Tool or Gardening Product

Remington 18 Volt Cordless Polesaw
Using a handsaw to remove 2-, 3-, or 4-inch-thick dead or live branches is tedious and time-consuming. The new Remington 18 Volt Cordless Polesaw makes short work of pruning shrubs and tree limbs. Even better, the detachable 8-inch battery-powered chainsaw turns on with a two trigger buttons. No frustrating pull cord!!! The polesaw's telescoping pole extends from 47 to 83 inches. The battery pack slides into the pole handle OR the chainsaw. Charged battery lasts about 25 minutes so it's definitely worth buying a second battery for backup. Cost is $164.99 plus shipping.
