Homeowner Hedge Trimmers

Hedge trimmers designed with the user in mind

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.

    Plenty of power
    We have been using the HS 45 trimmer for two seasons and are well pleased with the overall performance. The engine has more than enough power to cut the toughest overgrown shrubs and the blades cut cleanly without tearing the leaves, even on holly bushes. There have been no problems of any kind with the trimmer, it starts every time as long as the starting procedure in the owner's manual is followed. The guys where I bought the trimmer showed us all about starting and using it when we took ... read more delivery and there has never been a problem.

    HS 45 with 24inch blades
    If ever there was a great hedge trimmer, it bleeds orange and grey! This HS 45 has power and fast trimming ability on even on thick branches! I decided to get the 24 inch blades for off property jobs and it was well worth it. Unfortunately, there are some drawbacks: During the beginning of the season, it does take a good amount of pulling to start it up, but I found that the MotoMix helps cut that away. The engine is a little loud, but the Stihl ear protection equipment takes care of that right ... read more away. The fuel tank is very small but refueling is a snap. Finally, the unit does get a little heavy if you haven't used it in awhile. ;) All in all this hedge trimmer is well worth your money and most importantly, your time!

    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.

    Great trimmer
    I purchased this unit to supplement the HS80 trimmer I own. I have a lot of landscaping to care for on my property and with the purchase of the HL 56K extended length trimmer I've reduced the time it takes to trim my property by 1/3. I could have used a little more length but for the money the unit will suffice. I'm not up and down the ladder as much. The unit itself has the power needed to get the job done. Blades were razor sharp and left a nice finish on the shrubs. I should note that the ... read more trimmer can handle branches up to 3/4" in diameter no problem. For the thicker branches i turn to my HS80. The thicker blades and wider spacing between teeth allows it to chew through branches over 1". The unit fires right up from a cold start no problem. The HL 56K trimmer is a winner!

    More than just hedges !
    I bought this tool for cutting along 1000 feet of 20 foot hedges that were gradually over the years taking my property over. That's what I bought it for... ! What I didn't realize is that, the tool is also GREAT for cutting tall weeds, including Johnson Grass ! The worst enemy to our weed trimmers ! Anyone that has put their weed trimmers into tall Johnson Grass KNOWS the outcome is stopping and pulling the grass out of the spinning head that gets clogged with the grass ! So.. Would I ... read more recommend it ? Absolutely !

    Time Saver
    I have had my Stihl hedge trimmer for 3 seasons now and it still works like new. Every other week I trim my hedge (see pic) which is about 300 feet long and about 8 foot high at it's tallest point. I sharpen it at the beginning of each season and do regular maintenance like air and fuel filter and keep the spark arrestor clean and it always starts like it did when it was new. It's such a time saver too.

    Another great Stihl product
    After using Stihl chainsaws, backpack blowers and trimmers for years, I recently added this hedge trimmer to my arsenal. I decided to spend a few extra bucks on this model compared to the entry level one. Better reviews and it just felt better. Anyway it made super quick work of our bushes and is extremely well balanced. I followed the manual instructions exactly and starting was a breeze. Initial power was decent but it gets notably better with a couple tankfuls of gas burned through it. I ... read more decided to spend extra money and buy the Stihl motomix fuel. Sounds stupid but for a machine that won't get used often, it's good to have a non-ethanol fuel in the tank. Pleasantly surprised by lack of fumes and smoke. Very happy with this product and I look forward to many years of reliable use. Oh... I also bought a can of the hedge trimmer spray. Excellent solvent and lube etc.

    Great for small occasional jobs
    I've had my HS 46 CE for about 3 months now - used it about 8 times. I've trimmed boxwood, lower braces of white pine, spirea , euonymus hedge, forsythia, yews, azalais, holy and carpet roses. All with comfort and ease - and 1/2 of time of the corded one I gave away. Gas power makes touch up fast and easy ! While the 46 CE tank only holds a small amount of gas - I have never run out of Gas. I always buy the pre-mixed ethanol free fueland would advise others to do the same.

    Trims Though Things that Electric Can't
    I was fed up using an electric powered hedge trimmer and always cutting extension cords so I decided to go buy a gas powered hedge trimmer. I went down to my local Stihl dealer and the guy there recommended that I get the HS-46CE, adding also that the pros love them and that they sell like hot-cakes. I took up his offer. When I got home and started it up, I could not believe how much it has. It could easily handle branches up to 1 inch thick and was also extremely light. I had no issues ... read more maneuvering this hedge trimmer at all and finished trimming my hedges in a quarter of the time it would take me using my electric one. The best thing about this hedge trimmer is that well, NO CORDS!.
