Using a Pole Pruner for Tree Limb Trimming

Have you ever trimmed branches using a power pruner, or a pole chain saw as some call it? Contractor Mark Thomas of Thomas Homes demonstrates tree trimming using a power pruner to remove limbs to fell a tree in the chosen direction. The pole pruner shown is an extendable reach model. Mark describes his cuts along with features of the pruner. He also shows how to easily adjust chain tension.

As Mark points out, the proper safety gear and body stance are important habits for safe power pruner operation. Reading operational manuals for equipment new to you is also a good practice. If you have never operated a power pruner watch this video. Do you have a product review, operating tip or business strategy you wish to share with your fellow outdoor power equipment users?
