Customer Questions & Answers

Customer Reviews

Your able to get the branches that are high up without climbing into the tree.
D. Herrmann
The bar that turned the chain saw blade to face the tree took way too many tries to get the blade facing toward the branch.
Edward F. Moorhead Jr.
This device is cheaply made and did not arrive in the retail packaging pictured.

Supplemental Practical Operating Instructions

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.

1. Use a second 3/16 or 1/4-inch throwing rope 25-30 ft long.

I had some dead trees in my yard that threatened to fall over and hit my house every time it got a little windy. Having never used a gas or electric chain saw I was a little hesitant to rent one and cut down the trees. I used this saw to cut down the limbs atop the trees so that if they were to fall they wouldn't come near my house.

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.

It is poorly designed with widely spaced teeth on just one side. It is almost impossible to orient the chain with the teeth touching the limb. The chain has a natural tendency to place the teeth facing up away from the limb.
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.

This is a good tool that does what it is supposed to do, but sawing tree limbs with this tool can be hard, frustrating, and time consuming work. Therefore, the user should be convinced that the "High Limb Chain Saw" is preferable to calling a tree service. I recently attacked several tree limbs which were 15 to 20 ft off the ground and connected to trees which are 30 to 60 feet tall. I suggest that a separate rope be used to throw the "toss weight" as the weight can get stuck in the branches. Furthermore, a good pair of gloves is mandatory. If you can achieve the "correct angle" by placing the saw where the branch meets the trunk, and have plenty of room, then everything works smoothly but with effort. If the target branches are intermixed with the canopy, then the process becomes more complicated, blade orientation becomes a problem and, as mentioned in other reviews, patience is required. I approached the bag toss as sport as I missed more than I connected. Undercutting to avoid peeling of the bark is not always possible, so the branches may not fall and may have to be pulled down separately via a rope. Rope management is important and chain saw blades bring their own set of problems, e.g. only bend in two directions and dealing with kinks can be like dealing with a bag full of triple fish hooks. Besides taking me away from the sedentary activities that were beckoning, the saw made economic sense to me and the job got done and I enjoyed the work. I suggest the user maintain a store of refreshments.

This is a great tool for the homeowner. Saved me hundreds of $'s after just one storm. Didn't have to call in the tree guys after the Halloween snow storm here to clean up cracked, but not yet fallen, tree limbs 15-20 feet off the ground. Didn't have to take my chain saw up the ladder, like a crazy person would have, either. Works much better with two people, believe me. My son and I made easy work of 6" tree limbs. Plus my wife and daughter were very entertained by our efforts, rolling on the lawn laughing. What with global warming almost assuring us we will have more and more severe storms, this is a must have tool for the 21st century.
