STIHL pole pruners put high trimming jobs within reach, giving you the power and precision to trim once-inaccessible branches down to size. You may not be able to identify every component of STIHL technology at work, but you’ll feel it in your hands: The balanced weight. The smooth cutting operation. Every integral part working together as you take down limbs – all while standing firmly on the ground. Whether gasoline-powered or powered manually, STIHL pole pruners are easy to operate, easy to carry and easy to maintain. It’s a win/win/win for homeowners and professionals alike.

As a cutting system, STIHL gasoline-powered pole pruners feature a low-emission, fuel-efficient engine. They not only save you money on fuel costs, they also run cleaner than traditional engines. They’re crafted using automatic oiling OILOMATIC® saw chains and Ematic™ guide bars – the same technology found in our legendary chainsaws.

    Great Reach and Power
    This pole saw is an excellent tool for cutting lower branches in the juniper and pine trees on my property. It cut through branches as thick as 8 inches with ease. As I moved about on my property, which is on a hillside, I would turn the saw off but then it would start again with just a gentle pull of the starter rope without even disconnecting the strap or placing it on the ground. The pole is strong and provides excellent reach to high branches. It is reasonably lightweight, but after ... read more prolonged use, can feel heavy. It stores easily in my garage since the pole disconnects simply, allowing me to hang both the saw end and the motor end on the wall.

    Great features at a great price
    Purchased this pole pruner to replace an old Poulan Pole Pruner with the assistance of the knowledgeable staff at Hope Mills Saw and Mower. They asked what my needs were and matched me to a couple of different pole pruners. Based upon my great experience with other Stihl products and the sales price on this unit, I purchased it. I've used it twice and it provides a quick start, runs smoothly and does a great job of cutting branches. I would highly recommend both the outstanding staff at Hope ... read more Mills Saw and Mower and the Stihl Pole Pruner for all of your outdoor power equipment needs.

    Ideal for the home owner.
    I have enjoy this saw on many projects so far. I am disappointed that the cover (dust cover cap) for the exposed ends when the saw is broken down in 2 pieces for storage and transporting was not in the package when I bought it was not in with the tools/manual package. This item was mention in the manual as it being supplied with saw but the Stihl dealer it was not included, I can only assume since it came already assembled on display that the dealer thought it was just shipping material and ... read more threw it away when they assembled it for display.

    Typical Stihl Quality
    Bought this to trim some branches that I had to keep moving out of my way when mowing my lawn. Sliced through Red Oak limbs like they were nothing. Very sharp, great quality. A little pricey, but a lifetime warranty goes a long way to offset the price.

    Great for reaching branches in high places.
    I purchased the PP100 several years ago to prune branches on my property. It has proven to be an excellent hand tool for trimming and for reaching those hard to get branches. I would recommend the PP100 for those that demand HIGH QUALITY tools in their arsenal! You will be amazed at the size branches this tool will handle. Very useful tool!

    My go-to tool for trees
    Love, Love, Love this pruner! A must-have for tree trimming. I have run over them with my truck & still works like a charm. The tool that comes up missing because everyone else wants to use it.

    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.

    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.

    Powerful, quiet Polesaw.
    This saw was hard to get because nobody in the area could get them. After a few months, I found one, and snapped it up. I already had the HLA-65 hedge trimmer, and was sold on the Stihl battery products. My initial thought was that the saw was heavier than I expected, especially when it was extended to full length. That said, it is still a couple of pounds lighter than my low end gas pole saw. Once I got to actually use the saw on some trees, I was blown away by how well it cut. I was only ... read more trimming branches about 2 inches diameter about 15 feet off of the ground. This saw cut through them so easy it was a surprise. The branches were falling to the ground about a second after I put the saw to them. After about 5 minutes of use, I had a large pile of branches and limbs on the ground to dispose of. I thought I might use the pole saw to cut them shorter while they were on the ground, but that was difficult due to the weight being extended at the end of the pole. I may get the battery chainsaw some day to replace my Stihl Farmboss chainsaw. The battery equipment seems like the way to go for me.

    If the future is battery power, bring it on!
    Love this. Not a single negative. Plenty of power for trimming without the hassle and noise of gas. When I was done using it the first time I was going to use my Stihl chainsaw to cut up some logs from trees that I had taken down earlier. I had a hard time getting the gas chainsaw going so I grabbed the pole trimmer. It had no problem cutting through a 14' log multiple times.

    Love this unit - does more than expected
    My wife had purchased the battery powered string trimmer a few years ago and we love it. I had decided I needed a pole pruner and had looked at gas powered units. I decided on the Stihl battery powered unit - we already had the battery and charger. I have used it several times for many different jobs. It has cut everything that I have felt safe cutting and some I haven't. It is heavier than lower priced units but will cut much more than they will. I have never had it bog down on a limb and have ... read more cut some at almost 8 inches in diameter. I am very happy with this unit and will be buying other Stihl battery powered units.

    Awesome Machine
    Awesome engine design as a 4 stroke without a oil sump which has to use gas/oil mixture. Not sure how long this design has been on the market for durability but I'm giving its low end power and light weight an A+.

    Outstanding!
    I've had a Stihl pro chainsaw for 25 years and it's super reliable, also have a Stihl gas leaf blower. Big fan of Stihl products. I bought this pole pruner to replace a lousy battery powered one that was always frustrating to use. This saw is very well balanced, starts easy and idles perfectly. The chain is staying tight and is quite amazing in cutting power. I've been trimming live oak limbs (dense and hard wood) and this powers right through. Unless I'm cutting down an entire tree, this is ... read more my go-to saw. I do have one complaint, the design of the engine housing needs to be improved. As it is now the saw can't easily be stored in a vertical position - it doesn't have a flat space to rest on. I always have to fiddle with it to get it to stay in one position. Stihl has not solicited my review - I'm just a happy owner. Oh, I'm also 70 years old, in fairly good physical condition and handling this saw is well within my capability.

    good pole pruner
    what I see in reviews loggers need to be able to place metal cover rather than plastic. was farmers son cut lots of woods for more field space crops. was a professional firefighter for 36 yrs, loggers & firefighters are hard on the equipment we don't have time be easy going. loggers time is money (and lives)-firefighters time saves lives. Stihl needs really look at what professional can change make the job better give use tool to do so. you make the BEST of all equipment keep it going.
