Choosing a Hedgetrimmer

Need help choosing a hedgetrimmer? When you’re at work, and the job needs doing, the last thing you want is to be messing around with a tool that isn’t quite doing what it’s supposed to. A hedgetrimmer that isn’t fit for purpose will mean you’re going to spend more time picking sticks and clumps of leaves out of the blades than you are getting your work completed. This isn’t acceptable when time is money, and there’s work to be done. While many in Stihl’s range are designed for the casual or domestic user, they also provide great options for any seasoned arborist.

The Stihl HS 87 R 30″

The Stihl HS 87 R 30″ is a professional hedgetrimmer designed with performance and comfort in mind. When you’re on the job, the last thing you want to be doing is fighting with your equipment. The HS 87 R 30″ is the best in class for reliability and efficiency. Designed to tackle thick growth, it uses large teeth and a lower blade to cut through even tough hedges and thick woody sections. This makes a huge difference when you’re working with a piece of equipment for hours on end.

The Stihl HS 87 T 30″ is the slightly lower cost option for those on a tighter budget. It has all of the power of the 87 R 30″, but it uses materials in its build which shave .6 pounds off its total weight. It also has a stroke rate of 5 compared with the 87 R’s 3.1/min.

Choosing a Hedgetrimmer for Tall Hedges

Stihl’s HL 92 KC-E is a long-reach hedgetrimmer with a 20″ blade. It’s well-balanced to help reduce that ache that we all come to anticipate when we’re doing any reaching work for long periods. If you’re in an area where noise levels are a concern, this model also has an “ECOSPEED” setting to take the volume down significantly. It also has a 145-degree cutter bar which is adjustable for different working angles.
