[Walmart] HOT!! - Remington Ranger 8-Amp Electric Pole Saw/Chainsaw - $30

I've been tracking this pole saw for a while. It was $87 for a long time but just dropped to $30 today. I went to the Boardwalk location in Waterloo - 3 left in the Garden Center section (far right as soon as you enter). As with all Walmart deep discounted deals, good luck!

Thanks again to @seafish , you can track inventory here: https://stocktrack.ca/?s=wm&upc=8493184650

Here's the product on Home Depot: https://www.homedepot.ca/product/reming ... 1001407956

This is what the box looks like. It's a massive prism shaped box:

Great price for a useful tool, but not carried in many stores, and OOS in all that do carry it.

Just be careful. My tree guy didn't want me using one of these as he said he didn't want me to end up in a wheelchair. He's not one to try and add work to the bill.

After using a pole saw anyway, I totally get what he meant. Long branches are heavy and turn into springs when the soft side touches down first. Then they go wherever they want and don't much care where you are. This matters more when you're trying for higher branches.

Anything is easier if you pay someone to do it for you.

I agree that these are tricky to use, but not impossible. Never cut all the way through. 95%, see where it swings and mind your head on the final push. As small and light as they are, after using the machine for a while it can feel a bit heavy top side. Take breaks when needed and never force yourself through the project.

Solid advice would be to buy this as a chainsaw only and throw away the stick.
If you absolutely need to cut branches high up use a pole hand saw, if it requires more effort than that then hire someone who knows what he's doing.

Funny bro... I would have said that.
But than again someone may have to cut the occasional tree downed by a storm and "cut 90% and than figure out where is gonna fall" is really noob advice. With a pole chainsaw.
Not that I care.

Thanks,OP. Picked one up at Place Viau, Montreal, this morning. Stocktracker shows presently four instead of eight when I went to pick one up in the seasonal department up on the top ledge against the wall.

Is it illegal to wear those costco orange vest pretending to be city tree guy going around the neighborhood after midnight cutting down branches you don't like?
