Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Steve Everything they said
Recently after a great deal of research I decided to try this pole saw. I ordered it on line an it arrived a couple of days early. Some assembly was required, it took about 30 minutes to put together and then charge the batteries. The battery it came with allows for approximately a half hour of cut time. The replacement battery which is quit a bit larger last a substantial time longer, 45 minutes. to a hour.
I have been cutting a variety of material sizes and wood types and I am completely satisfied to date. I am really glad I held out for this saw with the telescopic pole and adjustable cutting head positions.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by rlhaus Good saw for the money. Used several times and works well.
I have used this pole saw several times, for over a half hour each time, and it cuts through 4"-5" limbs with ease. The battery recharges quickly. The only problem that I have with it is that the blade gets stuck in the wood, but this is rare. It remains to be seen how long the battery will last before I have to buy a new one. If it lasts for a long time, I'm happy with this purchase.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Robert Great for home use
Great for what it is, home use. I would recommend this product solely on the manufacturer customer service after I had a problem with the motor. I contacted the company and they immediately took care of it. I would buy another one of their products.

I have been using the regular pole saw to trim branches along my property line to make it easier to cut the grass. (approximately 500') This saw just made it a lot quicker to get that "twice a year" project completed. Battery life is about 20-30 minutes depending on how you use the saw. I learned to let the battery "cool" a few minutes before putting it back into the charger or it will flash "defective". Once it has cooled some it will charge fine. While the battery is charging, I'm hauling off what I had cut. I believe if you treat it properly it will last for some time, It definately isn't for the pros, just weekend warriors. Going to order another battery and a spare chain, The best part no gasoline, no trying to start a motor that has been sitting up half the year., quieter, light weight also.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by retiredsoldier Good for light to medium duty around the house
This saw is a little top heavy, could use more power/chain speed and only cuts about an hour before needing a recharge. It is however a good light to medium duty saw for household use. If you read and follow the manual (for things like battery life, chain service/tightened, saw speed) you shouldn't be disappointed. I've only used it about 4 hours but haven't had any of the problems other people have mentioned. This is my first battery powered saw of any type and it has exceeded my expectations. I've cut limbs and trees up to approximately 6 inches without any trouble. My biggest problem is my buds wanting to borrow it.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by James Great for trimming and pruning
This is a relatively light duty tool although it will cut 6-8" diameter limbs. It works very well for the purpose for which I bought it. The battery has relatively short life, may be and hour or so of brush clearing, but recharges quickly. Easy to use and good reach for pruning and cutting out dead branches. A very useful tool.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jojo Earthwise Pole Saw - Battery Powered
I was a bit hesitant at first for buying any saw that was powered by a battery. But this saw is totally awesome. It cuts limbs six inch in diameter and really handles itself very well. For an older female, I found putting it together a bit tricky as the manual was horrible.
But once I charged the battery and got the saw going, it lasted almost all day trimming everything from pine to walnut to maple. And it still ran the next day before the battery just died.
The only CON on this whole thing was the weight at 9 pounds and the pole is thick cardboard type. I wouldn't extended it very far as it isn't sturdy enough. But for an all around saw to trim branches and cut thick tree stuff, this pole saw ROCKS!
Great battery life, cuts through just about anything and handles well at a short extension.
