HLA 85 is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another well thought out product I've owned this tool for just a few weeks & so far I'm very impressed. I already have the battery powered saw, two ap180 batteries & the al100 charger. Being more than happy with the saw (although it has its limitations), I took the plunge & purchased the telescopic trimmer. The run time is a lot longer than the saw, easily an hour. Using this tool combined with a little tidying up in between, shifting stepladders etc. This tool + two batteries & the slow charger is easily on a par with my other cutters. It has a one year guarantee (two for the home user), & the quality you expect from stihl. Only downer is not being able to use it in heavy rain. Les noise, no petrol fumes & spillages & the customer pays to charge the battery. It just makes sense.Very pleased!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Elegant tool I'm a professional landscaper who's been watching the Stihl battery line for some time. I decided to jump in and buy the HLA 85 as my first battery powered tool purchase.So far, I'm very happy with it! It feels space age and elegant. It's incredibly quiet, the variable speed trigger is great, and my battery (AP 180) still has four green bars on the charge meter even after pruning several small hedges.This is not a light weight tool, and is built with high quality materials; the cutting side is still almost as heavy as a gas powered unit, but without the gas power head, it is much lighter to carry around overall.I'm very much looking forward to getting the other battery tools, as I feel this is the way of the future especially as battery technology matures.
