When I woke up this morning, I set out to find the longest pole saw – I needed to find something that could not only reach high up in the air, but also something that was safe and built to last. Yes, you can call me picky, but I want only the best for my readers.
I came across a pole saw from Remington, and after reading all about it and comparing the other pole saws in the “longest pole saw” category, I decided that I had to go for Remington. Remington is a company that is well known for creating power tools that are easy to use and reliable.
Their outdoor electric saws are capable of taking on almost any task – from a little bit of tree trimming to taming that overgrown backyard. The first products from Remington were sold almost a century ago, and just like before, their tools are designed to be durable, efficient, and deliver just the right amount of power to get the job done.
Without further ado, I present to you the Remington RM1035P Ranger II – the longest pole saw that is built to last!
Who is the Remington RM1-35P Ranger II Suitable for?
Since I have labeled this power saw “the longest pole saw,” then I would say the Ranger II is suitable for those that are tired of having to stand up on top of a ladder (that’s not exactly safe) just to reach those unpleasant tree limbs.
The Ranger II is a 2-in-1, which is another reason I chose this pole saw today. Once you’re done cutting those hard to reach limbs, the pole saw can easily transform into a chainsaw so that you can cut the limbs into pieces. Simply by pushing a button, you can change the pole saw into a chainsaw, and you don’t even have to use any tools to do it.
To show you how easy it is to convert the pole saw into a chainsaw, here’s step by step instructions:
Step 1: Start out by placing the pole saw on a flat surface.
Step 2: Take the motor assembly and disconnect it from the pole saw.
Step 3: Take the handle off of the pole.
Step 4: Take the handle and put it on the motor assembly.
Now, you have an electric chain saw that you can use.
Wrap Around Handle
The pole saw has a nice full wrap handle. This is a great feature, because it makes it easy to maneuver when you’re working.
Cord and Hand Guard
The cord and hand-guard are located at the bottom of the pole. This means that you won’t have to worry as much about the snags when you’re using the pole saw.
An Angled Power Head
Another feature I was looking for in the longest pole saw is an angled power head. Mind you, this is a special feature, because most pole saws don’t have an angled power head. I like the angled feature because while cutting, it lets gravity provide the power – this is definitely something you want in a long pole saw.
When looking for a good pole saw or chain saw, I recommend going for something that is self-lubricating. Otherwise, you’ll have to stop what you’re doing and push buttons in order to lubricate the bar and chains. With this model, you don’t have to worry about any of that, because it self-lubricates itself.
With the low-kick back 10-inch bar and chain, you will be able to cut through those branches without worrying so much about the kickback. This is all because of the special design on the bar and chain.
The 8-amp motor is light, but don’t let this fool you, because it is actually quite powerful. It’s powerful enough to be able to cut through most branches in your backyard.
The biggest reason I chose the Ranger II is because of how far it can be adjusted. The extendable 10-inch aluminum pole will make it so easy for you to get to those hard to reach limbs, and most of all, you won’t have to stand on a ladder. With this extendable pole saw, you will be able to trim tree limbs that are up to 15-feet in the air. There’s nice flip and lock clamps that will make sure the saw is secure, so you don’t have to worry about that.
Chain Tension Adjustment
Before and during use, I recommend checking the chain tension. Whenever you notice the flats on the saw sagging off of the bar, it is time to adjust the tension. With the Ranger II, adjusting the tension is fairly easy.
Step 1: In order to loosen the bar cover, turn the bar knob counterclockwise. When you do this, you don’t have to remove the bar cover.
Step 2: As you’re holding the guide bar tip in the air, take the chain-tensioning ring and turn it clockwise. If you tighten the chain too much, all you have to do is slightly turn the ring counter-clockwise.
Step 3: When you have found the best chain tension, make sure you keep the guide bar tip in the air as you are turning the bar knob clockwise in order to make sure the bar cover is secure.
All in all, I believe the Remington RM1035P Ranger II is the best longest pole saw currently on the market. The extendable 10-foot pole makes is so that you can reach limbs up to 15-feet, and the instant start 8-amp motor allows you to cut through small to medium sized branches without a whole lot of work.
In the end, once you’re done removing the branches from above, you can quickly disconnect the pole so that you can use the saw as a chainsaw to cut through the limbs and make them a manageable size.
