Has anyone heard of such a thing? I am looking to buy one for my dad for Christmas and have done a web search and come up with nothing. My dad called it a lemming saw (not sure if the spelling is correct) it is a saw used in tree climbing apparently the the handle and blade are opposite from a traditional chainsaw for climbing reasons. He says the blade is 14-16 inches. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

The B&D Alligator Chainsaw Lopper was advertised in today in a flyer for a local Ace Hardware chain.

Don't know if this is what you are talking aobut or not.

Needless to say, I couldn't resist joining in about the "lemming saw."

One option is a pole pruner. If you don't have a huge amount of limbing to do, these are great. They may not be power operated, but I've used one for many years and had good luck with it. It has a pruning saw on one side and a lopper on the other (with a rope to control the lopper).

Very simple, effective, lightweight and low-maintenance. And yes, they can be a bit of work to use--but I still recommend it.

Now if only it kept all the lemmings away..., lol!
