$100 magic

I researched and read lots of reviews, so I knew what the negatives would be about a corded pole saw of this type (actual chainsaw attached to the end of a pole). Yes it will be heavier and bulkier for cutting limbs than any of the pole saws that can't double as a chainsaw. Yes there will be a cord or cords to deal with, and with 9 amps, if you're going out 100' or more, you should probably have a 12-gauge cord, and these are expensive if you don't have one already. And this was the heavies and largest and most powerful corded model on the market. This means that when you hold it up to cut a limb, the saw itself is going to get hung up on other limbs and prevent cutting; you've got to have patience and determination. This also means you've got to be careful but stand nearly right under the limbs and branches. But what makes it all worth it is that once you get all the trimming done, now you've got a usable chainsaw, and I mean usable. I cut down a 12" diameter tree and a 9" diameter limb with this thing. Cut down many 3-5 inch trees and cut them all up with the chainsaw (disconnected from the pole). The only thing I didn't do with this machine was cut my large limb and my large tree up into logs, because for that, I really need a bigger saw, but I did a $500 job (other than the logs) with this $100 saw in about 9 hours. This saw will cut whatever you want. Being electric, even though it's slower RPM than a gas unit, it just keeps chugging along; won't bog down and stop like a gas unit, the torque of an electric allows it just to keep cutting and turning. And this is the strongest one on the market with that one extra amp over the Worx and Remington models. I've not used one of the other brands, but I can't imagine how they could be better quality; the auto oiler works as advertised; the pole extends easily and is strong; switching from pole saw to chain saw is quick and easy. Everything is tool less. The bar and chain are durable and sharp (it cuts well) even after 9 hours of cutting and a pint of oil, my unit still cuts well.

Automatic bar and chain oiler fails

I'd like to give this a five star review. Everything about this saw is great except for one thing - the automatic oiler. I went through three saws and they all had the same problem. The first saw started leaking oil internally after the second time using it. Turns out the oil line popped off the nipple on the high pressure side. I zipped tied it back into place, but the pump itself failed after that. The second saw had the line pop off both connections on the high pressure side on separate occasions and then the pump failed on that as well. With the third saw, I zip tied both high pressure line fittings before first use and everything was fine for the first hour of use, then the pump stopped pumping oil to the bar. I managed to get it to work briefly by applying air pressure through the oil tank opening, but it didn't work for very long after that. I ended up returning the third for a refund. Other than that it seems to be a good saw...
