The 48c long blade enables you to saw even faster because the longer the blade the deeper the cut. The original blade is 390mm long. The blade comes complete with scabbard, fixing pipe and sickle. A detachable lower sickle for undercutting bark, creating a clean cut without damaging the tree. Fixed upper sickle to cut twigs and vines.
It utilises the Silky 4-Retsume teeth technology – ideal for the toughest pruning jobs. The Hayauchi 480mm comes complete with a new scabbard, blade fixing pipe, and lower sickle. The Hayauchi 480mm has an aggressive pitch of 6.5 teeth per 30mm. The teeth can be sharpened with a special Silky file. Hayauchi blades can be re-sharpened and all parts are replaceable.
Silky Saws are traditional Japanese pruning saws and as such are designed to cut on the pull stroke. The blade will be under tension on the cutting stroke and will not be able to bow. Let the saw do the work. Never force the blade on the push stroke as you will be pushing against the direction of the teeth. Carefully take the pressure off the blade in order to release the saw. Generally you should experience fewer vibrations and use less effort enabling longer work and improved productivity. The Hayauchi 480 Head should always be stored with the blade guard in place. They should also be cleaned of any debris/dirt to ensure a smooth opening operation. The blade should ideally be cleaned with a solvent like the EASy Saw Cleaner – this will help to prolong its useful life.
