HT 133

HT 133
The ultimate telescoping pole pruner, built with the same features as the HT 103, but with a larger displacement engine.

Product Description

Reach for high branches with ease thanks to the HT 133 Pole Pruner. Its gearbox reduces weight at the cutting attachment compared to the previous model to provide easier handling and less fatigue. A powerful fuel-efficient, low-emission engine makes the HT 133 the ultimate choice for heavy tree maintenance tasks. Plus, with its squared shaft, users can prune high branches with ease and precision while the large fuel tank allows for 30% longer run times than the previous model. The HT 133 is packed with all the features of the HT 103, but with 35% more power for tough pruning and trimming jobs.

Reviews

HT 133 is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 34.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bad head unit I own a tree service. I have an older version of this product (could not select the actual product I have). Regardless, the older versions head unit was way better built and a lot more durable. I ordered a replacement head after a good year and a half of daily use and they sent me the new updated head. This thing is terrible. First they switched the side the blade is on. Why? It just doesn't make sense. Second, metal was replaced with cheap hard plastic. I am not happy with this product. Please update the older version and get rid of this.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does not touch the previous model On this product the adjuster for the telescoping shaft constantly gets clogged with saw dust, then the whole thing needs disassembled. The chain is to small and falls out of the bar even with proper chain tension. And the gearbox is a step backwards as well. The ht131 was a superior product, this is not a good product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pole Saws done right. I replaced my 22 year old HT75 with this 133. (the old one was on the side of my 4x4 when I hit a tree. It never did fail me.) The new one covered all my wishes over the old one . More power and it is a cutting machine. AND IT IS A STIHL.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Runs forever on a tank of gas So far so good runs a long time on a tank. Blade needs to be adjusted rarely. Means more cutting time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from HT-133 We have a Tree Service here in east/central Pa, all of our handheld equipment is Stihl, from saws to blowers.This HT-133 is the worst piece of garbage I've ever owned since I started buying Stihl in 2004. The cutting head is very Harbor Freight, not meant for comerical use as the head in made entirely of plastic and flexes horribly (went way overboard trying to save weight, waaaaaay overboard). The chain adjuster is already broken and engages on a hit and miss basis. The chain pops off on a regular basis too.One last gem, this head dosen't come with an anvil like its predecessors have, the HT-101 and HT-131, this anvil/lug on the bottom of the cutting head allows the head to capture the wood and hold it while the chain cuts, makes sense yes?I'm taking it back to the dealer to trade it in on a gallon of bar cutting oil!On a positive note, everything behind the cutting head all the way back to the motor has been very well thought out, especially the reinforced shaft as it can tolerate the occasional light to medium impacts much better. Another nice change was changing the on/off switch, that was always getting bumped while working with the HT-131. I'm currently in the market for a new HT-131, time is money in this competitive tree removal/trim business Stihl...please focus this particular saw to the commerical market .Thanks, Tony

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly recommend this pole saw. Very impressed with this new design, the square channel is more robust and moves in and out with ease. I have had both saws (the former one and this new one) and I just absolutely love it. Best pole saw I've ever used.
