Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great Tool I have about 2.5 miles of road to maintain on my family farm. This was the only tool that could reach up and in to clear away the high branches. It's also great when you can't reach in get to a branch or small tree because the undergrowth is too thick. I looked at different brands before I decide on Echo. Then I rented an Echo to try it out. I realized I couldn't live without it. I have at least 30 hours on the saw with zero problems. I sharpen the blade lightly with a hand file after every tank of fuel. This makes a night and day difference. My only gripe is the shoulder harness. When I rented one I noticed the harness really didn't help that much. Echo should include a dual shoulder harness and add a hook for the strap about four feet up the shaft from the power head to achieve a good balance. My solution was to use a piece of rubber, two hose clamps and a metal D ring. I put them on the shaft about four feet up from the power head. I bought a $20 trimmer harness to hook in here. To make this work I strap one harness over my right shoulder and hook it to the D ring on the shaft the other harness on my left shoulder on the connected to the right hook by the powerhead. This works great. Yes, I highly recommend the saw, but Echo should provide a better harness and hook in system. October 21, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works great, Very powerful cuts well, good buy exactly what you expect Know what you are buying, It is a long tool and is heavy, but for as far as it reaches it is very light and manageable. Definitely works great! September 23, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great power great saw ,great power, I already owned a smaller pole saw and this one saws circles around the smaller one, it is heavier so beware of the weight June 6, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Product This pruner makes tree pruning work much easyer. Easy starting and features make it a must for anyone with numerous trees on your property. June 8, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great tool! I don't need a ladder, I can reach all that I need with the echo 17 ft pole pruner. A real time saver...and a money maker. July 24, 2012
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by great tool poorly packaged! The pole pruner is a very good tool. Good quality and well built. It required some assembly which was expected but it wasn't well packaged for shipment. Everything just sort of rattled around in the box. One small part (adjusting nut for throttle cable) was missing. Fortunately I found a replacement at the local Ace Hardware store. March 31, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by This product has one huge drawback. The quality of the product seemed to be good, but there needs to be some sort of additional support strap system (to be included with the product) for when you have extended it to its maximum length as it is it becomes so heavy when extended that you can only use it for about 10 minutes at a time.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Makes cutting trees easier Never knew a 12" bar could cut such big branches. Wish I'd bought it way earlier. December 4, 2012
