As all manual tools, you are free to use them wherever you want and how long you want, no power cord, battery running time or fuel holding you back. On the other hand, the only limitation is your stamina and upper body strength as you have to cut everything yourself.

Fiskars manual saws are great for an occasional use when you don’t need an extraordinary reach – they are lightweight, easy to use and won’t ruin your budget. All of them also feature a lopper for cutting thin branches (which often bounce away from the saw).

If you have a larger area with many trees to prune or just want the best equipment available, the Silky pole saws are for you. Also, the lightweight design also enables using a longer pole so if you need to reach really high, get one of these.
