Pole saw (with additional cable shears) with telescopic pole

A pole saw is a pruning saw with a long handle, also known as telescopic handle can be designed, for pruning of trees and shrubs in the upper crown region.

It can be used to trim crown areas that are otherwise not accessible or that cannot be reached from a ladder without using a ladder . A pole saw, for example, can be used for quick and effective pruning . The saw blades are often provided with push or pull hooks to support the cut and to be able to remove the loose branches from the crown.

The classic version, which is common in Europe, has a small tooth pitch to prevent tilting and works on thrust, as the branch bends less when the saw thrust. On some models, the saw blade can be brought into different angular positions. In recent years, Japanese saws that work on pulls have also been increasingly used as pole saws. The high work performance, as well as the very good quality of the cut and thus the better wound healing, speak for this type of saw.

Motor-driven saws rod is called pruners . This is similar to the normal chainsaw , but between the saw bar and the motor there is a longer rod with a drive shaft running inside, so that the heavy motor of the machine is ergonomically positioned close to the operator.
