The new Dewalt cordless pole saw looks a lot like the new Craftsman V20 model (CMCCSP20), but there seem to be a couple of upgrades. For example, the Dewalt branch hook looks to be metal, and the Craftsman plastic. The Dewalt also features a brushless motor, and the Craftsman seems to have a brushed motor.
The Craftsman pole saw is $149 for the 1-battery kit.
