Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb Tool I have 40+ acres of property with literally thousands of trees. I have used a ladder and hand pruners for years with mixed results. I finally decided to purchase a STIHL pole pruner. It is lightweight, easy to use, and very, very effective. the lopper takes down 1"+ branches, including hard dead wood, with ease. The pruning saw is very sharp, durable and cuts 2+" branches in seconds. I wish I had purchased one earlier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.
