Innovative cutting system
The blade shape has been optimised to catch branches and hold them against the blade durig the cut and serves as an integrated blade guard.
Intermediate battery position in the device
The battery can be inserted into the device in 2 stages. In the first locking stage – the intermediate position – the battery is secured in the device but does not touch the contacts in the device. In the second locking stage – the operating position – the battery is completely inserted and touches the contacts in the device.
Soft grip with control lever
The soft grip with its control lever for switching on and off and control lever lock absorbs some of the vibrations and is extremely easy to grip.
Double sided cutting blades
STIHL hedge trimmers with double-sided cutting blades cut both vertically and horizontally.
Two handed design
The tool is easily started by activating both switches on the loop handle and the rear handle at the same time. The cutting speed is continuously variable using the rear control, for a fine and precise cut. The two handed design is suitable for both left and right-handed users.
The hedge trimmers can also be conveniently hung up on the wall with the practical hanging eye.
Blade tip protector
The tip protector comes as standard and makes cutting near the ground or along walls easier while protecting the special cutters from damage.
