Could Be Even Better ~ reviewed by tomo
Use the pruning saw to cut a 3″ branch other tree trimming. I was pleasantly surprised how effortless the sawing was. Very sharp blade. I noticed that the wing nut holding the blade in place loosens unless it’s really tightened. My old Sears folding saw came with a cardboard sheathe and the blade could be set in various positions. This is a great cutting saw, regardless.
Very Good Buy ~ reviewed by Damian
Excellent tool for the gardener or landscaper. It is very portable, can be easily attached to tool or regular belt. It folds into handle so minimizes risk of injury when not in use. Blade locks when extended and is very sharp – easily cuts through green or dead branches up to 4″ circumference. Larger branches will take a bit more time but are not a big problem. For strictly home gardening use, if pruning mature trees is not a requirement, would recommed a saw with a shorter blade – 8″ or so.
This is a great item for the price. Well balanced, long enough to do some serious damage to those pesky blackberry bushes! ~ reviewed by Shelly
This item is very impressive for the price. I am very happy and thoroughly satisfied with how it takes care of the thicket even though I haven’t sharpened it!
Chop, Chop, Chop ~ reviewed by jtshellnc
I have an overgrown thicket of weeds in my back yard and I needed a way to chop weeds and branches down that were too thick for a weedeater and this has done the trick. You do need to sharpen the blade upon initial use, but that is to be expected. The handle is very sturdy and comfortable to use, like a thick butcher knife.
Concerned customer ~ reviewed by Sharon L.
The saw arrived in good time – it did not seem to be wrapped very protectively – however,
my main concern is that there is no locking device to hold the saw intact when it is open -
just a screw which requires another tool (pliers) if one doesn’t have very strong
hands – which I don’t.
