Super-lightweight (4.7kg), yet powerful and solidly built, this top-quality German-engineered hedgetrimmer from Stihl is just as at home in the hands of the exacting home-gardener as it is in those of the landscape professional.
Suitable for use on smaller hedges, the Stihl HS45-18 features a compact 45cm blade that’s double-sided for increased productivity.
The blade is precision-ground, so it will stay sharp for longer, and will deliver a clean cut with no unattractive bruising to the hedge.
Power is supplied by a very high-performance 27.2cc (1hp) two-stroke engine that employs Stihl’s ElastoStart technology for almost effortless pull-starts.
The electronic ignition-module ensures dependable starting and has been fully enclosed in order to protect it from dirt and damp.
The STIHL HS45-18 Petrol Hedgetrimmer features Stihl’s highly effective vibration-damping system, whereby engine and blade oscillations are absorbed by shock-absorbing mounts, in turn sparing the user’s hands and arms for undue strain.

Great Product - Buy Without HesitationReview by Tim / (Posted on 05/04/2016)I bought one of these around 8 years ago to replace cheaper DIY shop branded product that was constantly breaking down. At the start, despite this being the entry level model, it represented a big cost to me and I wasn't sure whether I should buy it or not.
All I can say is, how glad I am that I went ahead and purchased it. It has earned its cost back x 10. Hugely reliable, needed very little maintenance. I put a bit of grease in the gear box every 6 months (very easy to do), I make sure that I use genuine stihl 2 stroke oil, mixed in mixing bottle with unleaded to ensure right ratio and I wipe the blade down and de gum/sap the blade after use.
It's very easy to use,with little vibration compared to some, gives a nice cut, save lots of time. If you are a light commercial gardener like me it also presents the right professional image and is part of a good starting set up. It's built robustly and wont fall apart after the first knock. If you are just thinking about using for the domestic setting, equally you wont be disappointed.
I am a qualified experienced gardener working from Surrey, UK www.dudleygardens.uk I am not connected with MowDirect in anyway.
