When you just take one saw to the woods, it will invariably get pinched first thing! My son had to leave a saw in a tree one evening until I brought another saw to cut it out the next morning.

So be prepared. That Miracle Wedge would have come in handy for me a few times.

I always take at least three saws and a couple wedges with me. I have plenty to choose from.

Glad to hear you testify .In addition to rocking a chain ,installing a chain backwards ,oiling the gas tank  you will given enough time hang a saw .You might even do two in the same tree .Anybody that hasn't either has had very little time on the trigger or handles the truth carelessly .

How about hanging two saws then dropping the tree on one of them. :-[

Knock on wood I've yet to squash a saw . I did however back over a tool box with a D4 Cat if that counts .

As far as pinched saws the above post was my worst experience.

But this past summer I went to drop a 18" DBH yellow pine and despite the lean of the trunk in the direction I wanted it to fall, apparently the limb weight was wanting the tree to go across the neighbor's fence. The grandson and I detected this early on by watching closely and I started wedges. Finished the cut and couldn't get it to go over even though I considered the notch to be rather deep with a one inch hinge and the wedges were sunk. Put a 7/16" double braid Dacron rope pretty high up in it and pulled the tree down with the truck.  But I will not always have that option? I may need one of those levers?

The worst I ever did was hang a little Poulan about 40 feet up in a silver maple I was dissassembling . The next smaller saw I had with me was a Stihl 042 to cut it loose with .While is's not a bad saw for ground work that's one heavy SOB hanging from a belt up in a tree .

Got my saw jammed between first and second logs in a 20" spruce. Spare saw was 20 minutes away and porter was on the other cutter. Miracle wedge had me out in 20 seconds. Paid for itself today.
