This is the strongest pole saw by Silky. This one is for the professional! Thick state-of-the-art oval shaped poles. This shape provides precise control over the direction of the blade (especially important poles of this length) and reduces the chance of bending to a minimum.
The poles have a double locking system to assure the rigidity of the poles. There is a pin/button that holds the poles together and then a friction clamp that squeezes the poles holding them tight.
Both of these locking systems keep the poles in place and also protect each system from damaging the other. The spring-loaded locking buttons have multiple length positions allowing you to have the pole extended at a variety of lengths. The base pole has a pole-end shock absorber and award winning GOM rubber over grip.
The lower 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 pole saw to your bicep rather than your neck. The 42cm curved blade has non-set, Silky MIRAI-ME style of teeth (Smooth Cutting Technology) - The Teeth of the Future! This style of tooth is precision-ground, razor-sharp and provides an incredibly fast, clean and extremely smooth cutting style. The branch will seem as though you have given it a light sand after you finished cutting.
The blade is taper ground and designed to do the work for you, because of the hollowed blade there is no drag and this helps the saw to cut efficiently with less effort. The blade features a replaceable lower sickle for small branches and undercutting bark. This is made from a different style of metal and so is very strong. The curved shaped blade, works brilliantly in a pole saw application.
