Pole Pruners

Smooth, precise cutting that makes quick work of tall branches

STIHL pole pruners put high trimming jobs within reach, giving you the power and precision to trim once-inaccessible branches down to size. You may not be able to identify every component of STIHL technology at work, but you’ll feel it in your hands: The balanced weight. The smooth cutting operation. Every integral part working together as you take down limbs – all while standing firmly on the ground. Whether gasoline-powered or powered manually, STIHL pole pruners are easy to operate, easy to carry and easy to maintain. It’s a win/win/win for homeowners and professionals alike.

As a cutting system, STIHL gasoline-powered pole pruners feature a low-emission, fuel-efficient engine. They not only save you money on fuel costs, they also run cleaner than traditional engines. They’re crafted using automatic oiling OILOMATIC® saw chains and Ematic™ guide bars – the same technology found in our legendary chainsaws. These exclusive parts improve cutting efficiency and reduce wear, improving your cutting potential.

When you choose to use a manual approach, STIHL is also committed to providing you with unique attention to every detail in our durable line of hand tools – the STIHL Precision Series™ pole pruners are crafted with long life, high-carbon tool steel blades that can be sharpened or replaced, and strong lightweight handles that can help you reach limbs up to 18’ above ground.

Note: STIHL recommends use of fuel with no more than 10% ethanol content. Using fuel with greater than 10% ethanol content may cause damage to your equipment and may void your STIHL warranty. Learn More…

    awesome
    i am a home user, was looking for pole saw, Stihl came recommended from a friend who owns almost all the saws Stihl makes, i am only 150 lbs, very lean and thin person, even this one feels heavy after an hour of cutting, still i had so much fun with this saw. it starts with one pull almost all the time, easy2start makes starting so easy i think my 10 yr old daughter can start it. once started it cuts branches like butter, nothing will be able to stop this saw, i have cut oak~pine with ease. i ... read more would recommend this pole saw over any other brand at any time. after i was done with my backyard, i volunteered to clean up my friends backyard. too much fun!!

    Great Reach and Power
    This pole saw is an excellent tool for cutting lower branches in the juniper and pine trees on my property. It cut through branches as thick as 8 inches with ease. As I moved about on my property, which is on a hillside, I would turn the saw off but then it would start again with just a gentle pull of the starter rope without even disconnecting the strap or placing it on the ground. The pole is strong and provides excellent reach to high branches. It is reasonably lightweight, but after ... read more prolonged use, can feel heavy. It stores easily in my garage since the pole disconnects simply, allowing me to hang both the saw end and the motor end on the wall.

    easy to use
    this is a good product. I had about 10 trees to prune on my property. The saw worked very well and was easy to handle. I have had STIHL chain saws all of my adult life. I still have a old Super 45 Av chain saw that is running well when needed that is 35 years old or so. I think this pole saw will last as long. I also have 2 other STIHL chain saw and a leaf blower. They all work well

    ULTIMATE saw for pruning limbs.
    I purchased the PS 80 Arboriculture saw with the PP800 extending pole several years ago to do high trimming in my wooded lot. I have found it to be easy to use, well balanced and light. Even fully extended, this saw performed well. GREAT VALUE for the price.

    Perfect
    This 16" hardened steel saw is an incredible value. I own an HT131 but prefer this PS80 with PP180 telescoping pole for most of my pruning. It powers through thick hardwood limbs with astounding speed and keeps on going for longer than any other saw I have owned! Blades cannot be sharpened but the longevity of this saw makes its price a bargain.

    Outstanding!
    I've had a Stihl pro chainsaw for 25 years and it's super reliable, also have a Stihl gas leaf blower. Big fan of Stihl products. I bought this pole pruner to replace a lousy battery powered one that was always frustrating to use. This saw is very well balanced, starts easy and idles perfectly. The chain is staying tight and is quite amazing in cutting power. I've been trimming live oak limbs (dense and hard wood) and this powers right through. Unless I'm cutting down an entire tree, this is ... read more my go-to saw. I do have one complaint, the design of the engine housing needs to be improved. As it is now the saw can't easily be stored in a vertical position - it doesn't have a flat space to rest on. I always have to fiddle with it to get it to stay in one position. Stihl has not solicited my review - I'm just a happy owner. Oh, I'm also 70 years old, in fairly good physical condition and handling this saw is well within my capability.

    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+.

    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.

    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!

    the best there is
    Sold my off brand lopper and just bought this high quality lopper attachment....bought the pp800 pole I believe and at 18 feet high cutting the branches is so easy I don't even have to use the 8ft step ladder anymore...the easy pull of the rope and instant cut is just so easy and its so heavy duty and yet lightweight....another too notch quality product from STIHL....! I always clean it with Stihl penetrating oil and the razor sharp cutter stays clean as new and the tree sap won't corrode or ... read more rust the lopper either...you won't believe how it is so easy to use and precise point of cut on the branch . Thanks STIHL!

    Great Product But......
    Bought this Lopper Attachment for my PP800 Telescoping pole. The product is top of the line and definitely makes life easier and keeps me from having to climb trees to prune. However, there are a couple of issues that I had with my purchase. First of all, the unit shows an eyebolt to attach the rope too - had to purchase this myself which is ridiculous. I also did not like the quality of the rope supplied with the unit and so I went to Lowes and bought a 25ft section of 3/8" Twisted Poly Rope ... read more with a 3/8" Rope Clamp and Thimble Set. Once I attached the eyebolt, rope and clamp and thimble, I am very pleased with the Lopper Attachment. When you buy a Stihl product, you don't expect to have to buy other items in order to use the product. I believe that this needs to be looked into by quality control.
