Top Customer Reviews
I also want to make an observation based on other pole saw reviews I've read. I've read complaints about blades binding and how dangerous falling branches are, leading me to suspect that people were sawing on branches directly above them. That's not how you should use a pole saw; you should extend it so that you're standing off to the side and cut on the top of branches rather than their side. This technique results in the weight of the branch opening your cut rather than pinching the blade, and when the branch falls you aren't underneath it.
My pruner came today and the first thing I did was check the pole extension and durability. Sure enough the extension part of the pole was easily moved even when the lever was in the "lock" position. Since this was the reason for one of the bad reviews I inspected the mechanism to see if anything could be done. With a simple adjustment to the bolt secured by the nylon locking nut I was able to adjust the lock to the point where I could no longer move the extension when it was in the "lock" position (about 1 full rotation of the bolt on the locking nut).
Next was the saw blade. There were no instructions on how to tighten the blade so I put the pin in the first hole and secured the blade. It was very difficult to saw with the blade attached this way. Again after inspection the blade could be tightened on a second hole which made the blade straighter on the pole. After this adjustment I was easily able to cut through a 3-4 inch tree branch with not much effort.
The pruner blade easily was able to cut a branch that filled the entire opening of the metal hook that holds the branch. The rope did stretch a little but not much more than would be expected for a nylon rope.
Bottom line is this tool will do exactly what is expected of it with a few minor adjustments. It is well worth the money and performs its job very well.Read more ›
After using the saw for about 2 hours (in 100 degree Dallas weather, not the best idea) I can say that it works as advertised provided that one uses it correctly.
First, the pruners work better than I thought they would. They cut smaller branches easily and can cut through anything that fits inside of the cutting hook. If it won't fit inside the hook, then it needs to be cut with the saw.
The saw works well, though it is tedious to use. It's slow going but it gets the job done. The key to using it is to put pressure on the blade only on the "pull" stroke as the blade doesn't cut on the "push" stroke. Also, make long strokes that use the entire blade. Changing angles during the cut seems to make it go faster as well. Have patience, it gets somewhat monotonous. A branch with a 4" diameter took about 8 minutes to cut through.
A word about safety: first, don't stand under a branch that you are cutting (common sense right?). Second, use the pruners to trim down large branches so that when you saw through the branch near the trunk, there's less mass falling down. Third, when using the saw to take down a branch, make two cuts, the first about a foot away from the trunk. This allows the branch to fall without tearing bark off the tree trunk. Make the second cut close to the trunk for a clean look.
If I had more pruning to do I'd probably invest in a light chainsaw, but for some basic work here and there, this saw gets the job done.
