Product Description

LET GRAVITY DO THE WORK™  The Sun Joe® Saw Joe SWJ800E pole chain saw takes the danger and difficulty out of trimming your overgrown trees. Stand safely on solid ground while adjusting Saw Joe's telescoping pole to gain up to 15 feet of overhead reach!


Powered by a robust 6.5-amp motor, the SWJ800E can handle the most stubborn tree limbs up to 7.5-inches thick. This pole chain saw features an 8-inch Oregon bar and chain with an auto-oiler to keep the bar and chain fully lubricated during use. Chain tensioning is equally effortless, requiring just a turn of a screw.


Unlike gas-powered tools, the Saw Joe is powered electrically, so you’ll reliably power up with the push of a button without having to deal with smoke, fumes, unpredictable starters or costly tune-ups. Plus the SWJ800E comes equipped with a built-in safety switch to prevent accidental starting. Saw Joe is CSA-approved and carries a full two-year warranty.

What are the best uses for my SWJ800E Pole Chain Saw?

  1. Cut hanging branches over walkways and entranceways
  2. Get rid of branches too close to your roof to protect your home in advance of weather hazards
  3. Safely trim limbs hanging in rain gutters to prevent clogging and damage
  4. Trim away overgrown branches on trees to beautify your property and create a cleaner, brighter and more spacious outdoor living space
  5. Cut branches that block sunlight from nourishing your garden and flower beds
  6. As a quicker and safer alternative to using a ladder and a hand saw
  7. Protect ground level amenities (e.g. clear space over your swing-set, remove hazards from above your carport, prevent debris from littering your pool, etc.)
  8. Instead of a traditional chainsaw to cut bundles of branches or clean up broken tree limbs
  9. No need for a smoke mask, ear protection, gas can, gasoline, 2-cycle oil, ethanol-shield fuel additive, carburetor clean-out, sparkplug replacement, and seasonal fuel preservatives and stabilizers (a one-time fuel savings alone of at least $25)
  10. Avoid renting a bucket lift, scissor lift, or boom lift to safely reach tall limbs

How do I clean debris/residue from inside the unit?

  1. Using the supplied flat-tip blade screwdriver, remove the end cover nut cap from the chain/sprocket end cover to expose the end cover nut.
  2. Using the supplied hex key wrench, unscrew the end cover nut and remove the chain/sprocket end cover.
  3. Remove any debris trapped under the end cover, around the sprocket, and between the chain links. If available, use compressed air to remove any fine debris from the mounting surface, bar, and chain.
  4. If necessary, remove the cutting bar and chain from the mounting surface to clean any residue, then replace.
  5. Replace the chain/sprocket end cover by inserting the rear tab of the end cover first into the rear tab slot on the mounting surface, and position the cover onto the saw head.
  6. Tighten the end cover nut by hand. Remove all slack from the chain by turning the chain tension screw clockwise until the chain seats snugly against the bar with the drive links in the bar groove.
  7. Tighten the end cover nut using the hex key wrench, then replace the end cover nut cap to secure the chain/sprocket end cover.
