The Black & Decker PHS550B electric hand saw is a unique tool that can be categorized somewhere in-between a chainsaw and a traditional hand saw. What makes this saw so useful is that it’s so easy to use for any homeowner, especially for people who aren’t comfortable using a chainsaw, and I know there are many of you out there.
The Black & Decker PHS550B electric hand saw is extremely versatile and lightweight; capable of cutting small-to-medium tree branches for pruning, as well as cutting metal, plastic and of course, wood — including firewood. As far as cutting branches go, it’s great for branches up to 5-inches in diameter. If you need to cut branches larger than that then perhaps consider a corded electric chainsaw or the Alligator Lopper.
