Bought this to replace an identical saw that had sadly "died" after a long and hardworking life. It's used for heavy pruning in the garden as well as various diy jobs. Deals with fence posts with no trouble. This new model comes in a hand plastic case making storage easier.
Genuinely one of the best tools I own

Really impressed with this. I used it for over an hour today to chop up 2 old - and extremely heavy duty - wooden gates that we’d had replaced. It made light work of the task. The fact you can also use it as a jigsaw is a real bonus as I needed one of those too. After searching online Best price was from b&q
Compact & versatile saw

I havn't always been a fan of B&D tools due to reliability issues, but this little saw is great! Most reciprocating saws have quite long handles extending back around 40cm from the blade, which is a problem if you are working in a confined space. The body of this saw is only 26cm long, however, which is perfect for working under the floorboards in my house, where it fits in between the joists. It comes with three blades, a large 20cm long one for wood, plastic etc, a smaller 10cm one for the same materials, and a 14cm one for metal. In addition to working on joists & floorboards, I have also used it to cut plastic pipe, plasterboard, and a cast iron soilpipe using the metal blade. Although it did cut the cast iron, progress was very slow, as you would expect with such a hard material. I also like the quick blade change mechanism, which only requires a button to be pressed, and the blade to be swung downwards. The saw is comfortable to hold, and comes with a generous power lead. The only feature I found lacking was a lock-on button, but I guess they have omitted this for safety reasons. It does have a safety interlock for the power switch, which prevents it from starting unexpectedly. Replacement blades for the Scorpion are readily available from DIY stores & online. This is a versatile little saw, which is compact enough to fit in enclosed spaces, and I suspect I'll come to wonder how I managed before I got it.

Bought my machine today. The motor is very good for minor works but the three blade came with it are extremely inferior.

Had mine for at least 10 years. Cut everything with it. Metal, Timber, Plywood, plaster board, cementboard..... the lot.
Snapped the blade carrier, after roja lot of heavy use, got a replacement. 10 minute job. Like new again !
