Say hello to my little friend! This pruning saw made quick work taking down overgrowth on our cherry tree. 3, 4 and even 6 inch branches came down with little effort and the included battery lasted through the whole project on one charge. The small size lets me handle it with ease and also get into tight spots. The little oil reservoir was easy to fill with oil prior to the project and cleaning up the sawdust was easy with just a rag. Not having a cord was really convenient. Its just a really great little saw to have around for those projects where pruning shears won’t do the trick but a full size chainsaw would be overkill. Very good quality from this company, and the easy availability and interchangeability of batteries gives me piece of mind.

I purchased this pruning saw to see if it performs overall better than my M18 FUEL Hackzall with pruning blades. I own a few different size chainsaws but sometimes they are overkill for pruning or limbing up trees. I was using my FUEL Hackzall with Milwaukee pruning blades (48-00-1304), but the reciprocating motion can sometimes damage vegetation that I am working on. This pruning hatchet comes with a 6” bar and weighs about 5.0 lbs without a battery. With a XC4.0 battery it weights about 5.5 lbs. Considering I usually run a 6.0 High Output battery on my Hackzall, the pruning hatchet is overall lighter. It is well balanced and comfortable in the hands. I have read lots of reviews about how the safety is hard to engage while trying to trigger the saw. I have worked in construction for many years, and I am not sure if it’s just me, but I always use my middle finger on my left or right, to trigger tools. Impact, drills, Hackzall, you name it I always use my middle finger. So engaging the safety is easy for me. But the safety is designed so that it can be engaged on either side of the tool with your thumb, making it for left or right handed use. The grip is designed so that you can apply pressure and/or maintain good control with your non-trigger hand on the top of the saw. Overall design of the tool is well thought out. The saw has no issues cutting branches up to 3”. It is not designed to go bigger than that for safety reasons. I spent some years as a wild land fire fighter and have dropped my fair share of trees, this tool is not designed to handle bigger cuts so be mindful of that. I read a lot of reviews on oil leaking issues, but I have not had this problem. My end conclusion is that this pruning hatchet beats using a hackzall for pruning and limbing. Make sure to always clean the saw after every use, I use a compressor to clean it out. Make sure you always have bar oil with you when running the tool. Overall very happy with this tool.
