REVIEW – Not too long ago, I was fortunate enough to set to review the LiTHELi cordless battery-powered chainsaw and it turned out to be a fantastic product. Once again, good fortune has provided me with the opportunity to test and review another cordless battery-powered tool. It is the LiTHELi 40V Cordless Pole Saw. Let’s see if good quality also exists for this tool!!
What is it?
The LiTHELi 40V Cordless Pole Saw features a 10-inch blade, a 4-position adjustable head, and a telescopic rod. A 2.5AH Battery and Charger are included.

This pole saw is made from metal (aluminum), and plastic including what seems to be ABS plastic. The following photos show all of the design and controls on the tool as well as an illustration identifying all of the parts.
LiTHELi also includes a battery and battery charger along with a shoulder strap.
The first thing that I did was lay all of the parts out on my deck so that I could easily proceed with assembly.
Assembly starts with attaching the Guide Bar and Saw Chain to the motor.
The picture above may look like the picture below but there is one difference. Above, I installed the chain in the wrong direction. Below I corrected my mistake. Unfortunately for me, I only realized it after I tried to cut a branch and could not 🙂
The rest of the photos below show my process to fill the reservoir with Bar and Chain oil. I cut the top off of a water bottle to use as a container to soak the chain in the oil overnight and to pour the oil.
Once I finished with the assembly of the Guide Bar and Saw Chain, I moved onto attaching the motor head to the extension rod and the rest of the body of the pole saw. As shown below, there is a plug that connects with the pole and it only inserts one way so you cannot make a mistake. The lever on the side of the pole allows for extension/retraction of the pole. Photos below also show the simple connection of the battery to the tool.
Finally, here is the Pole Saw in action:
What I like
- The ease of assembly
- The lightweight but sturdy build quality
- The ease of operation
- The cutting power
- The fact that is it battery-powered
What I’d change
- Include a small bottle of Bar and Chain oil so that the tool can be used right out of the box
Once again LiTHELi has manufactured a useful tool that is built well and works great. Prior to reviewing their chainsaw, I knew nothing about this company. Just like their chainsaw, IMHO this pole saw is an absolute winner. Well done and two thumbs up!!
