Pole saw
« on: October 01, 2012, 01:06:42 PM »
I've been trying to get all the limbs trimmed around the house and hay fields for several years and in a couple of different ways. First one involved a attachment on the front end loader on a tractor that used a free swinging bucket and a collage boy. I drove and he cut. Worked well for me, but he went and got a real job. So, I went and bought one of these http://www.stihlusa.com/products/pole-pruners/professional-pole-pruners/ht101/. Which will cut a lot more limbs than an old out of shape operator can handle.

 Mike, when you get caught up, bring that thing down here. I got 750+ trees that all need limbing.  :o ;D
