Seems like good price, was $10 more yesterday. The lowest on eBay currently is $65 so about the same but without the easy return.

So what is a more useful getting this one which is a little bigger with multiple cutting angles but doesn't convert to a chainsaw. Or getting the other version which converts to the chainsaw, is 8 inches and doesn't cut at different angles?

I already have regular chainsaw so for me was no brainer. However, the angle seems like important feature, unless it's flimsy marketing trick. This will be my first chainsaw prunner.

It all depends how much of what you will need.

Last summer, I used this to help take down some 30-foot African tulip trees growing on my property.

I used the Sun Joe to trim the lower branches for a more predictable fall line. Some of the branches were pretty thick, upwards of 8 inches in diameter. I had to cut from both sides in order to get them down.

I used a larger chain saw to fell the trees.

Then, I used the Sun Joe to trim all the limbs from the downed trees. The Sun Joe sliced and diced the branches into smaller pieces to be hauled away.

That left the clean trunk of the trees to be dispatched by the larger, heavier-duty chain saw.

All in all, I was very happy with how well the Sun Joe worked.

BTW, the job was made much more difficult because of the Little Fire Ants.

I suited up in a Tyvek suit and taped sleeves/gloves and the pants/boots to completely seal them. I used a superfine mesh head gear to protect my head area. I was only able to work a few hours at a time in this get up.

But at least I was able to work without getting bitten.


Note: African tulip trees are very fast growing trees. Their wood is very soft. So, while the Sun Joe easily dispatched the limbs of the African tulip trees, the experience on hardwood trees might be substantially different.

I would get this one with the angle. If you are looking for a traditional chain saw (that's eletric) look into the worx chainsaw. They arent perfect but they get the majority of jobs done. There is no hassle to start them.

+1.

I wouldn't have been able to cut down the big trees on my property with just a straight saw. I really needed one that could be angled.

I have used both and I'd recommend the angled one. The angle actually makes a difference because when you cut, the angle will allow the weight to rest on the branch. A straight one will just lightly lay on the side of the branch as you cut and will take longer.

They also have extended hedge trimmer for 60.93. This could be a good deal as well

I have a dinky little electric chain saw like this but not on a pile and it is so finicky with the chain getting undone a lot. Seems like on a pole would be even more difficult... But if it works then it sounds amazing

I tackled this very question not too long ago, as I needed a pole saw and actually bought both and ended up returning the angled one. My feeling is that if you are primarily going to use this as a pole saw, get the angled one, but if you have any use for the chainsaw, get the convertible one. A few things I noticed were that the convertible one is about 4 lbs heavier and it's all in the head which does make a bit of difference when using it fully extended. Also the handle for the chainsaw tends to get in the way a little when trying to make cuts flush against the tree trunk. As already mentioned, it also comes with a smaller 8" cutting bar, which will make a difference if cutting larger branches (although a 10" bar would also work in this). Having said that, the convertible saw does extend about a foot further, which is very useful in a pole saw. Also, the chainsaw came in very handy when having to trim down the long branches once they were already on the ground. I was also able to do this with the pole saw, but it was a bit more awkward. All in all, I am very happy with the performance of these saws.

I also just bought the HF pole saw (also still in the box) for about $58 with coupon. I haven't broke it out and used it, but considering the small extra power this SunJoe might have, I chose the SunJoe and will be returning the HF one.
BTW - I also opted to get the convertible SunJoe pole saw. My trees are relatively "small" in branch size (no more than 5-6" diameter, so I don't think the issue of weight and bulkiness will affect me much.

We needed to have some branches cut because our neighbor's trees were overgrown and leaning against our fence, essentially breaking it. We got two estimates for $500-$550. Instead of spending that much, we bought this exact model for $70 on Amazon last year, and I've got to say that this little saw is a real workhorse. My husband and I cut down enough wood to fill three pickup trucks, and some of the branches were almost as big around as a dinner plate. It was actually fun to use and we saved over $400 by doing it ourselves. It's easy to oil, easy to adjust the chain, and easy to use. This was the first time either of us had used a chainsaw and neither of us is particularly handy. This is a fantastic deal!
