Your boundaries in need of a haircut? It’s probably time to invest in a trimmer.

The cordless Stihl HSA 56 is powered by a  35 V lithium-ion battery from the compact cordless range which is extremely efficient.

This battery powered engine not only has no exhaust emissions making it environmentally friendly, but it also has lower levels of sound compared to other hedge trimmer models.

The engine serves as a counterweight and makes the machine exceptionally well-balanced and comfortable to use. Especially when cutting taller hedges, without having to use a ladder or cherry picker.


The Stihl HSA 56 is very simple to start at the touch of a button. This hedge trimmer is fitted with an on/off switch with trigger interlock to help avoid user fatigue from keeping the throttle pushed in place whilst in use.

Built with the outdoors in mind, the robust Stihl HSA 56 has a sturdy build and rear-impact buffer to protect the engine from wear and damage.
