Erbauer ERB373RSP 1100W Reciprocating Saw 240V
Caution - check all blades fit
Super value for money but.... I collected mine from the store and when I got home I found that the longer of the three blades supplied (for wood) did not fit! The longer wood blade is thicker than the shorter metal blades and it would not seat. It was only that I was going to use the saw on wood first that I discovered this fault. On returning the saw to the store it was changed without question and the replacement accepted all blades and the saw performs well.

Erbauer does it again
This is my second reciprocating saw by this manufacturer. The first one survived 9 years of hard work and abuse, the new one looks even sturdier. Easy blade change, simple to use and does an excellent job.

Easy to use - even 4 a newbie!
I bought this to make some straightforward cuts in 4 inch fence posts - saved me a load of time! Why didn't I buy one before?

My thanks to all who reviewed this product and thereby convinced me to buy it. I needed to destroy a 20' tree with a 10" dia trunk. I looked at a chain saw but the health warnings convinced me that using it would be my last act on earth. Hence the reviews' usefulness. I bought the reciprocating saw and a set of Bosch blades. Two hours later and the tree is no more. The actual sawing of the tree into 4' sections took just 3/4 hour. I used two blades. An amazing piece of technology. I wonder if it can chop through the tree roots, too? I will try that another day. Highly recommended by me and, though it did not operate like a hot knife through butter, the bow saw alternative would have taken much longer and would have left me done for!
Why no Reliability marking? I have only just bought and used it, so cannot offer a judgement on that aspect of the device.
