The Forester has all characteristics of a professional pole saw, and is still lightweight and compact. With the thin blade you can easily maneuver, even at greater heights and in densely grown spaces. Sawing itself is easy, quick and safe. No goofing around on a ladder, but firmly with both feet on the ground.
The strong blade is mounted on the pole by two bolts. There is no wiggle room in the blade, which gives you a great feeling with the sawing job at hand, always leading to the same reliable result.
The sickle at the end of the blade helps you to keep the blade in the sawing cut. You can also use the upper sickle to cut little twigs off the trunk or to pull little (dead) branches from the tree.
As the aluminum pole is oval-shaped, you have a very precise control over the direction of the blade. Moreover, this shape gives more strength and rigidity over the full length of the pole saw, and reduces bending to a minimum. With a retracted pole length of just 1700 mm, the saw can easily be stowed and taken along.
The two locking mechanisms (pushbuttons and levers) together create the safest and most stable locking of the preferred pole length. The lowest pole part is covered with rubber for a comfortable and safe grip. The bumper at the bottom protects the pole from bumps or thrusts. The red design makes the Forester highly visible.
Always think of your own safety: make sure you stand at a safe distance from falling branches and wear a safety helmet and eye protection.
Optionally available is a HookFox to mount underneath the blade. With this hook you easily pull down sawn off branches that get stuck in the tree.
The Forester is available in 2 extended lengths: 3000 and 4500 mm.
The Forester will be delivered with a tailor-made plastic cover that protects the blade. The cover is incorporated with a roller to prevent the sharp teeth damaging the cover.

The blade must be kept clean to maintain its efficiency. Resin dissolves in olive oil, which is an effective and environmental friendly way to maintain the blade with.
When not using the saw, make sure it is fully dry before retracting the poles. Slide the cover over the blade and store the pole saw at a dry place.
Do not forget to frequently check whether the screws on the blade are still properly tightened.
