It was about a year and a half ago that Ryobi announced a new 40V HP brushless hedge trimmer and at first glance I thought the new one announced this week was the one from December 2020. However it is a newer model even though it looks very similar and has mostly the same stats such as being an HP brushless 26″ hedge trimmer model with the hedge sweep feature. There are a couple of key differences with this newer model, that it is part of Ryobi’s Whisper series of outdoor power equipment which is their quietest models and it has a large 1.5″ cut capacity! The previous model was not a whisper series model and had a 1″ cut capacity. Other than that, they look identical from a quick glance. The HEDGESWEEP feature is a large tab on top of the cutters that is said to clear clippings while you trim. Ryobi says that this model has dual action blades for reduced vibration and you can find a 2 speed switch to choose between max performance or better runtime. It uses a magnesium gearbox which is a strong yet light metal to keep the tool lightweight and durable. The handle can rotate to make awkward cutting angles easier. It is also said to have anti-jamming technology.

It is expect to launch July 2022 for $319 as a kit with single 2ah 40V battery and rapid charger.
