Rated 5 out of 5 by from A fine trimmer I've used this pole saw a lot -- even more than I thought I would when I bought it. It's a handy item to have and makes cutting limbs a lot easier. It starts easily and runs great. It's a little heavy, but I'm old and puny and I'm sure that's not a problem for others. In any case, it's a nice product and I heartily recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Purchase! I purchased this about two weeks ago and immediately began using it. It has been great! It saws easily through branches whether dead or alive. Being able to reach areas needing pruning has made my yard look significantly better. It is easy to use and the shoulder belt is very adequate for balancing the weight of the product. It starts easily, just make sure to keep the chain oil filled as you will spend more time cutting branches than probably planned.. I highly recommend this product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from HT 56 C POLE PRUNER Easy to start and smooth running. Saves me lots of time. It is very convenient that this pole pruner comes apart for storage, but Stihl should make an accessory extension to put in the middle for added length.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful, lightweight, convenient This is a good pole trimmer for a homeowner, powerful enough to cut hard dead live oak limbs and goes through overgrown green limbs on a Bradford pear like a knife through butter. Being a 2 piece model means easy transport and easy storage. Starting is effortless. It's fairly lightweight. My only caution, 15 minutes cutting with this saw can create an hour's worth of picking up.
