The STIHL HSA 26 Small Battery hand-held Hedge Trimmer & Grass Trimmer is an easy to use and affordable tool for trimming and maintaining your garden.

With this tool you receive two attachments that can be used for different jobs, a grass-trimming blade for garden edges, and a hedge trimming blade for maintaining small hedges, shrubs and topiaries. The blades are quick and easy to swap over. You can even purchase a Telescopic Shaft Handle so you can stand while grass trimming without straining your back.

The HSA 26 comes with a domestic 2-year warranty and you'll have access to ongoing service and support from your local STIHL SHOP. 

The Interchangeable AS 2 Lithium-Ion Battery offers up to 80 minutes run time with the Grass Blade and 120 minutes run time with the Hedge Trimmer Blade.

The same battery and charger is used in the STIHL GTA 26 Garden Pruner and STIHL SEA 20 Hand-held Vacuum Cleaner. These tools can be bought individually or as a Kit with the battery and charger.

Q: Who is this tool for?

A: This tool is so easy to use - it is for anyone who wants to trim and shape small hedges, shrubs and topiary or to tidy the edges of the lawn or around garden beds.

Q: What sized branches can I cut?

A: You can cut branches up to 8mm in diameter when using the Scrub Cutting attachment that comes included.

Q: How do I change the blade attachments?

A: Remove the battery first, then squeeze the orange clips on both sides of the cutting attachment to release it. To attach a different blade, insert the metal tabs on the blade into the slots on the shrub shears and press it firmly into place until you hear a click.

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. You can sharpen the blades yourself using a STIHL Flat File at a 30 degree angle.

Q: What should I use the different attachments for?

A: The shrub cutter is the longer blade and can be used for trimming topiary and small hedges. The grass trimming blade is perfect for edging around smaller lawns, decks and flower beds.

Q: Does this product come with a warranty?

A: Yes - The HSA 26 comes with a 2-year domestic warranty.

Q: What should I wear when using this tool?

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

Q: Can I get a new battery for the HSA 26?

A: Yes - We sell the STIHL AS 2 Battery online or at your local STIHL SHOP.

Q: Can I get a new charger for the HSA 26?

A: Yes - We sell the STIHL AL 1 Charger online or at your local STIHL SHOP.

Q: How can I keep the blades clean?

A: A blade that is not clean is not efficient. As a hedge is trimmed, sap builds up on the blades, setting hard like glue. Use the dual action STIHL Super Clean to remove resin and dirt and provide lubrication and corrosion protection.


Looking after your Small Hedge Trimmer & Grass Trimmer

Clean your tool of any grass clippings or debris and use STIHL Super Clean to remove resin and dirt. Keeping the blades sharp will also give you a better result.

Using the Telescopic Shaft

The height-adjustable Shaft Handle is very easy to use, and lets you stand while grass trimming so you don't need to bend down.(sold separately)

Staying safe

This tool comes with a convenient trigger lock that when engaged will not allow the blades to move. It is also a good idea to remove the battery when not in use.
