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.

    Made my Hedge trimming faster and much easier!
    Very handy and convenient. Lightweight and very maneuverable. Great for hedges with smaller limbs. Battery run time and cutting power ok - but both could be a little better. Ran out of power about 15 minutes prior to being finished with front hedges.

    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.

    The best hedge trimmer I came across.
    In an effort to get my hedges under control, I went through about 6 or 7 hedge trimmers looking for one that would take care of the job. I used various expensive gas hedge trimmers, while these were powerful, they couldn't extend far enough. Then I switched to various electric hedge trimmers, while these extended further than the gas hedge trimmers, they had no where near the cutting power, so I was forced to leave somethings behind because the trimmer couldn't take care of it. But the HLA ... read more 85, wow. It's a little on the heavy side, but I think that's just because I'm super out of shape. This thing not only extends out to get me almost 9 feet of length (with how I can hold it), but it is also super powerful, it cuts through those branches that even the gas trimmers has a hard time with. It's a little on the spendy side considering you have to buy the battery and charger separately, but it is well worth it.

    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).

    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.

    Great hedge trimmer worth the $
    I was going to get the smaller hsa 45, but needed something with a little more power for thicker branches. This was the right choice for 1/4 to 3/8" shrub branches. The battery power is excellent and it charges very quickly. I've never even come close to using up the full battery power. I only wish the blade was a few inches longer to reach deeper shrubs. Pleasure to use.

    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.

    This hedge trimmer preformed a lot better than I thought it would.
    I bought this trimmer to trim balsams and bushes around the yard. My wife used it for cutting down weeds in her butterfly garden. She wanted to know why I didn't get one sooner. Used it only 4 time so far however, being a Stihl product I expect it to perform well for a long time. It is slick.

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

    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.

    Priceless Tool
    I am extremely impressed and happy with the HLA 65. It does an amazing job cutting blackberry bushes down, ivy, light brush, etc. Super quiet and light. Great quality. I cut light brush for 30 minutes, and the battery was about half. Sold on Lithium Ion. Worth the price. Make sure to get the Stihl Hedge Trimmer blade lubricant/cleaner aerosol can, too.

    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.
