Chain Saws Direct Recommended

This Pole Saw is our Best pick due to the fact that it can reach to an astounding 13 feet which will get to just about every limb on that overgrown tree or shrub.

The unit will also adjust to any length in-between 109 & 156 inches so you can find the right length for the job.

The Pole Saw comes with a Balance Flex Harness to keep you comfortable all day while using the saw. It also has an Auto Return Stop Switch which will automatically reset to "On" for easy starting.

Just What I Needed
I had previously rented this model and found it very capable. I had considered a Stihl, but I liked the telescoping extension rather than a separate extension. I turned up the chain oiler adjustment and it still didn't use much oil.

Pretty easy on the (clear) gas too. It is a bit heavy but I suppose if it were too much lighter then it probably wouldn't hold up. Point is: a few hours will wear you out. All in all, not cheap but it works well and I would recommend it to others.
Pros: Easy To Use, High Quality, I'd Buy It Again, Fast
Cons: Heavy, Expensive

Popped The Chain Off In With 15 Minutes
Bought this pole saw from my local Husqvarna dealer who serviced it out (adjusted, tested it) as part of a recent fleet package. I bought it to tackle a seriously overgrown blackberry patch. Within 15 minutes of beginning to cut blackberry bushes (not tree limbs!), the chain came off. After remounting the chain it no longer turned.

Upon removal of the chain, and examination back at my shop, I discovered the root cause: the drive cog had rounded off (and left a burr on) several of the... more

Saw Works Well Thus Far. Did A Lot Of Trimming This Past Weekend
Have large parcel with many trees. Saw works well. Only disappointment was that the pictured harness with the saw in the advertisement was not shipped.

Should update advertisement at web site. Was able to purchase a harness on Amazon.com. Its cost must be why they discontinued the shipping of the advertised harness. The belt that they shipped is not as substantial as the advertised one.

Good Reach, Goodby Ladder.
Good pole saw. I like it. Am a little disappointed in the lack of torque at the saw blade especially in the fully extended position. You need to have the saw at full speed prior to lowering onto the branch you are cutting. This causes saw to bounce around when starting to cut and does damage to the area around the cut. More experience with the saw may help this situation.

Many Old Trees
We have an old apple orchard that we want to bring back into production. The trees need a lot of pruning along with a lot of other mature trees on the farm.

The saw works great but I will admit that it takes a bit of getting use to. It is a great product and a great company to deal with.
Pros: High Quality, Reliable, Quiet, I'd Buy It Again
Cons: Heavy

Good Tool
My grandsons and I trimmed and piled a lot of brush creating rabbit habitat in the process over Thanksgiving. Machine cuts better as compared to other machines. Similar engine to Husky's weed eater.

This is a man sized machine, would be too heavy for most women, apologizes to the "amazons" out there...I find myself using the machine for trimming limbs that would be in reach of hand equipment simply because it is faster and less work.

Husky quality means a lot, I recommend that... more

Husqvarna Telescoping Pole Saw
Product arrived quickly and I assembled it without incident. In short, it works GREAT! No more ladder work. It is a bit heavy for a 62 year old, but it's still worth the effort by not having to move a ladder. If you can afford one of these, you won't regret it.

Easy to start, a tad heavy but given the long reach, that's to be expected. Runs great, cuts great.
