I know this subject has been discussed before, however I guess I
wasn't taking a whole lot of notice to take the detail in.
I seem to be doing a fair few loft floor installations now, and it
crossed my mind that instead of humping my mains powered circular saw
up into the loft with a trailing cable to cut boards to size maybe I
should get me a battery saw for convenience. Nothing fancy, just able
to chop 18mm boards so relatively small blade diameter would be fine.
Accuracy is not a big deal for loft flooring - plus I've made a jig
which runs the circular saw thru a channel to lop the ends off a
Screwfix offer a Ferm 18v saw:
Question is, anyone got one of these and feel it's worth the price
Comes with 2 18v 1.2Ah batteries and a 1 hour charger. I'm not
bothered if I have to swap batteries a couple of times on a job -
sometimes I have to cut 50+ boards to size, I just need to know if
this is up to doing several boards before the battery life is sucked
into oblivion - I need a saw not a fan.
Other suggestions welcome. I don't want to spend a huge amount on
this, so it rules out the DeWalts etc.
