New lightweight model with Easy2Start™

The STIHL HS 46 C-E gas-driven hedge trimmer impresses discerning hobby yarders with its easy operation when maintaining hedges and ornamental trees.

STIHL ErgoStart makes starting much easier. You therefore have to use significantly less strength for the starting process, as a gentle, even pull on the starter cord is sufficient to start the engine. Thanks to the STIHL 2-MIX engine, the HS 46 C-E hedge trimmer offers sufficient power. Thanks to the special blade geometry of the double-sided, single-sided cutting blade, you can efficiently cut your hedges horizontally, vertically and around corners.

The HS 46 C-E gas hedge trimmer is equipped with a single-lever control for convenient operation. This allows you to control all functions with just one lever. The STIHL anti-vibration system minimises engine vibrations, protecting your muscles and joints. It is also easy to top up fuels and lubricants thanks to the tool-free fuel cap. The carrying ring on the handle makes it easy to store your hedge trimmer after yarding to save space.

By following our tips for regular hedge trimmer maintenance  on your STIHL HS 46 C-E, you can minimise premature wear.

The STIHL HS 46 C-E has a bar length of 55 cm.
