Why doesn't EGO offer an eight or nine or ten foot extension pole for its tree saw?  A 31 inch extension just isn't adequate.  Many of your competitors offer such an extension.

The powerhead and pole saw measure 91" 

The extension adds 31"

Total 122" or 10 feet. 

Based on reports of users it can become difficult to use at this length unless using it almost completely vertical.  Those that have added a second extension (not recommended by the manufacturer) state the same issues with ability to handle the tool compound as it length grows.

So, they do offer a 10 foot total length pole saw and probably do not offer any more as its safety and usability are questionable.
