Whoa… you wanted to take out a few branches right? So did I. So I went down to the local Home Depot, and bought a “pole saw.” You’ve seen them, the kind with a literal saw at the end of a pole. You will kill yourself from exhaustion on the first branch over two inches across. Now having had that experience, I was looking for something better. Something faster, safer, less exhausting. So here it is. The Black and Decker Pole Saw is perfect. I used this thing for hours. I'd recommend gettin two batteries if you have a lot to do, but it will run for a pretty good while before needing a charge. You can reach high into a tree, at least 14 feet, and saw off all the old dead branches that didn’t make it thru the winter in just a few seconds. I even cut a few that were close to 4 inches across. And it is not tiring either. You literally just lay the saw up against the branch you want gone, and press the trigger. Zoom, it spins up, and starts chewing. You do need to apply chain oil every now and then, and I did actually have one occasion to knock the chain off the sprockets, but it was really easy to put back on. I got one of these for my 72 year old father, and he really loves it. My mother loves that it keeps him a safe distance from the saw. I highly recommend this product.
