–It’s lightweight (NOT cheap-feeling)
–Easy to assemble
–Easy to use
–Easy to adjust
–There are nearly a dozen notes about chain direction, just in case someone is not familiar with how to install it. In fact, it even comes with the chain zip-tied in the proper orientation on the bar.
–Extension and retraction is fast and simple. A quick light turn of the locking collar is all that you need.
–The extension pole is rigid and at full-reach doesn’t wobble.
–The cord lock is a great feature. Use it because you will unplug it while using if you don’t
–Chain is sharp and it cuts well.
Note: Undercut branches to prevent binding and if the branch takes the saw with it, let it go and guide it down, don’t force it.
–It uses regular bar and chain oil, nothing special. Keep an eye on the oil level, it uses it pretty quickly, which is OK!
–Other reviews mentioned leaks of which I’ve had none and it hangs in the garage with the bar down, full of oil. Make sure the oil-cap string stays out of the threads, that could cause a problem.
–Chain adjustment is easy, same as a regular chainsaw. It will loosen a LOT after the first couple of cuts.
–The trigger lock takes a bit of getting used to and I’m not a fan of that setup, but it works
–It would be nice if there was a slot or something in the handle for the adjustment wrench
Overall I’m very happy with the saw. The only unknown is durability and longevity, but if it’s registered I think there is a 2 year warranty.
1. The adjustable length of the pole. The other one is fixed at 9 feet. There are a couple of reasons adjustability is a very nice feature. First, what others have pointed out – use the shorter length to cut up the limbs you’ve cut down. It’s much easier than standing back nine feet to do it. But, an equally important reason is that it can be adjusted easily while using the saw. I use it mainly for palm trees and oaks. When I’m on the ladder, I don’t always need or want the saw at its full length. There’s about ten pounds hanging on a 9 foot pole and it gets heavy quickly. And, sometimes I’m closer to what I want to cut. Twist the lock on the pole, collapse it a little, tighten the lock and start cutting again. It’s very nice.
2. A major reason I decided to change saws was that the one I have infuriated me with the chain constantly jumping the track. I tightened it and loosened it and tried everything I could to get the tension right. It didn’t matter – if the saw twisted a little while cutting the chain popped off. That meant removing the cover, adjusting the chain, replacing the cover and going back to work – five to ten minutes of cursing the whole time. I just finished trimmng several palm trees and an oak with this one and it did not jump once. Tensioning the chain is very simple and done with the cover on – just turn a screw.
3. The oiler on the other one seems to feed oil too fast – the motor always is oily and it runs down the pole. This one doesn’t and keeps a light coat of oil on the chain. The other one put too much oil on the chain with the result it jams because the saw dust gets oily and clogs the sprocket – that may be why it jumped the track.
4. It cuts faster – that may be simply because it’s a new chain so I can’t say it’s different in that respect from the other.
5. It feels sturdier. The pole definitely is stronger. There is absolutely no twisting or bending. The other one doesn’t really “bend” but it does flex. This one is very stiff.
So – I’m glad I have it and recommend it hightly.
When I first opened the box I felt like there is no way this is going to work any good. It is much smaller and lighter weight than what I was use to. But I was amazed how well it cut through the large branches. The thickest branch I cut was probably about 5″ in diameter and it went through it like butter
The only negative is that the chain did get jammed once and came off. It was tangled and I have to use a vice and hammer to get it straightened out again. When I put it back on, I made it tighter than the original time I assembled. I no longer had any problem even after 2 hours of using
