Let’s get real now, this pole saw does the job but not extended one. What I mean is that it’s not a tool made to be used “a lot”. It’s not heavy duty at all. Some people can’t even use the extension feature cause the locking mechanism is poorly designed and weak.
If you’re not really planning using the extension feature, it will work great though. The saw is OK quality and pruning tool works too. You can use the extension at some level, but you will probably break your pole locking mechanism if you use this pole saw fully extended.
Here’s a nice video review about this Fiskars 14 foot tree pruner pole saw:
And here’s another very good one, you’ll have a great look at what this tool can accomplish for you:
There is a way to partially solve that locking mechanism problem. Use the proper size socket wrench and tight the two bolts until the slip stops.
This said, for the price you can’t get better than this. It’s fairly cheap on price and it works if you have a few branches to take down. If you want to use this a lot and thoroughly, you should pay more to get a better quality tool.
A cool feature is that you can remove the saw to use only the pruner. This is easier to access branches more easily.
What I like about this one though is that it’s powerless… you can carry this everywhere and it will work. It’s lightweight as well so it’s easy to take it in the backwoods if you need it there.
