This Husqvarna pole saw (327PT5S) is the type of tool that will quickly become your best friend if you do a lot of pruning from a distance. Extendable up to an impressive 13 feet, this 24.5cc pole saw will cut through branches like butter. Ideal for cutting branches up to 8-inches in diameter; although you can cut larger branches, but it will take you more time.
The Handy Husqvarna Pole Saw
I like the fact that it comes with a safety harness to reduce the stress on your arms as your cutting. This is a fairly heavy pole saw at 31 pounds so the included harness is a nice added bonus. Also, it prevents you from overextending your reach and encourages optimal safety operating procedures. Although, you don’t have to use it if you don’t want. The choice is ultimately yours.
Pruning trees is challenging work and is also tough on your body as it may put you in awkward and unnatural working positions. This is a professional pole saw designed to help you work in an ergonomic and efficient manner. Yes, you can buy cheaper pole saws but cheaper doesn’t mean better. Husqvarna is one of the top chainsaw manufacturers in the world — if not the very best — and this pole saw is a great example of their commitment to quality.
Also, if you purchase this pole saw with three cans of Husqvarna pre-mix fuel and register your product online, your warranty will be extended from 2 years to 4 years. That seems to be a nice bonus from Husqvarna. Four years is an excellent time frame for a warranty. Remember you have to buy 3 cans of the Husqvarna pre-mix fuel.
Watch this Husqvarna pole saw up close and personal. You can see for yourself how well-made and sturdy it is.
