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.

    Cuts thicker hedges like butter.
    I have the 30" blade and it definitely cuts as advertised. I am not a professional landscaper, but the unit is easy to use. My hedges got out of control so I needed to radically trim them. I had a lot of branches that were 1/4 to 1/2+ inches thick. I supplemented the hedge trimmer with a manual pruner and a Lithium saw. As expected, the unit starts instantly.

    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.

    Excellent
    The property I work on has close to 1500 lineal feet of box woods. They always need to be trimmed up before parties and such. These trimmers are light, powerful, and have no vibration. Swivel handle is a big plus for doing the sides. I can actually run these all day without feeling tired at the end of the day.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Pricey but worth it!!!
    I am a homeowner, but I do a lot of hedge trimming. The HS 56 C-E is an amazing tool that handles big jobs with ease, is great for detail work, and thanks to the guard at the end of the blade it is great close to the ground as well. The ergonomics, leight weight, and overall balanced feel made this unit the easy choice over the Husqvarna and Echo units I looked at.

    Excellent
    Having used several different hedge trimmers which cost a fraction of what this did I was never pleased with the results. This trimmer has made the investment worthwhile. I will never buy cheap again this starts every time and will cut anything I can get between the teeth. Great overall product with no major complaints. I only wish it had a higher neck on the gas tank so I could get it all the way full without having to negotiate around the handle and tilting the machine.
