  Handsaw in the sunshine  

Want to work outside in the sunshine, without cumbersome wires?

 

You can with a hand-powered saw!

 
         
     

Easily transported

 
  Tool kit  

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 lighter and can easily access awkward places  

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

 
  No battery power, man sawing stone  

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

 
  No risk of trailing cables with a hand saw, trip hazard sign  

A saw is a manual tool, so there is no risk of trips or falls as a result of trailing electricity cables.

 
         
     

Lower risk

 
  Fast cutting power saw  

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.

 
         
     

Less expensive
