    Great maul
    Split a bunch of red oak with this maul, and was very impressed how much better it was than my old cheap maul. Wish I would have gotten one of these years ago. I like the steel collar, really protects the handle.

    PRO SPLITTING MAUL Costs the Price of QUALITY!
    I've heard some dealers grumble about the price of Stihl Hand Tools, but it comes down to this...YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR ! Ochsenkopf (Ox Head)- produced steel tools are made of high-quality German steel...a wise vendor choice by Stihl. This maul will hold an edge. Grab the handle and appreciate the hefty girth and shape. That, in itself, will reduce your percentage of overstrikes, but in the event they happen...a steel sleeve is there to protect your handle. You won't find these features on ... read more cheaply-produced products. This maul may not fly off the shelves, but it won't fly out of your hands either! Just to be clear...I am not a dealer. I bought the Pro Splitting Hatchet primarily to pound wedges while felling, the Pro Splitting Axe for chopping small-to-medium rounds, and now the Pro Splitting Maul for opening up large rounds. My cheaper substitutes will go out in the next estate sale. I'm done using junk! Just look at it this way: This maul costs less, per pound, than you'll pay for jumbo prawns from your local grocer...and, it won't contribute to water & sewer bill the next day!

    This is a wood smashing beast!
    Huge face for driving my wedges. Awesome sleeve for over strikes. Excellent head attachment. Makes me feel like Thor when I'm using it. Not for wimps. Super satisfying feel when using compared to all the other mauls I have ever used. Hook on end of ax face is super handy. An instant favorite tool of mine. Just get it and swing it like you mean it. You'll be glad you did.

    Great product
    Great product a real time saver went right through oak and pine limbs without problems. Very little effort required so you can get the job done. I used this with the ms460 and ms180 and makes quick work of the trees. 32 inch handles save your back also especially if your over 6 foot.

    Packs a punch!
    I was amazed how effortless it was to cut off thick branches with this lopper. I felt like I did not have to use any excessive amount of force like other cheaper ones I bought in the past from the garden department of the the big box stores. This tool is well made and very lightweight. I was delighted by the ease of the handling and the rubber soft grips were very nice to hold onto. The blades are razor sharp!!!

    Very Sharp Hand saw.
    I use this to limb live oaks within reach in my yard. It works very well. I have cut branches up to 4 inchs and it worked flawlessly. It is light weight and extremely sharp. Mine states that it was made in Japan and the quality shows it. The blade has not bent even when a limb’s weight pinches it. The blade’s angle allows for powerful cutting stroke without putting your weight down. This allows the blade to do the work and reduces the chance of a pinch or bend. Since I am cutting wet wood ... read more I will tell you that you need to clean the blade before storage to avoid rust and gum-ups that will cause it to pinch.

    Superb Pruning Saw
    I own a 40+ acre property in the mountains of North Central Washington State with thousands of trees (aspen, ponderosa pine, Douglas fir, cottonwood, etc.). I purchased this pruning saw to trim the lower branches of the trees (in wildfire country we call them "ladder fuels"). This saw cuts cleanly and quickly through branches up to 3" in diameter, whether dry, wet or green. I also purchased a Stihl 900 Pole pruner to take care of larger and higher branches (the widow-makers). That allows me to ... read more cut branches and trim trees up to 15 or more feet off the ground. I have 4 Stihl chain saws and several other Stihl products. All are of superb quality (German engineering) and reliable. You never go wrong with a Stihl.

    Cuts with ease
    I just bought this saw and have been used it all day. Cuts very well with great ease. Unlike other cheaper saws that I have, this one doesn't bind. I recommend the leather sheath. The teeth are very sharp. I also like the saw for its fine cut. I will be going back to the supplier to get an additional PS 70.

    PP 70
    This hand pruner is the best I have ever used, let alone held! The locking feature is easy to unlock but is very secure when not in use. The price may scare some homeowners/landscapers away, but the quality of the blades are amazing and can be removed to be sharpened, unlike many professional hand pruners out there. Amazing hand pruner for all jobs, from cutting flowers to trimming small branches! I do recommend the hand pruner leather sheath for easy transport!

    Very nice.
    Great leverage and action. Light and strong. We have had 3 pairs. Sort of difficult to buy as local dealers don't all carry the hand tools.

    Excellent Pruners
    I just purchased my third pair after I noticed I'd sharpened the blade considerably. The shears are an excellent design, and a feature often overlooked is the plating. STIHL's will clean-up easily with alcohol or STIHL's hedge trimmer lubricant. I've tried other brands in my trimming business but come back to STIHL's. I also recommend their hand held hedge trimmers. They too work equally as well. Using steel wool and STIHL's trimming lubricant will take the sap off the blades nicely. ... read more I rate both STIHL's products a 5 star.

    Great little snips
    Use these snips everyday during pruning season. Underpowered for larger stems but perfect for younger water saps.
