    Cuts like a chainsaw
    Bought the HT103 pole saw to remove a tree in my cannel after hurricane Irma. Wonderful saw that cuts thru 6" & 8" branches with ease. My electric pole saw started to smoke so it wasn't able to complete the job. Expensive but well worth it knowing the HT103 pole saw had the power to finish the job.

    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.

    THIS IS GOOD VALUE AND GREAT PERFORMANCE H T 103 POLE SAW
    POWERFUL MOTOR FOR THE CUTTING JOBS HAS A SOLID HANDLE NOT ALL THAT FLEX SOME OTHER MAKERS USE LIGHTER MATERIALS. ENGINE STARTS WITH EASE NOT COLD NATURED OR STALL AFTER STARTING . BAR OILING SYSTEM WORKS GOOD. THIS IS A VERY HARD WORKING POLE SAW AND WONT WORK THE OPERATORS TO FATIGUE. THANKS GOOD JOB ON THIS PRODUCT

    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    This review pertains to the current model PP-101, which my dealer tells me has superceded the PP-100.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!

    Awesome pole saw
    Easy to start. Has always fired up on first or second pull of the rope. More than enough power. Will easily power thru twelve inch diameter limbs. Great fuel economy. Will run for around three hours of trimming before refueling. Sturdy shaft assembly. Does not flex much while trimming. Great saw for the money

    Great value, great saw
    Bought this saw to replace my trusty but old ht101. More power,uses less gas. Will cut 10 inch limbs like butter. Be careful not to get the bar pinched in a limb because it's a long way up to clear it. Much better saw than the one it replaced, glad I waited. My local Stihl dealer gave me good advise as always. Step up and get yourself one of these, you won't be disappointed.

    awesome reach
    I think this is the right one. I think mine actually extends to 16 feet. So I really don't need to get on a ladder. This is worth the extra $100 for the extra 4' of reach. It's a little heavy when reaching tall limbs, but it cuts like a surgical knife, very sharp and I cut all day and the chain never went dull. It starts easy. Be careful about pulling cut branches down though, the two poles can come apart. it's a little tricky putting them back together, there are slots on the slides. So tighten ... read more it so this doesn't happen. Very happy with it. Definitely buy their gas for a longer warranty.

    good pole pruner
    what I see in reviews loggers need to be able to place metal cover rather than plastic. was farmers son cut lots of woods for more field space crops. was a professional firefighter for 36 yrs, loggers & firefighters are hard on the equipment we don't have time be easy going. loggers time is money (and lives)-firefighters time saves lives. Stihl needs really look at what professional can change make the job better give use tool to do so. you make the BEST of all equipment keep it going.

    Awesome!
    My friend and I each bought the HT 250 and have been extremely impressed with it. I previously had the HT 70 and the 250 blows it out the water. Everyone that sees me operate mine immediatly wants one. We’ve had them for 2+ years now.

    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.

    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!

    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.
