Remington RM1025SPS Chainsaw/Pole Saw Review
Let’s face it: We aren’t all Tarzans and Janes. For those high limbs or hard-to-reach areas, there should be a chainsaw that makes getting up in these high or tight spots easier. Well, we have some good news! There is. Introducing the Remington RM1025SPS Chainsaw/Pole Saw Combo.
This tool is meant to impress and performs well with hard-to-reach areas and the ability to cut high branches that are 10 feet to 15 feet with the greatest of ease. In this review, we cover all the features and qualities of this chainsaw, and why we have selected this model to be one of our top ten picks for the best electric chainsaws.
This 2-in-1 Ranger combo pole saw and chainsaw has a quality-build fiberglass/aluminum pole that will extend up to 10 feet to provide a more improved reach for trimming tree branches. You can saw quickly through tree limbs with the 8-amp electric motor with instant start.
The low-kickback, 10-inch bar and chain functions to make those pruning and lopping jobs much easier. With the pole saw’s easy flip and lock clamps, the pole can be secured for stability, and they are easily disconnected so you can proceed with cutting up the downed tree limbs.
The Remington RM1025SPS Chainsaw/Pole Saw’s non-slip grip provides comfort as well as confidence for controlling the saw in those tight areas, and the adjustable upper and lower aluminum poles are designed to be anti-rotation, for a stable performance. Removing hard-to-reach branches will always be a project for anyone who has trees to prune. The 2-in-1 Ranger pole saw/chainsaw is two saws in one and converts easily with no tooled required.
The polesaw, with its hexagonal-shaped aluminum poles that extend and retract, have locking sections on the fiberglass section ends gives you the extra height you need to perform these tasks efficiently and quickly. Then, switch to the chainsaw to cut up those downed branches. The saw itself can be easily removed from the pole to be used as a small chainsaw on the ground pole free.
Another nice feature about this nifty pole saw and chain saw combo is it is relatively lightweight at 11 pounds, which means you don’t have to be Mr. or Mrs. Universe to handle this saw. Good to know if you really don’t want to break a sweat with your sawing job! The lightweight quality makes lifting this unit up into high areas much easier.
And we noticed that the motor is relatively quiet – making for a nice option if you live in a quiet neighborhood. The only drawback we have seen is oil will leak from the reservoir when it is stored, but this is easily remedied by draining the oil after use. The reservoir is small, so this should be relatively easy.
Choosing an electric saw is also an eco-friendly choice. Unlike gas powered chainsaws, there are none of those nasty emissions and no messy oil and gas mixing. Just fill the reservoir and push the bulb to activate before each major cut. When compared to other chain saws, a battery-powered saw such as the Remington RM1025SPS Chainsaw/Pole Saw has minimal operating costs.
As time and technology improves in the arena of chainsaws, we are seeing more and more eco-conscious consumers toss away their gas guzzling saws and switch to battery-powered chainsaws because they are cleaner, more environmentally-friendly, and they are less expensive to operate.

Why We Liked It
Having a combo chainsaw / pole saw all in one was very ideal as we worked to fell some high branches and cut limbs. It was easy to assemble and lift and the polesaw cut through branches like a dream for about an hour’s work. After that we simply unlocked the clamps and converted this back into a chainsaw, that cut down the timber with no issues. The comfortable handle felt good to the grip, and being lightweight didn’t wear us out after a long duration of lifting.
The overall feel of the unit was sturdy yet powerful. The instant start, and power-packed 8-amp electric motor let us saw right through through tree limbs relatively fast. The low kickback provided stability and sturdiness to the overall unit – important to have, especially if you are balanced on a ladder. We recommend this as a great two-in-one saw for tackling a full yard work pruning and cutting project from start to finish.
