    You will never regret buying a PP.

    The HT250 is a specialty pole saw.
    It is mainly sold to loggers for cutting off excess length of logs on trailer.
    It is a 40cc saw that uses the same Bar as the 192t and 200T and I don't know of a larger cc pole saw that is manufactured.
    I am in agreement that a telescoping pole would be more useful but I got about 12" more length by fabricating a rear handle.
    This made the saw more balanced also.Click image for larger version.

    Whoa, cool handle! Is it after-market gear?

    Same power plant/head as the FS250s. I had one with the saw head attachment. Cuts like crazy. Good tool.
    Interesting how a limited gene pool and a limited labor force seem to be so closely related.

    Just a tad heavy, though!

    No--I am a retired Tool&Die Maker and I fabricated the rear handle.
    Before, both hands were on pole in front of power head.
    Now I cut with one hand on pole and the other on rear handle. (power head between hands)
    This made it much more balanced with 12" or so increased cutting reach.

    You should offer that mod and make some money, like modding a saw!

    They ship it to you and you hook em up!
