Pole Saws are one of the best ways to trim, cut and prune especially tall trees and plants that may be getting a little long. They allow people to make better and cleaner cuts that ultimately will make your landscaping experience a more pleasant one. The first thing you have to decide while going out and buying one though is not necessarily how big or tall it needs to be, but what type of tool you want to purchase.
There are three main categories in this department. A manual pole saw, which helps you reach higher places, but will most likely demand a bigger effort from you for it to work properly. The second category is gas powered pole saws. These are typically the saws that allow you to cut through the toughest trees, but ultimately emit a lot of harmful fumes to the environment. The third and final category is going green with electric saws!
These saws usually don’t have the overall power of the gas powered ones, but they are for the most part lighter, safer and easier to use. We want to take the time to give you our top 5 electric pole saws, so you can keep them in mind the next time you shop for a pole saw!
