Shiny new Member. Only dropped once...

I’m a very particular person...I've found when I cut a branch stump clean off with my silky, there's always a follow-through. No matter how light I go on the last bit, the saw invariably follows through. This bothers me, as there is potential to damage lanyard or rope if its in the path of the follow through. By the way, I am exerting virtually zero pressure in the cut, just pull strokes. Now, on the other hand, with my battery top handle, there is no follow through. One handing, maybe a tiny bit, two hands, zero. Anyone else experience this and have any thoughts?
A Silky is designed for a very particular purpose.
They work very well.
In your instance, if it bothers you a bit, maybe try positioning your lanyard or rope a little further away from the intended cut area.
Or, try taking it very easy at the end of the cut.
It may just be a little too good at ripping through the wood for the precise results you’re aiming for.
A little finesse goes a long way.
I am NOT implying that you are hacking away like a madman.
Just suggesting that this instance may require you to modify your technique a bit.
