Super quality, extending telescopic pole saw.. can extend in varying lengths up to 7.7 meters, this is a huge reach for a pole saw.. folds to 2300 Long, weighs 4.5 kg and the blade is 420 mm long, with a strong plastic cover.. if you have branches need trimming from your yard, and if you have mature trees there is usually always branches that need trimming, then the Hayate is ideal.. great for cutting mistletoe from eucalypts, trim fruit from palm trees, there are so many uses for this silky pole saw.. it can easily cut branches up to 100 mm, and I’ve cut several branches up to 200 mm across, but it does take some effort.. I’ve been trimming trees that are shading my solar panels.. one bloke bought one from me the other day, he had palm trees overhanging his pool, and the bats would come every year and eat the palm fruit, and crap into the pool… you don’t want to swim in a pool full of bat crap, so by removing the fruit, it is an easy solution..
I had bought a stihl extendable chain saw a couple of years ago.. it was 1500 bucks, and while a very good tool, it only reaches 3m… so you can almost climb a ladder and use a hand saw.. but most of the limbs etc that need trimming are higher up.. this is where the silky saw is so valueable..
WARNING… it can be dangerous trimming trees… it’s not as easy as it looks, and is more dangerous than you think.. you need to be physically strong to use this saw.. and it could be very dangerous if you are near powerlines, so be EXTREMELY CAREFUL … but using a chainsaw is dangerous, so just be careful, and watch what you are doing..
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
