Power hacksaw cuts the mustard…

WOOD, metal, plastic piping and plasterboard – all can be cut with a variable-speed reciprocating saw, says maker Elu Power Tools.

Working like a powered hacksaw, the MSS810E is an 810W unit fitted with a counterbalanced gearbox and heavy duty rubber boot.

Variable speed control enables the operator to vary speed from 0-2400 strokes/min – particularly useful for making the starting cut.

Supplied with three blades and a metal kitbox, the reciprocating saw is priced at £249 (01844-262540).
