Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome power Bought this trimmer to cut branches and boy did it do a great job...definitely recommend April 17, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by More power than I thought I haven't used the saw a lot yet, that's why I didn't rate it higher. I did a lot of footwork before I bought the pole saw. I've had great performance with Stihl saw's in the past cutting wood for home use. Ask me again in 6 months Stihl and I'll be able to give you a correct rating.Jim G., Tonasket, WA. April 8, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by excellent product with many great features I purchased this product about 6 months ago and have used it numerous times with great results.It has always been dependable and starts very easily.It doe s get heavy if you do a lot of cutting so i purchased the ht carrier system.Overall it is an excellent product and i would highly recommend it.Another fine Stihl product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Does the job - every time! I bought another brand pruner a few years back, but it couldn't do the jobs I needed. This Stihl starts, runs, and cuts every time. It also telescopes out to twice the height. With it I can reach branches that had always been too high. After a while it does get heavy, but that's a reasonable trade-off for what this machine can do. December 5, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by STIHL makes great reliable products. The HT 101Pole Trimmer is no exception. I've had the STHIL HT 101 Pole trimmer for about a year. It starts up every time on one or two pulls. The extension upgrade is well worth the price versus the HT 100. Set the blade and let it cut away. There are cheaper competitive models on the market. Pay the extra amount for the STHIL and you can look forward to many years of reliable and consistent performance. October 6, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Great unit, Just need three operators Love this unit I really do but it is not well balanced for one person use. I got this to make life easier since some injuries but really think it should have some kind of straps and system to make it much more balanced. So much for a unit that didn't re-injure my neck and shoulder. October 5, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by HT 101 is a quality polesaw but a bit heavy and pricy A good neighbor has always lent me his HT 101 as needed. But afraid that I'd damage his by accident.. I decided to buy one of my own. The first job I had for it was to trim 7 very tall palm trees and several live oak trees. All this work was preformed from a lift bucket where I had little room to move. The HT 101 started on the first or second pull without fail every time. Making the job a lot easier. This unit is a bit heavy and when it is fully extended it can be a hand full. But it worked flawlessly on its first job. The power was suitable for the task. I used my Stihl MS250 chainsaw on large branches. But all others were cut with the HT101. My neighbor has owned his HT101 for about 5 years and it has always preformed great.. I am very satisfied with my purchase... October 4, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Dependable Saw Great product for the price. This saw started 1st pull every time. September 12, 2014
