My HS 45 seems to drip oil while cutting, I think it is damaging plants. Is it because there is too much oil in the fuel mix?


Fuel mixture for that model is 50 to 1. Stihl also sell their own premixed fuel and oil which is Ethanol free and non aromatic.

I wondered if it has a blade oiler, but it doesn't. I does however have a gearbox with oil in it. I wonder if it is leaking. Do you know where the excess oil is coming from?

You model is listed here and the Manual and details of the fuel are on his page.

Hi there, Im looking for a repair/workshop manual for a Stihl HS80 hedge trimmer. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Cheers Gavin


Stihl don't publish manuals as such, they want to preserve their dealers. An HS80 is not complex and if you go to Barretts Small Engines online they have exploded parts pictures which should be all you need to strip it. Stihl do owners manuals online.

Why is compression low and blades will not engage?


Low compression equals bad rings...
If the unit is fairly new, that shouldn't be a problem. If what you mean 8s that when u engage the throttle and it's not getting more power, check your carburetor setting. Look for the "H" . When you adjust this needle , hold the throttle in as you do it.

Stihl hs45 will not start but it will run after i use auto start


Check fuel lines, filter and carb... Sounds like a poor fueling issue. clean and replace carb diaphrams. Check gaskets between cylinder and carb.

Stihl HS45 hedge trimmer runs fine, blades move well, does not appear to cut hedge - what could be the problem ?


Dull blades! Lol, or they're not meeting eachother on each reciprocating stroke so there is no shearing action, much like a pair of scissors. Check to see if the blade bolts are too loose or is the blades are warped or if the cutting edges are simply too dull

Hs45 backfires spits


Sounds like an over fueling issue, Try resetting the carb to its standard settings, screw both tuning screws right in ant then turn anticlockwise to the following settings H 3/4 of a turn. L 1 full turn. This should set it back to standard. If this doesn't help then it could be a carb diaphram or sticking needle.
