Sun Joe SWJ800E Review
Snow Joe + Sun Joe, the company behind the Sun Joe SWJ800E, is a relative new comer in the power tools industry. They were founded in 2004 with only one tool, the electric snow shovel the Snow Joe.
However, over the years they have consistently produced high-quality power tools at an affordable rate.
The Sun Joe SWJ800E features an 8 inch Oregon cutting bar and chain with a telescoping pole that expands to almost 9 feet with an overhead reach of 15 feet.
The SWJ800E is engineered with the common automatic chain lubrication system with a translucent window for the oil reservoir. It it also comes with a lock for the pole that makes it easy to adjust, tighten, and secure firmly.
The unit has a 6.5 amp motor and can cut through tree limbs of up to 7.5 inches. It also has a dry weight of 7 pounds which makes it ideal for lifting and maneuvering through hanging branches with the 15 foot reach.
Snow Joe + Sun Joe also offer a no questions asked two-year full warranty. The longer warranty is usually indicative of a company that has faith in the tools they sell.
A common issue related to electric chainsaws are oil leaks from the chain oil reservoir; this unit is no exemption to that problem. This unit also heats up rather quickly and heat buildup can cause the chain to loosen.
This unit is also a dedicated pole saw as apposed to a detachable electric chainsaw with a telescoping pole.
- Pros: 8 Inch Oregon bar. 15 ft overhead reach. Only 7 lbs.
- Cons: Issues related to chain oil leaking
