Stihl HLA 85  Telescopic Cordless Hedge Trimmer



The Stihl HLA 85 hedge trimmer is available from Masseys in Swadlincote. The hedge trimmer is part of the Stihl PRO cordless power system and comes with a year commercial warranty. It has become our best selling long reach hedge trimmer at Masseys and is used by both domestic and professional customers.

Stihl recommend the HLA85 with the AP200 battery and the AL300 charger. You will get up to 144 minutes run time per battery charge. If you would like to spec the machine differently then this isn’t a problem as we stock the full range of batteries and chargers.

The Stihl HLA 85 telescopic hedge cutter is a versatile machine and features an adjustable hedge trimmer blade which makes it suitable for a number of tasks on tall or deep hedges. You can easily angle the head for cutting the tops of the hedges because of the head’s design and a great tip is to angle the head slightly back towards you to give you a nice sweeping action when cutting the sides. The overall length of the machine can be extended to 3.3m which gives the operator a safer approach to taller hedges. The hedge trimmer is lightweight thanks to the materials used and has very low vibrations making it suitable for professionals who would use the machine for extended periods. The brush less EC motor keeps maintenance to a minimum while increasing the tool’s running time. Batteries and chargers are sold separately. Click to see all of our Stihl hedge trimmers.

The hedge trimmer can be purchased on its own or as part of a kit with the battery and charger. If you already have some of the Stihl Pro range then the batteries will fit the HLA 85 and you won’t need to buy the batteries and charger. Alternatively, if you need to buy the machine with the other bits, then those batteries and chargers will fit a variety of other products from the Stihl range,

A warranty repair is when the machine has failed because of improper material or workmanship which has been under normal use and maintenance.
