Like the other Trimmer Plus attachments Ryobi offers, this one turns your trimmer into yet another tool. Snap on the tree pruner, with or without the extension boom, and make short work of tree trimming and shaping without setting foot on a ladder. Aggressive blades work at 2,000 strokes per minute, chomping through branches up to 4 inches in diameter. Because of its length, it does affect the balance of the tool in hand, but with a little getting used to, it works like a charm.--Kris Jensen-Van Heste

From the Manufacturer

The add-on tree pruner will prune branches up to 4 inches in diameter and operates with 2000 strokes per minute. Extension boom allows for extended reach for hard to cut branches. Heat-treated powdered metal gearing for dependability. The Click-Link shaft allows the user to add-on or take-off the attachment in seconds. Only Ryobi offers the TrimmerPlus System that turns a grass trimmer into a complete lawn and garden system. Can be used with any Ryobi TrimmerPlus unit - electric, 2-cycle or 4-cycle. Two-year warranty.

I have one acre with a lot of trees. This prunner is light weight, sharp, and makes fast work of the job. Four inch branches, or small trees are no problem for this trimmer. I've owned mine for four years, and replaced the blade once. Reccommend the shoulder strap for more comfort.

I have recently steped into the Ryobi Trimmer Plus Landscapingsystem. I recieved the unit as a gift from my wife. I never thoughtworking in the yard(I have a big yard with tons of trees!) would ever be fun. I purchased this this attachment and all my work became fun and easy.
Don't buy an inferior unit that does not have tree pruning capibility. Get a Ryobi and make your landscaping, especialy tree trimming, tasks easy.
Plus, Ryobi units start in a snap!

I have several live oaks in my yard that need a lot of pruning. I can cut branches about 12 feet high from a step ladder using a chain saw or lopping shears. With this tool I can get at limbs up to 20 feet high.
But I was a little disappointed in the cutting performance. I did not expect it to work as well as a chain saw, but I expected it to work better than it does with the aggressive teeth on the blade. It is difficult to get good leverage on the blade while holding the trimmer with both hands so close to the back end of the trimmer. It does good on limbs up to 1" in diameter, but it takes several minutes to cut through a limb that is 3" in diameter, and that is an eternity while holding the trimmer at an awkward angle over your head.

This tree/bush pruner is really great. I have a half acre with a wide variety of trees. Apple and Pear trees are a snap with this baby. Over grown rose of sharon is no problem. Oak does take a little longer to get through but hey, I'm not standing on a ladder sawing the old fasioned way and breaking a blade. I fully recommend this item. I have the blower/vac, hedge trimmer and snow thrower attachments for my Ryobi and this pruner really takes the place of a small chain saw. It comes with 2 blades and the strap. Get it if you have bushes and trees and ryobi/john deere/craftsman.

I used this for a couple of days trimming shrubs and pine trees. It worked great! It's like a sawzall on a stick. I was cutting up to about three inches in diameter limbs. Then one day I was taking out some massive bushes and on the 5th one it stopped working. You could move the blade back and forth with your hand. I went to [...] to look up the nearest repair center (as instructed in the manual). Everyone on their list said they wouldn't fix it and they don't know why they are in the DB. Then I tried the 800 number service locator. Again... everyone close was either outta business or wouldn't fix it. Finally a customer service rep tracked down a place about 25 miles from me (an autobody shop???). I'm going there today to drop it off. I'll update the post with any relevant info. HTH.

Verified Purchase
I just used the tree trimmer add-on for the first time. A few times the screw that holds the blade loosened. Don't know why. It is important to make sure that the screw that holds the blade is quite tight and that the motor is on the high setting. Also, this works best with hard, rigid stems. With rigid stems and branches it works like a charm - but be patient. It works very poorly with thin or flexible stems like forsythia.

A very handy tool to have in your shed to make pruning very easy. This is the third trimmer that I have purchased over the past several years. The problem is that in the last two that I have owned the set- pin holding the blade intacked sheers off or just vibrates off. So far I have been unable to purchase one (set-pin) and finding something to replace it makes the cutter useless. Please advise.

Just recieved it and had a chance to give it try on a variety of trees and limb sizes. Cuts through most 1-2 inch limbs in about 10-30 seconds. The bigger 3-4 inch limbs on oak and pecan trees can take up to a couple minutes to saw through, but this would be no longer than using a hand saw.
May want to keep the allen wrench with you because the blade does loosen with extented use with vibration.
