    3 Have your STIHL dealer show you how 
    to operate your power tool. Observe all 
    applicable local safety regulations, 
    standards and ordinances.
    Do not lend or rent your power tool 
    without the instruction manual. Be sure 
    that anyone using it understands the 
    information contained in this manual.
    The use of this machine may be 
    hazardous. The pole pruner chain has 
    many sharp cutters. If the cutters contact 
    your flesh, they will cut you, even if the 
    chain is not moving.
    Do not cut any material other than wood 
    or wooden objects. Use your pole pruner 
    for limbing only.
    Do not use it for other purposes, since 
    misuse may result in personal injury or 
    property damage, including damage to 
    the machine.
    Minors should never be allowed to use 
    this power tool. Bystanders, especially 
    children, and animals should not be 
    allowed in the area where it is in use.
    To reduce the risk of injury to bystanders 
    and damage to property, never let your 
    power tool run unattended. When it is 
    not in use (e. g. during a work break), 
    shut it off and make sure that 
    unauthorized persons do not use it.
    Most of these safety precautions and 
    warnings apply to the use of all STIHL 
    pole pruners. Different models may have 
    different parts and controls. See the 
    appropriate section of your instruction 
    manual for a description of the controls 
    and the function of the parts of your 
    Safe use of a pole pruner involves
    1.the operator
    2.the power tool
    3.the use of the power tool.
    Physical Condition
    You must be in good physical condition 
    and mental health and not under the 
    influence of any substance (drugs, 
    alcohol, etc.) which might impair vision, 
    dexterity or judgment. Do not operate 
    this machine when you are fatigued.
    Be alert – if you get tired, take a break. 
    Tiredness may result in loss of control. 
    Working with any power tool can be 
    strenuous. If you have any condition that 
    might be aggravated by strenuous work, 
    check with your doctor before operating 
    this machine.
    Prolonged use of a power tool (or other 
    machines) exposing the operator to 
    vibrations may produce whitefinger 
    disease (Raynaud's phenomenon) or 
    carpal tunnel syndrome.
    These conditions reduce the hand's 
    ability to feel and regulate temperature, 
    produce numbness and burning 
    sensations and may cause nerve and 
    circulation damage and tissue necrosis.
    All factors which contribute to 
    whitefinger disease are not known, but 
    cold weather, smoking and diseases or 
    physical conditions that affect blood 
    vessels and blood transport, as well as 
    high vibration levels and long periods of 
    Safety Precautions and 
    Working Techniques
    Because a pole pruner is 
    a high-speed, fast-cut-
    ting power tool with a 
    very long reach, special 
    safety precautions must 
    be observed to reduce 
    the risk of personal injury.
    It is important that you 
    read, fully understand 
    and observe the following 
    safety precautions and 
    warnings. Read the 
    instruction manual and 
    the safety precautions 
    periodically. Careless or 
    improper use may cause 
    serious or fatal injury. 
    							HT 100, HT 101, HT 130, HT 131
    4 exposure to vibration are mentioned as 
    factors in the development of whitefinger 
    disease. In order to reduce the risk of 
    whitefinger disease and carpal tunnel 
    syndrome, please note the following:
    –Most STIHL power tools are 
    available with an anti-vibration 
    ("AV") system designed to reduce 
    the transmission of vibrations 
    created by the machine to the 
    operator's hands. An AV system is 
    recommended for those persons 
    using power tools on a regular or 
    sustained basis.
    –Wear gloves and keep your hands 
    –Keep the AV system well 
    maintained. A power tool with loose 
    components or with damaged or 
    worn AV elements will tend to have 
    higher vibration levels.
    –Maintain a firm grip at all times, but 
    do not squeeze the handles with 
    constant, excessive pressure. Take 
    frequent breaks.
    All the above-mentioned precautions do 
    not guarantee that you will not sustain 
    whitefinger disease or carpal tunnel 
    syndrome. Therefore, continual and 
    regular users should closely monitor the 
    condition of their hands and fingers. If 
    any of the above symptoms appear, 
    seek medical advice immediately.
