    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.

    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 occasionally.to 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.

    Great gas pruner
    The HT 100 is a well powered, light weight pruner that is very dependable. For one of the less expensive models, it has plenty of power to bring down large branches. When you hit the throttle you can feel the power of this pruner. It does not mess around when it comes to doing a good job for you. I was so pleased, after I sold my lawn care business, I bought another one. You will not be disappointed.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    Absolute BEST Pole for Manual Pruning!
    This PP 800 is a killer telescoping pole: Lightweight and sturdy/strong at the same time. The 18 foot pole is REALLY 18 feet long (not like some other pole makers that calculate in the additional height of the person using it). So, add in about half your height, and you'll actually get a 20' to 22' reach. It's actually a joy to use because it doesn't bend or wobble - you can be very precise with your cutting. I've been through a few other polesaws and this one is a serious professional pole ... read more compared to any of the others. To finish your pole system out, get the ** PS 80 Arboriculture Saw attachment, and the ** Pole Pruner Lopper Attachment. The Saw and Lopper are both top notch pro tools as well! Can't be beat. No hesitation - Get it!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Works Great for Me!
    Bought the HT101 a month ago. I've used it to maintain a large common area for a HOA. Sarts on the first pull every time. Cuts like butter. I had a competitors unit previously that always got stuck in cuts and bogged down. The Stihl powers right through. The only thing I could say I don't love about it is the bottom is narrow and it is top heavy when sitting in the bed of a pickup. That causes it to tip over in transit. It doesn't leak fuel or bar oil when this happens so, its not a big deal.

    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.

    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...
