The HSA 66 is a quiet and lightweight cordless hedge trimmer with droplet shaped blades to guide branches in between the teeth and cut them efficiently.
This clever design also delivers in-built cut protection as the droplet shapes overlap the sharp cutting teeth to reduce the risk of them coming into contact with you. The screw-on tip protector also protects the blades when trimming close to the floor or walls.
The HSA 66 is powerful but easy to use - just push the battery in and you're ready to go, without even needing to wear ear defenders.
The HSA 66 is part of our AP System range of tools and uses AP interchangeable batteries - it is not compatible with the AK batteries in the AK System.
- Run time on AP 200 battery: Up to 144 minutes
- Run time on AP 300 battery: Up to 180 minutes
FeaturesBlade tip protector
The HSA 66 is fitted with a tip protector to protect the blades from any damage when cutting near to the ground or along walls.
The HSA 66 is easy to store as well as being easy to use - simply hang it in the garage or shed using the eyelet built in to the handle.
Innovative blade design
The droplet shaped blades on the HSA 66 serve two purposes - first, they guide branches between the teeth and hold them there whilst trimming for a precise finish on your hedge. Secondly, the droplet shapes give you integrated cut protection as they overlaps the working blades, to reduce the risk of the blades making contact with your leg.

Tips#1Using the HSA 66
You will get a straighter cut on your hedges, if you move the hedge trimmer in an upwards motion when trimming. The HSA 66 has a handy tip protector at the end of the blades, so you can trim closer to the ground without damaging the blades.
#2Cleaning your HSA 66
When you have finished using the hedge trimmer, remove the battery and wipe clean with a soft, damp cloth. We also suggest spraying a little resin solvent, like STIHL Superclean, onto the blades to remove sap or resin, protect them from corrosion and stop them getting stuck together.
#3Looking after your battery
Don't use a damp or wet battery in your HSA 66 and avoid using them in extreme temperatures (very hot or very cold). Find out more about looking after your battery on our blog.
#4Storing your HSA 66
Store your HSA 66 in a clean and dry area and keep out of the reach of children at all times. The HSA 66 has a handy eyelet on the handle so it can be hung on a hook in the shed.
#5Check for wildlife
Don’t forget to check your work area for wildlife before starting to use your tool. In particular, you should check for nesting birds before trimming hedges, as well as checking for other small animals such as hedgehogs before trimming long grass.
