    Plenty of power
    We have been using the HS 45 trimmer for two seasons and are well pleased with the overall performance. The engine has more than enough power to cut the toughest overgrown shrubs and the blades cut cleanly without tearing the leaves, even on holly bushes. There have been no problems of any kind with the trimmer, it starts every time as long as the starting procedure in the owner's manual is followed. The guys where I bought the trimmer showed us all about starting and using it when we took ... read more delivery and there has never been a problem.

    A win for Stihl!
    I've owned this hedge trimmer with 24" blades for ten years now. It has been exceptional. It gets fairly heavy use from me about 7 months of the year. I just this week had the blades sharpened for the first time. It still cut ok, but I had a couple areas in high use zones of the blades that looked a little too worn, and didn't quite cut like in the past. I've been very happy with its power, ease of starting and blade life!

    Great Hedge Trimmer
    Bought this for my landscaping company used it recently on a larger job trimming hedges my crew loved it had plenty of power to get the job done it's not to heavy but does have some weight to it. The anti vibration system is great can use it for hours. Most likely buying another. I love the quality you get when you buy Stihl. It does take a few pulls to get it started but once you get use to it's not that bad to start.

    This hedge trimmer preformed a lot better than I thought it would.
    I bought this trimmer to trim balsams and bushes around the yard. My wife used it for cutting down weeds in her butterfly garden. She wanted to know why I didn't get one sooner. Used it only 4 time so far however, being a Stihl product I expect it to perform well for a long time. It is slick.

    Just what I was looking for
    I was looking for a battery power hedge trimmer and found the perfect one that runs for a long time and I can change the battery. I was really impressed with the way it cuts small branches and trims so nice. So much better then my old hedge trimmer. I also like that I don’t need to have an electric cord where ever I go with this trimmer. I did get the upgrade battery and the upgrade charger with it and that really charges fast too. Well designed and so glad I bought this one.

    HSA 66
    Great trimmer! I bought it to use around a pool, so I would not have an extension cord around the water. I purchased the AP300 battery, and AL300 charger as well. We used it for around 3 hours and still had 75% of the battery life remaining.

    HLA 65 lithium-ion extended reach hedge trimmer
    OMG this powerful hedge trimmer is awesome. It gives me the flexibility to trim the tops of my hedges, do extended side trimming on big reaches on my hedges and to do a great job of managing the vegetation along the side of my road. I have the ability to roam a great distance away from the house and do all of my work quietly. Thank you Stihl engineers; myneighbors love you. The next door neighbors also have this equipment.

    Great tool
    I'm a landscaper and I bought this tool about 2 years ago. At that time it was relatively new to market and I was hesitant to spend the money required for the trimmer, battery & charger. So far it has been one of the best tool decisions I've made. Works as good as my previous Stihl gas powered hedge trimmer with no starting problems or any other issues related to gas powered equipment. I especially appreciate 0 emissions and low noise! Great job Stihl! P.S. I want to move to the battery ... read more blower & trimmer but so far the run times are limiting. Hopefully that will continue to improve.

    Maiden Voyage
    Just put to use my new HLA 65 hedge trimmer. Obviously too early to really evaluate dependability. However, I trimmed 10, 8 ft tall pittosporum hedge, which took me about an hour to trim all sides and tops. Filled a large 75 gallon can. The super sharp blades cut fairly thick branches 3/4" to 1" without any problem. I was able to control the trimmer to make perfectly even cuts. The trimmer is well balanced and seems light. I'm going to move the middle handle around to get it into a preferred ... read more position. A torx wrench is included with the machine to loosen the handle.The articulated head was easy to move with a pull down on the unlocking handle and grabbing the black plastic handle on the cutting head to change the head angle. I bought the AL 100 battery and the hours worth of trimming used 1/4 of the battery charge, for me, homeowner, that should be plenty.

    Great lightweight unit
    Great light weight unit, the only problem is that even after I use it and spray the bar after time it does not have the power to start because the cutting bar shears are stuck. I have to loosen the screws and pry with a putty knife to start it out. Then re tighten the screws. I tried spraying several time with the STIHL bar cleaner and lub. and it still sticks

    A Good Piece of Equipment
    This is just what the doctor ordered for our yard work. It made quick work of trimming the bushes and shrubs and is easy to start and use. Those are the two qualities that make all the difference in the world for me.

    Great for small yards
    I have only used the trimmer twice, but it has met my expectations. After trimming three medium sized bushes, there was no noticeable battery drain as measured by the built-in meter. I really like the light weight - much less strain on my shoulders than with heavier models. I believe that it meets the specs for size of branch it will cut, but it did stall out when I tried to remove one year's growth on a mature laurel. So I will just trim at six month intervals.

    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!

    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.

    Buy a Stihl the first time!
    Starts easy and durable. I cut mostly blackberry and light brush to keep my fence lines clear. I used a Poulan Pro hedge clipper prior to my Stihl purchase, it is sub standard compared to the Stihl. The Poulan blade assembly is prone to breakage because it is too hard, and/or not sharpened at the correct angle. The Stihl blade assembly is sharpend at a better angle so it cuts and doesn't shear like the Poulan. I replaced the blades on the poulan many times at great expense. Do yourself and your ... read more bank account better than that, buy a Stihl the first time.

    Awesome tool
    I absolutely love these hedgers!! My old ones were another common brand I constantly had problems with. These are powerful, sharp and start almost immediately every time! I LOVE STIHL. My chainsaw is an old stihl model 021 production started in 1990 and it still starts and runs like a top. Also have gas edger I use a lot. Highly recommend this product!!

    Reliable, easy starting, pro hedger.
    I bought this hedger a few years back and used it for a short period and sadly they got stolen. I was recently contacted by my local lawn mower shop where I originally purchased the unit that someone brought a hedger in that they had found and because it had the business label sticker where it was originally purchased they brought it there hoping to find the owner. When I arrived to see it it was used quite a bit :( I then told him to service it and get it back in good working order. Now here we ... read more are 2 weeks later and I got my hs56 back and couldn’t be happier. This is an amazing unit it’s lightweight powerful and very well balanced! I’m so blessed to get my stolen unit back thanks stihl for your professional serial number I’d system. That allows the dealer to register the unit to customer I have got my tool back. 5 stars thanks Pauli’s lawn equipment!
