Please Note: Shell only, battery and charger must be bought separately.

Stihl have gone to extreme lengths to bring you a whole range of cordless battery powered garden machinery to bring even the most traditional gardener bang up to date with 21st century technologies. The 36v lithium-ion battery not only offers outstanding power but has been intelligently designed to give efficiency and convenience to the Stihl cordless range. This HTA 85 cordless pole pruner offers you a quieter, cleaner experience with excellent cutting capabilities. Enjoy ultimate freedom from extension cables and petrol fumes - simply charge up the 36v battery and you're ready to go! Much easier to start than a petrol engine, this brush less electric powered motor is maintenance free and has been designed to offer ultimate energy efficiency, and a longer life expectancy.

The telescopic quick release makes for convenient switching between lengths as you work ensuring as little interruptions as possible, saving you time and effort. The telescopic shaft can be extended between a very generous length of 270cm and 390cm, which means even those harder to reach areas of up to 500cm from the ground will be accessible to you with this HTA 85. For added safety the chain tensioner is located on the side to ensure there is no contact with the chain when you are adjusting it. Its low weight of 4.5kg and its soft grip handles make this a very comfortable pole pruner to work with.

The battery gives you up to 230 minutes running time, and once charged will not self-discharge whilst not in use. A clever LED display lets you know if you are running low on charge as you work. You can use this 36v battery in other products in the Stihl cordless range, giving you extra value for money. The battery itself is securely weather proofed which means you can keep working even during the good old British summer time!
