Petrol hedge trimmers show their strengths in park and landscape maintenance and are also ideal for tackling jobs around the garden. These powerful petrol-driven machines with their practical features are rugged, lightweight and easy to use. They are ideal for working on dense, very long or tall hedges.
Pivoting multi-function control handle
The pivoting control handle provides the optimum handle position for every application, for easy, secure control.
Uncompromising lightweight construction
Compact engine and gear unit developed specially for lightweight hedge trimmers.
Cleverly devised blade geometry
The blade geometry and specially matched gears for trimming or pruning ensure top cutting performance.
Long-life air filter system
Extends cleaning intervals as well as reliably protecting the engine.
STIHL anti-vibration system
Precision-designed springs minimise the vibrations from the engine and thus reduce operator fatigue.
The R versions - Great for heavy pruning
The R versions of the STIHL HS 81 and STIHL HS 86 are uncompromisingly designed for pruning. Their blade geometry has wide tooth spacing and a big cutter height. The gearing delivers high cutting power. The R versions therefore make all large-scale pruning and clearing work quicker and easier.
The T versions - Perfect for trimming
The T versions of the new STIHL hedge trimmers are designed for perfect shaping and fine trimming of hedges and shrubs. The blade geometry with a smaller tooth spacing and shorter cutter height in conjunction with the gearing for a high stroke rate helps to make a neat job even of "filigree" work.
