stihl ht131 pole saw

Found one for $400 at a pawn shop. Is it something you guys use very often? I think its a great price for the condition. I know what they go for new but I haven't needed one so far. Can you use it for anything other than trimming branches?

You wouldn't find one here for that price, cause it would be gone!

Good deal, I had one of those but keep it out of the rain because the bearings inside the shaft will rust up & cost mega bucks to get it fixed.

8-10" limbs check how it runs and then go buy it asap, or post the name of the shop so someone else can buy it.

Doesnt really sound like a great deal. I paid $60 more for a brand new one. But it is a nice tool to have. I dont like ladders.
