for February 2024

MOOZ Themes editors select recommendations independently, so your purchase through our link may earn us a commission.

Pole saws, also known as pole pruners, are an important tool for pruning trees, shrubs and other vegetation. Unlike chainsaws, which require the user to stand and work, pole saws allow the user to stand or walk around while cutting. Plus, pole saws are safer for close to ground level work.

When evaluating pole saws, our testers evaluate performance factors like sawing speed, blade quality, and ergonomics, as well as ease of use, such as how easy it is for the consumer to adjust the saw and adjust the cutting height. We also look at safety features, such as how the saw is powered.

Here are the best pole saws of 2022, according to MOOZ Themes Reviews testing and consumer reviews.

The extension pole is 6 feet, which is long enough for most pruning jobs, and the base pole is 6 feet, which is long enough for most pruning jobs. The pruner has an adjustable cutting length from 1-1/4 inches to 4-1/2 inches, so it may be a bit too small for smaller branches.

The saw is heavy, but this doesn't pose a problem as long as you are comfortable with lifting the tool, and the weight of the saw helps provide stability as you cut.

Soply Manual Pole Saw 26 Extendable Foot with 2-Foot Saw Blade

by Soply

he foam grip increases friction to improve trimming efficiency, features shock absorption while increasing comfort. Efficient and comfortable, our telescopic pole saw provides users with the best sense of use.

We like the pole saw's size, which makes it easy to reach branches high up on the tree. The pole saw is also light and durable, and it's easy to use, thanks to an ergonomic handle. However, we wish the pole saw had a longer reach. The saw's blade is sharp, and it did the job quickly, but it's small, so it's hard to get a clean cut. The saw is also slow to cut, so cleaning the cut after pruning is a hassle. We also have a few concerns about the saw's durability. The saw's handle is made of plastic, and it's stiff, which means the saw is difficult to hold. The saw is also somewhat expensive compared to similar pole saws, and the saw's plastic handle is prone to cracking.

While chainsaws remain the most well-known tools for tree care, they're also the most dangerous. Chainsaws require considerable skill and practice to use safely, and there's the risk of serious injury if they're not handled properly. In addition, a chainsaw's reach is limited to the length of its chain, so longer trees can be a problem. Manual pole saws are a safer, easier-to-use alternative. They're lightweight, compact, and easy to throw in the trunk of a car. A good manual pole saw is also easy to set up, as it essentially consists of a handle and an arm that telescopes out to form a blade. The arm can slide along the handle, allowing it to be extended or shortened as needed. Our top pick, the 15-foot Husqvarna HL-55, is lightweight, easy to use, and has a long reach. It has a blade that can be adjusted for 6 different positions, ranging from 5 to 16 feet, so it can be used to cut branches of all sizes. The blade is sharp enough to cut through most tree limbs, and the sharp teeth on the front of the blade also make it easier to push the saw through the branches. The blade is metal, so it won't bend or break if a branch is too thick, and the handles are sturdy, so they won't break under pressure.
