Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. August 12, 2016

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great tool to maintain trees on your property Needed to get a lot I found trimming done and this tool was perfect for the job. July 22, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product and a time saver I've owned Stihl products for more than 30 years. I don't know why I waited so long to buy a pole pruner. Easy to use, plenty of power to get the job done. July 20, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Definitely Commercial Grade - Great for Large Wooded Residential Properties The Stihl HT-131 is definitely a commercial grade pole pruner. I have a large (3.5 acre) property that is heavily wooded. This tool starts reliably on the first or second pull. I use the 50:1 pre-mix that is store bought in the quart cans. After talking with small engine repair shop owners I want to eliminate ethanol in my fuel. The HT-131 is powerful: I have cut through 8 inch maple branches and 4 inch oak (so far) without any bogging down. The adjustable pole is great. Be prepared for an upper body workout though when using the HT-131. It can get heavy and unbalanced due to its weight distribution. Note I only have the over-the-shoulder strap that came with it. Also note that I am 56 years young. For safety I recommend wearing a chainsaw hardhat / hearing protection combo headset gear. Most of the branches you will be cutting off will be overhead.

Rated 5 out of 5 by You get what you pay for. I've been debating on one of these for a year or so now and I am so happy I bought one. The tool is way more than I expected and I couldn't be happier. It will fit nicely into my operation and I can stop sending my customers elsewhere for pruning taller trees. Not terribly expensive, especially when you factor in what you get out of this tool. If you're thinking of buying one don't wait. June 27, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Pole saw This pole saw is very powerful and efficient. It gets the job done and the extension pole part of it operates flawlessly. Very easy to operate and maneuver. The pole saw harness is a must and designed for this saw but sold separately. Easy to start every time and doesn't use much fuel or oil. I really like the way my saw has performed.Without the harness it is heavy and kind of awkward to use. May 24, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Cuts great Bought it for trimming overhanging branches over the driveway and house. Its a lot safer than getting on the ladder and it cuts really good. I don't remember my regular chainsaws cutting this good. Its a little heavy so a small person might have a problem handling it but you get what you pay for. Its built to last and that is why I bought a Stihl. No problems with it and it starts real easy. At the store before I bought it they did find that the guy that assembled it did not put it together right (chain on backwards) and the motor did not connect to the saw. The square drive was not engaged and was corrected before I took it home. March 27, 2016
