    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.

    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!

    This is a wood smashing beast!
    Huge face for driving my wedges. Awesome sleeve for over strikes. Excellent head attachment. Makes me feel like Thor when I'm using it. Not for wimps. Super satisfying feel when using compared to all the other mauls I have ever used. Hook on end of ax face is super handy. An instant favorite tool of mine. Just get it and swing it like you mean it. You'll be glad you did.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    perfect tool for the outdoorsman
    Excellent handling and striking force. Used it to take down our Christmas tree this year. Perfect easy chopping even with one arm swing do to rotator cuff tear in shoulder. Highly recommended!

    The ultimate splitting tool
    I have finally found the ultimate ax for splitting hardwood. In over than 50 years splitting firewood this is IT. Heavy enough to split large cuts, but well balanced to conserve effort. The head penetrates well without sticking, therefore, reducing number of strikes needed to complete split. No vibration noticed, just a joy to use.

    Very functional.
    burning firewood for years never a machine log splitter hand splitting since I can remember. have bought brand new splitting axe and broke within less than two chords never once hit the neck of the shaft on a log split handle all the way up not very happy. but took the stehl axe out in the first couplei hits I was completely blown away impressive control accuracy power

    Typical Stihl quality
    Very well built . Another 4-6 inches of length in the handle would work better for me . Since this is shaped more like an axe than a maul , it tends to " stick " in a block of wood rather than blow it apart . As long as you can pick up both the axe and block and smash it down until split you're fine . If you stick it in a big block of wood that is too big to pick up you gotta wrestle this axe out and that ain't easy. If you've got big stuff to blast apart you may be better off with one of the ... read more mauls This thing will make quick work of small and medium blocks though.

    Lightweight and a pleasure to use!
    The PL 40 Lopper is a very durable,lightweight tool that does the job with ease. You will be amazed at the little effort it takes to cut branches up to 2" in diameter. What I like the most about the PL 40 is the aluminum handles that make it so light. Believe me, this tool is no lightweight when it comes to pruning branches. GREAT value for the price!
