Have only used this once, for a bunch of trimming on a single tree. Although I'm a bit clumsy, I found this tool to be really helpful. Could use one about twice as long, of course; however, shipping might be a problem. Once I got the hang of the mechanics, it worked just great. Mostly I used the 'claw' to trim dead branches, but found I could use the saw when cutting branches next to the trunk. No rocket science! Would recommend without hesitation. Giving this 4 stars as the 'claw' is only good on slim branches - could use one with a bigger opening.
