Rated 4 out of 5Â by Macket Titan 750W Pole Pruner
I would have given this product 5 stars as I was really impressed with its performance and quality,especially for the price. However Screwfix inform me that spare parts are not available from them. The instruction manual states that spare parts are obtainable by quoting the part number, however, no parts list is available neither is there an address for a parts supplier.
(Saw chains are apparently available on line).
It made short work of my neighbours' overhanging trees so not all bad news.

I have Willow Trees close to garden wall that had become to tall and were catching to much wind. They would probably get damaged this winter, or cause damage. This Titan Pole Saw cut through 3 to 4 Inch branches with Ease, and allowed me good reach ( bit heavy for the Missus though ) so no messing around with Ladder.
Well worth the Money against getting somebody in or trying to hire one or something similar.
Only done one job with it so gave a 4 for reliability.
Don't forget to buy the Oil with it

Rated 5 out of 5Â by ColinWR5 Good value purchase
Purchased this on Monday & used it to prune a large apple tree on Tuesday! A good solid piece of equipment that was easy to assemble and use, and I'm a pensioner.Very happy so far with this purchase but too early to comment about reliability.Just note that you need chain oil as well since this is not included.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Squeeze Don't forget the oil!
I was a little nervous of getting a chainsaw and didn't want the hassle of petrol. This is the perfect answer. The chain is a good distance away so danger is minimal and works brilliantly with no fuss. Two pieces of advice 1) read the manual carefully, assembly is easy but take care getting the chain tension correct - otherwise it falls off. 2) Most importantly buy chain saw oil, otherwise you're going back to get some (I got No Nonsense 1Ltr Chainsaw Oil - works a treat). I couldn't find this mentioned anywhere on the box, website or catalog. This is one of those items Screwfix should add for upselling!
I have so far used it for up to 2 inch branches I couldn't otherwise reach and a bit of brush clearing (probably shouldn't, but I took care not to hit the floor). Works perfectly, highly recommended!
