Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 33 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Buy it on Sale but still worth it if you need it! At first glance thought this little saw wasn't gonna cut it. Getting the blade on was a bit challenging due to the oval looking thing not lining up but some wiggling with the blade finally got it turned enough to slide the blade over it. Now just turn up the whole blade and lock it in place and your good to go! Saw feels good, sturdy and cuts great! Sliced up some four inch trees that I had a hard time getting to with anything else by cutting a small triangle notch to prevent pinching of the blade. Just buy it if your looking for an electric hand saw like this, it works quite well! February 11, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good purchase This was a good purchase for the money. If you're looking for a high powered saw this isn't it - you'll need to spend at least 5X the money for one of those. But as a saw to deal with 3 or 4 inch diameter limbs this has been ideal. Yes, for maximum you do have to do some back and forth movement on your own to clear out the sawdust (it says that in the directions) - but that's small effort compared to what the saw is doing for you. Unlike some of the other reviewers I had no problem attaching the blade - it seemed pretty easy to figure out. July 17, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by excellent, I love it. It's easy to use, easy to change blades. I used it the first day I received it and actually enjoyed it. I had some bougainvilla I couldn't prune myself and this made it so much easier. I also helped with some yucca plants that had become overgrown. I am a 70 yr. old woman and have a hard time dealing with a hand saw and this made it so much easier. I can't wait to use it on some branches I need cut down on a couple of trees in the yard. it make life a lot easier for me for the overgrowth after the summer here in Florida. I have a hard time with using a chainsaw, so I am very pleased with this purchase. September 24, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This handsaw is the perfect addition to my toolbox! The first day I had the saw I used it to do some major trimming of a very large tree. I was able to cut through limbs that were up to 5 inches in diameter with very little trouble. Love the carrying bag that comes with it because as much as I use it I have it out and easy to grab and move on to my next project. My only complaints on the product is that the instructions are beyond bad on how to install the blade. I went online and Googled the product and thankfully found some instructions that users had posted online on how to install the blade. July 23, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Saw - Highly Reccommended Purchase I recently purchased this saw and found it to be one of the best purchases I’ve ever made. It was WELL worth the money. I actually made a review video on the product and shot some video of it in action. If you want to take a look at the saw doing some cutting, this is the link to the video: March 21, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Powered Handsaw The Handsaw had no practical value. It had many vibrations and poor power re: the saw blade. March 24, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by perfect for around the home small jobs this is my second power hand saw from Black and Decker, My son took over my first one, it was so handy to have in his tool box. I moved into a new home and needd to do some light tree trimming, installing closet systems and cutting down wood drapery poles and my hand power saw did the great job I knew it would. I love this saw April 9, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Buy It If you are considering it, I highly recommend it. I have many types of power saws. This is in my top three. I use it to make extremely clean, easy cuts when I prune or cut through large limbs. (I used it as a partner with a chain saw to cut a tree down.) The second blade is a great metal cutting tool. I have owned it for 5-6 years. Thought it wasn't available anymore. So glad to see it here. This saw is very smooth and easy to use. May 20, 2013
