    Great, well built product
    Fantastic saw. Starts flawlessly. Good extension. Idles for extended time while shorting branches. Very quiet for a 2 stroke engine. As mentioned in previous reviews, it does get a little heavy.. A strap ( sling ) is supplied, but, the optional harness is best for extended usage.. Need to pay attention when replacing chain due to different bar gauge,s and link configuration..( low profile etc. ) I would recommend this saw to anyone. This is more of a professional series unit, hence the higher ... read more price. They do have a homeowners unit at substantially less... I have cut many red and white oak and branches up to 11+ inches with no problem whatsoever.... It puuuuurs...

    Super saw
    This pole pruner is a little pricey but you get a solid rugged piece of equipment for your investment. I am not a large person so maybe a larger person could handle it more easily than I. However, it gets the job done in good fashion although a bit fatiguing for a smaller and older person such as I. 5 ft. 6 in. and 63 years old. It extends very easily and has plenty of power. I was surprised how quickly it cuts thru 6 and even 8 inch oak limbs with ease.

    Wouldn't be without it!
    We recently had a 60' Juniper tip over after becoming super saturated from the massive rain storm that recently hit Northern California. The tree was located on a steep hill, which made it very risky to get in close with a chainsaw. The HT 101 allowed me to safely take the tree apart without the risk of significant injury. A five star tool all the way!

    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.

    Not a toy!
    This makes every other pruner look like a toy. More importantly it works awesome! Its length is easy to adjust and the blade bites into the branch. The lightweight and sturdiness make it more than easy to use. It is a joy!

    Best pole saw made
    This saw is way above the competition. Ive used every pole saw know to man and the stihl cutting speed and rigidity of the saw blade are the best in the business. They dont last forever but thats the nature of this business, we wear out everything. Ive purchased 7 of them for my tree company so far. Highly recommended.

    My wife thought it was just for the house :)
    I purchased this to trim trees at home and trimmed two River Birchs ,two Oaks and a Poplar. This was so much better than a hand pole saw. I then took it to where I lease too deer hunt and put up a tripod stand. I was able to trim limbs from the platform out 12 feet to open up a shooting lane.I also was able to cut the top out of a tree while standing on ground. I now consider this a must have when loading up to set up stands for deer season along with my Stihl 028 chain saw I've had since '94 ... read more that stills runs as good as the day I got it.

    Great saw
    I'm a homeowner with a large yard and many trees. I also own some farm/hunting land, much of which is forested. I got this pole saw about a month ago, after doing much research. The build quality of this saw is better than the competition and the power is superior. It starts very easily and is easy to handle, although working it at full extension will give you a workout. It seems a little overpriced, but if it lasts as long as other Stihl chainsaws I've owned, then it'll be worth it. I really ... read more like the saw--it's just what I needed.

    Best "chainsaw on a stick" that I have ever owned or used.
    We try to maintain over 200 oak trees on our place. Over the past 10 years or so, I have gone through several "cheap" pruners and chainsaws. We were spending as much time working on the tools as we were working with them. The HT 131 is heavy as compared to the others, but it is a lot more heavy duty and does not require near the maintenance. We are very satisfied with the tool and recommend it to anyone who wants a tool that will work with you and get the job done.

    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.

    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!

    Nice, real nice.
    This is a bad Mama Jama. For years I have needed this. I finally spent the money and have kicked myself in the butt for not doing it sooner. My place looks great. The equipment is easy use and has plenty of power. I'm looking forward to years of trouble free use.

    Fantastic Product
    This is soooo easy to use. I had multiple trees on my property that needed lower branches trimmed off. Doing it by hand was a very tiring and time consuming task. Using the HT 100 made it quite easy -- my wife even wanted to use it and it was easy for her to work. HIGHLY recommend this for getting rid of those annoying limbs.

    fantastic!
    I bought a Stihl chainsaw several years ago it proved to be the best I had ever used. Since I bought a hand held blower for my wife a backpack blower and the pole chainsaw pruner they are super ..the best!
