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
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it Yes this item is expensive. BUT when you look at renting a different brand model of the same specs and not finishing your job in two days, and you can use this for how long and whenever you want, it really isn't expensive in the long run. Just one pruning by the professionals once a year easily pays for this model. It really does extend a great length. Great for pruning branches that hit you in the head when mowing, cracked storm damaged high up branches that may fall later and injure someone, and yearly pruning. The power of this unit is something to be admired. Makes jobs REALLY quick. I would easily buy it again March 4, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Get off the ladder and get this pole trimmer! We have a lot of trees at our Central Texas lake front property and my wife has been after me for a while to get off the ladder and get a pole trimmer. I have resisted buying due to the cost. She finally bought this one for me for Christmas, and I'm glad she did! I have several hours on it so far and it is great. It cuts through dead oak limbs like a warm knife through butter, powering through limbs several inches thick in seconds. The length is easily adjustable and the power is awesome. It is fairly heavy, but the shoulder strap helps balance the weight. The extended reach of this trimmer will eliminate needing to cut from a ladder for most of my trimming and will be much safer. I have two other Stihl chain saws, including one over 30 years old that still runs like a champ, and this pole trimmer is a great addition. February 12, 2016
