STIHL HS 87 R Hedge Trimmer


Single-sided blades
STIHL hedge trimmers with single-sided blades are ideal for cutting between waist and chest height hedges.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Single-sided cutting blade
The single-sided cutting blade is ground on one side. The special blade geometry ensures high cutting performance.

Tip protector – hedge trimmers
Protects the tip of the hedge trimmer’s cutting blade from wear and tear while working in contact with the ground
Catcher plate for cutter blades
Practical catcher plates for catching and removing cuttings
