Rated 1 out of 5 by from dont buy I have nothing but problems both with the local dealer and the pole saw. My last pole saw was stolen and i've been disappointed with this plastic appointed Stihl product.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor quality compared to previous model Not near the saw as the previous model, flimsy shaft that bends easy, won't extend half the time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great saw! This saw exceeded my expectations. 6” oak branches with pole fully extended, no problem for this saw. Do be careful though, the pole will bend very easily if you’re not careful when the branches come down.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good but less than expected I'm a loyal Stihl customer. I own several products and had expectations. I like the saw and it cuts very well. It starts right up and is easy to use. I like that the shaft is thicker and has squared or flat sections on it to enhance durability. I like the plastic cover on the pole as well. The new telescope lock is fine but the directions could explain it better. You don't unlock it all the way, you just give it a half turn to expand. I took it all the way off the first few times and the locking rings got spread out and it was a pain. Simple directions could have prevented this. The stand is pointless and the hook under the blade is plastic. Come on Stihl! Plastic? On a commercial saw? The largest commercial saw you make? The bar is a little thin and not what I expect from Stihl. Also, I realize that there were probably tests done to determine that regular string and a regular pull handle were adequate, but when we are spending top dollar for the best saw you have, throw us a bone. Don't give us the cheapest handle you make and put on your cheaper home owner trimmers. Just give us the better handle. I feel like several steps were taken by Stihl to make this saw lightweight and cheaper, but for me they have added up to some disappointments. Overall, I'm happy with my purchase so far but this is the first Stihl purchase that I've made that I haven't been completely stoked about.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Saw head had broke once aleady, bar is cheap, head packs full of shavings immediately I bought this saw thinking it was going to be like previous Stihl pole pruners I have used in past. Bar is cheap and flimsy always getting pinched. Plastic head snapped completely on bottom. The tube becomes almost impossible to slide after using it for the day. It’ does start 1st pull and runs great has good power. The head fills up with shavings and if not cleaned couple times throughout day becomes rock hard. I shelled out lot of money in hopes would have the “ ultimate pole pruner” . I lost money on 2 neighbor jobs when head broke part was back ordered month or more. After numerous trips to dealer finally replaced it off new saw they had in box. If not I may still be waiting today. I use saw for personal use but couple neighbors asked to cut bottom oak branches. I have saw for sale in hopes to sell. What happened stihl?

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Cheap Poor Quality saw head on this expensive pole saw I purchased this saw in august of 2017 and with less than a tank of gas thru it the cheap plastic saw head has broke and was leaking oil all over the place and about to fall off of the pole. The saw bar is flimsy and easily pinched also the small chain will not stay seated properly on the bar no matter how tight or loose or perfect the tenision is set. The chain and cover does not have any ability to let the sawdust out and it seems to derail the small kerf chain. I believe the saw also has some issues with hitting the rev limiter it sounds like it cuts out really early before it hits the power band.Once the saw gets heated up I noticed every time I raised the saw vertically it would die and I would have to put it back on the ground and start it what a pain. .
