Picture this: A Monday after work….6pm…85 degrees and humid in the month of August. So I said to myself, “Gee, nothing to do? I don’t know, maybe I should try another vlog, but this time use one of my other STIHL products (I’ve given the BR 600 a lot of limelight) like the pole pruner.” The angel nested on my right shoulder said in no uncertain terms, “No, this isn’t a good idea”. However, the devil on the left shoulder said, “Let’s do it!”
So I called my friend Lynn and asked if I could come over to prune the trees in the front of her house and if she wouldn’t mind videotaping me for my blog; she graciously said yes to both.
Ok, this was NOT the right day to take on this task; this is definitely an early spring or late fall project. I mean what reasonable person would start cutting limbs off of trees in the middle of August; especially when this isn’t ones livelihood? Yep, that would be me!
Even though this wasn’t one of my all time smartest moves, the pole pruner worked fantastic and was very effective. This attachment goes along with the STIHL KombiSystem which has various attachments that take on other tasks like hedge trimming, edging, cleaning, and cultivating. Great product!
Of course at this point you know how I am about safety and protecting myself so I once again was outfitted properly (you’ll have to watch the video to get the actual visual).
We had our share of laughs and the neighbors were quite impressed; I even got a job offer from someone that lived down the street. She had some tree pruning of her own and wanted to hire me for the job! I politely declined.
In any case enjoy the video. Looking forward to your comments!
