    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.

    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.

    HS 45 with 24inch blades
    If ever there was a great hedge trimmer, it bleeds orange and grey! This HS 45 has power and fast trimming ability on even on thick branches! I decided to get the 24 inch blades for off property jobs and it was well worth it. Unfortunately, there are some drawbacks: During the beginning of the season, it does take a good amount of pulling to start it up, but I found that the MotoMix helps cut that away. The engine is a little loud, but the Stihl ear protection equipment takes care of that right ... read more away. The fuel tank is very small but refueling is a snap. Finally, the unit does get a little heavy if you haven't used it in awhile. ;) All in all this hedge trimmer is well worth your money and most importantly, your time!

    Solid dependable choice
    Perfect machine for around the home and if you have a yard business that does some spring yard clean up. I might have chosen a longer blade, but this has the same engine size and I didn’t want to under powered. Easy to start and runs smooth. I’ve had Echo trimmers and after a season I have experienced problems, be sure to follow proper storage at seasons end and you should be happy for seasons to come. I bought this from a local business and probably paid $20-30 more than at a national chain ... read more but the service is worth it.

    Great for small occasional jobs
    I've had my HS 46 CE for about 3 months now - used it about 8 times. I've trimmed boxwood, lower braces of white pine, spirea , euonymus hedge, forsythia, yews, azalais, holy and carpet roses. All with comfort and ease - and 1/2 of time of the corded one I gave away. Gas power makes touch up fast and easy ! While the 46 CE tank only holds a small amount of gas - I have never run out of Gas. I always buy the pre-mixed ethanol free fueland would advise others to do the same.

    Excellent Quality Product
    This hedge trimmer is such a time safer. Easily cuts through all of our larger bushes. Easy start and lightweight. What an improvement over my old electric hedge trimmer. Sorry I waited so long to purchase. All pros and no cons on this one.

    Wanted the big rotating head trimmer but for the price I choose this and have made it work
    I have 1 1/2 acres and the bitter sweet, berry, hedges I planted, and my favorite the Wisteria that when not controlled looks like a crazy mythical Greek goddess. I set out over a weekend and put a good haircut to most of these items! Would like a little more reach but I will make it work!

    More than just hedges !
    I bought this tool for cutting along 1000 feet of 20 foot hedges that were gradually over the years taking my property over. That's what I bought it for... ! What I didn't realize is that, the tool is also GREAT for cutting tall weeds, including Johnson Grass ! The worst enemy to our weed trimmers ! Anyone that has put their weed trimmers into tall Johnson Grass KNOWS the outcome is stopping and pulling the grass out of the spinning head that gets clogged with the grass ! So.. Would I ... read more recommend it ? Absolutely !
