Gene, Ignore this post...do not read it lest you'd be tempted...

Mr. Gilmore put me on to a pruning tool to prune, trim and remove large shrubs and small trees. Got it from Amazon in 2 days for well under $100.
SUNJOE [ ELECTRIC POLE CHAIN SAW, 10-INCH/ 8 AMP. It isn't a toy and it requires careful use - "You must pay attention to the warnings". The assembly is fairly simple, but read all of the directions before you start....even though it looks logical and you feel mechanically keen-witted.
It is easy to manage and surprisingly quick when used properly. Essentially, it is just a small chain-saw mounted on an extension pole but it will easily do the jobs recommended by the maker...and then some. You will need a three-pronged, extension cord (80' worked for my small back yard). Just use as the makers suggest, no cowboy stuff. Bux

Squire,

That is a nasty briar bush that was located at just the right spot to grab even minutely misguided back casts.
After the third or so interference, I stomped it flat to the ground. "Leaving things as you found them" isn't always the answer. Bux

RTFM. Step one with new hardware. If the maker feels the need to provide one, I'll take the time to read through it.

...Now...if you wanna see me completely lose my mind and begin cursing like a dock hand with Tourettes ...have those instructions be wrong...

A whole bunch of years ago, at a former employer, I ran the packaging for what I believe was the first of those to hit the market.

...sitting here thinking baout that makes me feel older...

Directions are simply one persons opinion.

Do right and Fear Not.

More often that "guy in the office" is some non english speaker who would be better suited to roll firecrackers.

Reminds me of the applicant for a job with a tech company who was asked to use "green", "pin" and "yellow" in a couple of sentences. He answered: "Green, green the telephone rings. I pink it up and and say 'Yellow. This is Mujibar.'"
