Reviews

HS 86 R is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This thing is an animal! I have a small farm that I like to keep in good shape. There's allot of bushes and hedge that I need to keep cut back so I can run my tractor and bush hog close to the bigger timber. I bought the HS 86R this spring and used it this weekend. It is a brute. No complaints what so ever. It will cut everything you want it to. Very well balanced between the right and left hands. Great power. Well worth the money. Get fuel economy also. It ran most of the day on one tank of gas. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Trail Maintenance We use our trimmer to cut brush in the Capitol Forest in Washington. Our trimmer is surprisingly fuel efficient and capable of cutting medium to high brush. We opted for the 24" bar so more people could handle the trimmer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent I have this for heavy duty hedge trimming. The hedges are salt seeder trees cut down and trimmed as hedges. No other trimmer that I have tried can handle the job. Current trimmer is 8 years old and works thru the AZ summers of 120 deg plus. Love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A powerful single sided trimmer I purchased a Stihl hedge trimmer after my consumer brand trimmer required repairs for the second time in a year. I went with the single sided trimmer assuming it has more power for the cutting blades. I have three acres with variious shrubs and trees that require frequent trimming. The first thing I noticed is the lack of vibration from the 86R. The smoothness while running is impressive. The damping system works admirably, and this noticeably cut down on fatigue.The 86R is a bit heavier than the lightweight unit I an used to, but by no means would I consider it "heavy". The lack of transmitted vibrations allowed me to work longer with fewer breaks, and I had no arm fatigue when I was finished. The longer working surface allowed me to finish faster. It runs quieter than my consumer trimmer as well. I am not a fan of the Stihl gas cap design, but its a minor annoyance probably related to the older units. I have no leakage with the "improved" design.Overall, I would have to say I like the 86R and would recommend it to anyone looking for a powerful trimmer. It is a bit more expensive compared to the other brand consumer models that you find in the big box stores, but I have found that the initial investment pays off over the long run.
