Powerful professional pole pruner with telescopic shaft

The STIHL HT 135 pole pruner features a low emission, high torque 4-MIX engine with a manual fuel pump and automatic decompression to ensure easy starting. The new lightweight gearbox design provides high-speed precision while pruning, makes handling easier when reaching for high branches, and with a new squared-shaft design, the telescoping shaft has increased rigidity, providing control and precision while reducing user fatigue. The outside guide bar and saw chain mounting of the HT 135 provides users with better flush-cutting abilities. Rounded out by great features such as the semi-automatic choke lever, one-touch stop and no-slip grip design the HT 135 is built to meet the demands of the most discerning professionals. With a total length of of 270 cm – 390 cm it allows users tocut branches up to a height of 5m.

  • Lightweight, robust magnesium gearbox: The lightweight magnesium construction material combines the robustness professionals need with lightweight construction. The lightweight head of the pole pruner ensures reduced strain during longer periods of use.
  • Robust cast branch hook: The branch hook helps with positioning as you cut. After making the cut, cuttings can be removed easily using the robust branch hook.
  • STIHL professional chain tensioning system: Lateral chain tensioning prevents hands from coming into contact with the sharp chain and the tips of the claw stop. It also ensures safe and easy chain tensioning. The integrated direction guide on the sprocket cover makes it easier to monitor your direction when positioning and sawing. A captive nut means no risk that the nut will be lost. Lateral chip ejection also reduces the risk of clogging.
  • Professional telescopic shaft: The square tube on the professional telescopic shaft makes the shaft very rigid when extended, ensuring precise positioning and cutting. Thanks to the practical pull-out function and rotatable locknut, the tool can also be easily used to work very high up. The shaft length can be adjusted without using any tools.
  • Ergonomic quick adjustment: The length of the HTA can easily be adjusted between 285 and 405 cm using the ergonomic quick adjustment feature. The quick adjustment feature means you only need a quarter-turn to release the mechanism and change the length, then it can be retightened.
  • STIHL 4-MIX engine: You can always rely on STIHL to keep setting new benchmarks this time with 4-stroke mixed lubrication technology. The STIHL 4-MIX engine, which runs on a fuel-oil mix just like a 2-stroke, offers the benefits without the compromises of 4-stroke power. STIHL 4-MIX engine technology provides fast acceleration, more power, added torque, lower noise, reduced emissions and increased fuel efficiency to complete jobs quickly, quietly and more easily.
  • Anti-vibration system: Intense vibration at the handles of power tools can lead to long-term effects on blood vessels in the hands and arms. STIHL has therefore developed an effective anti-vibration system whereby the oscillations from the machine’s engine are dampened which significantly reduces vibrations at the handles.
  • Multi-function handle: All engine control functions are integrated into the multi-function handle. The power tool is easy and safe to use – the operator’s hand remains on the handle at all times.
