The HLA 56 is the perfect tool to cut taller hedges and shrubs in your garden.

Our lightweight and well-balanced cordless long-reach hedge trimmer has double-edged, droplet shaped blades to guide branches between the cutting teeth for a precise and even finish. The angle of the head can be changed from -45° to +90° so you can easily trim all of those hard to reach areas in the garden.

With a detachable shaft for easy transport and a bracket included for neat storage, the HLA 56 is a great tool to add to your collection. The HLA 56 is just one of the tools in our AK System – the interchangeable battery in the HLA 56 can also be used in other tools in this range including a grass trimmer, blower, lawn mowers and chainsaws. Carrying length: 115 cm.


Cannot be used with Kombi attachments, HTA 50 pole pruner, RTS harness or HTA 50 shaft extension.
