Stihl has introduced two new models to its petrol pole pruner range; the HT 105 and the HT 135. They are designed to offer professional users greater durability and efficiency, helping to tackle tree maintenance and arborist work.
They replace the previous generation HT 103, HT 131 and HT 133 models, fitted with a series of upgrades for work de-limbing tree branches, removing deadwood and general maintenance.
Both models feature a robust square telescopic drive tube with simple length adjustment, allowing users to lengthen the unit from 270cm up to 390cm. In addition, they also have a lightweight magnesium gearbox and a rigid branch hook that is part of the magnesium housing to offer improved usability and product longevity.
Power comes from a high-torque 4-MIX engine which delivers outputs of 1.05kW and 1.4kW respectively. Other features include lateral shaving ejection technology to prevent clogging and user downtime, a gearbox that boasts a marker line for more accurate operation and a foot stand to protect the engine housing from contact with the ground.
Both models are also compatible with the Stihl RTS harness for increased safety and comfort.
