"it cuts through wet & dry branches really easily, just two minor niggles, and they are really minor. 1 the foam cushions front & rear rip off in no time 2 the wing nut on the blade changer comes loose & disappears, one lock washer would solve this. Neither detract from the overall performance 5 star"
"Very flimsy product! Blade cover snapped, foam sleeve split and not as heavy duty as the reviews might lead one to believe. That said, the blade did cut well although it might not get me through to the final cuts. Not a novice DIY-er but a trained engineer. This is a level entry tool so can only recommend, go for the slightly more expensive tool next time."
