The Stihl HSA 100 Cordless Hedge Trimmer is a powerful cordless hedge trimmer with a rotating handle and a 60 cm / 24″ cutting blade. This HSA 100 Cordless Hedge Trimmer comes with a range of standard features. They have double-sided cutting blades that can cut both vertically and horizontally. The tooth spacing on the blades is wide, allowing thicker branches to be cut, and the 33° cutting angle delivers excellent performance. The blade teeth geometry allows the cutting of twigs up to 8 mm wide. Additionally, the trimmers come with tip protection to prevent damage to the blade, gear, and nearby objects.
The HSA100 also have an optimised cut protection system and a swivelling multi-function handle. The handle can rotate 90° to the left and right, ensuring the best cutting position. The two-handed design allows for easy starting by activating both the loop handle and the rear handle switches. The cutting speed is continuously variable using the rear control, allowing for fine and precise cuts.
Because STIHL electric motor (EC) in this product is highly energy efficient, lightweight, and compact, it runs quietly, generates low vibrations, and does not require servicing. The trimmers also have an effective anti-vibration system to reduce vibrations at the handles. Additionally, they come with a hanging loop for secure storage, a sheath to protect the cutting blade during transport, and a functional design with smooth surfaces and round contours to prevent the tool from getting caught on branches.

Features We Like
Double-sided cutting blades
STIHL hedge trimmers with double-sided cutting blades cut both vertically and horizontally.
The wide gaps in the tooth spacing allow thicker branches to be cut.
Swivelling multi-function handle
The handle rotates by 90° to the left and right, always ensuring the best cutting position.
Intense vibration at the handles of power tools can lead to long-term effects on blood vessels in the hands and arms. STIHL has therefore developed an effective anti-vibration system whereby the oscillations from the machine’s engine are dampened, significantly reducing vibrations at the handles.
STIHL Electric Motor (EC)
The STIHL electric motor (EC) is extremely energy efficient, lightweight and compact. It runs quietly, generates very low vibrations and does not require servicing.Hanging loop
Hang your tool securely on a wall to save space using the loop in the handle housing.
The single-sided precision-ground and double-sided cutting blades produce a clean cut when trimming hedges. The 33° cutting angle delivers excellent cutting performance. The blade teeth geometry allows cutting of twigs up to 8 mm thick.
Come with tip protection as standard, which prevents damage to both the blade and the gear, but also to things that lie near the hedgerow (e.g. natural stone wall). It also makes it easier to cut ground cover plants.
Protects the cutting blade for safe storage and transport.
The tool is quickly started by simultaneously activating both the loop handle and the rear handle switches. The cutting speed is continuously variable using the rear control for a delicate and precise cut. The two-handed design is suitable for both left and right-handed users.
The engine housing has smooth surfaces and round contours. This prevents the tool from getting caught on branches. The hedge trimmers are easy to clean.
Comparing the Stihl HSA 100 Cordless Hedge Trimmer to Petrol Models
If you’re in the market for a new hedge trimmer, you may wonder whether to go for a cordless or petrol-powered model. To help you make an informed decision, we’ve created a table comparing the Stihl HSA 100 Cordless Hedge Trimmer to two similar petrol models: the Stihl HS 45 Petrol Hedge Trimmer and the Stihl HS 82 R Petrol Hedge Trimmer. By comparing key features such as power output, cutting length, and weight, you can determine which model best suits your needs. In addition to performance, we’ve also included information on noise level and environmental impact so that you can make an environmentally conscious choice. Read on to learn more!
