Product Description

The Stihl HS 45 Petrol Hedge Trimmer is the ideal light introductory model for garden trimming and features Elastostart for comfortable starting and 2-MIX engine technology which provides outstanding performance.

The Stihl HS45 is available in two blade lengths: 45cm/18″ or 60cm/24″.

Electronic ignition module
This ensures reliable starting and trouble-free running. The ignition system is fully encapsulated and thus protected from damp and dirt.

Manual fuel pump (Purger)
A small fuel pump delivers fuel to the carburettor at the touch of a button. This reduces the number of starting pulls required following extended breaks in operations.

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.

Long-life air filter system
Ensures longer cleaning intervals and better protection of the engine.

Double-sided cutting blade
The cutting blade is double-sided. The sophisticated blade geometry makes for a job well done.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
