Rated 3 out of 5 by problem with product purchased this trimmer on 5/9/15. it worked great for 2 1/2 days then wouldn't start. took it to the dealer who told me it had a faulty carburetor and that they didn't have one in stock and would have to order one. surprised they didn't have a carb in stock or a loaner hedger to let me borrow til mine was repaired. greatly disappointed in this hedge trimmer. the saw is light weight and cuts super good when it's working. don't like the controls on this trimmer and wish it just had a cold start switch or a pull choke which in my opinion would be much better than the controls on this trimmer. don't like the controls at all!!! was going to purchase a stihl weedeater as well but have changed my mind based on my experience with this trimmer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Replaced my electric trimmer Replaced my electric trimmer and I am so happy. Lots of power, cut my trimming time in half. I've only used it twice since purchase so I'm a bit ahead of myself with quality and dependability ratings but I've had a Stihl weed wacker/brushcutter since 1998 and it's still going strong. Counting on this lasting as long. April 20, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product is lightweight, easy to start, fast and trims shrubs with ease. This is my first gas hedge trimmer previously I used an electric. Wow I can't believe how much faster and easier the HS 46 C does the job. It cuts larger shrubs with ease and it took me about 1/3 the time to do all my shrubs than before. I always had to worry about the extension cord and I can't tell you how many of those had been cut. I would recommend this to any homeowner. If I would have known how fast, lightweight and better this unit is than my electric I would have bought one a long time ago. Don't procrastinate go out and get one you won't be disappointed!

Rated 5 out of 5 by light weight with plenty of power This hedge trimmer is awesome. It is light weight, powerful, and easy to use. It is by far the best trimmer that I have ever used. November 13, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by First gas trimmer - makes a quick job of trimming shrubs. My corded electric hedge trimmer died, and my neighbor has used Stihl for years and recommended this gas powered one. It is light weight,well-balanced, surprisingly quiet, doesn't get stuck or stall on branches, and is much easier and quicker to use. No more cutting through power cords. I love it and wish I would have bought one years ago. I particularly liked buying the Stihl 6-pack of oil and getting my warranty doubled to 4 years. With this positive experience, I bought the vacuum/blower with attached collection bag, and next spring I'll be buying the Stihl weedwacker. August 30, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by The HS 46C has many great features and will let you go for hours at a time with its lightweight and well balanced design. I purchased the Stihl HS 46C to attack some landscaping that hadn't seen attention in a few years, so you can only imagine... EVERYTHING was overgrown. The Stihl HS 46C did a great job and is very reliable every time I reach for it off the hanger. I used to landscape part time and have used the pro series, and this model will rival the pro series!Pros: easy to start, plenty of power, lightweight and durable, cuts great and runs smooth!Cons: none.

Rated 5 out of 5 by So far, I thought I made the right purchase. I have to rate the dependability and value as average. Ask me after two years. But, if this trimmer is like my blower, weed trimmer, and chainsaw, I will not be disappointed. I burned through my hedges better than my old electric and battery powered trimmer. This gas powered trimmer is the cat's meow! June 19, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wonderful upgrade I have used the HS46 for a couple of years and enjoyed it's reliability and ease of use. I didn't know it could be improved until I purchased the HS46C-E and totally loved the improvements. It is light, easy to start, reliable, quiet and wonderful to use. I totally recommend it. The swivel handle would have been nice, but I still love it. March 14, 2014
