Re: OT? Cordless pole saw recommendation?

Grant Smith
JL,

I have a pro grade Jameson 3 pole setup that has both a pruner and a saw head. I think it reaches about 20', maybe a bit more. No batteries, no motor, just hand work. The crazy sharp saw can cut through a 4" limb easily in about 2 minutes. The pruner head, with its compound rope system can cut a 1" limb easily, and can get through about 1.5" limbs on some species of trees.

I can't imagine a homeowner needing a motor for this kind of occasional work unless one has a huge tree'd lot.

If there were a downside, it can be difficult to heft the unit with all of the sections on to vertical, especially under the canopy of a tree where there are always obstacles. It seems to me this would be even harder with a motorized machine.

Bailey's.com has a good selection of pro grade tools for arborist work. Worth a look.

FWIW,

Grant in Iowa
