Rated 5 out of 5 by Nice little pair of trimmers I am co-owner a small tree service called Barnhart and son tree service and I've had mine for about a year I really like them because they are super lightweight but yet big enough to tackle anything you want to I have done small shrubs and big with these pair of hedge trimmers. I honestly don't like the bigger trimmers because they are just too heavy when you're running them all day long. Again I have tackled small and big bushes with these little guys and they have done perfectly. I do got to admit I don't get a lot of shrubbery but I get enough that I want a good dependable pair of hedge trimmer's that don't weigh 3000 pounds and right here the HS 45 is the way to go!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Not up to Stihl's reputation As we all know, Stihl equipment is the best. I had have 2 chainsaws, a string trimmer and a backpack blower for many years and haven't had any issues. This hedge trimmer has had engine issues from the beginning. Difficult to start, runs rough, floods, etc. Has been to the shop and will work for one day. Still love the brand, think I got a lemon with this one. I'll be looking at turning it in for a different model! December 5, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by A must have hedger Picked this up two years ago to replace a gas hedger by another company that was very unreliable, before that one was electric. Upset I wasted the time and money, should have bought the Stihl right away. Bottom line is spend the money on a Stihl right away, you won't regret it. November 23, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by works like a charm I just bought this 10/16/2015 to clean up some shrubs and bushes around my home. Wanted a Stihl brand hedge trimmer because I have a Stihl brand trimmer and chainsaw. This thing was a workhorse. It was no trouble cranking or cutting through my bushes and shrubs. Im glad i made the purchase and would recommend to anyone wanting one for homeowner use. October 17, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Reliable & Powerful Bought SH 45 Three years ago & it's still reliable & Powerful July 28, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by lots of power This is a great shrub trimmer for homeowner use. I have a small landscaping business and it works great, the only problem is that the fuel tank is very small. Sometimes I am trimming bushes several hours a day and constantly need to refill the tank. I will have to upgrade to a commercial unit for a larger fuel tank. July 4, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great hedge trimmer. I got tired of fighting electrical cords and low power. I bought a stihl trimmer and found it to exceed my expectations. It makes trimming hedges and Bush so easy. I highly recommend this product. As usual Stihl is the way to go. June 24, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love love it. This product has proved to be a great addition to our tools and equipment. It takes the place of one that is not so easy to use. June 23, 2015
