Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent and Powerful I have many trees on my property that require yearly maintenance. This has incredible power even on very thick limbs! The engine has no problem handling any type of wood and the cutting head and chain go through the limbs like a hot knife through butter. At this price point, I can't believe how great it works. It's the typical fantastic quality I've come to expect from Stihl.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not happy with this pole saw I probably have less than 10 total hours in this product, and has been nothing but trouble since I first started it. Chain got really dull very quickly. Had to go buy another overpriced chain at dealer, also went dull very quickly. Now I can't get it to run at all. It starts fine, but when throttle is pressed, it bogs down and won't turn the chain. I pulled the spark plug boot to check the spark plug as the manual directed, but the terminal cap in the boot broke. Now I have to take in and pay to get this fixed. Not to mention the awkwardness of the machine. Its very hard to work on because it won't sit flat, keeps rolling over. Poor design!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from pole trimmer 56 C Love the trimmer, easy to use, but after using one time cutting 2 small limbs I put it in my garage and when I came out the following day I had a puddle of chain lube on the garage floor. It did not turn over it just leaked out. Not happy about that! I have 4 other Stihl products and no problems!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to maneuver in close brush Found a super deal at my local Stihl Dealer. Have about 10 miles of lanes to keepup and this item fits the bill.Really like the easy start.And balanced so that a guy whose is 75 can swing it around without getting tired.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Overall good saw, I just have a word of warning about the chains The overall quality of the product is amazing. It starts easy and pleasant to use, but I wish I knew how hard it is to find replacement chains before buying it. I don't want to call a dealer to order then drive all the way there every time I need a chain. On top of all that they cost 3x as much as chains for competing saws. Baileysonline has them in stock but charge a fortune for shipping.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great saw Wow......this pole saw is awesome and for a great price....never had a power tool start so easy....I have other Stihl saws, but this is by far the easiest to start....a child could start it, so lock it up.It is well balanced and makes short work of any job.Its also easy and safe to cut any limbs on the ground as your hands and body are 6 or 7 feet from the actual chain saw.This saw is a winner. My Stihl dealer Chappell tractor in Milford NH had it all set up and gassed up when I picked it up...not going to find that service in a big box store
