ATLANTA -- Robert Wheeler is a man of many talents. He's a contractor, gardener and artist, so he's pretty handy with most any tool.

"I use a chainsaw," Robert says, but admits that the hardest part is "getting it started." So he is excited to try the Mighty Saw, which claims it is the easiest way to cut, prune and trim.

Robert examines the product. "After I saw it in person, I thought it was quite flimsy," he says.

He wraps the Mighty Saw around a piece of wood to cut through it. Because there's no motor, he has to provide the muscle.

"If you want that kind of exercise, this could be good," he says.

Then Robert uses the Teflon-coated steel blade to prune some low-hanging branches. One word of caution: stand to the side so you don't get hit!

He also tries the Mighty Saw on a PVC pipe. The product cuts through, but the edge is very uneven; Robert admits that a hacksaw is best for cutting through this type of pipe.

In the end, Robert says he prefers the hacksaw, but admits the Mighty Saw does what it claims. He gives the product one thumb up and one thumb down.
