The Forester Pole Saw has been designed to offer a product that sits neatly between the better known Zubat and Hayauchi Pole Saw ranges. Like the Zubat Pole Saw, it is a lightweight, state of the art, telescopic pole saw with an oval shaped aluminium alloy pole which offers both strength and precise control. However, it offers a longer and stronger blade than the Zubat Pole Saw and with two extension poles, it can prune at greater heights. Overall it is lighter than the Hayauchi Pole Saw but offers a similar blade length.
This is another very versatile product which can be used in a wide range of circumstances including trimming, pruning, gardening, forestry and arboriculture.
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.
These lightweight pole saws can be used from the ground or climbed with to gain greater pruning range without the use of heavier, more cumbersome equipment. The bright red design makes them clearly visible while the extension poles are shorter than some other models making this compact telescopic pole saw easier to transport and store.
It is designed with two extension poles and comes in 2 different sizes :-
- Forester 3000 offering an extension range of 1.7 – 3.0m.
- Forester 4500 offering an extension range of 2.2 – 4.5m.
The saw has a curved 380mm blade with a standard teeth ratio of 7.5 teeth per 30mm.
A red rigid-plastic blade guard is included, which locks onto the blade for extra protection. The base poles have pole-end shock absorbers and a comfortable rubberised over-grip which ensures good hold and control.
Forester Pole Saw blades cannot be re-sharpened due to the use of electro-impulse hardening in the manufacturing process. Replacement blades are available as are all other parts.
