Homeowner Hedge Trimmers

There are many great benefits to having hedges around the home – added privacy, lower street noise and better definition of your outdoor space. And with a STIHL hedge trimmer at your side, maintaining those benefits doesn’t have to be a chore. Our trimmers are lightweight, easy to use and designed to make quick work of overgrown shrubs and bushes. To help you identify model features, look for these corresponding symbols: C = Comfort feature, E = Easy2Start™ and K = shorter shaft length.

STIHL hedge trimmers for the home are also designed with comfort in mind, featuring anti-vibration technology and a well-balanced feel. Whether you have a few hedges or a few dozen to maintain, our gasoline-powered trimmers for the home deliver the cutting power you need, leaving behind that uniform, professionally groomed look. They also include all the features you’d expect from a STIHL-quality tool, including double-sided reciprocating blades, heavy-duty gearboxes and integrated cutter guards. Overgrown shrubs? Not at your house.

    LIGHT AND EASY
    I purchased a trimmer from Lowe's and thought it would be a good one, cheaper is not always the best way to purchase tools, it was a piece of worthless built imitation of Quality, returned it and Purchased this great tool, HS 45, as a home owner it does the job with ease. I have nothing but Stihl in my garden tool shed, Tiller, Pole Saw, Hedge Trimmer, Edge Trimmer with the Large Brush Cutter Blade, Chain Saw.

    works like a charm
    I just bought this 10/16/2015 to clean up some shrubs and bushes around my home. Wanted a Stihl brand hedge trimmer because I have a Stihl brand trimmer and chainsaw. This thing was a workhorse. It was no trouble cranking or cutting through my bushes and shrubs. Im glad i made the purchase and would recommend to anyone wanting one for homeowner use.

    Nice little pair of trimmers
    I am co-owner a small tree service called Barnhart and son tree service and I've had mine for about a year I really like them because they are super lightweight but yet big enough to tackle anything you want to I have done small shrubs and big with these pair of hedge trimmers. I honestly don't like the bigger trimmers because they are just too heavy when you're running them all day long. Again I have tackled small and big bushes with these little guys and they have done perfectly. I do got to ... read more admit I don't get a lot of shrubbery but I get enough that I want a good dependable pair of hedge trimmer's that don't weigh 3000 pounds and right here the HS 45 is the way to go!

    Awesome product
    This is the first Stihl product I've owned. Not sure why I've waited so long. The quality of this product surpasses all my expectations. Stihl will be my first choice for any future home care products.

    Outstanding trimmer as advertised.
    This trimmer has so much more power than my old electric trimmer. Lightweight, easy to start and well balanced. Has plenty of power to easily cut through larger branches. I got it home from the store and immediately put it to work, and work it did! Works great on hedges and smaller tree branches. Performs with the expected power and reliability of a Stihl product. This is my fourth Stihl purchase and I've yet to be disappointed. You can't go wrong with this trimmer.

    Great buy for the money and what a time saver!
    I used to trim bushes by hand for many years. I was a little apprehensive about spending the money on this. Once I did purchase, I wondered what took me so long. This cut my trim time by 75%. Best purchase I have made in a long time. This trimmer meets all of my expectations and more. The dealer was very helpful in helping me make my purchase. They were very knowledgeable and friendly at that.
