The STIHL HS 46 C-E at 4.3kg is the lightest petrol hedge trimmer in the STIHL range. A number of standard features such as ErgoStart, anti-vibration system and the new master control lever, that combines the choke, startup, operating position and stop functions all in one – a worldwide first on a petrol hedge trimmer, make the HS 46 C-E the tool of choice for domestic use. If you are looking for a robust, lightweight hedge trimmer that is easy to start and a dream to use then look no further.
The comfort variants HS 46 C and HS 56 C come with tip protection as standard, which prevents damage to both the blade and the gear, but also to things that lie near the hedgerow (e.g. natural stone wall). It also makes it easier to cut ground cover plants. (similar to illustration)
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.
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.
Extend your domestic warranty from 2 to 3 years with the purchase of 5 litres of STIHL MotoMix® fuel and this product. Your STIHL Approved Dealer will register your extended warranty on the STIHL warranty database at point of purchase.
