    Nice, real nice.
    This is a bad Mama Jama. For years I have needed this. I finally spent the money and have kicked myself in the butt for not doing it sooner. My place looks great. The equipment is easy use and has plenty of power. I'm looking forward to years of trouble free use.

    Right tool for the job!
    There are certain jobs that are awful if you don't have the right tool. If you have trees to trim, thickets to clear and limbs to remove and you have been using manual pole saws, you probably hate the job. The HT-100 is light weight and well balanced, and has more than enough power to tackle anything that the bar length will handle. The biggest problem you'll have is picking up all the limbs you can cut in an afternoon! Reliable engine, over engineered durability. Very well balanced and easy to ... read more maneuver. I have two chains...one for regular trimming and one for close-to-ground cutting of small stumps, which can dull any chain quickly. Keep the chain properly tensioned and the debris-chute clear and you can work all day with this machine.

    Great gas pruner
    The HT 100 is a well powered, light weight pruner that is very dependable. For one of the less expensive models, it has plenty of power to bring down large branches. When you hit the throttle you can feel the power of this pruner. It does not mess around when it comes to doing a good job for you. I was so pleased, after I sold my lawn care business, I bought another one. You will not be disappointed.

    Great saw
    I'm a homeowner with a large yard and many trees. I also own some farm/hunting land, much of which is forested. I got this pole saw about a month ago, after doing much research. The build quality of this saw is better than the competition and the power is superior. It starts very easily and is easy to handle, although working it at full extension will give you a workout. It seems a little overpriced, but if it lasts as long as other Stihl chainsaws I've owned, then it'll be worth it. I really ... read more like the saw--it's just what I needed.

    I've loved mine for many years!
    I bought the first pro pruner my dealer got into stock MANY years ago. It has been used often and been carefully and well-maintained: it only recently failed to the point of needing a machine shop to make a repair piece (because the saw is so old the part is no longer available). I'm considering buying another as I don't want to wait for the repair to finish our current orchard job. Most definitely the right tool for the overhead job. There have been small irritations like a leaky oil ... read more reservoir, but nothing that would keep me from buying another when I need it.

    Should have purchased this saw many years ago.
    Next to the zero turn mower this pole saw is the best investment I have made in a long time. I have had it for six days now and used it every day without any issue at all. Will use it this fall to start and clear fence lines on the farm that I have been meaning to do for years. Showed it to a fellow farmer yesterday and he was so impressed he went up the road and ordered one for himself. Nothing bad to say about this saw and I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a good commercial duty pole saw.

    This saw makes me look good every time I use it!
    Cutting trees and limbs that are right up against buildings, or could fall on objects, are easily dismantled from the top down and safely brought down. It's like having an 18 foot long surgeons scalpel and people are amazed when they see it in action. This is a professional quality tool and the best pole saw that I've ever used.

    Absolute BEST Pole for Manual Pruning!
    This PP 800 is a killer telescoping pole: Lightweight and sturdy/strong at the same time. The 18 foot pole is REALLY 18 feet long (not like some other pole makers that calculate in the additional height of the person using it). So, add in about half your height, and you'll actually get a 20' to 22' reach. It's actually a joy to use because it doesn't bend or wobble - you can be very precise with your cutting. I've been through a few other polesaws and this one is a serious professional pole ... read more compared to any of the others. To finish your pole system out, get the ** PS 80 Arboriculture Saw attachment, and the ** Pole Pruner Lopper Attachment. The Saw and Lopper are both top notch pro tools as well! Can't be beat. No hesitation - Get it!

    Not a toy!
    This makes every other pruner look like a toy. More importantly it works awesome! Its length is easy to adjust and the blade bites into the branch. The lightweight and sturdiness make it more than easy to use. It is a joy!

    Works Great for Me!
    Bought the HT101 a month ago. I've used it to maintain a large common area for a HOA. Sarts on the first pull every time. Cuts like butter. I had a competitors unit previously that always got stuck in cuts and bogged down. The Stihl powers right through. The only thing I could say I don't love about it is the bottom is narrow and it is top heavy when sitting in the bed of a pickup. That causes it to tip over in transit. It doesn't leak fuel or bar oil when this happens so, its not a big deal.

    Great pole pruner
    This is a great tool to have in your arsenal, from landscaping to logging. If your cutting a trap line or shooting lanes for your hunting stand, this is a must have! Once you use this machine, you will be kicking your self for not buying it earlier. I know I certainly did. The only draw back is the steep price tag on it.

    This pole pruner rocks!
    I have about 1/2 mile of creek bank that I am clearing all the undesirable brush from and leaving only hardwoods. This pruner is really yielding some outstanding and professional looking results. It is nice to safely prune all the trees on my property so that the roll bar on my tractor will clear all limbs and allow me to mow up close. The pruner starts easily and just rips through the branches under its own weight. It comes with a shoulder sling that really helps as the tool is a bit heavy. I ... read more can see where the harness accessory would be a wise investment if you are going to use this tool for more than a few branches in one outing.

    My go-to tool for trees
    Love, Love, Love this pruner! A must-have for tree trimming. I have run over them with my truck & still works like a charm. The tool that comes up missing because everyone else wants to use it.

    Great for reaching branches in high places.
    I purchased the PP100 several years ago to prune branches on my property. It has proven to be an excellent hand tool for trimming and for reaching those hard to get branches. I would recommend the PP100 for those that demand HIGH QUALITY tools in their arsenal! You will be amazed at the size branches this tool will handle. Very useful tool!

    Typical Stihl Quality
    Bought this to trim some branches that I had to keep moving out of my way when mowing my lawn. Sliced through Red Oak limbs like they were nothing. Very sharp, great quality. A little pricey, but a lifetime warranty goes a long way to offset the price.

    This product is the best
    I am 60 years old, obese, and have a lot of large mature trees. I bought this pruner 4 years ago, works great, branches cut like butter. I also purchased a third pole to reach even higher branches. The saw blade has yet to go bad after many many hundreds of branches cut, some 5" thick. The pruner cuts 1" thick branches easily. Easy to handle, light weight, cuts fast, and still works like new after many years. You will not be disappointed purchasing this.

    Very well made, high quality pole pruner
    I bought the PP 900 a few years back and use it quite regularly on my tree covered lot. It has a very good blade on it for effortless cutting of limbs. I also like the fact that you can get replacement parts if you need them. The unit is expensive, but you get what you pay for! STIHL has done their research on this tool! I HIGHLY recommend the PP 900.
