    Well balanced performer.
    I bought my HS 45 because I have hundreds of feet of hedge and many shrubs around my home. I quickly tired of dragging electrical chords and underperforming electric trimmers. I bought this trimmer almost on a whim when I saw it at my local ACA Hardware Store. Having been a customer and fan of Stihl for many years, I had no doubt about the quality and performance expectation. Which brings me to that missing star. The motor se ms a bit finicky when it comes to ambient temperature and hot/cold ... read more starting. I just can’t seem to find the sweet spot for the carburetor adjustments.

    The best machine that money can buy and worth every penny!!
    There is a saying that goes "you buy cheap and you will buy twice". This is true, when I first bought my home 5 years ago, my wife bought a cheap electric hedge trimmer. She used it a handful of times and it quickly started having problems such lack power, the plastic coverings were cracking and breaking at the handle, the electric plug base was getting loose and the extension cord would come out during trimming sessions just to name few. I picked up this STIHL model hedge trimmer and I ... read more immediately noticed the superior quality in design and performance. This trimmer is a beast and surprisingly very nimble and agile to handle and control. It's makes the harder jobs faster to get through without any problems. This device is lightweight, powerful, easy to handle and looks very sleek! Like I said before, money well spent!

    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.

    This hedge trimmer is one of my favorite piece of equipment now!
    I purchased the HL94 K today as I had a hedge trimming job to do, and the Stihl 94K came through like a champ. It’s light weight, powerful, and makes clean precise cuts. I would recommend this product for professional use.

    The best hedge trimmer I came across.
    In an effort to get my hedges under control, I went through about 6 or 7 hedge trimmers looking for one that would take care of the job. I used various expensive gas hedge trimmers, while these were powerful, they couldn't extend far enough. Then I switched to various electric hedge trimmers, while these extended further than the gas hedge trimmers, they had no where near the cutting power, so I was forced to leave somethings behind because the trimmer couldn't take care of it. But the HLA ... read more 85, wow. It's a little on the heavy side, but I think that's just because I'm super out of shape. This thing not only extends out to get me almost 9 feet of length (with how I can hold it), but it is also super powerful, it cuts through those branches that even the gas trimmers has a hard time with. It's a little on the spendy side considering you have to buy the battery and charger separately, but it is well worth it.

    Another well thought out product
    I've owned this tool for just a few weeks & so far I'm very impressed. I already have the battery powered saw, two ap180 batteries & the al100 charger. Being more than happy with the saw (although it has its limitations), I took the plunge & purchased the telescopic trimmer. The run time is a lot longer than the saw, easily an hour. Using this tool combined with a little tidying up in between, shifting stepladders etc. This tool + two batteries & the slow charger is easily on a par with my other ... read more cutters. It has a one year guarantee (two for the home user), & the quality you expect from stihl. Only downer is not being able to use it in heavy rain. Les noise, no petrol fumes & spillages & the customer pays to charge the battery. It just makes sense. Very pleased!

    WORKS LONGER THEN I CAN
    Bought this trimmer after I'd used every other type, 2 cycle, string trimmer attachment, electric and now battery. It out performs any of the others I've tried and the battery life will out last me. I used it on full charge and after 2 hours of trimming it had only dropped 25%. Put it on charger and back to 100% in less then 30 min. The extended reach in very nice in trimming wide and taller shrubs. The trimmer's wider jaw width makes it very efficient on most bushes I've trimmed. I going back ... read more for other battery powered tools since fuel is such a problem. It's a little heavy compared to shorter, smaller tools but takes much less time to complete project.

    Trail Clearing
    Used this trimmer at deer cabin for clearing trails and roads. Really works well on the smaller limbs, takes a little work on the bigger limbs form 3/4" and up, but I knew that before I bought it. Cleared about 100 yards of trails in about 30 minutes, I'm sure the trimmer could do more, I just couldn't keep up.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Well built, balanced, good power
    I have 300 feet of laurel hedge along with other tall shrubs that require trimming 1 - 2 times per year. The battery powered trimmer avoids the hassle of gas powered tools that don't tolerate inactivity for 3-4 months. The 3 hours +/- run time with the AP 300 lithium battery is more than enough time for my sessions with the trimmer (that's actually 4+ hours of working time since the trimmer is not constantly running when I step up and down off the ladder and remove clippings from the work area). ... read more The trimmer cuts well. I have used it for 5 weekends now. Wish I had this tool years ago.

    Trims Though Things that Electric Can't
    I was fed up using an electric powered hedge trimmer and always cutting extension cords so I decided to go buy a gas powered hedge trimmer. I went down to my local Stihl dealer and the guy there recommended that I get the HS-46CE, adding also that the pros love them and that they sell like hot-cakes. I took up his offer. When I got home and started it up, I could not believe how much it has. It could easily handle branches up to 1 inch thick and was also extremely light. I had no issues ... read more maneuvering this hedge trimmer at all and finished trimming my hedges in a quarter of the time it would take me using my electric one. The best thing about this hedge trimmer is that well, NO CORDS!.

    Another great Stihl product
    After using Stihl chainsaws, backpack blowers and trimmers for years, I recently added this hedge trimmer to my arsenal. I decided to spend a few extra bucks on this model compared to the entry level one. Better reviews and it just felt better. Anyway it made super quick work of our bushes and is extremely well balanced. I followed the manual instructions exactly and starting was a breeze. Initial power was decent but it gets notably better with a couple tankfuls of gas burned through it. I ... read more decided to spend extra money and buy the Stihl motomix fuel. Sounds stupid but for a machine that won't get used often, it's good to have a non-ethanol fuel in the tank. Pleasantly surprised by lack of fumes and smoke. Very happy with this product and I look forward to many years of reliable use. Oh... I also bought a can of the hedge trimmer spray. Excellent solvent and lube etc.

    Perfection
    Outstanding high-quality well-built lightweight hedge trimmer. This trimmer is another fine example of the quality machines that Stihl builds. It starts easily, is well balanced and doesn’t vibrate a lot and just cuts like a dream on all types of hedges. I only wish the blade was a couple inches longer but I’m assuming the manufacture knows what they’re doing in terms of product offerings. I actually enjoy hege trimming now and can’t wait for the next round.
