What is a pole saw used for? Branch saws are the perfect tool for trimming branches that are out of reach for a regular chainsaw. A long pole saw allows you to cut and prune tree branches that you might otherwise need a ladder for, providing that extra reach without having to climb up on something taller. This makes trimming tall shrubs with a pole pruner much safer than with a regular chainsaw or other garden tool. The Husqvarna 525PT5S is a telescopic tree pruner with a powerful petrol powered engine and excellent ergonomics. This Husqvarna pole saw is a strong contender as the best tree pruner for landscaping professionals.

Polesaws aren’t just for professional users, as this garden tool can be extremely useful in gardens of all shapes and sizes. What is the best polesaw for home use? The HTA 66 Stihl Pole Pruner is a lightweight and easy to manoeuvre battery pole saw, making it perfect for trimming trees and tall shrubs at home. The light weight of this saw makes it one of the best battery powered pole saws for domestic use and also occasional professional applications. Battery operated pole saws have a unique feature compared to their petrol powered counterparts; battery pole saws do not experience the same loss of power that may be experienced in a telescopic petrol pole saw, due to the nature of electric motors. This ensures a more predictable and reliable power delivery, making battery a popular choice for both domestic and commercial users.

What can a polesaw cut? A pole chain saw is not as powerful as a traditional chainsaw, as it would be very difficult to control an extendable pole saw with too much power. Pole pruning saws are best suited for branches under 150mm. While they may not be able to chop through thick logs like the Husqvarna 572 XP or other powerful chainsaw, cordless pole saws have the distinct advantage of being able to reach where those saws could not.

Are pole saws worth it? For home users, these pieces of kit offer the opportunity to prune your garden without having to climb up ladders with potentially dangerous machinery. It also means that you won’t need to call in a professional every time your shrubs become a little unruly. An extendable tree pruner can be seen as an investment into your own safety and convenience that can also save you money in the long run.

Manufactured by some of the most reputable brands in the industry, such as STIHL and Husqvarna, among the range of pole saws at Chelford Farm Supplies you’ll find quality cordless saws to suit every type of user. Even if you are a seasoned pole saw user, these powerful machines should be treated with the same caution and respect as any other chainsaw. Therefore it always recommended that PPE is worn during operation, and on account of the nature of trimming overhead branches, a chainsaw helmet is an absolute must.

The most reliable pole saw is a machine that is serviced and maintained correctly and regularly. Our Cheshire garden machinery service and repairs team are fully equipped to maintain, service and repair your pole saws ready for the season ahead.
