HL 94 (145°) is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 15.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kombi Motor and extension HL94 (145*) Purchased the Kombi motor and the 145* attachment for trimming my hedges and am totally satisfied. The weight is something I needed to get used to. The products are first rate and I would highly recommend to all. I had tried other brand units but as I observed that the staff of most landscaping firms in Bermuda use Stihl I made a few inquiries about the units. Everyone I spoke with are sold on Stihl and sing its praises. Therefore, I decided to go with the plethora of recommendations and am elated I did. Worth every dollar spent!!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not the quality I expected from Stihl This is the 2nd time this needs to go into the shop within a year. Right out of the box, the engine never ran smooth and would never reach the max RPM without sputtering. A new carburetor was installed which solved the problem, but I had to fight with the dealer to cover it under warranty. They claimed it was from using gas with ethanol. Out of the box? I don't think so... I use STA-BIL or ethanol free premix in all my gas powered equipment. Yesterday, I heard a loud winding/screaming sound and shut the engine down. When I restarted it, the rope on the pull start would not retract. Hopefully, the dealer will not fight with me again about covering it under the 2 year warranty. Needed to use my old reliable 5 year old hedge trimmer and a ladder to finish cutting my hedges.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from My stihl gas powered hedge trimmer I just bought is Made in China. If I had seen the "Made in China" listed on the hedge trimmer itself, I would not have bought it. Never again!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Its good but... I bought this then later regretted buying it because I recently discovered you can buy the Stihl Kombi KM131R which has more power and accessories, which would allow you to put the hedge trimmer head on an extension pole giving the user greater reach and power than this model... More power and more reach is always a good thing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good trimmer overall I bought this trimmer to trim some very tall bushes around my property (12-13 ft).It has very good power and has no problem cutting through 1" limbs. It starts easily also. I only wish it was a few feet longer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product, Like the Different Angles of Cutting My HL94 does a great job, I have lots of hedges, for a smaller home. The different angles that the head articulates to is fantastic. One complaint it gets heavy after 30-45 min, but i am also 64 (but I go to the gym!)
