Nothing beats a gas-powered saw in terms of cutting power, and the 25cc motor on this model makes quick work of average cutting jobs, and is up to the challenge of larger ones. The detachable saw head even has the power to take down medium-sized trees if necessary. For a gas model, the saw runs noticeably clean. This unit also features QuickStart technology for easy pull starts.
While it meets the needs of most users, the 7' pole is shorter than most models, so users with branches that are higher than normal may need to purchase a longer pole separately.
Optimal power for household tree trimming tasks. Handles limbs of moderate thickness, and the detachable head converts this model to a chainsaw for chopping up downed limbs. The extended 10" chain cuts the time to complete larger jobs. The pole extends up to 10', and the ergonomic grip helps control the unit when fully extended. Corded power source allows users to keep working without needing to stop for recharging or refueling.
Some users report the chain may begin to detach if this model is used frequently for larger-sized jobs.
This pole saw can reach as high as 15' overhead for users who can control the saw at that distance, making it the best Remington model for very high cutting jobs. The 8 amp motor is surprisingly powerful, and handles small to medium-sized limbs or logs. The head detaches for use as a chainsaw. This model also includes a 10" extended chain and a comfort grip for easy maneuverability.
When fully extended, the saw becomes difficult to maneuver for those with limited upper body strength.
Because it is cordless, this unit is easier to maneuver than other models. Head adjusts into 7 positions, which allows it to cut in tight or hard to reach spaces. The 40 volt motor provides enough power for most household cutting and trimming jobs. The 2.5 Ah battery can last over an hour on a full charge during smaller jobs, slightly less on bigger jobs with more cutting required. At just over 10 pounds, this is one of Remingtons lightest saws, another nice feature for users who need to be able to maneuver into tough spots.
Some users report the unit may leak oil slightly during storage.
8 amp corded model. Features a detachable head, which allows users to convert from pole saw to chain saw. 10' reach telescoping pole. Extended 10" chain. Slightly more powerful than some comparable Remington Models.
This one does not include the improved ergonomic grip of some other Remington models, so it may be more difficult for some users to control comfortably. This model is a little heavy for smaller users, making it difficult to control for some when the pole is fully extended.
