Rated 3 out of 5 by from pole trimmer 56 C Love the trimmer, easy to use, but after using one time cutting 2 small limbs I put it in my garage and when I came out the following day I had a puddle of chain lube on the garage floor. It did not turn over it just leaked out. Not happy about that! I have 4 other Stihl products and no problems!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to maneuver in close brush Found a super deal at my local Stihl Dealer. Have about 10 miles of lanes to keepup and this item fits the bill.Really like the easy start.And balanced so that a guy whose is 75 can swing it around without getting tired.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Overall good saw, I just have a word of warning about the chains The overall quality of the product is amazing. It starts easy and pleasant to use, but I wish I knew how hard it is to find replacement chains before buying it. I don't want to call a dealer to order then drive all the way there every time I need a chain. On top of all that they cost 3x as much as chains for competing saws. Baileysonline has them in stock but charge a fortune for shipping.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great saw Wow......this pole saw is awesome and for a great price....never had a power tool start so easy....I have other Stihl saws, but this is by far the easiest to start....a child could start it, so lock it up.It is well balanced and makes short work of any job.Its also easy and safe to cut any limbs on the ground as your hands and body are 6 or 7 feet from the actual chain saw.This saw is a winner. My Stihl dealer Chappell tractor in Milford NH had it all set up and gassed up when I picked it up...not going to find that service in a big box store

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product at an awesome price After the first time I used the pole saw I wondered why it took me so long to purchase one. Great power makes cutting the edges of shooting lanes quick and easy. Being able to break the unit down into two pieces makes it easy to transport on a UTV or ATV. I can't say enough to good things about this pole saw! Thanks STIHL!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Pull strign breaks frequently. Pull string has broken twice with maybe 20 hours on the saw. No odd stresses or anything. Starts pretty easy when the string is good. Can't remove the cover with my standard size tools so will have to look for the right size. 10 hours and a trip to a dealer is truly dismal quality and performance for an expensive saw. It is likely I could get better reliability out of a much cheaper piece of equipment. Great saw when working. Poor reliability.
