This HSE 52 is a lightweight electric hedge trimmer which is perfect for trimming new growth and thinner branches on hedges and bushes around your property.

It's quiet and light enough to be used comfortably for long periods of time. The clever design of the wrap-around front handle makes it easy to switch from cutting vertically to horizontally.

The cutting blades are laser cut and diamond ground so they stay sharper for longer and the blade tip protector keeps the blade from being damaged when trimming close to the ground.

The integrated cord strain relief prevents the cord from being pulled and accidentally disconnected  so you can rely on this powerful electric hedge trimmer to get the job done.

Question: How long is the blade on the HSE 52?

A: The blade is 20"/50 cm long.

Question: What should I wear when using this hedge trimmer?

A: We recommend that you wear snug-fitting clothes, eye protection, gloves and sturdy boots or shoes, and tie back long hair.

Question: Will the blades need sharpening?

A: Keeping the blades sharp will give a neat cut on whatever you are trimming. If you notice that the blades are getting jammed easily or the machine is struggling, the blades may need sharpening. Our approved STIHL Dealers can do this for you - find your nearest dealer at


Question: Does the hedge trimmer come with a blade cover?

A: Yes, your hedge trimmer comes with a scabbard to cover the blades during transport or storage. On new machines, the scabbard will be quite tight so you may need to use some force to remove it for the first few times. Just hold the scabbard about half way down and pull it away from you so your hands or body cannot come into contact with the blades.


#1 Using your HSE 52

You will get a neat, straight finish on your hedges if you move the trimmer in an upwards motion when trimming. The HSE 52 has a built-in tip protector at the end of the blades so that you can trim closer to the ground without damaging the blades.

#2 Cleaning your HSE 52

After using your HSE 52, unplug the machine, then spray a little resin solvent onto the blades to remove sap or resin, protect them from corrosion and stop them getting stuck together.

#3 Storing your HSE 52

Store your HSE 52 electric hedge trimmer in a clean and dry area and keep out of the reach of children at all times.
