HT 103 is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Broken before first use. There is a weak link in the drive mechanism which makes the tool useless. A plastic ring with a short lever tab designed to connect with the short aluminum tube at the motor head end that forces the square end of the drive cable to remain inside the output shaft of the gas motor when assembled. The tiny flexible tab on the plastic ring was broken from the factory so I could not operate the saw. I am waiting to hear what the Stihl rep says to my dealer. Since the plastic part does not look relaceable within the factory assembled telescoping shaft assembly, I can only see very expensive repair costs ahead after the warranty expires. My first Stihl chainsaw is an 028 from the early '70's and is still in use. My newer 280 is now 15 plus years old and is terrific. Two leaf blowers and a power trimmer and I am all in for Stihl products. This new one has me really disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great product! I needed a saw that would eliminate the need of a ladder and a saw! At the age of 73, I needed a change! This works perfectly. Boots on the ground, and no more tumbles while pruning my crape myrtles!
