HT 133 is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 38.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Saw head had broke once aleady, bar is cheap, head packs full of shavings immediately I bought this saw thinking it was going to be like previous Stihl pole pruners I have used in past. Bar is cheap and flimsy always getting pinched. Plastic head snapped completely on bottom. The tube becomes almost impossible to slide after using it for the day. It’ does start 1st pull and runs great has good power. The head fills up with shavings and if not cleaned couple times throughout day becomes rock hard. I shelled out lot of money in hopes would have the “ ultimate pole pruner” . I lost money on 2 neighbor jobs when head broke part was back ordered month or more. After numerous trips to dealer finally replaced it off new saw they had in box. If not I may still be waiting today. I use saw for personal use but couple neighbors asked to cut bottom oak branches. I have saw for sale in hopes to sell. What happened stihl?

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Cheap Poor Quality saw head on this expensive pole saw I purchased this saw in august of 2017 and with less than a tank of gas thru it the cheap plastic saw head has broke and was leaking oil all over the place and about to fall off of the pole. The saw bar is flimsy and easily pinched also the small chain will not stay seated properly on the bar no matter how tight or loose or perfect the tenision is set. The chain and cover does not have any ability to let the sawdust out and it seems to derail the small kerf chain. I believe the saw also has some issues with hitting the rev limiter it sounds like it cuts out really early before it hits the power band.Once the saw gets heated up I noticed every time I raised the saw vertically it would die and I would have to put it back on the ground and start it what a pain. .

Rated 2 out of 5 by from First impression not good, but receptive to change if we can get it to work. I bought the HT-133 about 6-8 weeks ago (Summer) and it sat horizontally in the garage until today (November 4). The motor fired up after only a couple pulls, as advertised, but the chain does not engage when I pull the trigger. Tried shutting down and restarting a few times, but still no chain action. Kudos to the engine for starting up easy and running great.I'll be taking it back to the place I purchased it to determine what is wrong, or what I am doing wrong.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bad head unit I own a tree service. I have an older version of this product (could not select the actual product I have). Regardless, the older versions head unit was way better built and a lot more durable. I ordered a replacement head after a good year and a half of daily use and they sent me the new updated head. This thing is terrible. First they switched the side the blade is on. Why? It just doesn't make sense. Second, metal was replaced with cheap hard plastic. I am not happy with this product. Please update the older version and get rid of this.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does not touch the previous model On this product the adjuster for the telescoping shaft constantly gets clogged with saw dust, then the whole thing needs disassembled. The chain is to small and falls out of the bar even with proper chain tension. And the gearbox is a step backwards as well. The ht131 was a superior product, this is not a good product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pole Saws done right. I replaced my 22 year old HT75 with this 133. (the old one was on the side of my 4x4 when I hit a tree. It never did fail me.) The new one covered all my wishes over the old one . More power and it is a cutting machine. AND IT IS A STIHL.
