The double-edged, diamond ground blades deliver a smart finish on the bushes and hedges in your garden, and the droplet shape on the blade guides twigs and branches into the blades for an even cut.

Quiet technology
The STIHL cordless tools are so quiet you don’t even need to wear ear protection.

Neutral battery position
The battery can be inserted into the tool in 2 stages. In the first neutral position, the battery is secured in the tool but does not connect with the contacts, allowing for safe transport. In the second operating position, the battery is completely inserted allowing for full operation of the tool.

Blade tip protector
The tip protector comes fitted as standard and makes cutting near the ground or along walls easier, whilst helping to protect the cutters from damage.

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.

Hanging eye
The hedge trimmers can be conveniently hung up on the wall with the hanging eye.
