An extremely lightweight and quiet electric hedge trimmer.
More powerful than the previous model, this 420W 18 inch / 45 cm-bladed electric hedge trimmer can help keep your garden looking its best.
Excellent cutting performance
The 18 inch / 45 cm blade is double-sided, laser cut, and ground using diamond discs. These hardened edges are very resilient as a result, and are able to remain sharp for a longer period of time. This model also boasts a high stroke rate (up to 3,400 strokes per minute), to provide the cleanest cut possible.
More power than ever before
With 420W of power, the new range of electric hedge trimmers from STIHL are even more versatile than previous models. You can rest assured that the HSE 42 is more than a match for cutting hedges, trimming bushes or other jobs around the garden.
Comfortable operation & control
The HSE 42 is a wonderfully lightweight machine (just 3kg) and is quiet to operate. It also has low vibrations, making it a pleasure to use and comfortable over long periods. Cable strain relief prevents the power cable (a 10m cable is supplied as standard) from becoming accidentally disconnected during use. A small hand guard ensures an optimal view of the cutting blades, and a mechanical blade brake stops the blade reliably in less than a second.
