Watch your fingers... like a chainsaw mixed w/ clipper.

what the heck is it for. you can't cut logs with it, far to excess for trimming the hedges. perfect example of testosterone directed improperly. whos was on that design board? the aligator on the blade is the icing on the cake for this trainwreck of a yard tool. 'cause if a chainsawisn't dangerous enough, you need sharp jagged teeth swiveling up and down about the blade. :rant:

Maybe a little safer than a chainsaw, but will only do 10% of the work of a chainsaw. Not for me....

Personally for a branch like that i'd rather use a hand trimmer, or hand saw, than run the extension cord out into the yard, dig that out of the closet, sharpen its chain, and then finally cut a 3" branch. Though maybe a cordless version called the Christmas Tree Chomper or such could be useful... Cause we all know what its like to kneel in the snow for 15 min getting *****ed by the tree. Would probably need to cut up to 7 inches or so for that though.

If the top guard moves up to allow you to cut all the way through, pretty good.

Yes, the top does move. I like this thing more and more expecially after knowing couple of people that have cut off their legs.

Allright X-MAN. 70 years old and still down by the loading docks? I hope you are supervising! Mr. Demarco where would you like me to put this pallet of ball bearings! Your profile is vague at best. QUit messin and update your info. Unless you are Banana George I am having a hard time with the 1937 thing. Transpo? 1973? :D

I was born 1937, I'd let you ask my father.

but he passed away last year, 93 years old.



I tried to edit my profile, but it gives me some kind of error.
I cannot even add one of those cite little picture thing by my name.

but, Mabel always says if it ain't broke don't fix it.

she really get's on my nerves sometimes.

Sorry about your pops. You need to edit your CP and add boat owned or wanted, interests etc... We love T Talkin but the goal is to move your extreme but aged arse into our world! Age is nothing if you can still roll! My old man was born in 27 and is still 6'5" 245 lbs! Sure I can take him now but in his day he was bad! Get with the program! We ain't cuttin' trees here! You have a head start over a lot of us! Fill us in my X-MAN!I was born 1937, I'd let you ask my father.

but he passed away last year, 93 years old.
