Rated 5 out of 5 by HandyManStever best friends with Stihl As a handyman I find myself at different jobs with different requirements weekly. Recently I was asked to do some trimming for a rental one of my customers owns. This pole saw did 70% of the work allowing me to finish 8 hours of work in 6 hours. Love my tools, love my Stihls.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Quality and Dependability Spent some time reading reviews on home grade pole saws and found excellent reviews for the Stihl 56 CE. The reviews appear to be right on...starts easily usually on the first pull, high quality construction, easy to use. This review is based on 4-5 hours use. A little pricier than other brands but I think I made the wise choice. July 26, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wouldn't be without it This thing starts easy and has plenty of power. I keep finding more uses, like getting a stubborn tree to lay down without putting myself at risk. Great for pruning. July 7, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by A very useful product that is well built I bought the HT 56 based off of all the positive reviews. I used it to cut three small/medium trees down. I was able to reach up high on the trunk and make a cut to keep less of the tree to fall down on my house. I would not have been able to do this with a regular chain saw.The unit is well built and has a good power ratio for a 10" bar. I like the thinner chain than what comes on a regular chain saw for precision limb cuts. July 1, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very well balanced I bought this to replace an old Poulan and it is very well balanced. It performs and cuts better than I had expected. Would be nice if it had a "T" handle to give a little better control. June 2, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by awesome i am a home user, was looking for pole saw, Stihl came recommended from a friend who owns almost all the saws Stihl makes, i am only 150 lbs, very lean and thin person, even this one feels heavy after an hour of cutting, still i had so much fun with this saw. it starts with one pull almost all the time, easy2start makes starting so easy i think my 10 yr old daughter can start it. once started it cuts branches like butter, nothing will be able to stop this saw, i have cut oak~pine with ease. i would recommend this pole saw over any other brand at any time. after i was done with my backyard, i volunteered to clean up my friends backyard. too much fun!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Very Nice Pruner This pruner has typical Stihl quality even though they are very pricey. In saying that, I can't complain because you get what you pay for and you just can beat a Stihl. I won't buy anything else. If you can't afford one, save up until you can. I have been using them my whole life. You won't be disappointed. April 4, 2016
