  • I did think about it, but it is only 1.5M long. Just as easy to get up a tripod ladder for that.

    Jumping on the GTA26 thread though, mine is always throwing the chain off. I tighten the sprocket & 5 cuts later it is slack again. I don't know if the chain stretches as it heats up, like a normal chainsaw, or it is the bar. The chain & bar are getting on a bit but is still sharp. It's bloody annoying me on what is a brilliant bit of kit otherwise. I do have a new chain/bar I should really try!

      Chain does seem to stretch, presumably because there is no oiler like a normal saw

      • I gave up on my mine because of it, drove me mad , and chains ain't peanuts neither..

          They look good them gta's especially with the holster. But for close quarters pruning I use a makita rip saw with a wood blade very efficient with minimal fuss.

    • Never had the chain throw on mine.  Before use I losen the screw & then dangle the GTA whilst holding the end of the bar, then tighten it.  I keep mine very sharp & got the excellent Stihl 2 in1 sharpener.

      • +1 for that method of tensioning the chain. Regular oil and cleaning of the sprocket etc. I've found it to be a great bit of kit.
