I'd have called it a pole saw, but that's OK. I've got a
couple branches that rub on my trailer. I called the park
office, early August. Two months later, still have branches
With the above saw, it took me about 15 minutes to trim the
branches. That the park hasn't done in 10 weeks. Well, gosh,
that "rubs me the wrong way".
I used the pull saw, on branches up to about inch diameter.
Used the rope pull lopper a couple times, it pulls rather
hard. But, it did some good.

It's a cheap piece of crap that works fine the first time - and
deteriorates with every use untill it is useless before finishing
trimming an average tree.
I've worn out (sprung) several of them - then I got a couple with
cast aluminum heads. They didn't deteriorate gradually like the steel
ones, but working them too hard I broke the castings.
I have since found a GREAT unit - a straight jaw type from Lee
Valley. I guess the official term is an "anvil" pruner, as compared to
a bypass trimmer. It cost me about $50 but it will last me a LONG time
- and the pole is aluminum extrusion, not flimsy fiberglass.
I also got myself an electric pole chainsaw - tried it on the cherry
tree on Saturday and it was a real treat - went through 4" branches
like butter. (8 inch bar)
