Answer: 
That is a good question. I want to say yes, but please take care that you do not try to use the power saw to cut through the knots. It is a removable blade and may break.

Answer: 
Explore chain saws for that. Look at the gator chain saw for more safety for cutting small logs.

Answer: 
If it is logs, it would take some time & wear & tear on the blades. ..best to just split the wood. If it is just lumber, it can cut 4x4.

Answer: 
I would say it depends on how soft the wood is to cut through. This saw moves back and forth the same as the hand saw, but with a motor. I say that because the idea is to not force this saw, but to only guide it in a steady way as it cuts the wood. If one is impatient and forces it down on the wood, the blade would bend, which is obviously not good. The blade is a good size one though. The reciprocating Read More

Answer: 
Yes, for trimming. Nice smooth cut. Not fast; not a chain saw. But a sweet saw.

Answer: 
It worked for us with branches up to 5 inches across and 12 feet long. Something larger might have been better but we were motivated. we had a long handled hand saw to help with some of the work. The saw worked really well and we're very happy with it. Just be careful about getting the saw blade pinched and bigger branches falling where you do not want them to fall.

Answer: 
I thought the same thing. I also had difficulty understanding the instructions. So I went to my local store and the guys at the Customer Service desk figured it out and showed me. I recommend you do the same.

Answer: 
There is a oval piece (that the blade sits on) in the saw that needs to be turned the right way. Once you get it figured out its not to bad.

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 72 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Really like it so far. Took me several practices to get the hang of installing the blade. Found the little mounting nob was not turned correctly to seat the blade and experimented with screwdriver and release button until it seemed right. Works well, you still have to "saw" with it for the motion, but it does the hard part of the work and saves the shoulder power. Makes almost no sawdust (similar to a finishing saw blade), which I like. Have only done a little cutting, so may have more to say later when I get into using it more heavily in the fall months for several upcoming projects. Seems well balanced and not too heavy. August 4, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Just okay I could not get the blade in so I took it to Home Depot and they (after several tries) got in. I left it in because I didn't think I would be able to reattach it The saw is okay for very small branches. You have to move it back and forth so it gets tiring. I wish I had purchased one with a little more power. It is okay but nothing to get excited about. August 9, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great price for the item - cut easily and quickly easy to use - just let it do the work- did not need to add pressure to cut. August 16, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good Multipurpose Small Saw This saw is really good for small landscaping projects (cutting branches, etc). I had trouble putting in the blade for the first time, but went to YouTube and watched a video to get better instructions. August 2, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Happy with product I find it easy to use and gets the job done. The issue of how to install the blade was resolved, with help from the friendly guys at customer service in the store. I personally am unable to handle any power tools that are heavy, which thankfully, this is not. August 1, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Purchase Being a small, older woman, I needed a saw that I could handle and that would do the jobs I needed done with ease. This was a perfect choice. So much better than trying to saw by hand. Perfect size and weight. I love it. August 2, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Best Power Hand Saw This is a VERY handy saw. Wore the 1st one out. Used to be able to buy in store now have to buy it online... Not happy about that.. It can get a little heavy but I still love it. June 20, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Handy saw for the home Very easy to use and powerful. I cut green tree limbs about 4" wide with ease. June 24, 2016
