Hey Team

Looking to add a folding trail saw into my pack. What do people use and find good?

I've had a bahco one for a few years now, still sharp and gets through some fairly meaty branches.
Those pocket chainsaws look interesting, haven't used one yet tho

Have you checked out the ones trail fund are selling? They look good. My folding saw is about 15 years old and I can't read the name on it sorry but it still works good, just remember to look after it and oil it if it gets wet.

The Silky is the best of the ones I've owned.

And you can support Trail Fund

Pocket chainsaw is fairly useless as I found out. Go for a folding saw. Got a silky and nacho and both good

This http://www.mitre10.co.nz/shop/garden_ce ... aw_123689/
has been an excellent saw. Downside is you can't get replacement blades, but at $15 just have to buy another soon to replace my 2yr old one that has lost its edge a little.

Silky BigBoy 2000 just fits in a camelback lobo...pretty much a chainsaw without the noise. removed 200mm diameter pine trees here in Dunedin from trails in minutes. Highly reccommended!
