Fully extended the pole plus hedge trimmer is 6' 8.5" in length - good luck if you think you can use it horizontally while holding the trigger handle!
With all three parts assembled, the tip to tip length is 80". with the extendable section at minimum length, it is 68", with the extendable section removed, it is 33 inches. The extendable section itself is at minimum 35 inches and when fully extended it is 47 inches. No where did I measure 8' or 96 inches. Even at the 80" maximum length, the included handle takes some length. This is not a one handed machine. Practically, to get to 8', a ladder is needed. I did not measure the length including the cord, which is short, but even that won't make 8". For the given intent, it is a good machine.
The complete unit with the extension pole is approximately 6' long.
