This is a good product and cuts very well however I am partially disabled and it is hard for me to reach even with the long pole. My 16 yr old daughter and my husband have no problem lifting it. It's not heavy however for me it is awkward.
Not powerful enough! Does not charge well
Was offered this as a replacement for my old Craftsman pole pruner for $55 and after initial disappointment I am extremely happy with this saw. Handles 4 to 6 inch limbs with ease. Lightweight and easy to use. I ended up purchasing the sweeper and weed trimmer, both work just as well. These 24 volt tools are light work so don't expect to be able to down a whole tree. it's a good idea too have extra batteries.
This thing does a great job for being battery operated. Very convenient that it doesn't need fuel. It does need chain oil, though. Make sure you read the instructions. I didn't and the chain fell off since it stretches when you first use it and needs to have the tension adjusted after the first few minutes of use. You can use it at full length or take out the middle pole to make it shorter if you are cutting things closer to the ground. Overall a great value! I was going to buy an extra battery but instead bought the 24v weed trimmer on sale for $89! Having two tools that share batteries, for not that much more money than buying just an extra battery was the way to go!
Easy to use. It held it's charge to take down LOTS of branches.
