Remington Pole Saw

,
March 13, 2014
By deanq
from AZ
"Bought this to trim mesquite trees along our drive. The overall reach is perfect for these size tree. (rarely over 20' tall). I was surprised how well it cut. It handled 6" dia. branches with ease. Was rather easy to maneuver with pole fully extended. The pole assembly is VERY sturdy. I would second the other reviewers comment on keeping the chain sharp. Its what makes this so effective IMO."

Light Duty Electric Pole Saw

,
February 10, 2014
By PhilMN
from Minnesota
"Overhead work with a manual pole saw is tiring, even with a sharp blade. And professional, powered pole saws are expensive. This electric pole saw fills a nice gap for homeowner use.
I have owned this saw for several years and pruned many trees in the neighborhood with it. All have been within 100' of an outlet, so the electric cord has not been an issue. And the electric motor is convenient, compared to a gas saw. The ability to use it as a hand held saw for branches on the ground is a nice feature, and also breaks the unit down smaller for storage.
But the saw is lightly constructed, compared to most other electric chainsaws. It will not stand up to heavy use or abuse. It is not a firewood saw. If you keep the chain sharp, and let the saw do the work on branches, it can be a good choice for homeowner use.
I gave it 4 stars instead of 3 because it does work well within it's limits."

"....For Home projects. Has performed flawlessly on several projects. Auto-oiling would be nice but for the money, manual works fine. As with any tool, clean well after use and it'll work well when you need it."

Remington Electric Pole Saw 10" Bar Mod# 1015DPS

,
November 7, 2012
By DJ02
from Green Valley, Arizona
"I used this pole saw to trim Queen Ann Palm fronds. It works like a bomb. Lots of reach without having to get on a ladder. Not too hard to handle at full extension but certainly not a light little toy.
Good instruction booklet and safety articles. Only complaint is that the oiler dribbles and leaks when the saw is turned off and waiting to be used again. Not just a drop or two, like a 1/8 cup of oil. Messy. This saw is very aggressive and certainly does the job with ease.

chainsaw, telescoping

,
October 26, 2012
By Crashf6
from Buckeye, AZ
"Bought product to trim Mesquite tree. It accomplished task in relatively short time satisfactorily. Of note, in lower
branch environments, one has to cut more laterally
vs vertically. With the weight of the chain saw, at the end, this can be quite challenging from weight and angle.
Found that bracing handle on hip/thigh for additional support afforded some benefit.
Given that, it did accomplish task and was much more efficient then pruners as obviously some branches were much too large to prune

Two Thumbs Up!!

By MikeyD22
from Palmerton,PA
"I spent two hours one day on an older pine tree cleaning up the bottom branches with a manual pole trimmer . I thought there has to be a better way! Here it is! I used this unit once so far and in ten minutes I accomplished what would have taken me over two hours with a manual pole trimmer. The unit is well constructed for normal homeowner use."

Remington pole saw

,
October 12, 2012
By Markuda
from Chisholm, Mn.
"I have a lot of trees in my yard and I purchased this mostly for general trimming. I like the fact that its just not a pole saw because you can use the saw by itself for cutting small logs. I would have given it five stars, but I would've liked an automatic oiler on the saw. The manual oiler works fine, but an automatic would be preferred. It does get A bit heavy after a while but it works great."

Really good tool for minor tree work

,
October 8, 2012
By LadyRancher
from Mustang, OK
"I purchased this tool for minor "above" tree trimming of minor limbs. For the price - this tool over performed for what I expected. Some folks may complain about the oil requiring to be emptied before storage - but considering the ease of which the chain is oiled during use - I personally do not mind doing this. I would and will recommend purchasing this electric chain saw to friend wanting something to get those pesky smaller dead branches out of their trees."

BEWARE DECEPTIVE DESCRIPTION

By STEVIED46
from TUCSON
"THE DEAL ABOUT A 15 FT. EXTENSION DOES NOT MEAN THE LENGTH OF THE POLE. IT IS HOW HIGH A 6 FT PERSON CAN REACH WITH THE SAW ON THE EXTENDED POLE.. OTHERWISE IT IS A CHEAP ELECTRIC CHAINSAW ATACHED TO A POLE. WORKS FINE. JUST DO NOT LIKE THE 15 FT EXTENSION DESCRIPTION.."

Remington electric pole saw

By RRmodeler
from Vinton, VA
"This is a very good product, that only has 2 drawbacks, being electric you must drag an extension cord around, and for my use, the extension would be nicer if about 12" longer. Other then these 2 wants it works great and I would reccomend it to anyone who wants a power prunning saw."
