Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does what I needed and overall it a good product. I have been very pleased with the products use and the results I have had. The only issue I have which I just recently realized is the Bar/Chain oil that goes in the little well at the end where the chain is leaks. I had filled it when I first used it and was surprised it was empty when I went back to use it again a couple weeks later. I filled it again, used it again and set it in my garage. The next day in the garage floor I saw a small puddle of oil where is was slowly leaking out.I will get in touch with the dealer and see what they suggest.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Expensive but really nice I have used this unit on scrub oak, live oak and Chinese tallow. It made quick work of any branch under 8” thick and with a little planning can handle 12-14” limbs. The 10” bar is stout and the chain is super sharp. I LOVE that it comes in 2 pieces as storage is much easier. Starts on first pull almost everytime. I have never had an issue getting the HT 56 to start.The weight is hefty. A couple hours with the unit and you will be tired. But honestly it’s a lot better than a saw and ladder. The real issue I had was the price. Took almost a year before I could finally come around and buy one. However, there is nothing at this price point or lower than even comes close to the quality and power of this unit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very impressed It’s a purpose built saw, simple and powerful. I’ve had no issues with it - cutting up to 8” live and dead oak.. Wished more thought and effort went into the shoulder strap

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A fine trimmer I've used this pole saw a lot -- even more than I thought I would when I bought it. It's a handy item to have and makes cutting limbs a lot easier. It starts easily and runs great. It's a little heavy, but I'm old and puny and I'm sure that's not a problem for others. In any case, it's a nice product and I heartily recommend it.
