4.9 meter pole saw fully extended
2.4 m before extended.
390 mm blade, with top and bottom sickle.
This is the best extension saw on the market, great mid size.. this saw feels so nice in your hands, exceptional quality, oval shaped aluminium tubes, locking options from 2.4 up to a massive 4.9 m long.. so you could reach up to 6 meters easily.. padded rubber handle, blade has a plastic removeable sheath, and blade can also be removed.. if you have medium to large trees around the home that need trimming/ pruning, then this saw is invaluable..
Warning.. these poles saws, while having a rubber handle, are a potential hazard for overhead powerlines, so you have to be very mindful and careful of keeping well away from power lines, or most likely power coming into your home, if not underground.. also you have to be careful from branches falling back onto you, so this is a tool you have to be very careful with..

I’VE SEEN SILKY SAWS ON EBAY OVERSEAS CHEAPER THAN YOUR PRICES, CAN YOU DISCOUNT?
Ok, so our prices are best we can do, we can’t discount.. they are pretty much as far as I know, around the cheapest on AU websites.. there are some dealers on ebay, selling from Japan, offering for example a katana boy for much less than we can buy them for.. I’ve talked to Silky Japan, and these ebay sellers are not authorised, so there is no warranty on the saws.. also, the blades are thinner, and not the same high tensile steel as the ones we sell in Australia.. they are a lighter version, not suitable for hardwood. Also, Silky themselves are concerned that the saws offered on ebay may be fakes… so , yeah if you price check and see something cheaper overseas, then now you know why this is the case.. buyer beware I suppose.. Drifta is an authorised distributor of Silky, we uphold all warranty issues, not that we’ve had any, and all items are of course genuine Silky saw.. : ) L
UPDATE.. I was just at silky’s HQ in October, near Kyoto in Japan.. spent the day with the GM Mr Miyawaki, who’s grandfather created the silky company 100 years ago.. so he explained more on the cheaper saws on ebay.. basically, silky have a range of saws for the local market, and also a separate range for export market, also called the ‘professional series’ .. silky has a much bigger range of saws for the local market, and has many more ‘entry level’ saws, which aren’t as strong as the ‘professional series’ .. so the fittings are stronger, and also the blades are much thicker.. this is one of the main differences.. so the imported saws from ebay, have much thinner blades, than the ones we sell.. we only stock the export quality ‘professional series’ silky saws.. so that’s why they are more expensive.. : ) L
