Product Description

The HS 45 is a compact petrol hedge trimmer, ideal for light, domestic trimming jobs around your garden.

It runs on a STIHL 2-Mix engine, which combines a lightweight construction with impressive acceleration, low emissions, and reduced fuel consumption. This allows it to easily cut through thicker branches while remaining economical and friendlier to the environment.

Top Tips

Using the HS 45

You will get a straighter cut on your hedges if you move the hedge trimmer in an upwards motion when trimming.

Cleaning your HS 45

When you have finished using the hedge trimmer, stop the machine, then spray a little resin solvent, like STIHL Superclean, onto the blades to remove sap or resin, protect them from corrosion and stop them getting stuck together.

Storing your HS 45

Store your HS 45 in a clean and dry area and keep out of the reach of children at all times. Don't leave your machine with unused fuel in it for long periods of time.

Check for wildlife

Don’t forget to check your work area for wildlife before starting to use your tool. In particular, you should check for nesting birds before trimming hedges, as well as checking for other small animals such as hedgehogs before trimming long grass.
