385-6T and 386-6T

385 and 386-6T Bahco Pole Saws

The 385 and 386 Pole saws are ideal for any pruning that has to be done at heights over 3m. They are supplied with a steel tube handle so they can be used with 25mm diameter extention or telescopic poles [See below]

The blade tip on these 2 models is extended into a hook to prevent the blade sliding out of the kerf while you are sawing.
TIP : This hook also comes in handy if you want to pull some branches out of the canopy after they have been cut.

There is a striking knife attached to the blade and handle to cut the bark before sawing through the branch, this will prevents the bark stripping and leaving your tree with an unsightly wound.

The 385 saw has fileable teeth.
The 386 saw has hard point teeth, which stay sharp 4 times longer.

Spare Blades as well as sockets are available for pole saws.

Various functions of a good saw tooth

Bahco pruning saws feature precision ground teeth, which give the saw blade the correct surface for the 3 functions of a good saw tooth :

PHASE 1 - The grains are cut off.

Only 0.2mm of the tooth is used for this function, which is done by the sharp, ground tip.

PHASE 2 - The grains are now broken to come loose.

This is done by the sharp, ground edge of the tooth.

PHASE 3 - The wooden chips are transported out of the kerf.

For this to happen, an open and smooth ground surface is needed in the gullet.

Bahco saw teeth are precision ground from tip to gullet, to carry out these functions succesfully and give you, the user, maximum efficiency while cutting.
Saws are protected from rust during transportation as they are covered with a protective layer of environmentally friendly plastic.
