Cutting Head Poor Design
Used this saw to cut a few small limbs and a scraggly bush. The points where the pole secures to the cutting head is made very cheesy, it moves and acts like it is loose. Checked screws for tightness and they were loose. They have a small captive nut on one one side and Phillips on the other. I tightened the screws and it seemed to tighten up. I cut a few more limbs and put the saw up. When I went to replace the blade guard I discovered the head was loose again, I think this design is of poor quality, if you put any pressure on the cutting head while using it, it causes this point to become loose because of plastic flexing. We will see how long this tool lasts.

Handy saw with lots of power
Already had a Greenworks long reach hedge trimmer which came with 40V battery so purchased the bare tool. Great tool for pruning and limbing trees. Easily handles limbs from 1-3 inches in diameter. Has plenty of power to cut a large number of limbs. Long length allows you to reach limbs from ground and using stepladder allows extra reach. Highly recommend.

I love this saw
I bought this saw prior to the 2017 deer season. It’s perfect for trimming branches and cutting down small trees. I’ve cut up to 4 inch trunks with it. The charge continues a long time. I definitely would buy it again, but I don’t have to because this one still runs like it’s new.

The Best Ever!
Being a mechanical contractor, air conditioning over 850 existing churches within a 150 mile radius of NYC, I have bought a lot of tools in my careers...including other Greenwork’s products. This pole saw, however, is the best of all time. Highly recommend!!

Describe Yourself:
A very solid, well made tool.
I've only used it once so far, to test it, and found it is suitable, and that it really cuts fast. I have a Greenworks 16" chainsaw so I had the battery already. I have routinely used a handsaw tree blade attached to a really long fir pole for fairly high limbs; no more -- too much work! You just have to love battery tools.

It's a bit heavier than anticipated, so you just let it rest on your limb, no pushing down is needed, or wanted. Get ready to hold it up because it will cut that limb fast. I plan to also use it (try it) for making final cuts when dropping problem trees for which standing off 6 ft. or more appears desirable. 4 stars due to weight; I'm almost a geezer.

Great product! Great Design and very durable. The product works exactly like a gas chainsaw but much quieter with no trips to the gas station. I am also very impressed with the G-Max series in general. Great products at an amazing price. I will definitely pass on the word. If I were to change anything I would add a handle like the one on the G-Max weed eater. It is a bit heavy which makes it a bit uncomfortable to use. This is the only reason I did not give 5 stars.

Can I use the 80V battery with this pole saw?
A shopper on Oct 31, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Model 20302 will not accept the 80 volt battery.
Does the base model, 20302 come with a carrying case?
Paul on Aug 17, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No, there is not a carrying case, but I just hung on the wall. Hope this
helps. My trees have never looked so good!
does it come with a charger ?
Naser on Jun 13, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The model I bought did not. I have the 16" chainsaw w/4AH battery and charger. I picked up the pole saw and another 4AH battery separately. I did not want a 2AH battery... and the charger with the 16" saw was all I needed.
How does this item come packaged?
Is it one piece pole or does it collapse down for easy transporting
Elad on Nov 30, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Comes boxed in 3 pieces, each about 3 feet long. Saw head, center extension, control section (battery, safety switch, on/off spring loaded trigger). Leave the center section out for closer/lower work. Some of the best money I ever spent!
Is the greenworks bare pole saw (20302) identical to the (20672) less battery and charger
