What are the main features of the ARS CAM24 PRO pruning saw?

Manufactured in Japan this saw has a tapered, fixed straight blade that's made from high carbon steel and has a chrome plating. The teeth have been impulse hardened and angled so that it cuts on the pull stroke and its ergonomic handle has a comfortable rubber grip. It comes with a holster and belt hook for safe carrying.

What’s the ARS CAM24 PRO pruning saw like to use?

Light and comfortable in the hand the saw tackles even thick, dense wood with ease. Impulse hardening on the teeth helps them stay sharp for a long time and each stroke is easy and effortless. The saw feels sturdy and capable and the handle’s non-slip grip works well, as does the hook at the end, which helps keep your hand firmly in place when applying pressure. The holster’s useful and has a stopper system inside to hold the saw in place plus, it comes with a belt clip attached. The only shame is that leg straps to go in the loops on the side of the holster are not included and have to be bought separately.

Who is the ARS CAM24 PRO pruning saw most useful for?

This is a professional quality saw that will make light work of any pruning tasks and is ideal for anyone with lots of large-scale pruning to do. The straight blade makes it best suited to cutting wood that’s level with the user. The holster is useful but it’s size makes it less convenient and portable than a folding saw

Is the ARS CAM24 PRO pruning saw value for money?

This is a high quality tool that's been made to last and cuts with ease. Sitting just in the mid price range of the saws in our test all parts of this saw are replaceable plus it comes with a lifetime warranty. We think it’s excellent value for money.
