Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product best pole saw After reading other reviews I had an issue with the pole saw disengaging like others said. I took it back and told them. They fixed it and it's been awesome since. Starts on first pI'll every time. Cuts great and performs awesome. With it being lighter in weight I'm able to use it all day with no fatigue. If you can afford to get it then make sure you get one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good so far This has been a great addition to my stihl tools. Fast cutting. I didn't know how well the smaller chain would work but I am very pleased how fast it cuts.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Design flaws I run a tree crew for a local remc and I use this tool all day every day. My main real issue is the telescopic part itself. After a few days of trimming saw dust builds up underneath the tightener where they have about 8 little tensioner pieces. Once these get dirty you will never be able to extend the saw until you clean it. So when your 45 ft in the air and you need those extra feet that the pole saw should provide you'll be struggling to extend this this with no success. Very disappointing.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst Stihl tool ever I am sorry that I ever bought this worthless piece of junk. The previous model was excellent, so this was beyond a disappointment. The plate is far too flimsy and gets pinched in the branches. The whole thing is backwards and unbalanced. I've always been a faithful Stihl customer, but this tool is a black mark on the good Stihl name. I will never buy another power pruner from Stihl.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Stay Away Purchased a few of them for our crews, inner drive shafts break every week, cheap parts used on new features , would like stihl to recall these asap
Date published: 2017-05-26
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Why change sides? I always want to use this pole saw upside down, it's awkward. It works don't get me wrong but it's not the comfort we we're all used to. I have seen my share of shaft wear and tear on the old models (101&131) and I'm guessing that Stihl switched the side the bars on so its not stripping the shaft as much. Stihl realized that the ms250 was too good of a saw to discontinue, and I wish they would do the same with the 101 and 131.Just bring them back for a year because I Know at least 5 tree services that would buy a handful each!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from The aluminum tube is weak Got this pruner 3 days ago and on day one the aluminum tube bent. Yes, it was our fault because a limb fell on it and smashed it. The aluminum tube is not robust enough to take much abuse and the daily grind of working, IMO. The limb was large and heavy, but my concern is this will happen to other users as well. I have owned Stihl saws and trimmers since I was a teen. Im 49 years old now.I used to Stihl saws being very tough and durable. Tree work can be demanding.
