Losen the bottom collar and slide the middle pole down as far as it will go. Then tighten the collar. Next loosen the top collar and slide the top pole (with chainsaw head) down as far as it will go & retighten collar.

yeah, cord is that long inside but should be able to retract to clearly marked lines on fiberglass tubing. I wish cord and extension were longer, so I'd not have to unsafely work from a ladder to avoid expensive tree laborers, but suspect it's ironically a safety reason.

I wish cord and extension were longer, so I'd not have to unsafely work from a ladder to avoid expensive tree laborers, but suspect it's ironically a safety reason. Consider that the effort to lift and maneuver the fully extended pole is directly proportional to extension length so twice as long would take twice the strength and more stability for me to hold it in place. Wish there was a way to electronically bypass safety switch so I could add pole to handle end while constantly on. Most danger for me is the ladder with falling limbs and stability, sigh. Read Less

Answer: 
Twist the gray collars on either end as needed. After I used mine for a bit, the restriction seemed to slacken. I assumed the cord inside was jammed. There is a limit to how far it will retract. I noticed there were limit marks for when it was fully extended but not retracted.

Answer: 
Did you buy an open box? if so your cord was probably stretched to the point the elasticity was lost creating a road block per say in the middle section just like mine has there's nothing you can do other than returning it to store or dealing with telescoping feature that doesn't allow it to retract fully.

Answer: 
Manual ignores your question completely but I removed mine to get more than teaspoon of oil in and enough oil flow to cool blade and resist easy chain derailment even with full chain tension. Even if manufacturer told me to leave it in, then I'd remove it as rather use more chain oil than mess with derailment as often or waiting as long for blade to cool so I can fix derailed chain every 15 minutes.

Answer: 
My experience was to leave it in, and everything worked fine. For an hour. Until the inside of the chain dulled and stopped fitting into the blade, rendering the entire Ryobi useless. Time to waste my time buying a new chain, that will no doubt also fail.

Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 265 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by like butter Had several branches over hanging the roof this tool was just what i needed. Its easy to use and got the job done. Shingles safe for a few years. September 4, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best $100 I ever spent!!! I've owned this for a year now... I tell everyone about it. I'm short on time but don't bother reading any reviews under 5 stars because honestly this tool is GREAT! So glad I got the CORDED model. September 7, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Chain keeps falling off Chain keeps falling off every 10min. It worked great about 40 min and then chain kept falling off September 6, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Highly recommend We bought this to trim the limbs of a tree before we used a chain saw to take the base of the tree down. It performed way beyond our expectations. Great little saw. Just make sure to oil the chain. Highly recommend! August 30, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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! April 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great purchase Comfortable lightweight powerful reasonably priced August 30, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by No more back ache Comes packaged very well and is easy to assemble, just 2 insert and screw lock fasteners. HAs all the power you could want in this type of pruning saw. Makes quick work of tough dead palm fronds. Easy to clean. August 9, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Initially worked but chain came off My neighbor purchased this Ryobi for light duty and even lent it out to other neighbors no issue, I used it for some limbs so I was familiar with 8" chain performance. I went ahead and purchase for my own, I filled the oil reservoir to the top and started the unit. Pros: Did the job but with a lot of work on users part. Cons: After 30 minutes the oil reservoir emptied, I did not think I needed to keep a watchful eye, I asked my neighbors who used my neighbor's for an extended time beyond 30 minutes, they did not have to refil oil reservoir. Chain came off as a result of self lubricating unit. Some other reviewers have commented to have a larger oil reservoir to compensate for usage. The pole would not adjust or telescope, don't know if that was an option, all I know is I could not tighten the coupling sections and it just jiggled and was top heavy another major issue other reviewers have commented, When you are up a 32 ft ladder, it gets a little scary when you can't retract it. Extension cord could not be tucked inside handle, Ryobi hole is not big enough, need to wrap around handle. On balance, I don't think this is worth $99. I will purchase a pro level gas unit with a telescope pole. August 12, 2016
