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
Rated 5 out of 5 by Reliable, powerful and reliable. When it came time for a new hedge trimmer I researched several brands. After buying my Stihl, in my opinion I purchased the best. Just waiting for my edger to "expire" so I can get a Stihl. June 22, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Trimmer for the Money Have owned this trimmer for 3 or 4 seasons. It is all that, and then some. If you follow the directions, when she's cold, pump the primer blub a few times, put the choke on, and pull it till she sputters, then turn the choke off and pull again, she fires up every time. And for those of you who don't understand international signage, "I" is on, and "O" is off. The key here, is "O" is Off. That should make it easy to remember. When she's warm, there are no issues at all, fires right up. I have always used the Stihl brand, pre measured oil, for the fuel mixture, and this could have helped with trouble free operation. Don't know that for sure, but I've been well pleased with my Stihl HS45. The neighbors, cousins, sons, and brothers, who sometimes borrow her, really like her too. Buy yourself one, you will love it too. June 15, 2015
