The Stihl HSA 56 has double-edged, diamond ground blades that deliver a smart finish on the bushes and hedges in your garden, and the droplet shape on the blade guides twigs and branches into the blades for an even cut. Make trimming your hedges an easy task with our lightweight, cordless HSA 56 hedge trimmer.

The HSA 56 is part of the AK System of tools, which includes grass trimmers, hedge trimmer, chainsaws and lawnmowers and uses interchangeable batteries that can be swapped between tools in the range.

Quiet technology
The STIHL cordless tools are so quiet you don’t even need to wear ear protection.

Neutral battery position
The battery can be inserted into the tool in 2 stages. In the first neutral position, the battery is secured in the tool but does not connect with the contacts, allowing for safe transport. In the second operating position, the battery is completely inserted allowing for full operation of the tool.

Blade tip protector
The tip protector comes fitted as standard and makes cutting near the ground or along walls easier, whilst helping to protect the cutters from damage.

Double-sided cutting blades
STIHL hedge trimmers with double-sided cutting blades cut both vertically and horizontally.

Two-handed design
The tool is easily started by activating both switches on the loop handle and the rear handle at the same time. The cutting speed is continuously variable using the rear control, for a fine and precise cut. The two-handed design is suitable for both left and right-handed users.

Hanging eye
The hedge trimmers can be conveniently hung up on the wall with the hanging eye.

  3. Kevin Cunnington (verified owner)

    Top product and good delivery

  4. Simon Head (verified owner)

    Excellent price and delivery, very competitive to all other internet providers. The product is very well built and certainly a lot easier to use than electric hedge trimers (no more cutting through the wire !!).
    Would certainly recommend buying this item from Radmore & Tucker.

  5. Tom Wallis

    Very efficient and light hedgetrimmer. Battery lasts well and quickly recharges on the standard charger. Very impressed with this lightweight tool for the small garden!

  6. Graham Davies (verified owner)

  7. Mick (verified owner)

    bought Stihl hedge cutter .,Ordered 1121 Monday, arrived 1105 Tuesday. Excellent service,quicker and cheaper than the big companies,and very helpful staff.have 2stihl brush cutters 11&12yrs old,still going well.

  8. David Burton (verified owner)

    Fantastic tool. IT is sharp and cuts through thick, woody bushes well. The price was the best I could find online too.
    Very pleased.

  9. Graeme Harkness (verified owner)

    Purchased the HSA56 to complement earlier purchases of the long reach hedge trimmer and blower. The kit is fantastic, light enough to use for quite a while, battery power on AK20’s is also excellent , easy to handle, cuts well with plenty of power. The battery slot cover is well worth the extra few pounds. Radmore & Tucker customer care is first class, advice freely given by phone and email with excellent internet prices. I cant fault them.

  10. Garth Evans (verified owner)

    Stihl products are top class and the service from Radmore and Tucker matches up.

  11. david williams (verified owner)

    Usual quality product from Stihl. Cordless makes using the cutter much less hassle. The price was the best I could find online.
    Very pleased.

  12. Linda (verified owner)

    Great product.
    Great company to deal with. Good communication all the way through the purchase.
    Would recommend.

  13. Chris Turner (verified owner)

    This is my second purchase from Radmore and Tucker. Great online price and delivered quickly – no issues and the product itself is very good. High quality build – very sharp blade. Starting to build on my battery powered tools – the battery fits two other tools in this range. Very powerful batteries that seem to last a long time (3hrs plus) on continuous use. Battery has an indicator so its clear to see how many bars (4) are used / left.

  14. Alan Jarvis (verified owner)

    Good price, very good product.
    Item out of stock when ordered but kept informed about delivery date which was only three days more than expected.
    Only problem was parcel force delivered it to my local Screwfix! They did quickly realise their mistake and rectify it.

  15. Clinton Borders (verified owner)

    Great product and great service from R & T.

  16. Kevin Thomas (verified owner)

    Excellent service from Radmore and Tucker – ordered on Friday night and delivered mid morning on the following Monday.
    I already have a number of other Stihl products and this lives up to the quality I expected

  17. Jan Summers (verified owner)

    Excellent machine – light and easy to use. Delivery service first class.

  18. Tony Price

    RT service is excellent. Great prices and really quick delivery. The HSA 56 started life well, but after 2 years of very light use (maybe every couple of weeks domestic duty), it’s needed a gearbox strip down, rebuild with new bearings, having found absolutely no evidence of lubrication from the factory. After £50 on repairs, it’s back in the local Stihl dealer having lasted 5 minutes since being fixed. It’s just out of warranty, I’m expecting nothing from Stihl. The HS45 lasted years, despite it’s temperamental starting habits. I now have the dilemma to pour more ££ in to repair or to scrap it and buy a Husky.
