>From Lee in Tennessee:
I don't know the amp rating for the rotary inverter.
But I have used my inverter for about 20 years, mostly for electric chain
saws which I believe are rated 10 or 12 amps. Until this year, I cut all
my firewood this way. I heat my home exclusively with wood, using 6-8
ricks a year. I don't think you'd have any trouble with your pole saw.
I also use it for my weed whacker/tiller (Ryobi electric) and my leaf
blower (Craftsman, which came with a bum switch, had to install a toggle on
it) and various other things from time to time.
I did have to 'reglue' one of the permanent magnets in it a few years ago.
And I had to install a new power cord. Other than that I've had no problems
Suggestion. I built a platform for it that mounts on the front of the
tractor which has been real handy.
