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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    WORKS LONGER THEN I CAN
    Bought this trimmer after I'd used every other type, 2 cycle, string trimmer attachment, electric and now battery. It out performs any of the others I've tried and the battery life will out last me. I used it on full charge and after 2 hours of trimming it had only dropped 25%. Put it on charger and back to 100% in less then 30 min. The extended reach in very nice in trimming wide and taller shrubs. The trimmer's wider jaw width makes it very efficient on most bushes I've trimmed. I going back ... read more for other battery powered tools since fuel is such a problem. It's a little heavy compared to shorter, smaller tools but takes much less time to complete project.

    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).

    Well Engineered
    I like all of its features. Cutting a 9 to 12 ft high hedge 40 ft long was simplified. Battery life 4 hours on AP300, completed the job without needing recharge. Some constructive criticism from a fellow mechanical engineer on future engineering updates: - Shears could be 2 inches longer, usually high hedges tend to be wider as well. Mine is 8 ft wide. It defies the purpose of buying a long cutter when you still need to use the ladder to cut the mohak in the middle of hedge after both ... read more sides are done. - Extension shaft rotates side to side when cutting head is locked at 90' angle. Maybe key or slot the shaft for better tool stability. - Shaft locking bolt thread is too agressive. Lower the thread pitch for more precise locking control. As it is leads to: too loose or overtighting. - Bottom surface of tool at battery enclosure could be rubberized/ doubleshot molding to prevent cracking when resting on the ground. I had to rest bottom on the ground every cutter head adjustment.
