Electric Garden Shears are growing in popularity. We provide a full range of STIHL electric garden tools, which can be used interchangeably with STIHL’s full range of battery packs and chargers. This provides you with a full range of cordless garden tools for around the garden and yard. When you’re using a regular large two-stroke hedge trimmer, it can be very tricky manoeuvring it around the garden. Especially when cutting thick, woody hedging and you end up cutting pieces you don’t plan to. You have to be careful as you can do a great deal of damage to your hedging.
Electric Garden Shears: The STIHL HSA 25
The STIHL HSA 25 is an electric hand-held hedge trimmer which is very small, compact and far more manoeuvrable than your standard device. It works really well for contouring and sculpting trees and bushes. This allows you to do quality levels of trimming with high precision.
The Shear blades are laser cut and diamond ground. They branch to a diameter of 8milimetres and work at a speed of 2,000 strokes per minute. The blades counter-rotate which reduces vibration and improve handling. There is also a separate blade for trimming grass for those difficult-to-catch pieces that your lawnmower can’t get to. This is also great when you have grass growing in the sides and corners of your beds and growing boxes. It weights .6kg, making it significantly lighter than your typical large hedge trimmers. It’s quite light giving it an excellent power to weight ratio.
Its 10.8V motor will give you almost 110 minutes, or nearly hours of continuous runtime on one charge. While the battery takes 3-5 hours for a full charge, you can purchase one of STIHL’s batteries to swap if you believe you may take longer to complete your work. The battery is straightforward to swap in and out.
In the HSA 25, each blade moves rather than just one. These are perfect for maintaining shrubs and bushes on residential and smaller properties. The trigger is operated using two or three fingers, making the handling easy. Be sure to keep your free hand away from the blades while in use!
