A 600W long-reach hedge trimmer from STIHL.

This is the long-shafted HLE 71, which offers a large working range and is suitable for vertical cutting at a distance from the hedge, with a 50cm cutting length.

Adjustable, versatile performance 

The cutting tool can be adjusted gradually up to 125 degrees, as well as folded up parallel to the shaft and locked for easy transportation. Ground covering plants and shrubbery are able to be cut horizontally, as well as the vertical cutting facilitated by the large working range. The HLE 71 has a 50cm cutting length and an overall length of 2.54m, making it ideal for working on tall or broad hedges.

Comfortable, effortless control

The HLE 71 is a loop-handled tool, which provides freedom of movement and ease of operation even in cramped conditions. The unit also sports a soft-grip handle, to make working with the machine more comfortable and reduce the intensity of vibrations from the engine unit. STIHL's shoulder strap also helps with operator comfort, making work over long periods of time less tiring. With a rotating harness eyelet, the appliance can also be swung easily.

Great trimmers. Cut like a hot knife through butter. Good reach but they become a bit tiring after prolonged horizontal use. Quiet operation too compared to other trimmers I’ve used.

The quietest hedge trimmer I've ever used/heard anyone else using.

Loop handle is a really cheap, fiddly to attach assembly which is rubbish at this price point.
Should include an end of blade protector at this price point also.
Heavy with a shoulder strap that isn't padded at all - again not ok at all at this price point.

Versatile tool. Stihl is known for there robust quality build and this is no exception. The blade adjustment is a useful feature in tight areas. The extended reach makes it efficient for taller hedges but also puts additional strain on the arm muscles.

Well made, worked perfectly. Gets heavy with prolonged use even with strap. But no way round that easy to assemble. Long lead is great
