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.

    An Excellent Purchase
    Moved to a place that has hedges, bushes, and growth along lake. Bought the HS45 to tackle the yard and that it did. Powerful, ease of operation, did the entire acre that made the cost and quality well worth it. Had difficulty starting at first - but actually then read the directions and missed a couple important steps in operating the choke during the startup phase. Once over that initial hurdle - all wonderful. In storer, I wondered about the weight, but in use - no issues as found even ... read more trimming a shoulder height hedge manageable.

    Starts easy
    I really like these trimmers. The only thing wrong with mine is every now and then I feel something binding up. Not sure what it is but, it does not stay around long enough for me to pinpoint where the issue is. But other than that it's my second purchase of this product. I got 4 Years of use, with one that I bought at a pawn shop. With buying this one new I'm looking for 6 to 8 years!

    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.

    ANOTHER satisfied purchase from Stihl
    The appearance is great. It looks like a professional piece of equipment. Well balanced in my hand as I use it. Starts easily. If it doesn't start easily, I'm doing it wrong. Plenty of power. It's had no problem slicing through thick bush branches. Not too loud. The only bad mark I'd give this piece of equipment is it's price. It looks, operates, and is dependable like you would expect from Stihl and it certainly has that high end Stihl price.

    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.
