Cons With Solution
Not capable of running without a trimmer
Solution: This pole saw from the TrimmerPlus is a saw of 8 inches. Though it’s a saw, you can call it an attachment too. Because it’s an attachment more, a saw less. Even it’s not possible for this saw to work alone. It needs another companion to run. Without any trimmer, you cannot use the saw. This is a problem. If you have any existing trimmer, no matter it’s old or not, this pole can do a good job by attaching with the trimmer. If you didn’t get a trimmer, you should choose another pole saw instead of this attachment.
Oil leaks from the pole saw
Solution: The pole saw comes with an Oiler. So it should not leak well. But when you are facing this problem, you should check the exact place from where the oil is leaking. To check, do remove the chain and bar cover. Look for the oil leaking place and point it out. If it’s leaking from the oil reservoir and the amount is not much then it must be the problem of placement of the saw. You should place the saw in a horizontal position. Doing it will prevent the oil leaking from the oil reservoir.
