Silky HAYAUCHI 21ft Pole Saw 3-extension XL teeth

Product Review (submitted on July 13, 2014):
I purchased a Silky 21' pole saw yesterday and went straight to work when I got back to the house. I really liked having the extra length which allowed me to get to some of the low hanging branches I've been wanting down. It was working great and taking down 4" limbs with ease and I sawed around 8 limbs down. I had the pole saw extended almost all of the way out and I was working on my next limb. I got through the limb and the pole saw started to lean and with a firm grip I started bringing the pole saw back to the vertical position. When I was raising the pole saw back for a controllable balance the aluminum on the pole saw failed and bent almost into an L shape. The bend was 6 inches from the first extension latch closest to the handle. The (UTS) ultimate tensile strength of the aluminum in my brand new Silky 21’ pole saw had reached its maximum stress causing it to fail and break. It’s hard to believe that a superior product such as the one I had just purchased would fail and break under its own weight within under 2 hours of work. I was honestly excited about my new pole saw and I love working outside on my property but I am not at all impressed with the Silky 21’ pole saw. It did saw straight through the 8 branches I was able to get down before the saw failed and broke. I was only able to use it for an hour and a half before my new $ 300.00 purchase was useless. Maybe it was defective but I am extremely hesitant to get another one when I return it tomorrow.--Nolan Buchanan
