The STIHL HS 82 RC-E is a powerful professional hedge trimmer with 2-MIX engine technology. The HS 82 R boasts a double-sided cutting blade which is designed to cut through the toughest of hedges. The reliable, durable blades and gearbox will cope with a variety of uses, whether it the first cut of the season or general maintenance. With a reduction in weight and increased efficiency, these machines will make light work of all trimming tasks.

STIHL 2-MIX-Engine – The STIHL 2-mix engine specially designed for the new generation of hedge trimmer combines low consumption and emissions with low weight and excellent acceleration. There are also always sufficient power reserves for cutting thicker shrubs.

Double-sided blades – Dual ground blade system provides a clean cut. Excellent for cutting stronger, thicker branches.

Cutting variation (R) – The R variations of the STIHL HS 82 and STIHL HS 87 are designed specifically for large volume cutting. They feature a cutting blade with wide tooth spacing and longer tooth height. The gearing allows a high cutting power at a
medium stroke rate. The R variations provide the possibility of cutting thicker branches and completing clearing work faster.

Swivelling multi-function handle – The handle rotates by 90? to the left and right, ensuring the best cutting position at all times.

Electronic ignition module – This ensures reliable starting and trouble-free running. The ignition system is fully encapsulated and thus protected from damp and dirt.

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.

Anti-vibration system – 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 machine’s engine are dampened which significantly reduces vibrations at the handles.

STIHL ErgoStart (E) – A genuine advance in easy starting. STIHL ErgoStart (E) cuts the effort required to start the tool by half, while the starter cord can be pulled at just one-third of the normal force. All it takes is 2 fingers and gentle pull action.

The long-life air filter system – Ensures longer cleaning intervals and better protection of the engine.

Tool-free filler cap – Patented special filler caps for fuel and oil. These filler caps can be opened and closed again quickly and easily, without tools.

Double-sided cutting blade – The cutting blade is double-sided. The sophisticated blade geometry makes for a job well done.
