Professional hedge trimmer with 2-Mix engine technology. Boasting a double sided cutting blade designed to cut and shape the finest formal hedges. Equally suited for vertical and horizontal cutting, the multi position handle allows for a more comfortable approach to hedge trimming. The reliable, durable blades and gearbox are perfectly matched to produce faster cutting speeds for the most demanding operators. With a reduction in weight and increased efficiency, these machines will make light work of any hedges.
Anti-vibration system - Intense vibration at the handles of power tools can lead to long-term effects on blood vessels in the hands and arms. STIHL has therefore developed an effective anti-vibration system whereby the oscillations from the machine's engine are dampened which significantly reduces vibrations at the handles.
STIHL 2-MIX-Engine - The STIHL 2-mix engine specially designed for the new generation of hedge trimmer combines low consumption and emissions with low weight and excellent acceleration. There are also always sufficient power reserves for cutting thicker shrubs.
STIHL ErgoStart (E) - A genuine advance in easy starting. STIHL ErgoStart (E) cuts the effort required to start the tool by half, while the starter cord can be pulled at just one third of the normal force. All it takes is 2 fingers and a gentle pull action.
Cutting variation (R) - The R variations of the STIHL HS 81 and STIHL HS 86 are designed specifically for large volume cutting. They feature a cutting blade with wide tooth spacing and longer tooth height. The gearing allows a high cutting power at a medium stroke rate. The R variations provide the possibility of cutting thicker branches and completing clearing work faster.
Single-sided cutting blade - The cutting blade is ground on one side. The special blade geometry ensures high cutting performance.
Electronic ignition module - This ensures reliable starting and trouble-free running. The ignition system is fully encapsulated and thus protected from damp and dirt.
Manual fuel pump (Purger) - A small fuel pump delivers fuel to the carburettor at the touch of a button. This reduces the number of starting pulls required following extended breaks in operations.
Long-life air filter system - Ensures longer cleaning intervals and better protection of the engine.
Tool free filler cap - Patented special filler caps for fuel and oil. These filler caps can be opened and closed again quickly and easily, without tools.
