Battery Hedge Trimmers

Battery Hedge Trimmers

Whether you use them daily, or just once a season, battery-powered hedge trimmers fit the bill. They have no engine to maintain, or gasoline to keep fresh. That means you can use them as much, or as little, as you need without the worry of stale gas. They’re also lightweight, start instantly and deliver quiet, powerful performance. STIHL cordless battery hedge trimmers are also available in telescoping models to bring tall hedges within reach.

    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.

    Elegant tool
    I'm a professional landscaper who's been watching the Stihl battery line for some time. I decided to jump in and buy the HLA 85 as my first battery powered tool purchase. So far, I'm very happy with it! It feels space age and elegant. It's incredibly quiet, the variable speed trigger is great, and my battery (AP 180) still has four green bars on the charge meter even after pruning several small hedges. This is not a light weight tool, and is built with high quality materials; the cutting side ... read more is still almost as heavy as a gas powered unit, but without the gas power head, it is much lighter to carry around overall. I'm very much looking forward to getting the other battery tools, as I feel this is the way of the future especially as battery technology matures.

    Suprisingly great
    I had the chance to use this unit along with the pole pruner and two of the 300 batteries. The hedge trimmer had great power and the telescoping pole was extremely useful. I did hedges all day on just one and half batteries which is inconceivable. When doing hedges I tend to take small breaks throughout the day, so it's great having that quick start/stop capability and even better to toss the ear protection on hot days. I have been through multiple 100 series stihl hedge trimmers and I still ... read more love them, but I will say I accomplished more with this unit. I'm a hard critic so here are my two dislikes: 1- the head should have more inbetween articulate settings as I needed them multiple times and 2 - the head is heavy compared to the battery side, which is extremely fatiguing to your forearm/bicep closest to the trimmer head. Overall great piece of equipment to have if you do a lot of big hedges.

    More than enough power to get the job done
    Went with the AP300 battery just to make sure I had plenty of power. Still shows a 3/4 charge with about 2 hours of use. Wondering if I should have gone with the smaller battery for the weight savings. This thing does have some weight to it so you get a good upper body workout when using it. By looking at it and using it, it becomes obvious that this is a well made and serious tool. So great to be able to do tree shrub trimming without getting on a ladder. Took me about 45 minutes to do what ... read more used to take me half of a day. I would recommend.

    Plenty of power
    Amazing product and rivals the gas powered models. Light, portable, and powerful. Highly recommend for a homeowner with a medium amount of bushes.

    Love the lower weight and no fumes!
    Love my new toy! We have a couple of acres of hedges and the HSA 56 was waiting to happen here. It cuts well and importantly, shapes well. Safety features are great but I have to remind myself to keep the blade away from my wrists when I do shaping of the hedges. Battery life could be longer but it forces me to take a break periodically. Would love to have Stihl add an additional comment in the user's manual; run it down to empty before recharging or recharge before empty. The comment about ... read more being able to cut hedges three football fields long is a bit of a stretch.

    Excellent power & very light
    STIHL has done it again. 20% lighter than nearest competitor. With blade tip guard and auto-cutoff when fully charged (so that you can leave the unit plugged in the charger), hedge trimming is a breeze. Took an hour for charging and runs for more than an hour. 5 stars in all aspects.

    Love at first sight!
    I could not believe how light this hedge trimmer was when I first picked it up. It works beautifully. I cut 32 shrubs, including several hollies and one very large holly and the battery still hasn't quit. These aren't for bushes that are out of hand and need an overhaul, but for shrubs that are kept trimmed every couple of months or so. They are easier to use than my larger Stihl HS45 gas hedge trimmers, which can handle the larger, more aggressive tasks. These will be my new "go to" hedge ... read more trimmers because of their incredibly light weight and how beautifully and easily they cut. I would highly recommend this hedge trimmer. It has an internal lithium battery and a battery level meter as well as a removable key for safety from accidental engagement. The HSA 45 also has adequate length and reach at 20". Another great product from Stihl, the company that never, ever settles for second best. Stihl is #1 for a reason. They never compromise their standards of perfection.

    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.

    Great tool
    I'm a landscaper and I bought this tool about 2 years ago. At that time it was relatively new to market and I was hesitant to spend the money required for the trimmer, battery & charger. So far it has been one of the best tool decisions I've made. Works as good as my previous Stihl gas powered hedge trimmer with no starting problems or any other issues related to gas powered equipment. I especially appreciate 0 emissions and low noise! Great job Stihl! P.S. I want to move to the battery ... read more blower & trimmer but so far the run times are limiting. Hopefully that will continue to improve.

    Well built, balanced, good power
    I have 300 feet of laurel hedge along with other tall shrubs that require trimming 1 - 2 times per year. The battery powered trimmer avoids the hassle of gas powered tools that don't tolerate inactivity for 3-4 months. The 3 hours +/- run time with the AP 300 lithium battery is more than enough time for my sessions with the trimmer (that's actually 4+ hours of working time since the trimmer is not constantly running when I step up and down off the ladder and remove clippings from the work area). ... read more The trimmer cuts well. I have used it for 5 weekends now. Wish I had this tool years ago.
