Professional hedge trimmer

With its powerful STIHL 2-MIX engine and easy operation, the STIHL HS 56 petrol-driven hedge trimmer is ideal for horticultural and landscaping work. The special blade geometry and the double-sided cutting blade enable you to achieve an optimal cut horizontally, vertically and in corners. The STIHL HS 56 makes it easy for you to efficiently carry out hedge and shrub maintenance tasks. The work is also simplified by the tool’s single-lever operation, which combines all essential functions in one lever.

The STIHL anti-vibration system absorbs engine vibrations to protect your muscles and joints when working for longer periods. The tool-free fuel cap also helps you work efficiently, by letting you quickly fill up with fuel and get straight back to work. The suspension eyelet in the handle allows the hedge trimmer to be hung on the wall to save space.
