Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent pole saw! Very happy with this pole saw. Has made trimming the trees not only easier, but enjoyable! September 15, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Worth The Money Purchased this to keep up my hunting camp. Makes short work of small trees and isn't too heavy if you use the supplied strap. I've had many gas powered yard tools and I've never owned one that is as reliable as this Stihl, starts every time! The split shaft is great for transporting in my little Subaru. Not sure if Stihl makes other attachments for this, but I don't regret the purchase. August 21, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by HandyManStever best friends with Stihl As a handyman I find myself at different jobs with different requirements weekly. Recently I was asked to do some trimming for a rental one of my customers owns. This pole saw did 70% of the work allowing me to finish 8 hours of work in 6 hours. Love my tools, love my Stihls.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Quality and Dependability Spent some time reading reviews on home grade pole saws and found excellent reviews for the Stihl 56 CE. The reviews appear to be right on...starts easily usually on the first pull, high quality construction, easy to use. This review is based on 4-5 hours use. A little pricier than other brands but I think I made the wise choice. July 26, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wouldn't be without it This thing starts easy and has plenty of power. I keep finding more uses, like getting a stubborn tree to lay down without putting myself at risk. Great for pruning. July 7, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by A very useful product that is well built I bought the HT 56 based off of all the positive reviews. I used it to cut three small/medium trees down. I was able to reach up high on the trunk and make a cut to keep less of the tree to fall down on my house. I would not have been able to do this with a regular chain saw.The unit is well built and has a good power ratio for a 10" bar. I like the thinner chain than what comes on a regular chain saw for precision limb cuts. July 1, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very well balanced I bought this to replace an old Poulan and it is very well balanced. It performs and cuts better than I had expected. Would be nice if it had a "T" handle to give a little better control. June 2, 2016
