    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.

    Good saw
    Just bought my second one. First one lasted a little over a year using it every day and only reason I replaced it was because it got run over and the pole was broke. You can't beat Stihl saws they are the best on the market bar none. The HT 100 is no exception.

    Starts, runs and cuts great. Perfect for keeping all your cutting on the ground.
    One thing that is great about this saw is how beautifully it starts up and idles. It is so easy to use you will get a lot of work done quickly.

    This saw has plenty of power
    I owned a pole pruner for several years, not from Stihl, and was very dissatisfied with the power and ability to cut limbs out of my trees. The pruner broke down and I had the occasion to go to a Stihl, dealership for the other vendors parts and saw a Stihl HT 100 Pole Pruner and decided I would buy it rather than trying to fix my other product. Wow! What a difference working with the Stihl Pole Pruner as there was much better power and balance in the Stihl pruner. I will never go back to ... read more another brand and this Stihl HT 100 is fantastic to work with.

    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.

    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!

    Long pole, short work.
    I purchased this produce a week ago. My father had one (72 year old) and strongly recommended it. I have to say it is a joy to use. We have 30 acres and while 25 is pasture, that other 5 and around the house needs constant work. Until now I have had many limbs just taunt me, just out of reach for my chainsaw. Well they are now in the "to burn" pile. It works great, easy to start and cuts like a dream! My wife is worried that we wont have anything left standing. /shrug oh well. If you want ... read more something that will do what it is designed to do, get a Stihl.

    I've loved mine for many years!
    I bought the first pro pruner my dealer got into stock MANY years ago. It has been used often and been carefully and well-maintained: it only recently failed to the point of needing a machine shop to make a repair piece (because the saw is so old the part is no longer available). I'm considering buying another as I don't want to wait for the repair to finish our current orchard job. Most definitely the right tool for the overhead job. There have been small irritations like a leaky oil ... read more reservoir, but nothing that would keep me from buying another when I need it.

    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.

    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!

    This saw makes me look good every time I use it!
    Cutting trees and limbs that are right up against buildings, or could fall on objects, are easily dismantled from the top down and safely brought down. It's like having an 18 foot long surgeons scalpel and people are amazed when they see it in action. This is a professional quality tool and the best pole saw that I've ever used.

    Best Tree Saw I Have Ever Owned
    It's light and strong. Doesn't whip around like wooden pruners. One of the best tools that I have. Worth every penny.

    Great Pruner but can get heavy to handle
    This is a great buy and extremely useful around the house and on the farm. It has already paid for itself in one week because of all the limbs I have trimmed in my tree lines. The only negative I have is that this prunner can get very heavy after using it for a prolonged period of time. I believe Stihl sells a shoulder/back bracket to help hold the prunner. That is something you might want to consider purchasing to make it easier on your arms and back.

    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...

    This pole pruner rocks!
    I have about 1/2 mile of creek bank that I am clearing all the undesirable brush from and leaving only hardwoods. This pruner is really yielding some outstanding and professional looking results. It is nice to safely prune all the trees on my property so that the roll bar on my tractor will clear all limbs and allow me to mow up close. The pruner starts easily and just rips through the branches under its own weight. It comes with a shoulder sling that really helps as the tool is a bit heavy. I ... read more can see where the harness accessory would be a wise investment if you are going to use this tool for more than a few branches in one outing.
