Product Description

Some tree cutting jobs are so precise they feel more like tree surgery. That's when you need the PP 800. When equipped with a lopper or saw head attachment, the PP 800 provides precision cuts for those hard-to-reach-places, but durable enough to handle your busy workload. Part of the STIHL Precision Series™, this telescoping pole features a lightweight 4.7-lb. aluminum body and engineered box design, minimizing flex when fully extended. Combined with a working reach of over 18’ above ground, this pole saw is the ideal choice for precise lopping or sawing tasks.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from pole i have 3 and a medium size company. we use mainly for palms, probably 1000 per year. works great. you can improve the blade by making the small chopping blade double sided. the locking on the poles last a season. we drill the pole out and use pins. could be made better. however i could not do these palms without it

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Feels solid and of great professional quality I purchased the PP800 and the saw and lopper attachments. I immediately started trimming up limbs and branches blocking my view of the lake. The pole weight seemed perfect and helped to keep the saw in the cutting groove. While a bit expensive, I absolutely love this uncommonly excellent set of pruning tools. I encountered a problem, however, within the first 30 minutes of work. There are two sliding sections. The lower section can be positioned anywhere and then locked into place with the installed plastic clamp. However, the upper section must be positioned so the spring balls engage with the holes in the pole. Not intuitive at all. Failure to engage the spring balls in the holes resulted in the upper section moving back and forth which quickly resulted in the spring getting pushed down the inside of the pole. The dealer repaired the pole but they worked on it for nearly two hours and when returned to me, the upper spring balls are slightly askew which will likely cause future problems. This does not seem to be a good design, but maybe it will be ok. By the way, a label on the pole does say that the upper section must be engaged at the holes which is not the case for the lower section even though they have the same clamping mechanism. You would not think that a pole comes with a critical instruction that is not pointed out by the dealer and not tagged with a CAUTION. Failure to heed this critical instruction will render the pole extension inoperable in a short time if my experience is any indication.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from No durability I've bought several of these pole pruners and they rarely last longer than a month before the locking mechanisms begin to fail.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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 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

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just bought my 4th one! I just purchased my fourth PP800 Pole! These aluminum poles from STIHL cannot be matched by anyone out there! When you spend the money,and don't go "CHEAP", you get exactly what you pay for from STIHL. Absolutely the HIGHEST of QUALITY from STIHL! You should NOT expect anything less than the BEST from STIHL ! Not inexpensive, but worth every cent! Go get one!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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 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
