The HSA 45 cordless hedge trimmer is very lightweight so it is easy to manoeuvre and is perfect for trimming annual growth on the hedges in your garden.
With an integrated Lithium-Ion battery, the HSA 45 couldn't be easier to use - simply pop in the activation key, switch on and go. It is also really quiet so you can get on with your garden jobs without disturbing the peace! The precision-ground blades deliver a neat cut, so you can get your shrubs in order in no time.
- Run time on built-in battery: up to 40 minutes
STIHL Cordless System tools are so quiet you don't even need to wear ear protection.
Compact and ergonomic
The integrated battery cells mean that the tool is optimally balanced. The HSA is easy to handle. Its streamlined design creates plenty of room for manoeuvre.
The HSA 45 can only be operated with two hands so you are always in control. The soft-grip front handle can be operated from all sides so that you can work at exactly the right angle for your hedges.
Tip protector with hanging eye
The tip protector protects the tip of the blades from damage. It also features a hanging eyelet for easy storage in the garage or shed.
The blades on the HSA 45 are precision ground so you get a precise cut on your hedges.
The tool can only be used with the activation key. If the key is removed, the tool switches off to prevent it being started accidentally. The HSA 45 can then be safely stored and transported.
Charge level indicator
There are four LEDs on the side of the trimmer to show you how much charge you have left. Just press the button next to the LEDs and you will be able to quickly see the charge level.
The built-in battery in the HSA 45 is easily charged using the charger cable.

A: To fully charge the battery it takes 210 minutes, or to charge it up to 80%, it takes 145 minutes.
QWhat size garden will it maintain?
A: The HSA 45 is perfect for smaller gardens.
QWhat battery does it use?

QAre the batteries interchangeable?

QWhat size branches can I cut with the HSA 45?
A: You can cut branches up to 8mm in diameter.
QDoes the hedge trimmer come with a blade cover?
A: Yes, your hedge trimmer comes with a scabbard to cover the blades during transport or storage. On new machines, the scabbard will be quite tight so you may need to use some force to remove it for the first few times. Just hold the scabbard about half way down and pull it away from you so your hands or body cannot come into contact with the blades.
Tips#1Using the HSA 45
You will get a straighter cut on your hedges, if you move the hedge trimmer in an upwards motion when trimming. The HSA 45 has a handy tip protector at the end of the blades - this means you can trim closer to the ground without damaging the blades.
#2Cleaning your HSA 45
When you have finished using the HSA 45, remove the activation key. We 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.
#3Storing your HSA 45
We recommend that you store your HSA 45 hedge trimmer with around 40%-60% charge (2 green LEDs), ideally within a temperature range of 0 to 50 degrees centigrade. Store it in a clean and dry area and keep out of the reach of children at all times.
