which pole saw

Recommended Posts

looking at stihl 103/133 at £600+

is there a cheaper alternative thats any good and I can get  spares for it when needed

and would it be better to get the 36cc or25cc  , I would want the telescopic though

I only use it for one or two days a year approximately 

have been looking at the second hand market but not found anything yet

thanks in advance

If only couple days a year 100% get battery.

I prefer battery pole saws to petrol anyways

I run milwaukee 18vdrills etc so it would have to fit that system if I went elect

I got the Dewalt 18v battery one, used it for a few hours now and seems really good. Fewer moving parts to go wrong as the brushless motor is up with the chain on the head. The handle end just has the battery and trigger. My only gripe is that the pole is a little more flexible than I would have liked, but I don't know if that's common to all pole saws. It cuts well.