    The ignition system of the STIHL unit 
    produces an electromagnetic field of a 
    very low intensity. This field may 
    interfere with some pacemakers. To 
    reduce the risk of serious or fatal injury, 
    persons with a pacemaker should consult their physician and the 
    pacemaker manufacturer before 
    operating this tool.
    Proper Clothing
    To reduce the risk of injury, the operator 
    should wear proper protective apparel.
    WARNINGBe particularly alert and cautious when 
    wearing hearing protection because 
    your ability to hear warnings (shouts, 
    alarms, etc.) is restricted.
    Avoid loose-fitting jackets, scarfs, 
    neckties, jewelry, flared or cuffed pants, 
    unconfined long hair or anything that 
    could become caught on branches, 
    brush or the moving parts of the unit. 
    Secure hair so it is above shoulder level.
    For illustrations and definitions of the 
    power tool parts see the chapter on 
    "Main Parts". To reduce the risk of 
    injury to your eyes never 
    operate your power tool 
    unless wearing goggles 
    or properly fitted protec-
    tive glasses with 
    adequate top and side 
    protection complying with 
    ANSI Z 87.1 "+" (or your 
    applicable national stand-
    ard). To reduce the risk of 
    injury to your face STIHL 
    recommends that you 
    also wear a face shield or 
    face screen over your 
    goggles or protective 
    Wear an approved safety 
    hard hat to reduce the 
    risk of injury to your head.
    Power tool noise may 
    damage your hearing. 
    Wear sound barriers (ear 
    plugs or ear mufflers) to 
    protect your hearing. 
    Continual and regular 
    users should have their 
    hearing checked 
    Always wear heavy duty 
    work gloves (e.g. made of 
    leather or other wear 
    resistant material) when 
    handling the machine 
    and the cutting tool. 
    Heavy-duty, nonslip 
    gloves improve your grip 
    and help to protect your 
    Clothing must be sturdy 
    and snug-fitting, but allow 
    complete freedom of 
    movement. Wear long 
    pants made of heavy 
    material to help protect 
    your legs. Do not wear 
    shorts, sandals or go 
    Good footing is very 
    important. Wear sturdy 
    boots with nonslip soles. 
    Steel-toed safety boots 
    with cut retardant inserts 
    are recommended. 
    							HT 100, HT 101, HT 130, HT 131
    Never modify this power tool in any way. 
    Only attachments supplied by STIHL or 
    expressly approved by STIHL for use 
    with the specific STIHL model are 
    authorized. Although certain 
    unauthorized attachments are useable 
    with STIHL power tools, their use may, 
    in fact, be extremely dangerous.
    If this tool is subjected to unusually high 
    loads for which it was not designed (e. g. 
    heavy impact or a fall), always check 
    that it is in good condition before 
    continuing work. Check in particular that 
    the fuel system is tight (no leaks) and 
    that the controls and safety devices are 
    working properly. Do not continue 
    operating this machine if it is damaged. 
    In case of doubt, have it checked by your 
    STIHL servicing dealer.
    Transporting the Power Tool
    This power tool should be carried only in 
    a horizontal position. Grip the shaft in a 
    manner that the machine is balanced 
    horizontally. Keep the hot muffler away 
    from your body and the cutting 
    attachment behind you. Accidental acceleration of the engine can cause the 
    chain to rotate and cause serious 
    Always switch off the engine and fit the 
    scabbard over the cutting attachment 
    before transporting the power tool over 
    long distances. When transporting it in a 
    vehicle, properly secure it to prevent 
    turnover, fuel spillage and damage to 
    the unit.
    Your STIHL power tool uses an oil- 
    gasoline mixture for fuel (see the 
    chapter on "Fuel" of your instruction 
    WARNINGFueling Instructions
    To reduce the risk of serious injury from 
    burns, never attempt to refuel the unit 
    until it has been completely removed 
    from the operator.
    Fuel your power tool in well-ventilated 
    areas, outdoors. Always shut off the 
    engine and allow it to cool before 
    refueling. Gasoline vapor pressure may 
    build up inside the fuel tank depending 
    on the fuel used, the weather conditions 
    and the tank venting system.
