Professional Pole Pruners

Power through your workday! When overgrown branches loom overhead, reach for the power and versatility of STIHL professional pole pruners. They feature the same German-engineered technology found in our chainsaws, giving you confidence in every cut.

Choose between fixed-length and telescoping shafts that reach up to 16’ of branch-cutting potential. And don’t expect these pruners to be shy on the power. They’ll cut through difficult wood without tearing through your budget. Their fuel-efficient, low-emission engines mean fewer refuels and lower fuel costs.

And since you have better things to do than fiddle with tool maintenance, our professional pole pruners are designed to be as hassle-free as possible. In addition to our STIHL-manufactured OILOMATIC® saw chains and Ematic™ guide bar technology, these professional models also include automatic bar and chain oilers, as well as side-access chain tensioners. We build our pruners to be dependable, so you can get more work done. More work. Less fiddle.

Professionals turn to STIHL professional pole pruners for cutting those hard-to-reach areas. When overgrown branches loom overhead, professional pole pruners from STIHL answer with power, dependability and versatility. They have to, since our pole pruners feature the same German engineered technology found in our legendary chainsaws. Here are the features you’ll find on every STIHL professional pole pruner:

  • Patented Low Emission, Fuel-Efficient Engine reduces exhaust emissions while saving on fuel costs.
  • Clip for Strap or Harness enables more even weight distribution and greater comfort.
  • Ematic™ Guide Bar includes a polymer ramp reservoir which holds bar oil until it can be picked up by passing chain. This can reduce oil usage by up to 50%.
  • Automatic Bar and Chain Oiler allows the operator to concentrate on cutting rather than bar and chain lubrication.
  • Side-Access Chain Tensioner for easy chain adjustment.
  • STIHL OILOMATIC® saw chain is manufactured exclusively by STIHL.
  • Ergonomic Design reduces fatigue and enables comfortable operation.
  • Reduced Vibration for enhanced user comfort.

  • Easy-Access Air Filter allows for easy filter cleaning or replacement.
  • Electronic Ignition provides easier starting and smoother running.
  • Heavy-Duty Steel on Steel Clutch helps reduce slippage and provides durable, long-lasting wear.
  • High-Tech Polymer Housings are lightweight, withstand greater impact and are corrosion resistant.
  • Long-Life Engine Cylinders provide optimal cooling, lubrication and more power output per cubic centimeter of engine displacement for maximum wear life.
  • Protected Choke Lever/Knob helps prevent damage.
  • Protected or Enclosed Control Cables eliminate dangling and loose wires.
  • Protected Spark Plug is protected yet easy to change.
  • Protected Throttle Trigger helps prevent damage.
  • Spark Arrester Muffler has large baffles which reduce noise level and contains a screen designed to reduce the emission of sparks.
  • Throttle Trigger Interlock helps prevent accidental acceleration.
  • Upright Translucent Fuel Tank allows operator to easily check fuel level before starting work. Upright position makes it easier to refill.
