Has anyone used the power pruner 5' extention on their 2400 model? Does it get too heavy after a short time of usage? Is it a pain to install/remove? Any other comments appreciated.

Yes, it gets heavy when extended all the way out.No, its not hard to add the extension. The worst part is that you are working straigth up most of the time and the cut off material wants to slide down the pole into your face and arms.Its hard to move out of the way and still hang onto the pruner. I bought a hedge trimmer attachment for mine last summer.Its also very heavy but a lot faster and safer than climbing a tall step lader and trying to reach out with a hedge trimmer.I would be lost with out my pole pruner.
