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.

    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.

    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.

    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!.

    First gas trimmer - makes a quick job of trimming shrubs.
    My corded electric hedge trimmer died, and my neighbor has used Stihl for years and recommended this gas powered one. It is light weight,well-balanced, surprisingly quiet, doesn't get stuck or stall on branches, and is much easier and quicker to use. No more cutting through power cords. I love it and wish I would have bought one years ago. I particularly liked buying the Stihl 6-pack of oil and getting my warranty doubled to 4 years. With this positive experience, I bought the vacuum/blower with ... read more attached collection bag, and next spring I'll be buying the Stihl weedwacker.
