Re: General question about pole saw use

William Duffield
The blade on my pole saw has three holes for the alignment pin in addition to the attachment hole for the bolt and wing nut. It is therefore adjustable for a straight cut in line with the pole, or for a top cut at about 45° forward, or for a bottom cut, about 45° back. Adjust the blade back, make a bottom cut a little less than half way through, adjust the blade forward, make a top cut a little farther out on the branch, adjust the blade again to the straight ahead position, and cut off the stump back at the collar. There is lots of internet help for appropriate dimensions depending on the size of the branch and type of tree.
