What are the benefits of using a hand saw?
|Want to work outside in the sunshine, without cumbersome wires?
You can with a hand-powered saw!
|Most manual saws are considerably smaller and lighter than their powered counterparts and do not require an electricity cable to work. As a result, they can be easily moved from one place to another.
There is even a smaller version of a general purpose hand saw called a toolbox saw. This is small enough to fit into most toolboxes, and so can be taken with you wherever you go.
|Manual saws are also much lighter than power saws so they can be used for sawing in awkward places such as overhead.
Convenient when there’s no power outlet nearby
|Because manual saws are powered solely by human effort, they do not require a power cable or a rechargeable battery.
As a result they can be used even when there is no power supply in reach.
No trailing cables
|A saw is a manual tool, so there is no risk of trips or falls as a result of trailing electricity cables.
|Power saws can cut very quickly and forcefully, and it can be easy to lose control of one if you are not an experienced user.
With a manual saw, your arm is the power source, so when you stop, so does the saw.
|Manual saws are considerably less expensive compared to power saws.
