Users can reach a reasonable range with this saw.
This review is bound to help you look critically at what this saw has to offer and if it suits your need or not.
We can say that craftsman has produced yet again, another robust tool. We notice an issue, though. The pole extension on this saw is not a solid as the other parts.
Saw has an impressive height of 14 Ft, such that users can reach a reasonable distance. However, when fully assembled, the saw is massive, and it can be shaky if you have not mastered it. Also, users may grapple with balance, with the first few uses, especially when the saw is fully assembled.
The design is pretty simple and basic, just like other regular Pole saws. The angled head makes cutting more comfortable, giving precise cuts. Another added feature that offers the saw an edge in the market is the branch hook that aids the removal leaves and loose branches.
This saw has a robust and sturdy 6" blade made of hardened steel and the teeth that come Sharp and allow you to slice limbs away easily. It can efficiently deal with sturdy woods of 4 to 6-inch range. Another sweet thing is that the saw's head is angled so the blade can rotate in different directions and, of course, makes cutting more comfortable and faster.
With its soft and super comfy grip, this saw handle allows users a comfortable and firm grasp, ensuring maximum maneuverability. Its handle is also a form of ant vibration, limiting the wave that will be felt by users while the saw is running.