    In order to reduce the risk of burns and 
    other personal injury from escaping gas 
    vapor and fumes, remove the fuel filler 
    cap on your power tool carefully so as to 
    allow any pressure build-up in the tank 
    t o  r e l e a s e  s l o w l y .  N e v e r  r e m o v e  t h e  f u e l

    Select bare ground for fueling and move 
    at least 10 feet (3 m) from the fueling 
    spot before starting the engine. Wipe off 
    any spilled fuel before starting your

    ous burn injury or 
    property damage. Use 
    extreme caution when 
    handling gasoline or fuel 
    mix. Do not smoke or 
    bring any fire or flame 
    near the fuel or the power 
    tool. Note that combus-
    tible fuel vapor may 
    escape from the fuel 
    							HT 100, HT 101, HT 130, HT 131
    In order to reduce the risk of fuel spillage 
    and fire from an improperly tightened 
    fuel cap, correctly position and tighten 
    the fuel cap in the fuel tank opening.
    Different models may be equipped with 
    different fuel caps.
    Toolless cap with grip
    To do this with this STIHL cap, raise the 
    grip on the top of the cap until it is upright 
    at a 90° angle. Insert the cap in the fuel 
    tank opening with the raised positioning 
    marks on the grip of the cap and on the 
    fuel tank opening lining up. Using the 
    grip, press the cap down firmly while 
    turning it clockwise as far as it will go 
    (approx. 1/4 turn).Misaligned, damaged or broken cap
    NIf the cap does not drop fully into the 
    opening when the positioning marks 
    line up and/or if the cap does not 
    tighten properly when twisted, the 
    base of the cap may be prematurely 
    rotated (in relation to the top) to the 
    closed position. Such misalignment 
    can result from handling, cleaning 
    or an improper attempt at 
    tightening.NTo return the cap to the open 
    position for installation, turn the cap 
    (with the grip up) until it drops fully 
    into the tank opening. Next, twist the 
    cap counterclockwise as far as it will 
    go (approx. 1/4 turn) – this will twist 
    the base of the cap into the correct 
    position. Then, twist the cap 
    clockwise, closing it normally.
    NIf your cap still does not tighten 
    properly, it may be damaged or 
    broken; immediately stop use of the 
    unit and take it to your authorized 
    STIHL dealer for repair.
    Screw Cap
    See also the "Fueling" chapter in your 
    Instruction Manual for additional 
    information. Check for fuel leakage 
    while refueling and during 
    operation. If fuel leakage 
    is found, do not start or 
    run the engine until the 
    leak is fixed and any 
    spilled fuel has been 
    wiped away. Take care 
    not to get fuel on your 
    clothing. If this happens,

    7 Before Starting
    Take off the chain guard (scabbard) and 
    inspect the pole pruner for proper 
    condition and operation. (See the 
    maintenance chart near the end of the 
    instruction manual.)
    Always check your power tool for proper 
    condition and operation before starting, 
    particularly the throttle trigger, throttle 
    trigger lockout, stop switch and cutting 
    attachment. The throttle trigger must 
    move freely and always spring back to 
    the idle position. Never attempt to 
    modify the controls or safety devices.
    Check fuel system for leaks, especially 
    the visible parts, e.g., filler cap, hose 
    connections, manual fuel pump (only for 
    power tools equipped with a manual fuel 
    pump). Do not start the engine if there 
    are leaks or damage – risk of fire! Have 
    the machine repaired by a servicing 
    dealer before using it.
    Never operate your power tool if it is 
    damaged, improperly adjusted or 
    maintained, or not completely or 
    securely assembled.
    Check that the spark plug boot is 
    securely mounted on the spark plug – a 
    loose boot may cause arcing that could 
    ignite combustible fumes and cause a 
    fire.Keep the handles clean and dry at all 
    times; it is particularly important to keep 
    them free of moisture, pitch, oil, fuel mix, 
    grease or resin in order for you to 
    maintain a firm grip and properly control 
    your power tool.
    For proper assembly of the bar and 
    chain follow the procedure described in 
    the chapter "Mounting the Bar and 
    Chain" of your instruction manual.
