Designed and built in Germany to exacting standards, the STIHL HS87 R has been developed for the fast and efficient trimming and shaping of substantial hedges. Its top-quality Stihl 2-Mix engine powers a pair of lengthy 75cm single-sided blades with an unusually wide 38mm tooth-gap that ensures a clean cut in large-diameter growth; while its comprehensive vibration-damping measures and low-weight construction work to minimise operator-fatigue. From-cold starting is ultra-reliable, thanks to a manual fuel-pump. Weighs 5.5kg.
Lightweight, perfectly balanced and featuring a 180° adjustable rear-handle, the highly manoeuvrable Kawasaki-powered KTK-60X excels when it comes to the creation of intricately sculpted shapes. It’s equipped with a pair of mid-sized blades that have been laser-cut for durability and sharpness; and it utilises high-spec anti-vibration technology for long hours of low-effort hedgetrimming. Power is supplied by a high-performance 22.5cc engine from Kawasaki themselves. Weighs only 5.8kg.
