Rated 2 out of 5 by from Hard to start when cold Its hard to start when cold. When its warmed up its real easy to start. Good power and really like how it breaks down in two pieces, makes it easy to haul in my short bed truck.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product for the home user I am still in the break in period so I have not ran this at full throttle but I have easily cut everything that I needed to do. The trimmer easily comes apart for storage. It started on the first pull after priming with fuel. Very easy to use. I like the Stihl quality!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It makes working seem effortless After the tornado, tree limbs every where. After using this product you can't tell we ever had trees tore up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow! Bought the Stihl HT 56 C-E pole saw after one of my trees split in a storm. It started right up and the chain cut through branches like butter. We made quick work of a fairly large tree. Glad I purchased it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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 Mills Saw and Mower and the Stihl Pole Pruner for all of your outdoor power equipment needs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality is miles past other brands This pole saw is fantastic. I borrowed another brand from a friend, and wasn't impressed, so I've held off on buying one until now. Since all of my two-stroke tools are Stihl, (two trimmers, two blowers, three chainsaws, hedge trimmer, tiller) I decided to bite the bullet and invest in the HT56C-E. I wish I had done this long ago. Just like other Stihl products, it performs far past my expectations. If you're contemplating buying this saw, just go buy it. You will be happy you did.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great cutting power. I finally upgraded from a batter powered pole saw to the 56C. What a machine. It cuts fast and clean and has never ending power. It has made my life so much better when needing the many trees on my property trimmed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does the job well! The homeowner pole pruner is light enough to allow a weekend user to handle with ease, but effective on serious limb cutting.
