What Is a Pole Chainsaw?
Sooner or later, any gardener faces trimming trees since their crowns require care for growth and fruiting. Everyone who has ever pruned trees knows firsthand how awkward it may be to reach out for the highest branches. Would it not be easier to attach a saw to a long stick and do all the work from the ground? With your minimal effort, this can be done provided that you've got a pole chainsaw. A pole chainsaw is a tool for sawing that has a saw on one side and a handle on another one. The pole between two is quite long so that ladders and stools are not required. A pole chainsaw is surely a must-have tool for any gardener.
What Features to Compare
Currently, pole chainsaws become increasingly popular among gardeners. The manufacturers have produced a big variety of models. If you want to choose a proper model, you should consider several parameters.
First thing first, decide what type of pole chainsaw you need. There are electric, battery-powered and gas pole chainsaws available. When compared to gas models, electric pole chainsaws are more environmentally friendly and quieter in operation. They don't require refilling yet, generate enough power to cope with most garden jobs. Their operation is bound to a power outlet, though, so extension cords will be of need. Gas pole chainsaws are more powerful. Relying on high-performing gasoline motor, they can manage thick and dense wood and in a very short time. They are not as easy to maintain as electric tools and thus, more suitable for professionals. Battery-powered pole chainsaws are similar in operation to electric models but different in power supply. They are more mobile since they don't need electricity and can be used anywhere.
You should also pay attention to performance of pole chainsaw, determined by its power and bar length. Without knowing the bar length, you will have no idea of what jobs you'll be able to do in the garden. The longer the length is, the thicker the tree it can cope with. The power directly specifies the speed and efficiency of sawing. Manufacturers of battery-powered pole chainsaws usually measure their power in revolutions per minute whilst for electric and gas tools, they give the watts. Performance of a pole chainsaw is important for those who've got big gardens and who prunes trees all year round. However, if your place is small and you're only looking for something to deal with thin limbs and bushes, you can easily opt for a less performing tool with moderate power capacity.
Safety and usability
Since the pole chainsaws are hazardous tools, usability and safety are quite important. If you choose a high-power model, pay attention to the chain stopping system. This system will protect you from injury when chainsaw kicks back. The chain stopping is not so important for the low-power and battery-powered chainsaws but this feature is still nice to have. Usability is directly related to safety. Consider the weight and design of the tool. A pole chainsaw shouldn't be too lightweight and too heavy, otherwise, you may struggle to use it during a long period of work. Take a look at the handles. They should be rubberized and provide secure and comfortable grip. All these together greatly reduce injury risks.

The importance of tree pruning and trimming should not be underestimated. Plants shaping and deadwood removal are essential not only to improve their appearance but also to avoid the risk of fallen branches, promote their growth and maintain the health of trees. Hence, today, a pole chainsaw can be found in the arsenal of any keen gardener. Yet, it’s worth saying, that not all garden chainsaws are equally efficient. If you need a powerful tool to cut both twigs and thick branches, look no further. You’ll get all this with the Maverick pole chainsaw from Remington.
It’s a gas-powered model equipped with a 25 cc 2-stroke engine that delivers enough power to handle branches and limbs up to 7” thick. And the tool will take out much of a hard work. The saw starts well and thanks to a consistent power, it easily cuts through the wood under its own weight requiring not so much extra force from an operator. Meanwhile, a solid tool design with a steel pole and blade ensures the unit durability and long service life, and an automatic chain oiler contributes to the flawless cutting performance.
As powerful as it is, the Maverick will give you exceptional mobility. You are free to move around the garden without being limited by a power cord length or a battery running time.

On top of that, the package comes complete with a 7-foot extension pole. So, you will be able to prune branches and limbs as high as 12 feet depending on your own height.
