i am looking into getting a new(er) pole pruner and i like the stihl, shindaiwa(which i currently run all shin stuff) and the husky. they each have their advantages but my main concern is price it seems. for some reason the shindaiwa p230 and husky are $499 and $479 while the HT70 stihl is $389. in my eyes, these units are all in the same "market" and are quite comparable. why is it then, that the stihl is some $100 less? someone shed some light on this for me?
