Ryobi’s New Hedge Trimmers: Lighter and More Compact, Without Compromising on Power or Capacity!

Home gardeners know hedge trimming can be a tiring task, particularly when it comes to cutting tall, overgrown hedges; that’s why Ryobi® made it their mission to create their lightest and most compact 550W and 600W hedge trimmers to date.

Garden enthusiasts can easily shape and sculpt their garden with Ryobi’s new light and compact hedge trimmers. With an improved design that combines a lower profile motor housing and advanced electronics, Ryobi® has created units that are an impressive 12% lighter and 13% smaller than the previous models. Even with this large reduction in size and weight, both hedge trimmers still contain high torque motors and intelligent gear drive systems, that provide the power to slice through branches up to 26mm [RHT5655RS] and 28mm [RHT6160RS] thick. Blades of 55cm and 60cm will reach even the furthest edges of overgrown hedges.

With improved the blade geometry, both models feature precision diamond ground blades which provide a high level of cut quality across both rough and fine cuts, and ensure the blades are durable and hard-wearing throughout use. The models also feature a front end saw function, providing another resource for easily cutting larger branches.

RHT5155RS – 550W | RHT6160RS – 600W

With class leading ergonomics, both models feature a 5-position, adjustable soft grip rear handle and an extended rear trigger, to ensure the hedge trimmers are comfortable and easy to use in any cutting position. The new design also includes an improved front loop handle, which provides an effortless grip and allows users to naturally compress the front trigger. This innovative design removes the fatigue that often occurs when users must constantly squeeze the trigger to complete their hedge trimming task. A cable hook on the rear handles also helps to effectively manage the placement of the cable when cutting.

The innovative design doesn’t stop there! the new hedge trimmers are packed full of added value. All blades have tip protectors, to protect the blade during use along walls and hard surfaces, and the RHT6160RS is supplied with an HedgeSweep™ attachment that helps to clear clippings during use and makes clean up a breeze.

Furthermore, all models are supplied with a blade sheath, for safe storage, and have wall mount capability for added convenience. Shaping bushes, shrubs and hedges has never been easier with Ryobi’s new hedge trimmers.
