Rated 5 out of 5 by Very well balanced I bought this to replace an old Poulan and it is very well balanced. It performs and cuts better than I had expected. Would be nice if it had a "T" handle to give a little better control. June 2, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by awesome i am a home user, was looking for pole saw, Stihl came recommended from a friend who owns almost all the saws Stihl makes, i am only 150 lbs, very lean and thin person, even this one feels heavy after an hour of cutting, still i had so much fun with this saw. it starts with one pull almost all the time, easy2start makes starting so easy i think my 10 yr old daughter can start it. once started it cuts branches like butter, nothing will be able to stop this saw, i have cut oak~pine with ease. i would recommend this pole saw over any other brand at any time. after i was done with my backyard, i volunteered to clean up my friends backyard. too much fun!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Very Nice Pruner This pruner has typical Stihl quality even though they are very pricey. In saying that, I can't complain because you get what you pay for and you just can beat a Stihl. I won't buy anything else. If you can't afford one, save up until you can. I have been using them my whole life. You won't be disappointed. April 4, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good machine Cut through limbs like a hot knife through butter. Easy to start (after you figure it out). Lite enough to go up into a tree but power full enough to make the cut. I really like it. March 23, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by My HT 56 C-E poll saw is excellent for my home needs. My HT 56 C-E pole saw exceeded my expatiations for around our house needs. This is my seventh STIHL purchase in four years. Why did I not buy this Pole Saw sooner. Dw February 22, 2016

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
