Quiet operation

The STIHL COMPACT cordless power system devices are so quiet you don't even need ear protection.

Intermediate battery position in the device

The battery can be inserted into the device in 2 stages. In the first locking stage – the intermediate position – the battery is secured in the device but does not touch the contacts in the device. In the second locking stage – the operating position – the battery is completely inserted and touches the contacts in the device.

Double sided cutting blades

STIHL hedge trimmers with double-sided cutting blades cut both vertically and horizontally.

Two handed design

The Skin is easily started by activating both switches on the loop handle and the rear handle at the same time. The cutting speed is continuously variable using the rear control – for a fine and precise cut. Especially practical: the two handed design is suited for both left-handed and right-handed users.

Hanging eye

The hedge trimmers can also be conveniently hung up on the wall with the practical hanging eye.

Blade tip protector

The tip protector comes as standard and makes cutting near the ground or along walls easier while protecting the special cutters from damage.
