A pole saw comes in handy more often than you might think - we use it often to reach branches that we can’t quite get to from the ladder, or the ground. Silky makes great saws and this one is ultra lightweight (so not as much strain on your neck and shoulders) and has a telescoping pole to extend your reach.
The telescopic design has two locking systems – a spring loaded locking button and friction clamps which work in tandem to ensure a strong and stable pole extension. The aluminum alloy pole is oval shaped and has a pole-end shock absorber and a comfortable rubberised over-grip, all of which ensures a good strong grip and control.
Zubat blades cannot be re-sharpened due to the use of electro-impulse hardening in the manufacturing process. Replacement blades are available and only require the removal of two bolts to effect the blade change. A black rigid-plastic blade guard is included, which locks onto the blade for protection during transport.
