Excellent product, easy and safe to use.
second unit I've had, having thrashed the first one to death. It's a little cracker
The instructions say it needs oil every 10 mins of operation, and I definitely found that to be the case. Small twigs can cause chain fouling. You can chop larger trunks if you're able to rotate the log - look on YouTube. Overall it did what I wanted it to do, the only reason for 4 stars instead of 5 for performance is that it needed more attention to the chain than I was expecting.
This product is so easy to use and does the job well, we used it to cut through very thick tree branches, it is easy to grip and is sturdy. We like the quality of the product as it provided value for money and even though we had to be careful not to cut through the cord, it did everything asked of it. A handy tool to have, we would certainly buy another in due course.
All I can say is AWESOME!! A very safe way to cut branches and if you turn the logs round you can actually cut up to 8inches, deep enough for most. It's sooo good I have thought of many other uses for it and I will now buy the battery version. Honestly you will not be dissapointed when you buy this, I did a solid whole day of cutting up logs the day I received it and it didn't bat an eyelid, it is powerful and sharp, the chain came off once but was really easy to put back on. If there is a bad point it is that rather than having a large chain oil reservoir, you have to fill the small reservoir up every ten mins of use, but it takes about 1 minute to fill so isn't that bad. Use a purpose made chain oil not ordinary oil. If you want a safe easy way to cut logs/branches/twigs please please buy this!!
Only used the alligator saw a couple of times so far but can already see what a very good addition it is has no trouble sawing thru wood from trees
Very good purchase did exactly what it said on the tin. I have used it several times since I purchased it and it hasn`t let me down. Excellent for cutting smaller branches of a tree.
Works well, fairly heavy on arms
These are a replacement for some that wore out we liked them enough to get some more. They are sturdy, reliable and do a good job. A bit like a chainsaw but much safer
it is Fantastic
Brilliant. This is my second one and would recommend them to anyone with a large garden. Thanks
Best piece of gear ever, 2 days solid work, took down 3 trees and made them all into logs. Like other reviews state, oiler not very good, but still managed to oil the chain. Would recomend this to anyone with some garden work to be done, so much easier than a chainsaw proper
Very efficient piece of kit pruned my plum trees in less than half the time it would have taken using hand tools. Best to ignore plastic oil can supplied with machine and use conventional pump - oil can filled with chainsaw oil, lubricate chain well before, during and after use, make sure no small twigs are jammed in hinges of jaws on a regular basis.
Saves so much time
excellent..Made cutting back our conifers so much easier and saved time too..Well made and sturdy..A lot easier and safer to use than a chainsaw. Would highly recommend this product..Best purchase ever.
Good for tree pruning and chopping branches off felled trees. Hates bamboo! quite heavy after a long stint working horizontally.
Great piece of kit. does just as described. excellent service from tooled-up. arrived early and in perfect condition.
Great product and great service. I bought an alligator about 12 years ago and it is still going strong but i just fancied having a new one, especially as it came with a spare chain that i can put on the old one. i wouldn't be without it - you can cut quite large branches easily and it is safer than a chainsaw.
I am 63yr old and i am so plsd with the alligator lopper. so easy to handle and cuts through branches very easily- heaven! Instructions are very clear to follow. Handling the lopper when running is a similar action to using cutting shears, but easier. What a good buy.
Does what it claims and a bit more. I use it to remove big woody stems from our field hedge. Loppers are beaten by size. Hedge cutters, bow saws and chain saws don't cope because the stems move about. The 'gator traps and destroys. Grrrr!
Phenomenal product. After my paraffin burner to start bonfires it is the best product i've ever bought. we use this pretty much every day during the summer and have had it 3 years and have replaced the battery fro about £30 once. Haven't needed any yet but parts are very cheap and easy to find. happily cuts branches unto about 5 inches wide. If you can get access to both sides then you can cut possibly a 8 inch branch. with reasonable expectations you can cut roughly 30 inch or 60 3 inch boughs. Its not a chain saw as such, so has some limitations, but for going around the garden cutting off branches quickly and efficiently its a godsend. Highly recommend.
Brilliant design and feels much safer than a normal chainsaw to use. However i have bought 2 of these and both of them have suffered motor failues and had to be thrown away. I was very careful not to overload these saws and therefore could not recommend one due to the very short lifespan of a few hours of use for me.
