I learned the hard way to never cut standing on a ladder I cut a limb about 18" in diameter that split fell, and knocked the ladder right out from under me 20ft in the air. I was lucky enough to drop the saw grab on to the eve of the building, and pull myself up safely. I had to take several minutes to gather myself (on the roof) before finishing the job, and never have made that mistake again. I shortly thereafter purchased an extended reach pole saw for those jobs.

That identical scenario happened to see one off the fellas from work...except he had no gutter to grab onto. He also ejected the saw but the fall cost him a fractured elbow. Still lucky nonetheless as it could have been a lot worse.


Glad to hear he is OK the pole saw I got is worth its weight in gold. I am just glad most of us learn from our mistakes with only minor injuries, and never make them again.
