With its more expansive 60cm blades, the German-manufactured STIHL HS45-24 is the sensible choice for those looking-after a larger hedge.
Offering the sort of advanced ergonomics for which Stihl have become renowned, it employs comprehensive vibration-damping measures that work to prevent the blood-vessel damage that people who regularly use handheld power-tools sometimes experience.
Its ultra-lightweight build (5kg) and well-balanced design contribute further to user-comfort.
The STIHL HS45-24 Petrol Hedgetrimmer is driven by a high-powered 27.2cc engine that features an electronic ignition module which has been fully enclosed so as prevent moisture and grime getting into it.
ElastoStart lessens the force you need to apply to the starter-rope and reduces the ‘kick’ upon ignition.
The high-quality steel blades on this model are double-sided for fast and efficient trimming; and they have a generous 30mm tooth-pitch that facilitates the cutting-back of heavier growth.

Nothing but TroubleReview by Matthew / (Posted on 25/08/2017)I have owned one of these for three years and it has been an absolute pain. Pretty much anything that can go wrong has done so. Predictably this machine is designed so that repair can only be carried out by an overpriced Stihl mechanic.
Three years ago I bought a Stihl chainsaw, brushcutter and hedge trimmer. The latter was the last one still working until it finally died yesterday. It might well be repairable but I am fed up with it letting me down when I need it most.
My replacement brushcutter was an excellent Einhell product and it is them I will look to for a replacement.
