    Great Hedge Trimmer
    I purchased this hedge trimmer to ease my task of trimming all the bushes on my 3 acre yard. What would have taken me several hours was cut down (pun intended) to just over an hour. These trimmers are easy to start, have plenty of power, and are easy to handle. If you have used any of the other Stihl products, this one will be a breeze to operate and maintain.

    Well balanced performer.
    I bought my HS 45 because I have hundreds of feet of hedge and many shrubs around my home. I quickly tired of dragging electrical chords and underperforming electric trimmers. I bought this trimmer almost on a whim when I saw it at my local ACA Hardware Store. Having been a customer and fan of Stihl for many years, I had no doubt about the quality and performance expectation. Which brings me to that missing star. The motor se ms a bit finicky when it comes to ambient temperature and hot/cold ... read more starting. I just can’t seem to find the sweet spot for the carburetor adjustments.

    The best machine that money can buy and worth every penny!!
    There is a saying that goes "you buy cheap and you will buy twice". This is true, when I first bought my home 5 years ago, my wife bought a cheap electric hedge trimmer. She used it a handful of times and it quickly started having problems such lack power, the plastic coverings were cracking and breaking at the handle, the electric plug base was getting loose and the extension cord would come out during trimming sessions just to name few. I picked up this STIHL model hedge trimmer and I ... read more immediately noticed the superior quality in design and performance. This trimmer is a beast and surprisingly very nimble and agile to handle and control. It's makes the harder jobs faster to get through without any problems. This device is lightweight, powerful, easy to handle and looks very sleek! Like I said before, money well spent!

    Time Saver
    I have had my Stihl hedge trimmer for 3 seasons now and it still works like new. Every other week I trim my hedge (see pic) which is about 300 feet long and about 8 foot high at it's tallest point. I sharpen it at the beginning of each season and do regular maintenance like air and fuel filter and keep the spark arrestor clean and it always starts like it did when it was new. It's such a time saver too.

    Carburetor didn't make it 1 year
    Carburetor need to be replaced 10 months after purchase. The good news is that it was under warranty. The bad news is that it needed service at the height of the commercial repair season (spring). It took 3 weeks to get it repaired due to volume of business this time of year. Only thing that I don't like about the machine is the small fuel tank. Everything else is fine. It should be for the price.

    HS87R Great hedge trimmer
    I had a 28 inch electric prior to purchasing this outstanding trimmer. What took me 3 or 4 hours to trim is now completed in less than an hour, without having to use manual trimmers and cutters on large branches. Great product, easy to start. I should have bought one long ago.

    What a beast!
    This trimmer is a beast! It ran through my way overgrown shrubs like a hot knife though butter. A three day job with hand trimmers took about an hour and a half with the 87 R, thank you Stihl for creating such an awesome product

    HLA 65 lithium-ion extended reach hedge trimmer
    OMG this powerful hedge trimmer is awesome. It gives me the flexibility to trim the tops of my hedges, do extended side trimming on big reaches on my hedges and to do a great job of managing the vegetation along the side of my road. I have the ability to roam a great distance away from the house and do all of my work quietly. Thank you Stihl engineers; myneighbors love you. The next door neighbors also have this equipment.

    Nice Upgrade
    I had an electrical trimmer and moved to this battery powered trimmer with an extension. Wow, what an upgrade. No more cut extension cords (yes, twice) and fewer trips up the ladder. I was able to perform all low/close/high operations with one trimmer. Yes, it's heavier, but the work was done much quicker, and I dare say was more quite than my old electrical. It is plenty powerful and sharp too. With effort, I could cut through one-inch branches. The battery load isn't all that much. I have ... read more several Stihl battery products and two sized batteries. The power draw was closer to the edge trimmer than the guzzling chain saw and blower.

    Nice hedge trimmer
    This is my sixth Stihl implement, and it's a beauty. Quality piece of machinery, works perfectly like you'd expect it to. Now, i picked this trimmer because the specs indicated it weighs 9.4 lbs with the AP100 battery, a full 2 lbs. lighter than with the AP300. i bought the AP100 because I only need 30-40 minutes of run time (worst case), and the lighter total weight appealed to me, but therein lies the only negative. It's not a huge issue, but it's worth mentioning. With the AP100, most of the ... read more weight seems like it's on the motor/blade end, so the trimmer's a bit unwieldy. I have not used the included shoulder strap yet, so I'll give that a try next time. My advice though, is to buy the AP300 battery for it whether you need the additional run time or not. The balance will be much better. I was looking forward to trying it with both batteries in the store, but this trimmer had to be special ordered so I bought it sight unseen and bought the AP100 based on specs alone.

    Light, powerful, quiet and clean.
    This electric hedge trimmer is great. Has plenty of power, is light, less vibration than gas powered, clean and nice to turn on and off rather than having an engine idling while evaluating your work or moving to the next bush/hedge or shrub. So far it has not run out of juice before I finished a job or put it back on the charger while I break for lunch.

    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.

    Good power, battery fully charged in less than 10 minutes
    Good power, cut through a tough hedge with 3/4 in branches in some spots and did not bog down. The blade is extremely sharp, probably sharper than all the knives in my drawer. It was so sharp it scared my wife and she said she wasn't going to use it. After she saw me cut through the hedge she couldn't wait and asked me to leave one for her.

    Buy a Stihl the first time!
    Starts easy and durable. I cut mostly blackberry and light brush to keep my fence lines clear. I used a Poulan Pro hedge clipper prior to my Stihl purchase, it is sub standard compared to the Stihl. The Poulan blade assembly is prone to breakage because it is too hard, and/or not sharpened at the correct angle. The Stihl blade assembly is sharpend at a better angle so it cuts and doesn't shear like the Poulan. I replaced the blades on the poulan many times at great expense. Do yourself and your ... read more bank account better than that, buy a Stihl the first time.

    Plenty of power and easy to start
    This is an awesome machine. What use to take hours with a small electric trimmer can now be completed in minutes. The clean up is now the hardest part of the job; trimming the hedges is easy and they look great!
