If you have a tall tree that requires some work, you have two options-hire a professional, or invest in professional tools and learn to maintain it yourself. If you choose the former, go get a phone book. If you want to take care of it yourself, you need some tools, especially a bar saw.
What is a telescopic pole saw?
The pole saw-sometimes called the pole trimmer-is essentially a mini chain saw on a retractable pole. Saws usually have only six to eight inches of cutting area and are used to cut branches rather than tree trunks. Extension rods can usually reach 7 to 9 feet, but some can reach 10.5 feet.
What should I look for in a chainsaw?
You will want to try to find a good power-to-weight ratio. Using a pole saw can sometimes be laborious, because you have to support a guide device at high altitude. Although a 14-pound saw may not sound heavy, if you have to take it out of your body for a while, it will start to feel very heavy.
More and more pole saws are appearing as electric models because they have the same cutting capabilities, but have lower manufacturing and operating costs than gas-powered models. They are also cheaper and easier to maintain, making them a favorite of homeowners. If you have a small yard, choose a corded model-no battery pack or other adaptation equipment is required, making it the lightest of all pole saws. However, their influence is limited. If you need to cut more than 50-100 feet from an available socket, you need to choose a cordless electric model. In both cases, look for something in the 8 amp range for optimal energy use.
If you have a lot of trees to hit, you may need to use a gas saw. Even the best cordless chainsaw can only be used for about an hour between charges. For pneumatic saws, look for a saw in the range of 32cc-34cc to cut branches quickly.
Tips and tricks for using pole saws
Just like full-size chainsaws, chainsaws require proper precautions and proper usage in order to operate safely and effectively.
Check the area-make sure the saw and what you are cutting are away from the power cord or other property that may be damaged. In addition, make sure they are located around areas where you may stand and move, and there is no danger of tripping.
Watch out for the weather-if there is wind or it may rain, you should not operate our pole saws.
Know the condition of the tree-dead branches, loose bark, and decaying areas will cause your pole saw to react differently, making it faster, slower or more susceptible to recoil.
Two feet, two hands-maintain a good foundation, make sure your feet are firmly on the ground and maintain a balance between them. Do not leave your feet off the ground when the saw is running. In addition, always keep your hands on the electric pole saw.
By choosing the right saw and following these tips and tricks, you can get the best experience while using the chainsaw. If used properly, a pole saw can be a very convenient tool, but if it is not handled carefully, it can be dangerous.
Of course, to organize your garden better, you may also need a power grass trimmer.
