    Do you know where I can find a good pole saw I need it to hedge my trees, and small bushes and etc. I also may use it to cut down trees in high places. Just need a good pole saw, you know the one with the lonng pole with the saw on the end. It can be online or a local store I just need it for personal use. Thanks and God Bless.

    yep. The Power Pruner by Echo. It is by far the most user friendly, easiest one to use. The loop handle is a blessing over the straight pole trigger like the others have.

    So this is good for trimming hedges right? Like boxwoods or etc? An what else do you recommend for trimming hedges?

    Nnnnnnnnno. Not the same thing. You may be looking for a combination tool. there are power units that are about the length of string trimmers, and there are power units that are a tad bit shorter. Botgh will accept a chainsaw head, and a hedgetrimmer head. The PowerPruner is a dedicated extendable chainsaw. It would be too heavy for trimming shrubs with. The extended hedgetrimmers (like about 5 ft. long) ARE great, though.

    I don't have an ECHO power pruner yet. But is on my must have list. Its the best one available.

    I have the split shaft system that echo makes. The 90 degree adjustable hedge trimmer attachment is worth every penny. A little heavy, but is awesome.

    So the powerpruner isn't good for shrubs, or for trimming hedges?
