Selection HLA 56 Long-reach Hedge Trimmer

HLA 56 Cordless Long-reach Hedge Trimmer

135° adjustable cordless long-reach hedge trimmer with 45 cm / 18" blade length

Overview

The HLA 56 is the perfect tool to cut taller hedges and shrubs in your garden.

Our lightweight and well-balanced cordless long-reach hedge trimmer has double-edged, droplet shaped blades to guide branches between the cutting teeth for a precise and even finish. The angle of the head can be changed from -45° to +90° so you can easily trim all of those hard to reach areas in the garden.

With a detachable shaft for easy transport and a bracket included for neat storage, the HLA 56 is a great tool to add to your collection. The HLA 56 is just one of the tools in our AK System - the interchangeable battery in the HLA 56 can also be used in other tools in this range including a grass trimmer, blower, lawn mowers and chainsaws. Carrying length: 115 cm.

Cannot be used with Kombi attachments, HTA 50 pole pruner, RTS harness or HTA 50 shaft extension.

      • STIHL Smart Connector Zoom
        STIHL Smart Connector

        STIHL connected is a smart fleet management system that enables professional users to digitally manage machine fleets and work assignments.

        This is managed by the STIHL Smart Connector - a sensor with a diameter of just under 5cm, which is mounted on the tool. It can be mounted on petrol, electric or battery-powered tools where it records and saves the operating hours while the motor is running and transmits this information via Bluetooth® 4.2 to the STIHL connected App (the smart connector can be mounted on non-STIHL tools too). The Smart Connector offers entirely new functions and services, as a basis for device management both in your home garden using the STIHL connected App, and for managing your machine fleet using the STIHL connected Portal.

        Here’s a few reasons why STIHL connected can help manage your fleet of tools:

        • The Digital Fleet Management keeps a record of all tools and their service record
        • You get prompts when a tool needs servicing, so you never forget to change the plug, filter or just carry out maintenance
        • You can see how many hours a tool has done, so you can plan which tools to use, replace or buy more of
        • At the end of the day, you can open the app and see which tools are next to you - so you can tell if something is missing
        • Book a service with your nearest STIHL Approved Dealer and give them access to see what work will be needed in advance.

        STIHL Connected is an intuitive way to manage your machine fleet and workload intelligently and efficiently. Visit: STIHL connected FAQs to find out more.
