Rated 2 out of 5 by from Problem with drive from motor to cutting head Bought new...used for 30 minutes and did a great job. Next time I used it the cutting head would not engage. Took back to dealer who repaired it. He said the drive from motor was not seated properly. Next time I used it, the cutting portion would not engage. Phoned dealer and he walked me thru how to loosen two screws and seat drive shaft into head. It is now workingDESIGN FLAW?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Like the adjustable cutting head This product is solid and works well. Reading other reviews I agree it is a bit on the heavy side however I have found using a shoulder harness (from Stihl) it can be adjusted for much more ease of use while taking the full weight off your hands and arms while using the unit. It cuts well and in my case as an older man greatly helps the strain of reaching with arms fully extended as needed on my HS45 model. Also several times trimming over the years I had the unfortunate problem of wasps nests and getting stung up close to the hedge when their disturbed, with this unit your much farther away and greatly reduce the chance of that happening. Smooth operation and less vibration also made this model better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Theres room for improvement. I have used this on a few occasions barrowed dont The engine lacks RPMs so its wont cut as fast as some other hedge cutters. The blade wont go thought thicker bushes. where as my other hedge cutter will. There a small power band on that engine almost all or nothing. It would be very hard to part with money for this unit. The handle gets hung up in what you are cutting. Its very heavy tires you out fast. i noticed it was a bit off balance. I would like to see a engine that has more rpms so the blade dont bind up to much. I am very disapointed in this unit and will be considering other brands

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Frustrating Piece Of Equipment There are two issues with this hedge trimmer (and this goes for all of the extended hedge trimmers as well) - the first one is the biggest issue: there's not a nose guard at the end of the blade which keeps one from making dents in a wall etc. Echo has a nose guard on their hedge trimmers (which are also better at pruning smaller leaved plants). Because of this lack of ingenuity there is a 'kick guard' on the handle of the power supply. It gets in the way and is completely unnecessary if the hedge pruner had a nose guard.Like Echo does.The second thing is it's either on full blast or idling. The old skool power heads let you adjust the motor speed for what you want it to be. The new ones?Terrible. They tend to lock up too so pulling the chord to start one is a challenge often.
