[London Drugs] Fiskars Extendable Pole Saw/Tree Pruner (14') - $49.99

Regular price $89.99...I was going to buy this from Home Hardware (30% off Fiskars yard tools), but this deal is even better.

Good deal indeed. Anyone know if Home Depot would price match this in Ontario?

Doubtful unless you get an associate that doesn't notice or care that LD only sells them in-store.

is this an old version? The other one is driven by chains other than a rope.

I don't think it's older necessarily. Just less expensive.

Decent deal. I scored a Corona 14ft one from when Lowes was clearing stuff out for $25

The chain drive model is quite a jump up in price ($129.99). This one should be good enough for my yard.

Debating between this and Sunjoe Electric Pole Saw from Walmart.
PM with HD for $103.50+tax

Totally get that they are 2 different tools, but why not go electric and make pruning/lopping easier. Plus the Sunjoe becomes a light duty chainsaw too.

The fiskars lopper is only good for branch 1” thick

Two different tools for two different purposes. The SunJoe only goes to 9 feet but is good for thicker branches while the Fiskars goes to 14 feet but is more for smaller branches.

That extra height does make a huge difference! And like I said I totally get that they are 2 different tools for different purposes.
Maybe I should just get both. Lol

Exactly. Get both since it's not a one or the other thing. I suspect that the SunJoe is actually pretty heavy so you would want to use the Fiskars even at relatively low heights over hauling out the SunJoe.

Walmart was selling that Sun Joe saw for $65.97 a little over 2 weeks ago. walmart-sun-joe-swj805e-electric-conver ... 7-2375328/

I do have both and haven't used the Fiskars since getting the electric pole saw about 6 years ago. The pole saw will do most everything the Fiskars will do but not the other way round.

So there is nothing in the past 6 years that was higher than 9 feet that you needed to trim? Or did you trim everything down to 9 feet once you got the electric pole saw?

I have the sunjoe. Great device to cut down and then break down the large pieces fast. But yes. Fully extended to hit some taller stuff to break it down is very hard. Very heavy to position. But I’m trying to cut down some bigger trees here. 15-20ft. Have to tie down and cut some top leafy items then work down to the thicker branches.
This manual one might actually work better in that case. Light weight. Cut some small items down so it doesn’t drop hard or swing too wide. Then use the sunjoe to quickly bring it down 1/3 at a time

Unless you plan on lying on the ground when you using it, factor in your own height and any ladder that you have access to.

Same goes for either - ie you are the same height or you have access to the same ladder. The point was that one gives you more reach and the other does not.
