Definitely, it's good for low tree branches, but you have to be careful with the extension cord though.

Carpet is held to the by tackstrips that are small wooden yardstick looking strips with reverse facing exposed nails. The nails "hook" the carpet and keep it stretched into place. If you simply pull on the carpet these tackstrips will hold it and even if you are as strong as I am, you don't want to rip the carpet against the strips because the strips are re-usable and since they are already attached to the floor will save you time if you re-use them. To remove the old carpet take a big pair of pliers and yank the carpet towards the wall to release it from the tack strips. Once released it will simply lift away from the floor. Be very careful not to buy new carpet containing toxic chemicals. You'll pay more but in the long run fewer medical bills will actually save you money.

Depends on the roots' diameter, root's density, and how deep the roots buried. But for the household purposes, this B&D hand saw is a life saver. I use it for countless small jobs at home and backyard. I am on my third one. The first one got stolen. The second one I used for about 11 years and finally it burned out on me due to my stubbornness (should have listened to my wife). The third one I had for about 3 years. It cuts pines like butter, but you will have problems cutting a pin oak branches with more than a 4" diameter. Perhaps, in your case you may get a reciprocating saw with a longer blade although a little digging may be in order.

I was shipped this in a box that was held together by packaging tape. Two possibilities a returned item or UPS tried to save a falling apart box (it was the original box not placed inside a shipping box). New blades for sure but Saw not 100% sold it was never handled. In reviews I saw several people returned due to not being able to insert/attach blade - I think I got one of these with new packaged blades. So the next 30 min struggled with attaching blade. Saved by watching a youtube video thank you lady who made it. The metal slot inside has to be turned (knew that from reviews) but the video said you have to depress the release blade button while you turn that metal slot with the screwdriver! Got blade in no thanks to large instruction sheet from manuf. If not for the pandemic I would have taken the bus and returned this suspected returned item and exchanged for a new unopened box (none in stock in my store). I will have to count on the 2 year warranty as my safety net. The lightweight is good for my arthritic hands and cutting thicker branches my pole branch trimmer can't.

This is my second Powered Hand Saw (daughter misplaced the first one). I could not get my new one fast enough. This saw is so light weight. Using it to cut off the extra part of a 4x4 fence post while standing on a ladder was a breeze. At first I was a little frustrated because you have to hold two buttons at once to run it, but after I realized the top button only has to held long enough to start it, I changed my attitude and finished off the post tops in no time. It is a pain to round up electrical cords as appose to having a battery, but then it never dies on me mid project. Did I mention that I'm a 78 year old woman that still loves to do home projects, so anything that makes that easier for me is a winner and in my book this saw is a winner.

My circular saw went belly up. I often used a hand saw because the circular was a big deal to get out for one cut. Saw this electric saw and decided to try it. I recently used it to cut the wood for a bed structure in our van. It worked great! My only problem is it’s heavy enough to aggravate the arthritis in my thumbs. Got some heavy duty gloves and much better. Wouldn’t advise for fine carpentry. This is great for my needs. Thanks Marie

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!
