How long does the battery last on the PS250 Pole Saw?
A 4.0 Ah Battery Pack will last up to 500 cuts per charge on 2-3 inches (5-7 centimeters) diameter limbs. This performance may vary with user technique, chain sharpness, size, and type of wood. A 2.6 Ah Battery Pack will make up to 325 cuts. Cuts per charge will drop significantly with increasing diameter wood. The new 6.0 Ah Battery pack will bring 50% more run time compared with the 4.0 Ah Battery pack.

Use a screwdriver on the tension adjustment screw, located inboard of the guide bar on the front face of the pole saw, to adjust chain tension as described in the operator’s manual.
If I overload the pole saw, will the battery or saw be damaged?
