If you’re seeking a powerful but lightweight electric hedgetrimmer that’s a genuinely viable alternative to a petrol-driven machine, then you need look no further than the STIHL HSE-71/24.
It’s been fitted with a very high-performance 600w motor which powers a pair of ultra-sharp laser-cut and diamond-ground blades that offer exceptional cutting-capability and impressive durability. The blades measure an extensive 60cm and have a very generous 36mm tooth-gap, so a fast work rate in large, woody hedges is guaranteed.
So as to ensure you’ll be able to achieve the perfect working-angle for the task in hand, STIHL have equipped this model with a rotary handle that can be set to any of five preset stages through 180°.
Its ideally balanced design works with its low-weight build (4.1kg) and well thought-out ergonomics to maximise control and manoeuvrability; while the provision of cable-strain relief means you won’t have to worry about unintentionally disconnecting the power-lead.
The STIHL HSE-71/24 Electric Hedgetrimmer also features triple-safety switching, which provides the same safety-enhancing benefits as two-handed operation, but gives an increased working range as there’s a choice of hand positions.
