HLA 85



Tall shrubs are no match for this quiet and lightweight telescopic, battery-powered, extended reach hedge trimmer. Batteries & chargers can be purchased separately or as a combined set with tool.

Now when professionals want to use a cordless tool for high shrubs and hedges, they have a tool as tough as they are. The HLA 85 STIHL Lithium-Ion extended reach hedge trimmer offers lightweight, balanced trimming thanks to its brushless, high-efficiency electric motor. Part of the STIHL battery-powered equipment line, the HLA 85 runs on the same universal battery shared by other battery-powered tools and offers long run times on a single charge (up to 11 hours with the AR 900 backpack battery) with no gradual drop in performance.

The HLA 85 features a variable speed throttle trigger, offering optimal cut control. It is equipped with an articulating gearbox (-45° to 70°), for cutting the tops of hedges and near the ground. The HLA 85 runs extremely quiet and produces zero exhaust emissions - great for working in noise-restricted areas. Best of all, there's no fuel cost, minimal maintenance and no restrictive extension cords.

Batteries & chargers can be purchased separately or as a combined set with tool.

Run time may vary based on battery type, charge level and capacity, model, operating style and conditions.
