    Best hand pruner I've used for pruning apple trees
    I have a 100 tree apple orchard that I manage. Annual pruning takes a sizeable amount of time. My old Stanley pruners caused hand pain and finger fatigue. The Felco pruners that I tried kept slipping out of my hand as they seemed to be end-heavy. Stihl's PP70 pruners are the best by far. No fatigue or hand pain after hours of pruning. Better still, they seem to be an extension of the hand and are easily maneuvered around and between branches when pruning. I oil the blade and the pivot point ... read more after each day of pruning.. A touch up sharpening with the diamond stone is needed once or twice during the season. The price is a tad high but you get what you pay for. I've purchased a second set to have as a spare. On the down side, I've busted the spring twice due to fatigue, but Stihl has replaced it both times without question under their lifetime warranty.

    PP 70
    This hand pruner is the best I have ever used, let alone held! The locking feature is easy to unlock but is very secure when not in use. The price may scare some homeowners/landscapers away, but the quality of the blades are amazing and can be removed to be sharpened, unlike many professional hand pruners out there. Amazing hand pruner for all jobs, from cutting flowers to trimming small branches! I do recommend the hand pruner leather sheath for easy transport!

    Very nice.
    Great leverage and action. Light and strong. We have had 3 pairs. Sort of difficult to buy as local dealers don't all carry the hand tools.

    Great maul
    Split a bunch of red oak with this maul, and was very impressed how much better it was than my old cheap maul. Wish I would have gotten one of these years ago. I like the steel collar, really protects the handle.

    Wow!
    I have been missing out. I let cost dissuade me from purchasing the Pro Splitting Maul a year ago, instead I bought a box store fiberglass and rubber handled maul. Last weekend, my brother in law and I fought through and busted up a cord of red oak with two box store mauls. The rubber below the maul on both are ripped up from just a few over strikes and it took so many swings to get the rounds to break up.... With last weekend in mind... Today I decided there has to be something better - so I ... read more headed to the local Stihl dealer to look at the Pro Splitting Axe and Pro Splitting Maul. I picked up the Pro Splitting Maul. With the first swing on the same oak rounds, they just popped apart. I actually had to change the speed of my swing so I didn't destroy the splitting stump. It was amazing. The steel sleeve on the handle is great and the weight of the head is perfect. There is a level of happiness that comes with finally getting the right tool for a job - I am very pleased with the quality and performance of the Pro Splitting Maul. Definitely worth the price.

    Found this tool very durable as a timber felling axe for driving wedges
    Started using this axe this year as a trial to see how it held up to driving wedges as part of my job felling timber. Well it held up surprisingly well and even though its a little on the light side I found I could get a good powerful fast swing that could drive wedges into a heavy side and back leaner that was 45" dbh. The handle at the head of the axe is strong and with all the heavy wedge work the head is still holding tight. Only issue I had was the second axe I bought I did not check the ... read more grain orientation in the handle and it snapped right at the upper bend when I was driving my first wedge with it. So make sure you check the grain on the handle and make sure it is oriented vertically and not horizontal for the strongest axe handle. They are guaranteed for life if the handle fail premature so that is a nice feature from Stihl. Fits into metal scabbards well. Overall great timber falling axe that I would recommend.

    Interesting design
    Thin bit cut deep and clean on green birch. Ample striking surface for pounding soft wedges. Choke up to extended shoulder to split kindling for good balance. Seems to hold a decent edge so far. Easy to carry in an aluminum scabbard.

    Best lopper ever!
    These things are great, if you need to trim limbs, brush, undergrowth you want a pair of these, I've got two and I love them and they have lasted for years.

    Nice Pocket Saw
    This is nice saw to have for those little prunning duties I have where bringing out a chain saw is not needed. Had it for awhile and still sharp and works great.

    great survival tool
    Ive had mine for 4 years now. I used it all the time doing tree work, and now keep it in my truck for use on limbs keeping salvage at bay. I did break the tip off of it. I'm sure that I over worked it. I've used it on tree limbs, pvc pipes, tires, the list goes on. Love it!

    Nice little hand saw
    This is perfect to have around for those little jobs around the property when you don't want to fuss with power tools to get things done. Also this is great to have while camping when you're preparing your camp site. When the chainsaw is overkill, and the looper just doesn't have what it takes, then get this guy out and go to work.
