    5.0 out of 5 stars Knife thro' butter! 5 Aug 2011
    Verified Purchase
    I had a 20ft birch tree that had to go as it was sucking up all the nutrients & water from the soil and nothing would grow anywhere near it. My orginal idea was to hire a chain saw until I saw that it was almost cheaper to buy one than hire one! Based on the reviews and the pic of someone apparently sawing up quite a big log I eventually decided to give the Draper Expert saw a go. Initial doubts were completely dispelled when I started to use it. 2 to 3 inch branches were cut through in no time and the main trunk in a few minutes, even where it was close to the ground and quite an awkward posture. Another reviewer complained about excessive packaging - the complaint was listened to as it arrived sandwiched in cardboard (the blade has a protective guard). All-in-all an excellent garden saw for heavy jobs and would probably comfortably deal with trees with 6 to 8 inch trunks (the length of cut in the picture was 6ins.)

    5.0 out of 5 stars Superb Tool 27 Feb 2012
    By Alan
    Verified Purchase
    Makes easy work of cutting tree branches and would recommend to use good secateurs for very thin branches. Thickest branch I had was 5" and was able to cut through it in about a minute and some were quite wet which caused no problem. The handle, curved blade and teeth are perfectly designed for the job. You should note that this is a pull saw which cuts on the pull stroke.

    5.0 out of 5 stars A joy to use! 6 July 2011
    By Lin
    Verified Purchase
    This saw is the best piece of kit I've bought for years! I needed to cut some big bits of tree and the pictures suggested that this was the tool for the job: it was.
    With a good grip, even for small female hands, it cuts cleanly and without a lot of effort. This saw does its job so well that it's a real pleasure to use.
    It would be a good buy at full price - at the sale price it's brilliant! I can highly recommend it. Everyone should have one.

    4.0 out of 5 stars good product. 22 May 2013
    Verified Purchase
    Apart from the ridiculously large square box the item was delivered in ,the saw is very good.A blade protector is included which is welcome.I have cut down tree branches of varying sizes from 1" to 10" in diameter with no problems so far.The curved aspect of the blade and the fact that it cuts on the reverse stroke did get me to alter my sawing style but after a few minutes I got used to it which aided branch cutting no end.Its not a miracle product and your arm will still get tired after prolonged use but it is a very good garden saw at a very reasonable price.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Draper Curved Blade Garden Saw 7 Mar 2012
    By Gwaihir
    Verified Purchase
    This saw has a comfortable grip and proved extremely useful in pruning thick [up to 150mm/6ins] branches. Doing so meant not having to risk using a chainsaw at height. If space is very restricted, then a smaller saw may be beneficial.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Great 6 Oct 2012
    By Rozer

    This is the best saw I have ever used. Goes through branches like butter, even up to 4 inches thick. Quite sure I could take a fair size tree down with this if wanted.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Draper Expert 500mm. Saw 27 Dec 2011
    An excellent product, well made and good value.It allows you to get into places that a Bow Saw won't and I've managed to take out 4 to 5 inch branches with it.

    1.0 out of 5 stars I hated it
    As with the Draper 76749 it was such hard work I put it down after a few seconds. I went back to using a bow saw which easily made the cut. I guess you get what you pay for.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Draper Expert Saw
    Far better than I had expected. Had a few really thick conifer branches to saw through and the saw proved to be more than adequate for the job.

    Really good value too.

    Good quality saw for general pruning of small diameter branches. It will also cut up small diameter logs. Curved blade is good design.
