Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JP QUICK electric trimmer
My gas trimmer is loud, heavy (but balanced) hard to start, & dirty. This electric one is the opposite! I easily pruned 8 trees including oak limbs up to 3" diameter. I made a few slower felling cuts up to 5" but still quicker than starting my gas chainsaw. Cons- doesn't cone with chain oil or a wrench. It's top heavy - hard to hold up and out at 45 degrees. It's very easy to use from a ladder but beginners shouldn't do it. It doesn't extend as far as I'd like nor does t it close as short as it looks like it could(apparently the top and bottom both can't fit in the center).Pluses: quiet, sharp and surprisingly powerful. Don't know how durable it is, but I'll use this anywhere I can reach with my 50` extension cord.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Soundman50000 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 1.0 out of 5.0 by Douglas Very poor design - spent all time putting chain back on.
The design of the blade to housing is very poor. The chain came off about 10 times in 1 hour. The lead screw which puts tension on the chain loosens easily. The mount of the plate to the base is cheap and allows for too much movement. Do not purchase this.

Works well for small limbs up to about 4". It is head heavy and difficult to maneuver when on a ladder or in a tree. Be very careful!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Welch796 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!
