    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.

    I have gone through several other brands of pole pruners and this one tops them all. Its extended reach is astounding. It cuts through anything. Its expensive but well worth it. I don't really like how the lopper attachment comes with such a short rope and it doesn't even come attached but thats a simple fix. Just have to buy a longer rope.

    Long pole, short work.
    I purchased this produce a week ago. My father had one (72 year old) and strongly recommended it. I have to say it is a joy to use. We have 30 acres and while 25 is pasture, that other 5 and around the house needs constant work. Until now I have had many limbs just taunt me, just out of reach for my chainsaw. Well they are now in the "to burn" pile. It works great, easy to start and cuts like a dream! My wife is worried that we wont have anything left standing. /shrug oh well. If you want ... read more something that will do what it is designed to do, get a Stihl.

    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 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.

    Super saw
    This pole pruner is a little pricey but you get a solid rugged piece of equipment for your investment. I am not a large person so maybe a larger person could handle it more easily than I. However, it gets the job done in good fashion although a bit fatiguing for a smaller and older person such as I. 5 ft. 6 in. and 63 years old. It extends very easily and has plenty of power. I was surprised how quickly it cuts thru 6 and even 8 inch oak limbs with ease.

    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.

    This saw is a branch & brush "scalpel"
    I bought the HT 101 for our farm and have been using it to clear thick brush from ditches and limbs from trees. It has proved very reliable and starts effortlessly. This IS the right tool for the job and it has increased my productivity at least 4 fold. One VERY nice feature is that it enables you to insert the saw - rather than yourself :-) - into large brush thickets, severe branches off near their base then simply pull them out. This feature alone justifies owning this tool, particularly when ... read more clearing blackberry or wild roses, let alone honeysuckle and other invasive species. The same holds true when trimming thorn trees like buckhorn, honeylocust and hawthorns PLUS you eliminate the need for a ladder! It's all GOOD.

    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.

    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 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.
