    works like a charm
    I just bought this 10/16/2015 to clean up some shrubs and bushes around my home. Wanted a Stihl brand hedge trimmer because I have a Stihl brand trimmer and chainsaw. This thing was a workhorse. It was no trouble cranking or cutting through my bushes and shrubs. Im glad i made the purchase and would recommend to anyone wanting one for homeowner use.

    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.

    Great Hedge Trimmer
    I purchased this hedge trimmer to ease my task of trimming all the bushes on my 3 acre yard. What would have taken me several hours was cut down (pun intended) to just over an hour. These trimmers are easy to start, have plenty of power, and are easy to handle. If you have used any of the other Stihl products, this one will be a breeze to operate and maintain.

    This product is lightweight, easy to start, fast and trims shrubs with ease.
    This is my first gas hedge trimmer previously I used an electric. Wow I can't believe how much faster and easier the HS 46 C does the job. It cuts larger shrubs with ease and it took me about 1/3 the time to do all my shrubs than before. I always had to worry about the extension cord and I can't tell you how many of those had been cut. I would recommend this to any homeowner. If I would have known how fast, lightweight and better this unit is than my electric I would have bought one a long time ... read more ago. Don't procrastinate go out and get one you won't be disappointed!

    Trims Though Things that Electric Can't
    I was fed up using an electric powered hedge trimmer and always cutting extension cords so I decided to go buy a gas powered hedge trimmer. I went down to my local Stihl dealer and the guy there recommended that I get the HS-46CE, adding also that the pros love them and that they sell like hot-cakes. I took up his offer. When I got home and started it up, I could not believe how much it has. It could easily handle branches up to 1 inch thick and was also extremely light. I had no issues ... read more maneuvering this hedge trimmer at all and finished trimming my hedges in a quarter of the time it would take me using my electric one. The best thing about this hedge trimmer is that well, NO CORDS!.

    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.

    Time Saver
    I have had my Stihl hedge trimmer for 3 seasons now and it still works like new. Every other week I trim my hedge (see pic) which is about 300 feet long and about 8 foot high at it's tallest point. I sharpen it at the beginning of each season and do regular maintenance like air and fuel filter and keep the spark arrestor clean and it always starts like it did when it was new. It's such a time saver too.

    Carburetor didn't make it 1 year
    Carburetor need to be replaced 10 months after purchase. The good news is that it was under warranty. The bad news is that it needed service at the height of the commercial repair season (spring). It took 3 weeks to get it repaired due to volume of business this time of year. Only thing that I don't like about the machine is the small fuel tank. Everything else is fine. It should be for the price.
