    very pleased with my stihl hs45 petrol hedge trimmer ive got a 2 acre field of hedges to trim and this trimmer is eating them up great product great service from radmoretucker ordered on the Friday and received it on Monday morning by 11 o clock

  2. Steven Mikulik (verified owner)

    I have a small gardening round this stìhl HS45 hedge trimmer is excellent for my needs ,it saves me so much time compared to my old hedge trimmer. I would have no hesitation in recommending it & Radmore & Tucker to anyone. I received a very fast & efficient service from them & would not hesitate in using them again.

  3. mik_evans (verified owner)

    Excellent price, product and delivery, it was out of stock at the time but still came within 2 days of ordering, only used once yet but seems to be of a very good standard.

  4. Jones (verified owner)

    Great value and first class service.

  5. Jones (verified owner)

    Good value and excellent service.

  6. Alan Murray

    Just received my Stihl hedge trimmer and cut part of the large hedge round my garden with it. Very capable machine and easy to use. I had a cheaper machine previously which was ok but this is a far superior machine. So far I have not done much with it but it seems you get what you pay for. My local garden centre wanted the recommended Stihl price of £285 for the same machine. I was impressed with the delivery time as i ordered it on Friday afternoon and it arrived the following Monday at no cost to me.

  7. Keith Amery (verified owner)

    A great Stihl addition to my gardening equipment. Well made and reasonably light weight and a lovely accurate cut which all go to make this a very desirable high quality product for medium to large sized garden hedges.

  8. John Brooks (verified owner)

    Excellent hedge trimmer; great value and service from Radmore and Tucker.

  9. richard8 (verified owner)

    Excellent – made cutting our hedges easy.

  10. JohnH (verified owner)

    Excellent service, certainly wouldn’t hesitate to use Radmore & Tucker again. Have only used my Stihl HS45 hedge cutter once before the rain started. Brilliant performance and easy to use. Previous hedge cutter had a shorter blade but this one makes a much better job.

  11. Maria Srivens

    what a great piece of kit .hedges cut in no time

  12. Kevin Dillon (verified owner)

    Radmore impressed me with their Stihl strimmer (product and delivery) last year so I wasn’t surprised to find the Stihl hedgecutter was competitively priced when I needed one this year. Ordered on Sunday, received on Tuesday and I’ve used five tanks of fuel by the end of Wednesday. I like the way it idles quietly for as long as you leave it; not always the case with small two stroke engines.

  13. philip bonner (verified owner)

    The hedge trimmer arrived on time so there was an excellent price and service from Radmore and Tucker. The hedge trimmer has proved to be a solid buy and I would recommend the trimmer and supplier.

  14. Bill (verified owner)

    Can’t fault the service at all. Very good value, and the machine performs wonderfully.

  15. Wimborne Garden Services (verified owner)

    Excellent product, excellent product description, excellent delivery and excellent price. Need I say more

  16. Jim (verified owner)

    Good price and prompt delivery. Early days re actual usage of these hedgecutters, but working well so far.

  17. Andrew Kirby (verified owner)

    First time I have owned a petrol hedge trimmer having previously owned electric trimmers. This is a great trimmer. It is easy to start and it makes a great job of cutting hedges and other garden areas. I am delighted with my purchase.

  18. Matt Wilkins (verified owner)

    Great service , great product , great price what more can I say!!

  19. EA BAKER (verified owner)

    Great bit of kit. Glad I went with the 24 inch blade. Fantastic price and service. Got it within a few days of ordering. Can’t complain 5 stars.

  20. Mark S (verified owner)

    Excellent service, and great hedge trimmer. Starts easily and cuts well.

  21. Andrew Hayward (verified owner)

    I gave this review five stars because it is deserved. Delivery was one working day, the Stihl HS45 24″ hedge trimmer is the best petrol-powered device I own (I have 11 various brands of strimmer/chainsaw/generator/etc.) I will be buying Stihl for the next replacement purchase.
    The HS45 started out of the box after a few pulls (once fuelled) and started first pull every time afterwards.
    Radmore Tucker lived up to the reviews with their service.

