Slipshod,
Where's the gas-power pole trimming saw! I am thinking about buying one of those myself but the wife is giving me chin music about. Irony is, she uses the manual pole pruner far more than I do.

Also, I was thinking about chain saw safety when I read and posted in the tractor safety forum you moderate. In my mind, a chain saw has to be one of the most inherently dangerous pieces of equipment one can use short of defusing claymor mines. I'm sure, a whole lot of we tractor lovers have large treed properties. Where's there's lots of tree there usually is one or more chain saws so you might want to include a power tool thread or two in the safety forum.

saw safety

Dear Tisenberg,
You say you have had some close calls with chain saws. Well get your butt over to the safety forum and tell us about them.

pole saw

I have the Stihl pole saw....even when I have it adjusted out to the maximum length, I feel in total control of it! But then again, I am 6'3" and 240...but my wife uses it and she has never mentioned it being awkward or anything. It has been a great addition to the farm, just cut the high limbs and pick them up later...we tried every other way before I broke down and spent the $500+ bucks , but I dont regret it one bit now! We did the standing on the ladder in the trailer, stand up in the loader bucket and hope you dont fall out, but nothing is a quick and easy as the pole saw!
