To be fair, this is the first chain saw I've ever owned so maybe my rating isn't as actuate as others but I can say that for a first timer, using it was great! Very simple yet powerful. The chain popped on me because I got the saw stuck in between a branch and the tree... of course because I didn't initially read the tips on cutting that comes with the saw lol. So, I had to read the manual to figure out how to get the chain back on and read the cutting tips while I was at it. And worked like a charm. It's amazing how much more open our views are without the low hanging branches. Hope this helps someone.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Big This was a good purchase
This saw works like most of the reviews state. It is easy to get up and running and has no problems cutting both big limbs, some up to 8 inches, and small branchs also. Detached from the pole it easily cleans up the the limbs that were just cut down. Easily cut through cherry, golden chain, and fir. The one negative would be that it doesn't have an auto oiler but they have a tendency to clog up anyway and you also have bring the saw down to you once in a while anyway. Have had no problems with it in the 2 hours I have used it so far.It is a nice not too heavy but cuts easily..

I have 4 very large maple trees and the pole saw had no issues cutting down many branches. Did not use much chain and bar oil at all. Worth noting it doesnt come with the oil, costs about $5 a quart. Also keep in mind the saw weighs about 8lbs or so which gets heavy at the end of an 8ft pole. Disconnects easy too for use as a chainsaw. Very Satisfied

Saw has plenty of power and detachable saw option makes this a very versatile tool. I trimmed up a large oak tree with no trouble; detached the saw from the pole and proceeded to cut up larger limbs into firewood. Great buy for the price.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Woody1 Nice Concept But Did Not Work For Me
The saw cuts through wood effectively and the idea of a pole extension for use on trees is a good one.
One heads up - make sure you have the throttle control on the chain saw depressed down fully before attaching the pole. It was not clear from the directions. If you don't, the assembled unit will not work.
The saw / pole assembly is rather heavy.
I used the product for trimming the upper areas of my willow tree. You cannot see the blade if you are trimming near the top of a tree. Uncut branches kept getting caught in the loop formed by the connected electric cords from the saw and pole. The saw did a ragged job of cutting the softer growth of the willow branches. In addition, cut branches got sucked into the area between the chain and the saw housing. I had to clean out this debris every few minutes.
This product did not work for my purpose and was returned.

This is my second saw. broke the trigger switch on the first one. Careless handling. Improved design on this saw.

This saw is so easy to operate especially to limbs that are at otherwise unreachable heights. Highly recommend this saw for those who have limbs that are difficult to reach. Very lightweight. I can operate this saw for longer periods of time without tiring. This saw is also easy to use when detaching from the extended pole.
