Lightweight, professional-grade aluminum telescoping pole saw - The pole saw of choice by professionals. The aluminum alloy extension poles are oval shaped, providing precise control over the direction of the blade (especially important for high cutting) thus reducing bending to the minimum. The base pole has a pole-end shock absorber and comfortable rubberized overgrip. The 13-inch impulse-hardened curved blade utilizes proprietary Silky MIRAI-ME (Smooth Cutting) Technology - The Teeth of the Future! The precision-ground, razor-sharp teeth with four cutting angles provide fast, clean and extremely smooth cutting action. The taper-ground profile reduces drag and directs more usable energy to the cutting edge. It is ideal for pruning branches at a higher position without ever climbing a ladder. Black rigid-plastic blade cover is included. Made in Japan.

To allow effective use of ZUBAT pole saws, two locking systems are incorporated to assure structural rigidity of the extended poles: 1) locking pins/buttons - the primary pole locking mechanism; and 2) friction clamps - the secondary pole locking mechanism. The two systems are designed to work together. This dual locking system allows 100% of the effort at the handle to be effectively transferred to the blade up to 13 feet away. Spring-loaded locking buttons allow multiple length adjustments and safety friction clamps hold the extensions firmly in place. Safety considerations require that the pole saw user must wear a hard hat and eye protection at all times. Manufacturer Warning: Do not use aluminum telescoping pole saws around electrical power lines or equipment. Electrical shock may result. Incorrect use of the Silky pole saw may cause injury.

Customer Reviews

Love this lightweight pole saw. Review by mscaron
Love this lightweight pole saw. This is perfect for getting most of what we used to use a ladder to reach. We use it promarily for limbing branches up above pathways. The saw is also easily removed from the pole and used as a hand saw for unexpected tight cuts. (Posted on 9/13/2017)
ISA Arborist Review by Dan Begley
We've been using Silky products for 12 years. They're superb. I like to prune large trees with the Zubat hanging from my harness. I positional myself comfortably to work a large section at a time. Cuts quickly and cleanly. (Posted on 7/19/2015)
Great product Review by Pruner
Saw works as advertised. Tool is light weight, blade is very sharp, extension mechanism and clamp are well designed. Quickly cleaned my property of low-hanging tree branches. Highly recommend this product. (Posted on 7/16/2014)
Good For Light Work Review by Top Notch Tree Care, LLC
I like the lighter weight, but 13 feet does run out fast when you're on the ground and the lack of knives on the ends of the saw (especially the bottom end) greatly increases the risk of bark peeling. I also question the durability. I have been using the saw properly since I bought it saw in the spring (2012) and by fall the bottom pole had broken at the pin location and the tip of the blade broke off a short while later.
