Black & Decker KS890ECN Scorpion Saw
I read the reviews of a couple of saws and decided to give this one a go.
What I wanted was a saw that I could use to cut branches when my husband wasn't around to help and this is brilliant!
Yes it is a little bit noisy but not too much and there is some vibration but this is expected and nothing untoward.
I tried it out on branches up to 5inches in diameter and it cut through them like a knife through butter - literally!
The knack is to let the saw do the work and not put pressure on the blade and then, as the instruction leaflet says, move the saw backwards and forwards whilst cutting as you would a standard saw/blade.
You have to push the switch on the top before you can engage and push down the motor switch and if you let the latter go at any time then you have to do the process again, could be annoying to some but a good safety feature as far as I'm concerned.
My only gripe is the cable which can get in the way, especially if you are cutting items low down but I got round this by firstly holding it in the same hand that was holding the switch down, but then found it was easier to drape the cord over my shoulder so that it is out of the way. A clip on the back of the saw to fix the cable in would have kept it out of the way. As I didn't want to purchase a petrol saw, which would be the only way to get round this, then it's fine and just be careful!
Would recommend this product.
