    AWESOME!!!
    I have several stihl hedge trimmers. this one is my favorite so far. This one is great because I can run the protective tip cover on the much and other places without worrying about damage. As a landscaper who specializes in trimming & shaping, this cuts cleanly & smoothly, plus its relatively* light (I'm a small woman*) and easy for me to start. After experiencing Stihl, other tools seem mediocre.

    Top-notch hedge trimmer
    Best Hedge trimmer on the market, I've used other brands in the past but none compare to the Stihl HS 56 C-E. Easy to start, powerful motor and the cutting edge breezes through my Laurel hedges - I would recommend this product to anyone who needs a top-notch versatile hedge trimmer!!!

    Best I've ever used!
    I had read some spotty reviews about the engine, but took a chance when I realized the machine with the best reviews had the same motor. I runs great! Easy, reliable start, cold or hot, it cuts like nothing I have ever owned! I have overgrown hedges and oleanders . The thicker branches (1"+) take a little longer, but it goes thru cleanly. The only thing I didn't appreciate was when cutting high, the exhaust blows right in my face, but its not Stihl's fault I let the plants grow so high.

    Awesome hedge trimmers
    Used them for the 2nd weekend in a row. What a difference from box store junk! Easy to start not to heavy well balanced. Worth every penny. The power is awesome. Recently added these to my Stihl collection even though I will only use these 2 or 3 times a year I feel they are very well built and will last a long time. Thank you Stihl for another awesome product

    It's still running great
    At a little over a year later, I have had zero reliability problems with my HS 82 T, so the reliability is there. I've found that the fuel filter isn't quite weighted enough, so when I'm pointing the trimmer downward, it will start to stall unless I keep it in motion enough. That's my only gripe, and an easy fix of getting a fuel pickup/filter with more weight from the dealer. There have been no troubles at all with the swivel handle, and I'm using that in multiple orientations every time I use ... read more the trimmer. After nearly 2 seasons of use, I highly recommend this trimmer.`

    professional hedge trimmers
    Amazing product moved up from the hs 45 the hs 82t has more power no vibration and the exhaust is channeled to the front of the trimmer away from the operator. Rotating rear handle is great for long hedges. Overall the best trimmer on the market today well thought out features perfect for the professional.

    Awesome hedge trimmer!
    I bought this a couple weeks ago to cut back the overgrowing blackberries on my long driveway. This thing is awesome! It made quick work of a big job and did it without a single issue.

    You get what you pay for!!
    I used these for the first time on a large property that was extremely overgrown. Trimmed up touchy boxwoods cleanly. Cut right through large woody branches on burning bushes with ease, grasses, evergreens, everything. It ran much, much longer on a single tank of fuel than the 46 I've used professionally the last 6 years. I love this unit and can't wait to use it again.

    My best Money Maker
    If I need to make some quick Money I drive down the road looking for the biggest mess of bushes or low branched trees or volunteer trees on fence lines. I pull this out got to there door and strike a deal. I can make $150 in an hour just cutting their mess. Takes no time at all. Cuts through Parasitic Vines on trees that grow all over them in as fast as you can brandish this unit. trims and cuts Crape myrtles New growths Fast and to the ground. I even misuse this and cut through ground brush and ... read more Mondo Grass/ Monky Grass and do clear cutting. It has even gone through copper Sprinkler lines so be careful there. Cuts through larger branches in the way to if held on them for a few seconds. Had some 18 foot monster hedges and this went through them in record time. 4 hours before with other trimmers 30 minutes with this. I love knocking Down Over Grown Rose Bushes with it. Cut them up then slice and dice them into small pieces to shove into a bag. I am a handy man and I put this tool to its MAXX Abilities at multiple sites a week. Its NEVER leaving my tool truck. I can make my Rent in a week using this. Just a wagon This tool and a box of trash bags and a rake. Can make $900 a week walking down the street.

    Great product I bought way late
    Do not hesitate when considering the purchase of an extended reach shear. What a difference I have found between a short reach shear and the HL100K 135*. Less fatigue. Better fitting for all applications. Stores nicely. Wendy and Edgar both complained about hard starting. I also find it difficult to start the machine. Usually I pull the cord once without doing anything to the primer or choke, listen for the sputter, then set the choke. If it is above 60 degrees Fahrenheit, I'll set the choke ... read more and pull once, pull off the choke and hold the trigger fully open and usually get a good start after a pull or two. If you need help, see the dealer. They can be tricky to the inexperienced. I've had the shear for a good five years and the blade is sharp after trimming hundreds of shrubs. Easily cuts 3/4" woody stems. Easy to keep an even cut over long stretches of hedge. I typically use only straight. Rarely use the adjustable angle but for storage. You'll be happy to stand straight up instead of bending over. Don't use at half throttle for best results. Also, as another post stated, clean with the Stihl aerosol shear cleaner and resin remover after use. Keep your gearbox greased with Stihl Multilube. And lastly, use only non-ethanol fuel. If you're using it as a homeowner (periodically), I would recommend emptying the fuel tank and running the fuel out until it dies. Then the fuel lines have air in them, not fuel, therefore will prevent failure. Don't leave it unlocked either. People with no money really want one of these that someone else paid for. Take what you will from my opinion and you will enjoy a great tool for a long time! Manufactured in USA

    Excellent power, nice reach, really easy to use. Some might complain about the weight, but it's not a problem. I also love how the blades fold in for easy storage. I'm also only using pre mixed 50:1 fuel, since it has no ethanol.
