18V ONE+™ 8" Pole Saw with 1.3Ah Battery & Charger
18V ONE+™ 8" Pole Saw with 1.3Ah Battery & Charger is rated out of 5 by 1932.
Rated 5 out of 5 by DarthDaddy98 from Fast, versatile, and reliable. A great value! I bought this tool well over 2 years ago and I honestly did not have high expectations. I have a ficus hedge that has gotten out of control and neede to be cut down to size. This little saw zips through ficus limbs like a hot knife through butter and comes back for more. I am still using the original chain that came with the saw, even though I bought a spare just in case. My only complaint is that the collars that hold the extensions in place get wedged in place and are sometimes difficult to turn, but gentle persuasion with a pair of vice-grips does the job easily. This tool is an excellent value and does a great job for me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by cloclo from So convenient! A chainsaw is a chainsaw, and they're all dangerous, including a pole saw. An electric one like this Ryobi provides the operator greater control, and it is so convenient as well as safer. Not having to mess with gasoline and oil and not having to worry about whether your engine will start or not is worth a lot. You still have to worry about the chain tension, which is fairly easy to adjust, and you have to use bar and chain oil to lubricate the bar and chain. I cannot easily determine how much oil is in the container when I fill it, which is why I dropped one star in my rating. On balance, this pole saw does a good job, quickly and efficiently.

Rated 1 out of 5 by brentj77 from Problematic from day one I bought this a year ago and it just seemed to run rough. I put the bar chain oil in and that leaks all down the pole. After using it 5 times the battery died. I took it back to home depot and they gave me a full in store credit so I purchased another one. I just used it once (literally cut one branch) and the chain came off. When I removed the cover I noticed the sprocket came right off. Either they forgot to put the retaining clip on during manufacturing or it came off after one use. A total waste of several hours of my Saturday to return the unit for a second time. Not to mention that I still have to do all the work I was planning on doing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Pepaw from Great limb trimmer I brought this Labor Day weekend and used it all day Saturday and most of the day Sunday. It performed really good. I read the reviews and went to Home Depot and checked it out. I found that my store even sells replacement 8" Oregon chain that will work on it. The chain stayed sharp the whole weekend. I had to tighten the chain about 6 times. It tightens just like a chain saw does. I used about a half a quart of chain saw lube. It cut 8" limbs with no problems. I hauled off about 8 pick up load of limbs to the recycle place. I had other Ryobi 18V one + tools and used their 4 Ah batteries. I would recommend this tool and would buy it again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by laurie m from Love it! Bought this pole saw about 3 years ago and I use it every spring/summer for cutting limbs off trees. The limbs range from 2-3" diameter up to 6" and this saw is wonderful. I use both the bigger 18V batteries as well as the slim line and rarely do I last longer than the battery does. If I do I just pop on another battery and keep cutting. The saw blade is easy to tighten and if you use this enough you will need to tighten it. Oil is easy to add. I use it completely extended most of the time so it is getting a real workout on the bigger limbs. I have a lot of oak trees so the wood is harder than cutting some of the softer varieties.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Ed1946 from Very Good Pole saw I like it very much except for the oiler leaks down the pole and ruins the batteries. When I went to recharge the battery, the charger just stayed on solid Red which means battery defective. Cuts greats, lots of power when the battery is charged. Not much notice that the battery is losing its charge, it just stops, even in the middle of a cut. I would recommend this saw to anyone who wants to cut limbs but be careful with the battery and bar chain oil.

Rated 2 out of 5 by SteveB4321 from Great at first. 1 flaw. The 18-volt pole saw worked great at first. Then after a while the chain would loosen and not stay tight. After a disassemble I discovered the problem. The chain tensioner was made either to small or of weak material and it bent. The chain would not stay tight and would loosen up easily. I went on Ryobi website to order a new part. Of all the replacement parts available that one small piece was out of stock. I have to assume this is a common and known problem. I returned the pole saw. Later bought the 40-volt system and the expand it pole saw. Very happy with that one. Skip the 18-volt one not worth the money.
