Rated 3 out of 5 by Too heavy Purchased this saw last year, used several times, but totally too heavy to cut over a couple of limbs at 12'. June 24, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by My wife thought it was just for the house :) I purchased this to trim trees at home and trimmed two River Birchs ,two Oaks and a Poplar. This was so much better than a hand pole saw. I then took it to where I lease too deer hunt and put up a tripod stand. I was able to trim limbs from the platform out 12 feet to open up a shooting lane.I also was able to cut the top out of a tree while standing on ground. I now consider this a must have when loading up to set up stands for deer season along with my Stihl 028 chain saw I've had since '94 that stills runs as good as the day I got it. June 23, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Saw Great all around pole pruner. It is heavy burt extremely durable. I would recommend using the harness/vest attachment for it. The strap works but if you are pruning a lot of things the vest will distribute the weight better. May 26, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Overall good product. Lowered dependability rating because it is hard to crank-cold. Overall good product. Mine is only 10 days old, used it for about a total of 5 hours off and on during that 10 days. Problem is it is very difficult to crank when it is cold, Just bought a Stihl chain saw a week ago and it cranks much easier when cold. May 24, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by I have not owned a Stihl before, but knew the reputation. I have not had any problems with my 131, and I believe it has already paid for itself. The 131 performs to my expectations. The only issue I have is the weight factor. I have trimmed and removed trees and this saw does it all. I will buy more Stihl products. April 10, 2014

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great out of the box!!! Worked perfectly from the start on its first use. Tried it this last December on a few trees to get the feel of it. will give it a real workout this spring when the weather gets better. February 12, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Not the quality that I expected from years of Stihl products I have used Stihl products for years and totally stand behind them, but the 131 pole saw I got was not satisfactory. I ran 6 tanks of gas through it in about 5 months and it started to run (not run) poorly. My local saw shop did all the tests and the carb needed to be replaced and it was leaking around the valves. I still don't know if warranty will cover it. I found an HT 75 at a garage sale for a very reasonable price and am putting the 131 on craigs list! The 2 stroke motor seems to be superior, screw the emissions standards! I am not a novice to saws/power equipment, I have been a professional timber cutter and tree service person since 1978. I still swear by Stihl products, especially 044 and 440 chainsaws although I don't much care for the 441. February 1, 2014
