DocaPole GoSaw Tips and Tricks
1.) Extend and use the lower pole segments first if full extension is not required. These segments are thicker and stronger and will provide the best sawing experience.
2.) To minimize pole bend when not using at full extension, leave about 6” of overlap between pole segments by not extending them all the way.
3.) Let the GoSaw's sharp teeth do the work. Focus on the saw's up and down motion and not on trying to press the saw into the wood.
4.) Only screw the GoSaw onto the pole’s metal tip. Some poles come with a separate plastic hinge tip. This plastic tip is perfect for use with cleaning attachments but is not intended for tree pruning.
5.) After screwing the GoSaw onto the pole, use a screwdriver to tighten the locking screw at the base of the GoSaw. This will further secure the GoSaw onto the end of the pole.
6.) If any pole segments begin to slip, use a screwdriver to tighten the locking clasps on the pole. These can be adjusted as needed to increase or reduce tension.
7.) Be safe. Tree pruning can be a dangerous activity. Always be sure to wear gloves and eye protection. Always be vigilant for falling branches.
