My Bosch AHS 45 16 electric hedge trimmer start, is there anything you can suggest?

Hi Dan Walsh, When an electric motor won't start, it could be an open temperature device in the winding of the motor itself. If you have brushes and they are worn, then one or maybe two of the brushes can't stay inside the brush holder. They are spring loaded and if worn out can pop out. Also, if the winding are open, then there is not continuity. This will cause the condition you described. Not the best news, but it might answer your question.
Good Luck!

Need to sharpen Ryobi hedge trimmer. How do you release blades?

A model number would be necessary. Look for a label with a model RYxxxxx.
You can see an illustrated parts listing by going to Click on the parts tab. It will send you to their parts vendor's website. Then type in your model number and you can see the parts breakdown. If your blades are rivited together, just buy a new set of blades. If your blades are bolted together, then it is possible to sharpen them.
I would still recommend to know how much new blades are. In my area, there are only 2 repair shops that sharpen hedgers, and they both charge more than $50 to do this.
Good luck!

Can I get my Ryobi Hedgetrimmer blades sharpened or replaced ? Its only 2 years old and blunt already, it struggles to cut conifer and tears rather than cuts. I am not impressed.

If the blade set is bolted together, then a local repair shop should be able to sharpen them. Look for a shop that works on Echo or Stihl hedgers, as they can be sharpened. If the blade set is riveted together, then it must be replaced as a unit. You did not list the model or item number for your hedger, but try or . Both sites will allow you to type in your model or item number to look up all the available parts.
Good luck!
