The Stihl HS45 is a great product at at a very reasonable price. It’s 18” blades are perfect for trimming hard to reach hedges, bushes and shrubs around the garden.
The STIHL HS45 hedge trimmer comes fitted with a manual fuel pump (purger). This small pump sends fuel to the carburettor at the touch of a button to help reduce the amount of pulls needed to start the engine, especially after extended breaks and significant time between uses. The STIHL elastostart system helps to reduce the shock caused by the compression in the engine upon start-up. The shock is guided away from your joints and muscles and towards the spring or rubber element in the starter handle. The electric ignition module in the HS45 ensures that the hedge trimmer starts and runs reliably. The ignition system is fully encapsulated to protect it from damp and dirt.
There are multiple options for the blade size and type for the HS45. It comes with either a 24” or 18” blade. The smaller blade is more easy to manoeuvre but the longer blade can trim more at once and get to harder to reach areas. The hedge trimmer also has the option of either a single ground, or dual ground blade system. The single ground option ensures high cutting performance and the dual ground system provides a clean cut and is ideal for cutting stronger, thicker branches.
Prolonged use of power tools can lead to issues with the blood vessels in your hands and arms due to the sheer amount of vibration that goes along with them. That’s why STIHL have fitted the HS45 with an anti vibration system that reduces the amount of movement in the handles of the hedge trimmer. This system is better for your long-term well being as well as making the machine more comfortable to use, especially for prolonged periods of time.
The STIHL HS45 hedge trimmer also comes with a long life air filter system installed. The systems means that you can have longer intervals between cleaning and a more protective and reliable engine.
