    Fantastic piece of equipment. I should have changed to battery years ago !!

    Very fine piece of equipment. Although I have only used the trimmer for two weeks I have other Stihl products that are 20 years old so I am expecting good longevity.
    The AK20 battery gives many hours of continuous use.
    The machine is not light so using it with arms extended will be tiring but the compromise with being able to easily cut through medium hedge branches seems about right. The pivoting head has all the available angles I need.
    With the possible exception of a chain saw it seems that rechargeable technology has now replaced thermal engine power for garden equipment. All in all an excellent product so far.

    Bought the Stihl HLA56 after having all my petrol trimmers stolen. Was unsure how it would compare but so far very pleased with its performance. Battery lasted over an hour today and still hadn’t gone flat, lighter weight so easier to use. Briants service was excellent, my order was received the following day. Instant confirmation of sale by text and was kept updated re dispatch etc. The trimmer naturally hasn’t got quite the power that you would get from a petrol version but it does a good job if hedges aren’t too thick or woody. Overall very pleased

    Great piece of kit as mentioned before not the lightest but certainly does a great job

  5. Matt cross (verified owner)

    Really good products, both hedge trimmer and strimmer have plenty of power to get through a large garden. I’d recommend the poly cut head for the strimmer and also get 2 batteries. Very quick delivery on products that I couldn’t source anywhere else!
