Rated 5 out of 5 by from Major time saver I bought this attachment to go with the KM 111 r power head. It's a fantastic combination.I am used to seeing the big beefy chain on my 20" Stihl chainsaws and originally thought the small bar might be lacking in cutting ability. I was totally wrong. It cuts through everything quite well. I combined this with the steel version of the 37" extension. I later traded up to the carbon version and it is even more manageable. I used to trim limbs with a fiskars manual pole pruner and it's quite the chore. Now with this tool I get it done much easier and faster. Just a tip when pruning larger limbs, do a smaller undercut on the bottom of the limb and then cut from above. I experimented and now get really clean results and can control the direction the limb swings when cut. Chain stretch was fairly minimal but something you will want to check after the first few limbs. It's extremely simple to adjust with the provided tool. Make sure you keep a close eye on the bar oil. It works well but I got carried away trimming that I almost ran out before checking it the first time. One last cool use I found for this tool is that I use it to buck limbs on trees I've felled. I use it without the extension and it's a lot easier than bending over with my big saw. Overall I'm exceptionally pleased with this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product has everything you need to trim limbs I was really killling my arms and back cutting limbs with a manual saw, plus it took a long time. Then my wife bought me the STIHL Pole Pruner and it was heaven sent. No more long sawing back and forth with the manual saw ansd blade getting stuck. Now when I trim and prune limbs it's like a breeze with my new STIHL. Very dependable and starts right up first pull. I would highly recommend a STIHL Pole Pruner If you want to save time on your job and save your back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect tool. This was the perfect tool for cutting trees along fence rows. I cut some low hanging limbs as well allowing me to ride my tractor closer to trees.Con...the blade remained useful but I noticed the cutting speed slowed down....ez fox was to get a second chain and keep it moving.Great tool for my usage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing This and the Power Scythe were the reasons I bought the kombi system. The pole pruner has the extra length needed to get the difficult job done. Lightweight and powerful!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Engineer An Adjustable Angle Version Works well for 1" - 2" diameter branches but be careful with larger higher branches with inability to undercut a horizontal without an adjustable head. The limb tends to hinge and fall toward operator because the diagonal under and over cut. Definitely recommend this design as-is for some jobs because less moving parts equals less problems. However, I am hoping the stellar engineering department at STIHL combines the adjustability in their 135 degrees HL-KM hedge trims with a chainsaw head for the larger higher reach limbs. I will definitely buy it IF they read this and decide they want to market it. Keeping my fingers crossed. Thank you in advance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use and powerful. Since I am a small woman, I was a little worried about the weight of the unit but it is balanced and not that heavy at all. The chain stays tight and the oiler works great. I have only used it about three hours so far, so good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than a small chainsaw I have used mine several years and it has been more than expected. I use it on trails, around deer stands and I cut a lot more than I should. If you need trails trimmed and maintained, this is a "no brainer". Keep oil in it and a sharp blade and you will be happy.Stihl is a constant in quality.
