A new professional lightweight cordless long-reach hedge trimmer
The HLA 66 is STIHL's newest long-reach hedge trimmer from their AP battery system, suited to the professional user for easier trimming of taller hedges as well as side and top growth. Compared to its predecessor the HLA 65, the HLA 66 offers better balance for less fatigue during operation which is welcomed by commercial users. A battery and charger are required to use this machine, and should be purchased separately.
Packed full of features for a safe, comfortable, and professional performance
The total length of this hedge trimmer is 205 cm and includes a 50 cm / 20 inch double sided, double edged blade, making it ideal for reaching most tall and wide hedges. The blade has an adjustable working angle head from -45º to +70º which provides a better finish, and it can also be folded flat giving it a total length of 125 cm for simple transport and storage.
The HLA 66 features an energy-efficient brushless electric motor that's almost wear-free, meaning minimal maintenance. It also ensures the right power is outputted for the battery inserted into the machine, providing optimum power no matter what the battery charge level.
The loop handle and shaft have anti-slip protection for precise application, and the control handle is ergonomically designed with a self-resetting Ergo lever for both left and right hand users.
Part of STIHL's AP battery system
The AP Series is a versatile battery system utilising one compatible battery for a fleet of machines. The shell consists of the outer body only and does not include any batteries or a charger, so these will need to be purchased separately unless they are already owned.
The recommended battery for the HLA 66 is the AP 300 giving up to 180 minutes of working time before it'll need to be charged again.
Optional accessories for a better cutting experience
To prolong the life of the blade and keep it in good condition we recommend using a resin solvent which dissolves rust and sap whilst also providing protection against corrosion. The optional battery protection foot keeps the battery off the ground during downtime, and also doubles up as an additional handle for short-term shaft extension. A catcher plate can also be purchased for easier clean-up when trimming side and top growth.
