Put the ladder away, with the Silky 16ft extension pole saw, cutting those branches higher in the tree - no problem. Silky pole saws, the choice of professionals, are the best selling pole saws the world over.
This pole saw extends from its 7ft 9in closed length to a whopping 16ft. Its aluminum pole is oval-shaped providing better control of the blade direction and giving it greater strength and rigidity. The extensions have 2 locking systems (spring loaded locking pins and friction clamps) to ensure that all your energy is transferred to the saw blade, even at the highest levels. You'll be in full control of this pole saw with its large comfortable rubberized grip.
The cutting blade has a full 15in cutting length and razor sharp teeth with 4 cutting angles for faster, more efficient cutting strokes. Blade features an upper and a lower sickle. The upper sickle allows you to cut vines and keeps the blade from coming off the branch. The lower sickle can be used to undercut bark.
Comes with a heavy duty rigid plastic sheath for safety.

Handsome object, nice blade - but the extensions locks are plastic and of " pressure lever " design. No simple mechanical locks that will last a life time. Aluminum - so that electrical wires become a worry. Worst of all no " quick pruner " knife - strictly a saw blade cut. The item was advertised as the top of the line and the price followed suit. For the money one could buy three tools from the box store and had clipper function as well. Thought I would support a local enterprise rather than China. Short of that it is a quality construction - time will tell on the locking mechanisms.

If you buy this saw, and you should, you'll find yourself looking for things to prune. It's that well made. There's no play at all until you reach full extension and even then there's more than enough stability to get things done.
