There are pros and cons to using an electric pole saw vs. a manual pole saw vs. a gas pole saw. The electric pole saw is a great choice due to it being far easier to start than a gas pole saw, easier to operate and easier to maintain with the added benefit of far less pollution.
The downside to an electric pole saw is you will need electric outlets outdoors, and lots of extension cords if you have a large yard. If you don’t have an outdoor outlet, you’re going to want to call infiniteelectrician.com now. They can have you up and running with proper outdoor outlets for a great price that can be lower than the cost of gasoline for using a gas pole saw.
That being said, here’s what to know about various electric pole saws currently on the market.
