    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.

    Completely awesome yard tool
    My 14 year old 12' Pole saw finally broke for good. I debated buying a 21' Japanese saw for awhile then I happened to see this Stihl saw at my local ace store. Once I had it in my hands It felt just great and was lighter than I expected. Made the ace manager measure the saw and it was almost 19' to the base of the saw blade. Took it home and started trimming my Queen palm trees and did t stop until it was dark! Very powerful saw blade and the ligament and hook cutting blades were super ... read more sharp. This Stihl was an absolute pleasure to use and its light weight and grip didn't tire this old 59 yo man! My only regret is not buyi g this a year ago

    Useful
    I have gone through several other brands of pole pruners and this one tops them all. Its extended reach is astounding. It cuts through anything. Its expensive but well worth it. I don't really like how the lopper attachment comes with such a short rope and it doesn't even come attached but thats a simple fix. Just have to buy a longer rope.

    Stihl brand is #1 for a reason.
    As a homeowner I chose the HT 103 model because of the telescoping 16 foot reach. This new model has an easy to use shaft lock. Gloves on or off to do this. The chain bar oil refill works great, but this is a gloves off cap to open for me. That's ok...I'm not in a race to do this process anyway. Day one first time use, I would start it up and let it run for a while to break in. I had started the saw and it went dead a couple times. After this saw is warmed up (30 minutes or so) it is good to ... read more go. You won't have to ever do this again. This saw has never quit running after the day one process. I used it on day one without any readjustments. After day two I did tighten the chain a little which was easy to do with a half turn with the included wrench. I have now used this saw at the neighbors house and a few others... you can easily make your money back if you wanted to with this saw. For storing this saw. I hung two rubber coated hooks from the ceiling/wall of my shed. When I sat the saw on the hooks, the saw wanted to swing upside down. I don't want to store this saw upside down. So I reinstalled the hooks closer to the wall so the motor of the saw touches the wall keeping the saw upright. Overall. I love this saw. I will buy other Stihl products. The hedger and edger are next on my list.

    Easy to start and use.
    Nothing but a Stihl for me. Used my new ht 103 pole saw as soon as I got home from the dealer. Plenty of power and starts every time. Made fast work of the low hanging limbs around my property.

    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.

    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!
