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…

    Good power and easy to handle
    We have a commercial Stihl pole saw but we needed one that I, as a 5'3" female could handle with ease. This pole saw is easy to start and handle. So far this saw has been able to handle the trim work necessary. It's a lot lighter than the commercial saw I have been using so I can work with it longer. This saw so far has exceeded our expectations.

    A MUST HAVE FOR TRIMMING TREES
    This is a awesome saw. It cuts tree branches like a hot knife in butter. I generally don’t write reviews but this saw deserved My 5 star review. I also have a stihl farm boss saw (another great saw) stihl builds great products!

    Ideal for the home owner.
    I have enjoy this saw on many projects so far. I am disappointed that the cover (dust cover cap) for the exposed ends when the saw is broken down in 2 pieces for storage and transporting was not in the package when I bought it was not in with the tools/manual package. This item was mention in the manual as it being supplied with saw but the Stihl dealer it was not included, I can only assume since it came already assembled on display that the dealer thought it was just shipping material and ... read more threw it away when they assembled it for display.

    Works well for small branches
    The PP 101, I find, is very handy for light trimming. It is light, very precise, made with Stihl quality and cuts through fruit tree branches, up to about 1/2 inch, easily. I would like to have a shorter one, maybe 3 or 4 feet, for trimming roses and hard to reach plants.

    Unbeatable quality and utility.
    I have owned this product for 2 years now and I just love using it. Mine has the old style handle and the new ones feel much better. The old models had one tiny problem that was easily fixed. There is a small screw that acts as a stopper so that you don't rotate the handle completely as this would twist the innards and break something, and the screw was prone to falling out after extensive use. A drop of light epoxy on the screw threads and mine stayed put--easy fix. Now I use this for ... read more pruning just about everything: Japanese Maples, fruit trees, tall vines like Ivy and Jasmine, pittosporum, etc. It's also a great tool for pruning anything with thorns like reaching into a thick lime tree or large bougainvillea. This tool is very strong and can take a lot of abuse. I frequently leave this pruner outside and it shows no signs of corrosion anywhere. After 2 seasons of use the blade still cuts well despite never being sharpened. I have used both hands to squeeze the handle as hard as I can while trying to cut something i probably should have used another tool for, and I'm a fairly strong person at 6' 3" 275. I love tools that need no babying or hand-holding as they go through life and this pruner is just beyond exceptional in its durability. Yes I'm sure if you drove over it something bad would happen, but if you're driving over your tools, well, you have other more important problems you ought to deal with. This pruner saves you from having to use a ladder which increases both safety and efficiency. With this pruner it's nice to be able to make your cuts and be able to step back and assess your progress whereas with a ladder you have to keep going up and down the ladder. Anyway I probably sound like I'm a sales rep for this product or something but I can assure you that's not true. My affection for this tool is rooted in the fact that it makes my job easier, faster, and safer while costing very little and asking nothing in terms of maintenance. Keep the blade clean and you're good to go. I hope you enjoy this pruner as much as I do.

    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!

    Better than expected
    Little Pico chain. Not as much power as the gas powered version. I borrowed one (HTA 65) from a friend and was surprised by how easy it was to use and the precision of the cut. I decided the cost was too much and bought two other brands that were cheaper. Sent them both back. Counted how many times I could have used the HTA 65 and clearly it was better than a hand pole saw in many cases. I have made the switch to battery power for leaf blower and small chain saw as well. The positives out weigh ... read more the negatives. Push a button. No exhaust. Almost no maintenance. Less noise. If you are wondering why your shoulders are sore and your neck hurts consider what happens when you hand pole saw when it gets stuck or just won't cut that branch that refuses to stay still. You will thank the designers of the HTA 65.

    Quiet, Powerful
    I have been considering the battery powered line of tools from Stihl, because I hate when a tool won't start. For tools that I use a lot, weed eater, blower, etc, this is not a problem. Even my small (021) chainsaw runs often enough so that I don't usually have a problem. But my hedge trimmer, and my large saw, don't get used all that often, and I am always concerned that I need to fully drain the tank, and carb each time I use them. So when I decided to get a pole pruner, I looked at the ... read more battery line again. It is more expensive to start. For the complete set, battery, charger and tool, it cost about 25% more, but now I have the charger, and a battery, so if I decide to replace another tool, I will definitely consider battery power. So on to the meat of the review: The saw has plenty of power for the trimming I was doing. I was trimming branches 6-8" in diameter, and it didn't bog down at all. I used it for about an hour (obviously not running the saw all the time), and I got tired before the saw did. When I finished up, I still had about half the battery left, according to the LED display. The saw was heavier than I would have liked, but still lighter than the gas powered unit, and handled pretty well, even reaching higher than I probably should have safely done. I like the quiet of the saw, if for nothing else, I could hear when the limbs were starting to crack, so that I could get out of the way. All-in-all, I am very pleased with the saw, and I will consider other electric tools from Stihl. I don't regret this purchase at all.

    Love this unit - does more than expected
    My wife had purchased the battery powered string trimmer a few years ago and we love it. I had decided I needed a pole pruner and had looked at gas powered units. I decided on the Stihl battery powered unit - we already had the battery and charger. I have used it several times for many different jobs. It has cut everything that I have felt safe cutting and some I haven't. It is heavier than lower priced units but will cut much more than they will. I have never had it bog down on a limb and have ... read more cut some at almost 8 inches in diameter. I am very happy with this unit and will be buying other Stihl battery powered units.

    Awesome Machine
    Awesome engine design as a 4 stroke without a oil sump which has to use gas/oil mixture. Not sure how long this design has been on the market for durability but I'm giving its low end power and light weight an A+.

    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).
