    Great tool for the right situations
    Only used a couple of times but I absolutely love this saw for cutting large branches that are hard to reach. For small stuff 4"-5" and smaller I prefer a manual pole saw due to the lighter weight, but for large cuts the old fashioned pole saw is quite a workout after a while. I recently used this pole saw to clean up and remove a lot of the top of a large knobcone pine that had fallen over but was still about 15 feet of the ground at the top due to being supported by a large lower limb. The gas ... read more pole saw made quick work of the top and all the branches. Huge time and energy saver, plus I was not about to "shimmy" my way up the tree with a standard chainsaw. This saw is overkill for small stuff because although it is faster it weighs a ton more than any decent manual pole saw, but for the large cuts it is just too good not to have one.

    Stihl brand is #1 for a reason.
    As a homeowner I chose the HT 103 model because of the telescoping 16 foot reach. This new model has an easy to use shaft lock. Gloves on or off to do this. The chain bar oil refill works great, but this is a gloves off cap to open for me. That's ok...I'm not in a race to do this process anyway. Day one first time use, I would start it up and let it run for a while to break in. I had started the saw and it went dead a couple times. After this saw is warmed up (30 minutes or so) it is good to ... read more go. You won't have to ever do this again. This saw has never quit running after the day one process. I used it on day one without any readjustments. After day two I did tighten the chain a little which was easy to do with a half turn with the included wrench. I have now used this saw at the neighbors house and a few others... you can easily make your money back if you wanted to with this saw. For storing this saw. I hung two rubber coated hooks from the ceiling/wall of my shed. When I sat the saw on the hooks, the saw wanted to swing upside down. I don't want to store this saw upside down. So I reinstalled the hooks closer to the wall so the motor of the saw touches the wall keeping the saw upright. Overall. I love this saw. I will buy other Stihl products. The hedger and edger are next on my list.

    Easyer than climbing the tree with a with an 023c
    I have owned this polesaw for about half a year and it stihl works great. This pole saw has held is edge one several hundred cut on several tree types spruce , ash and from branch sizes from up to about 9 inches down to branches around 1/8 inch. The 1/4 chain has worked great for this pole saw , shaping the chain with an Oregon chain grinder will be my next step. I have used this saw to drop about a dozen small dead oak an ash trees and it keeps on going. After working and fixing stihl ... read more machines just under 2 decades has helped out a lot.

    My go-to tool for trees
    Love, Love, Love this pruner! A must-have for tree trimming. I have run over them with my truck & still works like a charm. The tool that comes up missing because everyone else wants to use it.

    Great for reaching branches in high places.
    I purchased the PP100 several years ago to prune branches on my property. It has proven to be an excellent hand tool for trimming and for reaching those hard to get branches. I would recommend the PP100 for those that demand HIGH QUALITY tools in their arsenal! You will be amazed at the size branches this tool will handle. Very useful tool!

    Typical Stihl Quality
    Bought this to trim some branches that I had to keep moving out of my way when mowing my lawn. Sliced through Red Oak limbs like they were nothing. Very sharp, great quality. A little pricey, but a lifetime warranty goes a long way to offset the price.

    Outstanding!
    I've had a Stihl pro chainsaw for 25 years and it's super reliable, also have a Stihl gas leaf blower. Big fan of Stihl products. I bought this pole pruner to replace a lousy battery powered one that was always frustrating to use. This saw is very well balanced, starts easy and idles perfectly. The chain is staying tight and is quite amazing in cutting power. I've been trimming live oak limbs (dense and hard wood) and this powers right through. Unless I'm cutting down an entire tree, this is ... read more my go-to saw. I do have one complaint, the design of the engine housing needs to be improved. As it is now the saw can't easily be stored in a vertical position - it doesn't have a flat space to rest on. I always have to fiddle with it to get it to stay in one position. Stihl has not solicited my review - I'm just a happy owner. Oh, I'm also 70 years old, in fairly good physical condition and handling this saw is well within my capability.

    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+.

    prefect for small limbs
    for limbs too little for saws. I have huge tree on my farm and there is always a little limb that is just to small for the saws. this thing is prefect.

    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.

    Great pruner, but light duty only.
    This review pertains to the current model PP-101, which my dealer tells me has superceded the PP-100. Mine was purchased in April 2019. Pros: -Extremely lightweight, you can use it for a long time without feeling any strain. -The blades are also impressively sharp right out of the box--far better than any pruning shears you'll find at a home improvement store. In my opinion the blades are every bit as good as a certain Swiss maker of pruners which is the gold standard in the industry. Co ... read more ns: -The light weight comes with a price--which is that I'm unsure about the long term durability of this product. The shaft is a very thin walled aluminum tube; there's no doubt this works fine if you take care of your tools, but if you treat them rough I can see problems. When I bought this unit the first one that my dealer ordered in for me was bent during shipping. I can see that might happen very easily. If you are a landscaper or a contractor and you want to toss this in the back of a truck with other tools I don't think it would last very long. Ditto if you want to use it for larger/heavier work. There is a hook on the head of the tool to pull down cut branches, but I'd be wary of pulling hard with it. Also, the thin steel rod that transfers the force from the hand lever up to the blade is quite small and that does not inspire confidence. I'm sure I can squeeze the handle far harder than the tool can take. I'd keep in mind that this tool is NOT a replacement for a lopper, or even close to it. Stick with using it for small size branches and I'm sure it will last a long time.

    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!

    Superb Tool
    I have 40+ acres of property with literally thousands of trees. I have used a ladder and hand pruners for years with mixed results. I finally decided to purchase a STIHL pole pruner. It is lightweight, easy to use, and very, very effective. the lopper takes down 1"+ branches, including hard dead wood, with ease. The pruning saw is very sharp, durable and cuts 2+" branches in seconds. I wish I had purchased one earlier.

    Wish I had paid the high price years ago
    Over the years I've purchased half a dozen pole mounted saw and clipper devices from those with ratcheting gears, long leverage arms, etc. NOTHING comes close the Stihl. Take care around the clipper blade. The first thing mine cut was the back of my knuckle as I pulled it from the packaging. I didn't feel the cut it was so sharp, and it effortlessly glides through sapwood limbs. With two hands on the rope and the pole against the trunk or a leg you can cut any living oak limb that will fit into ... read more the mouth of the cutter. The blade does not flex and makes a clean cut all the way through it's arc. I also bought the longest saw blade for its longer cutting stroke and to allow cutting larger diameter limbs. It has amazingly efficient teeth and the perfect angle. One or two pulls and it creates a deep enough groove to allow cutting on the pull AND push stroke. The little nub/stopper on the end prevents pulling the blade all the way through. A feature I didn't realize I wanted until I tried it. In a careless moment I left it in the fall area of a tree and the blade was bent over 90 degrees. However, when I freed the blade, it snapped back and remains straight as the day it was purchased. From the chainsaw protective chaps the screen faced hard hat, to all the chainsaws, chains, bars, Weed and Brush trimmers, oils and parts, there is no other "brand" that I have grown to trust so totally and across the entire product line. If they made cars, guns or anything else, I would be among the first buyers no matter the price.

    Very well made, high quality pole pruner
    I bought the PP 900 a few years back and use it quite regularly on my tree covered lot. It has a very good blade on it for effortless cutting of limbs. I also like the fact that you can get replacement parts if you need them. The unit is expensive, but you get what you pay for! STIHL has done their research on this tool! I HIGHLY recommend the PP 900.
