I just had my Rem. EL-8 (Mod#107624-02, 3 HP 11.5Amp) quit, too. It was less than 2yrs old, had very low hours and no abuse. I pulled it apart and found that a motor brush was burned out (at the brush electrical lead; the braided wire connecting to the winding). Unfortunately, I checked with Master Distributors ( ) and the brush assembly is no longer available. (For a less than 2-year old saw!!) They do have some parts for Remington saws, however.

Premature burnout seems to be a function of some combination of:
- using a too-light gauge extension cord for the amperage of your tool / length of extension. You can find recommendations for proper minimum gauge on the web. (This shouldn't have been the problem in my case because I used a 12-ga. 25' extension.) See:
- running too hard (big wood) for too long. I admit this seems pretty subjective; if the saw is cutting, why quit, right? But it's probably important to ease up and not let it get too hot.
- poor saw design. (internal parts don't match the power/amperage involved.)

Remington pole chain saw, won't engage with throttle control at end of pole

For those of us who want control and versatility in their pole saw - Remington is a sure winner. It is a 2-in-1 pole saw that can be detached from the pole quite easily.

What's the best way to use my 16 in electric saw to cut off tree limbs?

This is somewhat subjective. Eveybody does it a little different.If you are cutting limbs from a tree, start an undercut about where you want the limb to fall free of the tree. Use the upper edge of the chain to cut it about a fourth of the way through. Then start from the top of the limb over where you made the undercut.

Am I wise to purchase a Remington Pole Saw or should look for another manufacturer? Which Remington Pole Saw would you purchase: a. 18V Cordless b. 10" Electric

Remington Saws have ceased operations and, unless you like to make your own replacement parts, they are prone to failure. The gearbox is sealed and the motor brushes are not available anywhere. Look elsewhere!

After cutting down a tree, my chain stopped or became jammed and now the chain is loosely hanging. How do I adjust the chain to get it back to working order?

Remove the cover on the chain side of the saw and loosen the bar and slide it out to take out the chain slack. leave a little slack to allow for free movement.

Good luck and be careful.

Does my remington chain saw model #m15014AS go with the remington ext.pole model #rps96

No, the largest electric pole chain saw that can be attached to a pole with the Remington Pole Saw kit, is a 10" saw.

You can go to Master Distributors to find out more detailed info about your situation and speak with one of their reps.

Hope you found this very helpful, best regards!
