Rated 4 out of 5 by from Engineer An Adjustable Angle Version Works well for 1" - 2" diameter branches but be careful with larger higher branches with inability to undercut a horizontal without an adjustable head. The limb tends to hinge and fall toward operator because the diagonal under and over cut. Definitely recommend this design as-is for some jobs because less moving parts equals less problems. However, I am hoping the stellar engineering department at STIHL combines the adjustability in their 135 degrees HL-KM hedge trims with a chainsaw head for the larger higher reach limbs. I will definitely buy it IF they read this and decide they want to market it. Keeping my fingers crossed. Thank you in advance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use and powerful. Since I am a small woman, I was a little worried about the weight of the unit but it is balanced and not that heavy at all. The chain stays tight and the oiler works great. I have only used it about three hours so far, so good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than a small chainsaw I have used mine several years and it has been more than expected. I use it on trails, around deer stands and I cut a lot more than I should. If you need trails trimmed and maintained, this is a "no brainer". Keep oil in it and a sharp blade and you will be happy.Stihl is a constant in quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from If you want to cut from afar, this tool is fantastic! I had to trim some locusts trees and you know what that mean! Stickers that hurt! I used this tool to trim up the branches and did not end up looking like a well used pin cushion. I will say, with the extension, it's pretty heavy on the end so you have to pay close attention to what you're doing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use, got the first job done great! Needed to trim small branches and some shrubs that were just too high to reach, and too dangerous to try to get with a ladder. LOVED the pruner attachment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding tool! i use this all the time. IT WORKS GREAT. I use it with an older power head which i think is the least powerful of the group when I purchased it but this thing cuts anything I throw at it. Keep the chain shape and it will cut anything up to its 12" capacity. Just a first rate tool. I use it hard and it has been bulletproof. I would give it six stars if I could.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great add-on to the Kombi-System I recently purchased a KM130R because I own investment properties and I thought it'd be easier to have one engine and multiple different attachments rather than maintaining multiple engines. Little did I know how much I was going to like the pruner attachment as much as I do. This thing is great! My mother owns 8 acres and has at least a 1/4 mile driveway that is tree covered. It pained me to visit her when I bought my brand new truck knowing the amount of scratches that were being put in it from all the branches. I decided to purchase the pruner attachment and extension and wow was I happy with the purchase. The 12" bar sails right through anything and my truck will remain scratch free. I've even used it for buckin' trees before splitting. My KM130R hardly bogs down with this attachment on and makes very short work of anything it meets. Although the initial cost scared me I'm very glad I decided to purchase it. I want to thank Stihl for making such an innovative product and maintaining their level of excellence in the equipment they make. Keep up the good work and my Kombi-System arsenal will continue to expand.
