Battery Hedge Trimmers

Battery-powered hedge trimmers that deliver quiet, reliable performance

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.

    Been down under and back with my Stihl
    We have a steep slope (AKA cliff) behind our house that gets heavy brush overgrowth that has to be taken back regularly. I repel down and go for it. There is no other tool to use. My Stihl HSA 66 makes quick work of the entire job, including those pesky alder saplings, up to 3/4", no problem. My wife calls it "down under and back". Oh and there's our 20 foot tall Leylandii Cypress hedge. No problem. Straight as an arrow, flat as a board. The hedge, I mean.

    Not like the cheap pretenders
    No negatives. Battery is a workhorse, and also re-charges very quickly.

    Not just for tall plants
    I'm very pleased with the power and run time (AP180 battery). Unless you're a pro, you probably don't need the heavier battery. I was surprised that at least half of my use is at ground level. This trimmer reaches under fences, cuts brush that would choke a residential mower or string trimmer, keeps me "arms length" from potential snakes, and doesn't sling sap from poison ivy or poison sumac. It was able to "chew" through one inch saplings. It also did a great job on our larger shrubbery, ... read more although the tallest shrub still required a ladder due to its 8 foot circumference. I looked at the longer HLA 85, but this model is much easier to handle and is definitely the right choice for 95% of my tasks. I hoped to also buy a handheld hedge trimmer, but all of the ones weighing less than 11 pounds use the AK battery type (not interchangeable with AP). I'm very disappointed in that limitation imposed by Stihl. On a related note, comparing battery performance between tool series should be easier. Some are described in amp hours, some in watt hours, and some not at all. It makes me think Stihl may be hiding something. Bottom line: This is a capable replacement for gasoline systems. Highly recommended.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Awesome Trimmer
    I used the trimmer one weekend and it was powerful, reliable, and safe to use. The battery charged quickly and held it's charge well.

    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.

    Better Than Imagined
    I bought this product for home use; 2 to 3 times per year as needed. However, I have a lot of shrubs/hedges, typically a 2 or 3 day job w/ clean-up each time. I also own the Stihl blower and string trimmer (3 years old) which have served me well. Using my 3 year old battery (AP 160) I started trimming and stayed at it for 45 minutes before I took a break thinking the battery probably needed a charge while I picked up trimmings. To my surprise, the battery still had 75% life and charged to full ... read more power in short order using AP 100 charger. Cutting power was as good or better than anything I've used in the past. Loved being able to pull the trigger, trim, release trigger, move ladder (in some cases# trim some more, adjust length, trim some more and never have to stop and restart a gas engine or refill a gas tank. Super convenient! Adjustable cutting bar angle and extension pole length met every need. Very quiet as you would expect. Allowed me to start work early morning before the heat of the day without disturbing neighbors. This is a "Heavy" duty tool which takes arm strength to wield, especially with the pole extended. Weight #to me# indicates quality build; no cheap plastic or flimsy parts. What I expect from Stihl. I expect to use this product for many years. The HLA-85 paid for itself the first time I used it #compared to hiring landscaper).

    Good reach for large hedges.
    This trimmer can reach out a good distance. While I still have to use a ladder I can reach all the way across from my property. Low battery consumption, seems to last a good while.
