Pruning tree branches is the most tedious saw job. To cut shrubs, bush, or something else, you can use other necessary tools. A typical scenario is using a lawnmower or simple yard cleaning machine.
But it is difficult to prune thick branches or vines on a tree over six feet (1.8 m). In the past, there have been many accidents when using ladders. Today, professionals prefer pole saw to trim branches or shape that height or even more.
That’s because of the extended capacity of a pole saw. As is the case with most saws, and the name is a good indication of it. Here, it certainly speaks for itself. The pole saw is the saw which the manufacturers set at the end of a pole.
You can use it this way, but the saw’s obvious use is to cut things that a regular hand saw cannot cut. The pole saw extends about 10 to 20 feet. The most exact shape for your hand with a saw is a long pole, which can often reach 10 to 20 feet in height, plus a horizontal blade such as a blade at the end, generally with a slight curvature.
As you may have guessed, this type of saw moves by moving the saw blade back and forth over the object with your hand, just like any other hand except the end of the stick. It’s pretty primitive but still handy.
Pole saws with more advanced power sources (i.e., those that do not operate by hand) have a different type of saw. Usually, this is a small chainsaw blade that you can adjust at different angles. This case, of course, includes a trigger system that controls the speed of the blade.
Regardless of the saw’s power source and characteristics, the overall design and shape remain the same, making it one of the simplest saws, as well as one of the most versatile and often surprising shapes.
