Double-Sided Cutting Blades
STIHL hedge trimmers with double-sided cutting blades cut both directions.
Equipment with this feature is easily started by activating switches on the loop handle and the rear handle at the same time. The cutting speed can be adjusted using the rear trigger control, allowing for a fine and precise cut. The two-handed design is suitable for both left and right-handed users.
Ergonomic Loop Handle
The ergonomic loop handle is ideal for making cuts in any direction.
The tip protector makes cutting near the ground or along walls easier while protecting the trimmer’s cutters from damage.
The engine housing has smooth surfaces and round contours that help to keep it from getting caught on branches during use. The design also makes cleaning easy.
The blade cover helps protect the cutting blade during storage and transport.
Vertical Hanging Slot
The built-in hanging slot allows for easy storage when not in use.
