No Gasoline. No Emissions. No Power Cord. These are just a few of the benefits offered by Stihl’s state-of-the-art cordless hedge trimmer. Powered by the advanced 36-volt Stihl Lithium-Ion battery technology, the Stihl HSA helps achieve environmentally responsible hedge trimming with professional results. Ideal for pro users, government agencies, and homeowners who want environmentally responsible performance without sacrificing results, this hedge trimmer is four times quieter than its gasoline-powered equivalent.

“The new cordless hedge trimmer combines first-class cutting performance with outstanding working comfort,” said Jürgen Steinhauser, senior vice president of marketing and sales for the worldwide Stihl group.
The lithium-ion battery used for the STIHL HSA 65 is particularly long-lasting and durable as each battery boasts an impressive 36 volts, ensuring that there is plenty of power on hand to deliver a strong performance with each use. The battery can be charged hundreds of times without any noticeable loss in capacity, so users experience no loss in power.
“Lithium-Ion battery technology has developed swiftly in recent years. The technology is now so advanced that we can offer cordless tools that meet STIHL’s high standard of quality and performance,” Steinhauser said, to explain STIHL’s entry into the highly promising battery technology market.
In 2011, additional Stihl Lithium-Ion products will be available in the United States: two string trimmers in the spring and a chain saw and handheld blower in the fall.
