Reviews

HS 87 T is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from For Deep Hedges I bought the 40 inch blade due to really deep hedges that I have on my property. The trimmer is very good but it is probably not something you want for a typical home as only one side has a blade compared to typical trimmers with two sided blades. After four hours of use, the weight does start to be an issue. It did save me considerable time compared to my old 22'' trimmer. I also liked that it was made in Germany. It started right up and went to work. For the typical homeowner, I would drop to the 30" blade as that is probably more useful

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product Just purchased my HS 87 T and gave it a run when I returned home. I was pleasantly surprised at how light it felt in my hands. The ergonomic design was very comfortable and it is well balanced. As far as the trimmer's performance, anyone who owns a Stihl product can attest that it speaks for itself! Although it is a bit on the pricey side, the performance outweighs the cost. I would definitely recommend this product to all of my friends!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This trimmer works great. I got the 40" due to the depth of my bushes. I'm able to hold the trimmer at the level I want my bushes and just walk down the row. The trimmer doesn't bog down, it just cuts.
