    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.

    Love it
    Yes this item is expensive. BUT when you look at renting a different brand model of the same specs and not finishing your job in two days, and you can use this for how long and whenever you want, it really isn't expensive in the long run. Just one pruning by the professionals once a year easily pays for this model. It really does extend a great length. Great for pruning branches that hit you in the head when mowing, cracked storm damaged high up branches that may fall later and injure someone, ... read more and yearly pruning. The power of this unit is something to be admired. Makes jobs REALLY quick. I would easily buy it again

    I use this more than my chainsaw
    I was a little shocked at the price of this saw once I bought it. Little did I know that on my first job it would pay for itself in the time it saved. I am the envy of my block and all my neighbors have asked me to come help out since I was equipped to handle the tough jobs they couldn't do safely from a ladder. I highly recommend this pruner. It is versatile enough to do any job I throw at it and powerful enough to handle the daily load I put it under as a professional.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    This saw has plenty of power
    I owned a pole pruner for several years, not from Stihl, and was very dissatisfied with the power and ability to cut limbs out of my trees. The pruner broke down and I had the occasion to go to a Stihl, dealership for the other vendors parts and saw a Stihl HT 100 Pole Pruner and decided I would buy it rather than trying to fix my other product. Wow! What a difference working with the Stihl Pole Pruner as there was much better power and balance in the Stihl pruner. I will never go back to ... read more another brand and this Stihl HT 100 is fantastic to work with.

    Starts, runs and cuts great. Perfect for keeping all your cutting on the ground.
    One thing that is great about this saw is how beautifully it starts up and idles. It is so easy to use you will get a lot of work done quickly.

    Best pole saw made
    This saw is way above the competition. Ive used every pole saw know to man and the stihl cutting speed and rigidity of the saw blade are the best in the business. They dont last forever but thats the nature of this business, we wear out everything. Ive purchased 7 of them for my tree company so far. Highly recommended.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Wish I had paid the high price years ago
    Over the years I've purchased half a dozen pole mounted saw and clipper devices from those with ratcheting gears, long leverage arms, etc. NOTHING comes close the Stihl. Take care around the clipper blade. The first thing mine cut was the back of my knuckle as I pulled it from the packaging. I didn't feel the cut it was so sharp, and it effortlessly glides through sapwood limbs. With two hands on the rope and the pole against the trunk or a leg you can cut any living oak limb that will fit into ... read more the mouth of the cutter. The blade does not flex and makes a clean cut all the way through it's arc. I also bought the longest saw blade for its longer cutting stroke and to allow cutting larger diameter limbs. It has amazingly efficient teeth and the perfect angle. One or two pulls and it creates a deep enough groove to allow cutting on the pull AND push stroke. The little nub/stopper on the end prevents pulling the blade all the way through. A feature I didn't realize I wanted until I tried it. In a careless moment I left it in the fall area of a tree and the blade was bent over 90 degrees. However, when I freed the blade, it snapped back and remains straight as the day it was purchased. From the chainsaw protective chaps the screen faced hard hat, to all the chainsaws, chains, bars, Weed and Brush trimmers, oils and parts, there is no other "brand" that I have grown to trust so totally and across the entire product line. If they made cars, guns or anything else, I would be among the first buyers no matter the price.
