Handy and lightweight electric hedge trimmer

With the lightweight and handy STIHL HSE 52 electric hedge trimmer, you can efficiently trim and cut smaller hedges, box bushes and shrubs in the yard and near your home. The STIHL HSE 52 electric hedge trimmer weighs just 3.1 kg, allowing private users to work quietly and with minimal vibration. The single-sided cutting blades will help you to cut twigs and slender branches with ease. Two-handed control supports convenient and easy operation of the STIHL HSE 52, allowing simple starting through simultaneous actuation of the switches on the loop handle and the rear handle. Whether you are right-handed or left-handed, you can operate your hedge trimmer with ease. The screw-on tip protector protects the cutting blades when working close to the ground and close to walls or other obstacles.

A small hand guard and integrated cut protection help to ensure your safety when working with the hedge trimmer. The mechanical blade brake also makes the power tool extra-safe to use by reliably stopping the cutting blade in less than one second after the STIHL HSE 52 is switched off. If you pull the cable of the hedge trimmer while working, the integrated cable strain relief feature ensures that the plug is not pulled from the socket.

The optional STIHL catcher plate allows you to collect cuttings directly on the blade of your STIHL HSE 52 as you cut.

The STIHL HSE 52 electric hedge trimmer has a bar length of 50 cm.
