What to Look For?
The electric pole saw, or some would like to call them as “Saws on Sticks,” are famous as it allows you to trim small branches and other light trimming work. While just about any electric pole saw is useful, there are some things to consider to help you get the best out of your purchase.
To start, the length of the pole should be adequate to suit your specific requirements. Take note of this characteristic as this might be a major deal-breaker for you. When you purchase a pole saw, and you find out only after the transaction is complete that the total length of the shaft falls short of what you need, then consider your cash thrown out the window.
Another characteristic to consider is the weight of the pole saw. While electric pole saws are lighter than other pole saw variants (there are gas-powered and cordless varieties), a lightweight saw can help you reach high branches without worry of weighing down your arms.
Using an electric pole saw might look odd at first, the handy device can be a very handy addition to your landscaping arsenal. Furthermore, even if it might be tempting to play around with it by riding it like a witch’s broomstick, don’t ever attempt to do so as you might end up with a serious injury.
