Versatile Lawn and Garden Tools

Lightweight hedge trimmer is among new tools powered by Ryobi One+ System

 Four versatile lawn and garden tools are now included in Ryobi's popular One+ 18-volt tool lineup. The addition of a hedge trimmer, sprayer, pole pruner and blower means consumers can take the same battery they use in their drills and circular saws and insert it into four
products that will help them keep their yards tidy.

Versatile Lawn and GardenTools Weighing in at just 5.2 pounds, the Ryobi One+ hedge trimmer offers gardeners and lawn enthusiasts the power of an electric unit, but without the cumbersome extension cord. The quiet but powerful motor drives an 18-inch blade at up to 1,200 cuts per minute. The dual action blades are able to cut branches with a thickness of up to 3/8 of an inch. Homeowners will find this to be an ideal tool for shaping boxwoods, trimming forsythia and even maintaining small ornamental trees such as Japanese maples.

The Ryobi One+ System allows users to insert the same 18-volt battery into more than 30 different tools and lifestyle products, including the four versatile new lawn and garden tools. The battery works with all current, past and future Ryobi 18-volt tools. All tools can be purchased without batteries and chargers, keeping the price of individual components affordable. As with all Ryobi One+ System tools, the hedge trimmer comes with a 2-year warranty and is available exclusively at The Home Depot; battery and charger are sold separately.
