    This saw is a branch & brush "scalpel"
    I bought the HT 101 for our farm and have been using it to clear thick brush from ditches and limbs from trees. It has proved very reliable and starts effortlessly. This IS the right tool for the job and it has increased my productivity at least 4 fold. One VERY nice feature is that it enables you to insert the saw - rather than yourself :-) - into large brush thickets, severe branches off near their base then simply pull them out. This feature alone justifies owning this tool, particularly when ... read more clearing blackberry or wild roses, let alone honeysuckle and other invasive species. The same holds true when trimming thorn trees like buckhorn, honeylocust and hawthorns PLUS you eliminate the need for a ladder! It's all GOOD.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    This pole saw is great for those trees you don't wanna have to get ur climbing gear on for.
    Upper body strength is a must .saw is somewhat awkward to use.its easy to push the envelope w this saw. Shaft and power. Head difficult to avoid frequent damage. Probably best used minimize fatigue to self and saw. Using this saw from a ladder or rooftop ,something I don't recommend for the un skilled operator.however I highly recommend a hardhat and glasses. Pound for pound it's a good investment.i wouldn't loan it out to a neighbor though.

    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.

    This product is the best
    I am 60 years old, obese, and have a lot of large mature trees. I bought this pruner 4 years ago, works great, branches cut like butter. I also purchased a third pole to reach even higher branches. The saw blade has yet to go bad after many many hundreds of branches cut, some 5" thick. The pruner cuts 1" thick branches easily. Easy to handle, light weight, cuts fast, and still works like new after many years. You will not be disappointed purchasing this.

    Should have purchased this saw many years ago.
    Next to the zero turn mower this pole saw is the best investment I have made in a long time. I have had it for six days now and used it every day without any issue at all. Will use it this fall to start and clear fence lines on the farm that I have been meaning to do for years. Showed it to a fellow farmer yesterday and he was so impressed he went up the road and ordered one for himself. Nothing bad to say about this saw and I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a good commercial duty pole saw.

    I use this more than my chainsaw
    I was a little shocked at the price of this saw once I bought it. Little did I know that on my first job it would pay for itself in the time it saved. I am the envy of my block and all my neighbors have asked me to come help out since I was equipped to handle the tough jobs they couldn't do safely from a ladder. I highly recommend this pruner. It is versatile enough to do any job I throw at it and powerful enough to handle the daily load I put it under as a professional.

    Heavy, but solid and easy to work with
    The HT 131 is indeed heavy, but that eliminates wobble and allows you to spend less time trimmng each tree. Until the chain broke in, I had to constantly back off the tension each time I started it, but consider this a safety tool, keeping you from lugging one more sharp instrument up a ladder. It's pricey, but it's a high-quality tool that will serve you decades if maintained.

    I have gone through several other brands of pole pruners and this one tops them all. Its extended reach is astounding. It cuts through anything. Its expensive but well worth it. I don't really like how the lopper attachment comes with such a short rope and it doesn't even come attached but thats a simple fix. Just have to buy a longer rope.

    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!

    Top of The Line Telescoping Pole
    This telescoping pole is top of the line. Easy extension and durable and does not wobble or give way when under pressure. You cannot go wrong with Stihl. Stihl products may cost a bit more than the others but you get what you pay for. For quality and long life equipment Stihl is the only brand I buy. Been burned too many times by cheap imitators.

    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.

    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.
