Topping our list of the best pole saws is this 40V Cordless Pole Saw by Greenworks. This battery-powered pole saw comes with a 3-piece aluminum shaft that’s easy to assemble into a 9ft long tool. Depending on your height, this will allow you to prune tree limbs up to 15ft high, using the 8” bar and chain. There’s also an automatic oiler so the chain will remain lubricated without manual maintenance (you just need to top it up if it’s running low).
Made from high quality steel, this cordless pole saw is well balanced and easy to use. The handle is weighted to help with muscle fatigue, and the cushioned grip offers additional comfort – although the position of the safety catch might make your thumb sore over time. It can be purchased with or without a battery, and users report that the battery life is reasonable, with many saying they tired long before the power ran low (you’ll probably get just over an hour of continuous use). The ease of operation and the instant start/stop feature are also highly praised by reviewers.
