I've looked at Echo and Stihl's telescoping pole pruners. Perfect, but $600. All I need is a cheapo Poulan type but one that has about the same reach as the Echo or Stihl. Seems to be no availability of used around here. I could rent, but would like the convenience of having it when the urge strikes and only work an hour or so at a time if I wish. Doesn't need to be telescoping, but the typical 6'-8' reach ones won't do.
