Characterised by its expansive 70cm blades, unusually long for an electric hedgetrimmer, the premium-grade, German-built STIHL HSE-71/28 will come into its own in the hands of those maintaining particularly wide or long hedges.
Power from its high-powered 600w motor is sent to the blades via two-stage reduction gearing that works to maximise torque, in turn ensuring you’ll be able to tackle the thickest growth with absolute confidence (the cutting-capacity is 36mm).
The blades themselves are laser-cut from hardened-steel, so they won’t flex or warp; and they’ve been ground using diamond discs so as to ensure an ultra-sharp and long-lasting cutting-edge.
The STIHL HSE-71/28 Electric Hedgetrimmer features a five-stage ‘twist’ handle that can be rotated through 180°, so you can achieve the safest and most comfortable trimming-angle.
Handling is further enhanced by the machine’s considered ergonomics and low-weight construction (only 4.4kg).
Other quality features include cable-strain relief for piece-of-mind when working at the limit of the 10m mains lead; and triple safety-switching, which prevents accidental start-up and gives you more choice as to where to place your hands on the machine.
