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.

    Outstanding tool
    After using an electric hedge trimmer for years, I decided to break-down and purchase a gas unit for around the house. Glad I did and very happy that we purchased the HS 45 because it is a real work-horse for any and all hedge trimming we have around the home. I must admit I was taken aback by its sheer power and ease of use. It is very easy to start and maintain. I absolutely love it and would highly recommend it to anyone who has hedges that need an occasional trim.

    Handles all I can throw at it
    This has been in my arsenal since June 2010. I opted for the 24" blades. My primary property is 85% surrounded by assorted bushes and hedges. The back edge of the property has a chain link fence that separates me from a farm. I turn the hs45 loose on it all. Stick with the Stihl brand grease, treat the blades as prescribed in the manual, don't leave mix in it all winter, and this will survive all you too can throw at it. It does let my forearms know I have been too lazy each Spring.

    Shapes and Maintains
    Reshaped a long hedge of Photinias that had grown into small trees. Did a good job-- esp. w/engine not broken in yet. A few months later & the HS-45 has come into its own. It makes maintaining hedges quite easy. I chose an 18" blade which is very good for working in tight places where I need to trim ground cover under shrubs or near walls. All in all a great tool that has the horse power to shape bushes & also maintain them without the hassle of extension cords or batteries running low.

    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.

    Almost a light saber
    I own lots of Stihl tools, finally bought a hedge trimmer. It definitely outperforms my old one. the blade is fantastic, cut through 1/2 boxwood limbs without a problem. One swipe and trimming is done. No debris caught in between blades, clean cuts. Light, powerful, the anti vibe is a welcome change. Never any fuel issues with 91 octane and platinum mix.

    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.
