How do I justify buying this? I don’t really need it at the moment.

for those asking about cutting down trees, we’ve done this in a couple of weekends using this tool and some Bosch tree cutting blades, finishing it off this weekend! We just bought the house and tree blocked all light to our garden as well as neighbours and roots appearing everywhere so decided it had to go, quotes for roots/stump removal fairly reasonable but was looking at over £500 for the tree to be felled.

Buy a tree. You’ll need one of these to trim it in 10-20 years time?

It is a shame it gets stereotyped as a demolition tool, it is so much more than that....tight corner of the garden I needed to cut down the tops of fence posts in situ, much better for the job than attempting with a jigsaw or a cumbersome circular saw, got the two posts cut in minutes to accomodate the apex of the shed.
Thanks OP. do we need extra blades ? i need to trim down garden plants/trees.
Merely a thought, but, the Aldi tiger saw APPEARS a similar beast £29.99, no idea if THAT a reduced price..

..it though, is only 500w, but it IS speed adjustable, so for cutting different materials a must??
(and Aldi 3 year warranty)
..thoughts??

The best ones I have found for that are the Bosch green wood blades. They are expensive though. IIRC I've also bought Faithful brand ones on Amazon which are also good and little cheaper.
I have this and the speed is variable with the trigger. I bought it a few years ago though. They must have changed it.

I bought some Bosch blades, 5 pack for about £7 on Amazon. Been great for chopping down trees in the garden.
I was looking at this a few weeks back but went for the cordless Parkhouse model from Lidl. You have to buy batteries and charger if you don't have any, but it's been superb.
I think you get a 3 year warranty with these. Titan do make some tough power tools. Great price. Heat added

I find it hard to believe they have changed it. I have one of these (different brand) and it would be almost impossible to use safely without variable speed.

It comes with a blade. However, I recommend these 28cm blades made in Germany for cutting down trees:

You get 5 of them and they never skip a beat (I was using a bosch Pro recip saw though)

These are quite "agricultural"..good for hacking a tree branch or some roots, a very rough end-cut, or some mild steel.Hopeless at following any sort of line, though. Since they are reciprocating, if the blade withdraws into the materiel too much it tends to get bent on the way back out, and they do not straighten too well ! I think I got an Erbaur multi pack of blades, different lengths and for different materials. Good at what it is for -useless at any finer work.

I have the Bosch (green) version of this, and my mum has the Black and Decker one (Scorpion). Both are as good as one another, used for felling trees / cutting back bushes mainly. The blades however are a specific shape, and expensive for the Bosch and B+D, whilst the reciprocating saw takes regular reciprocating saw blades - you can get 4 or 5 blades for the price of one for my Bosch. Mine was a gift, if I was buying myself, i'd buy one of these.
As you say though, if you want to cut other materials you may want a speed adjustable one. For me, they make a fairly rough and inaccurate cut so I've used mainly in the garden, and for things like roughly cutting up old pallets.

Depends how tightly Fido is holding it.
wow, a new electric bike for £29.99
Been this price for a while since Aldi did their one for sale price. Aldi one was variable speed and 3yr warranty but I missed it. Looks much better than the tiger saw they have in Aldi at minute as standard blades, 750w vs 500w.
nice, been wanting one of these to fell a tree in the garden, seems positive from what people have said here and much better than the quote i;ve been given by a professional.
Aldi tiger saw is bad, I bought that before this - much harder to get blades for it

You may need it tomorrow or the day after, if not you can always hand it down to your kids or grandchildren.
any suggestions from the experts please? Is this suitable as a sybian machine and where can I find the attachements??
Thanks
Thanks OP.
I'd received a '£10 off your next purchase' coupon through the post from Screwfix this week, and with the opening of a new Screwfix Depot in Peterborough for a few days everything has 10% off, so I got the saw at a bargain price!
I'll be in OH's good books for sure.
Had one of these for more than 2 years, well worth the money. Lidl do cheap blades now and again too.

No, too powerful at single speed, and google for attachments, and remember this is a family friendly website.

I'd get your alibi watertight before you buy this!!
Would it produce a straight neat cut of a ktichen worktop?
Aldi do one with variable speed for the same price but obviously you have to wait for it to come around again. It also comes with a plastic carry case and 5 or so blades

No way if you plan on joining those cut ends. The blade would likely wonder too much. Router would be best.

Am i better off with this which I've already bought?

That would get you a neater straighter cut yes. Dont think that blade or device would cut all the way through as most worktops are thicker than 27mm iirc.

no, not designed for that. You need a circular saw
Could also go under "Lovehoney" type deals...

Circular saw in situ to remove the top of fence posts is how people lose heads!

I used my titan reciprocating saw up a ladder last week to remove all my neighbours' overhanging branches. It made short work of them, although at 3KG it's quite unwieldy up a shaky ladder.

Seems to cope well with long duty cycles too as I'd mine on constantly for 5 minutes at a time in the hot weather.

Just remember to pick up a few generic blades as well. My blade is still sharp enough but a little bent after a couple of hours of use.
This is the tool they use in all the movies to chop up bodies and bones
Thanks! Got one to use in the bedroom. Just need to buy the attachment now.
