The whole thing is fairly heavy and can be a bit awkward at first, but not too bad. I found it easiest to tuck the pole under my right arm a bit and use my elbow for leverage and it took a good amount of weight off. When the pole is fully extended, it does get a little wobble, but nothing that makes you feel out of control. I found it best to try to cut high limbs, when the pole was fully extended and harder to control, by trying to have another branch below where I was doing the cut. By having another branch below the cut, the pole only had to drop a short distance and was caught by the lower branch, instead of crashing to the ground and/or hurting my wrist or arm in the process.
I really do like this pruner and it can be addictive using it:-) Now I want to prune EVERYTHING I can reach with it. It is much cheaper than paying a tree trimmer and my tree now looks so much happier and clean.
The blade can easily bind and then bend the pole out of shape when extended, especially at full length. When the pole bends out of shape you cannot reduce it's length by inserting it back in. The key is to use it with that in mind so as to avoid this issue which will likely happen anyway. The saw cuts really really well though.
Fiskars however has sent me a replacement pole under warranty so I am happy about that. They have proven to be a great company as far as products and especially customer support.
This thing slices thru oak relatively like butter compared to my corona hand held saw.
it is easier with only one extension out than two. it is more work moving the thing around up high than slicing thru a 6-8in diameter piece of oak in the air.
the grip, t-handle on the rope is easy to adjust as it clamps the rope so it doesn't slide thru when u pull.
the first cut thru oak was the easiest, fully crisply clean blade. the others were still surprisingly easy tho. Not bad getting in between many branches. i've only cut 3 branches off and to yard waste pickup size and it surely already paid for itself once or twice. I no longer think there was any need for anything powered. I would have run into issues at branch intersections where too many branches have low crotch angles.
It would be nice as one person mentioned for there to be a spare blade reserved from the hand saw so wouldn't have to switch back and forth for cutting down a 35' long branch then sectioning it. I wouldn't have chosen to pay more for that when i bought this on a thanksgiving lightning deal, but i sure would now. It is easy and no tool needed (wingnuts and carriage bolts) to switch the blade back and forth.
