Still going strong

I've owned mine for almost 18 months or so, and have cuts loads of things with it. I bought it to prune my apple tree which was always a long job with my bow saw, but this saw makes it so much easier.
Today I used it to remove lots of branches from various small trees. A family member expected me to turn up with a chainsaw but didn't look impressed with this saw but it just cut through everything, but without the danger of a chainsaw.
Awful. cant even get the saw blade in

The Instructions say to turn the locking collar 180 degrees (to open it), then insert the blade and release. Well the locking collar actually turns less than 90 degrees at the very most, and will not open up to take the blade. The spring is very stiff, and Ive even tried to twist it open with pliers, but it will not open any more than 70 degrees.
YET ANOTHER WASTE OF TIME AND MONEY FROM B&Q !!!!!!!
Good, but risky to use

Cuts easily and quickly once you get the hang of how to present it to the timber.
I've marked it down because it lacks an important safety feature. Most power tools have some sort of safety button that you have to hold down before you can press the start trigger. This doesn't. If it's plugged in, and your hand touches the trigger when you pick it up, the blade leaps into action even though you're not expecting it. Handle it very carefully!
It does what it says

I bought this 3 years ago - different colour but identical design. It has just given up the ghost. Mine was £60, but came with a quality plastic carrier box. I have used it to cut hundreds of branches at 5 different properties. To be honest I sometimes used it for work that was more suited to a chain saw ( like expecting an MX5 to pull a trailer-it's not fair on the car!) so it was well used and abused with excessive wear and tear.I only went through 3 blades, but with hindsight should have changed the blades more often. Overall, I think it was still the best £60 I've spent. Much safer than a chain saw. You don't need as much protective gear and haven't got the hassle of having to refix the chain every time it flies off. The bosch blades have been excellent to. I found it cheaper to source the blades on internet than buying in the shops.
Excellent sturdy and reliable

It did an amazing job cutting the thick branches off the neighbours row of laurel and the maddening conifers. I would recommend getting extra saw blades but I used the one supplied and still using it. The motor did not burn out under pressure ... Excellent !!!!!my new favourite gardening tool!!
