Question about Remington Electric Pole Saw

Open Question

Used my saw on one limb and it quit

I cut one limb about 2 inch in diameter and did not get it into a bind but now it does nothing. Was this a common problem because I see a lot of them for sale as reconditioned. ( 10 inch electric pole saw) What can I do to get it fixed since the place I bought it is out of business. Thanks John M.

Sounds like the sprocket could be stripped. If so, then you would need to replace the sproket. I suggest you contact Master Parts at 800-466-1446 or online at www.masterparts.net. They may be able to help you.

Check in the handle, the wire connection to the electrical switch could have came loose or disconnected. The switch may need to be replaced. Maybe part of the cord went bad, but I would think that would be less likely, but possible if you had a electrical surge.

If the wire connection is okay, then I suggest you try to purchase a new switch part # 077525S, that may do the trick. You can by one by calling Master Distributors at 800-446-1446 or you can find them online at www.masterparts.net. I hope this helps!

Parts for these machines are not being manufactured any more as the company has ceased operations. Search the internet for companies that advertise these parts--you may get lucky! On the motor--check the brushes as they seem to fail often. Good luck!

SOURCE: what's the best way to use my 16 in electric saw

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.

What is the best chainsaw for a female to use, need easy start, no electrical?


None, they are too dangerous. You need strong arms in case of kick back.

But if you must, a national and well known brand like Stihl or Husquvarna. The Stihl MS170 might suit you.

"I am very satisfied with every aspect of this saw and love how light weight it is. It starts easily and runs great. I have cut up to 16 inch diameter oak, and it did a great job, considering the size of the saw. The local dealer was very knowledgeable and very helpful."

-Dick44
Kelseyville, CA

The STIHL MS 170 is the perfect lightweight chainsaw for homeowners seeking a great value. Compact, lightweight with just the right amount of power, the MS 170 makes quick work of trimming or cutting small trees, fallen limbs after a storm, and other tasks around the yard. And even at its great price, the MS 170 has many of the same design features the professionals depend on.

Please make sure you also get the safety gear. Vibration proof gloves to stop 'white finger', hard hat, visor, ear defenders, and most importantly chainsaw pants which has carbon fibres to jam the chain rather than cutting your leg off.

Tried chain saw. Working on limbs about 12 ft above ground.
First limb about 3 inches diameter, Oak. Worked fine.
Second limb same size. Cutter slip off branch could not stop the saw from hitting ground. Broke case where it attaches to pole.
No parts, and no way to repair it as company had no idea what kind of cement/glue I could use. So one branch cost me $120.00.

Like Robert my saw hit the ground and busted in the same spot (this will happen to you sooner or later) and you can not get repair parts, its now a door stop.
Pros: Easy To Use, Light Weight
Cons: Can Not Get Repair Parts
I am guessing you mean the entire cutting end of the saw too, I would get a new one either same model so you have a spare pole or find a another brand that definatly sells spare parts.
Ive never used a electric polesaw but have done alot of work with with longer petrol and shorter hydrolic polesaws, even top of the range they can be broken easily always keep the chain sharp, cut one branch at a time or small clumps on a hedge.
Commonly they get dropped cause they get really heavy extended a shoulder belt helps alot as do coffee breaks.
Or they get jammed in the branch being cut which can be really dangerous with a half cut branch, be ready to run.
Also never use from a ladder

Saw works but stops when I begin cutting a limb. Model # 104316-04 Thank you in advance. Joe Alcamo


Hi, make sure the chain is not on too tight, It should lift from the bar about a quarter inch. Also if there is a chain brake make sure that it is disengaged. If the chain stops but the saw is revving high then there may be a worn out clutch that needs to be replaced. Finally make sure the limb that you are cutting is not binding the chain under its' own weight.

Love my little Remington pole saw, but motor overheated last weekend and I'm concerned about source of problem. Motor smoked and speed seems somewhat slower. Fewer than two or three dozen branches cut;...


I would guess that your motor overheated and is now on its way out. The extension cords might have contributed to the problem, not sure though. There would have been some drop in current for the 100' but the over heating is probably due to usage that was just too much for this light weight saw. You might be able to find a new motor.

Mcculloch EM250-14 RPM Slowed suddenly


The chain must be properly sharpened to cut efficiently and the oil pump must be feeding oil to the chain/bar. Check the oiling by running the saw with the bar tip near some cardboard for a few moments--it should throw off a thin line of oil on to the cardboard. If not, remove the bar and chain and run the motor for a few moments--it should ooze oil out of a side port that exits near the drive end of the bar. If still nothing, check the oil tank filter for plugging, then the oil pump itself--it may have a plastic gear that has stripped it's teeth. Once you get oil from the side port, clean the oil passages in the drive end of the bar, and reinstall the bar and chain. Hope this helps!

When i use the electric saw and put a load on the chain it stops


The problem you have isnt adequately explained.

  1. You may be tripping a thermal overload.
  2. The chain may be to agressive and overpower the motor.
  3. The chain may be excessively tight, that combined with the load may be the cause.
  4. Limbs as the cut progresses, pinch the bar and chain.
  5. No bar oil or defective oiler.
  6. If equipped with a clutch it may be slipping.
There are other causal factors too. Read your manual, limbs require 2 cuts, the first from the bottom about ½ way through, then offset a couple of inches toward the trunk from the top . HTH
