    Cuts quickly and powerful for thick shrubs
    I used my HS 66 for 3 hours cutting back freeze damaged oleanders and sage with no problems. The AP 300 battery lasted the whole time and still had a near full charge. light enough to handle and powerful enough to do the job. Great tool.

    Good power, battery fully charged in less than 10 minutes
    Good power, cut through a tough hedge with 3/4 in branches in some spots and did not bog down. The blade is extremely sharp, probably sharper than all the knives in my drawer. It was so sharp it scared my wife and she said she wasn't going to use it. After she saw me cut through the hedge she couldn't wait and asked me to leave one for her.

    More than enough power to get the job done
    Went with the AP300 battery just to make sure I had plenty of power. Still shows a 3/4 charge with about 2 hours of use. Wondering if I should have gone with the smaller battery for the weight savings. This thing does have some weight to it so you get a good upper body workout when using it. By looking at it and using it, it becomes obvious that this is a well made and serious tool. So great to be able to do tree shrub trimming without getting on a ladder. Took me about 45 minutes to do what ... read more used to take me half of a day. I would recommend.

    Good reach for large hedges.
    This trimmer can reach out a good distance. While I still have to use a ladder I can reach all the way across from my property. Low battery consumption, seems to last a good while.

    The best hedge trimmer I came across.
    In an effort to get my hedges under control, I went through about 6 or 7 hedge trimmers looking for one that would take care of the job. I used various expensive gas hedge trimmers, while these were powerful, they couldn't extend far enough. Then I switched to various electric hedge trimmers, while these extended further than the gas hedge trimmers, they had no where near the cutting power, so I was forced to leave somethings behind because the trimmer couldn't take care of it. But the HLA ... read more 85, wow. It's a little on the heavy side, but I think that's just because I'm super out of shape. This thing not only extends out to get me almost 9 feet of length (with how I can hold it), but it is also super powerful, it cuts through those branches that even the gas trimmers has a hard time with. It's a little on the spendy side considering you have to buy the battery and charger separately, but it is well worth it.

    Ideal for shearing heather, lavender & grasses
    I have been searching long and hard for a low vibration cordless trimmer to spare my arthritic hands and wrists for the hundreds of heather, lavender and ornamental grasses I have to shear annually. This is ideal. I sheared plants that used to take me a couple of days in a couple of hours. And feel no after effects in my hands or wrists. It's lightness and small size makes it easy to control so I ended up with much better looking results than a regular hedge trimmer. It is definitely not for ... read more thicker woody stems. It cuts clean too. I didn't try the grass shears. The neat little carrying case is nice to although I couldn't figure out how to secure the hand tool so it doesn't slide out. I can't remember how it was secured in the first place.

    The best for Do-It-Yourself'ers
    This is my first hedge trimmer, so I do not have a lot of experience with them. I went to the Stihl dealership because my research indicated battery-operated hedge trimmers have come a long way as far as operational charge and how long the charge lasts, with Stihl being rated very highly. I'm glad I did. My HSA-56 lasts 40 minutes which is plenty of time for both my front and back yard hedges. It cuts them like butter, so its got the power I need without the hassle of the power cord dragging ... read more around. The bottom of the trimmer is flat and so the hedges do not get caught on it. This trimmer is about medium weight with the battery inside, so cutting will wear on your forearms a bit after a while. Lastly, the battery meter is right in front and shows you how much charge is left. For example, if the indicator appears half way diminished on the meter than you have approximately 20 minutes left. The safety mechanisms on it are going to ensure you won't lose a finger, so while you may gripe about them always understand they're there for your benefit.

    Love the lower weight and no fumes!
    Love my new toy! We have a couple of acres of hedges and the HSA 56 was waiting to happen here. It cuts well and importantly, shapes well. Safety features are great but I have to remind myself to keep the blade away from my wrists when I do shaping of the hedges. Battery life could be longer but it forces me to take a break periodically. Would love to have Stihl add an additional comment in the user's manual; run it down to empty before recharging or recharge before empty. The comment about ... read more being able to cut hedges three football fields long is a bit of a stretch.

    Light weight and powerful
    This hedge trimmer is light weight which makes it easy to maneuver but it has enough power to get the job done efficiently. Great tool for the male or female gardener!

    Priceless Tool
    I am extremely impressed and happy with the HLA 65. It does an amazing job cutting blackberry bushes down, ivy, light brush, etc. Super quiet and light. Great quality. I cut light brush for 30 minutes, and the battery was about half. Sold on Lithium Ion. Worth the price. Make sure to get the Stihl Hedge Trimmer blade lubricant/cleaner aerosol can, too.

    Well built, balanced, good power
    I have 300 feet of laurel hedge along with other tall shrubs that require trimming 1 - 2 times per year. The battery powered trimmer avoids the hassle of gas powered tools that don't tolerate inactivity for 3-4 months. The 3 hours +/- run time with the AP 300 lithium battery is more than enough time for my sessions with the trimmer (that's actually 4+ hours of working time since the trimmer is not constantly running when I step up and down off the ladder and remove clippings from the work area). ... read more The trimmer cuts well. I have used it for 5 weekends now. Wish I had this tool years ago.

    This is an awesome hedge trimmer!
    This hedge trimmer exceeds my expectations. I am an old gas powered equipment guy, so battery powered devices have to prove themselves. This machine has power equal to any gas trimmer and cuts one inch forsythia branches like butter. Cutting power is unfazed by angle or running time. Did over 200 feet of forsythia and battery still has 75% left on status lights. No more mixing gas and oil. No carburetor issues from storage or fuel quality. No noise for me or neighbors. Bought bigger battery and ... read more rapid charger so I can buy other tools someday. Worked at a Sthil dealer back in the 70's so I know quality is superior and service will be there if needed. These units can be sharpened, unlike the cheap cutters that jam and can't be serviced. The price may shock you, but these tools are worth every penny. I can stay off ladders now, so safety factor is improved doing my own work at 62 years of age. My neighbor bought a gas model and now has buyer's remorse after seeing what this battery powered unit can do.
