The saw came with a Throw bag, Handles, and Rope with saw attached.
The Throw bag work flawlessly. Two tries and I had made the branch. After drawing the saw up for the cutting that is where the "Almost the right tool" comes into play.
The Righting Weight at the end of the saw wasn't heavy enough to flip the cutting blades into the right position. So after many rope twisting, twirling, flipping efforts the blades were orientated correctly.
I began to pull on the ropes and after a few tries where the blade flipped onto the wrong side. I finally got a good bite and began sawing. I eventually needed another body to get the proper cutting angle and the saw was working well until the limb pinched the blade which halted the cutting. At that point the limb had been cut enough that the weight of the limb with a little shaking brought it down.
The unfortunate consequence was that the saw broke when the pinched part hit the ground.
Overall the Professional High Limb Rope Cain Saw - 48in did the job, but it was difficult getting it into position. Cutting teeth on both sides of the saw would eliminate the need for the useless weight, and make it easier to position. When the saw gets cutting it worked great until it got pinched by the limb. It was the tool for the job almost.
I give high marks 5 STARS to the Throw Bag. It has come in handy on several occasions where I have to get a rope up high. It continues to work flawlessly.
The downside, some of the limbs we were trying to trim were about 30' up. It took a lot to finally get the weight bag over a limb. It's harder than you might think. Then there's the problem of getting the chain right side up. There's a weight on the chain that's supposed to make that automatic, but you'll either have to be patient and try several times to get it right or add some weight to the bar.
A large limb may work best with two cuts, but the chain does most of the work.
Amazing and safer than climbing a tree. Very happy with this.
Cons: Clip for bean bag isn't strong enough.
Note: Really a two-person tool for anything over 15 ft high.
Bought this to trim branches hanging over a basketball/tennis court, and to get some dead limbs out of pine trees, etc. It only takes a few minutes to get good at throwing the bag over the limb. We did have some issues with getting the chain to flip "cut side down", but with two people, and holding the right tension on the ropes, you can make it work without too much effort.
The only thing keeping this from getting 5 stars is the clip for the bean-bag weight. It's a little cheap/weak, and it bent the first time the bean bag got stuck on a limb. I'll be replacing the clip with a caribiner, which should solve that problem.
Once the rope is over & the saw blade is oriented correctly, it doesn't take long to cut through the limb. Didn't have a problem with the saw getting pinched, but most of my branches were weak/dead when I cut them.
As others have mentioned, having a second person makes this tool MUCH easier to use. You can get the right cutting angles against the limb, especially high ones, and not be directly underneath it where it could fall on you. Make sure to wear eye protection when using this -- not only for the sawdust from the sawing, but also for any small branches that may come off on the way down.

Is not ease to work. As many have mentioned the weight bar is too light so I had to add a extra wight (was taped on to bar) to get it to flip over to get the cutting teeth right... Read morePublished 1 month ago by Steve Boutelle
