Homeowners and tree care professionals now have another quiet, zero-exhaust emission, low vibration option for trimming out of reach branches. The HTA 86 Lithium-Ion battery pole pruner offers lightweight, balanced cutting thanks to its brushless, commercial-grade, high-torque electric motor. Part of the STIHL AP series, the HTA 86 offers long run times without gradual drop in performance. The HTA 86 Features the same lightweight toolless telescoping shaft found on the gas-powered HT 135 and extends to 12.8 feet for those tall tree-trimming tasks giving users the ability to reach up to 16’ high. Best of all, there’s no gasoline cost, restrictive power cords and it’s virtually maintenance free.
