/ How would you fall this? #111

- The part of NY with high taxes
- L4760 & BX24
Yes - I bought one of the 80V batteries too with charger because the 80V work in 80V and 40V... and I'm hoping they come up with a snow blower like a "Snow Joe" I can use on my deck in the winter.
As for the saw - I'm impressed with the Harbor Freight Atlas 40V Pole Saw - as a $95 tool (not including the battery) - it's really good. The saw part of the pole is seeming well built, got a lot of torque and very controllable. It didn't leak bar oil all over everything after filling... unlike my Husky chainsaw that seems to leak even when there's nothing in it to leak... Chain needed tensioning after about 15 minutes... and was easy to tension and holds as set. The pole is "not" telescoping. I suppose someone might be annoyed to add another 3' you need to detach the handle pole from the saw pole and put a 3rd pole in there... but the plastic connectors and threaded tighteners work really well and the poles are indexed to line up real simple too.
My wife thougth I bought a "toy" - after watching me cutting for 15 minutes she was really impressed with how well it worked... so when a tool gets her 2 thumbs up - it's a good tool!
