The Stihl HSA 86 is more efficient than its predecessor.
When the HSA 85 came onto the landscaping scene, it was a revelation. A fantastic seller for Stihl fans and still highly regarded as one of the best cordless hedge trimmers on the market. So how has the HSA 86 improved that of its previous model?
Well, you still get the super sharp double-sided blade for more content trimming, available in a 45 centimetre or 65-centimetre blade. Tooth spacing is at the 1.3-inch gap to help chop into those larger twigs; which the HSA86 certainly has the power to
Enjoy effortless control and functional design of this hedge trimmer.
It has a functional two-handed grip design to control the Stihl cordless hedge trimmer (suitable for both left and right-handers). To start the tool, activate both switches on the loop handle and rear handle together. Controlling the blades’ variable
speed is simplistic with the rear control, allowing for the distinct and clean cutting action.
Additionally, the loop handle grip helps effortlessly control the battery-operated HSA 86 with ease. Combine this with the trimmer’s lightness – just 3.3 kilograms without the blades – means it is less tiring to use over long periods.
Fortunately, the housing design is smooth and robust, so if you are deep in a hedge or thick shrubbery, your cordless trimmer won’t get caught in long, sharp branches.
For further safety, a tip protector comes as standard with the Stihl HSA 86 to make cutting more easygoing near obstacles such as walls, protecting the sharp blades from damage. A blade cover is ready to ensure safe storage and transport.
Work for longer with faster charging and better run times.
Why not increase your run time with the following batteries:
- AP 200: Run time up to 144 mins
- AP 300: Run time up to 180 mins
We recommend the AL 300 quick charger with any of the batteries available, as this will decrease the charge times from 250 minutes to just 75 minutes for the AP 300.
With the Stihl HSA 86, you will be pleasantly surprised by the long run times compared to previous models.
