We have used the A700 Folding Pruning Saw extensively for our volunteer events. It is a good tool at an affordable price. The only drawback is the roll pin that holds the blade in lock position falls out after heavy use.
A.M. Leonard: We have contacted the customer to resolve this issue!
Great saw! I bought it to work on my art; cutting wood and various materials...It's a good quality hand tool.
This is a pretty well made saw and enjoy having it. If I had to choose a negative it would be that over time the blade has a tendency to not easily fold back all the way due to wear. Also, it would be nice to have a leather type holder for it. A.M. Leonard responds: Item #SC89 is a wonderful sheath holder for a soil knife and this saw.
Exact same top quality performance as ARS GR17 but at a much more attractive price!
This is by far the best hand saw I have ever used. I keep one on the tractor all the time. Cuts with unbelivable ease. Very well made. Convenient. Bought three more for stocking stuffers.
