Maxtra Gas Pole Saw / Chainsaw Review

Have you ever been around a person or people like your boss, or a big movie star and they just walk around like they know that they are big deal. And your standing there looking at them thinking this guy has that “it” factor. You can tell by the way they walk and carry themselves that they are in charge they have the power. Well with some people and things you can just tell.

When it comes to things it is super empowering to own something that makes you feel like a million bucks, or is so reliable that you can just trust it to always come through for you. Like when you buy a new car and you just feel that it was tailor made for you! Plus when you step on gas pedal you know it goes from zero to sixty in flash. I am not a big car guy, but I do get that feeling with my tools. When you just know you bought a tool that can tackle anything you throw at it with ease and that is going to make your life that much easier. Because although we like to get our hands in the dirt and are proud to keep our backyards in the best condition we all know that the best feeling is chilling and having a beer after the job is done. 

Well I got that feeling since the first time I saw the Maxtra Gas Pole Saw in action.

 It was just amazing how it cut through tough thick branches in a matter of seconds. I usually don’t endorse something giving it such high praise, but to me it was just that good. It cuts through branches or logs up to 10 inches thick that is almost double what many of the cheap products out there can handle. 

It’s got a 2 cycle air cooled engine that can be used with many other tools if the attachment to the pole fits. So you know you have power. The cutting length is 10 inches, so really you have a good frame and cutting surface to be able to cut properly from many angles that is the benefit that gives you. I know that there are a lot of options out there, but the reality is that this chain saw is just that much more powerful than all of the electric options out there, and obviously the manual ones.​

Plus for me the biggest difference that sets the Maxtra Gas Pole Saw ahead of all of the electrical options is that the Gas Pole Saw does not have a cord you need to carry around. So that means you can go around and cut everything you need to cut without a problem. This is great if you are working on a large area of land like a farm or even a very big backyard. So really many of the corded electric chain saws just can’t compete, because you would need to be carrying around a battery or something like that.

Yeah It Has A Lot Of Power So?

So what are the perks that the Maxtra Pole Saw has against it? Basically in most of the reviews and consumer comments on this the negatives really come with the products manual! So it's not that the tool does not work or have a problem in performance for the most part its that there are people out there that just couldn’t even get it started. That is a pretty shameful claim if you ask I would be a little ashamed to say I didn't even know how to start it and post that review online against a company. I do however get the point that these people are trying to make. So I am going to come out and really say it. If you have not used any of these types products before there is no reason for you to buy a 200 dollar gas powered chain saw. It’s even a safety hazard for you or anyone who is out there trying to help you out. These people are right it should come with better instructions and safety warnings. However I am not going to criticize the overall performance of a product based on what they were able to type up on a manual. Another warning I want to get out there because it is probably not alluded to in the manual is the only real knock that this product has. The plastic parts were not made with the same quality control as the rest of the product so just be extra careful while attaching the extensions and adjusting to the right length.

Is This a Good Unit to Buy?

This is one of the surest bets you are going to find in that price to performance ratio. I know it's not the most inexpensive purchase you will ever make, but in reality that is a very fair price for that type of performance.


Most of the pole saws that deliver a similar performance to this Maxtra have a much higher price tag. Like I stated earlier with the lack of instructions you will probably need to be a more skilled operator to be able to handle a product like this. It is actually perfect for people who have a large amount of land they need to keep well groomed. Honestly if you just have a one tree problem look for a cheaper option. This pole saw can tackle more heavy duty issues and do it consistently without the need to re charge since its fuel powered.It has all of the features that allow better handling a durable shoulder strap that since you see it you can tell it is made to help you control that amount of power. As well as an anti slip hand bar that allows you to find the grip that fits you best!

There are many videos of the Maxtra Gas Pole Saw in action out there that I can guarantee will convince you that this a good tool. For that and more reviews and features check out the posting on amazon

When it comes to tools it's all about finding the one that is the best fit for your needs and comfort level. In this case we also have to add working experience to that mix. However with this Maxtra you won’t go wrong in performance in my eyes.
