    You'd think it was gas operated!!
    I've never split wood in my life until today. This maul is worth every penny. I was concerned that it may be too light but it went through pine and aspen in no time. I split wood for 3 hours before I got tired. Mostly because it was so much fun to use! The collar on the handle is handy but be careful. Hit it just right and it'll give you a zinger!!

    Awesome
    Have been heating with wood for 20 years. It was a real debate to spend the money on this maul....until I used it, definitely worth the money. Using hardware store mauls the handles lasted about 2 cords of wood, this handle wont break. This maul hits and splits like a much heavier tool, and goes through knots etc. other mauls wont

    A wonderful tool!
    I'm not gonna brag and say I have been splitting wood for 40 years like some people. Because I've only been splitting for 4 yrs. This maul blows threw wood excellent. I wanted a quality splitting maul, and this is it. It makes the work so much easier than those cheap mauls. Great Spitting Maul!

    Very Sharp Hand saw.
    I use this to limb live oaks within reach in my yard. It works very well. I have cut branches up to 4 inchs and it worked flawlessly. It is light weight and extremely sharp. Mine states that it was made in Japan and the quality shows it. The blade has not bent even when a limb’s weight pinches it. The blade’s angle allows for powerful cutting stroke without putting your weight down. This allows the blade to do the work and reduces the chance of a pinch or bend. Since I am cutting wet wood ... read more I will tell you that you need to clean the blade before storage to avoid rust and gum-ups that will cause it to pinch.

    Superb Pruning Saw
    I own a 40+ acre property in the mountains of North Central Washington State with thousands of trees (aspen, ponderosa pine, Douglas fir, cottonwood, etc.). I purchased this pruning saw to trim the lower branches of the trees (in wildfire country we call them "ladder fuels"). This saw cuts cleanly and quickly through branches up to 3" in diameter, whether dry, wet or green. I also purchased a Stihl 900 Pole pruner to take care of larger and higher branches (the widow-makers). That allows me to ... read more cut branches and trim trees up to 15 or more feet off the ground. I have 4 Stihl chain saws and several other Stihl products. All are of superb quality (German engineering) and reliable. You never go wrong with a Stihl.

    Cuts with ease
    I just bought this saw and have been used it all day. Cuts very well with great ease. Unlike other cheaper saws that I have, this one doesn't bind. I recommend the leather sheath. The teeth are very sharp. I also like the saw for its fine cut. I will be going back to the supplier to get an additional PS 70.

    great survival tool
    Ive had mine for 4 years now. I used it all the time doing tree work, and now keep it in my truck for use on limbs keeping salvage at bay. I did break the tip off of it. I'm sure that I over worked it. I've used it on tree limbs, pvc pipes, tires, the list goes on. Love it!

    Nice little hand saw
    This is perfect to have around for those little jobs around the property when you don't want to fuss with power tools to get things done. Also this is great to have while camping when you're preparing your camp site. When the chainsaw is overkill, and the looper just doesn't have what it takes, then get this guy out and go to work.

    Another great axe from stihl.
    After purchasing the pro splitting maul I was anxious to get my hands on the pro splitting axe. It has lived up to its reputation. I have split several cords this year and can say it is rock solid. I will admit it is a touch heavy and a bit short for my liking but that is because I don't use a chopping block. I would imagine if I did it would be just the right length. Just something to consider if you split on the ground. All and all it is a great compliment to my maul. Between these two there ... read more isn't anything I can't split!

    Best warranty
    Did quite a bit of research before I bought this axe, for the price and warranty you cannot beat it. Tears through wood like a hot knife. Only complaint was the first axe I brought home, the screw in the head snapped when using. Brought it in to my local Ace, and they traded it straight across. Didn't have to wait for them to fix it. Love Stihl products and will continue to use them.

    They are light weight and balanced. They cuts like butter.
    I trim juniper bushes in our yard every fall. It usually takes me about a week but since I bought these sheers it took two and a half days. They cut like butter and easy to move around and trim. Should have bought them years ago but just found them.

    Very well made and razor sharp
    I recently moved and had bushes and shrubs that had been neglected for some time at the new house...bought these and made art out of a mess in no time...extremely sharp...hold an edge very well...i even cut branches a little too big for these shears and went right through it without a single mark on the blades....very light tool you will not get fatigued even after a couple hours of use..zero effort to get the cut you want...you always get what you pay for and at 3 times the price of junk wooden ... read more and plastic shears made in china I am confident I will get 10 times the usage out of them..stihl has never disappointed me...this although not made in usa is made in Japan which is known to have extremely top notch cutlery..don't turn your yard work into a nightmare with junk...buy this and don't look back

    These are terrific!
    After 8 years of heavy use, I had to throw my loppers away yesterday. I cleared riding trails, pruned up trees, cut brush, you name it, they performed! I am headed to buy a new looper this am. No other loppers compare.

    Works better than it should
    This may be the smallest lopper in the product lineup, but it can power through branches that should justify getting a different tool. It's small enough to be easy to wield, yet strong enough to cut almost anything that will fit in the jaws. Whether the wood is dry or green, this will cut it. After 5 years of use, I'm amazed I haven't been able to break it yet, despite my best efforts. All hand tools should be made this well.

    Stand up well to daily use in a 10 acre vineyard!
    I was a little concerned about the length of the handles until I used them the first time. They are very easy to maneuver because of the blade and hook design. You can get into very tight places in a vine canopy. These will cut!
