Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Roddy10045 Homelite Pole Chainsaw
Overall a good unit. The long pole makes the trimming job a whole lot safer and easier. This unit is powerful enough to get through the largest of branches. It does what it is supposed to do - very well.
There are a couple of drawbacks (but in no way lessens the bonus of easy, safe trimming of those lower branches):
1. my chain oil reservoir cap would not tighten securely because the threads were somewhat stripped, the cap has now fallen off an is lost, I guess I'll use some plastic wrap and an elastic band to keep the chain oil in.
2. the chain seems to loosen frequently, the chain adjustment takes only a minute and is easy to do.
3. the extensions on the pole will not both go in all the way, at the same time, so the overall length of the unit when stored is not as short as it could be.
4. This unit is not light. As such, using the unit is easy for short quick jobs, but working with it for over an hour turns into quite the workout.
5. the chain oil reservoir is small... seems every time I looked at it, it was empty.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by g0mang0 Overhead cutting good. Reaching out isa little more harder on the arms. Over all, not bad. One thing that could ease this problem is have the handle telescope to lengthen or to shorten.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by navets this product rocks
My standing Birtch tree was no match. The saw paid for itself in the first 1/2 hour. Easy to use and very efficient. I thought it might be awkward to use but no.

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 1.0 out of 5.0 by Steve 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 4.0 out of 5.0 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.
