Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Pole saw This pole saw is very powerful and efficient. It gets the job done and the extension pole part of it operates flawlessly. Very easy to operate and maneuver. The pole saw harness is a must and designed for this saw but sold separately. Easy to start every time and doesn't use much fuel or oil. I really like the way my saw has performed.Without the harness it is heavy and kind of awkward to use. May 24, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Cuts great Bought it for trimming overhanging branches over the driveway and house. Its a lot safer than getting on the ladder and it cuts really good. I don't remember my regular chainsaws cutting this good. Its a little heavy so a small person might have a problem handling it but you get what you pay for. Its built to last and that is why I bought a Stihl. No problems with it and it starts real easy. At the store before I bought it they did find that the guy that assembled it did not put it together right (chain on backwards) and the motor did not connect to the saw. The square drive was not engaged and was corrected before I took it home. March 27, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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, and yearly pruning. The power of this unit is something to be admired. Makes jobs REALLY quick. I would easily buy it again March 4, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Get off the ladder and get this pole trimmer! We have a lot of trees at our Central Texas lake front property and my wife has been after me for a while to get off the ladder and get a pole trimmer. I have resisted buying due to the cost. She finally bought this one for me for Christmas, and I'm glad she did! I have several hours on it so far and it is great. It cuts through dead oak limbs like a warm knife through butter, powering through limbs several inches thick in seconds. The length is easily adjustable and the power is awesome. It is fairly heavy, but the shoulder strap helps balance the weight. The extended reach of this trimmer will eliminate needing to cut from a ladder for most of my trimming and will be much safer. I have two other Stihl chain saws, including one over 30 years old that still runs like a champ, and this pole trimmer is a great addition. February 12, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Last Pole Saw You'll Ever Buy I have used various brands of gas and electric pole saws and needed one with more reach. I knew going into the saw shop that these were high dollar saws but after holding and using this saw it is worth every dime! The build quality is above excellent. This saw will cut every other saw I've every had to pieces! December 29, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by If you have a lot of tall trees this is the ticket! Got myself this trimmer for Christmas. What a machine. A little heavy but you have to expect that with the telescoping length I am almost 66 years old, if I can handle it so can you young ones! Buck up! If you are looking for a trimmer that can reach out and touch those branches large or small this is it. Very good machine. Operates better than I anticipated. December 26, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Blade won't turn Brand new. Just bought it. Has NEVER hit a piece of wood/branch yet. The chain won't move. Well, It did, briefly. As motor warmed up, after I got it idling properly, checked bar oil, everything. I touched the trigger and the chain turned as expected. Back into idling as I put on my goggles, etc.. picked it up, walked to a low-hanging branch, touched the trigger....nothing. Have tried loosening chain, tightening chain. You can move it easily by hand. The sprocket spins by hand. Nothing.Little help, please. October 2, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by WORTH THE MONEY 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 was ready for for a Stihl. I also have Stihl trimmer, blower, chainsaw, & tiller. July 22, 2015
