Which Silky saw / pole lopper?

Recommended Posts

I need to clear some wires running through trees about 20ft up.

 

Think I need a silky-type pole saw for the larger limbs with a rope-operated secateurs to cut the smaller stuff that's too bouncy to saw; hopefully one tool with both attachments.

 

Any suggestions gratefully received.

 

TIA :001_smile:

Stein do a very reasonable pole set with pruners and saw blade. Check F R Jones

FR Jones say Steiner kit is interchangeable with Jameson.

 

Think I'm gonna get the following Stein kit:

Stein Pole kit 2 (pruner double pulley & rope, 2x6ft poles)

Extra 6ft pole

Saw head + 390mm blade

Total £164.05 ex vat

 

Sound sensible?

That's what I have. Good kit. Jameson kit fits perfectly, Stein have basically copied it exactly.

 

I have the big shot equivalent too but not really used it much.

Got my Stein kit as above from FR Jones - very good service.

 

Cleared about 400yds of phone line, worked a treat. :thumbup1:

 

With 3x6ft poles can reach to 20ft, if a bit wobbly. Once it's on the branch no problem sawing or pruning. Both saw and pruner (secateurs) are essential. Pruners good for 2" brush and saw whips through branches 3"-4" maybe more.

 

One point, I managed to avoid getting the saw trapped in a partially cut branch, but imagine it could happen :sad:

Since one can't do an undercut, is there a technique to ensure that doesn't happen?

 

Overall, good kit and good advice - thanks :thumbup:

Nice, up to 3 poles it works a treat it's when you got 4 poles and your at the top of A frames to get a two foot whip that's just sticking out but it's really anoying you. It gets pretty wobbly then :biggrin:
