Hayauchi is Japanese for ‘fast beating’—as in drumming or typing. It also makes for fast fluid sawing. 15.4" high-carbon steel blade with 5.5 teeth per inch extends from an aluminum oval pole that telescopes from 8' to an astounding 21'! With this versatile saw, you'll be able to stand safely on the ground while dexterously pruning limbs that would otherwise be impossible to reach without tree-climbing gear or a tall ladder. Fedco OGS mastermind David Shipman has owned one for many years and he calls it his favorite landscaping tool. Includes a rigid plastic blade cover. 6.9 lb working weight.
9049 Silky Hayauchi Pole Saw
Our line of Silky saws comes recommended by Daniel MacPhee of Blackbird Rise Farm in Palermo, ME. According to Daniel, the Japanese Silky saws cut “a million times better” than Felco saws. The blades have more teeth per inch and are thinner and more flexible. The latter attribute improves performance but does make the blade more susceptible to bending, so be gentle with it. Silky saws cut on the pull stroke. Manufactured in Japan.
