Rated 4 out of 5 by Ryobi does it again I was going to just rent a pole saw from home depot because I figured how often would I be cutting tree limbs. However, after 2 rentals I would already be equal to the cost of the Ryobi pole saw so I decided to buy one instead. This is the first time I've tried a pole chain saw, and I was pleasantly surprised because I did not know what to expect. My thickest limb was maybe 5" and it cut through like a hot knife through butter. It also worked well on skinny branches that I had to lob off. Couple of points though -- buy the chain oil, and fully understand how to tension the chain. At first I was a bit confused on where the tensioning screw was, but found it in the front of the head- phillips head. I checked mine every so often, it does need re-tensioning during your use, and also top ups of the chain oil. Second point, be aware that the head is a bit on the heavy side. I had no problem with it. I actually used the weight to my advantage - I would position the saw where I wanted to cut, let it rest, and turn on the motor. I then let it cut through on the pressure of its own weight -- just hold it firm though cause when it cuts through a limb you dont want it swinging down because you eased up too much. Third point, clean out the head when you store it and pour out the extra oil. You'd be surprised how much gunk ends up under the cover of the head. Just follow the instructions on how to remove it - basically just one nut. Overall, very happy with the product. Made short work of some nasty limbs that were threatening the side of my house.

Rated 5 out of 5 by This electric pole saw rules First time I have ever owned a pole saw, let alone an electric one. I bought this saw based on the positive reviews and I am not disappointed. I have used it on three occasions so far, trimming high overhanging branches that border our driveway on both sides. I have not had issues like other reviewers have complained about. I have had to adjust the chain once. The saw cuts through 6" limbs with ease. It uses a little bit of chain oil but I expected that. It is light weight and I just keep it extended all the time and store it that way. Even if it dies tomorrow, it has already paid for itself versus hiring a company and paying them $75 an hour.

Rated 5 out of 5 by I love my pole chainsaw Wow!!!! What a purchase. Cut threw the limbs like butter. Even one 3" around. Not hard to put together at all. I thought it was not heavy at all either. I am a woman over 60 and could handle this saw just beautifully. I highly recommend it. October 28, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Overall good product Good product - easy to assemble and use. The main issue is it is a bit heavy when extended -- but when the motor and chain are at the end of the pole -- what do you expect? The weight helps when cutting (down force) but once you cut through the branch the fall weight can be tough to handle. I work out regularly so not a major issue for me -- but for people without the upper body strength it could be an issue. Also - after the first cut the chain became a bit loose -- easy to adjust and expected as this is common with chain saws --just a heads up. On the positive side - I trimmed an area in an hour that would normally take me several -- and NEVER had to get onto a ladder. June 3, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Paid for its self I tried to rent a gas powered pruner but they didn't have one. I bought this and an electric chainsaw for less than what I was going to pay to rent for the weekend. The first saw I bought lasted about an hour. I was working it harder than I should have. I took it back and was a little more gentle with the second one. I completed the job of cutting back a large oak tree. With some TLC this will cut well. I cut some 8" limbs. If you work it too hard It won't last. Keep the cuts square and keep it oiled and you shouldn't have any problems. April 22, 2014
