Answer: 
I don't know what a fixed extension is for a chainsaw.
The chain is lubed by the automatic oiler pump that's built into the saw.
Keep oil in the reservoir on this saw and your chain will stay lubed!

Answer: 
ECHO Power Pruners can efficiently cut any size limb. However, when pruning a limb 4 inches (10.2cm) in diameter or larger cut as follows:
1. Under cut ¼ of the limb diameter near the tree trunk.
2. Finish top cut slightly out on the limb from the tree trunk.
3. Flush cut stub at the trunk.

12 in. 13 ft. Bar Telescoping Gas Pole Pruner is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 41.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cutting machine I've been wanting a pole saw for a long time. It seems as though I was borrowing my brothers Stihl all the time for trimming. We have an Echo pole saw at work and have put it through some pretty rigorous cuttings. Both good saws, but the Echo is a lot easier to maneuver and hang on to with the handle, and the one at work has NEVER failed me in the 7 years the company has owned it. My work also owns 5 Echo weed trimmers and we never have issues with them either. And that's why I bought an Echo.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Darn Good Pole Saw Don't know why they call it a pruner. Fully extended it'a a hoss you don't wave around. Cram the hook against the limb with the blade over the top and give it the gas. Catch it when it has cut through and everything is falling on you! Not obnoxiously loud. Have it shipped to the store. Takes longer but you get a clean box and all the parts. You do have to assemble it. Intermediate degree of difficulty. Not a toy. Enjoy removing high lower limbs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Echo 13' 12" Pole Trimmer This is well built and has good value. The only problem is it is a bit awkward to use. I had considered getting the 4' extension and may yet do that but I was glad I didn't have it on and fully extended the first go at trimming. This is a tool that looks like it will be with me for a long time. As far as I know the only two choices that made sense were the Stihl professional trimmer and this one. I think this one is as good as the Stihl.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Has plastic pieces on the drive shaft... a $.33 piece ruins a $700 saw. There is a plastic piece on the drive shaft that joins the pole and the actual saw. It will wear out if you cut anything that is remotely hard wood. This happened after the 4th limb. Took mine back and got a STHL and it worked flawlessly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love my PPT-280 Bought the 280 about 2 weeks ago and I love it. Gets to those higher branches with ease, thank god for the strap that was issued with it, you need it it's a bit too heavy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from As advertised! Researched All pole saws and the Echo was by far the best! Unbelievable reach with the 4 foot power pole extension. Heavy as expected. Well worth the investment!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pole Pruner Saw The saw is easy to use. Only thing that would be a nice feature would be a adjustable blade. To be able to tilt or change the angle of the blade would be nice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Echo power pruner Love this echo, I've used it 3 times already for those hard to reach branches. It's heavy AN too heavy, you have to use the strap that came with it.
