You know, it is soooo funny you should say this because just a few weeks ago, when I was taking apart the cherry that got split in the wind, my neighbor (who is doing major remodeling work), came over with his SawsAll and cut down a big limb that would have taken me a half hour to get thru with a hand saw. He suggested I get one too because they are so versatile. I am definitely going to check this out. I've been renting a small batterypowered chain saw and it is very nice to use and can get thru some really big stuff. I will NEVER use a gas powered one again...we had one for a while and it was noisy, complicated, terrifying and always a hassle to get started. THANKS!
