Tool Business + Hire Magazine published an independent product review of the Draper 710W 230V Reciprocating Saw (stock No. 28809) written by Peter Brett.
“… easy handling, longish cord and quick release blade system …”
“It seems to have taken us in the UK a long time to catch up with the potential uses of reciprocating (“recip”) saws compared with the US. Maybe, because more US-Style construction methods and materials have been adopted here, more recip saws will be found in the back of white vans. Certainly, no uPVC window fitter I know is without one, and a friend bought a cordless one recently to do pruning and cutting in the garden.
When choosing a recip saw I look for a number of things – the most important being a quick release blade system. Close behind comes a well-balanced body with the ability to use the blade facing up as well as down and a decently arranged trigger and rear handle.
the Draper 710W is competitively priced for a quality product. It will cut up to 115mm in wood and 10mm in mild steel – very much in the range for light professional users and DIYers.”
