Green Mountain CS-48 High-Limb Chain Saw

Best for: Limbs up to 14 inches in diameter and up to 25 feet high.

The verdict: It's just two 25-foot ropes tied to a chain that cuts both ways, but it spells doom for branches beyond a pole pruner's reach. Toss one rope over the limb using the weighted throw bag, then use both ropes to pull the chain back and forth. To make neat cuts in one pass, stand to one side as far as you can and saw until the chain bites into the limb's underbelly. Repeat from the other side and cut through.

Fine print: Includes throw bag.

Weight: 2.75 pounds

Price: $50;
