Hello guys...well I have been picking up more tree jobs on the side...I am thinking about buying a power pruner....do any of you guys have or use the Greenworks 20672 or Greenworks 20302, they just came out this spring I believe...this job would pay for the power pruner, so I can use it on the rest of the jobs I get in the future...

Another option is the hand pole saw like a silky....you can reach further with them...

Anyway just looking for opinions from all you guys that use this stuff all the time...

Dale Hodgins has some experience with various pruners, take a look at his threads. This site even creates related thread links at the bottom of the page where you can find some related options.

I don't have any experience with powered saws but the silky saws are great.  Cut super easy and the weight of the saw does all the work.

My b-in-law got an electric one a couple years ago and I've tried using it a little, trimming on a suburban lot. This one isn't worth anything. Too heavy, too short, just plain awkward to get into position, etc. Way easier to use a good manual pole saw; the clippers many come with have been useful, as well.
