The HLA86 from Stihl is the new improved model, which supersedes the 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.
