Ideal for large volume cutting, the HS 82 RC-E is a clever, powerful tool.
Adaptations to the blade mean this professional petrol hedge trimmer is able to cut thicker branches, while it also features several labour-saving and operator-friendly additions to make it easier to use.
Easy to start with an efficient engine
The HS 82 RC-E uses STIHL's ErgoStart system, which reduces the effort needed to start the machine by half, while the starter cord can be pulled with just a third of the normal force. A manual fuel pump and electronic ignition module also assist with starting, increasing reliability and trouble-free running, as well as reducing the number of starting pulls required after extended breaks in operation. The engine itself uses STIHL's 2-MIX technology, which combines low consumption and emissions with low weight and excellent acceleration.
Comfortable & easy to use
With an anti-vibration system built in, the HS 82 RC-E dampens the oscillations from the machine's engine to significantly reduce vibrations at the handles. It also has a single lever operation, with the choke, start gas, operating position and stop functions integrated onto one operating element, making it a more comfortable and an easier tool to use. The handle can be rotated 90 degrees to the left and right so that you can get the perfect cutting angle. Tool-free filler caps for fuel and oil ensure you can open and close them quickly and easily, saving you hassle and avoiding mess.
Supreme cutting performance
As the 'R' version, this model offers wider tooth spacing and a longer tooth height, while the gearing supports a high cutting power at a medium stroke rate. This offers the possibility of cutting thicker branches and completing clearing work faster. The blade is double-sided and 30 inches / 75 cm long. The HS 82 RC-E is an ideal tool for large volume cutting and dealing with stronger, thicker, branches.
