HS 86 T is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from replacement parts expensive and not readily available Happy with the hedger. A blade broke (my fault) and replacing it has proven almost impossible. Unless you want to buy both blades for $200 plus, we were told it would take two weeks to get the single replacement blade. After almost 3 weeks, we followed up and were told it would be AT LEAST two more weeks, maybe more. Ridiculous, and enough to stop me from buying stihl going forward --which we buy a lot of on the large farm we operate.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from the best We run a commercial gardening business here in palm springs. It gets really hot during summer (120° f) and these tools survive it all. We used to run shindaiwas buy we decided to try these in both 30 inch and 40 inch variations and we never looked back. They are much more fuel efficient and lighter. The springs supporting the engine actually reduce fatigue quite a bit. The only issues we have ever had are the carburetor (under warranty for two years, but it won't mess up as long as you use the correct fuel and oil) and the upper handle gets slippery while you are sweating. But other than the carb it has never been to the shop for anything else. I still wouldn't trade them for any other trimmers.I do also recommend getting the plastic guard to help setup the debris while you trim to make cleanup easier
