Rated 5 out of 5 by Pricise cutting. Well engineered design. I've owned 2 trimmers in the past (electric and gas) but decided invest in a Stihl. The blade cuts excellent resulting in a precise trim. The cutting bar is long allowing me to reach difficult spots. My next door neighbor also has an HS45. I've owned several competitive brands of power tools in the past but decided to go with Sthil for all my needs . They always start and are very reliable. September 23, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by aggravating I dont understand why stihl uses a line and a circle to indicate on or off. Why not on and off or even just off or just run. Holy shnikes i want to throw this thing in the high way.Its a mean machine but a word of advice. A black sharpy if you can figure out how to get it started once the manuel is gone. So you stand a chance on the cold start.And I dare you to find if the line or the circle means run on this web site. September 6, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by It's ok, could be better After the first 5 minutes of use, I noticed that it didn't want to idle correctly. Yes, it's a new engine, but my echo tools run great out of the box. They do cut hemlocks very cleanly and have the power to cut heavier branches but I'm not overly impressed after using far cheaper brands over the past years. July 21, 2014

Rated 5 out of 5 by Makes hedge trimming a breeze! The HS 45 is a lightweight, but powerful hedge trimmer. It's an excellent choice for homeowners that have trimming work that close to the ground. The short length of the HS 45 makes trimming very easy. For tall work, you'll have to bring out your ladder or opt for one of Stihl's other models. But for our needs, the HS 45 is perfect! (Wish I had purchased one years ago.) July 21, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by homeowner trimmers Bang for your buck plus it's light weight. It was $100 less than the next step up and lighter. I have these 2 or 3 years now I love them & maintain 3 properties with them. June 20, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent piece of Stihl equipment Had seven overgrown hedges and decided to purchase a gas powered unit for the work. Couldn't have been happier with the reliability and performance. The machine is lightweight and the no-vibration feature makes it comfortable to use all day. Went through 3/4 inch limbs easily. Having used Stihl products in professional landscaping, I knew that there was no better choice. This machine will not let you down. Well worth the investment. My hedges are knocked down and well manicured. Highly recommended! June 1, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Does not live up to expectations I purchased this brand new a couple of years ago from a reputable local dealer. It is completely unreliable, and costly because of it. If my lawnmower failed as much as this thing I'd need to be a millionaire to survive. It seems to have a very poor design that tolerates very little use. Believe the reviews that say UNRELIABLE. They are right on, but this trimmer is not. May 31, 2014
