PS 40 Pruning Saw

PS 40 Pruning Saw
A fixed-blade pruning saw with 7” blade, ideal for cutting branches up to 2.5” in diameter.

Product Description

Whether you’re working in the yard or the back forty, the PS 40 pruning saw is a great partner to have at hand. It features a 7" fixed blade with impulse-hardened teeth that stays sharp three to four times longer than conventional teeth and easily cuts dense or frozen branches up to 2.5” in diameter. The curvature ground blade provides the highest precision and the least amount of pinching. Its comfort grip gives you a firm grasp on the blade at every angle. The composite sheath features a thumb lock and belt loop so it is always where you need it.

Note: Impulse-hardened blades cannot be sharpened.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from NavyJeff Effective saw with a good design. Easy to use. I like the handle. I use this saw to cut small limbs near my tree stands. Cuts through limbs with minimal effort.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great hand saw There are days when I would rather hear the birds and the water rather than a chainsaw motor. On those days this saw is absolutely amazing to have. The blade on the saw is replaceable and the handle and sheath are well constructed. Overalll it is a great item.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm a gardener This is a awesome saw. I where it on my belt everyday. Looks highly professional. Mine is 3 years old. Cuts so perfect and clean. I have another one on my kubota rtv for clearing trails. It's also perfect for backpacking. You will be more than pleased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great saw!!!!! I am very impressed with the smooth cut and ease of stroke with this blade. The saw and sheath are so convenient, light wieght, and tough. I was disappointed with one major downfall, the leg strap is SOLD SEPERATELY!!! This makes no sense, when purchasing the blade, you would figure its a component of the sheath. Haven't found a single dealer that sells the leg strap. All in all the best pruning saw I have used, regardless of size. Easily manuvuered and cuts like its got a chain and motor.
