    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.

    Great for trail trimming or home yard
    I bought this two years ago when I bought a Stihl 250 chainsaw and use both for trail work in southeastern Michigan. This trimmer is light enough to put on a rack on the back of my mountain bike to take into the area I'm working in. It cuts everything in it's path up to 3/4 inch saplings. I use it like a scythe (I wear safety chaps) and it will run for over an hour on a tank of gas. I also use it to trim the shrubs at home and I can easily do them all in an hour when it used to take me two hours ... read more with an electric trimmer. I follow my dealer's advice and only use ethanol-free high-octane gas. No problems starting or running, ever. I use a lanolin spray cleaner from my dealer after each use. Haven't needed to sharpen it after 40+ hours of use.

    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.

    You get what you pay for
    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.

    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.

    powerful yet quiet
    This trimmer is just what our business needed for those taller and/or wider hedges. We have had this for over a year now and it is still as sharp as the day we bought it even worth all the use it gets. It was much quieter than we expected which was a great surprise. This tool has yet to be in the shop for anything. Highly recommended.

    great trimmer
    Have this trimmer for about two years and it's a junk yard dog. Great machine. Occasionally changed fuel filter after lots of use.

    Great piece of equipment!
    I buy only Stihl equipment for landscape maintenance. I am a homeowner and landlord with 5 acres and 4 houses to maintain. Dependability and quality are second to none, and my local service facility does whatever is needed at a reasonable cost.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
