A battery-powered hedge trimmer bringing extended reach capability to the versatile and value-packed STIHL AK Series.
The STIHL HLA 56 is the first extended-reach hedge trimmer within the AK Series. Powered by the 36-volt lithium-ion battery as other products within the AK Series, this hedge trimmer provides homeowners with more versatility by combining the benefits of a battery-powered product with the ability to accomplish difficult trimming tasks. A high cutting speed of 2,800 strokes per minute allows for clean and efficient cutting, even when dealing with larger branches. At 11.1 pounds (with AK 20 battery) and with an articulating cutting blade offering a 135-degree range, the HLA 56 leverages optimal cutting performance with the lightweight portability needed to get the job done.
Note: Batteries and chargers can be purchased separately or as a combined set with tool.
The blade cover helps protect the cutting blade during storage and transport.
The housing has smooth surfaces and round contours that help to keep it from
getting caught on branches during use. The design also makes cleaning easy.
Vertical Hanging Slot
The built-in hanging slot allows for easy storage when not in use.
STIHL hedge trimmers with single-sided blades are ideal for cutting hedges in one direction that range between waist and chest height.
Laser-Cut Diamond-Ground Blades
Each blade is laser cut and ground using diamond discs. The hardened cutting edges are highly resilient and remain sharp for a longer period of time.
The tip protector makes cutting near the ground or along walls easier while protecting the trimmer’s cutters from damage.
