Professional Hedge Trimmers

STIHL hedge trimmers for professionals are in an entirely different league of performance and dependability. When you spend every day trimming hedges of all shapes and sizes, having the right trimmer is not a luxury – it’s a requirement. Our professional line of handheld and extended-reach hedge trimmers are made to start fast and cut faster. They feature anti-vibration technology, ergonomic handles and hardened, precision-ground blades that love those leafy greens. To help you identify model features, look for these corresponding symbols: C = Comfort feature, E = Easy2Start™, K = shorter shaft length, R = blade for heavy pruning, and T = blade for trimming and shaping.

And since each professional has different cutting needs, our hedge trimmers cover the gamut – offering quality trimming performance in a wide range of shaft lengths as well as fixed or adjustable cutting heads. Our professional hedge trimmers are also available in electric and battery-powered models, ideal for trimming in densely populated or noise-sensitive areas. Electric and battery-powered hedge trimmers are not only easy to start and maintain, they’re environmentally responsible and can help you save on fuel costs. No matter which STIHL hedge trimmers you end up with, you can rest assured they’ll deliver a well-rounded performance when you make your trimming rounds.

    Great Tool!
    I was going to purchase the "K" version, but I'm glad I didn't. I had a huge shrub job that I could not access with a ladder and this was the answer. I love the 13 positions that this machine offers.

    Proud Sthil Owner
    Fed up with bringing huge ladders on the job. Very productive, safe operation, compact design. Saves your back on long runs on tall shrubs. Only two things that i dislike on the unit, If you are right handed you have to be on the right side of the engin or you face the carb down which will cause the machine to stall. Also vary suprised how heavy the cutting head is compared to the engine, it semes that the balance is off. only had it for a month so i can not give the most detal info on the ... read more product. But so far i am vary impressed.

    powerful yet quiet
    This trimmer is just what our business needed for those taller and/or wider hedges. We have had this for over a year now and it is still as sharp as the day we bought it even worth all the use it gets. It was much quieter than we expected which was a great surprise. This tool has yet to be in the shop for anything. Highly recommended.

    Great machine
    I had a load of huge bushes that were taking over my side walk. I dreaded using my old electric clipper. It aways took so long and trimmer wouldn't cut the thick branches. I decided on the HS56c-e with the recommendation from the dealer. I could have bought the home owner model for a lot less. I'm glad I spent the extra money for the HSC-E. This machine cut the bushes with ease and no bogging down. I was amazed how quick I was able trim all my bushes. I am very satisfied. Spend the extra mony. ... read more You won't be disappointed. Great machine.

    light powerful hedgetrimmer
    I bought this to replace a echo unit I was having problems with and am very satisfied with it.it is lighter and better balanced then any other gas hedge trimmer I have ever used and has plenty of power.I did have to take mine back to the dealer because of a carb issue but that was quickly resolved and has run perfect ever since.

    Best I've ever used!
    I had read some spotty reviews about the engine, but took a chance when I realized the machine with the best reviews had the same motor. I runs great! Easy, reliable start, cold or hot, it cuts like nothing I have ever owned! I have overgrown hedges and oleanders . The thicker branches (1"+) take a little longer, but it goes thru cleanly. The only thing I didn't appreciate was when cutting high, the exhaust blows right in my face, but its not Stihl's fault I let the plants grow so high.

    I bought this four years ago and it is Great!
    Although I was reluctant to replace my third homelite with a Stihl because I was paying for quality I am over-the-top impressed. This is so much better for all trimming than a standard size trimmer. It screams and I love using it. It's like the car that you love to drive, you just can't get enough of this machine. Do not hesitate, you will love it and no longer need to replace cheap equipment because this is built to last.

    Amazing!!
    This is a good product being for the price and power it puts out. I also own the HL 100, and both leave quality work behind. It's perfect for the smaller bushes and shrubs and everything in between.

    This is truly a great hedge trimmer.
    I have owned several hedge trimmers in my past. All of them were a extreme pain to CRANK and to keep running and to keep out of the repair shop. The hedges at my home are very tall and large,the branches are an average of 1 inch thick and the HL 90 K cuts through them like soft butter. The extended shaft makes the work safer and faster to do especially when you work from a ladder. I own several pieces of out door power equipment which I am changing over to STIHL products, for 3-great reasons. ... read more 1-Dependability 2-Reliably 3-MADE IN THE USA!!!!!!! Thanks STIHL for the great equipment and all that you do!!!!

    Does a great job
    It takes a little practice, but using this machine makes trimming bushes and hedges so much easier. It has plenty of power and cuts easily through foliage. The only difficulty I have had from time to time is starting it, but once I get it going, it runs great. It does get a little heavy after a while, but it adjusts angles quickly and easily.

    This thing is an animal!
    I have a small farm that I like to keep in good shape. There's allot of bushes and hedge that I need to keep cut back so I can run my tractor and bush hog close to the bigger timber. I bought the HS 86R this spring and used it this weekend. It is a brute. No complaints what so ever. It will cut everything you want it to. Very well balanced between the right and left hands. Great power. Well worth the money. Get fuel economy also. It ran most of the day on one tank of gas. Highly recommended.

    Excellent
    I have this for heavy duty hedge trimming. The hedges are salt seeder trees cut down and trimmed as hedges. No other trimmer that I have tried can handle the job. Current trimmer is 8 years old and works thru the AZ summers of 120 deg plus. Love it.

    Trail Maintenance
    We use our trimmer to cut brush in the Capitol Forest in Washington. Our trimmer is surprisingly fuel efficient and capable of cutting medium to high brush. We opted for the 24" bar so more people could handle the trimmer.

    Trail Clearing
    Used this trimmer at deer cabin for clearing trails and roads. Really works well on the smaller limbs, takes a little work on the bigger limbs form 3/4" and up, but I knew that before I bought it. Cleared about 100 yards of trails in about 30 minutes, I'm sure the trimmer could do more, I just couldn't keep up.
