The Stihl HLA 56 Cordless Long-Reach Hedge Trimmer is a high performing battery operated trimmer.

The cordless HLA 56 will give you a neat and uniform finish on large hedges and shrubs.

Double-sided blades and droplet shaped cutting teeth with large tooth spacing help to draw in branches and cut without fraying.

Easy to use, with a loop handle, this lightweight tool can be simply adjusted at the push of a button from -45° to + 90° (without the need for any additional tools). These angles are particularly useful for cutting the top and sides of hedges.

For added peace of mind, the locking lever is self-resetting and prevents unintentional switching on of the device. The ERGO and shift lever both need to be pressed in order to work continuously for safety. And a tip protector makes sure you won’t damage the blade, walls or fences.

The shaft of the HLA 56 is detachable for easy transport and storage and you’ll be able to use the wall mounted storage bracket to save space in a shed or garage.

This hedge trimmer shell is part of the AK System range of cordless tools which requires a AK 20 lithium-ion battery and AL 101 battery charger. The battery has an integrated charge level indicator (LED), so you’ll be able to see clearly when it needs charging.
