Product Description

Manufactured from aircraft grade aluminum, used for its strength, edge retention, durability and resistance to corrosion. The ergonomic handle is comfortable and less fatiguing than most other pistol-grip style snow saws. SMC's aggressive Stagger Tooth style off-set saw teeth are hand-tuned for optimal efficiency and have been field proven to be more effective in cutting and clearing snow or ice. Unlike most other saws the Summit Snow Saw is designed to cut on the 'thrust stroke' rather than the 'draw stroke' thus making it an even more effective saw. Anodized blue blade more effectively releases snow than non-anodized snow saws and is easier to see when dropped in the snow.

Lightweight / compact
I had the chance to compare saws on Denali. The SMC saw is lighter weight and more compact than the other saws; however it did not cut snow blocks as quickly as one of the larger saws our group had. If you plan to build full height snow walls, you should consider a saw with bigger teeth. It will save you time and energy.
