I was planing on buying a kombi chainsaw unit but it's $250. A pruning pole is $50 at home depot, actually, I'm not sure why I'm making this thread. I think I'll almost certainly buy the pruning pole, I don't have a lot of tree work, just a couple customers but I was thinking of putting an ad in to see if there was interest in this sort of work for some extra money. I'm trying to get some of my mowing customers to hire me to cut there low lying branches to make my life easier. I'm tempted to cut some of these branches for free just so I don't have to dodge them while mowing.
