The Final Cut
Comparing the Husqvarna and the Stihl pole saw was not an easy task and in fact, there are a lot of similarities between the two saws. These similarities have made it even harder to decide which pole saw will work for your needs. The Husqvarna pole saw and the Stihl pole saw both run on gas, therefore, these are guaranteed to have relentless power for many applications. There is no worry about losing power or complicated extension cords because you can work for as long as you have fuel.
Another very common feature that the two pole saw shared was the flexible but non-telescoping shaft. Both saws are able to tackle high jobs like tall branches and high plumes of leaves because of this extended reach. Too bad these cannot be extended higher with a telescoping shaft.
Still another common feature between the two is the tool’s balanced construction. The Husqvarna has a harness that improves balance even further. The harness steadies the user and keeps control over the tool. Meanwhile, the Stihl already has an efficient and sturdy design and this is important to help you raise the pole saw or to move effortlessly from one material to another.
Now the differences and the reason why one tool seem to shine brighter than the other. Both tools can cut better with a balanced saw body but the Stihl has more features to make it a good pole saw. It comes with an Easy2Start feature that lets you start the saw with just a light pull on the engine. It has an efficient engine as well and gives you cleaner emissions. These good features make the Stihl better than the Husqvarna model.
There are a lot of benefits to shopping smart for power tools and one of these is that you get the power saw that fits your needs. By understanding the properties and capabilities of each saw and comparing one product to another will help you find the right pole saw for a variety of applications.
