Professional Hedge Trimmers

Perform quality trimming around the yard

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 product I bought way late
    Do not hesitate when considering the purchase of an extended reach shear. What a difference I have found between a short reach shear and the HL100K 135*. Less fatigue. Better fitting for all applications. Stores nicely. Wendy and Edgar both complained about hard starting. I also find it difficult to start the machine. Usually I pull the cord once without doing anything to the primer or choke, listen for the sputter, then set the choke. If it is above 60 degrees Fahrenheit, I'll set the choke ... read more and pull once, pull off the choke and hold the trigger fully open and usually get a good start after a pull or two. If you need help, see the dealer. They can be tricky to the inexperienced. I've had the shear for a good five years and the blade is sharp after trimming hundreds of shrubs. Easily cuts 3/4" woody stems. Easy to keep an even cut over long stretches of hedge. I typically use only straight. Rarely use the adjustable angle but for storage. You'll be happy to stand straight up instead of bending over. Don't use at half throttle for best results. Also, as another post stated, clean with the Stihl aerosol shear cleaner and resin remover after use. Keep your gearbox greased with Stihl Multilube. And lastly, use only non-ethanol fuel. If you're using it as a homeowner (periodically), I would recommend emptying the fuel tank and running the fuel out until it dies. Then the fuel lines have air in them, not fuel, therefore will prevent failure. Don't leave it unlocked either. People with no money really want one of these that someone else paid for. Take what you will from my opinion and you will enjoy a great tool for a long time! Manufactured in USA

    You get what you pay for
    Excellent power, nice reach, really easy to use. Some might complain about the weight, but it's not a problem. I also love how the blades fold in for easy storage. I'm also only using pre mixed 50:1 fuel, since it has no ethanol.

    Plenty of power and easy to start
    This is an awesome machine. What use to take hours with a small electric trimmer can now be completed in minutes. The clean up is now the hardest part of the job; trimming the hedges is easy and they look great!

    Awesome tool
    I absolutely love these hedgers!! My old ones were another common brand I constantly had problems with. These are powerful, sharp and start almost immediately every time! I LOVE STIHL. My chainsaw is an old stihl model 021 production started in 1990 and it still starts and runs like a top. Also have gas edger I use a lot. Highly recommend this product!!

    Awesome hedge trimmer!
    I bought this a couple weeks ago to cut back the overgrowing blackberries on my long driveway. This thing is awesome! It made quick work of a big job and did it without a single issue.

    I used these for the first time on a large property that was extremely overgrown. Trimmed up touchy boxwoods cleanly. Cut right through large woody branches on burning bushes with ease, grasses, evergreens, everything. It ran much, much longer on a single tank of fuel than the 46 I've used professionally the last 6 years. I love this unit and can't wait to use it again.

    Best hedge trimmer ever
    I got mine this year because my HS 80 was getting dull it was a good trimmer and still is but i just fell in love with the HS 82r it has a lot more power and makes trimming bushes with easy, i would recommend this trimmer to any one.

    professional hedge trimmers
    Amazing product moved up from the hs 45 the hs 82t has more power no vibration and the exhaust is channeled to the front of the trimmer away from the operator. Rotating rear handle is great for long hedges. Overall the best trimmer on the market today well thought out features perfect for the professional.

    Awesome hedge trimmers
    Used them for the 2nd weekend in a row. What a difference from box store junk! Easy to start not to heavy well balanced. Worth every penny. The power is awesome. Recently added these to my Stihl collection even though I will only use these 2 or 3 times a year I feel they are very well built and will last a long time. Thank you Stihl for another awesome product

