Stihl HS45 Petrol Hedge Trimmer Review – ISPUZZLE


Trim with confidence with the Stihl HS45 Hedge Trimmer

If you really want to trim weeds, you’ll need a hedge trimmer that inspires confidence with clean, effortless cuts. It’s not much different from cutting and trimming someone’s hair with a clipper. This is a serious company and I would like a serious power tool for reliable results. Only when you are sure of the power and quality of the tool will you feel comfortable using it to achieve what you have in mind. The Stihl HS45 petrol hedge trimmer is one such tool.

For this Stihl gas-powered hedge trimmer review, the HS45 comes with a 24-inch blade. There are two options for the double-sided alternative sheet: 24 inches and 18 inches. In terms of overall performance, the 18-inch blade cuts with better control, but the 24-inch blade lets you cut more than once and reach harder-to-reach things. The engine is the ever-reliable Stihl 27.2cc petrol engine with an output of 0.75kW and 3,700 strokes per minute.

Normally, before using a gasoline powered hedge trimmer, you need to solve complicated starting problems. Not so much with the Stihl HS45. Press the fuel pump button to send just the right amount of fuel to the carburetor and you can start the engine immediately. Follow the manual for more information. It’s pretty simple, and it doesn’t shake much at first.

When you start using this hedge trimmer, you will notice the great balance of the tool, even if you change your grip on the front handle. It’s easy to keep the blade steady as it cuts clean and clean every time. The Stihl HS45 is equipped with vibration dampers in strategic places to reduce the impact on the hands and arms during work. Extra-long-life air filter is easily accessible and works long between cleanings.


  • Powerful and efficient hedge trimmer. 3,700 strokes per minute for super fast, clean cuts.
  • Ability to handle thicker bushes.
  • Lighter than its nearest competitors.
  • Equipped with front hand guard and blade guard.
  • Transparent and vertical fuel tank to easily check the fuel level.
  • Stihl’s excellent reputation.

the inconvenients:

  • As with all small gas-powered tools, a little practice getting them started goes a long way. Once you have it, you can start it every time.
  • The price is above average, but still affordable.
  • Despite the anti-vibration system, your hands will feel the effect after prolonged use. It is best to limit use to half a tank of gas at a time.
