Specifications and Features

  • 20-Volt power battery pack with a prolonged lifespan and change retention;
  • It can be extended to 10 feet;
  • The maximum reach overhead is 14 feet;
  • One charge is enough for 100 cuts;
  • Limited 2-year warranty;
  • Weight is less than average – 6.3 pounds;

This specific instrument features a good motor with a single charge, offering up to 100 cuts (the average cutting capacity is 1-1/2-inch pine). Keep in  mind that these are branches of 1-inch rather than 4 pine wood. 

Currently, the LPP120 is one of the lightest saws out there, at just 6.3 lbs. That is why it could be an ideal choice for those users who can’t handle corded electric or gas-based saws – they typically weigh over 11 pounds.

Maintenance for the B + D LPP120 is as simple as it can be. As with any cordless pole saw, after every use, you’ll want to wipe down it with a clean cloth, check the chain for wear and damage. 

The package with the Black + Decker LPP120 pole saw is supplied with a zipped storage bag. 


While there are plenty of good choices among pole saws out there, this saw is not just one of the compact and portable, but at the same time one of the most powerful pole saws with a long reach. It is both reliable and easy to use for anyone even though they haven’t used such tools before.

It could be the most valuable tool for people who do not have plans to use LPP120 intensively. In other words, after the storm or when cutting high branches, it is a great piece of equipment for cleaning. On the other hand, cutting and trimming thin branches won’t do much more than this.
