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.

    Great Hedge Trimmer
    Bought this for my landscaping company used it recently on a larger job trimming hedges my crew loved it had plenty of power to get the job done it's not to heavy but does have some weight to it. The anti vibration system is great can use it for hours. Most likely buying another. I love the quality you get when you buy Stihl. It does take a few pulls to get it started but once you get use to it's not that bad to start.

    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!

    Started right up
    Bought and used a couple times, then started hiring someone to do the yard. After about three different people and lack of their reliability and now a couple years having passed, I decided to do my yard myself. Dusted off the trimmer filled with Stihl's MotoMix and it darn near started on the first pull but I was good to go on the third pull. Performs like a champ!

    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.

    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.
