New - Pole Pruners

Smooth, precise cutting that makes quick work of tall branches

STIHL pole pruners put high trimming jobs within reach, giving you the power and precision to trim once-inaccessible branches down to size. You may not be able to identify every component of STIHL technology at work, but you’ll feel it in your hands: The balanced weight. The smooth cutting operation. Every integral part working together as you take down limbs – all while standing firmly on the ground. Whether gasoline-powered or powered manually, STIHL pole pruners are easy to operate, easy to carry and easy to maintain. It’s a win/win/win for homeowners and professionals alike.

As a cutting system, STIHL gasoline-powered pole pruners feature a low-emission, fuel-efficient engine. They not only save you money on fuel costs, they also run cleaner than traditional engines. They’re crafted using automatic oiling OILOMATIC® saw chains and Ematic™ guide bars – the same technology found in our legendary chainsaws. These exclusive parts improve cutting efficiency and reduce wear, improving your cutting potential.

When you choose to use a manual approach, STIHL is also committed to providing you with unique attention to every detail in our durable line of hand tools – the STIHL Precision Series™ pole pruners are crafted with long life, high-carbon tool steel blades that can be sharpened or replaced, and strong lightweight handles that can help you reach limbs up to 18’ above ground.

Note: STIHL recommends use of fuel with no more than 10% ethanol content. Using fuel with greater than 10% ethanol content may cause damage to your equipment and may void your STIHL warranty. Learn More…

    Great features at a great price
    Purchased this pole pruner to replace an old Poulan Pole Pruner with the assistance of the knowledgeable staff at Hope Mills Saw and Mower. They asked what my needs were and matched me to a couple of different pole pruners. Based upon my great experience with other Stihl products and the sales price on this unit, I purchased it. I've used it twice and it provides a quick start, runs smoothly and does a great job of cutting branches. I would highly recommend both the outstanding staff at Hope ... read more Mills Saw and Mower and the Stihl Pole Pruner for all of your outdoor power equipment needs.

    plenty of power and sturdy
    Always ready to go when I need it, and that's not very often. Keeping the Stihl synthetic mix in it all the time seems to be the ticket for extending the life of the fuel system by avoiding ethanol, and it cranks almost immediately after having sat for months at a time.

    Powerful for a battery powered device
    The battery on the HTA 85 lasts longer than I do on a tree trimming project. The 12" bar allows for cutting large limbs. Much of my trimming is with the pole at maximum extension, and it is a bit unwieldy being so long. But trim it does! Small branches or larger limbs are cut quickly. The motor is quiet enough that ear muffs are not required. Just push the trigger and the chain starts. Release the trigger and the motor stops. The unit is easy to clean, as there is only one nut to loosen to ... read more remove the cover or adjust chain tension. All in all, I'm impressed with this pole saw, plenty of power, easy to use, and the construction seems rugged.

    The saw cuts very fast, power is not a problem
    Just bought this saw today to trim some tall oaks around my cabin. The saw is heavy with the large battery but is well balance with included carrying strap. Saw cuts very fast using little power from the battery. I used the saw for over an hour going around trees trimming branch, the instant start and stop make for quick work and long battery life. The saw cost held me back for awhile, but this is a professional tool that is well designed and work extremely well. No ladder is needed to trim ... read more trees around a two story house.

    Powerful, quiet Polesaw.
    This saw was hard to get because nobody in the area could get them. After a few months, I found one, and snapped it up. I already had the HLA-65 hedge trimmer, and was sold on the Stihl battery products. My initial thought was that the saw was heavier than I expected, especially when it was extended to full length. That said, it is still a couple of pounds lighter than my low end gas pole saw. Once I got to actually use the saw on some trees, I was blown away by how well it cut. I was only ... read more trimming branches about 2 inches diameter about 15 feet off of the ground. This saw cut through them so easy it was a surprise. The branches were falling to the ground about a second after I put the saw to them. After about 5 minutes of use, I had a large pile of branches and limbs on the ground to dispose of. I thought I might use the pole saw to cut them shorter while they were on the ground, but that was difficult due to the weight being extended at the end of the pole. I may get the battery chainsaw some day to replace my Stihl Farmboss chainsaw. The battery equipment seems like the way to go for me.

    New favorite saw
    I own a commercial apple orchard. I just bought the HTA65 but ALSO own the HTA85 which I have had for 2 years now. I considered the HTA85 my best saw purchase but found it a bit heavy to work with. So, checking the specs on the HTA65 I took the chance and bought the fixed length version. While it is only a couple of pounds lighter, the weight savings is all in the upper half of the pruner. But not only is it lighter but its about 1 foot shorter than the HTA85 , which puts the saw head closer ... read more making the mechanical advantage better and adding to the much lighter feel of the saw. 99.9 percent of my cuts don't need the extension of the HTA85 so the HTA65 is now my "go to" saw. Huge difference after pruning and cutting for a while. I find that I use the pole saw for 80% of my chain saw work now. Also, I can let ANYONE use this saw! No chance of kickback injury or leg injury ( at least not to the operator).

    great pole saw with small weakness
    The telescoping aspect is great. Don't need to add extensions on and off, make you save a tonne of time. The blade is well design but could be a bit narrower for easier access in between branches. The big down is the locking mechanism is a plastic that cracks after a while. Rubber bumper at the end wears off pretty fast if you don't pay attention.

    It's lightweight, but stiff and strong
    Even though I have an HT-250 pruner, I was surprised at how often I reached for this one when cleaning up properties and improving sight lines at corner properties. It's quick, easy, light, strong, and after 15 months of use, the blade is still sharp. Moreover, I use it to limb long branches once they're on the ground, making them easier to load onto the truck. Great tool!

    Great Product But......
    Bought this Lopper Attachment for my PP800 Telescoping pole. The product is top of the line and definitely makes life easier and keeps me from having to climb trees to prune. However, there are a couple of issues that I had with my purchase. First of all, the unit shows an eyebolt to attach the rope too - had to purchase this myself which is ridiculous. I also did not like the quality of the rope supplied with the unit and so I went to Lowes and bought a 25ft section of 3/8" Twisted Poly Rope ... read more with a 3/8" Rope Clamp and Thimble Set. Once I attached the eyebolt, rope and clamp and thimble, I am very pleased with the Lopper Attachment. When you buy a Stihl product, you don't expect to have to buy other items in order to use the product. I believe that this needs to be looked into by quality control.

    the best there is
    Sold my off brand lopper and just bought this high quality lopper attachment....bought the pp800 pole I believe and at 18 feet high cutting the branches is so easy I don't even have to use the 8ft step ladder anymore...the easy pull of the rope and instant cut is just so easy and its so heavy duty and yet lightweight....another too notch quality product from STIHL....! I always clean it with Stihl penetrating oil and the razor sharp cutter stays clean as new and the tree sap won't corrode or ... read more rust the lopper either...you won't believe how it is so easy to use and precise point of cut on the branch . Thanks STIHL!
