This heat treated saw blade cuts up to 6 times faster than a traditional handsaw. For ground level work, fix a handle (included) to each end and pull back and forth with slow steady strokes. For high growth throw the weighted rope over the limb first and pull up the chainsaw. The “Trueguide” will automatically place the teeth onto the branch at the correct cutting position. Using both ropes saw, as previous. For root pruning the bare minimum of excavation is necessary. Only sufficient access for the blade to pass under the root is required. Can also be used for prepared timber.
