135° quick and easy adjustment
The cutter bar can be adjusted gradually up to 135° in two directions and folded up parallel to the shaft and locked for transportation (transportation mode).
The eyelet for attaching to the shoulder strap can be rotated, so that the appliance can be swung easily.

The long shaft hedge trimmer is mainly used on tall and broad hedges. The shorter K versions with extended tube handles are handy tools for working on low hedges.
STIHL 4-MIX engine
You can always rely on STIHL to keep setting new benchmarks this time with 4-stroke mixed lubrication technology. The STIHL 4-MIX engine, which runs on a fuel-oil mix just like a 2-stroke, offers the benefits without the compromises of 4-stroke power. STIHL 4-MIX engine technology provides fast acceleration, more power, added torque, lower noise, reduced emissions and increased fuel efficiency to complete jobs quickly, quietly and more easily.
The loop handle provides freedom for movement and ease of operation, even under cramped conditions.
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 machines engine are dampened which significantly reduces vibrations at the handles.
Shoulder strap / carrying system
Using a STIHL shoulder strap or carrying harness with soft padding makes work more comfortable, particularly during lengthy jobs.
Multi-function control handle
This houses all the engine controls. Easy, comfortable thumb-operated control means the operators hand never leaves the handle.
The decompression system allows some of the compression pressure in the cylinder to escape, so less force on the starter rope is needed.
Manual fuel pump (purger)
A small fuel pump delivers fuel to the carburettor at the touch of a button. This reduces the number of starting pulls required following extended breaks in operations.