  22. Phil Brown

    Excellent service: great advice when I enquired as to which machine would best match my requirements,; confirmed availability and speedy dispatch, despite the COVID-19 constraints; swiftly delivered the machine, well packaged to protect the hedge trimmer and oils whilst in transit.
    Thanks very much – highly recommended!

  23. Roy Damian (verified owner)

    This is a great machine and certainly great value. It does give a bit of vibration through the handle so using for long periods is not so great but for small domestic jobs its a great performer. Great service as well from R&T.

  24. steven fayers (verified owner)

    excellent service delivered next day .quality bit of kit, very light cuts through hedges like butter

  25. Terry Jones (verified owner)

    Top Notch, Top service !

  26. Tony (verified owner)

    I have only used the product a few times but it’s easy to use and rigid. The delivery from these guys was excellent ordered late Sunday and received early on Tuesday. Will have this for years to come like all Stihl tools. There is a small amount of vibration but nothing too dramatic. The blades made light work of the jobs I have given it so far.

  27. Mr Derek Hooper

    H S 45 petrol hedge trimmer, cheaper from F R Jones, Plus next day delivery

  28. Dan

    The HS45 cut my hedges with ease and is a brilliant addition to my gardening tools. Outstanding service from Radmore and Tucker. Very fairly priced and incredibly quick service. Thank you.

  29. Jason Abbott (verified owner)

    I have not used this yet as I’m waiting for dryer weather, however I am very impressed with the service, here was the cheapest seller on the internet for it and the delivery was very quick. Here’s to hoping the product is just as good which I’m sure it will be.

  30. adam ward (verified owner)

    Very fast delivery,the hedge cutter is amazing i will definitely be buying more tools fromyou guys

  31. Mark Brookes (verified owner)

    Great item at a great price. The delivery was really quick. Will definitely be using again.

  32. Steve Garner (verified owner)

    I’ve been after good quality hedge cutter for some time. All my other garden tools are Stihl and have never let me down. I could’ve bought this from another company but I always buy on reviews. Radmore and Tuckers reviews are outstanding. So was a no brainier for me. Delivery was one working day, the Stihl HS45 24″ hedge trimmer came and 1000% happy not only with the machine but the professionalism of a great service Radmore gave.

  33. Stuart Mclean (verified owner)

    Great bit of kit,and exceptional service from Radmore & Tucker, item delivered to Isle of Bute, Scotland in three days ?

  34. Lawrence Rideal (verified owner)

    Very well made robust piece of kit, easy to use. Have bought budget equipment in the past which has just not been up to the job, so thought I’d treat myself to a good make.
    Impressed with price and prompt delivery from Radmore and Tucker.

  35. Tony Davies (verified owner)

    Knew that I was buying a good machine, have had same model for 7 years and never given any problem. Just a case of where to purchase, not normally given to buy on the internet but saving too much to ignore and R & T very easy use. Service good and simple to follow.

  36. Kim Dalwood (verified owner)

    Great hedge trimmer, far better than any of the cheap (far east?) trimmers I have bought in the past. Just used it to cut back an overgrown 60ft hedge. Easy to use but do read the manual. Great delivery and aftercare from R&T.

  37. Stephen Farrer (verified owner)

    This review is for Stihl HS45 Petrol Hedge Trimmer – 24″ Blades and covers both the machine and the purchase experience from Radmore & Tucker.

    With any machine bearing the Stihl name you know that you will get a well designed and robust machine. This is true for the Stihl HS45 Petrol Hedge Trimmer – 24″ Blades – easy to start, willing to work hard, and idles well between jobs. As a 2 stroke it performs very well (it is replacing another branded 2 stroke hedge cutter and there is a significant difference !). My only slight concern that it is manufactured in PRC, to Stihl standards, but I will continue to monitor its durability over time.

