    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.

    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.

    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.

    I know not everyone has enough trees to consider a purchase of this product. But if you do, trust someone with 22 years of experience with yard care. I just purchased this product, trimmed a tree like a joke. Took 10xs longer to move the brush to the truck. Wish I would've got 1 years ago, would've made my work easier and gave me abilities to reach out, and pick up jobs I have had to turn down in the past. I borrowed a cheap off brand from a co-worker, and I decided I wanted a pole pruner, but I ... read more was ready for for a Stihl. I also have Stihl trimmer, blower, chainsaw, & tiller.

    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.

    Best "chainsaw on a stick" that I have ever owned or used.
    We try to maintain over 200 oak trees on our place. Over the past 10 years or so, I have gone through several "cheap" pruners and chainsaws. We were spending as much time working on the tools as we were working with them. The HT 131 is heavy as compared to the others, but it is a lot more heavy duty and does not require near the maintenance. We are very satisfied with the tool and recommend it to anyone who wants a tool that will work with you and get the job done.

    Great, well built product
    Fantastic saw. Starts flawlessly. Good extension. Idles for extended time while shorting branches. Very quiet for a 2 stroke engine. As mentioned in previous reviews, it does get a little heavy.. A strap ( sling ) is supplied, but, the optional harness is best for extended usage.. Need to pay attention when replacing chain due to different bar gauge,s and link configuration..( low profile etc. ) I would recommend this saw to anyone. This is more of a professional series unit, hence the higher ... read more price. They do have a homeowners unit at substantially less... I have cut many red and white oak and branches up to 11+ inches with no problem whatsoever.... It puuuuurs...

    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.

    Stihl Quality
    I bought this pole pruner for my birthday as I have 75 acres of trees of which 20 acres are along a fence adjacent to a road. These are fast growing pines that need to have their branches trimmed pretty routinely as they hang over the fence. I've been doing this with a manual pole pruner and it has been getting really old really fast. This tool made quick and easy work of the chore for sure. It is easy to start and has been just as reliable as my 16 year old 029 Stihl chain saw. I have always ... read more been a firm believer to spend your money wisely and get quality in the beginning and this is another example of that. This saw cut through the branches like a warm knife through butter. Love it!!!
