Spear & Jackson Demolition Saw 9Tpi 14" (360mm)
Failed at first attempt
I bought this saw because one of the reviewers said that it is very good for cutting through the cement tile backing board.
I needed to cut a 45cm x 40cm piece of the Hardybacker board. By the end of the first cut it was already going very slow - the second cut took over 5 minutes of relentless sawing, and the thing was as blunt as a brick.

Does as promised. Through metal like butter. Brilliant.

I broke into my own garage!
We had a new main garage door fitted earlier this year and it transpires that the dozy installer didn't tighten all the fittings properly. So, this morning, one of the locking bars didn't retract properly and I couldn't get in and all my tools were in there. The personnel door can't be opened because the previous owner lost the key. So, what to do - dive down to Screwfix and buy a demolition saw and saw through the bolts and brackets holding the personnel door frame to the wall. There was sufficient gap to get the saw blade between the frame and wall.
Success! The saw did light work of cutting the fixings and I was in and rectifying the problem in no time.
The saw still cut through steel after this job too.

Tough bit of kit
Used this to cut through cement tile backer boards. No problems at all.
Useful multi position feature on the handle too.
