The Longboy Pole Saw has been developed as a pole saw with a permanently attached folding saw blade. This can easily be transported and stored as un-extended it is shorter than either the Zubat Pole Saw or the Forester Pole Saw. It is a lightweight telescopic pole saw with an oval shaped aluminium alloy pole which offers both strength and precise control. It can be used in a wide range of applications including trimming, pruning, gardening, forestry and arboriculture.
The telescopic design has two locking systems – a spring loaded locking button and friction clamps which work in tandem to ensure a strong and stable pole extension.
This lightweight pole saw can be used from the ground or climbed with to gain greater pruning range without the use of heavier, more cumbersome equipment. The bright yellow design makes it clearly visible.
It is designed with two extension poles and offers an extension range of 1.45m – 3.60m. The saw has a curved 360mm blade with a mid-range teeth ratio of 7.5 teeth per 30mm.
A yellow rigid-plastic blade guard is included, which locks onto the pole when folded for extra protection. The base poles have pole-end shock absorbers and a comfortable rubberised GOM over-grip which ensures good hold and control. The base pole also has a wrist strap which can be attached at the top or bottom of the handle. This is designed to transfer the weight of the LongBoy Pole Saw to your bicep rather than your neck.
Longboy blades cannot be re-sharpened due to the use of electro-impulse hardening in the manufacturing process. Replacement blades are available as are all other parts.
