The 8 amp motor is the most powerful of any model we considered, and can handle limbs of moderate thickness, making it a good option for users who need to handle larger limbs when landscaping or chopping logs. For users who need both a pole saw and a handheld chainsaw, this model conveniently converts to both. The 8.8' telescoping pole offers an additional reach long enough for low-hanging limbs or trees of moderate height.
At almost 8.5 pounds, this model is heavier than most, and may be difficult to maneuver for some users.
The telescoping pole extends to 8.7', allowing users to make cuts on low-hanging limbs or trees of moderate height without a ladder. The 6.5 amp motor can handle limbs as thick as 7", a surprising amount of power for this lightweight, maneuverable model. Corded power and auto-oiling technology means never having to stop a job to oil the chain or refuel.
Designed for occasional household use, this unit may wear out quickly if used more frequently or on larger jobs.
The 8 amp motor cuts soft limbs up to 7.5" thick, a little less for harder limbs. For users who like to do their yard work with a little style, this model comes in an attractive camouflage color scheme. This model stands out for its adjustable saw, which allows users to place their saw at any angle while the pole is extended, providing them access to areas that would be difficult for other saws to reach.
The 7.2' reach of the telescoping pole is shorter than most models, so it may not fit the needs of users with taller trees.
Not only does the pole's extended reach allow users to reach limbs that other models cannot, but also the adjustable head allows them to place the saw at just the right angle to fit into smaller areas. This makes the 802E a good tool for users with a lot of high limbs and tight spots. This model uses corded power and automatic chain lubrication technology, allowing users to work long periods of time without stopping for chain oiling or gas.
The motor is not as powerful as some Sun Joe models, and users who need to cut through thicker limbs may find struggle slightly with this model.
The 8 amp motor offers cutting power that can handle soft limbs over 7 inches thick. The pole's 8.6 feet compares favorably with other models, and the 8 inch chain length meets the needs of most household users. The occasional large job will not wear out this machine as quickly as some other models, making it a good buy for households with more or larger trees than the average user. It is convertible from a pole saw to a chain saw.
Some users report the placement of the release trigger can cause pressing it accidentally when in use, resulting in the head detaching from the pole.

SWJ803E-CMO 8 Amp Multi-Angle Electric Pole Chain Saw
This model is more powerful than most, and the camouflage color of the saw looks great. However, our favorite feature is the adjustable angle of the saw, making it a good option for users who need to cut in tighter spaces than normal.
