HS 45 is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 121.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cuts like butter Starts up on one pull and cuts anything that fits in the blade. It’s light weight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works like a champ Starts right up after choke and the dealership also recommended the spray (a must) keeps it running flawless and clean

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I Unable to give this product straight fives at this time as it only has a few hours of use on it. Very pleased with it so far!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Stopped working after three trims I live in Florida and purchased this trimmer for our 600 feet of ficus shrubs. I’m 5’5” and not very strong. This trimmer was perfect for me - also, no cords. It requires serious maintenance. Power up fine, but no power to the blades. The darn this broke six months ago and I have been able to get it fixed. I even purchased the special fuel. Totally hassle. Now I’m going to back to my dad’s 25 year old ELECTRIC trimmer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT UNIT. I WAS VERY SUPRISED HOW GREAT THIS UNIT CUT AND I HAVE PUSHED IT TO THE LIMIT A FEW TIMES CUTTING THINGS I DIDNT THINK IT COULD. IT CAN BE SOMEWHAT EASY TO FLOOD IF YOU DONT FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS AND TAKE THE CHOKE OFF AFTER THE FIRST SIGN OF A SPUTTER OR FIRE BUT THAT IS HOW ALOT OF SMALL POWER EQUIPMENT WORKS AND IVE NEVER HAD A PROBLEM AS LONG AS I DO WHAT THE MANUAL AND DEALER TOLD ME TO DO. AS FAR AS RELIABILTY IT HAS NEVER FAILED ME. SEEMS MOST PEOPLE LEAVE ETHANOL GAS IN THEIR EQUIPMENT FOR MONTHS OR USE THE OLD GAS SITTING ALL WINTER THEN COMPLAIN WHEN THEIR CARB IS GUNKED UP AND FAULTY RATHER THAN SPEND $10 ON SOME MOTOMIX OR FUEL STABILIZER . MINE STARTS EVERY TIME NO PROBLEM.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An Excellent Purchase Moved to a place that has hedges, bushes, and growth along lake. Bought the HS45 to tackle the yard and that it did. Powerful, ease of operation, did the entire acre that made the cost and quality well worth it. Had difficulty starting at first - but actually then read the directions and missed a couple important steps in operating the choke during the startup phase. Once over that initial hurdle - all wonderful. In storer, I wondered about the weight, but in use - no issues as found even trimming a shoulder height hedge manageable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Starts easy I really like these trimmers. The only thing wrong with mine is every now and then I feel something binding up. Not sure what it is but, it does not stay around long enough for me to pinpoint where the issue is. But other than that it's my second purchase of this product. I got 4 Years of use, with one that I bought at a pawn shop. With buying this one new I'm looking for 6 to 8 years!
