    Great tool
    I just bought this tool and I have been use it for almost 2 months, i use it for very tricky rounds and it works great. Perfect ergonomics, nice balanced tool and very nice hickory handle, I think that the touch of Ochsenkopf axe company it's definitely obvious.. I'm very happy with the attachment system and the steel overstrike plate protection on the handle. Beautiful and functional tool, my conclusion is that this Axe do the job easier.

    The Envy of the Campground
    I am a volunteer host at a State Park in Vermont. As such I cannot use my chainsaws, or my 4 wheeler. I came upon a fairly good sized pile of bucked logs, and not being able to use my spliter either had a challenge on my hands. The challenge was offically eliminated last night when I took the first swing with this axe. It is by far the best axe that this former Boy Scout has ever swung. Maybe I won't miss my chainsaws all that much afterall.

    Packs a punch!
    I was amazed how effortless it was to cut off thick branches with this lopper. I felt like I did not have to use any excessive amount of force like other cheaper ones I bought in the past from the garden department of the the big box stores. This tool is well made and very lightweight. I was delighted by the ease of the handling and the rubber soft grips were very nice to hold onto. The blades are razor sharp!!!

    Great little snips
    Use these snips everyday during pruning season. Underpowered for larger stems but perfect for younger water saps.

    Best value I've seen
    I have bought and returned several small hatchets to do some limb splitting around the house. Most in this price range without dropping a ton of money on a Scandinavian one are dull as a marble. This one came with a nice edge, and it seems to be holding well; I took a file to it anyway and now it's fit to shave my whiskers. A couple of feedback items: I purchased this from an ACE Hardware dealer and it was covered in stickers. Certainly not STIHL's fault but I took quite a bit of paint off ... read more the hatchet getting them removed. Not that it should be, but be aware the paint is not chemically resistant. Secondly, it did come with a rubber sheath, and I would really like to see that listed on this page (and for all of their axes) under "accessories" as a stand-alone item. This hatchet feels like it will last a long time and I'd like to be able to continue to protect the edge.

    Perfect Axe Throwing Tool
    OK you axe throwing aficionados. This is the perfectly balanced ax for throwing. Sticks every time. Just take five paces back from your Target and throw. The bottom of the handle has that notch that just flips right off your fingers for the proper rotation and sticks every time so, if you're looking for the perfect target throwing axe, this is it. I have 22 throwing axes, now 23 and 4 targets made of Cottonwood trunks and cut down the middle Western Red Cedar power poles. Be careful. Purchase ... read more d at B&B Cyclery in Geneseo IL.

    Great hatchet, gives you a lot of bang for your buck.
    I have owned this hatchet for about two weeks now and I am pleasantly surprised with it. I purchased this to split kindling and small pieces of wood and it has done more than fulfill it's requirements. The only problems I have with this axe is that the steel is slightly soft and the handle will damage with even the slightest contact. Overall, I recommend this product for everyone from your average Joe to your firewood supplier.

    Excellent for all size hands
    I purchased these shears about two years ago and have used them on a regular basis. I am 6'2" with size XXL hands, and these fit me just as well as my wife, they are compact and feel like they are perfect for any size hands. I got the smaller size to be easier to maneuver around plants from top to bottom. These feel like they slice right through stems with ease, and I have yet to sharpen them. After each use, I wash them off with soap and water to avoid plant disease problems, leave them open to ... read more dry and oil them only once every couple of uses... very low maintenance and shows no wear after years of uses. I have yet to sharpen them. These are the last pair of shears I will ever buy, and recommend them to anyone. Very, very high quality, only gripe from anyone would be the price.... but you get what you pay for..... buy it once and never buy another pair. I will be sending a pair to a relative as a gift.

    Lasts longer on the job than the day is long...quality plus
    Best hand shears I have found. I purchased one of each size more for the job I am doing and not for my hand size. One piece of advice, purchase the black handle models. My opinion is that the orange handle models available at some Stihl outlets do not feel as well made. I hope they do not discontinue the former.

    best hand-held pruner available anywhere
    I can't praise Stihl's hand-held pruner enough. It's design is simple, extremely workable, light, and efficient. I LOVE using my Stihl pruner. I've used other pruners in the distant past but Stihl's pruner is the best by far. It is so good it really has no competitors. The same goes for their chainsaws. Outstanding quality.

    First Stihl lopper purchase
    I purchased these today having only ever used the cheaper made loppers, I was impressed. Lightweight, sharp and a good grip. I used them for about an hour today along a grown up fence row with all types of woody debris and vines and such. It made easy work of it.

    Lightweight and a pleasure to use!
    The PL 40 Lopper is a very durable,lightweight tool that does the job with ease. You will be amazed at the little effort it takes to cut branches up to 2" in diameter. What I like the most about the PL 40 is the aluminum handles that make it so light. Believe me, this tool is no lightweight when it comes to pruning branches. GREAT value for the price!
