Rated 1 out of 5 by from Again, Great while it lasts I have used this saw with great enthusiasm. It worked great until the motor mount (a cast Al/Zn part) cracked in the middle where the mounting holes line up to provide the perfect stress concentration for part failure. I am a retired mech engineer, and this part is designed to fail in this mode. I hope there is a new design available as the basic product is great. As often happens one bad part is all it takes to ruin an otherwise nice design. It should be a steel piece. I may machine up a steel replacement, but most folks do not have the capability to do this. Most unfortunate!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great while it lasts I've gone through two of these over about 6 months. They are fantastic while they work, but the biggest problem I've had is that the drive mechanism for the chain pretty quickly wears out. The motor still runs, the chain spins nicely up until it contacts something I'm trying to cut. As soon as there is any resistance, I hear a loud screeching sound, and the chain stops. Tried adjusting tension, but that doesn't help. Greenworks was great in that they sent me a replacement, but it failed the same way even faster than the first.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful and easy to use Bought this about 3 weeks ago to trim some limbs on a tree in my front yard. They were just out of reach with my ladder and I tried my neighbor's loud and heavy gas model. My 40V battery fit so I could use that to power. Put in some bar oil and in seconds the limbs were down. Now everyone on my block has borrowed it. Thanks for a great saw.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this saw I got this for Christmas and used it yesterday on some crepe myrtles and some tree limbs hanging in our yard. Nice and quiet with the power to get the job done. I gave out before the battery did. I got a stick stuck in the chain so I got real familiar with the inside workings of the saw. Piece of cake. Easy to install a new chain/bar and to retension the chain. I would recommend this to anyone needing a pole saw.

The motor mount (a cast AlZn alloy) has broken in the center allowing the motor/pinion gear to back off the ring gear. As a mechanical design engineer of 35+ years I can see the design is prone to this failure. Is there an improved part available?

Asked by: Ken Boetzer
Hello Ken, The Pole Saw comes with a four year warranty and two years on the battery and charger. We do have authorized service centers available to inspect the pole saw. GreenWorks will continue to test, and update units when necessary. Please contact our support line at 1-888-909-6757 or email us at info@greenworkstools.com for further assistance.

Does the base unit come with a battery? If you buy the battery and charger do you then have two batteries.

Asked by: Wscott05
Hello Wscott05 Model 20302 is a tool only unit which means it does not include the battery or charger. If you select model 20672 it will come with a battery and charger.

The manual for this tool describes a telescoping pole feature, however there is no such ability. Why is this?

Asked by: carvermon
Hello carvemon, You're correct the G-Max 40v pole saw does not have the telescoping feature. The pole saw has a removable middle pole. The height of pole saw, from the base to the bar tip the unit is 97” long (8’ 1”) with the middle extension. When the middle extension is removed the unit measures 73” (6’ 1”) We will update the manual and we apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.

I notice the extension included extends the length from 5 feet to 8 feet. If I have two of these pole saws, can I borrow the extension from one and install it in the other? The reason I ask is there are some branches that are just barely out of reach!

Asked by: jbx237
Hello jbx237, We would advise against extending the pole saw over the maximum length for safety and operational reasons.The pole saw is not designed for extra extensions.

The owner's manual describes how to adjust the telescoping pole for the #20671 pole saw. Is this even an option? I haven't figured how to do this.

Asked by: scott2303
Hello scott2302, The model 20671 is not a model number we have. The G-max 20672 is not telescoping and has a removable middle pole. I apologize for any confusion this may have caused. Please feel free to contact us at 1-888-909-6757, and customer support representative will be happy to answer anyrquestions or concerns you may have.
