Tips#1Using the HSA 86
You will get a straighter cut on your hedges, if you move the hedge trimmer in an upwards motion when trimming. The HSA 86 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 86
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 86 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 86
Store your HSA 86 in a clean and dry area and keep out of the reach of children at all times. The HSA 86 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.
