Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent Product I bought the HT 103 to cut branches on 15 acre farm which has many low hanging limbs on the field edges that hit you in the face while running a bush-hog with the tractor. I'm very experienced with chainsaws and cut professionally for a period of time. This is my first season with the saw and thus far I am ecstatic with the performance. Being able to extend the reach and function has been superb.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not as good as the HT101 I was very happy with my HT101. The HT 103 in not a comparable saw. It is light weight but the saw attachment is very cheap. It is all plastic and will not stand the test of time. When you extend the pole the head vibrates for about 10 seconds before it smooths out. The hook that is used for pulling branches is virtually useless. The chain is very small and cannot power through larger limbs(over 4 inches). I purchased a larger bar and chain but am waiting on the new sprocket. I hope this upgrade will allow it to cut larger branches. All of my blowers, trimmers and chainsaws are Stihl however unless they improve this saw I would look elsewhere before buying another.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Minor issue. Still love it! Bought the 103 at 9 o’clock this morning, the dealer started it and made it work ready before I went out the door. After the 3 rd cut at full extension, the chain stopped spinning and wasn’t bound up. I retracted it all the way and it worked again. After a few more tries at full extension, I called the dealer and he had me bring it back to check it. Turns out, the motor was not fully seated into the shaft. 10 minutes later, out the door and back to cutting! Dealer said it’s a semi-common issue.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Factory flaw I am sure that Stihl is a quality product. However, I purchased the HT 103 on March 5th. It started great and worked great......until I extended the pole. The saw would not function at any length except when fully contracted. I took it back to Rural King and exchanged it. Had the same problem. The manager was very helpful and offered to bump me up to the 133 model at no cost. We fired it up at the store, worked fine retracted, would not work at any extended position.I got my money back while wasting a day of my weekend. Hard to come by beautiful days this time of year. Very disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product is awsome doing plum trees Only used it three time and I love it. Starts easy and is ready to use when I need it. The price is a little high for what I needed, but I will never need any more to get the job done. Mostly using it on plum trees that are tall and this does the job with it's extended reach. Very easy to use and light weight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to start and use. Nothing but a Stihl for me. Used my new ht 103 pole saw as soon as I got home from the dealer. Plenty of power and starts every time. Made fast work of the low hanging limbs around my property.
