Maintain hard-to-reach hedges with the STIHL HL 56 K (0°) extended-reach hedge trimmer. Designed for homeowners and beginning landscapers, this gas-powered hedge trimmer has a 26-inch short shaft which makes it easy to handle. With its advanced, low exhaust emission, powerful two-stroke engine, the HL 56 K (0°) is fuel efficient for a lower cost of ownership over time. It features a lighter gearbox than previous models, shifting weight to the powerhead for better balance and maneuverability. The fixed-angle zero-degree blade allows users to trim hard-to-reach areas smoothly and precisely.
