Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent hedge trimmer Received the Stihl HL 45 for Father's Day about eight years ago. Couldn't ask for a better hedge trimmer. Easy to start and cuts hedge branches (up to 1/2") with ease and comfort. I personally maintain three homes (2.5 acres, 5.37 acres, and 1/2 acre) with this unit. All homes have intensive hedges and as long as you maintain this trimmer it will last a lifetime. Have only had to replace carburetor one time in all the years of owning. Key components to keep it working correctly is to maintain per Stihl's recommendations. June 14, 2015

Rated 1 out of 5 by Only ran 5 minutes The product was great for about 10 minutes until the throttle trigger assembly broke. Took back and received another one that was a pain to start. I have several Stihl products and this hedge trimmer is just a let down. March 31, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect occasional use trimmer i currently have about 20 Stihl products and love them all and this is another one that's great. All the negative comments I've read seem to be from people who don't have an awesome dealer like I do or they don't properly maintain their tools sure there is good and bad in all but best thing is always have good relationship with your dealer January 20, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by the right length for my hedge My trimmer is 6 years old. I purchased it new and was instructed by my dealer on maintenance and starting. It starts easily and runs fine . I always shake the unit to mix gas before I start it and before I add gas. I spray the blades with WD40 after every use. It is a great product and if used and maintained properly will give you excellent service. Every bad report I read indicated old fuel not mixed properly. January 12, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by unreliable Hard or impossible to start. Using new gas mixture with no ethanol. Dies or loses power when pulling trigger. October 21, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Hard to start I bought this to use at my personal house and rental properties. It has been hard to start since I've had it. You have to fight it to get it running . Would not buy again. I use stihl oil with ethanol free gas. I own some stihl chainsaws and they work great. Big let down. October 10, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Hard to Start. I have had this unit for several years now. I have several Stihl products, edger, string trimmer and chain saw. This is hands down the worst I've ever had. It has been hard to start from day one. I follow the starting directions per the manual which by the way compared to other Stihl products is a little different. It is to the point I just want to throw it in the garbage. The problem starting of this is a known problem and Stihl should have had a recall to fix it. July 17, 2014
