HS 87 R
HS 87 R is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Stihl Is as strong as steel This is my first Stihl and also my first single sided hedge trimmer. The first thing I notice the handles a farther apart and when holding the unit it feel a lot lighter and it's a lot more maneuverable and since my hand is not in front of the engine like on the double sided blade unit I can see better. Another thing is on the fist job I had to trim this long hedge that was chest height when I was dome I noticed that I was feeling fatigue on my arms and not my arms and my back like I normally do.Performance wise Stihl spec says this thing is geared for TORQUE to cut overgrown hedges let me tell you I was cutting this over grown bougainvillea that I was taking like a foot in other places even more the branches were 1/2 inch tick and this thing cut it like it was nothing and I was holding the throttle about 20% this is a torque monster I have cut 1" tick overgrown hedges no problem with this thing 20% throttle or less is all I need.I you have to cut overgrown hedges this is the machine for you!
