Rated 4 out of 5 by from Get buy for the money. This is a great product for money. Only thing we don't like is the gas tank is to small.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for small yards I have only used the trimmer twice, but it has met my expectations. After trimming three medium sized bushes, there was no noticeable battery drain as measured by the built-in meter. I really like the light weight - much less strain on my shoulders than with heavier models.I believe that it meets the specs for size of branch it will cut, but it did stall out when I tried to remove one year's growth on a mature laurel. So I will just trim at six month intervals.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Made my Hedge trimming faster and much easier! Very handy and convenient. Lightweight and very maneuverable. Great for hedges with smaller limbs. Battery run time and cutting power ok - but both could be a little better. Ran out of power about 15 minutes prior to being finished with front hedges.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good But Lacks Power I decided to try out an electric outdoor power tool. After a thorough review, I decided on the Stihl HSA45 hedge trimmer based on the solid reviews it was receiving. There are a lot of good points about the unit. It's well built, light weight, well-balanced, and has a decent battery life (about 45-50 minutes on a full charge). However, the plethora of pros is outweighed by one significant con...a substantial lack of power. At only 18V, I was not expecting much and only intended to use this for some light trimming. Unfortunately, it doesn't have the power to even do that. Often times, the unit wasn't cleaning cutting stems.of shrubs. I resembled a lawn mower blade that has insufficient power to turn the blade at a high enough speed to get a clean cut. As a result, I had to go over my shrubs with shears to make it look decent. For this reason, I can't recommend the product. I wish I could because everything else about the machine is excellent. If you are intent on going with an electric unit, I would advise looking at the next modesl up...the hsa56 or the 66.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent power & very light STIHL has done it again. 20% lighter than nearest competitor. With blade tip guard and auto-cutoff when fully charged (so that you can leave the unit plugged in the charger), hedge trimming is a breeze. Took an hour for charging and runs for more than an hour. 5 stars in all aspects.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love at first sight! I could not believe how light this hedge trimmer was when I first picked it up. It works beautifully. I cut 32 shrubs, including several hollies and one very large holly and the battery still hasn't quit. These aren't for bushes that are out of hand and need an overhaul, but for shrubs that are kept trimmed every couple of months or so. They are easier to use than my larger Stihl HS45 gas hedge trimmers, which can handle the larger, more aggressive tasks. These will be my new "go to" hedge trimmers because of their incredibly light weight and how beautifully and easily they cut. I would highly recommend this hedge trimmer. It has an internal lithium battery and a battery level meter as well as a removable key for safety from accidental engagement. The HSA 45 also has adequate length and reach at 20". Another great product from Stihl, the company that never, ever settles for second best. Stihl is #1 for a reason. They never compromise their standards of perfection.
