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.

Rolls Royce of Hedge TrimmersReview by Tim Bright / (Posted on 12/10/2013)Having had all the usual brand Hedge Trimmers that did not last the course, this is clearly a top quality product. Well constructed and easy to use, good features with the rotating handle and the ability to extend your reach using the additional safety switches located at the end of the handle. Just spent the day cutting my Leylandi hedge and the result is excellent, the neatest trim it has had for a long time thanks to the precision sharp blades. Runs fairly quiet as well with no adverse vibration in use.
