SPECIAL OFFER:  A free STIHL HP 2-Stroke Engine Oil - 100 ml is available when you order 1 item or more of selected products.

A professional 30 inch hedge trimmer from STIHL.

As well as excellent cutting performance and impressive power, the HS 82 RC-E has many useful features to improve operator comfort. This is the 'R' version, which comes with a cutting blade with extra-wide tooth spacing and longer tooth height, specifically for large volume cutting.

Efficient, powerful operation

The HS 82 RC-E uses STIHL's 2-MIX engine, specially designed for the new generation of hedge trimmers. It combines low fuel consumption and emissions with low weight and superb acceleration. It provides you with the power to cut even thicker shrubs. In addition, a long-life air filter system helps to protect the engine, and ensures longer cleaning intervals. Tool-free filler caps for fuel and oil can be opened and closed quickly and easily, proving that this machine is not only powerful, but well-thought-out as well.

Impressive cutting performance

As the 'R' model, this machine features a cutting blade with wide tooth spacing and longer tooth height. The gearing allows a particularly high cutting power at a medium stroke rate. Designed for large volume cutting, this machine offers the possibility of cutting thicker branches and completing clearing work faster. The cutting blade is double-sided and sharpened on both sides, excelling when cutting stronger, thicker branches.

Comfortable & easy to use

STIHL's ErgoStart system combined with an electronic ignition module and manual fuel pump result in a genuine advance in easy starting. The effort needed to start the tool is halved, with the force required to pull the starter cord just a third and fewer starting pulls necessary after extended breaks in operation. A single lever houses the choke, start gas, operating position and stop functions in one operating element, making the HS 82 RC-E superbly comfortable to operate. The handle can be rotated by 90 degrees to the left and right to achieve the best cutting position for you.

STIHL HS 82 RC-E 30 Inch Hedge Trimmer
Sunday, 11 October 2020  | 

So, this is a direct replacement for a Stihl HS81 30” hedge trimmer purchased in October 2013. These are used commercially and, to be honest, they’ve lasted very well, been a little problematic in the last six months so I thought I replace like with like. Very happy with the price, purchase and delivery. No problems fitting the steel tip protector. Added fuel, started on the third pull. Great! But, after three hours’ use and only three re-fills they have stopped working. Currently away for repair. I have seven other professional Stihl products and this is unbelievable. What’s worse is that, in the middle of hedge cutting season, I’ve no hedge cutters. Very disappointing.
