HT 131

Extremely powerful pole pruner with telescope shaft

The HT 131 pole pruner is powered by the STIHL 4-MIX engine providing more power than the HT 101, while meeting low emissions requirements. Its extendable shaft can adjust from 8’ 8’’ to 12’ 8’’ and can reach branches up to 16’ off the ground. It is equipped with an automatic bar and chain oiler, plus a side-access chain tensioner for easier maintenance. An optional comfort harness (sold separately) provides uniform load distribution over the shoulders for maximum comfort, making this unit a great tool for landscapers, gardeners and grounds maintenance crews. 

Standard features

STIHL 4-MIX® Motor 

STIHL 4-MIX® Motor

You can always rely on STIHL to keep setting new benchmarks this time with 4-stroke mixed lubrication technology. The STIHL 4-MIX engine, which runs on a fuel-oil mix just like a 2-stroke, offers the benefits without the compromises of 4-stroke power. STIHL 4-MIX engine technology provides fast acceleration, more power, added torque, lower noise, reduced emissions and increased fuel efficiency to complete jobs quickly, quietly and more easily.

Anti-vibration system 

Anti-vibration system

Intense vibration at the handles of power tools can lead to long-term effects on blood vessels in the hands and arms. STIHL has therefore developed an effective anti-vibration system whereby the oscillations from the machine's engine are dampened which significantly reduces vibrations at the handles.

Multi-function control handle 

Multi-function control handle

This houses all the engine controls. Easy, comfortable thumb-operated control means the operator's hand never leaves the handle.

Telescopic pole 

Telescopic pole

With the practical telescope shaft that can be fixed from 2.70m to 3.90m, you can easily reach branches up to a height of 5m.

Shoulder strap / carrying system 

Shoulder strap / carrying system

Using a STIHL shoulder strap or carrying harness with soft padding makes work more comfortable, particularly during lengthy jobs.

Decompression system 

Decompression system

The decompression system allows some of the compression pressure in the cylinder to escape, so less force on the starter rope is needed.

Manual fuel pump (purger) 

Manual fuel pump (purger)

A small fuel pump delivers fuel to the carburettor at the touch of a button. This reduces the number of starting pulls required following extended breaks in operations.
