What you have, recommendations, etc. I have had a lot of the <$100 variety and they are just junk. They do not hold up (yes I am hard on things). I have an echo gas pole saw that is sweet, but looking for a lightweight hand pole saw this off season. arborist friend of mine has the 20 or 21' silky. Swears by it, but they like $400. Maybe worth it? Thoughts... go.
