Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Soundman5000 Best product for the price EVER! Cut hardwood OAK limbs, like butter!
I must say I was impressed with the ability of this inexpensive pole saw. When unpacking the unit just snaps together and you must push the little pin lock things in but it snaps together in like 30 seconds, put some bar and chain oil in ( not included ) and you are in business!
I needed to get some rater large hardwood oak tree limbs away from my roof. The professionals wanted a arm and a leg so I searched for options. I old manual saw on a stick thing was NOT an option as some of my branches were 4" to 5", I had my doubts this little guy would work but it cut through these big branches like butter! The 6 amp motor never slowed down and had plenty of power.
After finishing my tree cut today I was left feeling like I had stumbled on a super deal as I truly did not expect this saw to handle this big job like it did. I am so impressed I will consider Ryobi 1st, when it comes to my future home improvement needs as I got more than I paid for! .
The chain did pop off as I was finishing ( always happens when I use a chain saw) but only one small bolt to take the bar off and put the chain back on, far easer than ANY chain saw I have ever used in the past. With that in mind, this Pole saw worked better and had more power than any electric chain saws I have used in the past. The unit does NOT include bar and chain oil so do not forget yours when purchasing this fine product. Pics included of the large hardwood limbs this little guy chopped right through today...Very impressed, A true time and money saver and very easy to use!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by okcop516 Nice trimmer, job done
I bought this after an ice storm for clean up of debris. It cuts really well and is easy to operate. The only issues I have is the chain guard is very poor quality and the length of reach is too short.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Butch Very good purchase for my needs..
The pole saw is of very good quality and I was able to get done what I needed to do as far a trimming my trees. I would liked to have more length on the pole but that probably would have made handlng the weight of the saw more difficult. All in all I am very pleased with both the quality and price of the pole saw...

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TrustyJ Quite the handy addition to the shed
I used this to trim my palm trees. It cuts through the leaves and fronds easily. It is easy to use and have had no issues. I see others mention chain popping off, you have to tighten it before use to prevent that. Don't forget to check the chain oil level. If this pole saw was longer it may be too difficult to control so I believe the height is good. You can always get on a sturdy step ladder to reach higher places. There is much less maintenance using electric.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DanP48 Ryobi 6-Amp Pole Chainsaw
This Pole Chainsaw worked very well, easy to use and obviously, starts every time! I love an electric chainsaw as I don't use one a chainsaw often and gas powered saws were always hard starting. Trimmed an oak tree and the saw worked beautifully through the very hard wood.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Suesy71 Piece of junk
Only one available at my Home Depot so I purchased. Was cutting a small area and chain popped twice and it wouldn't go thru the brush. I didn't even attempt to cut a limb on a sapling. Putting it back in box and getting my money back. Piece of junk
