    The saw cuts very fast, power is not a problem
    Just bought this saw today to trim some tall oaks around my cabin. The saw is heavy with the large battery but is well balance with included carrying strap. Saw cuts very fast using little power from the battery. I used the saw for over an hour going around trees trimming branch, the instant start and stop make for quick work and long battery life. The saw cost held me back for awhile, but this is a professional tool that is well designed and work extremely well. No ladder is needed to trim ... read more trees around a two story house.

    Powerful for a battery powered device
    The battery on the HTA 85 lasts longer than I do on a tree trimming project. The 12" bar allows for cutting large limbs. Much of my trimming is with the pole at maximum extension, and it is a bit unwieldy being so long. But trim it does! Small branches or larger limbs are cut quickly. The motor is quiet enough that ear muffs are not required. Just push the trigger and the chain starts. Release the trigger and the motor stops. The unit is easy to clean, as there is only one nut to loosen to ... read more remove the cover or adjust chain tension. All in all, I'm impressed with this pole saw, plenty of power, easy to use, and the construction seems rugged.

    Quiet, Powerful
    I have been considering the battery powered line of tools from Stihl, because I hate when a tool won't start. For tools that I use a lot, weed eater, blower, etc, this is not a problem. Even my small (021) chainsaw runs often enough so that I don't usually have a problem. But my hedge trimmer, and my large saw, don't get used all that often, and I am always concerned that I need to fully drain the tank, and carb each time I use them. So when I decided to get a pole pruner, I looked at the ... read more battery line again. It is more expensive to start. For the complete set, battery, charger and tool, it cost about 25% more, but now I have the charger, and a battery, so if I decide to replace another tool, I will definitely consider battery power. So on to the meat of the review: The saw has plenty of power for the trimming I was doing. I was trimming branches 6-8" in diameter, and it didn't bog down at all. I used it for about an hour (obviously not running the saw all the time), and I got tired before the saw did. When I finished up, I still had about half the battery left, according to the LED display. The saw was heavier than I would have liked, but still lighter than the gas powered unit, and handled pretty well, even reaching higher than I probably should have safely done. I like the quiet of the saw, if for nothing else, I could hear when the limbs were starting to crack, so that I could get out of the way. All-in-all, I am very pleased with the saw, and I will consider other electric tools from Stihl. I don't regret this purchase at all.

    New favorite saw
    I own a commercial apple orchard. I just bought the HTA65 but ALSO own the HTA85 which I have had for 2 years now. I considered the HTA85 my best saw purchase but found it a bit heavy to work with. So, checking the specs on the HTA65 I took the chance and bought the fixed length version. While it is only a couple of pounds lighter, the weight savings is all in the upper half of the pruner. But not only is it lighter but its about 1 foot shorter than the HTA85 , which puts the saw head closer ... read more making the mechanical advantage better and adding to the much lighter feel of the saw. 99.9 percent of my cuts don't need the extension of the HTA85 so the HTA65 is now my "go to" saw. Huge difference after pruning and cutting for a while. I find that I use the pole saw for 80% of my chain saw work now. Also, I can let ANYONE use this saw! No chance of kickback injury or leg injury ( at least not to the operator).
