Rated 5 out of 5 by Stihl needs to get behind this product I really like Stihl products. I have owned chainsaws, edgers, hedge trimmers & a blower. Stihl makes great products. Having said that, I'm disappointed that as much as the company promotes "green" equipment, how little effort they are putting into having the new battery powered hedge trimmer available at the dealers. I was considering purchasing a HLA 65 but being a landscaper didn't want to buy one without seeing it, holding it and making sure I was going to like it, long term. To make a long story short: none at any Stihl dealer in my area/ region, dealers didn't want to order on chance I might not buy & if I did buy it sight unseen, could not return it if I didn't like it. This isn't some $250 hedge trimmer. It's a $750 hedge trimmer by the time you buy the big battery & charger! I realize that at that price point they won't be flying off the shelves, but how do you sell a product without a display/ demo at every dealer? I finally found a dealer that said he would order it & if I didn't like it he would buy it? Turns out I had my reservations after holding it & checking it out but bought it anyway, I really wanted to go gas less. So far so good, it's awesome to pop in the battery & go, no cranking, fuel, much less noise etc! Now if it will last like the gas powered equipment I may be considering the blower and possibly a chainsaw since I've already made the battery/ charger investment. Thanks Stihl for another great product! You built it, now display it, they will come... June 5, 2014
