Home Depot has the Sun Joe Pole Saw SWJ803E on sale thru Google Express for $77.53 Camo color only. Price after 25% off Google Express coupon EXTRA25 is $58.15 with free shipping or less. For some reason, the website took the 25% discount off after applying taxes on mine. So it actually gave me an additional couple of dollars off.

I was really disappointed when I missed the sale on the green one last month. Really happy to get another chance.

"Tackle those hard-to-reach branches with ease. The Sun Joe SWJ803E electric pole chain saw takes the danger and difficulty out of trimming your overgrown trees. Stand safely on solid ground and simply adjust SWJ803Es telescoping pole to gain up to 14 feet of overhead reach. Powered by a robust 8Amp motor, the SWJ803Es multi-angle head can handle the most stubborn tree limbs up to 9.5- in. thick. It features a durable, 10- in. Oregon bar and chain with an auto-oiler to keep the bar and chain fully lubricated during use. Unlike gas-powered tools, SWJ803E is powered electrically, so you will reliably power up with the push of a button without having to deal with smoke, fumes, unpredictable starters or costly tune-ups. Plus the SWJ803E comes equipped with a built-in safety switch to prevent accidental starting. The Sun Joe SWJ803E electric pole chain saw carries a full two-year warranty."

These things work REALLY well...the one bad thing is - they seem to leak the bar & chain oil all over the place. I've taken to wrapping mine with shop rags when done with it.

I bought this (from STAPLES; yes, STAPLES using my $40+$40 rewards + $15).

It works, but my main complaint with this is that the chain keeps coming off and I have to loosen the nut and re-position the chain.

This is good if you have a power source. I've about 500' of driveway and my choices were
pack a generator or go cordless. I bought the 40V Harbor Freight Lynxx [harborfreight.com]when it was on sale for $140, now $160. The battery seems to last forever.
No hassles with fuel mix or extension cords.

The multi-angle head on the Sun Joe is a nice feature but I would highly recommend a cordless solution.

/edit - Just found a $20 off coupon [hfqpdb.com] so that would bring the Lynxx down to $140.

I think it's kind of interesting that something like this comes in colors.

The thought of a purple chain saw is just too funny to me. Coverlaugh

Can this be used for bushes and shrubs, given the length? Or is it a primary use of tree trimming?

Mine leaks too and it's not Sun Joe brand. I get a feeling that most do it to some degree Frown

good price... I almost got this model but decided on the 8" blade 6.5 amp SWJ802E instead. The pole on that model extends an extra 16" (9' 4" vs 8' 0" on this one), which was the most important feature to me. I also have an 18" regular electric chainsaw which covers me for larger trunks.

Regarding the leaking oil, from what I've read it sounds like it leaks through the cap when the pole saw is stored upright. The MFG recommends to store horizontally (with the cap up I believe). I don't have personal experience with the SWJ802E yet (it's on route to me), but my 18" Craftsman leaked a very small amount of oil at first (haven't noticed it lately).

Looking at the picture, it looks like it comes with a very short cord, so I'd assume you'd also need a very long extension cord to power?

Yep - that's where I first saw it leak - out the cap. So, being the smart guy I am...I put it up horizontally in the rafters of my shed. Pulled it down the other night (without tilting it)...and oil came out all over my Goldwing. I was not amused.

The cord is like 6", so yes...look for a deal on a decent extension cord, as well Smilie

I saw somewhere a discussion about the length limitations & type of power cords for this type of application. But of course, now I can't find it. Any suggestions?
