    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.

    Light but powerful
    I have owned this product 10+ years and it has been a steady performer. Use it very often on shrub, it cuts thin and thick with ease. Never any running or cranking problems. I have replaced the blades 3 times but over 10 years is not bad the use one gets out of the blades. Have owned cheaper models and the gear box always tears up, this one never a problem.

    LIGHT AND EASY
    I purchased a trimmer from Lowe's and thought it would be a good one, cheaper is not always the best way to purchase tools, it was a piece of worthless built imitation of Quality, returned it and Purchased this great tool, HS 45, as a home owner it does the job with ease. I have nothing but Stihl in my garden tool shed, Tiller, Pole Saw, Hedge Trimmer, Edge Trimmer with the Large Brush Cutter Blade, Chain Saw.

    Almost a light saber
    I own lots of Stihl tools, finally bought a hedge trimmer. It definitely outperforms my old one. the blade is fantastic, cut through 1/2 boxwood limbs without a problem. One swipe and trimming is done. No debris caught in between blades, clean cuts. Light, powerful, the anti vibe is a welcome change. Never any fuel issues with 91 octane and platinum mix.

    Great buy for the money and what a time saver!
    I used to trim bushes by hand for many years. I was a little apprehensive about spending the money on this. Once I did purchase, I wondered what took me so long. This cut my trim time by 75%. Best purchase I have made in a long time. This trimmer meets all of my expectations and more. The dealer was very helpful in helping me make my purchase. They were very knowledgeable and friendly at that.

    First gas trimmer - makes a quick job of trimming shrubs.
    My corded electric hedge trimmer died, and my neighbor has used Stihl for years and recommended this gas powered one. It is light weight,well-balanced, surprisingly quiet, doesn't get stuck or stall on branches, and is much easier and quicker to use. No more cutting through power cords. I love it and wish I would have bought one years ago. I particularly liked buying the Stihl 6-pack of oil and getting my warranty doubled to 4 years. With this positive experience, I bought the vacuum/blower with ... read more attached collection bag, and next spring I'll be buying the Stihl weedwacker.
