Been battling limb creep on many of my interior roads so i decided it was time for a pole saw that used something other than elbow grease for power. I ended up buying the Oregon saw. Put it to use for the 1st time this past Saturday. This thing is a beast of a saw. Wore me out before I wore battery out. One day's use is no indication of what extended use over several years will be so take this for what it's worth. If this thing holds up over and extended period like it did on 1st day of use then it's a winner. Really like it and it is one cutting machine. I'll post more as I use it more. Here's a few pics from Saturday starting with the model I purchased from Amazon.
