    great saw!!!!!
    I am very impressed with the smooth cut and ease of stroke with this blade. The saw and sheath are so convenient, light wieght, and tough. I was disappointed with one major downfall, the leg strap is SOLD SEPERATELY!!! This makes no sense, when purchasing the blade, you would figure its a component of the sheath. Haven't found a single dealer that sells the leg strap. All in all the best pruning saw I have used, regardless of size. Easily manuvuered and cuts like its got a chain and motor.

    I'm a gardener
    This is a awesome saw. I where it on my belt everyday. Looks highly professional. Mine is 3 years old. Cuts so perfect and clean. I have another one on my kubota rtv for clearing trails. It's also perfect for backpacking. You will be more than pleased.

    Great hand saw
    There are days when I would rather hear the birds and the water rather than a chainsaw motor. On those days this saw is absolutely amazing to have. The blade on the saw is replaceable and the handle and sheath are well constructed. Overalll it is a great item.

    Stop buying cheap tools every year
    It seems like every year I have to buy a new maul, those cheap box store tools just don't last. Even after one use the head is loose or showing wear, I'm tired of it. I decided to spend some extra money and try a quality tool. Everything stihl makes that I own is a quality tool and they don't let you down with their axes and mauls. I bought a maul today and wow what a nice quality piece. Split over a cord of hard knotty red oak today and am very impressed with the maul. The steel is very hard ... read more and sharp, the handle is top quality hickory and most impressive is the overstrike collar. Very thick steel and even after a few nasty misses it doesn't dent or even mark. An overstrike on a cheap maul would snap most handles. Overall I am very impressed with the splitting capability of the maul but not surprised, stihl makes high quality tools that last . You won't regret this purchase, quit wasting money on cheap tools. There really is a difference

    Don't be scared of price, well worth it.
    From the moment you pick this maul up it becomes apparent this is a well crafted tool. I am currently splitting 18 inch wide dry ash rounds. With an old tire around them these large rounds are reduced to small pieces in no time. After splitting firewood for the past 25+ years I can easily say this is one of the best tools I have used. Excellent product.

    KaPOW!
    I had to re-learn how to split wood with this axe. Im so used to dropping a heavy swing and this monster just plows through Pinion and Ash like they aren't even there. even splitting unseasoned rounds is a breeze. best axe I have ever used.

    The ultimate splitting tool
    I have finally found the ultimate ax for splitting hardwood. In over than 50 years splitting firewood this is IT. Heavy enough to split large cuts, but well balanced to conserve effort. The head penetrates well without sticking, therefore, reducing number of strikes needed to complete split. No vibration noticed, just a joy to use.

    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.

    PP 70
    This hand pruner is the best I have ever used, let alone held! The locking feature is easy to unlock but is very secure when not in use. The price may scare some homeowners/landscapers away, but the quality of the blades are amazing and can be removed to be sharpened, unlike many professional hand pruners out there. Amazing hand pruner for all jobs, from cutting flowers to trimming small branches! I do recommend the hand pruner leather sheath for easy transport!

    Very nice.
    Great leverage and action. Light and strong. We have had 3 pairs. Sort of difficult to buy as local dealers don't all carry the hand tools.

    Awesome Forestry Axe!!!
    Wow what an axe, size, weight, balance and a Great 5 piece head design. I can't see this hickory handle ever breaking with this new long steel sleeve attached or the head ever coming off with this 5 piece system. Stihl did it again...one of a kind and another awesome product made in the USA. Thank you Stihl...

    Best Axe Ever!
    I bought this axe because my local dealer didn't have the Pro Splitting Axe in stock. Best axe I have ever owned. No other is even close. Splits smaller logs easily. The locking mechanism is impressive and you never feel the head move. The handle guide is study and large enough to protect from over strikes. I usually have buyers remorse but not on this axe. One of the best purchases I have ever made. I bought the Pro Splitting axe also and love it also.

    Awesome all around Axe.......
    After several months of using this Axe I'm am thoroughly impressed. I use it when Felling trees to drive wedges and it's great for limbing. It's always by my side while working in trees. The protection sleeve makes me worry less about an over strike and the weight is great.

    I feel certain that this fine product will provide many years of dependable service. It is a joy to use. You just can't go wrong with this saw.

    Perfect hand saw for trimming limbs.
    I've had my PS 60 Pruning Saw for the last five years and it is still as sharp as when I bought it! It has a very comfortable hand grip and seems to be just at the right angle to make cutting almost effortless. The saw carrier is well made and easy to wear on your belt. If you don't want to get the chainsaw out to cut small branches, get yourself one of these,it's a real time saver.
