    1.5 HP Electric Pole Saw

    I have a pole saw that I purchased at HF several years back. It extends to 12ft. I seldom use it but it has worked without fail each time that I have. They make gas powered ones but $$$ more than electric.
    Those look good, thank you.

    I see TSC is selling two-cycle, 8" Poulan pole saws for $150 this Friday.

    I have one and use it a fair bit. The biggest ive cut is maybe 12", but it took a while. Its tough on the hands unless you make some kind of handle. You also want to cut off to the side to undercut the branch a bit or it snaps offf a big chunk n the bottom of the cut. One word to the wise - be very careful where you stand. The easiest cutting position is right under what you're cutting so it can be dangerous. Also invest in some kind of weight or line for throwing and you'll save a lot of frustration.

    It may well work, but I guarantee that you will have stronger arms when you are done.

    Exactly...it will work, but HE will work harder still. I've done it, but I suggest having a friend help, perhaps a young friend.
    Which is bigger?: a) $100 per month since the Big Bang or b) the US National Debt.
