Sheath Saw or Folding Saw

Sheath Saw or Folding Saw

When you ask which one should you have, the key question is what kind of usage are you planning?



If you'll be using the saw continuously for long periods of time and generally cutting larger limbs, then a sheath saw will probably be better for you. Most of our arborist and horticultural customers will prefer a sheath saw.



Although if you're just going to use it around the garden at home, then a smaller folding saw may be more suitable. Folding saws are also great for the car glove-box, or on the quad bike around the farm, and now very popular for the track building and maintenance crews and even the mountain bike rider.

The final decision however is purely up to you, and what you will feel more comfortable with. However if you're still unsure, give us a call and let us know what you will be using it for and we'll see if we can help you decide.
