Rated 5 out of 5 by from Attachment - Hedge Trimmer Love this attachment. I did all the bushes in 1/2 the time it would take me with the old electric trimmer. Great Product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from HLA 65 One Year of Using the Product This maybe the best lawn care product I have ever bought. Hedging is a very labor intensive job in my yard. I have tried manual, electric and gas powered. This is the first Stihl Hedger I've bought. The weight is incredibly light. The weight distribution is perfect. The extension length makes jobs at higher or lower heights so simple. The 4 hr battery is perfect too. I'm totally serious when I add, that I was concerned I've have to add lawn service to my home. Not now, because of the HLA 65. This product isn't cheap, but it is truly first class and so easy to use. Makes an awful job 'almost' fun. It definitely makes this job rewarding.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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 several Stihl battery products and two sized batteries. The power draw was closer to the edge trimmer than the guzzling chain saw and blower.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just keeps impressing me! Was a little dubious when I first handled this in the shop as the balance seemed a little weird and blade speed a little slow (after using petrol and electric trimmers professionally since '95). However, every time I use them, they just keep impressing me more and more. With the AP300 battery, I can start a job at 8am and most times the battery is still going by 1pm - that includes a bit of clean up and ladder shifting inbetween cutting (and a coffee!) . It is such a bonus not to have to constantly fill up with 2 stroke or drag an extension lead behind me. The slightly slower blade speed has not been an issue with even large jobs taking the same time as 2 stroke/electric machines. My only criticism is that it's usually a two handed job to alter the angle on the cutting head which is quite stiff. They're also quite a bit lighter to handle than similar 2 stroke/electric machines. I've probably used over a dozen hedge trimmers over the last 22 years or so and these are the most enjoyable to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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). The trimmer cuts well. I have used it for 5 weekends now. Wish I had this tool years ago.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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 blower & trimmer but so far the run times are limiting. Hopefully that will continue to improve.
