    Absolute BEST Pole for Manual Pruning!
    This PP 800 is a killer telescoping pole: Lightweight and sturdy/strong at the same time. The 18 foot pole is REALLY 18 feet long (not like some other pole makers that calculate in the additional height of the person using it). So, add in about half your height, and you'll actually get a 20' to 22' reach. It's actually a joy to use because it doesn't bend or wobble - you can be very precise with your cutting. I've been through a few other polesaws and this one is a serious professional pole ... read more compared to any of the others. To finish your pole system out, get the ** PS 80 Arboriculture Saw attachment, and the ** Pole Pruner Lopper Attachment. The Saw and Lopper are both top notch pro tools as well! Can't be beat. No hesitation - Get it!

    Best pole saw made
    This saw is way above the competition. Ive used every pole saw know to man and the stihl cutting speed and rigidity of the saw blade are the best in the business. They dont last forever but thats the nature of this business, we wear out everything. Ive purchased 7 of them for my tree company so far. Highly recommended.

    More bang for your buck!!
    Started my morning trimming a mesquite tree with a cheapo from the Depot. Had to stop working and took a short drive my local hardware store which happens to carry Stihl. Had a gas pole saw in my sights and on my mind, when I just happened to see the PP 800. Didn't have the funds for exactly the one I wanted the gas combi. Was a bit apprehensive about picking up another manual pole saw, how much could the difference be. Well when I got out of the truck and reached for my newly purchased PP 800 ... read more and proceeded to saw to my heart's content with little to no effort. Got lost in what I was doing and before I knew it my wife had to slap me around to let me know that I had trimmed more than what I was supposed to. Awsome tool highly recommend for any job

    Wish I had paid the high price years ago
    Over the years I've purchased half a dozen pole mounted saw and clipper devices from those with ratcheting gears, long leverage arms, etc. NOTHING comes close the Stihl. Take care around the clipper blade. The first thing mine cut was the back of my knuckle as I pulled it from the packaging. I didn't feel the cut it was so sharp, and it effortlessly glides through sapwood limbs. With two hands on the rope and the pole against the trunk or a leg you can cut any living oak limb that will fit into ... read more the mouth of the cutter. The blade does not flex and makes a clean cut all the way through it's arc. I also bought the longest saw blade for its longer cutting stroke and to allow cutting larger diameter limbs. It has amazingly efficient teeth and the perfect angle. One or two pulls and it creates a deep enough groove to allow cutting on the pull AND push stroke. The little nub/stopper on the end prevents pulling the blade all the way through. A feature I didn't realize I wanted until I tried it. In a careless moment I left it in the fall area of a tree and the blade was bent over 90 degrees. However, when I freed the blade, it snapped back and remains straight as the day it was purchased. From the chainsaw protective chaps the screen faced hard hat, to all the chainsaws, chains, bars, Weed and Brush trimmers, oils and parts, there is no other "brand" that I have grown to trust so totally and across the entire product line. If they made cars, guns or anything else, I would be among the first buyers no matter the price.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    A perfect tool for difficult pruning jobs that would be impossible otherwise.
    A pricey specialty tool, but saves literally hours of time compared with trying to tackle pruning high branches by moving a step-ladder around and using a manual pole saw. This pole pruner allows me to complete needed chores that otherwise, realistically, would simply not get done. Excellent balance makes it feel lighter in use than its actual weight. Easy to aim and maneuver. Runs reliably. Narrow chain cuts well through even thick branches if you are patient and use correct angles. A gem of a ... read more product I wish I had bought 16 years ago.

    A great product!
    I needed a saw that would eliminate the need of a ladder and a saw! At the age of 73, I needed a change! This works perfectly. Boots on the ground, and no more tumbles while pruning my crape myrtles!

    Awesome for tree stand pruning!
    I bought this to help trim out shooting lanes for my bow hunting. Boy does this thing save time and really lets me reach out and cut branches. Spend the money and you won't be disappointed. All my hunting buddies want to borrow it!
