Why Use a Pole Pruner?
There are many reasons to use a pole pruner for your cutting uses. It's an incredible tool that takes away many climbing jobs.
If you have tall trees in your backyard, a pole pruner can help you reach the high branches with precision. Although they might have a hard time slicing through thicker branches, these extension poles work well for trimming purposes.
A pole pruner is excellent for getting those hard-to-reach branches in a tree. It reduces the climbing you have to do to reach the tallest spots in a tree. Consider a pole saw if you have places you can't touch in your yard.
Picking Out the Perfect Pole Pruner
Depending on your needs, you may have trouble picking out the right pole pruner. There are a number of different options on the market today, and each will affect your tree trimming routine in a unique way. If you have to cut branches and you don't know what you're looking for, keep these things in mind.
Power or Manual Pruners
If you're having to cut through thick branches, you may need to pick up a power pole pruner rather than a manual pruner. The cutting head is what determines this. Gas powered models will have a way to connect the saw to the pole itself, allowing you to operate them. Gas powered pole saws aren't the only powered models available, though. With advancements in technology, electric pole saws have become more common. These cordless pole pruners are light and easy to use.
However, not even tough branches can stand up to sharp, professional pole pruners. They're used with a pull stroke, and can help you cut branches in hard to reach places with ease. Sharp blades on a manual pruner are still a very viable option.
Choosing Your Pole Pruner Length
When you choose your pole pruner's length, you want to choose something that makes quick work out of the branches you can't reach. Some models offer telescoping poles, while others are a fixed length. Now, keep in mind, companies advertise maximum reach, not maximum length. Maximum reach is the length that the pole saw will reach when it's fully extended and it's held in your hand. You'll have to make sure that the figure lines up with your actual maximum reach.
Choosing the Blade Length
Blade length plays a lot into how much you can actually cut with your pole pruner. A pole pruner with a smaller blade may only be able to handle small branches, and are probably ideal for small yards. If you're pruning a large tree from the ground, however, you may need a longer blade. The longer the blade on the pole pruner, the larger the branches you can tackle!
The material that your pole pruner's handle is made from is important. Some are made from wood, others are made from steel. Fiberglass poles are also an excellent option! The weight of a tool comes into play when it comes to using it, and the handle material is a big part of the tool's weight. Make sure you pick the right handle material for your pruner.
