Saw to keep limbs off of your van.

I carry a small pruning saw to take care of limbs in the trail but for overhead tall limbs the wife was too short to reach them. I simply drilled an extra hole in the handle and screewed a piece of an old broom handle too it and now the wife can scurry along in front of the van and catch the tall limbs befor they hit the van. I do luv that woman and even more since she can reach the tall branches!

I think we carry the same pruning saw..... we also carry a small nipper that is gear driven for some mechanical advantage...

That has been a great saw! It eats thru logs with ease. It has stayed sharp for a long time.

That's a body saw, the blade is barely 2" long and I'm pretty sure they don't come in wood.

I demand photos of the saw-weilding wife in action!
