    Great Value
    This trimmer is incredible. I am a small landscape contractor and purchased this a year ago. The run time is extremely long, so long I keep waiting for it to quit running but it just keeps running and running. Seems like this trimmer will go through any size branch, of course, it wouldn't so use care. My only negative is it's a little heavy, but all battery powered trimmers are. I would highly recommend this trimmer.

    Changed my mind about battery lawn equipment
    I am amazed by the power and the run time of this trimmer. I have always bought gas equipment but my wife wanted a battery string trimmer, and while I was there I bought the HSA 56, too. My justification was the shared battery with my wife's new trimmer. I figured I could swap batteries out and keep going. The fact is that I get tired before the first battery gives out! Perhaps when the weather cools off I'll be able to find out how long a battery actually lasts. I regularly cut branches about ... read more 5/8" and the trimmer never hiccups. Now if only they would design a trimmer that picked up all the cuttings…

    Lightweight and very powerful
    This is an excellent product. I had owned an gas powered Stihl hedge trimmer for at least 20 years that was a great product. The only problem was with only using a couple of times a year, it was hard to keep running. Now all I have to do is stick another battery in it and keep going. Stihl also has a great deal on the batteries now so I just purchased a second one to always have a spare. The trimmer is more than powerful enough for homeowners to use. A battery powered blower is probably going ... read more to be my next purchase. Stihl is definitely the leader is these products!

    Been down under and back with my Stihl
    We have a steep slope (AKA cliff) behind our house that gets heavy brush overgrowth that has to be taken back regularly. I repel down and go for it. There is no other tool to use. My Stihl HSA 66 makes quick work of the entire job, including those pesky alder saplings, up to 3/4", no problem. My wife calls it "down under and back". Oh and there's our 20 foot tall Leylandii Cypress hedge. No problem. Straight as an arrow, flat as a board. The hedge, I mean.

    This product is highly engineered and has the Stihl quality I expected.
    I needed a hedge trimmer that was light, powerful, and of exceptional quality. Since I own several STIHL products and have owned STIHL products for many years I am very confident that the durability and quality are in every one of their products that carry the name. I wanted a battery operated trimmer but did not want the increased weight in the trimmer. I purchased the battery belt and it works just wonderful. The standard battery will trim a large amount of shrubbery without recharging.

    HSA 66
    Great trimmer! I bought it to use around a pool, so I would not have an extension cord around the water. I purchased the AP300 battery, and AL300 charger as well. We used it for around 3 hours and still had 75% of the battery life remaining.

    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.

    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.

    My new favorite tool
    I purchased this at the NWFGS in February. Since then, I have used it to cut down groundcover bamboo and Japanese blood grass and to mow some patches of other groundcover plants that had been damaged by an extreme cold spell. In each case, the tool cut HOURS off the time that it would have taken me to finish the jobs with the hand tools that I (or my gardener) normally would have used. In each case, I used the tool for several hours without needing to recharge it, but I would like to have a back ... read more up battery. My only complaint is that I can't find a replacement battery [yet?]. I've already recommended it to my gardening friends (and my gardener). Love, love, love this tool.

    Great Product
    The HSA-25 garden shears made easy work of 25+ shrubs in an afternoon, all on one battery. Much lighter and easier to work with than a gas powered hedge trimmer, specifically for boxwoods and smaller shrubs. Great product and well worth the investment.

    First In Illinois to get one!!
    I saw this little guy over in the UK and Germany back in early 2017. It was a must-have! Wasn't heard of or available in the USA. So I contacted my dealer and had one shipped over. Now it seems everyone has one which is a good sign. Love this handy tool. Use it almost every day. So light and does the job! The plastic cover that it comes with was replaced very quickly with an actual Stihl orange trimmer cover. Battery charges super fast and internal is metal gears, not that plastic stuff competitors use.

    Suprisingly great
    I had the chance to use this unit along with the pole pruner and two of the 300 batteries. The hedge trimmer had great power and the telescoping pole was extremely useful. I did hedges all day on just one and half batteries which is inconceivable. When doing hedges I tend to take small breaks throughout the day, so it's great having that quick start/stop capability and even better to toss the ear protection on hot days. I have been through multiple 100 series stihl hedge trimmers and I still ... read more love them, but I will say I accomplished more with this unit. I'm a hard critic so here are my two dislikes: 1- the head should have more inbetween articulate settings as I needed them multiple times and 2 - the head is heavy compared to the battery side, which is extremely fatiguing to your forearm/bicep closest to the trimmer head. Overall great piece of equipment to have if you do a lot of big hedges.

    Another well thought out product
    I've owned this tool for just a few weeks & so far I'm very impressed. I already have the battery powered saw, two ap180 batteries & the al100 charger. Being more than happy with the saw (although it has its limitations), I took the plunge & purchased the telescopic trimmer. The run time is a lot longer than the saw, easily an hour. Using this tool combined with a little tidying up in between, shifting stepladders etc. This tool + two batteries & the slow charger is easily on a par with my other ... read more cutters. It has a one year guarantee (two for the home user), & the quality you expect from stihl. Only downer is not being able to use it in heavy rain. Les noise, no petrol fumes & spillages & the customer pays to charge the battery. It just makes sense. Very pleased!

    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.

    Not just for tall plants
    I'm very pleased with the power and run time (AP180 battery). Unless you're a pro, you probably don't need the heavier battery. I was surprised that at least half of my use is at ground level. This trimmer reaches under fences, cuts brush that would choke a residential mower or string trimmer, keeps me "arms length" from potential snakes, and doesn't sling sap from poison ivy or poison sumac. It was able to "chew" through one inch saplings. It also did a great job on our larger shrubbery, ... read more although the tallest shrub still required a ladder due to its 8 foot circumference. I looked at the longer HLA 85, but this model is much easier to handle and is definitely the right choice for 95% of my tasks. I hoped to also buy a handheld hedge trimmer, but all of the ones weighing less than 11 pounds use the AK battery type (not interchangeable with AP). I'm very disappointed in that limitation imposed by Stihl. On a related note, comparing battery performance between tool series should be easier. Some are described in amp hours, some in watt hours, and some not at all. It makes me think Stihl may be hiding something. Bottom line: This is a capable replacement for gasoline systems. Highly recommended.

    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.

    Nice hedge trimmer
    This is my sixth Stihl implement, and it's a beauty. Quality piece of machinery, works perfectly like you'd expect it to. Now, i picked this trimmer because the specs indicated it weighs 9.4 lbs with the AP100 battery, a full 2 lbs. lighter than with the AP300. i bought the AP100 because I only need 30-40 minutes of run time (worst case), and the lighter total weight appealed to me, but therein lies the only negative. It's not a huge issue, but it's worth mentioning. With the AP100, most of the ... read more weight seems like it's on the motor/blade end, so the trimmer's a bit unwieldy. I have not used the included shoulder strap yet, so I'll give that a try next time. My advice though, is to buy the AP300 battery for it whether you need the additional run time or not. The balance will be much better. I was looking forward to trying it with both batteries in the store, but this trimmer had to be special ordered so I bought it sight unseen and bought the AP100 based on specs alone.
