1. Swing lasso weight in under-hand bowling-ball motion, with 2-3 ft cord extension, upward, slightly above and beyond target branch (practice).
2. Cut as close to base of target branch as possible; cut perpendicular to length of target branch - - - not perpendicular to the tree trunk.
3. Hold equal lengths of rope arms length & shoulder high from the cut with chain squarely over target branch; wrap each pull stick (using a clove hitch - - - which can be easily loosened for up-down adjustments; realknots.com).
4. FLIP TAB down, pull each stroke singularly and deliberately - - - pause between each stroke to allow rope vibrations to dampen out. Patience! Chain should bite and jerk from cutting resistance; if not, the chain is upside-down - - - pull chain past the cut and then back over cut to flip it into cutting position.
5. WHEN chain binds in the cut: move to the extreme right and violently jerk on the pull ropes in a saw-stroke; (still stuck) move to the extreme left and repeat; resume center position when freed.
6. The higher the branch, the narrower the possible undercut angle. Due to branch flexure, chain saw may bind in the cut. Prevent beforehand by supporting target branch from below, or with a rope sling - - - not possible? - - - to free bind, a second weighted rope should be thrown outboard of the cut to pull the cut open, allowing further sawing or freeing of chain; CAUTION: target branch can be pulled down - - - observe safe distances from falling target branch.
Functional Saw Improvements ((McMaster-Carr Supply: mcmaster.com))
1. Use a second 3/16 or 1/4-inch throwing rope 25-30 ft long.Read more ›
The saw was easy to use and made short work of the smaller limbs. The larger limbs took a little more elbow grease but the saw eventually got the job done.
Although I've had no problems with the saw I can see that where the rope meets the chain is fraying just a bit. I suspect that it's due in part to me going a little beyond the limb circumference the saw is deigned for. Replacing the rope seems like it would be relatively easy and inexpensive.
The chain needs more cutting teeth to give it smooth action without getting wedged in the cut. A commando wire saw works better.
The weak clip holding the throwing bag to the rope failed the first time the bag got snagged on a 1/4" limb. I replaced it with real rope clip.
I had to add 5" long handles to the rope to develop enough pulling force.

Binded a few times when used by myself. Worked much better when my son and I spread apart. Large branches and small all came down. 5 inch oak branch took about 15 minutes. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Moxcoak

Practice on smaller lower branches before trying to use it on higher branches. Ropes are hard to hold even with leather gloves. Using it takes upper arm strength.Published 2 months ago by MS Southern
