This little saw, although when I say little it is actually about 350mm long, 200mm high(including the blade) and about 90mm wide. Although the handle does add another 90mm to the width. And it weighs in at just over 3kgs.
It offers 5500rpms and, according to the instructions, you can give it a good 30 minutes of continuous use without burning the motor out.
It can be used on most, if not all, material, wood, metal, brick, concrete, plastic, copper.. anything you put in front of it. This usually depends on the blades you use,
It has two blades, which spin in opposite directions, for a quick and gentler cutting motion. These double blades are placed in the same section of the machine, using the specially designed 'locking wrench on a piece of string'. This has the wrench on one side and a locking rod on the other, the rod going through the holes in the blades whilst you tighten/loosen the blade bolt.
Once the blades are in place you grab the handle, which is on the side of the machine and is nice to hold, even when in use. Together with the grip, using the push forward on button, and away you go....
I've used it when putting decking together, slicing through the boards, posts even the metal nails when things have gone wrong. I've even used it on laminate flooring, plywood and other 'more delicate' material, and had no issues with it at all, although it can leave a bit of a rough burr on some woods and metals, copper piping being one of them.
It has an arch of plastic covering the blade which means that the blade does not become visible until the material you're cutting has pushed the plastic guard back. You can bypass this if you need to cut 'down' on something, by holding the plastic cover up, but this exposes the blades teeth to your fingers.
It may seem heavy but once the blade is on the material it's cutting the weight drops as the machine rests down. But don't let go of it though, but even if you do let go the switch deactivates the motor cuts off.
The price of this useful saw is about £65, which is good value for money for a versatile saw like this one.
If you need an all round saw that has power and versatility then this is money well spent. It was for me.
