    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!!!

    Pricey but worth it!!!
    I am a homeowner, but I do a lot of hedge trimming. The HS 56 C-E is an amazing tool that handles big jobs with ease, is great for detail work, and thanks to the guard at the end of the blade it is great close to the ground as well. The ergonomics, leight weight, and overall balanced feel made this unit the easy choice over the Husqvarna and Echo units I looked at.

    light powerful hedgetrimmer
    I bought this to replace a echo unit I was having problems with and am very satisfied with it.it is lighter and better balanced then any other gas hedge trimmer I have ever used and has plenty of power.I did have to take mine back to the dealer because of a carb issue but that was quickly resolved and has run perfect ever since.

    very good unit
    very good machine with a lot of power. The 4-mix engine is very powerfull. I have done a few hedges with it and they all look good and the branches are cut and not torn.

    All the features needed to trim a variety of hedges
    Works very well but the longer shaft makes it a little top heavy. If you have a lot to trim then periodic rest periods are advised. Otherwise, can not be a better trimmer on the market. The adjustable blade makes work easy.

    Like the adjustable cutting head
    This product is solid and works well. Reading other reviews I agree it is a bit on the heavy side however I have found using a shoulder harness (from Stihl) it can be adjusted for much more ease of use while taking the full weight off your hands and arms while using the unit. It cuts well and in my case as an older man greatly helps the strain of reaching with arms fully extended as needed on my HS45 model. Also several times trimming over the years I had the unfortunate problem of wasps nests ... read more and getting stung up close to the hedge when their disturbed, with this unit your much farther away and greatly reduce the chance of that happening. Smooth operation and less vibration also made this model better.

    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.

    Should have bought this years ago
    I love this trimmer. I haven't had this more than two days, so my dependability rating is purely a guess, based on my other, older Stihl equipment (FS 85 trimmer and 036 Pro chainsaw). I don't make money at this job, but I do have to cut about 200' total of hedges with parts over 6’ tall, twice a week in the springtime, then tapering to every 2 weeks as the summer heat picks up and the growth slows. After 18 years learning the Zen of keeping these straight and sharp, I'll call myself an ... read more expert. I bought this HS 82 T to supplement my FS 85 which has an adjustable angle trimmer on the end of a 5’ rod. That FS 85 has been great for the last 15 years, but I've grown tired of swinging the relatively short trimmer on the end of the long and heavy stick. I would've tried the 40" 87 T if it came in double-sided, but my hedge type only does well when I swing the cut in both directions to keep the branches only pointing outward not vertical, and I didn't want to walk twice up and down their lengths. This also looked better than the 87 T to flip upside down and use above my head. For my job, this trimmer is fantastic. It has a lightweight aluminum stiffener along the length of the bar that's not too tall to get in the way. Mine didn't come with the nifty semi-circle protector at the tip as in the picture, but my FS 85 didn't have one either, and I haven't had a problem from the occasional ding onto the sidewalk. The exhaust being ported toward away from me and toward the cutter is more than welcome. It’s a much quieter running machine than the FS85, with none of its “ding ding ding” of the centrifugal clutch. The weight on this felt much lighter than the similar trimmer from another brand that I tried. They’re nearly the same dry weight on paper, but for me it's not about total weight, it's about the balance. I need to swing the trimmer a zillion times, and for that this trimmer is a dream, beating the other hands down. One thing that surprised me is that I also really like the rotating trigger handle. At first I thought it too gimmicky, but it really is easier to use the trimmer when the handle is oriented right. I especially like putting it sideways, then the trimmer feels more like it’s in chainsaw mode. Very comfy. I hope I don’t wear out the mechanism, as the plastic-on-plastic swivel handle is the one thing I’m a little worried about for long-term durability. The vibration isolation works very well. I didn’t come in after work with my fingers still vibrating from gripping the trimmer for hours, as always happens with using my FS 85. I’d even tried special gloves to reduce the nerve damage, but their thick foam made the work harder. With the HS 82 I got no such problem, and was only wearing regular leather work gloves. With the weighted fuel filter, the trimmer works great in any orientation -- sideways, pointed up or down, and upside down while over my head. I had no fuel feed problems, and speaking of fuel, it seems to be fairly fuel efficient too, which is nice. In summary, the specs of this trimmer met the specs for my task, and the rest of the features have made me very happy to use this fantastic tool.

    Plenty of Power!
    I recently purchased my first gas powered hedge trimmer and is was well worth it! Cut my trimming time in about half because I was not worried about cutting my power cord in half. Plenty of power to over come my 15 year shrubs. Well worth it!

    Amazing!!
    This is a good product being for the price and power it puts out. I also own the HL 100, and both leave quality work behind. It's perfect for the smaller bushes and shrubs and everything in between.

    I bought this four years ago and it is Great!
    Although I was reluctant to replace my third homelite with a Stihl because I was paying for quality I am over-the-top impressed. This is so much better for all trimming than a standard size trimmer. It screams and I love using it. It's like the car that you love to drive, you just can't get enough of this machine. Do not hesitate, you will love it and no longer need to replace cheap equipment because this is built to last.

    Hedge trimmer
    This trimmer does everything that I needed. It is being used to clean the overhanging vine maple and brambles along a rural road. Cut cleanly and fast. The manual that shows the method of use with an swing motion was very helpful. The swivel handle is a great feature.

    Good for tropic vegitation
    Living on a Caribbean island with a garden that has Bougainville, Faya Lobi, Jasmine, Wayaca, Oliander and many other plants, it has been proven to be a perfect tool to maintain the garden within a reasonable time. The Caribbean climate may be nice for tourists (it really is) but working in the garden under the sun can be something of a challenge. The machine works very efficient, fast and easy. Although after a couple of hours it gets heavy to handle but on the other hand if you look what ... read more others are doing by hand or other machines, I really prefer the HS 81R. The gearbox is sturdy and the anti-vibration works as it should, with all that said this machine is a perfect solution to trim the overgrown and the strong plants. Absolute reliable if handled with care and maintained as instructed. Most to all maintenance can be done by yourself if you have some technical experience, if not the manual will give good guidance. Otherwise the dealer will be more then happy to help you.

    Excellent
    The property I work on has close to 1500 lineal feet of box woods. They always need to be trimmed up before parties and such. These trimmers are light, powerful, and have no vibration. Swivel handle is a big plus for doing the sides. I can actually run these all day without feeling tired at the end of the day.
