Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cony Echo power pruner i(PAS)
It definitely has the power and easily cuts through saplings and overhead branches around the same size. The thing I like about this the most is that it is easy to switch out attachments and the balance of the tool make it easy to use and doesn't tire you out too quickly. I weigh under 120 and am a lady and I can last through a tank of gas. I would recommend this to any person who has a lot of land maintenance.

Ordered the item through HD Online and received it very quickly. This is a very high quality attachment as has been my experience with other Echo products. I was a little concerned about how this saw would work as I have the smaller PAS-225 power head. That concern/hesitation went away immediately the first time I used it as it cuts through limbs with ease. This tool is not cheap, but you get what you pay for and I would highly recommend it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ray This is an awesome pruner attachment
The attachment was easy to assemble and started cutting right away. I used it to cut over 3" diameter branches down to twigs. It cut the 3" as easy as the twigs. I strongly recommend this. I now use this instead of my chain saw.. Much easier and no ladder needed. Much safer.

Worked great. Much better product than Poulan. Echo saw bar is longer than the less expensive products. Also purchased the hedge trimmer attachment and it works great as well.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MAV Get This (with extension)
Make sure to pick up the extension with this item or you will be waiting on the mailman twice.
I have the PAS 225 power plant and several other attachments along with this one (power pruner).
They all work great and whenever there is a problem (rare) the whole thing power plant included is EASY to repair with the included multi tool.
I only use the premixed TruFuel 50:1 and so I see no problems with the engine and next to zero soot and muck accumulation to clean off.
The shipping container it comes in is very flimsy and does not stand up to shipping so have it sent to a HomeDepot store so if it's missing any small pieces or items from falling out during the rough shipping you can have it noted before taking possession.
It works great and is easy to use and so get ready to build up those forearms and shoulders people because after about 20 mins it feels like you are fishing for dog sized fish.
A very satisfying attachment for a very satisfying system.
The PAS Power Pruner Attachment, #99944200532, uses a 10" bar/chain. The part numbers are listed below; #10A0CD3739 - 10" Bar and #91VXL39CQ - 10" Chain - 39 links.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JKC123 Best $200 spent
I have a section of yard approximately 125x25 that has been overgrown with ligustrum that is over 15 feet tall along with briers and skinny trees stretching 30' to reach the sun. It's been that way since we bought the place nearly 7 years ago. Every summer we have debated hiring someone to clear it out for us but were hesitant to find out what the cost would be. Recently, we saw an assisted living facility with their tall ligustrum neatly trimmed. We decided to try that ourselves. That's why I bought the Echo pruner attachment. (I already have the trimmer and edger attachments and love them.) It made short work of the low hanging ligustrum limbs, as well as the skinny trees. The city estimated our debris at the street to be about 30 cubic yards. We have about 25x25 left to do. The pruner has operated perfectly, has made easy work of our job and as I told my wife, is the best $200 I've spent in a long time.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MoPro Easier to use than expected
I was afraid this would be hard on your back, heavy or awkward when cutting limbs. It proved to be simple. I was able to quickly cut lower limbs on a rows of trees. I used an extension on a few and it was easy to use as well. Saved tremendous amount of time without need of ladder or worrying about falling off a ladder with a chain saw....
