We have an extensive range of hedge trimmers with varying power levels and cutter bar lengths and you can be confident that the tool you choose will handle whatever type of hedge you need it to. For beautifully shaped hedges and bushes, you need an assistant you can rely on. STIHL hedge trimmers have carefully designed features, easy handling and outstanding performance for looking after your hedges – for horizontal or vertical cutting, as well as all other tasks.
If you want a beautifully dense hedge, you need to give it a good trim at least once a year. Please bear in mind that hard cutting back of hedges must be performed during the winter months: when shrubs are not actively growing and to avoid disturbing nesting birds. Nonetheless, with a careful approach you can do light shaping and maintenance trimming all year round. Before you start to trim any hedgecheck whether there are any nests in amongst the foliage – If you find any, simply postpone the hedge maintenance until a later date.
When it comes to cutting particularly wide or long bushes and hedges, a STIHL long-reach hedge trimmer is the tool you need. The telescopic handle gives you the extra reach you need, while the adjustable cutter bar means that you can trim at the perfect angle. This means that you can adapt the tool to the task at hand, whether working in the garden or being used for landscape maintenance.
Each STIHL drive system has its own advantages; the choice comes down to how you want to use your tool. Before you buy, first take a close look at your specific needs to be sure which practical helper is particularly suitable for your purposes. STIHL hedge trimmers are available in a choice of three different drive systems. Our petrol-powered tools provide the performance professionals need for trimming long, dense hedges. Furthermore, a powerful petrol-driven hedge trimmer or petrol-driven long-reach hedge trimmer is easy and comfortable to handle in any situation, due to the multi-function handle as well as the lightweight motor and drive units.
Our cordless hedge trimmers and battery-powered long-reach hedge trimmers are particularly quiet and easy to operate, while offering powerful cutting performance. Their low noise level makes them ideal for work around your home or in areas where noise needs to be kept to a minimum, such as residential areas, hospitals, playgrounds, sports facilities and parks.

STIHL’s range of accessories for hedge trimmers and long-reach hedge trimmers are designed to help you get the best out of your tool. You might want to use a harness to take the weight out of the tool, a catcher plate to remove cuttings as you trim, or a tip protector to protect the end of the cutter bar.
