The assembly instructions were not as clear as I would have liked, so you will probably want to see some assistance if you have no experience with a chain saw. Also, it is a bit heavier than I had anticipated when using it fully extended. Overall, though, I love this saw. It worked great for my overgrown fruit trees, and saved me a great deal of time being able to trim limbs without using a ladder. Also, the same saw was more at the local chain hardware store, so I was glad to find this on Overstock for less.
It is good to have a 2 in one pole saw. However, it becomes too heavy to use with the pole. Also, the oil reservoir is too small to save sufficient lube for a bigger job.
I have been really impressed by the effectiveness of this tool. The length is perfect, and it isn't too heavy when fully extended. I was able to cut down limbs from high up, and then convert the chainsaw to handheld and cut through 2-inch limbs with ease. Awesome product.
