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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Best equipment ever
    I used other brands of trimmers for years and it was always a struggle. Much down time and repair and hang ups. I bought a Stihl trimmer and it was a dream. It cut the thick evergreen hedges like butter. Why didn't I get a Still earlier? It would have saved me time, frustration and money. I will always buy Stihl from now on.

    AWESOME!!!
    I have several stihl hedge trimmers. this one is my favorite so far. This one is great because I can run the protective tip cover on the much and other places without worrying about damage. As a landscaper who specializes in trimming & shaping, this cuts cleanly & smoothly, plus its relatively* light (I'm a small woman*) and easy for me to start. After experiencing Stihl, other tools seem mediocre.

    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.

    Great balance and weight ratio
    After owning a HS45 for 8 years I almost went back with the 45 but they only had the 45 with a 18" bar. So I upgraded to the HS 56ce with a 22" bar and I'm glad I did. Runs great, cuts great, and lightweight too. I've always been happy with Stihl products.

    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!!!!!!!

    Great piece of equipment!
    I buy only Stihl equipment for landscape maintenance. I am a homeowner and landlord with 5 acres and 4 houses to maintain. Dependability and quality are second to none, and my local service facility does whatever is needed at a reasonable cost.

    no handle on front very hard to hold on to.
    Installed a front handle much better. it would twist out of your hand.

    Best Hedge Trimmer I have owned!
    I have owned many of the cheaper trimmers from Home Depot and Lowes. At first there was a bit of sticker shock. However, you really do get what you pay for. What used to take me the majority of the day to accomplish I finished in just two hours. I love the extended reach and adjustable angle. Easy to use and lots of power. Engine is not loud and very little vibration on the hands. I am now a true Sthil fan!

    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.

    Excellent Machine, works wonders and starts right up.
    I purchase this machine about two months ago and I am very happy with the product. It works in many angles and is an exceptional tool.
