Rated 4 out of 5Â by Shackman Controlled power cutting
My old saw broke mid-job, so I needed a replacement. I took the opportunity to get a better one.
The ratings, well I have only been using it for a week, so whilst I don't know about the reliability I can say that it does the job with a minimum of fuss. The tool-free blade change is a great, I have never had one slip out at all. More impotantly I've been more inclined to use "the right blade" for the job rather than general purpose blades and this has made huge difference. Do get good blades though, when swapping between them I can really see that they're not all made equal! Features, well a tool free depth adjuster would be handy, as would some speed locking facility, although in use I have not had any problems, I just fixed an allen key to the lead so it's there when I need it.
I have really found this a good powerful and easy to use, and would recommend it, especially at this price range.

I brought this recently after watching another carpenter use this all day whilst cutting out and moving a staircase. It really is very useful and powerful and it has saved me a shed load of time, especially useful in hard to reach places. Now my plumber and electrician have brought them too!
The blades are a doddle to change and I use the Makitia blades, which work very well. I also like the adjustable blade guard, the only very slight drawback is this has to be adjusted with an Allen key (supplied) but it would be better if it had a pressure release type mechanism, but itâs only a minor thing. It comes with a fairly decent carry box but no storage compartments for spare blades or Allen key, which is a shame.
Over all very good bit of kit and highly recommended.
