With a cutting speed ranging from 2800 - 3200 strokes per minute, the RYOBI 40V HP Hedge Trimmer delivers faster cutting speeds and longer run time. The premium HP brushless motor delivers 35% more power than the RYOBI 40V 24” Hedge Trimmer. As part of our WHISPER SERIES family this hedge trimmer is among our quietest range of products. The 26 in. blades provide maximum cutting capacity and added reach. The dual action steel blades offer an aggressive 1.5 in. cutting capacity, all while reducing unwanted vibration. A magnesium gear box provides more durability and lighter weight for those longer jobs. There is a 2-speed switch allowing you to choose between cutting speeds for optimal power and runtime, as well as a rotating handle for precision cutting at any angle. Featuring the innovative HEDGESWEEP, this design helps clear clippings and debris while you trim. The RYOBI 40V HP Hedge Trimmer includes a 40V 2Ah battery and 40V rapid charger and is compatible with RYOBI 40V batteries. This tool is backed by a 5-Year Tool Warranty.
