Cheaper than professional saws, its paid for itself two times over in less than a year. Well maybe four times over. Payroll costs ain't cheap these days.
Paid for itself this last summer by cutting every third bannister posts off the deck. It was then painted.
This week I used the wood blades to cut and trim two hardy, Crepe Myrtle trees. Had to use the reciprocating saw to drop branches right between two household power lines. The close work worked well.
Off for Christmas and after that I finish cutting up the fire wood. I call it my rehab work. It forces me to work muscles I wouldn't normally in retirement.
