Lightweight cordless long-reach hedge trimmer for cutting taller hedges and shrubs in your home garden. Single-sided cutter blade in a droplet shape, variably adjusted blade angle from -45° to +90°, detachable shaft for easy transport. Carrying length: 115 cm. Total length: 210 cm.


Blade tip protector

BLADE TIP PROTECTOR The HLA 56 comes with a tip protector fitted as standard, which makes cutting near the ground or along walls easier, and helps to protect the blades from damage.

Neutral battery position

NEUTRAL BATTERY POSITION FOR EASY TRANSPORT There are two positions for the battery – in the first neutral position, the battery is secured in the machine but is not connected to the contacts. This means you can carry the battery around easily without accidentally starting the trimmer. In the second position, the battery is fully pushed in and you can easily start the tool.

Double sided cutting blades

WALL-MOUNTING BRACKET INCLUDED There is a bracket included in the box, so you can easily mount your HLA 56 on the wall in your shed.

Integrated cut protection

INTEGRATED CUT PROTECTION The HLA 56 has integrated cut protection which overlaps the working blades, to reduce the risk of them making contact with your leg.

Loop handle

LOOP HANDLE The HLA 56 has a loop handle on the shaft to help you maneuver the trimmer around
