Well I finally got to use the pole saw attachment on the PAS. I was so impressed... I couldn't't believe it! I was without my chainsaw (wasn't planing on cutting) and had a nice lady come up to me and ask if I could look at her hedges for an estimate on removal. Turned out they were a row of 6 Hemlocks that had been growing together for about 20yrs and were 8ft tall...lol... Long story short, I fired up the PAS and prepared for a binding, jerky, slow, and aggravating cut. I was through the first 6in trunk before I could turn the negative thoughts off!!!! The PAS never bound, kicked or asked for a break. Great, great unit. I think I would use it again over the regular saw just for the great reach and not having to limb anything to get to the trunk. Customer was more then satisfied at the quick clean work and I had $200 in my pocket in 1 hr. Nice. Any similar results?
