If we had trees, I would be all over this! Although we are tree-less, our neighbor has a pesky palm tree that I would like to cut down in the middle of the night like a chainsawing ninja. Either that, or maybe I will just ask them if I can cut it down. The pocket chainsaw is reported to cut a 3″ diameter tree limb in less than 10 seconds. I watched the video, and I don’t care if the tree is made of balsa and Sven the 300 pound lumberjack is doing the sawing, this thing saws fast! The saws design makes it great for awkward cuts close to the ground too. It is probably a tad safer than a gas powered 6 hp Husqvarna. Available from Clean Air Gardening for about $20.
About Marc Lyman
Marc grew up under a brave single mom who "encouraged" home improvement on the family home. Early toddler gifts included a tool set, and even a cordless Bosch drill when cordless drills first came out. In grade school (give or take a few years), Marc's mom said, "We need to cut down some trees. . . . here's a chainsaw." A father figure also involved Marc in many home improvement projects, including a summer of home remodeling in Palo Alto, CA. Toss in some Obsessive Compulsive personality traits researching everything home improvement related. The end result: a genetically pre-disposed, socially sculpted home improvement machine!
