    Excellent Product
    I bought the HT 103 to cut branches on 15 acre farm which has many low hanging limbs on the field edges that hit you in the face while running a bush-hog with the tractor. I'm very experienced with chainsaws and cut professionally for a period of time. This is my first season with the saw and thus far I am ecstatic with the performance. Being able to extend the reach and function has been superb.

    Good prunner
    Very pleased. Easy to extend. Works well. This is a homeowners model. Could use more power and a little bigger teeth.... but as I said it isn’t something to use everyday. If you have stuff that needs cut off.... this will do it. Did use it to cut off limbs that were 4” thick. Take your time let the prunner do the job. Glad we bought it. It is heavy, but it has to be.

    While a little heavy at full extencion, the quality is outstanding
    The HT103 is a well built product. The price point puts this tool out of many peoples reach, however if you need to trim back high hanging branches it is well worth the cost. When you use this product at full extension length it does cause quite a bit of fatiage.

    Unbeatable quality and utility.
    I have owned this product for 2 years now and I just love using it. Mine has the old style handle and the new ones feel much better. The old models had one tiny problem that was easily fixed. There is a small screw that acts as a stopper so that you don't rotate the handle completely as this would twist the innards and break something, and the screw was prone to falling out after extensive use. A drop of light epoxy on the screw threads and mine stayed put--easy fix. Now I use this for ... read more pruning just about everything: Japanese Maples, fruit trees, tall vines like Ivy and Jasmine, pittosporum, etc. It's also a great tool for pruning anything with thorns like reaching into a thick lime tree or large bougainvillea. This tool is very strong and can take a lot of abuse. I frequently leave this pruner outside and it shows no signs of corrosion anywhere. After 2 seasons of use the blade still cuts well despite never being sharpened. I have used both hands to squeeze the handle as hard as I can while trying to cut something i probably should have used another tool for, and I'm a fairly strong person at 6' 3" 275. I love tools that need no babying or hand-holding as they go through life and this pruner is just beyond exceptional in its durability. Yes I'm sure if you drove over it something bad would happen, but if you're driving over your tools, well, you have other more important problems you ought to deal with. This pruner saves you from having to use a ladder which increases both safety and efficiency. With this pruner it's nice to be able to make your cuts and be able to step back and assess your progress whereas with a ladder you have to keep going up and down the ladder. Anyway I probably sound like I'm a sales rep for this product or something but I can assure you that's not true. My affection for this tool is rooted in the fact that it makes my job easier, faster, and safer while costing very little and asking nothing in terms of maintenance. Keep the blade clean and you're good to go. I hope you enjoy this pruner as much as I do.

    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.

    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.

    Great pole saw
    I recently bought my first pole saw from a noted home improvement store: a 16' extendable fiberglass unit with a saw blade and lopper head. It was not expensive, and it showed when I used it. I returned it, and bought another online with blue aluminum poles promising cuts at over 30' high. When the set arrived, I assembled all six 6' poles, checked it for stability, found the results laughable and listed it for sale without even opening the box containing the saw head, blade, etc. I then did ... read more what I should've done initially, and that of course was buy the PP900 with extra mid pole, and I am beyond pleased with this set. For one thing, all of the components are beautifully crafted, if you can say that about a pole saw. Both the saw and lopper blades are razor sharp. When I first looked at the 13" saw blade mine came with, I was a little concerned because it was not as "tall" as a 13" blade I have on a hand pruning saw. I thought that might affect its lateral stability while cutting. It absolutely did not; the saw cut exceptionally well. The rope the set comes with is 14' long; obviously if you get the mid pole and intend to use the lopper head with all three poles you'll have to get a longer rope. I did; no big deal. This is a first class pole saw. Incidentally, I am 5'6" tall, 140 lbs, and 62 years old, and am able to handle this unit with all three poles connected without difficulty. FYI, each pole weighs approx. 2lbs. 6 oz., the lopper head with rope weighs approx. 2lbs. 4oz. and the saw head w/blade weighs approx. 1lb. 3oz.

    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.

    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!

    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 power
    We recently picked up an HT 250 as a replacement for an aging HT 75. Let me tell you, the difference is night and day. The 250 has more than enough power for any job. I'm a firm believer that many pole saws are underpowered, but this one is not. We have used it extensively pruning many acres of orchard trees and it has not let us down once. Some people complain about the new cutting head having plastic components, but I have not found this to be an issue at all. Unless you are purposefully ... read more abusing it there shouldn't be any problems - and the weigh savings are very noticeable when you are operating the saw all day. Highly recommend it.

    plenty of power and sturdy
    Always ready to go when I need it, and that's not very often. Keeping the Stihl synthetic mix in it all the time seems to be the ticket for extending the life of the fuel system by avoiding ethanol, and it cranks almost immediately after having sat for months at a time.

    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.

    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!
