Product Description

This fixed length pole pruner is a cordless, low-maintenance and environmentally responsible option for professionals and homeowners alike. Running on an advanced 36-volt Lithium-Ion battery, the HTA 65 eliminates the need for fuel and two-cycle oil, and considerably reduces maintenance needs.

HTA 65 is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than expected While I always expect good results from any Stihl product, this pole pruner exceeded my expectations. Great power, easy to use, does not use as much batter power as I expected and that is a good thing.Can't go wrong with this item and I would highly recommend it to my friends.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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 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).
