    excellent hedge trimmer
    Best trimmer Ive ever used just remarkable what this battery operated trimmer will cut and uses very little of the battery charge in the process. Its light and easy to handle and maneuver. Along with several other bushes that it trimmed up nicely I have several over grown red burning bushes and it took care of those easily. If I had any complaint it would be all the safety features that makes this trimmer a little awkward to use at times. A little electrical tape took care of my problem for all ... read more but one of what I deem to be the only safety switch that is needed in order to pull the trigger. All in all a very fine trimmer. I recommend the HSA56 highly..

    Great trimmer
    This is the second battery powered Stihl product I have bought and I am very happy. Normally I am all about the gas powered products, but because of convenice I thought I would try the battery powered line. The battery life is great. I trimmer all of my bushes in my yard with the AK10 battery and it still showed fully charged when I was finished.

    Great tool, long-lasting battery, many safety features
    My house is extensively landscaped. My Skil tool can trim nearly all of my bushes on a single battery charge, including nine holly bushes each the size of a padded arm chair. Recharging the battery takes only a few hours. I used to use a corded 110 volt hedge clipper with smaller teeth. It would bounce off the holly bushes. The Skil tool chomps its way through thick branches, and I do not need to worry about cutting through a cord. My Skill hedge trimmer has four safety features, if you ... read more include the battery safety which must be depressed twice to apply power to the cutting edges.

    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.

    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.

    Tough shears with good power
    These shears are awesome. I only have to hedge with my big hedgers twice a year now since I use these for my weekly trimming. Can handle bushes, hedges and about anything else in your yard. Battery life is excellent and I use the clipper attachment for cutting grass in delicate places and topping off certain flowers and plants. It's so easy to use and lightweight my wife loves to use it as well. Another excellent product from Stihl!

    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.

    Well Engineered
    I like all of its features. Cutting a 9 to 12 ft high hedge 40 ft long was simplified. Battery life 4 hours on AP300, completed the job without needing recharge. Some constructive criticism from a fellow mechanical engineer on future engineering updates: - Shears could be 2 inches longer, usually high hedges tend to be wider as well. Mine is 8 ft wide. It defies the purpose of buying a long cutter when you still need to use the ladder to cut the mohak in the middle of hedge after both ... read more sides are done. - Extension shaft rotates side to side when cutting head is locked at 90' angle. Maybe key or slot the shaft for better tool stability. - Shaft locking bolt thread is too agressive. Lower the thread pitch for more precise locking control. As it is leads to: too loose or overtighting. - Bottom surface of tool at battery enclosure could be rubberized/ doubleshot molding to prevent cracking when resting on the ground. I had to rest bottom on the ground every cutter head adjustment.

    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.

    Elegant tool
    I'm a professional landscaper who's been watching the Stihl battery line for some time. I decided to jump in and buy the HLA 85 as my first battery powered tool purchase. So far, I'm very happy with it! It feels space age and elegant. It's incredibly quiet, the variable speed trigger is great, and my battery (AP 180) still has four green bars on the charge meter even after pruning several small hedges. This is not a light weight tool, and is built with high quality materials; the cutting side ... read more is still almost as heavy as a gas powered unit, but without the gas power head, it is much lighter to carry around overall. I'm very much looking forward to getting the other battery tools, as I feel this is the way of the future especially as battery technology matures.

    Maiden Voyage
    Just put to use my new HLA 65 hedge trimmer. Obviously too early to really evaluate dependability. However, I trimmed 10, 8 ft tall pittosporum hedge, which took me about an hour to trim all sides and tops. Filled a large 75 gallon can. The super sharp blades cut fairly thick branches 3/4" to 1" without any problem. I was able to control the trimmer to make perfectly even cuts. The trimmer is well balanced and seems light. I'm going to move the middle handle around to get it into a preferred ... read more position. A torx wrench is included with the machine to loosen the handle.The articulated head was easy to move with a pull down on the unlocking handle and grabbing the black plastic handle on the cutting head to change the head angle. I bought the AL 100 battery and the hours worth of trimming used 1/4 of the battery charge, for me, homeowner, that should be plenty.

    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.

    HLA 65 One Year of Using the Product
    This maybe the best lawn care product I have ever bought. Hedging is a very labor intensive job in my yard. I have tried manual, electric and gas powered. This is the first Stihl Hedger I've bought. The weight is incredibly light. The weight distribution is perfect. The extension length makes jobs at higher or lower heights so simple. The 4 hr battery is perfect too. I'm totally serious when I add, that I was concerned I've have to add lawn service to my home. Not now, because of the HLA ... read more 65. This product isn't cheap, but it is truly first class and so easy to use. Makes an awful job 'almost' fun. It definitely makes this job rewarding.

    Time saver
    For 50 years been using junky hedge trimmers. Broke down and purchased "to me" expensive ones! Omg..Stihl where have you been all my life? Cut down the cutting time for my 39 hedges to one half the time. This is more than amazing...its a miracle. At age 65, being female the weight was not cumbersome at all to use and lift up and down. One very very happy customer. Barb polakoff

    Great for small yards
    I have only used the trimmer twice, but it has met my expectations. After trimming three medium sized bushes, there was no noticeable battery drain as measured by the built-in meter. I really like the light weight - much less strain on my shoulders than with heavier models. I believe that it meets the specs for size of branch it will cut, but it did stall out when I tried to remove one year's growth on a mature laurel. So I will just trim at six month intervals.

    Very Happy with purchase
    I have been buying Stihl products for 25 years and have never been disappointed. My recent purchase of a new set of hedge trimmers did not disappoint. I know when I purchase a product from Stihl I am getting a high quality product. I will be purchasing a pressure washer before the end of the week. Really cannot say enough about my experience with Stihl.