    STIHL Oilomatic chain, guide bar and 
    sprocket must match each other in 
    gauge and pitch.
    Proper chain tension is extremely 
    important. In order to avoid improper 
    setting, the tensioning procedure must 
    be followed as described in your 
    manual. Always make sure the hex 
    nut(s) for the sprocket cover is (are) 
    tightened securely after tensioning the 
    chain. Check chain tension once more 
    after having tightened the nut(s). Never 
    start the pole pruner with the sprocket 
    cover loose.
    Adjust carrying harness and hand grip to 
    suit your size before starting work.
    To reduce the risk of fire and burn 
    injuries, start the engine at least 10 feet 
    (3 m) from the fueling spot, outdoors 
    Start and operate your pole pruner 
    without assistance.
    For specific starting instructions, see the 
    appropriate section of your manual. 
    Proper starting methods reduce the risk 
    of injury.Place the pole pruner on firm ground or 
    other solid surface in an open area or, in 
    the alternative, as shown in the above 
    picture. Maintain good balance and 
    secure footing.WARNING
    To reduce the risk of injury from loss of 
    control, do not attempt to "drop start" 
    your power tool.
    To reduce the risk of injury from loss of 
    control be absolutely sure that the guide 
    bar and chain are clear of you and all 
    other obstructions and objects, including 
    the ground, because when the engine 
    starts at starting-throttle, engine speed 
    will be fast enough for the clutch to 
    engage the sprocket and turn the chain.
    Once the engine has started, 
    immediately blip the throttle trigger, 
    which should release the starting throttle 
    and allow the engine to slow down to 
    With the engine running only at idle, 
    attach the power tool to the spring hook 
    of your harness (see appropriate 
    chapter of this manual).

    When you pull the starter grip, do not 
    wrap the starter rope around your hand. 
    Do not let the grip snap back, but guide 
    the starter rope to rewind it properly. 
    Failure to follow this procedure may 
    result in injury to your hand or fingers 
    and may damage the starter 
    Important Adjustments
    To reduce the risk of personal injury 
    from loss of control or contact with the 
    running cutting tool, do not use your unit 
    with incorrect idle adjustment. At correct 
    idle speed, the saw chain should not 
    move. For directions on how to adjust 
    idle speed, see the appropriate section 
    of your instruction manual.
    If you cannot set the correct idle speed, 
    have your STIHL dealer check your 
    power tool and make proper 
    adjustments and repairs.
    Proper chain tension is very important at 
    all times. Check it at regular intervals 
    (whenever the pole pruner is shut off). If 
    the chain becomes loose while cutting, 
    switch off the engine and then tighten. 
    Never try to tighten the chain while the 
    engine is running.
    During Operation
    Holding and Controlling the Power Tool
    Always hold the unit firmly with both 
    hands on the handles while you are 
    working. Wrap your fingers and thumbs 
    around the handles.Place your left hand on the shaft and 
    your right hand on rear grip and throttle 
    trigger. Left-handers should follow these 
    instructions, too. Keep your hands in this 
    position to have your pole pruner under 
    control at all times.
    Never attempt to operate your power 
    tool with one hand. Loss of control of the 
    power tool resulting in serious or fatal 
    injury may result.
    In order to properly control your pole 
    pruner, always maintain good balance 
    and a firm foothold. Never work on a 
    ladder, in a tree or on any other insecure 
    support. Never hold the machine above 
    shoulder height. Do not overreach. 
    When working at a height above 15 feet 
    (4.5 m) use a lift bucket. For pole pruner with adjustable shaft, expand the shaft 
    only as far as necessary for the intended 
    Special care must be taken in slippery 
    conditions (wet ground, snow) and in 
    difficult, overgrown terrain. Watch for 
    hidden obstacles such as tree stumps, 
    roots, rocks, holes and ditches to avoid 
    stumbling. For better footing, clear away 
    fallen branches, scrub and cuttings. Be 
    extremely cautious when working on 
    slopes or uneven ground.
    Take extreme care in wet and freezing 
    weather (rain, snow, ice). Put off the 
    work when the weather is windy, stormy 
    or rainfall is heavy.
