The HLA86 from Stihl is the new improved model, which supercedes the previous model (and ever popular) HLA85. This new model has been re-designed to give the user a better overall balance, which will reduce fatigue when working for long periods. The square telescopic shaft gives a very rigid construction and protects against twisting and deflection with a new easy to use clamping sleeve. It also features an all new ergonomic control handle with self resetting ergo lever. With an overall length of 260 – 330cm and 50cm double sided, doubled edged blade, this trimmer is great for professional users tackling large hedges. The head is adjustable from -45° to +70° and folds flat, allowing a transport length of around 180cm.

Main price shown is for the machine only – batteries & chargers to be added separately.

IMPORTANT NOTE: We very strongly recommend that resin solvent spray is used on the blades of any cordless hedge trimmer after each use. This spray will dissolve sap and prevent the blades sticking and causing avoidable technical issues with the machine.

    Product – as expected.

  2. Paul (verified owner)

  3. Gordon

    Excellent product as expected. Had tried my neighbour’s (he had the previous version HLA85) and liked it so decided to buy one myself – wish I’d had one for all the years I’ve had lots of hedges to trim! Briants service was excellent – I rang ahead to ensure availability in store for collection, got shown how to use it and advice on battery charging & storage, and ensured price was same as quoted here. Long live independent stores like this!

  4. Angus Waine (verified owner)

    Excellent service from Briants. Good price, quick delivery and info about the order progress was accurate. Thanks!

    I will certainly use Briants again.

  5. Gower Tree Work (verified owner)

    Excellent piece of kit.
    Customer Service from Briants is brilliant with excellent delivery times.

  6. Martin (verified owner)

    Very impressed with the machine, performance is equal to petrol powered variants, but without the noise or fumes.
    Build quality up to Stihl’s usual high standard. Well balanced, even when fully extended, so comfortable to use for extended periods. Layout of controls well thought out and intuitive. Run mine on AP200 battery, which gives ample run time for most tasks and certainly lasts longer than the recharge time of a second battery, so no need to pause work. Thoroughly recommended for heavy duty professional use.
