During our tests, we managed to specify 4 major types:
- Folding tools for manual labor – the best choice for those gardeners who seek a portable and lightweight saw (like EverSaw Folding Saw);
- Non-folding tools – these saws come with a carrying case or sleeve to avoid any harm during transportation;
- Classic saws – where the blade comes with a telescoping pole (not a handle). In such a way, a person can easily reach a tree to prune the branches;
You will find different models in this guide, but all of them fall under the above-mentioned types. We tried to cover the features of the best pruning saws attached to the poles (both folding and non-folding ones) from the most recognized brands in the market – TABOR TOOLS, Silky, Samurai Ichiban and POCKETBOY.
Taking into account the price/quality ratio, the Corona RS 7245 model turned out to be the greatest pick. This 7-inch saw with 6 teeth, and the ergonomic handle is only under $30.
We tried to stay unbiased and focused on the pole saws that are awesome for cutting the branches of trees or bushes. In my humble opinion, the best tools come with the practical blades the length of which is no more than 8 inches. That is why all models in this review range between 6-8 inches. Especially look at folding tools that are good for your budget and safe to transport until you need pruning.
