Bad brushes in extending Remenington pole chain saw

I have the extending Remenington pole chain saw - the chain saw that attachs is a little 8 inch job. The electrical contact brushes have broken and therefore the saw no longer runs. I have been looking all over to see if I can get the replacement brush set, but it looks like Remenington is going defunct - I have tried a couple of places that listed the part, but they say they can no longer get them. Do you think I should try and find a small electrical appliance repair guy hoping they can rig something up? Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

You already know Remington(Power) is no longer in production. You may not know all replacement parts are very difficult to find and this brand requires a constant supply of them. I think you are going to invest time and money in a saw that next week will need a part you cannot locate or manufacture.

IMO your time and money will be better spent on a name brand replacement saw. Wen produced a quality product in the past and are again offering electric and petrol chainsaws. If available in your area, a critical examination discloses a quality product, and you are willing to gamble on them remaining in business they are a good alternative. We rarely get questions for McCulloch or Poulan. I do not foresee their stopping production within my life time and should also be considered.

If you have more questions or need additional help please reply below and I will get back to you. HTH & Good Luck.

Our local Ace Hardware store has a box of different sizes of motor brushes. See if a store in your area has one or can obtain one. Check with an electric tool repair facility to see if they may have something similar that fits a drill or other appliance. Good luck! (buy extras!)

Robert

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

The switch of the saw is not working 00


You need an AC voltmeter to trace the problem with the switch. It can also be a bad motor brush/spring--these saws are great for killing motor brushes, and there are virtually no replacements available as Remington has ceased saw operations. If it is a bad brush, visit an electrical tool shop to see if they have something that will work from a different brand of tool. Good luck!

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!

REMINGTON POLE CHAIN SAW


The chain has to be tensioned when replaced. You lift the chain away from the bar about halfway and the tangs that run in the bar should just almost come out of the groove. There is a screw that extends the bar near where it attaches near the sprocket. adjust that with the bar mounting nuts not quite tight till the chain is tensioned correctely.

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.
