Stihl HSA 86 Cordless Hedge Trimmer

The 33 box balls in the borders of the Ruskin Building quad were cut today using the new Stihl HSA 86 cordless hedge trimmer. In previous years, as well as using hand shears, the box was first cut using a Stihl petrol hedge trimmer which was heavy, noisy and in need of several refuels. This new hedge trimmer is lighter, much quieter and the battery lasted for the entire duration of the task. Its low running noise is perfect for the college environment, particularly when cutting these box balls as they are situated next a meeting room which is regularly in use. 


  1. Looks a really nice piece of equipment and just what I need. My arthritic wrists struggle with my petrol driven trimmer.
    In pricing up on the net with battery charger, battery and trimmer it looks £400 +

    1. Hi Roger, It really is a nice piece of kit. The trade price for the battery and hedge trimmer was £350. We also have the Stihl BGA 85 Cordless Blower, another great piece of kit so already had the charger and another battery. Hope this helps. Ali
