Trimming your hedges doesn't need to be hard work, try our battery operated HSA 56 Hedge Trimmer. Battery tools provide maximum freedom to work with no cables or fuel to mix. This tool is very lightweight, reducing the normal arm ache that comes with hedgetrimming.

The 45 cm double-edged, diamond ground blades deliver a neat finish on the bushes and hedges in your garden, and the droplet shape on the blade guides twigs and branches into the blades for an even cut.

The high quality STIHL batteries can be charged approx 1,200 times and offer consistent performance with no reduction in power as the battery depletes during your job.

The HSA 56 is part of our AK Cordless Range of tools with interchangeable batteries - the battery in this tool can also be used in other tools in this range including a Line Trimmer, Blower, Lawnmowers, and Chainsaws.

Run time on recommended AK 10 battery: Up to 50 minutes

Run time on upgrade AK 20 battery: Up to 100 minutes

Run time on AK 30 battery: Up to 120 minutes

Run times quoted are based on ideal operating conditions. Times will vary depending on load and conditions.

  • Quiet
    STIHL Cordless/Battery tools are so quiet you don't even need to wear ear protection.
  • Handle Grip
    Handle Grip
    The HSA 56 can only be operated with two hands so you are always in control.
  • Neutral Battery Position
    Neutral Battery Position
    There are two positions for the battery in the tool - in the first neutral position, the battery is secured in the machine but is not connected to the contacts. This means you can carry the tool around without accidentally starting it. In the second position, the battery is fully pushed in and you can easily start the tool.
  • Blade Tip Protector
    Blade Tip Protector
    The tip protector helps protect the blades from damage when cutting near the ground or along walls.
  • Cutting Blades with Cut Protection
    Cutting Blades with Cut Protection
    The blades on this tool are diamond ground so you can achieve a neat finish on your hedges. They also have integrated cut protection which overlaps the working blades, this reduces the risk of the blades making contact with your leg.
  • Hanging Loop
    Hanging Loop
    Use the loop to hang your Hedgetrimmer securley on the wall.

Q: How long does the battery last?

A: The recommend AK 10 Battery will last up to 50 minutes or enough time to trim up to 175m² of hedges. This does depend on what is being cut and how the tool is being used.

Q: How long des it take to charge?

A: To fully charge an AK 10 Battery it takes 95 minutes, or to charge it up to 80%, it takes 70 minutes with the AL 101 charger.

Q: Are the Batteries Interchangeable?

A: Yes, all of the tools in the COMPACT Cordless System use the same style of battery. There are three different batteries in the range, which all have different capacities. For the HSA 56, we recommend the smaller capacity AK 10 battery as it is lighter and means the tool is perfectly balanced, but you can also use the AK 20 and AK 30 battery in this tool.

Q: Will the blades need sharpening?

A: Keeping the blades sharp will give a neat cut on whatever you are trimming. If you notice that the blades are getting jammed easily or the machine is struggling, the blades may need sharpening. Our STIHL SHOP retailers can do this for you.

Q: What should I wear when using this tool?

A: We recommend that you wear snug-fitting clothes, eye protection, gloves and sturdy boots or shoes, and tie back long hair.

Q: Does this tool come with a Warranty?

A: Yes, the HSA 56 come with a STIHL domestic 2 year warranty.
