Default Battery pole saw

About this time last year there was a thread here about pole saws.
Some of you had mentioned that you were using one made by “Green works” and it was lithium battery powered. Im in the market for one & was curious if y’all were still happy with them or not?

I have a Milwaukee 18v pole saw that works really well. Not the brand that you were talking about but just giving you some info.

I’ll second this. I would look at the power tool brands as well. I run the dewalt weedeater, blower,hedge trimmer and 12” chainsaw and have been extremely pleased.

I have a Dewalt 20V that also uses the 60V battery. Works great, throws a little oil but haven't had any issues. Cuts some pretty good sized limbs too.

I bought a 18 volt Ryobi pole saw on a Black Friday sale for 67.00 and thought it would be worth the try for the money. I’ve been surprised at its cutting ability and reliability.

We have the 60v Greenworks pole saw along with hedge trimmer, blower and weed eater and I would recommend. Also have the Milwaukee that works fine, but the Greenworks is just a more heavy duty machine. Also have an EGo blower that is equivalent to the Greenworks.

Yep, still happy. I used mine this week as a matter of fact. My only complaint is that the oil reservoir is small for the amount that it uses. I guess that can’t be helped, after all it’s a pole saw. It performs above what I expected. I even own a Gree Works conventional electric saw. I use it a LOT more than I do my gas saws and it too, performs above expectations.

I bought the Greenworks pro 80v and it has a 10” bar. Works great. Haven’t used it much yet but I like it. It’s a bit on the heavy side as the 80v battery is fairly good size so if you plan on using for extended periods the weight might not be as desirable

Saw a review on You Tube & the only complaint was that the oil reservoir was small. He would have to fill it up twice for every battery charge (about 2 hours)

I bought one last year based on the thread recommending Green Works. I have used it a little around the house and it was impressive. Strong running and solidly made. I am confident it will do all I need and then some when trimming roads and stands and the lease.

Great deal. I still love mine. Only complaints is that the chain lube container isnt very large so you got to keep a close eye on it. Also the chain seems to pop off easier than most saws. With all that said everyone that uses mine ends up getting one.
