We spent 26 hours on research, videography, and editing, to review the top choices for this wiki. When left to their own devices, healthy trees and towering bushes can grow into an out-of-control jumble of limbs and branches in a hurry. You’ll need to trim them occasionally to keep everything neat and tidy. Instead of fighting with a ladder to achieve the proper height for pruning, grab one of these cordless pole saws, so you can handle all that cutting from the safety of the ground. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to support our work. Skip to the best cordless pole saw on Amazon.

Editor's Notes

October 25, 2018:

Noted the ability of the Hooyman 655236 to collapse into a compact size, making it the best option for combining portability with power. Investigated reports of minor oil leaking in a couple items, but the impact was not significant enough to keep them off the list.
