pole pruner adapter question
Does anyone know why no pole pruner manufacturer makes a head that attaches to the bog standard fiberglass poles found at HD, Lowes, et al. They have a standard thread called an acme with maybe 5 threads per inch? I just called this place:
And they seemed totally nonplussed by my question. Like it had never been asked before. Amusingly, the pole manufacturer is totally mum on this use:
search for "pruner" or "pruning" and nothing comes up. Maybe a liability issue? Maybe horticultural poles cost more because they have to pay more product liability insurance?
I'm annoyed because when I bought the 24' pole I have at HD, I just assumed you'd be able to attach things like that to it. Sure it's a little flimsier, but if you leave about 2' non-extended on each shaft, it's more rigid, and would probably be able to trim a softwood tree branch
