abunda_amazon_reviews Several people have commented on the weight of this saw extended out on the easily adjustable, 10 foot pole, but I can tell you from experience, that really isn't an issue if you use your thinking ability first. After buying this saw several months ago, I finally got the time and opportunity (and ambition) to go out and trim up my 30 year old, four-trunk, clustered oak tree in the front yard. The first thing I did was study the tree and where exactly I needed to make cuts - either to trim out dead branches, or uneven growth, or branches that could threaten my roof during a storm. After figuring out WHERE I wanted to make my cuts, I had to decide just HOW to make those cuts. I'm no weakling, but I don't have tremendous upper body strength either, so I had to figure out how I was going to make the cuts without harming the saw or myself in the process. Fortunately, this saw is well designed, with an offset cutting angle and an integrated hook to help hold it in place once the saw is positioned, so I simply lifted the saw almost vertically until the chain blade was on top of the limb I wanted to cut (MUCH easier than approaching the limb at a 30 to 45 degree angle). At that point I moved slightly away from being directly below the part of the limb coming down and pulled the trigger. Gravity is your friend when using this saw because the weight of the saw at the end of that 10 foot pole is largely supported by the limb being cut, and the natural cutting direction is assisted by gravity. The only challenge there was making undercuts on some the the heavier, thicker limbs before cutting them from above, but even that was manageable, thanks to that angled, self-lubricating cutting head. Once the limb is cut (VERY quickly done with this sharp cutting chain) it's a matter of sliding your hand(s) further up the pole (toward the center of the pole - better mechanical advantage or leverage) to prevent the saw from crashing to the ground. Once the tree limbs were on the ground, quickly converting this saw to a small, normal chainsaw was quite literally a snap, with no tools required. I found cutting the limbs out of the tree to be the easy part. After the limbs were cut from the tree came the hard part of cutting everything into four foot lengths for the trash company to haul it all off. I used bypass loppers for the smaller branches because that was much quicker, and it preserved the sharpness of the chainsaw for the thicker branches. I bought this saw on sale and it did a superb job, saving me about $250, PLUS THE COST OF THE SAW that I'd have spent hiring someone else to trim up my tree, and this way I got the tree trimmed up just as I wanted it to be (no severe cutting back and endangering the future health of the tree). This pole/chainsaw is well designed and very well made, and after my experience with using it, I will no longer dread using it in the future.

However with that said, it is a very good tool and it is nice that you can break it down to use as a hand chain saw. The problem I have with it is it is very heavy to handle with the saw on the pole. I'm not weak by any means but when you consider 15 or 20 pounds at the end of a 15ft. pole it can get hard to handle. Granted, I didn't just cut a limb or two, I was using it for a while. However, for my specific needs, I could have gotten by with a lesser and lighter pole saw. It is sturdy as I didn't take it easy on the tool and it held up.
