STIHL has added a new cordless hedge trimmer to its popular AP System range, offering landscaping professionals excellent cutting performance, a rotating handle and improved user comfort.
Replacing both the HSA 66 and HSA 86 models, the new HSA 100 boasts 60cm double-sided, double-edged cutting blades with a widened 34mm tooth spacing, making the tool ideal for landscapers working on long, tall hedges with thicker branches.
Alongside the impressive performance, the HSA 100 also offers high levels of operator comfort. The new hedge trimmer is comfortable to hold, balanced in operation and features a rotating rear handle that locks into three positions across a 1800 range, helping to reduce wrist strain when working for long periods of time. Furthermore, the trigger is located on the inside of the front loop handle for increased comfort in all positions.
Additional operator comfort features include quiet operation, meaning the hedge trimmer can be used without ear defenders, as well as an improved anti-vibration system that offers significantly lower vibration compared to the HSA 86.
To combat potential jamming of the blades, especially when working on thick material, the HSA 100 features an innovative anti-blocking system that reverses the motors rotational direction to unblock the blades, minimising product downtime and enhancing the efficiency of the tool.
The HSA 100 is powered by STIHL's AP battery system, offering up to 150 minutes run time on a single charge when used with the recommended AP 200 battery.
