POLE SAW - Forester Professional

Regular price $310.00
  • The SILKY FORESTER POLE SAW is a lightweight professional grade aluminum pole saw, available in two extenstion lengths - 3.0m and 4.5m. It  has a thick and long 380mm length blade (for more rigidity and cutting performance). The pole has a lever lock with spring loaded buttons at the end of each length. These push buttons allow multiple length adjustments, and safety clamps hold the extensions firmly in place. Compared with the Zubat pole saw series, the Forester becomes shorter because of having one more extension - which is great for storage. It has also been designed in a Red colour, so it is easy to find in thick bush and forest.

    There is also an extension pole saw safety instruction sheet attached - just click on the photo to the left to view.

  • Silky uses a significant amount of advanced technology in the design of each blade - adjusting the blade size and teeth configuration for a variety of uses. See the charts below for the configuration of this particular saw.     

    There are different size teeth across the Silky range of saws, depending upon their intended use. Refer to the Silky Teeth Configuration Chart to help ensure your blade has the best configuration for you.




    SILKY SAW TECHNOLOGY...

    ​SILKY saws work on the pull stroke, minimising effort and providing a smooth clean cut, maximising tree health. They can rip-cut, cross-cut and slant-cut. The hard chrome plating produces an exceedingly hard, durable surface, the replaceable blades are resistant to rust and the effects of resin, and they are finely or mirror polished and wipe clean easily.

    ​The Icons below describe the various features that make SIlky Saws so unique and high performing. Please view individual saw descriptions to determine which features relates to that specific model.

    Mirai-Me Smooth Cutting
    The teeth of the future! Silky blades have precision ground razor sharp teeth, with 4 cutting angles along their length. They leave an especially smooth surface after cutting and are ideal for pruning, greatly reducing the risk of infection. They can rip-cut, cross-cut and slant-cut.
    Non-Set Teeth
    The blades are made from SK-4 high carbon steel and are taper ground (i.e. thicker at the tooth edge and thinner at the back of the blade). This taper reduces resistance giving smoother, easier, and faster cutting performance. 
    Impluse Hardening
    Using a special high frequency heating technique, teeth are heated instantly and hardened. Because only the teeth are heated, the blade retains its normal flexibility. Hardened teeth stay sharp about 3 times longer than non-hardened teeth.
    Four Rows of Teeth
    Silky Saw teeth are set in such a way that there appears to be 4 rows of them. These are rough cutting hand saws for heavier tasks. They can rip-cut, cross-cut and slant-cut.
    Hard Chrome Plating
    Hard Chrome Plating produces an exceedingly hard and durable surface. The blades are resistant to rust and the effects of resin, and they are finely or mirror polished and wipe clean easily.
    Sharpenable
    Because impulse-hardening is not applied, the blades marked with this symbol can be sharpened with a file.
    Hard Chrome Plating
    Hard Chrome Plating produces an exceedingly hard and durable surface. The blades are resistant to rust and the effects of resin, and they are finely or mirror polished and wipe clean easily.
    Rubber Handles
    Almost all Silky Saws have rubber compound elastomer handles, either inserted or vulcanised to ABS plastic or steel. Rubber handles are more comfortable to hold, reduce vibration, and offer superior grip in the cold and wet.

     

    SILKY TEETH CONFIGURATIONS...

    The guide below refers to the numbers of teeth per 30mm on the blade. Each Silky blade is defined as having "Extra Large Teeth" to "Extra Fine Teeth" and the icons below are designed to help you identify the teeth configuration of every saw in the Silky range.

    Picture
    Extra Large Teeth
    Typically, this saw will be for use in forestry or heavy-duty arborist work. The teeth configuration will range between 3 and 7 teeth per 30mm and will give a very aggressive cut. In general you will be surprised by the smoothness of the cut.
    Large Teeth
    A saw with large teeth will be ideal for use in heavy/medium pruning tasks, root cutting, and construction. The number of teeth will range between 7 and 8 teeth per 30mm. An aggressive and smooth cut will be achieved.
    Medium Teeth
    Ideal for pruning work or construction, a medium teeth configuration usually has 10 teeth per 30mm and will give a cleaner finish when compared to larger teeth saws.
    Fine Teeth
    These saws are likely to be used for gardening and woodworking, and a fine teeth configuration typically comprises of 13 to 20 teeth per 30mm and will achieve a clean finish.
    Extra Fine Teeth
    These saws will have very fine teeth ideal for woodworking and carpentry, and range between 20 and 32 teeth per 30mm, and a very smooth finish can be expected.​
