Tree Maintenance with a Cordless Pole Pruner (Chainsaw on a Stick)

We've been shooting segments for CTS TV's Real Life and here's the first - I'll update them weekly.  I was a little hysterical in this one because I really love my pole pruner.  And it kinda shows.


One of the easiest ways to perform DIY tree care is to use a quiet, lightweight cordless chainsaw mounted on the end of a pole.  WARNING:  If your neighbours see you using this tool they will come over and watch you silently for a whole day.  And after that they will borrow it every weekend. 



OOH! I want one.


Since you are a fan on batteries and I've seen you using Ryobi cordless tools, I have a cordless chainsaw that came in a Ryobi tool kit that I'd be more than willing to drop ship to you.


Very kind of you Michael but I already have a battery-powered chainsaw and I'm accident prone enough that using two at once is inadvisable.
