What is the Ryobi ONE+ OHT1845 hedge trimmer?

This cordless hedge trimmer has 45cm long blades and is powered by an 18V 2Ah lithium-ion battery. Part of the Ryobi ONE+ system, there are six other Ah batteries available, plus a range of chargers to choose from and all are compatible and interchangeable with any of the gardening and DIY tools in the system.

What is the Ryobi ONE+ OHT1845 hedge trimmer like to use?

This is the latest model and it is smaller and more compact and lighter than previous Ryobi hedge trimmers. It’s quiet and easy to use, giving an impressive performance for its size. It has a wider tooth spacing of 18mm on the blade and it trims a range of materials well. The battery has a power indicator on it, but it’s tricky to view, making it hard to know how much power you have in the battery before it runs out. The blade guard is stout and sturdy and feels built to last.

Who is the Ryobi ONE+ OHT1845 hedge trimmer most useful for?

This light, versatile hedge trimmer is ideal for shaping and sculpting hedges and shrubs, but is also useful for less able gardeners who need a light, compact tool.

Is the Ryobi ONE+ OHT1845 hedge trimmer good value for money?

The hedge trimmer costs £84.99, plus it’s another £103.95 for the battery and charger. However, these can be used with all the other tools in the Ryobi ONE+ System, saving you money in the future if you expand your tool kit. It’s light, powerful and easy to use and comes with a three-year warranty. We think it’s very good value for money.
