Stihl HSE 71 hedge trimmer review

Stihl HSE 71 hedge trimmer

We purchased the Stihl HSE 71 hedge trimmer to keep the hedgerow that shields us from the lane that passes our property neat and tidy. In addition to this, we have some hedgerows on the other side of the property that separate us from grazing field so we needed some powerful tools to help us keep them under control. The verdict from our review is in.

The most notable thing about the hedge trimmer is its build quality – it feels sturdy and strong and doesn’t weigh a huge amount (approx. 4kg), and you’re certainly not daunted by the prospect of taking to some pretty large hedges.

Watch the video below to see the Stihl HSE 71 hedge trimmer in action.

As soon as you power it on, there’s no denying that this is a high-performance electric hedge trimmer courtesy of its 600W motor.

We were extremely pleased with the performance of this hedge trimmer and based on our experience would certainly recommend it to anyone that needs a robust tool to maintain large hedgerows.

The full specification and data sheet is available on the official Stihl website.
