    Default Husqvarna Pole Saw

    Not exactly a chainsaw but kinda sorta is


    Well anyway I picked up a pole saw attachment for my Husqvarna 326 ldx and I'm very impressed with it so far, the thing works awesome. I was most impressed with the adjustable oiler...it's always the little things I can easily reach limbs that are 10' up and cut brush/limbs that are down real low to the ground without bending over all day and the 326 has plenty of power to pull the 12" chain

    That sounds just a little safer than me climbing up in my FEL bucket with my big saw

    I was using a ladder propped up against the tree....works good but gets a bit dicey when a big limb starts to fall.....I started thinking a pole saw might work better.

    I have the Echo PPT-280 with the optional 4 foot extension pole. This is so much safer than juggling a 15 pound chainsaw while standing on ladder.

    I have the Husqvarna Pole Saw and it is great. We have a lot of fir trees scattered about our property and the older limbs will slowly bend down and slap me in the face while I'm mowing or out horseback riding.

    I was recently surfing through local craigslist and saw a Cub Cadet pole saw for sale.....I finally did get with the seller and bought it.
    It looks great, must be 8 or 9 feet long! Haven't had a chance to use it yet....
    What do these things go for new? I paid 140 bucks......
