Professional Hedge Trimmers

STIHL hedge trimmers for professionals are in an entirely different league of performance and dependability. When you spend every day trimming hedges of all shapes and sizes, having the right trimmer is not a luxury – it’s a requirement. Our professional line of handheld and extended-reach hedge trimmers are made to start fast and cut faster. They feature anti-vibration technology, ergonomic handles and hardened, precision-ground blades that love those leafy greens. To help you identify model features, look for these corresponding symbols: C = Comfort feature, E = Easy2Start™, K = shorter shaft length, R = blade for heavy pruning, and T = blade for trimming and shaping.

And since each professional has different cutting needs, our hedge trimmers cover the gamut – offering quality trimming performance in a wide range of shaft lengths as well as fixed or adjustable cutting heads. Our professional hedge trimmers are also available in electric and battery-powered models, ideal for trimming in densely populated or noise-sensitive areas. Electric and battery-powered hedge trimmers are not only easy to start and maintain, they’re environmentally responsible and can help you save on fuel costs. No matter which STIHL hedge trimmers you end up with, you can rest assured they’ll deliver a well-rounded performance when you make your trimming rounds.

    Best equipment ever
    I used other brands of trimmers for years and it was always a struggle. Much down time and repair and hang ups. I bought a Stihl trimmer and it was a dream. It cut the thick evergreen hedges like butter. Why didn't I get a Still earlier? It would have saved me time, frustration and money. I will always buy Stihl from now on.

    Hedge trimmer
    This trimmer does everything that I needed. It is being used to clean the overhanging vine maple and brambles along a rural road. Cut cleanly and fast. The manual that shows the method of use with an swing motion was very helpful. The swivel handle is a great feature.

    The quality of this product really shows
    I have been using this new trimmer for a while now and I am really impressed with the overall quality of the product. This trimmer cuts through some large branches as well allowing for trimming of new areas as well as just upkeep on hedges. The large fuel tank allows for work to continue without constant refueling. I would recommend this product for anyone who does a decent amount of trimming. it is a little more expensive than some of the home store models but it seems like it will pay off in ... read more the long run. The only draw back is it is a somewhat heavy machine so may not be an ideal choice if you are concerned with weight.

    Best Trimmer I've ever used.
    I bought this trimmer on the recommendation of a friend. It has been everything he said and more. Vibration is a minimum. The blades cut through anything they fit around. I have thick multiflora. now I can clear it without having to get my hands and arms cut up from the thorns. I have miles of trails to keep clear and this has let me get ahead on this task for the first time ever. It is actually a pleasure to get out there and get the work done with this trimmer. The right tool for the job makes ... read more all the difference. I highly recommend this product.

    I bought this four years ago and it is Great!
    Although I was reluctant to replace my third homelite with a Stihl because I was paying for quality I am over-the-top impressed. This is so much better for all trimming than a standard size trimmer. It screams and I love using it. It's like the car that you love to drive, you just can't get enough of this machine. Do not hesitate, you will love it and no longer need to replace cheap equipment because this is built to last.

    great trimmer
    Have this trimmer for about two years and it's a junk yard dog. Great machine. Occasionally changed fuel filter after lots of use.

    powerful yet quiet
    This trimmer is just what our business needed for those taller and/or wider hedges. We have had this for over a year now and it is still as sharp as the day we bought it even worth all the use it gets. It was much quieter than we expected which was a great surprise. This tool has yet to be in the shop for anything. Highly recommended.

    Excellent Machine, works wonders and starts right up.
    I purchase this machine about two months ago and I am very happy with the product. It works in many angles and is an exceptional tool.

    All the features needed to trim a variety of hedges
    Works very well but the longer shaft makes it a little top heavy. If you have a lot to trim then periodic rest periods are advised. Otherwise, can not be a better trimmer on the market. The adjustable blade makes work easy.

    OUTSTANDING PERFORMANCE!
    I now own 2 of these units. They are exceptionally efficient, easy to use and comfortable to operate. I own many stihl products, and this is yet another amazing versatile tool. Starts easily and has an insane amount of power, cuts overgrown hedges easily and leaves a nice clean cut every time. I HIGHLY RECCOMEND THIS!

    Gaslike power without the gas
    The power of this is HSA66 is only slightly less powerful than the HS80 and after almost 10 years of the HS80 2 stroke smell I really like the HSA66. After the first hour or so of trimming we were nearly done with the job when I was walking around looking everything over before the blowers started. I saw a bush we missed so I picked up the HSA and while looking at the bush I instinctively pulled the center of the trimmer like I was trying to pull start the HS80. My guys all started laughing and ... read more it wasn't until I looked down I realized I had just tried to "pull start" a battery power trimmer. Ya, its that similar. Batteries are a real option for professional daily use. We are starting to phase out the HS80's and do not anticipate buying anymore HS81's.

    Great Power and Great Battery Life
    I was very skeptical of battery powered equipment but after buying a new home and going solar I figured I would phase out my gas equipment. I saw all the you tube videos on stihl battery tools and finally decided to try the hedge trimmer. The convenience of instant start, no fuel or oil mixing, no spark plug changes, and no intake filter changes, appealed to me. During its first use, I used it to trim 8-9 shrubs that grow like they are on steroids and I was left impressed! The power was there ... read more and I finished the job in 15 minutes. Prior to that I was using a black and decker with a power cord that would take me 30-40 minutes because of the difficulty with maneuvering around the electric cord to cut the shrubs. I cannot comment on the longevity or durability but I think for the homeowner this tool far exceeds expectations.

    This product is highly engineered and has the Stihl quality I expected.
    I needed a hedge trimmer that was light, powerful, and of exceptional quality. Since I own several STIHL products and have owned STIHL products for many years I am very confident that the durability and quality are in every one of their products that carry the name. I wanted a battery operated trimmer but did not want the increased weight in the trimmer. I purchased the battery belt and it works just wonderful. The standard battery will trim a large amount of shrubbery without recharging.
