HSA 66 STIHL Lithium-Ion Hedge Trimmer. Battery & charger sold separately.

HSA 66
HSA 66 is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light, powerful, quiet and clean. This electric hedge trimmer is great. Has plenty of power, is light, less vibration than gas powered, clean and nice to turn on and off rather than having an engine idling while evaluating your work or moving to the next bush/hedge or shrub. So far it has not run out of juice before I finished a job or put it back on the charger while I break for lunch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from very good product I have several Stihl battery products (pole saw, blower, hedge trimmer), all of which are great except the line trimmer (weed wacker). The line trimmer's head is poorly designed and leads to a lot of frustration. All of the products in this line have plenty of power and the battery lasts long enough. If you have more work to do than required for a normal subdivision lot, I would recommend getting a second battery and the upgraded charger. This tool is great because you never have to fight with the pull rope to get it started or worry about cutting an extension cord. Better yet, you never avoid stopping to clear debris because you don't want to start the engine again. Starting and stopping is just a push of a button and a trigger pull. I was surprised at how big of a branch on a hedge this device could easily cut through.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This hedge trimmer preformed a lot better than I thought it would. I bought this trimmer to trim balsams and bushes around the yard. My wife used it for cutting down weeds in her butterfly garden. She wanted to know why I didn't get one sooner. Used it only 4 time so far however, being a Stihl product I expect it to perform well for a long time. It is slick.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not like the cheap pretenders No negatives. Battery is a workhorse, and also re-charges very quickly.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Ergonomics were an afterthought I waited one year to write this so I would have a full opportunity to adapt to the product. Using the AP180 with this model provides to charge that outlasts the stamina of anybody doing hedge trimming. However, the trimmer is horribly nose heavy so the fatigue quickly builds up.Also, the safety engineer added an interlock to the front handle that increases fatigue as you must apply a firm grip on the interlock to operate the trimmer. This increases fatigue especially when trimming the sides of hedges where grip pressure has to increase to overcome the interlock. The quick fix is to wrap tape around this interlock to defeat it. I'd rather see it go away reducing trimmer weight and cost.While the trimmer has plenty of power, the bar length is too short (20") and tooth spacing is too narrow for many applications. These are areas that Stihl could easily be corrected with parts from the gasoline models.After buying this I quickly invested in the HLA85 and I'd rather use it in most applications. While it's a little heavier, the balance on it is far superior.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Been down under and back with my Stihl We have a steep slope (AKA cliff) behind our house that gets heavy brush overgrowth that has to be taken back regularly. I repel down and go for it. There is no other tool to use. My Stihl HSA 66 makes quick work of the entire job, including those pesky alder saplings, up to 3/4", no problem. My wife calls it "down under and back".Oh and there's our 20 foot tall Leylandii Cypress hedge. No problem. Straight as an arrow, flat as a board. The hedge, I mean.
