Stihl HS 82 R VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. – Stihl introduces its new HS 82 and HS 87 hedge trimmers (22.7 cc).

Compared to previous models*, both are lighter, have increased blade speed and are powered by an advanced low-emission engine that is 20% more fuel efficient. 

These trimmers offer several features for landscape professionals:

  • The new fuel efficient engine allows for longer run times and reduced costs.
  • Lightweight, well-balanced design allows for longer work hours with reduced fatigue as well as easy maneuverability around large shrubs or hard to reach spaces.
  • Low-vibration technology and swivel handle provide improved comfort compared to previous models.
  • Multi-function control handle makes it easy to start and stop the trimmer and all of the throttle controls are in one central location.

The HS 82 has a double-sided durable blade designed for sweeping, back-and-forth cuts and the HS 87 has a single-sided blade, better for straight cutting. Both come in two versions to suit a variety of landscapers’ cutting needs. “The HS 82 T and HS 87 T are ideal for trimming and contouring hedges and bushes. The high stroke rate, reduced tooth height and narrow tooth spacing guarantee an extremely precise, clean cut,” said Stephen Meriam, Stihl director of sales. “The HS 82 R and 87 R versions have a low stroke rate, more cutting power, greater tooth height and wider tooth space for bigger jobs like pruning overgrown hedges or clearing vegetation.”

*As compared to HS 81 and HS 86
