Husqvarna Pole Saw Puts All Others To Shame
The great thing about using pole saws is the ability to trim your trees without having to actually be in the trees. Their long extension lets us work safely on the ground or from a ladder. With all the great things these saws offer, there is also some bad. Because of the long reach, it is often hard to get any downward pressure on the saw blade to make a cut. My Father and I know all about this; just last month we were trying to cut a branch with no success.
In comes Husqvarna to the rescue with the introduction of their gas powered chainsaw on a stick. Their version of the pole saw consists of a chain saw at one end and a powerful 1.2 HP, 25 cc engine at the other. This setup provides great cutting power, along with good balance even when fully extended to its maximum length of 12-feet. In an age of gas power it seems almost silly to spend the time and effort to try and trim trees by hand anyways. The engine uses Husqvarna's E-Tech II technology that reduces the tools emissions to rates that are below current standards without compromising power. Also making an appearance is Smart Start, a feature that reduces pull cord effort by 40%.
The Husqvarna 327PT5S is intended for the likes of professional tree trimmers and orchard owners, and is unfortunately priced out of range for most homeowners with an MSRP of $500.
