STIHL launches its most powerful battery pole pruners to date

TIHL has launched two new professional battery pole pruners, offering greater cordless performance than ever before. The two tools, forming part of the AP System, give professional landscapers and arborists lightweight operability and maximum power for unrivalled efficiency.

Both the HTA 150 and HTA 160 offer a high power output of 1.4 kW, the same as the petrol HT 135 pole pruner and 0.3kW higher than the HTA 135. Driven by a powerful and low maintenance EC motor, both the HTA 150 and HTA 160 offer elite performance with both models capable of cutting through large branches for efficiency in professional arboriculture and forestry applications.

While the HTA 160 boasts a rigid telescopic shaft with a maximum length of 405 cm, the same reach as professional petrol models, the HTA 150 offers a shorter, fixed length shaft best suited to thinning work in young stands.

Battery pole pruners offer numerous advantages compared to petrol models, such as a low noise and emission free work environment, low running costs and easier maintenance.

Thanks to the lightweight magnesium gearbox, both models are easy to manoeuvre into the desired position for precise cutting. The design of the sprocket cover is also optimised to promote efficient ejection of the wood shavings for faster working too.

Like many tools in the AP System, the HTA 150 and HTA 160 feature a metal mesh air filter, helping to cool the battery and motor during operation and further enhancing the lifetime of the product.

Compatible with the Smart Connector 2 A, both models allow users to gather insights from the tool, such as working time and working speed history. Not only this, but this intuitive feature also alerts the user when maintenance tasks are due on each individual tool to maximise productivity.
