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.

    This product has great features
    This equipment is perfect for the hard to reach places. Very easy to use and the adjustable angles of the blade is very convenient.

    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.

    Great Tool for Southern Properties with lots of shrubs
    I bought this trimmer about six years ago, wishing that I had done so earlier. Where I lived at the time in GA, shrubs grow quickly so keeping up with the growth required long-reach trimming about each two weeks during the long growing season there. This machine always starts on the first or second pull of the starter rope if I follow the starting instructions. To keep it sharp, I always store it with the plastic guard in place and oil the cutter bar after each use with spray-on applications of ... read more WD-40, I am a homeowner in another state right now, it coming in mighty handy again for maintaining my landscape plants here as well. I expect it to last a long time, just like my Stihl chainsaw that is now 31 years old. I am finding that my small engines last a long time if I completely avoid using fuels that contain ethanol. Even big box stores now sell premixed gasoline for 2-stroke engines that contain no ethanol. Incidentally, this trimmer starts well, even on relatively cold mornings in WI where I now reside,

    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.

    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

    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.

    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.

Cuts through Parasitic Vines on trees that grow all over them in as fast as you can brandish this unit. trims and cuts Crape myrtles New growths Fast and to the ground. I even misuse this and cut through ground brush and ... read more Mondo Grass/ Monky Grass and do clear cutting. It has even gone through copper Sprinkler lines so be careful there. Cuts through larger branches in the way to if held on them for a few seconds. Had some 18 foot monster hedges and this went through them in record time. 4 hours before with other trimmers 30 minutes with this. I love knocking Down Over Grown Rose Bushes with it. Cut them up then slice and dice them into small pieces to shove into a bag. I am a handy man and I put this tool to its MAXX Abilities at multiple sites a week. Its NEVER leaving my tool truck. I can make my Rent in a week using this. Just a wagon This tool and a box of trash bags and a rake. Can make $900 a week walking down the street.