    Should have bought this years ago
    I love this trimmer. I haven't had this more than two days, so my dependability rating is purely a guess, based on my other, older Stihl equipment (FS 85 trimmer and 036 Pro chainsaw). I don't make money at this job, but I do have to cut about 200' total of hedges with parts over 6’ tall, twice a week in the springtime, then tapering to every 2 weeks as the summer heat picks up and the growth slows. After 18 years learning the Zen of keeping these straight and sharp, I'll call myself an ... read more expert. I bought this HS 82 T to supplement my FS 85 which has an adjustable angle trimmer on the end of a 5’ rod. That FS 85 has been great for the last 15 years, but I've grown tired of swinging the relatively short trimmer on the end of the long and heavy stick. I would've tried the 40" 87 T if it came in double-sided, but my hedge type only does well when I swing the cut in both directions to keep the branches only pointing outward not vertical, and I didn't want to walk twice up and down their lengths. This also looked better than the 87 T to flip upside down and use above my head. For my job, this trimmer is fantastic. It has a lightweight aluminum stiffener along the length of the bar that's not too tall to get in the way. Mine didn't come with the nifty semi-circle protector at the tip as in the picture, but my FS 85 didn't have one either, and I haven't had a problem from the occasional ding onto the sidewalk. The exhaust being ported toward away from me and toward the cutter is more than welcome. It’s a much quieter running machine than the FS85, with none of its “ding ding ding” of the centrifugal clutch. The weight on this felt much lighter than the similar trimmer from another brand that I tried. They’re nearly the same dry weight on paper, but for me it's not about total weight, it's about the balance. I need to swing the trimmer a zillion times, and for that this trimmer is a dream, beating the other hands down. One thing that surprised me is that I also really like the rotating trigger handle. At first I thought it too gimmicky, but it really is easier to use the trimmer when the handle is oriented right. I especially like putting it sideways, then the trimmer feels more like it’s in chainsaw mode. Very comfy. I hope I don’t wear out the mechanism, as the plastic-on-plastic swivel handle is the one thing I’m a little worried about for long-term durability. The vibration isolation works very well. I didn’t come in after work with my fingers still vibrating from gripping the trimmer for hours, as always happens with using my FS 85. I’d even tried special gloves to reduce the nerve damage, but their thick foam made the work harder. With the HS 82 I got no such problem, and was only wearing regular leather work gloves. With the weighted fuel filter, the trimmer works great in any orientation -- sideways, pointed up or down, and upside down while over my head. I had no fuel feed problems, and speaking of fuel, it seems to be fairly fuel efficient too, which is nice. In summary, the specs of this trimmer met the specs for my task, and the rest of the features have made me very happy to use this fantastic tool.

    Reliable & powerful
    I bought the 87R because I moved onto some new property and need to clear brush growing over and through the fences along the property line. I picked the R model because it is described has having extra torque for cutting thicker vegetation. This machine does not disappoint! It starts easily and the controls are very ergonomic--even though I am left-handed and this machine is built for a right-handed person I find it very comfortable to use. It has plenty of power. It easily cuts through ... read more yaupon, blackberry, brambles, and other misc brush up through 1/2" thick with the engine at partial throttle! I'm sure it has the power to cut thicker brush, I just haven't encountered it yet. When trimming along the fenceline I like the fact that I can concentrate on making sure I don't strike the fence, and otherwise just let the machine do its thing. I don't have to worry about bogging it down or taking too heavy of a cut--it just cuts whatever gets in front of it. The anti-vibe system on this machine is also fantastic. It feels very smooth to run with minimal vibration transferred back to the user. That was something I didn't really think about when I bought the unit but I noticed it right away when I first ran it. This trimmer is not cheap, but I learned years ago that professional quality power equipment is worth every penny. Instead of buying homeowner gear over and over again because it is impractical if not impossible to repair, buy pro gear ONCE and save a lot of money in the long run. Not to mention you can enjoy the increase in productivity at the same time.

    This Stihl Is as strong as steel
    This is my first Stihl and also my first single sided hedge trimmer. The first thing I notice the handles a farther apart and when holding the unit it feel a lot lighter and it's a lot more maneuverable and since my hand is not in front of the engine like on the double sided blade unit I can see better. Another thing is on the fist job I had to trim this long hedge that was chest height when I was dome I noticed that I was feeling fatigue on my arms and not my arms and my back like I normally ... read more do. Performance wise Stihl spec says this thing is geared for TORQUE to cut overgrown hedges let me tell you I was cutting this over grown bougainvillea that I was taking like a foot in other places even more the branches were 1/2 inch tick and this thing cut it like it was nothing and I was holding the throttle about 20% this is a torque monster I have cut 1" tick overgrown hedges no problem with this thing 20% throttle or less is all I need. I you have to cut overgrown hedges this is the machine for you!

    HS87R Great hedge trimmer
    I had a 28 inch electric prior to purchasing this outstanding trimmer. What took me 3 or 4 hours to trim is now completed in less than an hour, without having to use manual trimmers and cutters on large branches. Great product, easy to start. I should have bought one long ago.

    Buy it. Simple
    If you're on the fence, don't be. 1) Its Stihl, 2) Its Stihl. I just got back home with these and couldn't wait to test them out. Glad I didn't. This is my new favorite tool. The cut was smooth and the machine isn't too heavy for me personally because I was able to keep my normal sway without fatiguing too quickly. If you have other branded trimmers and you purchase these, you won't have the other brand for long.
