Pole Saw Sprocket Cover

  • Under Consideration
EGO should consider offering an all metal Pole Saw Sprocket cover, as an upgrade, or better yet, putting it on the pole saw as original equipment.  The light duty plastic one may hold up, if one is cutting twigs, but bigger limbs, can easily take chunks out of the plastic cover.  I am going to have to fabricate a metal shield, for the cover, or continue purchasing $15 replacement covers.  I really like the pole saws cutting speed, and the tool in general, but the plastic sprocket cover, and the temperamental chain oiler, are serious dings to any recommendation I may provide.

Randy, thanks for the heads up; I'm a light user, so haven't experienced this.

This is a concern of mine as well, but I haven't broken a cover yet.

Absolute need. Cheap plastic cover gets torn up if chain displaces from bar. EGO products are great, the pole saw is a wonderful tool, shouldn’t cheap out on this cover. Also, the hex nut and drive screw tool is easily lost if cutting in brush, the band to retain it should be at the handle, not the saw end. Lost mine, cannot find how to replace.
