STIHL’s Lightning Battery Systems product offering now includes the HSA 56 high-speed battery hedge trimmer. According to the company, users can trim the length of three football fields (up to 1,000 feet) on a single charge. The hedge trimmer is also highlighted by:
- A weight of just 8.1 pounds, including the battery.
- A cutting speed of 2,800 strokes per minute.
- Inclusion of the 36-volt, 1.4-amp-hour STIHL AK 10 battery and STIHL AL 101 battery charger.
- No battery memory limitation and no gradual drop in power—the trimmer runs at full speed until the battery is depleted.
- Lights to indicate the battery status/level of charge.
- A long service life as more than 80 percent of the battery capacity remains after 500 charges.
