Electric Pole Saw

Can anyone recommend an electric (not battery powered) pole saw?

I had one many moons ago that was just a fiberglass pole that held a small electric chainsaw. You could work the trigger from the bottom of the handle, but you could also remove the "top" and use it as a standard handheld chainsaw.

It was a little cumbersome, but i loved the versatility of being able to remove the pole.

It was a Remmington, looked a lot like this one http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/tech-data/B00008ZOXX

I liked it, and it looks like the linked one gets pretty good reviews

I have that saw, and I really like it.
I use it much more often than my gas chainsaw.

i had one that worked really well but i can remember the brand. i just bought a Poulan that i hate. no mater how tight you make the "coupling"on the pole, the saw will twist or rotate on the pole. removing the saw from the pole is a PITA too.

I have a Homelite, and absolutely love it. I got it on sale several years ago for (I think) right about $89.

It only has about a 10" bar on it, but I'm absolutely amazed by what I can cut with it.

I'm sure it's not made by Homelite, so there are probably about 10 brands that are actually the same saw.

I have the 10" Remington - can be used with or without the pole. Don't use it often, but when needed it's great. Have done a few jobs with it over the years that one would have thought well exceeded it's usage scope, but it's done a great job.
