Harvest is coming and I was looking for a pole pruner and the brushcutter isn't the best, too. So I went to Hermann, my JD dealer, and bought a new Stihl system.

The engine is the KM 130 R. The pole pruner (so called by Stihl) is a HT-KM. The scythe is a FS-KM and I can change the head w/ a AutoCad 25-2.

So let the work begin!

Looks like U R good to go. Is that a 2cycle or 4cycle power head? That looks like a squash plant in the background.

It's a 2cycle, that runs like a 4cycle. A new engine generation from Stihl. And yes, it's a pumpkin (Hokkaido) in the background - and a zucchini-plant.

Stihl is one of the best brands you can get. Good tools can make a hard job a lot easier.  :thumbs:

Today I had the pole pruner in use - it's only wonderful, when you can work with good tools!

 

edit: no, it's not only wonderful - it's a pleasure!
