    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.

    You Get What You Pay For
    I have a 7 acre property with many trees that require pruning. I recently returned a 'disposable' pole saw from another manufacturer and decided to spend more money on the STIHL HT103 and I couldn't be happier! The durability and ease of operation are amazing. Additionally the reach provided by the telescoping action on this model makes it a breeze to get those higher branches. Disclaimer that I have only had a couple days of use on it but it has quickly become my new favorite. I am hoping that ... read more its longevity rivals that of my other STIHL purchases. One warning is that this saw is so easy to use and does such a good job that I found myself cutting ahead of what I could haul away to the burn pile! Overall a great product in a league of its own.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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+.

    Unbeatable quality and utility.
    I have owned this product for 2 years now and I just love using it. Mine has the old style handle and the new ones feel much better. The old models had one tiny problem that was easily fixed. There is a small screw that acts as a stopper so that you don't rotate the handle completely as this would twist the innards and break something, and the screw was prone to falling out after extensive use. A drop of light epoxy on the screw threads and mine stayed put--easy fix. Now I use this for ... read more pruning just about everything: Japanese Maples, fruit trees, tall vines like Ivy and Jasmine, pittosporum, etc. It's also a great tool for pruning anything with thorns like reaching into a thick lime tree or large bougainvillea. This tool is very strong and can take a lot of abuse. I frequently leave this pruner outside and it shows no signs of corrosion anywhere. After 2 seasons of use the blade still cuts well despite never being sharpened. I have used both hands to squeeze the handle as hard as I can while trying to cut something i probably should have used another tool for, and I'm a fairly strong person at 6' 3" 275. I love tools that need no babying or hand-holding as they go through life and this pruner is just beyond exceptional in its durability. Yes I'm sure if you drove over it something bad would happen, but if you're driving over your tools, well, you have other more important problems you ought to deal with. This pruner saves you from having to use a ladder which increases both safety and efficiency. With this pruner it's nice to be able to make your cuts and be able to step back and assess your progress whereas with a ladder you have to keep going up and down the ladder. Anyway I probably sound like I'm a sales rep for this product or something but I can assure you that's not true. My affection for this tool is rooted in the fact that it makes my job easier, faster, and safer while costing very little and asking nothing in terms of maintenance. Keep the blade clean and you're good to go. I hope you enjoy this pruner as much as I do.

    prefect for small limbs
    for limbs too little for saws. I have huge tree on my farm and there is always a little limb that is just to small for the saws. this thing is prefect.

    Works well for small branches
    The PP 101, I find, is very handy for light trimming. It is light, very precise, made with Stihl quality and cuts through fruit tree branches, up to about 1/2 inch, easily. I would like to have a shorter one, maybe 3 or 4 feet, for trimming roses and hard to reach plants.

    Really love the product, but I wish one thing could be improved
    Overall I don't think I have ever used a better extension pole. I will say that I wish the third section was a little more durable. I was cutting a large limb and it fell and twisted and bent the third section slightly. The pole is still useable, but it doesn't collapse all the way. The weight is abolutely amazing compared to a fiberglass pole.

    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!

    This saw makes me look good every time I use it!
    Cutting trees and limbs that are right up against buildings, or could fall on objects, are easily dismantled from the top down and safely brought down. It's like having an 18 foot long surgeons scalpel and people are amazed when they see it in action. This is a professional quality tool and the best pole saw that I've ever used.
