STIHL HSA 26 Cordless Shrub Shears Review


Rating: 4.5 out 5 (from 303 reviews)

The STIHL HSA 26 Cordless Shrub Shears are a versatile tool designed for efficient and precise trimming and maintenance of shrubs and grass. This cordless shears set includes both a shrub trimmer and a grass trimmer attachment, offering users the flexibility to tackle a variety of gardening tasks. The shrub trimmer features optimised STIHL cutter geometry, ensuring an optimal cutting experience when shaping and maintaining small evergreen hedges and small-leafed ornamental trees with branches up to 8mm thick. For edging around smaller lawns, patios, and flower beds, the grass trimmer attachment is the perfect choice.

Designed with user comfort and convenience in mind, the STIHL HSA 26 Cordless Shrub Shears feature a comfortable, rubberised handle that provides a secure grip and reduces fatigue during prolonged use. The tool-free blade change mechanism allows for quick and hassle-free blade replacement, enabling users to switch between tasks with ease. Additionally, the battery charge level indicator keeps users informed about the remaining battery capacity at all times, ensuring uninterrupted work and efficient battery management.

What users think:

Users of the STIHL HSA 26 Cordless Shrub Shears appreciated the convenience this tool offers. Its cordless design allows for easy maneuverability and eliminates the hassle of dealing with cords or finding nearby power outlets. The shears are also well made, with users noting the solid construction and durability of the product. Many users found the STIHL HSA 26 to be superior to its competitors in terms of performance and reliability.

However, some users found them to be underpowered, especially when dealing with thicker branches or dense shrubs. Additionally, some users felt that the battery life could be improved, as it didn't last as long as they had hoped. This required them to recharge or replace the battery more frequently, which interrupted their workflow.

Direct quotes from owners:

Even better than I'd expected. Good combination of light weight and robustness. Lasts very well on a single charge. Bear in mind it's not suitable for heavy hedge or shrubbery maintenance, but is ideal for all those smaller jobs like Lonicera and sedges


brilliant product, so easy to use and light, I even used it on my garden hedge and it coped really well, I love it!


I think This is the best machine on the market, well worth the extra money, so easy to use, so sharp and efficient, excellent for small shrubs etc., Only wish I had found it before trying severlal others.

Price: £134.76
