    Re: Why Not a Cordless Hedger?

    Here's my vote for 24 volt lawn equipment.

      I'll never buy another two-cycle piece of lawn equipment. Hate the pollution and smell. I have a 4 stroke weedwacker and leaf blower. Soooo much cleaner. As an added bonus they run a lot longer on a tank of gas.

        And why not make a cordless a$$crack detector while you're at it.

          Good idea - I'm sure all the plumbers could benefit from it!

            I second all the suggestions here. If Ridgid were to add a trimmer and a blower, I'd get one ASAP.

              I stopped waiting for it and bought the Ryobi 24v trimmer and with a quick modification, it works with both 18v and 24v ridgid batteries.

                  Nearly 2 years since the last post. We now have the blower, I like it a lot. It's not as powerful as the Ryobi 40v I gave to my in-laws after getting the Ridgid but I like the size better. Now...Back to when are we going to see a Ridgid Hedge Trimmer? I am still using my corded Black and Decker but I am tired of cutting the extension cords. I will be forced to buy the Ryobi cordless if Ridgid doesn't at least give us a hint one is coming. Nice forum.

                    Don't hold your breath cause its not likely to happen soon if ever.

                    The Ryobi 40V line is pretty good stuff. May not hold up to all day
                    professional landscaper use but certainly good enough for HO use.

                  I've been told it's not happening by their development team. Although, the red adorned 18v plastic tool brand is getting cordless lawn tools...
