Branches still around?

If you’ve got some branches hanging out from that storm this winter – that still need to be chopped – or you can’t make it to our next chainsaw class, maybe you should check out these effective pruning blades we have available for a reciprocating saw! Depending on the size of your work, this combination may actually be a better option than a chainsaw for clearing out those limbs.

They are 9″ long and can be used on branches that are 4″ in diameter. They fit into most reciprocating saws aka ‘sawzalls’ (and we recommend using a corded, though the cordless are handy.)
