Rated 5 out of 5 by Wouldn't be without it This thing starts easy and has plenty of power. I keep finding more uses, like getting a stubborn tree to lay down without putting myself at risk. Great for pruning. July 7, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by A very useful product that is well built I bought the HT 56 based off of all the positive reviews. I used it to cut three small/medium trees down. I was able to reach up high on the trunk and make a cut to keep less of the tree to fall down on my house. I would not have been able to do this with a regular chain saw.The unit is well built and has a good power ratio for a 10" bar. I like the thinner chain than what comes on a regular chain saw for precision limb cuts. July 1, 2016
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
