Rated 5 out of 5 by Great tool! I bought this pruner after trying to find a safe way to use my chain saw to remove some high limbs. I do not regret my purchase, the safety of standing on the ground is well worth the price of this tool. And it has worked flawlessly up to this point. I do recommend having someone help you drag away the limbs while you cut, it will save a ton of time because you can cut a lot of branches faster than you think. September 24, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Pay a little more but get a lot more. This pole saw was so much better than any I had ever owned. It cranks so easily and more importantly stays running afterward. The saw had plenty of power for the 10" blade. It idles fine and when you hit the throttle it responds really well and is much quieter than any of my previous pole saws (which were not STIHL). Will never waste my time and money on any other brand in the future. July 25, 2015

Rated 5 out of 5 by Can't believe I didn't get one sooner. Easy to use, Stihl reliabilty local store gave great safe instructions on use. I have put my new yard toy to work, love it. Should have purchased one sooner. May 5, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fantastic Value i bought this Pruner a few days ago to remove a couple if overgrown trees on my property. My aim was to uaebthe pruner to remove the branches and then use my stihl chainsaw to remove the 5" tree trunk. Removing all of the tree branches with my brand new pruner was a breeze and accomplished in 10 minutes. I then planned to fire up my chainsaw to remove the tree trunk. Before shutting off the pruner, i tried to saw through the 5" trunk. With minimal effort, the pruner ate through the oak tree trunk. Truly amazing. I didn't realize that i had actually purchased as self contained tree remover for small trees! I'm very satisfied with my purchase, and recognize the true value of this pruner. April 8, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by A great Saw I purchased this saw due to a wind storm that had partially knocked down about 80 trees on my property which posed a very serious situation. All of the trees were just out of reach of being able to use a regular chainsaw and laying against other trees about 14 feet off the ground. I spent about 4 weeks cutting limbs and knocking down the trunks close enough to the ground to be able to finish with a regular saw. To my surprise, I didn't even need to get out the regular chainsaw. This thing worked awesome it sliced through everything I threw at it including tree trunks that were up to 18" in diameter. I cut what must have been 30 cords of wood and never even dulled up the chain. Mind you I was doing all of this in -10 to -25f temps.After that chore was completed, I decided to use my pole saw to cut up an old barn that was half caved in. Again it worked awesome for this purpose as I could stay far enough away from things as they came tumbling down. Not until I found a nail did the chain even become dull. My only complaint is that none of the local dealers stocked a replacement chain for this particular saw. But they gladly ordered it for me.Overall an awesome purchase and I will be looking at some other Stihl products this summer!!!! April 7, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by The saw is well balanced and not very loud. There are a lot of pole saws on the market these days. Most are corded and some are battery driven. You are limited by the length of your extension cord or the size of your battery. Stihl has the only motor driven pole saws that looked worth owning. November 8, 2014
