Light introductory hedge trimmer for garden trimming

The STIHL HS 45 entry-level hedge trimmer is ideal for shrubs and the maintenance of chest-height hedges. Its lightweight design and easy handling allow yard owners to carry out maintenance work quickly and efficiently. Thanks to STIHL ElastoStart, the STIHL HS 45 can be started smoothly, as jerking is reduced. In addition, the manualfuel pump reduces the number of strokes required for start-up, thereby accelerating the starting process and making it easy for you to get going on your yarding work. The single-lever operation feature supports comfortable handling of the STIHL HS 45 gas hedge trimmer, as all the functions of the tool can be accessed from the control lever. The special cutter geometry of the double-sided cutting blades allows for precise cutting, both horizontally and vertically, and even in corners.

To protect your muscles and joints as you work, the STIHL anti-vibration system minimises engine vibrations in the STIHL HS 45 gas hedge trimmer. For compact storage, you can hang the hedge trimmer on a wall using the carrying ring integrated into the handle. To ensure that you can continue to enjoy your hedge trimmer for a long time to come, take a look at our tips for regular care and maintenance.
