Answer: 
Hi Evelyn,



This unit was $99. There is a similar unit available, the RYOBI Electric Pole Saw, at the same price in stores and online. I hope this helps!

8 in. Electric Pole Saw-DISCONTINUED is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 118.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Run the other way!!!! Eight years ago I had a Homelite blower that lasted six months. I put it in the corner of the shed and was going to repair it. The next year my two year old Homelite trimmers went up. That was the day I hired a lawn care service. For Christmas this year I received a Homelite electric tree trimmer. I pretended to be happy but was not. I cut the first branch to perfection. On the second cut, the head fell off. It was comical. My humble recommendation is to find another product and keep as far away from Homelite as possible. Keep in mind that Homelite, Milwaukee and Ryobi have all been acquirted by TTI, a Chinese company. There's your problem.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice, If you understand what you are buying. Home Depot properly labels this as 9 FT. It is NOT 15 ft long. The claim by Homelite of 15 ft is explained in the fine print as "you can reach 15 ft". But even this is not true. The device has a usable cut length of about 8 feet from the grip to the center of the blade. The length is not adjustable. I am over 6 feet tall and can comfortably hold the trigger handle about 4 feet off the ground allowing me to cut limbs up to about 12 feet up. But consider that you are not normally going to use it exactly verticle, with wood chips falling in your face. All that said, it is a good tool and has worked fine for me with no chain issues that others have reported. It is far better than being on a ladder with a hand saw. Just understand what you are buying.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Design positively stinks. Let me say it was way easier than a manual pole saw. Cuts quite well but...... before you buy, tie a brick on the end of a 9 foot pole then lift it from the other end of the stick. That's what it will be like using this saw. This pole saw is identical with another "green" brand. Mine will not extend/collapse without using a hammer. Took 20 minutes to assemble. Should take 20 seconds Clips would not lock as they should and kept releasing when trying to adjust pole length then fell apart on me while on my shed roof. If you want to leave it at a fixed length, then I'd give it 2 stars for value, 5 for cutting speed (when saw is new and sharp).

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Unreliable Chain Tension Cuts well when chain is tight but chain becomes too loose when cutting. I had to stop and adjust tension mid way thru cutting a 6" branch, for example. When I took the time to continually readjust the tension, the saw worked fine...but the constant need to adjust the tension is a major hassle. If the tension loosened, then the chain would come off the guide...and sometimes would be damaged in the process, requiring replacement if the chain was too bent or otherwise damaged. Also, the telescoping feature would be better if the minimum length was shorter. Competitor saws have a removable saw head...very nice feature that this saw lacks.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poorly designed garbage...DO NOT BUY! Pole saw was only used 3 times and on the third time the safety button you need to press in order to get the saw to engage failed, making the entire saw useless. I'm not sure why the entire saw's operation is hinged on one cheap piece of plastic button but if that button fails you have a heavy piece of garbage, like I do. I now have to take the time to return this one and find a new saw all because of 1 cheap, plastic button??? GARBAGE!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does the job For the price this saw performs well and does what it's supposed to. Just check chain tension regularly, keep oil in the lube tank and it works fine. When putting it together, remember the pole is "egg" shaped....not oval; it will only go together one way...so if it's not going together, flip one of the poles. The biggest problem I found is it will not pick up the limbs and throw them away for you; this takes some of the fun out of cutting everything within your reach.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Light weight and cuts great, poor parts backing. Worked great on every tree I used it on, until I lost the nut holding it together. Their online parts group took the order two months ago, I'm still waiting and they will not call me back. Good product, but if it breaks just throw it away.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from No way Id recommend this to anyone! Homelite must have gone out of its way to make this junk. You cut maybe 6-8 small branches (2 " round), then you have to reattach the chain and pour more oil into it. You work 10 minutes then spend another 10 fixing the saw.
