The HS 45 is a lightweight hedge trimmer designed for occasional homeowner use. Featuring an ElastoStart™ shock-absorbing starter handle, and 18” dual reciprocating double-sided blades with integrated cutter guard, this unit is easy to operate for jobs around the home.
Anti-vibration system: Intense vibration at the handles of power tools can lead to long-term effects on blood vessels in the hands and arms. STIHL has therefore developed an effective anti-vibration system whereby the oscillations from the machine's engine are dampened which significantly reduces vibrations at the handles.
STIHL ElastoStart: STIHL ElastoStart reduces the shock caused by the compression of the engine during starting. The compression shock is taken away from the user's joints and muscles through a spring or rubber element in the starter handle.
