The Hayauchi brings those difficult to reach branches within your reach and is the professionals first choice. This telescopic pole saw is easy in use and lightweight, so that you can prune trees all day long without getting tired. Let’s admit it, working with this piece of equipment is not quite the punishment, is it?
Pruning from a distance requires a reliable and versatile saw. The 480 mm long curved blade of the Hayauchi is equipped with Silky’s unique 4-RETSUME teeth. These cause a large wood removal, so that you can saw very rapidly through the thickest branches and gives you the flexibility to saw in all directions in relation to the wood grain. Ideal for the bigger jobs! The blade is adjustable in two different angles for both high and low pruning.
The two sickles on the blade cooperate for an optimal pruning result. With the lower sickle you can undercut the bark, so that this does not tear off the trunk when the branch falls. The upper sickle helps you to keep the blade in the sawing cut. You can also use the upper sickle to cut little twigs off the trunk or to pull little (dead) branches from the tree.
As the aluminum pole is oval-shaped, you have a very precise control over the direction of the blade, something you will need when pruning at great height. Moreover, this shape gives more strength and rigidity over the full length of the pole saw, and reduces bending to a minimum.
The two locking mechanisms (pushbuttons and levers) together create the safest and most stable locking of the preferred pole length. The lowest pole part is covered with rubber for a comfortable and safe grip. The bumper at the bottom protects the pole from bumps or thrusts.
Will you be using the Hayauchi for the first time? Start with lower branches to get familiar with the pruning technique and always think of your own safety. Wear a safety helmet and make sure you stand at a safe distance from falling branches.
The name Hayauchi is composed of the Japanese words for ‘fast’ (haya) and ‘sawing’ (uchi).
- HookFox to mount underneath the blade. With this hook you easily pull down sawn off branches that get stuck in the tree. Also handy to get your climbing rope up high in the tree.
- The blade of the Ibuki also fits on the Hayauchi. This blade has no sickles, which is an advantage when pruning in densely grown spaces such as tall fruit trees.
