    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!

    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.

    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.

    Perfect hand saw for trimming limbs.
    I've had my PS 60 Pruning Saw for the last five years and it is still as sharp as when I bought it! It has a very comfortable hand grip and seems to be just at the right angle to make cutting almost effortless. The saw carrier is well made and easy to wear on your belt. If you don't want to get the chainsaw out to cut small branches, get yourself one of these,it's a real time saver.

    Outstanding Axe with Excellent Craftsmanship
    I recently purchased this axe. The first thing I noticed was the quality. I used it to split 24" to 36" red oak logs without issue. The axe exceeded my expectation as it split the wood with no problem virtually blowing the wood apart. The design allows for the axe to power its way through the wood. The quality of the steel and the excellent edge allow for this axe to out perform any other axe I have ever used. This axe consistently powers its way through anything that I have thrown at it. The ... read more quality of the axe is beyond comparison. Everything from the hickory handle, the overstrike protection and the craftsmanship of the blade put this axe in its own class. Another incedible product from Stihl.

    I was skeptical at first....
    I was skeptical at first. I do most of spitting with a hydraulic spliter and also use a maul when I am just spitting a small quantity. With that said, the Stihl Pro Splitting Axe is the best investment I've made when it comes to splitting firewood. I was even able to split a few pieces of Osage Orange which are very difficult to manually split. They were not much of a challenge for this tool. I'm sold and very happy with my purchase.

    Fine Piece of Axe
    I bought this and a Splitting Maul. This axe outperforms the Maul by Far. Although its not made to take a blow like the Maul would be. It is not necessary. This axe has a substantial weight and edge to plough through the toughest of wood. We have an outdoor burner that takes a log bigger than 1 man could lift. This axe was able to split the majority of the oversized stuff (24+" dia x 30" length) usually in less than 10 blows. Sure its a workout, but why pay to go to a gym when theres wood to be split.

    Handy saw
    Riding ATVs for years, I don"t leave the shed without one of these in the tool box. I've cut trees up to 5 inches with this saw, you have to work from different angles, but you can open up that trail instead of heading back. these are great saws and you need one if you go out side for yard work or trail riding. Just get yourself one and see how good it really works.

    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.

    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.

    It does what it was intended to do. I simply bought it because it was made by Stihl.

    Good head weight and the handle is the right length.
    I've used my hatchet now for about 8 years has worked great for everything. Could've been sharper when it was new. The handle has taken some damage and I would like get a new handle and put it on my self is there a way I can do this with out going to the dealer. The dealer want to repair it for me for warranty purposes. I take care of my tools and know how to install a new handle, please help me in any way.

    An excellent axe.
    This axe is extremely well built. I had to do a minor amount of sharpening when I got it, but it took a razor sharp edge and holds it well. The shape is good for general purposes, but leans towards chopping more than splitting. It's a good size for my needs; Small enough to fit in a backpack for camping, but big enough to take with me car camping or to process wood at the house. I haven't used it a huge amount, but it's holding up well so far.

    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.
