By Anthony Capkun
October 26, 2013 – Burndy released its new HPS-LW series lightweight hydraulic pole saw series.
This series is lighter, more ergonomic and robust than previous versions, insists Burndy. It offers a smaller pole diameter and several new features, including a trigger safety mechanism, branch hook and reinforced stabilizers at hose connection stress points. Additionally, the motor and trigger housings are CNC-machined from aircraft-grade aluminum to provide tighter assembly tolerances, says the company. This series is offered in two overall lengths: 71 in. and 83 in.
