Our reviews compared
Husqvarna 128LDX – An outstanding saw that will make pruning back the trees, shrubbery and bushes in your back yard as simple as it gets. More power than your average electric saw, which in turn, offers a lot more reliability in both cutting and how durable it is.
Priced slightly higher than what we would expect an average model to go for, but looking through its long list of specifications in the manual, you get what you pay for. Any doubts, we point you towards our review here.
Husqvarna 327pt5s – Another gas option that can certainly enhance your productivity in pruning. As pole saws go, this is definitely on the higher end of the price scale, and for that reason alone, we only suggest this one if you are going to be using it on a regular basis.
There are much more convenient options out there for half the price if you are only going to be using it from time to time.
Overall, you will find numerous models from this brand offering a wide range of features and specifications including detachable shafts, telescopic tubes, harnesses, and plenty more. All designed to maximize usability, user comfort, and functionality.
Taking into account the points above, we feel one of these could make a fantastic addition to your garden tool shed. The simplicity and ease of use combined with the added incentive of less time consuming gardening make them a sensible choice for maintaining shrubbery, plants, and tree lines.
