    Excellent Product
    I bought the HT 103 to cut branches on 15 acre farm which has many low hanging limbs on the field edges that hit you in the face while running a bush-hog with the tractor. I'm very experienced with chainsaws and cut professionally for a period of time. This is my first season with the saw and thus far I am ecstatic with the performance. Being able to extend the reach and function has been superb.

    well engineered product
    This pruner is a beast. I brought it home and immediately began trimming limbs up to 6" in diameter with no hesitation. It was easy to extend and even at full extension performed exactly as I had hoped. Balance is good and controls are located so as to be safe and easy to use. I held off a long time purchasing this saw as it seemed expensive to me, however, it was worth the money and I don't mind paying the price when I get the quality. I have a Stihl line trimmer and chain saw and would not own ... read more any other brand of equipment. I have had other brands in the past which have all been disappointing and ended up being disposable when it came to any repairs. I have six acres of property, all lined by woods and over-hanging trees. This pruner earns it's keep.

    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.

    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

    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.

    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

    It's lightweight, but stiff and strong
    Even though I have an HT-250 pruner, I was surprised at how often I reached for this one when cleaning up properties and improving sight lines at corner properties. It's quick, easy, light, strong, and after 15 months of use, the blade is still sharp. Moreover, I use it to limb long branches once they're on the ground, making them easier to load onto the truck. Great tool!

    great pole saw with small weakness
    The telescoping aspect is great. Don't need to add extensions on and off, make you save a tonne of time. The blade is well design but could be a bit narrower for easier access in between branches. The big down is the locking mechanism is a plastic that cracks after a while. Rubber bumper at the end wears off pretty fast if you don't pay attention.

    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+.

    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!

    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

    Great pruner, but light duty only.
    This review pertains to the current model PP-101, which my dealer tells me has superceded the PP-100. Mine was purchased in April 2019. Pros: -Extremely lightweight, you can use it for a long time without feeling any strain. -The blades are also impressively sharp right out of the box--far better than any pruning shears you'll find at a home improvement store. In my opinion the blades are every bit as good as a certain Swiss maker of pruners which is the gold standard in the industry. Co ... read more ns: -The light weight comes with a price--which is that I'm unsure about the long term durability of this product. The shaft is a very thin walled aluminum tube; there's no doubt this works fine if you take care of your tools, but if you treat them rough I can see problems. When I bought this unit the first one that my dealer ordered in for me was bent during shipping. I can see that might happen very easily. If you are a landscaper or a contractor and you want to toss this in the back of a truck with other tools I don't think it would last very long. Ditto if you want to use it for larger/heavier work. There is a hook on the head of the tool to pull down cut branches, but I'd be wary of pulling hard with it. Also, the thin steel rod that transfers the force from the hand lever up to the blade is quite small and that does not inspire confidence. I'm sure I can squeeze the handle far harder than the tool can take. I'd keep in mind that this tool is NOT a replacement for a lopper, or even close to it. Stick with using it for small size branches and I'm sure it will last a long time.
