Erbauer ERB373RSP 1100W Reciprocating Saw 240V
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.

Purchased for trimming trees / bushes.
I also purchased Bosch Reciprocating Saw Blades Wood S1531L 240mm 5Tpi Pack of 5 having read other reviews.
Easy to install blades.
Easy to use.
Not too heavy.

Great bit of kit.
I bought this to cut a scalloped top on a wooden fence. Once I had the curved line drawn the saw made short work of the job. The blade is easy to change. Although it is a bit heavy when using it above head height the saw is easy to use and well balanced.
I also used the saw to trim some branches off a tree - about 75-100mm diameter. Again it made short work of the job with no problems.
I can't comment on reliability as I've only had it a few days but if my other Erbauer tools are anything to go by there should be no reliability issues.
