A powerful and easy trimmer to use

published

I bought my Ryobi cordless hedge trimmer OHT 185 1R in 2017 from Bunnings. It is used intensively and has never let me down. It will cut through branches up to the size of the cutter bar. It is important to oil the cutter bar after every use, using SAE 30-40 engine oil. CRC or RP7 is to light!!. A great investment for the garden. My wife loves to use it on her box hedge.

Purchased in February 2017 at Bunnings Warehouse for $149.00.

Best hedge trimmer

published

I do my own hedges and also others in the family. This is such a great hedge trimmer.
The long blade ensures I can reach across and makes it easier to get a straight cut. It is not too heavy for me to handle. I have owned it a year and use it fortnightly and it is still cutting well. I am unsure of what to do if the blades dull, are they able to be sharpened? A question I didnt think to ask and get answered before I bought it.

Purchased in March 2018.

Excellent

published

Changed from petrol to battery after 15 years as a lot of my trimming is done on a ladder. Much lighter, quieter and easier to use. The twist grip is handy. Feels just as powerful as the petrol. I already had a 2.5amp battery and bought a 2nd one for this trimmer which I have needed due to the amount of hedges I have. The charge lasts a while so you may be happy with one.

Plenty of grunt

published

I was hesitant in buying a battery powered hedge trimmer. I convinced myself that I needed petrol or electric to get through my hedges. But the guy at bunnings suggested I try the ryobi one plus. The weight alone was enough to convince me to go with the ryobi. So much lighter than the petrol and electric. I still wasn’t sure it was going to power through the hedges but it more than handled it and battery life is great.

Delighted

published

I have a big garden with much trimming required. When I bought the place I started with manual trimming, impossible task. I then tried a corded power trimmer, found this dangerous and inconvenient. Next step was motorised hedge trimmer - this worked well but was much too heavy for me. In desperation I bought this product - at last I found a solution, it cuts great, is lightweight and easy to adjust. I bought a 2.5 ah battery for it and find this lasts multiple uses, never have run out of juice when starting with a full battery.

Massive step up from last model

published

I was given one of these by Bunnings as a warranty replacement for the last model which the handle broke on.

This thing is excellent. I go looking for things to hedge now. It has a protector on the end on the cutter that protects it when you get low along paths etc, it has a handle that rotates to different angles which makes it a lot easier to use and the switches to make it go (two points of contact) do not require herculean strength to keep it going.

Great product development and a 2yr warranty which has just restarted for me.

I expect there are people around who know more than you but I wouldn't worry about that too much it could harm your tiny brain. If you don't know the answer don't try to provide one.

If the stems fit between the cutters it should do the job well.

how to replace cutting blades

ask ryobi.,sometimes cheaper to buy a new one!

Michael P.
Michael P.

You don't say why you want to replace them? but if you did you would have to dismantle the whole body to split it apart to get to the whole cutter bar, and unscrew the bolts that hold the bar together. I have done this on a corded Bosh cutter, the principle is the same,just takes a little time and patience. All the best,
