The new STIHL HSA 65 requires no gasoline or power cord.

| July 6, 2010

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. – Powered by the 36-volt STIHL lithium-ion battery, the STIHL HSA helps achieve professional results without using gasoline. Ideal for professsionals, government agencies and homeowners, this hedge trimmer is four times quieter than its gasoline-powered equivalent. The HSA 65 features diamond-ground blade edges for cleaner cuts, and high cutting speeds to trim job times as fast as it cuts fuel costs.

With zero exhaust emissions and reduced noise, the new cordless hedge trimmer is ideal for use in noise- and emission-sensitive places such as interior landscaping properties, residential areas, public parks, roof gardens, hospitals and municipalities.

The 20-inch blade length is a handy working length for most applications, allowing for maneuverability and control for sculpting and shaping as well as for general hedge trimming. Portable and lightweight, the HSA 65 comes with an onboard hanging slot for easy storage and convenience. A tip protector helps prevent accidental contact.

STIHL says the lithium-ion battery can be charged hundreds of times without any noticeable loss in capacity.
