A compact but excellent performing cordless hedge trimmer

STIHL's HSA 56 excels at hedge trimming whether maintaining hedges or tackling tough shrubs. With a 45 cm / 28 inch cutting length, these double-sided cutting blades can cut both vertically and horizontally to provide the best finishing with the least amount of effort as possible. The blade also has a tip protector fitted as standard, which makes cutting near to the ground or along walls easier, while also helping to protect the tool from damage.

Comfortable, simple operation

Being a cordless tool, the HSA 56 is instantly easier to use than petrol or corded machines. You don't have to worry about complex starting procedures, petrol fumes, loud operating noise or tangled cables - not to mention expensive maintenance costs. Instead, you can use this tool without even the need for hearing protection as it is so wonderfully quiet. It has also been designed with safety in mind. The battery can be inserted in two stages, allowing one position where the battery is inserted but not touching the contacts (ideal for safe storage) and another where the machine can be fully operated.

The set contains everything you need to get trimming

The set is comprised of the shell, an AK 10 battery, and an AL 101 charger. The AK 10 battery will provide up to 40 minutes trimming time or cut up to 175m2 of hedge with one full charge. The AL 101 standard charger is the recommended charging unit, which will fully charge the AK 10 battery in 95 minutes, and has a useful LED indicator, a velcro strap for keeping the electrical cable tidy, and it can be wall mounted if desired.

A very impressive machine; I was really surprised by what it could tackle, easily up to normal hedge trimming and will cut green wood up to the thickness of a pencil easily.
