Earthwise PS40008 8-inch Electric Pole Chain Saw

Do your trees need pruning? You could hire an expensive professional gardener to do it for you. Or you could do it yourself. But a good gas powered Pole Chain saw like a Tanaka or Husqvarna can easily cost you around $500.- . That is way too much if you just want to cut some tree limbs 2 times a year. But there is a cheap solution: the Earthwise PS40008 Electric Pole Saw.
It might not be as powerful as an industry-brand gas-powered pole chain saw, but it is more than powerful enough to cut through branches of 7 in. This is not to cut down that 100 year old oak tree, but you can cut away the dead branches, branches growing over your house and other lighter work.

As with most other pole chainsaws we found Amazon.com to have the best price on the Earhtwise PS40008 Electric Pole Chain Saw plus you can get free shipping which is always nice. Get more information or just get it from Amazon.

The Earthwise PS40008 is a corded Electric Pole chainsaw with a 10.2 feet extension pole. Making it easy for you to prune the trees around your house, without ever worrying if you still have enough gas left, or if the battery will hold long enough.

Earthwise PS40008 Electric Pole Chain Saw review

Although this is not one of the most popular pole chain saws on the market, We still found a fair amount of reviews. Most of them were very positive.

As with all electric and gas powered pole chain saws the most common complaint is that it is on the heavy side when used fully extended. Some upper body strength is required. The PS40008 is easy to assemble but the instructions are not very clear. Which results in some problems, like someone who complained that the saw didn’t cut well but after reassembling it it cut through branches like a warm knife through butter. The problem was probably that the chain was put on backwards. You can prevent this by studying the small diagrams that come with the chain saw. Also make sure you buy some chain saw oil, as the Earthwise PS40008 doesn’t come with any. The chain saw also seems to collect a lot of wood/debris under the casing which can eventually stop the chain from working. When or before this happens you should get rid of the wood under the casing, just make sure that you unplug it first!

Overall the reviews are very positive. People are surprised about the quality of the Earthwise as it is very cheap but still does a great job.

Get it from Amazon

Our conclusion is that the Earthwise PS40008 is a good electric pole chain saw but it has its flaws, but none of the flaws actually prevent it from doing a great job. In case of the saw collecting cutting debris in the casing, you can easily clean that out and continue your work.
This electric pole chain saw is cheaper than the others but it does its job well and is more than worth every penny, That’s why we give the Earthwise PS40008 a strong recommendation, especially if you don’t want to spend much on a pole saw.

Well set out website and easy to read content. Great Job
Unfortuntely can’t get them sent to Australia.

Yes, most of the pole chain saws are not being shipped outside the US. The only one I know off that gets shipped outside the us (don’t know if they send it to Australia) is the Tanaka TBC-255SFK. Which I’m writing a review of at the moment. But this is a 3-in-1 combo and of a different quality and price than the Earthwise ps40008. You might try your local hardware store. Just don’t pay too much.

The Earthwise CS30014 is packaged with a plastic blade cover. This will help keep the bar and chain protected while in storage. The chain saw is backed by a one year warranty.
