    Plenty of power
    We have been using the HS 45 trimmer for two seasons and are well pleased with the overall performance. The engine has more than enough power to cut the toughest overgrown shrubs and the blades cut cleanly without tearing the leaves, even on holly bushes. There have been no problems of any kind with the trimmer, it starts every time as long as the starting procedure in the owner's manual is followed. The guys where I bought the trimmer showed us all about starting and using it when we took ... read more delivery and there has never been a problem.

    Well balanced performer.
    I bought my HS 45 because I have hundreds of feet of hedge and many shrubs around my home. I quickly tired of dragging electrical chords and underperforming electric trimmers. I bought this trimmer almost on a whim when I saw it at my local ACA Hardware Store. Having been a customer and fan of Stihl for many years, I had no doubt about the quality and performance expectation. Which brings me to that missing star. The motor se ms a bit finicky when it comes to ambient temperature and hot/cold ... read more starting. I just can’t seem to find the sweet spot for the carburetor adjustments.

    Outstanding tool
    After using an electric hedge trimmer for years, I decided to break-down and purchase a gas unit for around the house. Glad I did and very happy that we purchased the HS 45 because it is a real work-horse for any and all hedge trimming we have around the home. I must admit I was taken aback by its sheer power and ease of use. It is very easy to start and maintain. I absolutely love it and would highly recommend it to anyone who has hedges that need an occasional trim.

    A Real Timesaver!!
    I had a hedge trimmer from one of the big box stores. This trimmer runs circles around my old one. Especially quick on boxwoods, Ligustrums are still a challenge but not nearly as much as with the old trimmer. My arms are sore from holding the trigger on the top bar but that's just me being out of shape.

    Great product, But!!!
    Works great on just about anything you want to trim. It would be nice if it had a trigger lock. I know they assume that you will cut off your finger or something. But if you have 200 feet of box wood to trim it would be nice to have a trigger lock. It is one of the only trimmers that actually does a clean job of cutting box wood. It cut my job time by 2/3's. It can be tiring trying to hold the trimmer in different positions due to the way you have to grip it to to maintain the power on mode. I'm ... read more now on my third unit.

    This is a great product
    I just purchased this product, it is well worth the extra money! From the first shrub to the last it was an easy clean cut. very little effort, quiet operation and lots of power it did not matter what size the branch, if it fits into the blade it cut it with ease. I am a STIHL person now, I will only spend my money on these products, well built and again worth the extra money.

    Great tool for fall perennial garden.
    I bought the HSA 94 R for my wife to cut down perennials in the fall. We used to use a modified string trimmer with a saw blade but it was too dangerous. This works great in cutting tough perennial stems and even fleshy hostas. There is plenty of power which seemed to outlast us and a nice long cutter bar. We used it for about 45 minutes until we had to go in for dinner and there was no indication of any power loss. The handle and grip are very comfortable. The only issue we have is that there ... read more are four safety triggers plus the key that must all be engaged in order to start the trimmer. It takes a little getting used to but we eventually got the hang of it. Our old process involved me cutting the plants down with the modified string trimmer and my wife coming along and picking up the mess I made. Now I grasp the plant and gather it together and she takes the HSA 94 R and cuts the plant at the base. I deposit the plant in the garden trailer. Done! My wife commented that this was one of her all time favorite gifts.

    Monster
    I bought this model to trim an overgrown 20 year old Privet hedge. Cut through 1”+ branches easily. Do not buy this model without the available harness for the battery pack it will literally pull your shorts off! Seriously this model does the trick.

    Reliable & powerful
    I bought the 87R because I moved onto some new property and need to clear brush growing over and through the fences along the property line. I picked the R model because it is described has having extra torque for cutting thicker vegetation. This machine does not disappoint! It starts easily and the controls are very ergonomic--even though I am left-handed and this machine is built for a right-handed person I find it very comfortable to use. It has plenty of power. It easily cuts through ... read more yaupon, blackberry, brambles, and other misc brush up through 1/2" thick with the engine at partial throttle! I'm sure it has the power to cut thicker brush, I just haven't encountered it yet. When trimming along the fenceline I like the fact that I can concentrate on making sure I don't strike the fence, and otherwise just let the machine do its thing. I don't have to worry about bogging it down or taking too heavy of a cut--it just cuts whatever gets in front of it. The anti-vibe system on this machine is also fantastic. It feels very smooth to run with minimal vibration transferred back to the user. That was something I didn't really think about when I bought the unit but I noticed it right away when I first ran it. This trimmer is not cheap, but I learned years ago that professional quality power equipment is worth every penny. Instead of buying homeowner gear over and over again because it is impractical if not impossible to repair, buy pro gear ONCE and save a lot of money in the long run. Not to mention you can enjoy the increase in productivity at the same time.

    What a beast!
    This trimmer is a beast! It ran through my way overgrown shrubs like a hot knife though butter. A three day job with hand trimmers took about an hour and a half with the 87 R, thank you Stihl for creating such an awesome product

    SO FAR SO GREAT
    Just like the rest of my STIHL'S, this extended hedge trimmer is the cats meow. Don't have to go to both sides of the hedge to get the job done right.

    Switching over
    We've been running another brand for quite some time now, but recently had a few issues. Nothing major, and our dealer is always on top of things, but a friend recommended we try STIHL. We run STIHL stick edgers and chainsaws and love them, but that was it. We always seemed to prefer the others. Don't know why. It's just how it was...until now. Was really hoping these were the 4-MIX engine, but they are not. Doesn't matter. I really feel like the designers and engineers listened to the ... read more feedback of the operators, and were thinking about them while working on these. Lightweight, plenty of power, SUPER smooth, and they just seem to work better. We are now in the process of deciding which model backpack blowers and string trimmers will replace our old models from the other brand when it's time. Very pleased with these trimmers. I can tell they're going to be around for a while.

    Well built tool
    At our landscape company we were tired of other brands failing at the pivot point of the blades. We gave Stihl a try and couldn’t be happier. Great quality of engine, blade sharpness, and balance.

    Great Trimmer
    Our house has a lot of bushes around it so I purchased a heavy duty trimmer. I got the Stihl HL 94K a little over a year ago. I couldn't be happier with the performance of this trimmer. It's easy to start and gives me the kind of edge I'm looking for in a trimmer. I own five other Stilh yard tools and this one is just as dependable as all the others. I never go wrong by purchasing Stihl equipment.
