Product Features:

High cutting performance

The cutting teeth are droplet shaped with a large tooth spacing and integrated cut protection to ensure high cutting performance.

Simple operation

The HLA 56 has a locking lever (orange front), ERGO lever (black) and main trigger lever (orange below). The locking lever is self-resetting and prevents unintentional switching on of the device. When the ERGO lever and shift lever are pressed, you can work continuously with ease.

Simple head angle adjustment

With the help of the large angle adjustment button, the blade angle can be easily adjusted without tools from -45 ° to + 90 ° for cutting the the top of the hedge and sides.

Split shaft

The shaft of the HLA 56 is easily seperable thanks to the clamp with toggle screw. The tool can therefore be easily transported and stored.

Loop handle

The comfortable all-round handle ensures great freedom of movement and easy handling, even in more confined spaces.

Tip protection

The tip protector allows you to cut closer to the ground or along walls and helps protect the blades from damage.

Wall mounted storage bracket

Thanks to the wall bracket, the individual shaft components can be stored off the ground helping to save space in your shed or garage

Additional accessories (sold separately): 


  • Extension shaft

Extension shaft

To extend the length of the HLA 56 by an extra 50cm for those taller hedges, there is an optional extension shaft available to purchase separately.
