Rated 5 out of 5 by Top-notch hedge trimmer Best Hedge trimmer on the market, I've used other brands in the past but none compare to the Stihl HS 56 C-E. Easy to start, powerful motor and the cutting edge breezes through my Laurel hedges - I would recommend this product to anyone who needs a top-notch versatile hedge trimmer!!! September 5, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Pricey but worth it!!! I am a homeowner, but I do a lot of hedge trimming. The HS 56 C-E is an amazing tool that handles big jobs with ease, is great for detail work, and thanks to the guard at the end of the blade it is great close to the ground as well. The ergonomics, leight weight, and overall balanced feel made this unit the easy choice over the Husqvarna and Echo units I looked at. June 8, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great balance and weight ratio After owning a HS45 for 8 years I almost went back with the 45 but they only had the 45 with a 18" bar. So I upgraded to the HS 56ce with a 22" bar and I'm glad I did. Runs great, cuts great, and lightweight too. I've always been happy with Stihl products. June 2, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great machine for the homeowner. I was seeking a good hedge trimmer to use around the house. I wanted a light machine that was easy to start that wasnt loud was relaible and easy to use. This machine is all that. Very light weight machine. Very easy to start and use. This machine has a lot of power for the tough jobs. Highly recommended. January 3, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Hard to start My unit is very hard to start . WHERE DOES THE EASY START COME IN ? December 20, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent tool! This tool makes short work of trimming the hedge. Has plenty power to do the job. It gets a little heavy after while, but that's a fair trade-off for the power. December 5, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Another Professional grade that is perfect for homeowner. This is my third Stihl product purchased in the past 18 months. I've gone with professional grade products even though they all get homeowner use. This trimmer is perfect balance between the two, powerful though not too big. Starts everytime with minimal effort. It's not as loud as I originally thought. I found on average of an hour each use with no fatigue at all. Easily handles the typical pruning jobs, and can tackle some of the tougher ones that would normally require a set of loppers.Requires a minimal amount of maintenance November 19, 2014
