From the Manufacturer
The Silky HAYATE 372-42 Telescoping Landscaping 20-Feet Pole Saw is a state-of-the-art, heavy-duty, aluminum telescoping pole saw - the pole saw of choice by professionals. Thick aluminum alloy extension poles are oval shaped, providing precise control over the direction of the blade (especially important for high cutting) thus reducing bending to the minimum. The base pole has a pole-end impact absorber and comfortable rubberized overgrip. The 16-21/2-inch curved blade utilizes proprietary Silky MIRAI-ME (Smooth Cutting) Technology - The Teeth of the Future! The precision-ground, razor-sharp, super-aggressive teeth with four cutting angles provide extremely fast cutting action. The taper-ground profile reduces drag and directs more usable energy to the cutting edge. The blade features replaceable lower sickle for small branches and undercutting bark. HAYATE is manufactured with high visibility colors and comes equipped with a new advanced design sheath with a built-in carrying handle. It is ideal for pruning large branches at higher position without ever climbing a ladder. This is the strongest and fastest telescoping pole saw available on the market today. Made in Japan. To allow effective use of HAYATE pole saws, two locking systems are incorporated to assure structural rigidity of the extended poles: 1) locking pins/buttons - the primary pole locking mechanism; and 2) friction clamps - the secondary pole locking mechanism. The two systems are designed to work together. This dual locking system allows 100% of the effort at the handle to be effectively transferred to the blade up to 20 feet away. Spring-loaded locking buttons allow multiple length adjustments and safety friction clamps hold the extensions firmly in place. Safety considerations require that the pole saw user must wear a hard hat and eye protection at all times. Manufacturer Warning: Do not use aluminum telescoping pole saws within 50' of electrical power lines or any other electrical hazard as shock may result. Incorrect use of the Silky pole saw may cause injury or death. Silky products manufactured for use in the United States are covered by a Limited Lifetime Warranty against defects in material and workmanship. Silky products manufactured for the Japanese market and sold into the United States by gray market sellers are made to a different specification and therefore are NOT covered by the manufacturer's Limited Lifetime Warranty.

My first impression after looking at the handle was the ovular design and wrap was crafted to look like a Samurai sword handle. After using it, I think I was the one who became the Samurai. A few cuts and I was easily able to learn the technique to quickly and efficiently saw through limbs. The blade made quick work of even some of the most stubborn Blackjack oaks that traditionally dull out the chain on my Stihl HT101. I took a post oak branch down that was 7” at around 20’ high in about 3 minutes. The pole easily extends and is very stable compared to anything else I’ve used of similar or even shorter length. I used the suckling cutter to quickly trim the branches that I used to have to get the ladder out for. The only downside is I can cut more than I can burn so I have to pace my enthusiasm as we have thousands of trees on our land, which fortunately not all need regular work.
Although I still need a chain saw to cut the wood when it’s down, I do think this is a much more versatile pole pruner than anything else on the market when making vertical cuts and probably just relegated my $600 Stihl to the garage for most of the year.
And then I did a bunch more branches from the ground. I hate how they say this thing is 20' long, but gives you a 25' reach, depending on your size. I was out there with just the tip of the butt in my fully extended arms, completely vertical at times, sawing by going from tiptoe to flat and back, giving me approximately a 28' reach, and more like 32' once I stood on a wooden structure.
I also did some branches that were sticking straight down just by angling from underneath.
All this went surprisingly smooth. Yes, it is easiest to go at a 30' angle from vertical, but I was comfortable the other ways as well. Some muscles were tired afterword...
It may seem extreme to buy this for one large tree, but it would have cost more to have a "professional" come out for the afternoon. And I am a man who appreciates perfection in tools and the ability to go trim some more on my own time, anytime I like.
BTW, Japan has so many amazing things that haven't made it over this way. I was always fascinated to find these treasures while I lived over there, and I'm continually impressed with their traditional woodwork and the fact that they often use manual saws even for fine woodworking and architecture. On this saw, I think even the pop-up buttons are more than meets the eye: I noticed they don't function as you would expect unless you unlatch all the latches, as per the instructions (which come in English).
Really fantastic tool.
This tool is, for the most part, extremely well made. Great design. Sharp blade. Sturdy while extended. Comfortable to hold. Just about perfect.
The clamping latches don't function properly and the little metal buttons that are supposed to lock the shaft in place jam and are not reliable!! The bottom yellow clamping latch on our saw is dysfunctional after just 2 jobs! This tool is virtually brand new, but the latch isn't holding the shaft in place. Because of this, the shaft dropped down, slamming the little metal button against the yellow clamp. This jammed the button in place and once we were able to unjam it, it would no longer do its job. We take good care of our equipment and this is not normal.
These issues led to an injury that could have been VERY serious! While on a ladder with this saw, one of my guys had the end of the shaft slide all the way out, releasing from the faulty yellow clamp and with a dysfunctional locking button failing to keep it in place. The extremely sharp saw blade was then swinging from a tree limb with a heavy shaft attached to it. This all fell down from the tree while my guy almost fell off his ladder. Guarding himself from the falling blade, he held up his hand and was sliced deeply around the thumb. Another inch and I'd be telling you about the reconstructive surgery he'd be having to repair the function of his thumb.
I would love to return this item for an improved model. Perhaps I received a lemon, though I have my doubts about the structural integrity of those little metal buttons in general. I am beyond my return date, so I am hoping the seller or manufacturer may be able to offer me some other solutions here. We need a good pole saw and this saw is the strongest and sharpest we've found, but I can't accept such dangerous flaws when my crew's safety is at risk.