    The purchase experience with Radmore & Tucker was excellent – great selection online, easy to order, very responsive to questions, and very quick delivery. If service and quality at completive prices matter to you then Radmore & Tucker are the place to go.

  38. Derek (verified owner)

    Faultless service from Radmore Tucker, item arrived quicker than expected.

    The Stihl HS45 Petrol Hedge Trimmer is a nice bit of kit, slices through everything. Lots of youtube videos recommending it so that was the one I went with.

  39. Karl Bates (verified owner)

    Stihl HS45 hedge trimmer 24″blade. What an excellent piece of machinery does a grand job on both my ornimental bushes and rougher boundary hedging. Easy to start and faultless operation , don’t waste your money on cheaper options. Superb service from Radmore and Tucker, delivered in under 48 hours and at price that could not be beaten. Certainly a company to be recommended. Many thanks.

  40. Jim Hampton (verified owner)

    Very happy with the item and impressed with fast delivery and professional service.

  41. Karen (verified owner)

    Have bought a few products now from Radmore and Tucker. Competitive pricing for quality products. Easy to deal, great communication and with fast delivery. Highly recommended.

  42. Alan grant (verified owner)

    Ordered my Stihl 18inch hedge trimmer at 1pm and had it in my hands 1pm next day ..
    ..fab service …..100% happy and would obviously recommend radmoretucker to anyone
    I pressed 1 star instead of 5 star rating by mistake!

  43. David Thomas (verified owner)

    Excellent machine! I’ve used it a few times now and no issues with starting up from cold! If want a high end domestic hedge trimmer, then go for this! Don’t second guess! It is loud, and I would not like to use it without ear defenders! But, this no way deflects from the quality of this machine! And I would definitely buy from this company again! 5 stars!

  44. Mike Jones (verified owner)

    Excellent product replacing a previous one that had given many good years of service. Superb service from R&T. Ordered the cutter at 2.00pm and I was unpacking it at 10.30am the next day. This is the fourth piece of garden machinery i have bought from R&T over the years and i have been delighted with each experience.

  45. Alan L (verified owner)

    I needed a decent trimmer as I have a fairly large garden that needed serious attention after a period of neglect.
    I already had an electric trimmer that wasn’t really up to the job and after a fair bit of research, came to the conclusion the Stihl HS-45 was the machine for the job.
    After having spent 2 full days working with the machine, I’m incredibly pleased I chose it. It handled even the most stubborn of branches with ease and made the job much easier than it would have otherwise been.
    The machines is not too heavy, fuel efficiency is great and starting the machine was no problem, just be sure to read the instructions to familiarise yourself with operation and starting procedure.
    Service from Radmore Tucker was great with next day delivery as standard.
    All in all, very pleased with the machine and Radmore Tucker.

  46. David Thompson (verified owner)

    Delighted with everything.
    The service & price from Radmore & Tucker is first class from delivery to customer service. Will definitely be my first choice whenever I need anything. Thanks for a great transaction. Highly trusted.

  47. Stuart Letheren (verified owner)

    Great price compared to other retailers. I’m sure this will be as reliable as my chainsaw & Strimmer from R&T.

  48. Martin (verified owner)

    Very good machine,easy to use, excellent service and communication from radmore and tucker

  49. Michael Woodcock

    Excellent product. I have the 24,inch blade version and this makes light work of cutting the hawthorn, ceder and privet hedges around my half acre garden. No problems after 3 seasons. Possible downsides are that the machine is quite noisy, drinks quite a bit
    of fuel and can be tricky to start until you have worked out it’s foibles. Lovely machine, though.

  50. Mr Allistair P Piper (verified owner)

    Very pleased ,an excellent machine delivered the next day. Highly recommend.

    Very impressed with Radmore and Tucker as a company they kept me well informed during the purchase procedure as did their chosen delivery courier. The price for the product was the lowest price I could find on the web, although I have not used the hedge trimmer yet I have no doubts about its ability.
