tempted to buy to cut logs for log burner, but mixed reviews whether it could cope with this job

I’ve got one of these and honestly it’s not great, it cuts ( as you’d expect ) but on thick pieces of timber it takes time.

Not sure how it’d cope with logs - I used it in the summer cutting some thick tree branches and gave up switching to a hand saw

Don’t waste your money. I bought one a few years ago and it’s no good for anything thicker than very thin timber. It’s been sat in the garage for the last 3 years.

These are great at cutting timber etc,but would seriously struggle with logs

Got one from Homebase for my dad for that purpose, but I borrowed before he managed to use it to cut through some 3-4cm hard wood table legs and my god did it take its sweet time to cut through them. Would not recommend for cutting logs.

One of my best purchases. Was doing decking and this cut through 4x4s and all the decking boards with ease. Made me wonder why I hadn't got one ages ago! Got mine from warehouse a lot cheaper than this, but I would defo recommend it

Thanks for the feedback guys. I will give this a miss.

My son will just have to continue cutting the logs with the hand saw

Thought about this but it uses weird property blades, went with a titan recip saw

It doesn't - I bought one for that use - ended up using a handsaw.

These are not reliable on anything more than plywood/fence panels. Mine broke after a few months and never got round to returning it

Had one: it disintegrated after a bit of use (part that holds the blade disintegrated) and reviews showed many examples of the same. Also, it has a unique blade fixing so they're very expensive.

Get a decent, conventional reciprocating saw from somewhere like Screwfix: more powerful, longer blades, universal blade fitting and more reliable. Can't see any really cheap ones on there at the moment but I paid about £25 for mine last time they were on offer. I'm sure they're out there with a bit of a search.

Any good for carving the turkey?

Would you have any brand/models to keep an eye out for?

Mine came from Screwfix - possibly Titan or Erbauer brand? Just keep a look out for deals which come up quite regularly.

Edit:
It's this one though I didn't pay anything like the current Screwfix price. Aldi and Lidl have them from time to time too - that's where i got blades but they aren't expensive anyway.

I even got a couple of stubborn tree roots out with this: dug around the trunk until I got down to the horizontal roots, cut through them and they came out OK. Great tool!

Not in my experience, I bought one for a sawing up 60 railway sleepers, thinking the job would kill it i got the extra insurance from Argos for £3, but no it worked a treat and still working well 4 years later.
