    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.

    Very helpful tool
    I purchased this pruner several years ago and it has been very useful with South Florida trees. I cut live oak, olive, various palm, and royal poinciana branches with great success. Reliability has been good very rarely had to take it back for tune ups. I found the non ethanol gas to be better. Some say its heavy, I think it is good exercise, but I am a big guy. It has saved me a lot in pruning costs. When the neighbors hear it, they all have favors to ask! Very important - Remember to wear ... read more your eye protection!!! The sawdust does blow around a bit.

    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.

    outstanding in every regard,..THE VERY BEST
    I have been looking for a pole saw for prunning my bur oaks, live oaks, and red oaks. This saw blade is the BEST,.cut through 4 and 5 inch limbs with ease. This saw is the way to Go! All other reviews are Spot On,....!

    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!

    This pole saw is great for those trees you don't wanna have to get ur climbing gear on for.
    Upper body strength is a must .saw is somewhat awkward to use.its easy to push the envelope w this saw. Shaft and power. Head difficult to avoid frequent damage. Probably best used minimize fatigue to self and saw. Using this saw from a ladder or rooftop ,something I don't recommend for the un skilled operator.however I highly recommend a hardhat and glasses. Pound for pound it's a good investment.i wouldn't loan it out to a neighbor though.

    Good saw
    Just bought my second one. First one lasted a little over a year using it every day and only reason I replaced it was because it got run over and the pole was broke. You can't beat Stihl saws they are the best on the market bar none. The HT 100 is no exception.

    I bought a Stihl chainsaw several years ago it proved to be the best I had ever used. Since I bought a hand held blower for my wife a backpack blower and the pole chainsaw pruner they are super ..the best!

    My wife thought it was just for the house :)
    I purchased this to trim trees at home and trimmed two River Birchs ,two Oaks and a Poplar. This was so much better than a hand pole saw. I then took it to where I lease too deer hunt and put up a tripod stand. I was able to trim limbs from the platform out 12 feet to open up a shooting lane.I also was able to cut the top out of a tree while standing on ground. I now consider this a must have when loading up to set up stands for deer season along with my Stihl 028 chain saw I've had since '94 ... read more that stills runs as good as the day I got it.

    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.
