Erbauer ERB383WCH 125mm Wall Chaser 230-240V
Having spent most of my electrical apprenticeship 20 years ago chasing bar gate stone walls this tool is nothing short of a miracle tool. Unlike other reviewers I have used this in my newly decorated house with dust extraction. You must always cut in the direction the manual tells you if not it throws dust everywhere and use a good hoover.
Normally all my tools are Hilti but for value for money this tool is unbeatable.
I have had mine 2 years with no issues.

Good for the money
I used this alongside my Karcher MV3P vacuum cleaner (which was a perfect fit) and had next to no dust at all, which genuinely shocked me. I didn't even need to wear a dust mask.
It does the job and it does it well, though a few minor gripes:
- 125mm blades are a pain to find locally
- the motor is a bit weak, and you often have to retrace the line to get the blades back up to speed
- cutting width and depth would be great if they went all the way up to 40mm, but sometimes 30mm just isn't enough.
However, this costs a fraction of what some of the big models cost and still does a pretty darn good job of it.

BEWARE-Good product but...
Did a fantastic job much quicker and easier than I thought. However, despite having an industrial vaccuum the dust collection is awful,despite wht other reviews say, make sure you either empty the room or double dust sheet over, the dust went everywhere including under doors .Next time I shall empty the room. For reference I did a 2.5cm wide x 2cm depth cut.

Excellent for the money
I bought this chaser to replace a very old Makita one I had, and it is actually better! Only bad thing is the power tool/dust extractor connector is very poor quality and does not fit my Hoover but nothing a bit of insulation tape can't sort out
