Rated 5 out of 5 by Very good pole saw With a lot of trees and shrub in the front and back yard, this saw does exactly what I expect. From tall trees, to short shrubs, it works great! July 31, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Makes a tough job easier. Due to some physical limitations brought on by injuries over the years I can no longer climb trees to trim them. While the pole saw is not cheap in price or quality. It is a tool that gets the job done. I along with my adult son used it to clear limbs so that we could gain access for a 13' tall RV into our place in the country. The saw performed flawlessly and was also good on fuel consumption. Bar oil was also used at a economical rate. Bottom line. While I initially balked at the price. This saw in my comparisons beats the other brands for value. The reason I didn't score it higher in the three categories is because of the short time I've owned it. Buy one. I believe you will be happy with it. May 23, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Nothing but trouble since I bought it This wasn't cheap and I've had nothing but trouble with it since I bought it. I've hardly used it at all. I've used it 3 times in the past 18 months and 2 out of those 3 times the chain mechanism wouldn't engage. I've kept is safe in storage when not in use. The customer service was very good - my dealer is a good guy and he is very fair. It is possible I got a lemon. May 20, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good pruner Bought this after comparing with competing brands for its power, reach and previous experience with other Stihl products. The quality is there as always and the unit runs very well. April 26, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Pole saw HT101 This is a heavy duty pole saw with plenty of power for all jobs. The only issue I have is the weight, it is extremely heavy especially when fully extended. The single shoulder strap included helps but be sure you have plenty of upper body strength before buying this pole saw. April 5, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very versatile tool This saw is certainly great for limbs and overhanging branches but it also works well for then cutting up the cut wood. it is powerful and cranks evry time. I'm very pleased with it and the versatility so far. April 4, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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 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. March 3, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by HT 101 True story: During a severe thunderstorm in summer 2013, lightning struck a walnut tree and fell in my yard. After waiting a day for the sun to dry up the land, my neighbor and I attacked the tree with this (HT 101) and my MS211 chainsaw. This pruner saw "cut" our time by more than half by pruning the branches away so we could get to the trunk/base. When we were done I said to myself: "This pruner saw just paid for itself with today's work!"Now I can proceed to the review: This saw fires up on the first pull everytime! The chains are fast and powerful, even if it is a 12 inch bar. I purchased the HT Support System and that also is very nice to own with this saw: it handles almost ALL the weight and is still easy to maintain control of the saw. This is certainly not a saw for all homeowners, but since I live on a farm in a wooded area this comes mighty handy when faced with a felled tree or a stuck one.While I noted that it is sometimes awkward to handle, that is referring to the saw fully extended without the HT Support System. Even then it really isn't that difficult! December 8, 2013
