Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Hedge Trimmer I purchased this hedge trimmer to ease my task of trimming all the bushes on my 3 acre yard. What would have taken me several hours was cut down (pun intended) to just over an hour. These trimmers are easy to start, have plenty of power, and are easy to handle. If you have used any of the other Stihl products, this one will be a breeze to operate and maintain. August 9, 2016

Rated 4 out of 5 by Good little hedger I have lots of Stihl products but for some reason I never got a hedge trimmer until the other day. I have been thinking about it for at least a year, maybe more. Do I really need it and if so do I start small or go big. Such choices. I can have anything I want but I still started small because small and light always has a place in my world. If my tool is too heavy I won't use it and I kind of have a rule of around 10 pounds for my stihl toys so I got this little guy. On sale worked for me too..... and then I trimmed my hose and lost most of what I gained. :)The good is that once started it zips really well and I got around my house with ease. The only thing I might think about is that if it were an extended reach I wouldn't have a sore lower back so.... I wouldn't want to use this all day but for my little city property it is fine. It has also taught me that I don't want to be without a hedger. It made my life easier already.The bad. I don't enjoy starting it and it is far from easy like my other professional Stihl tools. It is awkward to pull and tricky to get everything right to kick the engine over. Fortunately I am persistent and have learned the tricks to starting it after practicing a few times unlike other reviewers stating the same issues and trashing the machine. I still don't enjoy starting it but I can now start it easily every time within a few pulls. After that this little guy is fun for small jobs. June 9, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing tool - HS45 I am a gardener, I have been working with the HS 45 every day, the order of 1.5 hours per day net. Very easy convenient and efficient. Would highly recommend! Quality and efficient tool May 9, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best hedge trimmers on the market It's great it's a Stihl! Works wonders no cord excellent power. Light very veristal. ThisTrimmer saves hours and hours over manual and even electric trimmers. Stihl has been my choice for other lawn products because their overall quality and this is no exception. If your looking for an excellent trimmed. You found them look no further May 6, 2016
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
