STIHL has announced that they have upgraded their petrol pole pruner range with the introduction of the new HT 105 and HT 135, providing professional users with greater durability and efficiency, helping to tackle tree maintenance and arborist work with greater ease.
Designed with de-limbing tree branches, removing dead wood and general maintenance in mind, the new HT 105 and 135 long reach pole pruners replace the HT 103, 131 and HT 133 models, and feature a series of upgrades to improve the user experience.
The new models feature a robust square telescopic drive tube with a simple length adjustment mechanism, allowing users to adjust the pole length from 270-390cm quickly and easily. In addition, both the HT 105 and 135 feature a light-weight magnesium gearbox and a rigid branch hook that is a part of the magnesium housing, offering improved usability and product longevity.
Both models utilise a powerful, high torque 4-MIX engine, which offers excellent power-to-weight ratio and also delivers a power output of 1.05kW (HT 105) and 1.4kW (HT 135) respectively.
Other features include lateral shaving ejection technology to prevent clogging and user downtime, a gearbox which boasts a marker line for a more accurate operation, as well as a foot stand to protect the engine housing from ground contact. Both models are compatible with the STIHL RTS harness for further comfort.
