Today I encountered some rather large shrubs that my long shaft echo trimmers could not cut. I was standing on a ladder reaching as far as I could and quickly saw they would not work. What do you folks use on these kinds of bushes? I thought about trying a pole saw but I have never had a use for one until now. I cant use a chainsaw because they are to tall for me to reach safely. The clint wanted them cut down to about 8 feet and they are over 18 feet right now and about 6 feet wide. Will a pole saw do the trick and what is a good one. Im sorta shying away from echo since the last 2 new pieces of equipment have not been real good. BTW, hot days are NOT a good time for this kind of work, having to do trimming after about 6:30 PM or so, and its still over 90 then.
