There are many great benefits to having hedges around the home – added privacy, lower street noise and better definition of your outdoor space. And with a STIHL hedge trimmer at your side, maintaining those benefits doesn’t have to be a chore. Our trimmers are lightweight, easy to use and designed to make quick work of overgrown shrubs and bushes. To help you identify model features, look for these corresponding symbols: C = Comfort feature, E = Easy2Start™ and K = shorter shaft length.

STIHL hedge trimmers for the home are also designed with comfort in mind, featuring anti-vibration technology and a well-balanced feel. Whether you have a few hedges or a few dozen to maintain, our gasoline-powered trimmers for the home deliver the cutting power you need, leaving behind that uniform, professionally groomed look. They also include all the features you’d expect from a STIHL-quality tool, including double-sided reciprocating blades, heavy-duty gearboxes and integrated cutter guards. Overgrown shrubs? Not at your house.

    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.

    Plenty of power
    We have been using the HS 45 trimmer for two seasons and are well pleased with the overall performance. The engine has more than enough power to cut the toughest overgrown shrubs and the blades cut cleanly without tearing the leaves, even on holly bushes. There have been no problems of any kind with the trimmer, it starts every time as long as the starting procedure in the owner's manual is followed. The guys where I bought the trimmer showed us all about starting and using it when we took ... read more delivery and there has never been a problem.

    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.

    Stihl SOLID
    The one thing i can still count on is a brand new Stihl product is going to run as good or better than the old dependable one i am replacing. Thanks Still for being predictable!

    Easy to start and feeds line easily.
    Trimmer feeds line better than any trimmer that I have ever owned. It starts every time after a couple pulls.

    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.

    Outstanding trimmer as advertised.
    This trimmer has so much more power than my old electric trimmer. Lightweight, easy to start and well balanced. Has plenty of power to easily cut through larger branches. I got it home from the store and immediately put it to work, and work it did! Works great on hedges and smaller tree branches. Performs with the expected power and reliability of a Stihl product. This is my fourth Stihl purchase and I've yet to be disappointed. You can't go wrong with this trimmer.

    For the weekend warrior in all of us
    Quality, power and value for the price paid you cannot go wrong. Like the rest of the STIHL line of products My HS 46 C makes the job so much easier and safer. I've tried other brands ( Japanese) and electric models and done nothing more than waist my time and energy. Now I understand why the professional's use STIHL.
