Sun Joe SWJ800E

Our Rating


If you are hoping to purchase a pole chainsaw with a tight budget, you should consider purchasing one that is lightweight, since it will be easier to balance. This pole chain is an 8 inch Oregon cutting bar and chain with a telescoping pole that expands to almost 9 feet and it even has an overhead reach of up to 15 feet, which saves you the trouble of having to climb up and down a ladder to reach the hanging limbs.

In addition to that, since it is powered by 6.5 amps, this unit can cut through tree limbs of up to 7.5 inches. It also has a dry weight of 7 pounds and a dimension that measures 68.5 x 5.9 x 3.3 inches, which makes it ideal for lifting and reaching through hanging branches. If you purchase this model, you are guaranteed a two-year full warranty from Saw Joe and coincidentally, this equipment is also CSA approved. The longer warranty is a telling signal that this company is truly confident about the quality of the product that they are selling.


The Sun Joe SWJ800E is engineered with the common chainsaw feature of an automatic chain lubrication system with a translucent window for the oil reservoir and it also comes with a lock for the pole that is quite simple to adjust, to tighten up, and to secure firmly. This might be the best, cheapest, and the lightest household pole chainsaw that you can buy in the market.


A common chainsaw related issue is the oil leaks from the chain oil reservoir; this unit is no exemption to that problem. This unit also heats up rather quickly and heat buildup will cause weakening of the bar and chain. The saw can be improved by allowing this unit to come as a detachable chainsaw. This possible improvement can also lead to the easier cleanup and maintenance of this unit and the efficiency of this product will be heightened if it can also function as a regular chainsaw.

Pros and cons

  • Automatic chain lubrication system
  • Locking mechanism
  • Relatively cheap
  • Despite the adjustable pole, it cannot be detached from the chainsaw
  • Heats up quickly
