HSE 52 is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from difficult to operate This hedge trimmer safety handle/trigger system does not work well. Even gripping both safety handle and trigger the trimmer stops and I'ts hard to get it to start again. Tried two different extension cords, same thing so it's not the extension cord.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect I have a Stihl gas powered trimmer, I'm 5'7', weigh 145lbs, and am 68 years old. As convenient as the gas type is the weight was getting to be too much so I bought this electric one. The weight difference is significant and the cut is better - probably because the blades are new :).The quality of the trimmer is typical stihl quality and if you are tired of lower back pain from a heavier trimmer this electric one may help.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This thing will cut better than one would think. I bought this the other weekend because our old battery powered hedge trimmer went on the fritz. So having decided to limit my purchasing of yard power tools pretty much only to Stihl, I went to our local dealer. I had already decided based on the current product selection which model I wanted. They had one in stock ready to go. I did not want another battery powered hedge trimmer, as this is a device used just a few times a year, and dead batteries are very costly to replace. I did not want a gas one either, as they may not want to start after sitting most of the time. The good old electric model is the right choice for us. I can reach everything I need to trim using heavy duty extension cords. I don't have to worry about dead batteries or fouled plugs. It is quiet (relatively), and boy, will this thing cut good size stalks, too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for homeowners My last trimmer was a pro model from another company and this one is far better and a fraction of the cost. I wanted a trimmer that was sharp and light weight and this one is exactly what I was looking for. I recommend it to anyone who needs to do precision trimming on small to medium size shrubs or hedges.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very high quality cutting blade The blade is higher quality than most hedge trimmers i've used in the past. Unit is light in weight and very easy to manipulate around hedges.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent trimmers Purchased this trimmer after weighing the pros and cons of the HS-45 gas unit. Having a couple of herniated disks in my lower back, trimmer weight is a huge concern when leaning out over the top of a bush. But, I also needed a trimmer with enough capacity to cut ewes, hemlock, and the ever so woody, burning bush. The fact they both would perform the same, convinced me to go with the lighter (by 3.5#) electric version. You wouldn't think 3.5# would make much difference but, when extending out at the end of my reach, it's huge!While using this electric trimmer on 150' of 14 ga extension cord, it cut through everything I challenged it with. No problems what-so-ever. Cut 20 shrubs in less than an hour, not including clean up.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from After 3 years up in smoke I used this about 3 hours a year,third year it stop dead. This is way too much money for a throw away. I mays well go to a big box store and buy a cheap one.
