Electric Pole Chainsaws

If you have any shrubs or trees on your property, pruning is a job that you cannot ignore. It is also an enjoyable way to spend time in a backyard, as long as you have the right tools for the job. The best electric pole saws are ideal for cutting branches that are too tough, or too thick, for hand pruners.The extra reach of an extension pole will save you the labor of setting and resetting a ladder repeatedly. Keeping your feet firmly on the ground is always safer, too! Pole pruners can often reach past thick masses of leaves to target the branches that most need cutting. Read more

If you have any shrubs or trees on your property, pruning is a job that you cannot ignore. It is also an enjoyable way to spend time in a backyard, as long as you have the right tools for the job. The best electric pole saws are ideal for cutting branches that are too tough, or too thick, for hand pruners.The extra reach of an extension pole will save you the labor of setting and resetting a ladder repeatedly. Keeping your feet firmly on the ground is always safer, too! Pole pruners can often reach past thick masses of leaves to target the branches that most need cutting.

When to Choose a Corded Electric Device

Corded electric pole saws are ideal for use in smaller backyards. A quality device will have enough power to cut branches several inches across. They will usually outperform cordless models and they are cheaper to buy.

At the same time, a corded device may not be practical for very large properties where long cables need to be run.

If you have a lot of trees, spread over a large area, gas power is probably your best option.

Avoid Using in Dense Foliage

Thin twigs and dense foliage get chewed up with any kind of power saw. The result is ugly and your device can jam or be damaged. Brush is better tackled with garden shears, a hedge trimmer or, in some cases, a weed eater/strimmer.

Things to Look Out for When Choosing the Best Machine

Sawing at Ground Level and Detachable Pole Saws Many machines can be used for sawing at ground level (as illustrated above) but it is often easier if the chainsaw can simply be taken off the pole.

If you do not mind working from a ladder, this kind of detachable chainsaw can offer extra options for pruning hard to reach branches too.

Some pole saws have the motor at the end you hold, and cannot be taken off. The advantage of with this kind of pole saw is that it is better balanced, less unwieldy and easier on your shoulders.

Working Height

If a manufacturer says their product has a 'ten-foot reach' this does not mean it is ten feet long. The pole is actually a few feet shorter than ten feet, and your arms provide the extra reach.

Most electric pole saws have a working height of 12 to 15 feet.

Need a Longer Reach?

A manual pole pruner might be all you need for pruning small branches. They can often reach higher, too. A professional manual pole saw can reach 25 feet!

What Size Branches can an Electric Pole Saw Cut?

Eight amp machines can tackle softwood branches several inches across. Four or five-inch branches are a breeze, even with hardwood trees.

The 'guide bar', the plate of steel that the chain spins around, is a rough guide to the size of branches the saw can cut. A ten-inch bar will cut an eight-inch branch with ease, and so on.

What do they Weigh?

Most electric pole saws weigh less than ten pounds which is a lot lighter than a big gas model.

For people used to being active in their backyards, these machines will not present too much of a challenge.

Having said that, bear in mind that they can still be a strain on your back, especially if you not too fit. A manual pole pruner will be slower but it will be lighter.

Safety Issues

The biggest problem with any chainsaw is kick-back. If the blade jams in the wood, the power of the motor kicks back. With powerful chain saws this can mean they twist out of inexperienced hands.

The electric chain saws on this page are less of a danger than a big gas-machine but you should still take care to read the instructions before use.

As with any machinery, a hard hat, safety glasses and a tough pair of gloves are recommended. Avoid loose clothing that can snag on the chain and drag you to the blades.
