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.

    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.

    Another Professional grade that is perfect for homeowner.
    This is my third Stihl product purchased in the past 18 months. I've gone with professional grade products even though they all get homeowner use. This trimmer is perfect balance between the two, powerful though not too big. Starts everytime with minimal effort. It's not as loud as I originally thought. I found on average of an hour each use with no fatigue at all. Easily handles the typical pruning jobs, and can tackle some of the tougher ones that would normally require a set of ... read more loppers. Requires a minimal amount of maintenance

    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.

    It's still running great
    At a little over a year later, I have had zero reliability problems with my HS 82 T, so the reliability is there. I've found that the fuel filter isn't quite weighted enough, so when I'm pointing the trimmer downward, it will start to stall unless I keep it in motion enough. That's my only gripe, and an easy fix of getting a fuel pickup/filter with more weight from the dealer. There have been no troubles at all with the swivel handle, and I'm using that in multiple orientations every time I use ... read more the trimmer. After nearly 2 seasons of use, I highly recommend this trimmer.`

    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.

    Wish I had purchased this years ago !
    After so many years of struggling with a "residential" grade hedge trimmer, the HS 82R has made this chore so much easier and looks better. The rotating handle was a huge help in getting in a few tight spots too. Though this may be more expensive than what could be purchased at a Big Box store for a typical homeowner, I directly see the benefit of spending the extra money and having a MUCH better tool. Wow,...looks great, works great and got through the job much faster. There are so many Pro's ... read more to this unit. The only Con was that it was heavier than the residential grade hedge trimmer that I had used for years but this is not a deal breaker. My suggestions,...Buy it. You won't be sorry.

    This hedge trimmer is nicely balanced and easy starting.
    I used this hedge trimmer for probably 6 hrs. Straight and did not feel cumbersome or unmanageable. It was nicely balanced and easy to start everytime, hot or cold. The twistable handle made the machine very comfortable in any position. It is probably the best trimmer I have used to date and would buy again if the need arouse.

    You get what you pay for!!
    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.
