HSA 56
HSA 56 is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from It is so easy to start I previously owned an off named hedge trimmer. I had it for 8 years and it was hard to start and always in for repairs. I got fed up with it and replaced it with my new Stihl machine. I'm very pleased with it's easy pull start and the larger space in the reciprocating blades allowing me to cut thicker branches on my hedges and bushes. This is my first season using it. I'll winterize it for storage this winter and expect it to re ready to use next year and for many more seasons to come.Dan

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a wonderful trimmer. The HSA 56 has exceeded my expectations. It cuts faster and more precisely then any other trimmer I have owned. The fact that is cordless has made me more productive and the run time per battery is way better than I expected.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Expensive but works very well I live in the Los Angeles area. I need to trim my hedges two to three times per year. My gas hedge trimmer would not start [again]. Probably the gas went bad [again]. I get tired of adding new gas with oil and using only a portion to trim, and then storing the gas only to see it go bad months later [again]. And I do not want another corded electric tool. So I investigated the battery trimmers. On special sale, I purchased the FSA56 string trimmer and the HSA56 hedge trimmer and therefore got two batteries and chargers. I didn't think the hedge trimmer would hold up to the gas powered trimmer but it does. It is easier to use, lighter, and cuts just as well if not better. Having two batteries allowed me to run for a long time and I still had half-power left in the second battery when I was done. Stihl, you made a believer out of me for battery powered tools.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light weight and powerful This hedge trimmer is light weight which makes it easy to maneuver but it has enough power to get the job done efficiently. Great tool for the male or female gardener!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great hedge trimmer worth the $ I was going to get the smaller hsa 45, but needed something with a little more power for thicker branches. This was the right choice for 1/4 to 3/8" shrub branches. The battery power is excellent and it charges very quickly. I've never even come close to using up the full battery power. I only wish the blade was a few inches longer to reach deeper shrubs. Pleasure to use.
