More Stihl Polesaw Confusion

I want to replace the head of my Kombi Polesaw attachment.  I have now discovered that there are two versions.

This is shown by some dealers.

9880941058?profile=RESIZE_400x

This by other dealers. Clearly it's a more solid head. Does anyone know what the other differences are ?

  • I think you'll find the top one is the latest model which I believe is lighter than the old bottom one.  I've had one of the old models for years and never had a problem. 

  • I thought that the top one is for the Kombi & the second for the telescopic pole saw. I agree the second one is similar to the old design that's very strong. 

  • What's up with your old one? 

    • It's 25 years old :) Unfortunately the quality & life expectancy is going down, even with Stihl. 

      • German engineering rubbish!

        • I have a Stihl backpack blower that's even older. But the new Stihl products won't last that long. The "old" polesaw isn't heavy. I would rather buy something built for strength rather than weight. Plus the 3/4 chain means only needing one sharpener :) 

          • Makes me wonder what's better for the environment a machine that last 20yrs, that doesn't have modern emission standards or a machine that lasts 3yrs.

  • The new one uses a 1/4 chain. 

    Luckily I have found a dealer with the old one in stock which uses a 3/8

    The other difference is that the bar is on the other side on the top/new design, so good if you're left handed, bad if you are right handed.

    • Yes I noticed that.  I am sticking to the old one
